CBD absorption and bioavailability refer to the transfer of CBD from where it is first administered (under the tongue, on the skin etc.) to its introduction into the bloodstream of the body. Once CBD is in the bloodstream, it can be transported throughout the body. While in the body, CBD will interact with the cannabinoid receptors CB(1) and CB(2) and other non-cannabinoid receptors to begin its effects. CB(1) receptors heavily exist within different brain regions and in lower amounts widespread throughout the body. CB(2) receptors are more restricted in their distribution and are often found in immune cells and sometimes neurons.

The way CBD is consumed affects how it is absorbed into the body. Bioavailability is dependent on how the CBD is consumed and refers to how much something is absorbed by the bloodstream. According to a study conducted by the University of Nottingham, fatty acids and triglycerides can significantly increase bioavailability.

The most common way to take CBD is orally with products such as JuJu Royal Gummies. When CBD is ingested it is absorbed by the digestive system. Sublingual consumption, which often involves the use of a CBD tincture, is another way to consume CBD. When CBD is held beneath the tongue it is absorbed by the sublingual gland. It is recommended to keep the CBD under the tongue for about 30-60 seconds because the mucus membranes of the mouth help absorb the compounds of the CBD.

The hemp flower can be smoked, which allows consumption of CBD through inhalation. Our JuJu Royal Pull Vape Battery is a product commonly used for inhalation of vaporized CBD oil from cartridges. Through this process the lungs are responsible for absorbing the CBD through the alveoli, which are tiny air sacs of the lungs that allow for rapid gaseous exchange.

Topicals, such as the JuJu Royal Nano Repair Cream, are absorbed through the skin of the body because CBD is permeable to the skin through its pores. Through this process it is not common for the CBD to enter the bloodstream; however, once it is absorbed through the skin the CBD is able to interact with cannabinoid receptors.

There are a variety of ways to consume CBD and there is something for everyone. How you chose to consume CBD is dependent upon preference and purpose of consumption. That is the beauty of CBD, variety and the opportunity to take care of your body in new and unique ways.
