Why nanoemulsion CBD? Size matters.

The ultra-tiny particle size of the CBD in our AerosourceH NanoEmulsion CBD allows easier absorption into the body for higher bioavailability.  This means that more of the CBD actually ends up being utilized by your body.

What is NanoEmulsion CBD?

Our AersosourceH Nano CBD Oil is a microencapsulated nanoemulsion CBD in purified water.  Being water-based instead of oil-based, it mixes easily with any liquid.  The term “nano” means one one-billionth, and in this case, refers to a product in which the CBD oil has been broken into ultra-tiny droplets that are less than 100 nanometers wide.  That is less than 0.0001 millimetres!  By comparison, an average human hair is approximately 80,000 nanometers wide.  A piece of paper is about 100,000 nanometers wide [1].

The less than 100-nanometer particle size of our Nano CBD allows for greater bioavailability, meaning the CBD is more efficiently utilized by the body.

AerosourceH Nanoemulsion CBD combines purified water, long-chain triglycerides, emulsifiers, and CBD.  While an emulsion simply refers to a mixture of oil and water, our Nanoemulsion CBD is made using our proprietary process that sends sound waves to break down the particle size of the CBD oil to below 100 nanometers for faster absorption and increased bioavailability (learn more about Nano CBD and its advantages here: AerosourceH Nano CBD ).

  This type of product is known as nanoemulsion CBD and is used “in diverse areas such as drug delivery, food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and material synthesis” [1].

We produce our NanoEmulsion CBD in 2.5% (25 mg/mL) and 5% (50 mg/mL) concentrations, with a particle size of less than 100 nanometers.  These concentrations, coupled with the higher bioavailability of the small particle size, are appropriate for many CBD users.  However, some people prefer an even more potent option to allow a higher amount of CBD per usage, to use less of their chosen CBD product at once or to get the most cost-effective form of CBD by having the highest concentration per drop.

While “Li et al62 concluded from their data that the size of 100 nm might be the most suitable size for oral delivery of nanoparticles” [2], it has also been shown in a 2016 study by Banerjee et al. that absorption of nanoparticles “was inversely related to their size, with the uptake of 50 nm > 200 nm > 500 nm > 1000 nm” [3].   This means that as the particle size gets smaller, the bioavailability increases. 

Getting the Best Value From Your CBD Purchase


With so many CBD options in the marketplace, how do consumers know they are spending their money wisely?  It depends largely on CBD potency, bioavailability, and product quality.  Potency is the amount of CBD contained in a product.  Bioavailability is how much of that CBD is usable/absorbed by the body.  Quality depends on whether the product contains what is claimed, combined with the manufacturing conditions of the producer.
