Valid

In short the answer is YES. Cannabis Hemp has been used used for thousands of years and can now be used for a whole range of products, some of which can be seen in the image above.

But exactly how could the growing of Cannabis and more specifically the strain know as Hemp be so beneficial……Here are some top facts about Cannabis Hemp:

C02 Absorption

Cannabis Hemp absorbs 4 x the amount of Co2 than trees and two crops of Hemp means double the amount of absorption. One hectare of industrial hemp can absorb 22 tonnes of CO2 per hectare. It is possible to grow to 2 crops per year so absorption is doubled. Hemp's rapid growth (grows to 4 metres in 100 days) makes it one of the fastest CO2-to-biomass conversion tools available and is more efficient than agro-forestry.

Deforestation and Timber Use

Hemp growth does not lead to deforestation as the timber industry. Cannabis Hemp can replace any of the products made from timber. No more forests would be needlessly wasted. This would save precious resources and renew the ecosystems. More importantly, it would mean more beautiful heritage to grow for our children.

All the paper we make from trees could be made better by using Cannabis Hemp. We would make more paper per acre. Each Cannabis plant grown saves 12 trees. Cannabis Hemp uses about 1/7 the chemicals in paper manufacture. Right now we cut down about 500 million cubic meters of forest every year. 

Building Sustainable Homes

Cannabis Hemp could be used for particleboards of any size, as well as insulation, drywall, cabinets, and furniture. We could build a house from Cannabis Hemp materials without excess pollution, and without cutting down a single tree.

Paper Production

Today we make 93% of our paper from trees, including cardboard, printing paper, newspaper, etc. We use almost 40% of our forests for timber. This fills our water with nitrates, and that has terrible effects on the ecosystem. Hemp can replace all of these

Bio Fuels

Cannabis Hemp can produce a clean-burning, energy efficient form of fuel, with less cost to the consumer. Already, ethanol is added to gasoline to increase octane levels and efficiency. Cannabis Hemp can easily be fermented into alcohol in the form of ethanol. Small ethanol production stills from corn and other crops already exist. Making ethanol and gasoline from Cannabis Hemp would further reduce CO2 emissions and help regenerate our suffering planet.

Green Energy

It is possible to produce all of our energy with Cannabis Hemp. The unique growing properties of the plant make it the ideal crop for our energy needs. One acre of Cannabis Hemp can produce 1000 gallons of methanol in a single growing season.

Any CO2 released from burning Cannabis Hemp would be the same CO2 the plant had already taken from the environment, creating what is called a closed carbon cycle. A closed carbon cycle system of energy production would slow down the effects of global warming, and with well-implemented plant growth could possibly stop global warming entirely. No other plant on earth could meet the needs of global energy consumption, but Cannabis Hemp could.

Cannabis Hemp can also replace plastic, now wouldn’t that be fantastic! Here are some more amazing facts about Cannabis Hemp.

In this blog we have asked leading Cannabis industry experts to tells us whether they believe ‘Cannabis will be legalised in the UK for recreational use within the next two years?’
 
Whilst Cannabis has been legalised for medicinal use, in theory in the UK, the reality is that the existing infrastructure and lack of knowledge from the medical profession have meant that we haven't seen any prescriptions given as yet in the UK. So what does this mean for the full deregulation of Cannabis, as seen in Canada? 

Thomas Gray, Founder & CEO at Blume Jobs and Business Development Manager at Grow Biotech

“We are first and foremost Patient focused, as that is the immediate issue to be resolved. As long as patients are being denied access, i can’t see that changing for us. I believe the rest of the industry should have a patient focus as well (be it Therapeutic or medical). I think as a by-product of solving the patient problem, the general public will have greater education around Cannabis and its implications on health. Ultimately I think it would be silly to deny that recreational cannabis is very likely in the next few years, but it may not be everyone's focus at the moment.”

Robert Jappie, Head of Cannabis Law, Mackrell Turner Garrett Solicitors:

"The Cannabis industry is growing rapidly in the UK and across Europe. There is a diverse range of CBD products already available, and new ones are becoming available all the time. What's great for businesses in this sector is that the level of knowledge amongst the public is developing. Demand is there and that demand continues to increase, so there is a huge amount of room for the industry to grow. Not only is it a case of building a business and getting quality products out there, it's also about educating the public on what products are available and what they can do. The stigma surrounding Cannabis and CBD use lessens by the day and this gives me a great deal of hope for the legalisation of recreational cannabis.  

