With the rapid growth of the CBD industry and constant advances in its technology, there are a lot of terms floating around that are unfamiliar, if not confusing, to many people. “Tru Nano” is one of them. While the science and biological make-up of CBD is the subject of much research and scholarly articles, it can all be broken down into simple terms.
The Basics of Cannabidiol (CBD)
Tru Nano CBD starts with the all-natural botanical concentrate that includes the cannabinoids and fatty acids found in hemp plants. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the more than 85 cannabinoids found in various concentrations throughout the different parts of the hemp plant, which is part of the Cannabiceae family. Cannabinoids are class of botanical chemical compounds that deliver an array of benefits.
This CBD is then sent to a lab for third-party verification of quality. Afterward, it is added to or infused into foods, liquids, nutritional supplements, topicals, and even cosmetics. Also, CBD contains no THC, so products made from the isolate are not psychotropic and cannot get you “high”.
Psychoactive V. Psychedelic
The world “psychoactive” gets thrown around a lot to describe the “high” that comes with marijuana. It is also used in regard to the effects you do not get from CBD products. However, this loose definition needs clarification.
Psychoactive substances of any kind cross the blood/brain barrier and cause a chemical reaction within the brain. By this definition, substances such as coffee, alcohol, tobacco and even Robitussin can be defined as having a “psychoactive” effect on people, in that it will cause a chemical reaction in the brain.
Psychedelic substances also cross the blood/brain barrier. The difference is psychedelic substances affect mood or behavior and can even expand consciousness.
CBD Isolate is not psychedelic, in that it does not cause the “high” associated with marijuana. However, it could be considered “psychoactive” by the scientific definition of the term.
Nano-emulsification is what makes all-natural CBD become water-soluble and more bio-available. Tru Nano CBD dramatically affects the absorbability of large, fat-soluble molecules like CBD. Typically, with CBD consumer products, 90% or more of the CBD is wasted because the body simply cannot absorb it. That’s because CBD particles, like all phytocannabinoids, measure about 2,000 nanometers. Human cells can only absorb particles of 60-80 nanometers. A cell cannot fully utilize a particle larger than itself.
Tru Nano CBD products are an extremely absorbable form of cannabidiol. These molecules are all-natural, just made 100x smaller by a proprietary process, as small as 16 nanometers according to recent lab results, meaning that there is literally no waste. The body can utilize virtually all of what you consume.
Bottom line: the smaller particles created by nanotechnology mean dramatically better absorption.
- Greater bioavailability
- Use less of a given product for an even better result
- CBD crosses the blood/brain barriers more efficiently
- When you use Tru Nano ingredients you can count on better results.
