The Evolution of Hormone Balancing
What is Bioavailability?
- Conventional CBD Oil 15% 15%
- Water Soluble CBD Oil 40% 40%
- Felicity Organics Nano Emulsified CBD 90% 90%
CBD is Hemp based and like all plants is oil based. Our challenge is that when CBD oil is extracted, it’s not a good mix for a water based product. The process of nano-emulsifying CBD reduces it particle size to more than a millionth of its normal size, thereby increasing absorption in the body. What this means for you is our CBD ingredient dissolves immediately into our formulation, resulting in more bioavailability. Bioavailability simply refers to the extent with which CBD can be absorbed by the body.
The Leading Edge of CBD
Our unique cannabinoid-profile is reflected in our Broad-Spectrum 0.0% THC Hemp oil, containing naturally occurring cannabinoids and terpenes. 0.0% THC Hemp oil is 70-90% CBD in addition to over 30+ terpenes and other beneficial molecules..
The process employs a nano-sized hydrophilic (water-loving) membrane around the fat-soluble nutrient that produces a formulation that is fast-acting, safe, and exceptionally bioavailable.
Key Advantages of our Nano-Emulsified CBD
Higher Absorption Rates: Our formulation encapsulates fat-based nutrients. This results in higher absorption rates
Stability: Our formula improves the stability of CBD. The result is a longer shelf-life, due to the elimination of potential phase separation.
Versatility: Our nano-CBD easily absorbs in water and lipids, which means it is easily mixed in the formulation.
Concentration: Our formulation allows a larger payload of functional fatty acids, thus eliminating the problem of dosage limitation for many functional ingredients. What this means is a more efficient pairing of the ingredients
In-Depth FAQs on CBD)
How Does CBD Work?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most prevalent cannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis.
The vast majority of these receptors are located in the brain, the central nervous system, and the immune system. Almost every organ in your body, including the skin and digestive tract, comes with cannabinoid receptors.
The endocannabinoid system controls a plethora of major biological functions, including:
CBD works throughout the endocannabinoid system in our bodies by increasing naturally occurring endocannabinoids — thus helping maintain homeostasis (balance) throughout the body.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
A bold statement to say that endocannabinoids are an incredible signaling molecule that all vertebrates produce (including us humans of course!).
The endocannabinoid system was discovered in the last few decades by scientists that were researching cannabis. They recognized that cannabis exerted its effect by mimicking our endocannabinoid system. It appears the main function of the endocannabinoid system is to maintain bodily homeostasis, keeping us biologically in harmony.
Initially it was theorized that these endocannabinoid receptors were only present in the brain and nerves, but leading researchers discovered that these receptors are present in virtually other area of the body including our skin, bones, fatty tissue and most of the major organs.
The endocannabinoid system is involved in a wide variety of processes, including pain perception, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, immune function, and reproductive function. More is to be discovered as this science is still in its infancy.
What is a Nano-emulsion and Why is it Better?
CBD oils and cannabis concentrates are hydrophobic substances. Poor water solubility results in low bioavailability, meaning only a small fraction of cannabinoids are absorbed by the body. Nanotechnology is set to disrupt the health and wellness industry with higher potency and faster onset at lower doses. Welcome to the new world of CBD nano-emulsions!
What is Bio-Availability?
Bio-availability will become the gold standard on criteria of what makes a formula like ours “work” in the body. Bio-availability is the degree to which a substance becomes available to target cells. The more bio-available a dose, the lower the quantity needed to experience effects. Which is why you should not pay attention to total milligrams but focus on the bio-availability of the mgs that are provided!
Bio-availability is critically important. The most effective way to increase the effect of CBD without taking more is actually to enhance its bio-availability. Oil-based products like CBD oils and creams designed for ingestion or topical use, have a relatively low bio-availability because the CBD molecule is hydrophobic – meaning it doesn’t mix well with water.
In-Depth, What Exactly is a Nano-Emulsion?
Oil-in-water emulsions are mixtures wherein water is the continuous phase and oil is the dispersed phase, often stabilized by one or more emulsifiers, also named surfactants. These surfactants can be natural or artificial, and they are used to literally make oil and water mix.
Emulsions can be macro, micro, or nano, according to dispersed phase particle size. Nanooemulsions are produced by ultrasonic liquid processors that break the dispersed phase down into 10–1,000nm (nanometer) droplets. These droplets are much smaller than the range for conventional macroemulsions (0.1–100µm), and they can be easily carried through the body by a water-based compound of choice. Practically speaking, the smaller you can break up your cannabinoid, the more it will be able to penetrate your tissues alongside water.
Our ingredient list includes natural emulsifiers that are graded as totally acceptable and non-harmful by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR).
How Much CBD Should I Take and How Often?
The suggested daily serving size of our CBD oil is 10 – 20 mg CBD per day depending on your weight, and how CBD affects you individually. As we described in the FAQ above, nanoemulsification increases bioavailability. Our airless jar dispenses exactly 10mg of CBD per application. This is comparable to 40mg to 50mgs of regular CBD oil. We stress getting hormone tested and working under the care of a health care practitioner that is an expert in bioidentical hormone balancing. There is no one size fits all and individual results will vary.
Is all CBD the same?
Absolutely not. While growing, the the quality of the CBD is impacted by the quality of the hemp and subject to variables including the genetics of the plant, growing conditions, how the hemp is cured and stored. Other factors including the method of extraction, equipment, personnel experience, and refining processes play a significant role in the quality of the CBD.
What is the Difference between Full-spectrum and Broad-spectrum?
A full-spectrum oil/finished product has various cannabinoids including CBD, CBDV, CBG, CBN, CBC, and THC (<0.3%). A true broad-spectrum oil/finished product will also have a cannabinoid-rich profile. However, broad-spectrum does not contain THC. Our product is broad spectrum with 0.0% THC
I'm local to Veronica and Michael and was totally in when they told me they wanted a few friends to try their new cream. I never have been able to fix my hormones. I'm feeling better after a few weeks and looking forward to their actual clinical testing coming up so I can possibly participate. Amazing! Ceci
I've been able to try this new cream out as I am involved in sourcing the CBD. As a lady in her late 50s I know all too well the hot flashes and other issues i'm facing as I age. This combination is amazing and I can't wait until it is commercially available
When I first heard about progesterone and how it was to be combined with CBD, I wanted to be one of the first to try. I've been using a bioidentical progesterone cream for several years. This one has a great smell to it and it rubs in without an oily residue. Very luxurious feeling to it. Love the automatic dispensing amount. I was always worried about wasting too much or not having enough. problem solved. I did notice the CBD effect. very calming and tranquil. Jenny