In respect of a timeline, I'm quite optimistic. In my view is you'll see the rollout of medicinal cannabis in the next two to three years. We should be having an election here in 2022. I am hopeful that by that point recreational cannabis will be an election issue. I genuinely think this issue will be on the table and there is clearly the political will to take such steps. I think Canada provides an example of how to prepare, arrange, and implement a recreational legal cannabis model. What they did over there wasn't carried out in a cavalier fashion. It involved years and years of planning, and discussions on how to do it right. The UK is at risk of getting left behind. From an economic standpoint, the argument is a no-brainer. I think everyone will be watching Canada to see how things go there. If they have a successful, legitimate industry there, then I can't see why Britain wouldn't want to follow suit."

In a recent article by the Proactive Investors entitled ‘Will the UK ever legalise recreational cannabis?’ their opinion was:

“The UK remains well behind the curve compared to North America. Canada legalised recreational cannabis in October 2018 and has allowed the use of medicinal cannabis since 2011.

While cannabis remains illegal at a federal level in the US, recreational marijuana is now legal in 10 states and medical marijuana is legal in 33.

Thomas, CEO of Sativa Investments, sees the UK following suit on recreational cannabis eventually but not any time soon.

“When I was first interviewed after setting up Sativa Investments in 2017 I was asked when I thought the regulations would change to approve medicinal cannabis in the UK and I said two to three years and it turned out to be four to five months,” he said.

“If you ask me now about recreational use in the UK, I would suggest it was a long way down the road but who knows it does make sense."

Thomas said there is a case for legalising recreational cannabis as it could mean people stop buying high strength cannabis illegally from the streets and start using regulated products with lower levels of THC.

“(Recreational use) is not a position Sativa Investments takes – it’s a medicinal cannabis company – but if I was to put money on it, I should think that we would follow the rest of the countries around the world.”

In conclusion it would seem to be the consensus that we need to resolve the issues surrounding effectively prescribing Cannabis for medicinal use. The increased understanding and destigmatisation that has come as a result of so much publicity surrounding this polorising issue, seems to suggest that the it will be legalised for recreational use however when this might happen is not fully known.

If the question had been asked two years ago regarding whether the medicinal use of Cannabis would be legalised in the UK I don’t think anyone really anticipated how quickly that came about due to the public pressure.

The UN meet again in December to vote on the declassification of Cannabis however in March they decided to postpone this vote indefinitely so it is unlikely they will be the driving factor behind the decision to legalise it. How success this whole process is in Canada will have an influence but one thing is certain if you legalise and regulate the supply of Cannabis it will only help to reduce the instances of the negative impacts of poor quality illegally grown Cannabis, especially for the younger generation.

This week we received the disappointing news that the United Nations have made the decision to delay indefinitely the vote on de-scheduling Cannabis.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) stated in an open letter to the UN, back in February, that it is their recommendation that Cannabis should be de-scheduled.
The World Health Organisation Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD) released a report on Cannabis extract showing evidence that not only is it safe but highlighting that it isn’t addictive. The report also highlights that no public health problems, like driving under the influence have been associated with Cannabis extract. “In humans, Cannabidiol exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential,” wrote the World Health Organization, a U.N. agency that focuses on public health. 
 
What would happen if Cannabis was de-scheduled?
If Cannabis were to be de-scheduled it would not only remove the current red tape that surrounds medical cannabis being prescribed to those who need it but it would also reduce the risk of people buying the product illegally and risking what has been identified in the a recent report as a significant link between high strength illegal cannabis and psychosis in some individuals.
This illegal product is forced to grow using pesticides and poor soil leaving trace metals in the plant. It is then cut down very early in its growth cycle which means the product consists of virtually all THC and no CBD which produces what is know on the street as ‘Skunk’.
 
