CBD oil is a hydrophobic (water-hating) buttery substance and is not water-soluble. Simply meaning, it is not able to dissolve and incorporate into water (like alcohol or sugar). Oily substances, like CBD oil or vinegar, are repelled by water which forces them to stay separated from it.
CBD oil, however, can be made compatible with water if it is put through nanoemulsions, allowing the CBD to blend with the mixture and hold long-term stability.
This form of CBD comprises molecules smaller than those found in liposomal CBD.
Nanoemulsions are today's best method of creating water-soluble CBD oil. These products are created by breaking up cannabis extract into 10-100 nanometer droplets.
As research on the different cannabinoids and terpenes - and other substances produced by the cannabis plant - progresses, more and more testimonies are ensuring their effectiveness. Although more in-depth research is still required on these compounds and their action on the human body, the use of cannabinoids such as CBD to treat pet ailments is becoming more common, as many users have realized the enormous benefits that can behave in some cases.
In a study published by Blessing et al., They explained the interaction between CBD and several receptors within the endocannabinoid system in order to alleviate problems based on anxiety.
New clinical evidence using animal models indicates that CBD functions in terms of reducing anxiety levels in anxiety-based disorders (such as OCD). In addition, in human models, CBD is studied as a powerful treatment to reduce anxiety levels. This could be used to improve the quality of life in people who suffer from OCD.
Although preclinical and clinical evidence is available on the success of cannabinoids in decreasing anxiety levels, more research is needed to offer a more complete cannabinoid treatment for OCD and know how to prevent the obsessions and compulsions suffered by the patient. At the moment, cannabinoids can help control the anxiety produced by this time-consuming disorder.
