WHAT IS WATER-SOLUBLE CBD?
To make things short and sweet, CBD tincture can’t be mixed into water, as oil and water don’t mix. If you place CBD tincture into water, you’ll notice that the two will separate rather than infuse together. So when it comes to CBD beverages or mixes, how can CBD be infused into them so seamlessly? The answer is water-soluble CBD.
Water-soluble CBD describes cannabinoids (the class of biological compounds found in the cannabis plant,) that are broken down into very small particles so that they can blend easily with water. When searching for water-soluble CBD to use, you’ll notice that they’re often in the form of powders or droplets. At Zolt, our water-soluble CBD is sold in the form of drink mixes, available in two forms—Hemp CBD isolate and full-spectrum hemp.
There are a few reasons why someone might want to use water-soluble CBD. For one, it has high bioavailability, in other words, a high absorption rate. This means that it is able to circulate in the body and its bioactive properties will take their effect quickly.
Another reason why someone may prefer water-soluble CBD is that it is tidy and versatile. We know that it can mix easily into beverages, which allows you to make a CBD tea, and that is something tinctures and gummies cannot do. And for those who aren’t a large fan of the flavor of CBD tincture, water-soluble CBD makes a great option as you won’t get that earthy flavor or odor like some CBD products have.