Would everything go to ‘POT’ if Cannabis was legalised? 
If Cannabis were legalised and regulated it would give people the option to purchase high quality products safely, it would not remove the black market  entirely however it would allow people a choice they currently don’t have. It would also generate thousands of pounds in taxation to support our education, policing and health care systems, as seen in those countries who have legalised Cannabis.
 
It would also resolve the issues surrounding the classification of high quality CBD products which have also been identified by the WHO as fit for human consumption and in no way a danger to health.
 
It is hugely disappointing news as the next available date for a UN vote  on this matter is December 2019 and that is still hanging in the balance. This plant, when treated with respect, grown appropriately and legally regulated can help thousands but right now it is still a political hot potato which shows no sign of being resolved in the near future.

Everywhere you go the CBD craze seems to have taken hold, from the wonderful Canna Kitchen - the Brighton eatery who are rightly being recognised as a truly innovative restaurant for infusing their menu with all things Cannabis related, through to your local coffee house offering to add it to your ‘usual’!

But this fad is a waste of good CBD and here’s why…..
What you may not realise is that by putting it directly into your cuppa every element of the Cannabis /hemp extract will be neutralised. Not only does the heat from the drink do this but the oil is meant to be taken under the tongue for a reason, because when you take it sublingually, for approximately 3 minutes, the vein under your tongue absorbs the CBD oil directly into the blood stream. If you don’t do this or if you take a drink before it has had time to be absorbed the remaining oil will get washed down in to the stomach where it will wiped out - so a total waste.
There are a couple of ways you can add it to your favourite beverage and get the benefits and these are:
BulletProof Coffee
A huge hit with hipster across the pond who want to work hard and play hard…..and get very little sleep! But they did have a point, if you want to make sure you protect this precious oil then mix it with an additional carrier like Coconut oil or butter to protect the molecules from the gastric juices. Then you have a chance of absorbing some of the CBD into your system. Check out how to make this drink at bulletproof.com
Water Soluble CBD 
If you really want to ensure that you are going to receive all of the elements of a product of this type into your system then choose a Water Soluble CBD product. 
Water Soluble CBD is a new, innovative and drinkable alternative to CBD oil, meaning it is completely absorbed in to the body and it comes now with a dropper cap rather than a pump for ease of use. You can add it to hot or cold drinks as, even though it is a lower dosage than our oil, you ingest the full amount of Cannabis extract.
 

Regular CBD products and cannabinoids are fat soluble and are therefore mainly degraded by the stomach if it is not absorbed under the tongue. With the oil there is always an amount that is lost down the side of the mouth and into the gastric system when taken under the tongue, whereas 1mg of our Water Soluble is the equivalent to 20mg of oil due to its bioavailability.  If you would like to learn more about why we believe our water soluble is an innovation and what we mean by bioavailability you can read our blog which explains this in more detail.

This Water Soluble blend dissolves in any drink and makes dropping under the tongue a thing of the past. It also tastes a lot nicer. Since it is soluble in water, you can also use it in a nebulizer so that the active ingredients can be inhaled. 

So please don’t be fooled, putting CBD oil directly into your drink is really a waste of your money and a good product!

Full Spectrum  

Full spectrum CBD oil, unlike CBD isolate products, includes a wide range of cannabinoids present in the cannabis or hemp plant. Depending on the condition and what you are looking to achieve it can provide a greater effect than CBD alone as all the cannabinoids work together in what is known as the entourage effect.

Full spectrum CBD also contains a variety of essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, protein, chlorophyll, terpenes, flavonoids, and fibre. When referring to CBD in the hemp plant, it’s important to understand that Hemp contains a large number of cannabinoids (in trace amounts), but the main compounds are CBD and cannabidiolic acid (CBDa). 

The Entourage Effect

The Entourage Effect is the results (the effect) produced from the synergistic interaction of the cannabinoids, flavonoids, terpenes, and fatty acids naturally found in cannabis. The Entourage Effect refers to the beneficial effect of all these compounds working together as opposed to just one or two of these compounds working in isolation.

Simply put: the Entourage Effect is the benefit you get from ingesting multiple components of the cannabis plant together instead of ingesting one component at-a-time. The cannabis genus of plants contains approximately 500 compounds. This includes about 100 phytocannabinoids (THC and CBD are phytocannabinoids, cannabinoids which occur naturally in plants).

