What is Nano CBD and how is it made?

Nano CBD is a type of cannabidiol (CBD) that has been processed into very small nanoparticles, typically less than 100 nanometers in size. These small particles increase the bioavailability and absorption rate of CBD in the body, allowing for more effective and efficient delivery of the compound. Nano CBD is often used in products such as oils, tinctures, creams, and edibles, and is claimed to have faster onset of effects and increased potency compared to regular CBD. However, more research is needed to fully understand the benefits and potential risks of nano CBD.

To make nano CBD, you will need CBD oil, a carrier oil such as MCT oil, and a high-pressure homogenizer or sonicator.

Here's a step-by-step guide:

1. Choose the desired potency of your nano CBD. Determine the amount of CBD oil needed based on the desired final concentration.

2. Dilute the CBD oil with a carrier oil, such as MCT oil, in a ratio of 1:9. For example, if you have 1g of CBD oil, mix it with 9g of MCT oil.

3. Warm the mixture slightly to make it easier to work with, but avoid overheating.

4. Once the mixture is warmed, transfer it to a high-pressure homogenizer or sonicator, which uses high-pressure and/or ultrasound waves to break down particles into smaller sizes.

5. Process the mixture with the high-pressure homogenizer according to the manufacturer's instructions. This will help reduce the particle size of the CBD oil droplets, making it more bioavailable and potentially improving absorption and effectiveness.

6. After processing, check the particle size distribution using a particle size analyzer (dynamic light scattering or laser difffraction instruments are common.) The goal is to achieve a uniform and small particle size for better bioavailability.

7. Store the nano CBD mixture in a dark, airtight container away from direct sunlight and heat to maintain its stability.

It's worth noting that creating nano CBD requires specialized equipment and expertise. Consulting with a professional or partnering with a company that specializes in nanoemulsion technology may be necessary for optimal results.
