You’re undoubtedly familiar with the hype: CBD is all the rage. Reported to have its share of health benefits, it’s non-psychoactive, trendy, and even available in the water. But should you drink it?
If people are eating CBD cookies, taking drops, and smoking it, isn’t water a no brainer?
What’s CBD Water?
CBD water is a product of quantum physics, and it is produced with nanotechnology to minimize the size of the CBD particles so that they become water-soluble.
What this does is enable the body to absorb it faster. The recommendations on how much water to drink, varies based on the benefit the consumer is seeking. For example, if consumed with the intent to treat symptoms, 2-10 mg per kilogram of body weight is recommended. However, 10-25 mg is recommended if there is no curative intent.
CBD Water Challenges
Because CBD is so easily absorbed, research questions if nanoparticles can expose the body to biochemicals that it’s not used to. Research to support the possible adverse effects is limited, but the unpredictability is of concern.
CBD & Packaging
Another challenge faced by companies selling CBD water is clear, plastic, packaging. A particular study examined the effects of CBD water stored and found that inevitable light exposure leads to a significant loss of CBD. For this reason, it is also not recommended that one place CBD drops into a bottle of water, as the constant exposure to oxygen and light will weaken the effects of the CBD.
Despite these obstacles, it’s possible that with some adjustments to dosage and packaging, CBD water companies may overcome these challenges and find a way to make CBD water work.