Terpenes and Flavonoids

Other significant compounds found in cannabis plants are terpenoids, flavonoids, and fatty acids. 

Flavonoids are phytonutrients which are responsible for the vivid non-green colours we see in plants. The colour of those shiny red apples and beautiful blueberries is all due to their unique flavonoid profile.

Commonly known flavonoids include catechins (found in green tea) and quercetin (found in cannabis, fruits, and vegetables). Flavonoids are known to have antiviral, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory effects (especially the ones found in cannabis).

Terpenes are the aromatic compounds found in all plants. These compounds are responsible for the uplifting smell of a fresh tangerine or the unmistakable sharpness of pine needles.

Common terpenes are limonene (found in citrus fruits) and linalool (found in lavender). Terpenes have therapeutic effects on the human body. The practice of aromatherapy is based on terpenes.

Bioavailability

Bioavailability is a subcategory of absorption referring to fraction of a compound that reaches the bodies circulatory system. For example, oil taken sublingually under the tongue will lead to a percentage being lost to the gastric system or the liver process.

Carrier oil 

A carrier oil is a vegetable oil derived from the fatty portion of a plant, usually from the seeds, kernels or the nuts. We use Hemp oil for all of our products.

Cannabis/Hemp/CBD Product Types  CO2 extract (CBD paste) 

A CO2 extract is, as the name indicates, a hemp concentrate, where CO2 has been used to extract the active ingredients from the plant material. In addition to the CBD, CO2 also extracts the fats, sugars, leaf green and other substances which don’t add anything if you purely want to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes. CO2 is often used in the food industry to produce extracts, as it literally extracts absolutely everything from the plant material.

A CBD CO2 extract contains approximately 1/3 of wax, which gives it a paste-like structure. Its thickness means a CO2 extract is usually offered in syringes. The bioavailability of a CO2 extract is approximately 6-12%, just like standard CBD oil. This means a mere 6 to 12% is going to be absorbed by the body. The amount of CBD present in a CO2 extract will depend on the type of fibre hemp used, the harvest time, the climate and the extractor’s knowledge.

CBD oils based on a CO2 extract( full plant product)

Most types of CBD oil available on the market have been made from a CO2 extract which has been diluted with oils such as olive oil, hemp seed oil or coconut oil. Hemp seed oil isn’t always as long-lasting and the disadvantage of coconut oil is that it can solidify, causing lumps. Coconut oil needs to be heated up before it can be taken. CBD oil is usually sold in a pipette bottle. The bioavailability is just like the hemp extract (CBD paste), 6-12%. As CBD oil is a diluted version of an extract, this will always contain less CBD compared to a pure extract.

CBD oil based on crystals (isolate)

There are an increasing number of different types of CBD oil now being introduced to the market, which are based on CBD crystals. These crystals are either of natural or synthetic origin, with the difference between the two being indistinguishable. The natural crystals are isolated from fibre hemp and purified in such a way that a solid crystalline substance is formed.

Residual chemicals from the chemical reaction will also remain in the synthetic CBD crystals. The biggest disadvantage of a CBD oil based on crystals is that it’s very difficult to distinguish between natural and synthetic CBD crystals. Synthetic crystals are virtually always sold as natural CBD crystals and oil makers can’t tell the difference without the intervention of a specialised laboratory. Another disadvantage of oil based on CBD crystals is that it purely contains CBD and is therefore missing a whole host of cannabinoids and terpenes, which means the medicinal effect will always be less than CBD oil which also includes all the cannabinoids and terpenes. Isolate of any kind is considered a ‘novel’ food by the FSA 

CBD oil at Nano Level 

The next type of CBD oil is the CBD oil at nano level. CBD crystals or a hemp extract are brought to nano level using ultrasonic frequencies. Those selling this oil have stated the bioavailability is many times higher and this oil – according to the sellers – is therefore much more effectively absorbed by the body.

Effect of Nano CBD oil

Nano CBD is nothing more than CBD with a smaller particle size. Both CBD crystals and hemp extracts are used for the development of nano CBD. It’s like the molecule is reduced in size with the use of ultrasonic frequencies, but the CBD’s lipophilic properties remain the same. Even though Nano CBD is smaller and can therefore be absorbed by the body more easily, the body will still need to bind the Nano CBD to a lipoprotein. This results in a large part of the Nano CBD being broken down in the liver by enzymes.

