Water is probably the most important substance on Earth. Plants need it to grow, animals to survive, and human beings are also made of it. So, is there anything more important and healthier than water? Probably not. But researchers have recently found a great combination: CBD water.
CBD is up-and-coming and available in many forms, from gummies, beer, and wine, to now water. Experienced consumers have reported on the benefits of the cannabinoid, indicating that it helps them alleviate pain and inflammation. Users say that CBD feels like a wave of sensations that diminish anxiety symptoms, providing a calming effect.
What Is CBD Water?
CBD water is made by infusing water with CBD particles. Water companies use nanoemulsion technology to help CBD oil molecules to interact with water. Producers claim that nanotechnology helps decrease CBD particle size and boost the body’s ability to absorb the cannabidiol. They also ensure that water fits better in our body than CBD oil, although more scientific research is needed to confirm this potential benefit.
It is known that CBD has therapeutic benefits, most of them helping to avoid anxiety and regulating sleep. Studies made in the last 20 years suggest that CBD offers therapeutic value in treating chronic pain and inflammation. Water could have a similar effect on the body as oil or gummies do in the proper doses.
Not enough CBD in Water?
Even though producers say that water containing CBD has all the cannabinoid’s benefits, some are not convinced. Enthusiasts and some experts argue that the amount of CBD in each bottle wouldn’t be enough to be useful.
However, there are no conclusive studies on what dose is the suitable one. Studies on CBD benefits are made with at least 50 mg up to 300 mg to find and establish any result. Taking CBD oil as an example, a 10ml bottle of CBD oil contains about 200 drops and 1000 mg of CBD. Each drop will contain 5 mg of CBD.
Yet, diversity in consumers presents situations where the amount of CBD in water is sufficient. For people looking to increase their water intake, having the option of adding a little CBD to the habit is a plus. Also, some consumers respond differently to different dosages, and for those who can’t tolerate great amounts of the cannabinoid might feel attracted to this product.
CBD storage represents another issue to some detractors. A CEO from a Canadian biopharmaceutical company alleged in a Forbes report that the plastic containers used to store CBD water are not suitable. It is known that CBD could go bad when it contacts air and sunlight. For that reason, producers store CBD oil in dark glass containers to avoid sunlight and air from going through it.
But the CBD industry is constantly growing, and producers are adapting CBD in everyday products the best way possible. It wouldn’t be rare that, in the future, special packages are created for CBD water.
Look for a Certificate Of Approval (COA)
The CBD world is a young industry growing each year, and many producers do a great job in presenting a legitimate product. Nevertheless, if you want to be sure that what you are buying is what it claims to be, look for the Certificate Of Approval (COA) label in the product. It proves its authenticity, showing the CBD received the proper tests, and the producer went through all the steps to be transparent. Most reputed brands have third-party lab testing labels as well.