Nano CBD has been banned and there are also some major risks associated with this technique. For example, you don’t want to take hemp extract at nano level, as any heavy metals and pesticides present in the extract will also have been converted to nano parts and it goes without saying you don’t want these in your body. Nano CBD might be better absorbed by the body than the standard CBD oil, but it does have serious limitations. As is the case with the normal CBD oil and oil based on crystals, the nano CBD oil is also missing
all the other active substances like other cannabinoids and terpenes. There are governmental limitations too, which are currently standing in the way of Nano CBD’s production and sales.

The food authorities in EU have indicated that Nano CBD is ‘Novel' and banned and may not be sold on the market. The authorities have also indicated they will maintain this ban across all Nano supplements in general and therefore also the Nano CBD oil.

The World Health Organization (WHO) Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD) released a report on Cannabis extract showing evidence that not only is it safe but highlighting that it isn’t addictive. The report also highlights that no public health problems, like driving under the influence, have been associated with Cannabis extract. “In humans, Cannabidiol exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential,” wrote the World Health Organization, a U.N. agency that focuses on public health. An open letter from the WHO to the UN has been published advising that they consider deregulating Cannabis, including Hemp which UK CBD is made from, when they meet in March of this year as this article states from Forbes Magazine:  
But how will this impact on CBD?

It is very challenging to keep up with the ever changing regulation around the sale of CBD and cannabis products. However  we hope this information related by meetharmony.com will help make things clearer.

The World Health Organisation just released a number of suggested developments and these are outlined below in relation to CBD and Cannabis

“Deleting” Cannabis from Schedule IV 

The World Health Organisation Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD) finally released their recommendations on cannabis. The UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) expected to pass new scheduling on cannabis in early March 2019 but has been waiting on the WHO’s formal recommendations.

The report recommends cannabis and cannabis resin “be deleted from Schedule IV of the Single Convention on Narcotics Drugs (1961).” This moves cannabis to Schedule I—significantly freeing access, research, and development.  

Pure CBD “Not Included” in Any International Drug Convention

The ECDD recommends that all pure CBD and CBD products containing under 0.2% THC would not be included in any international drug control conventions.

Because “cannabidiol found in cannabis and cannabis resin does not have psychoactive properties and has no potential for abuse and no potential to produce dependence.” 

3. Significantly Simplifying Cannabis

THC in all forms would be removed from the 1971 Convention and placed with cannabis in Schedule I of the 1961 Convention. Grouping all forms of THC in the same category as cannabis and cannabis resin makes classifying cannabis tremendously simpler.

The ECDD said two important things that make this possible:

  • The dangers associated with THC are similar to those of cannabis and cannabis resin, so having them all together in the same category is a matter of consistency.

  • Grouping all THC isomers makes sense when they are difficult to differentiate from each other through standard analysis.

The report provides an example of this disintegration of distinctions in its recommendation to delete extracts and tinctures of cannabis from Schedule I of the Single Convention on Narcotics Drugs (1961).

We hope this makes things a little clearer.

Two months ago my husband Charles O'Sullivan (aka Mr Canni) told me about an idea he had to turn this disused warehouse which hadn't been touched since the 60's, into a temporary homeless shelter with the owner's, Mark Fitzpatrick, permission. I didn't fully appreciate at the time that this was going to be the first of its kind that would be considered 'legal' if he could make it happen.

Fast forward two months and whilst it hasn't been plain sailing it has just been signed off as safe to open its doors to 15 guests and up to 40 if we have any more snow.

An army of volunteers and organisations such as Street Kitchen have rallied round, as well as the local community, via Nextdoor, to deck this place out with a fully functioning kitchen, toilets, showers electrics and so much more. With committed funding from the GLA and local councils, donations have been flooding in of cloths, rugs, food, bedding, sofas, fridges and even a candle which looks like a Bakewell tart!

Here is the most recent article and we hope there will be more to come now that it is going to be officially opened.

Whilst I have been on the sidelines of this project, I have been truly touched and impressed at how everyone has rallied together and it just proves people want to help and will when they know how!

On the left is Charles O'Sullivan whose idea this was and on the right is Mark Fitzpatrick the warehouse owner and yes that is JC in the middle, when they got the chance to tell him all about this pilot and we only hope that it might become one part of the much needed solution to address our every growing homelessness crisis. Check out the video of the project here

 

At the Canni Family we always said we wanted to do more than sell Cannabis oil we hoped to have a social impact as individuals and eventually as a business. Well the Canni Hound has done his bit as a Therapy dog so Mrs Canni better get on with her bit now......to be continued.

Did you know that Hemp is a strain of the Cannabis plant called 'Canabis Sativa L' plant? 

Which is naturally higher in CBD and low in THC but that is not all! Our products contain a full spectrum of other cannabinoids, because the whole plant is used, and the oil comes from a cold pressed process to ensure it contains CBG, CBN, CBC, terpenes and terpenoids with no heavy metals and pesticides. This is why we no longer call our products just CBD as that is just one small part of what the Hemp plant has to offer. 

We are one of the first companies in the UK to offer Cold Pressed, which is known to be the safest and most effective way to ensure all compounds remain active and present in your bottle.

Why high strength oils are not always the best value!

We suggest that you take the amount of drops of our 5% oil or Water-Soluble initially to find our what suits your needs, building up gradually, rather than purchasing expensive high strength bottles.

Our customers were finding that more drops of the lower strength oils made it more affordable and they didn't require higher strength bottles. So we now offer our 5% oil in 3 different sizes and our largest size bottle still cost less that our original Premium Oil which was £89.95. In our original Premium oil there was 10.4mg of CBD per drop - now if you take 5 drops of our new cold pressed 5% oil it is the equivalent amount but at less than a third of the price.  

If you still think you might struggle with taking the number of drops daily that you believe you need from our 5% cold pressed oil range then try our Water soluble as this can be added to a drink and is absorbed completely through the gastric system - so no wastage!

How does our water soluble compare to our Cannabis/Hemp oil?

Cannabis/Hemp oil is a fat soluble substance which means that its bio chemistry isn’t soluble in water. The Canni Family Cannabis/Hemp oil is taken sublingually under the tongue and absorbed through the thin layer of skin, into the vein, and then into the body endocannabinoid system. The active full spectrum components within the oil include CBD, CBN and CBZ which are shown in our independent lab test reports. This is the the traditional and most popular Cannabis product.

However due to the way Cannabis/Hemp oil is taken, only a proportion is absorbed sublingually under the tongue, a percentage is always lost down the sides of the mouth into the stomach where it is made obsolete by the gastric juices. If the Canni Family product is taken as instructed and held under the tongue for 3 minutes, before swallowing or drinking, then adequate amounts are absorbed, although the exact dosage can never be known exactly.

Our water soluble product costs more than our oil and has less Cannabis extract in it so why should you consider it?

Our water soluble delivers the same active full spectrum Canabis Sativa L plant extract into our endocannabinoid system through an innovative processes that converts the fat soluble cannabinoids into water soluble molecules. These molecules are pinned onto Curcumin (aka Turmeric) and are fully absorbed through the lining of the stomach, rather than being lost to the gastric system, meaning that. It can also be added to hot or cold drinks which helps if you or the person who is taking it either can’t wait the three minutes to hold the oil under the tongue or doesn’t like the taste.

The feedback so far from our clients is that our Water soluble has a faster and stronger effect, its pump delivery system makes it easier to use and it has more active ingredients including a 1:1 ratio of Cannabis extract and Turmeric and a few other things to make it taste nicer.  

What is so special about our Water Soluble vs other Cannabis sprays?

The majority of sprays available on the market are still fat soluble, which means you will always lose a certain amount to the gastric system. It is only those that are water soluble that guarantee you will receive the full amount of Cannabis extract into your system.

We hope this makes it clearer and that you can now make your product decision based on the facts.

How does the Water-Soluble work?

A cold pressed Cannabis oil based on BioACTIVE+ will be more effectively absorbed than the standard Cannabis oil, as the BioACTIVE+ contains a complex which acts like a transporter (lipoprotein) to the bloodstream, which means the naturally occurring levels of CBD, found in the Canabis Sativa L plant, won’t first need to be bound to a lipoprotein by the body before it can end up in the bloodstream.

Our Water Soluble was developed to increase the Cannabis extracts bioavailability and to make the it water soluble, ensuring it won’t just be absorbed more effectively, but will also have more application possibilities than the traditional oil-based Cannabis supplements. CBD is a lipid component and has to be metabolised by the body after ingestion, where the body has to bind the CBD to a lipoprotein (transporter) in order to get the CBD into the bloodstream. The body makes the CBD water soluble itself – as a result of the binding to the body’s own lipoprotein. As the body is making the CBD water soluble itself, the naturally occurring CBD can be absorbed in the blood, which, of course, is made up of >90% water. As the body has to carry out a complicated metabolisation itself in order to make the CBD water soluble, almost 95% of the CBD is broken down by the liver during metabolisation and only approximately 5% will eventually reach the bloodstream. The body will have been able to make the 5% CBD which eventually does reach the bloodstream water soluble itself by binding the CBD (lipid) to a lipoprotein.

Our Water Soluble contains an advanced complex which is bound to
the naturally occurring levels of CBD in the Canabis Sativa L plant and acts like a lipoprotein (transporter) to the bloodstream. The bound CBD element is therefore instantly water-soluble. As the CBD is already bound as a result of the
BioACTIVE+ Formula in the supplement, the body won’t need to carry out a complicated metabolisation to get the CBD into the bloodstream. This means >99% of the bound CBD, based on the BioACTIVE+ Formula, will actually be absorbed by the body.

Another advantage of a CBD oil based on the BioACTIVE+ Formula is that all terpenes naturally present in cannabis will result in a full entourage effect and will have some effect on the Cytochrome P450 enzyme system so the active ingredients will be broken down more slowly.

Another tip ...

Now you know a little more about the content and efficacy of various types of Cannabis oil available on the market today, it may well be easier to make the right choice when buying a Cannabis oil and choosing an oil which meets your needs. Do bear in mind that not every oil seller will always have your best interests at heart and therefore always choose a supplier who can provide all of the documentation to prove what is in and more importantly not in their products. Also ask about the techniques used, the analyses and the ingredients, making sure you know it contains exactly what it says on the label.

How does our water soluble spray compare to our Cannabis oil?

Cannabis oil is a fat soluble substance which means that its bio chemistry isn’t soluble in water. The Canni Family Cannabis oil is taken sublingually under the tongue and absorbed through the thin layer of skin, into the vein, and then into the body endocannabinoid system. The active full spectrum components within the oil include CBD, CBN and CBZ which are shown in our independent lab test reports. This is the the traditional and most popular CAnnabis product.

However due to the way Cananbis oil is taken, only a proportion Is absorbed sublingually under the tongue, a percentage is always lost down the sides of the mouth into the stomach where it is made obsolete by the gastric juices. If the Canni Family product is taken as instructed and held under the tongue for 3 minutes, before swallowing or drinking, then adequate amounts are absorbed, although the exact dosage can never be known exactly.

Our water soluble spray costs more than our oil and has less Cannabis extract in it so why should you consider it?

Our water soluble spray delivers the same active full spectrum cannabidiol into our endocannabinoid system through an innovative processes that converts the fat soluble cannabinoids into water soluble molecules. These molecules are pinned onto Curcumin (aka Turmeric) and are fully absorbed through the lining of the stomach, rather than being lost to the gastric system, meaning that. It can also be added to hot or cold drinks which helps if you or the person who is taking it either can’t wait the three minutes to hold the oil under the tongue or doesn’t like the taste.

The feedback so far from our clients is that our Water soluble spray has a faster and stronger effect, its pump delivery system makes it easier to use and it has more active ingredients including a 1:1 ratio of Cannabis extract and Turmeric and a few other things to make it taste nicer.  

What is so special about our Water Soluble spray vs other Cannabis sprays?

The majority of Cannabis sprays available on the market are still fat soluble, which means you will always lose a certain amount to the gastric system. It is only those that are water soluble that guarantee you will receive the full amount of Cannabis extract into your system.

We hope this makes it clearer and that you can now make your product decision based on the facts.
