4. The Verdict
Everyone who buys CBD is looking for two things:
First, they want a fast-acting product that they can feel quickly. Second, they want CBD that their bodies can absorb efficiently. If that’s true for humans, why wouldn’t it also apply to our furry friends?
CBD vapes and edibles have long been touted as the most efficient way to use CBD.
But that begs a question:
“What’s really the best way to consume CBD?”
Traditional CBD delivery methods are outdated. There’s a new way to consume CBD efficiently, according to new research in the American Journal of Endocannabinoid Medicine.
SOL*CBD’s patent-pending CELLg8® liposomal delivery system is a quantum leap in the development of fast-acting, powerful hemp extracts.
According to the study, the body can absorb liposomal CBD extracts 17 times better than archaic delivery systems like vapes or edibles. (Click here to tweet)
Now, we’re developing these cutting-edge extracts for a new kind of CBD consumer:
Man’s best friend—our loyal dogs.
In this post we’ll explore:
Want to hear something crazy?
Humans have cultivated hemp for millennia and used it in everything from folk medicine to construction materials.
CBD, an organic compound found in hemp, influences several physiological processes like:
But don’t just take our word for it.
The traits of cannabinoids are well-documented in mammal subjects, and you can find plenty of information about them on the internet. But what does that have to do with your dog?
The Pet Formula of our liposomal CBD was developed by building on what we learned developing the human version. It uses all the same pathways and bodily systems as our human formula.
That’s why it’s so groundbreaking. It’s just as bioavailable as our liposomal CBD for humans, making it 17 times more effective than other methods. It also utilizes the “entourage effect,” a way for multiple cannabinoids to enhance one another when present in an extract.
In other words:
Liposomal CBD is faster-working and more potent than any other kind of CBD you can find for your dog. (Click here to tweet)
You may be wondering:
“What does bioavailability even mean and what does it have to do with CBD extracts?”
Quite a bit, as a matter of fact. According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), bioavailability measures a substance’s ability to:
…be absorbed and used by the body. Orally bioavailable means that a drug or other substance that is taken by mouth can be absorbed and used by the body. 
In other words, the more bioavailable something is, the faster and more efficiently it works. Because liposomal CBD helps boost the bioavailability of CBD, it makes a potent new delivery method.
If liposomes are so great, what are they?
To quote the National Center for Biotechnology Information:
“Liposomal encapsulation technology (LET) is the newest delivery technique used by medical investigators to transmit drugs that act as curative promoters to the assured body organs. This form of delivery system proposal targeted the delivery of vital combinations to the body.” 
In other words:
Liposomes are microscopic spherical sacs made of phospholipids, the same organic compounds that make up our cell walls. Liposomes are part of a family of chemicals called self-emulsifying drug delivery systems, or SEDDS.
Because of their chemical makeup—featuring an outer layer made up of water-repellant lipids and an inner layer comprised of water and other dissolved substances—pharmaceutical and cosmetic companies use liposomes to deliver chemical payloads into the body.
They’re extremely robust structures that protect their cargo from hazards like oxidation and degradation. This cargo can include anything from life-saving drugs to other compounds like CBD, vitamins, minerals, and more. (Click here to tweet)
Although scientists discovered liposomes more than 50 years ago, they weren’t used to deliver drugs in the 90s. The first pharmaceutical to utilize a liposome delivery was a cervical cancer treatment called Doxil, which first appeared in 1995. 
Here’s why that matters:
According to research, liposomes offer a “high level of bioavailability and absorption compared with other oral forms of supplements.” They’re also remarkably “cost-effective by being able to take a lower dose for the same effect.” 
But what does that have to do with liposomal CBD?
That’s where things begin to get exciting.
A new type of CBD delivery method, the CELLg8® hemp liposome, is primed to revolutionize the entire CBD industry. This new technology is an effective delivery system for CBD that may increase potency by 1700 percent.
Now, we’re making it available to dogs for the first time.
Cellg8® method is the brainchild of Valimenta Labs, a Colorado-based biotech company that’s been hard at work perfecting the new liposome delivery system. Through their own testing, Valimenta has independently verified a “dramatic increase of the active compounds in the blood when consumed using CELLg8®.” 
Here’s the result:
An advanced delivery system that can successfully carry more of its payload than other “nano” products available on the market.
But while Valimenta is focusing its efforts on using this technology for nutritional supplements like workout aids, at SOL*CBD, we’re applying it to hemp oil. And a new study published in the American Journal of Endocannabinoid Medicine confirms the safety and effectiveness of CELLg8®.
What exactly did researchers find from this study?
First, they took a sample size of 10 healthy adults ranging in age from 25 to 70, all from Colorado. Each of the subjects took 10 milligrams of CELLg8® Liposomal Hemp (a type of CELLg8® with cannabinoids infused into it) every day for one month.
During that time, researchers administered 340 blood tests to the subjects that measured two main variables: comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP) and complete blood count (CBC).
A CMP is a wide-spectrum blood test that cross-references factors like blood sugar, fluid balance, and kidney and liver function to paint a picture of a subject’s metabolic rate.  A CBC, in contrast, assesses a participant’s overall health by checking their levels of proteins, platelets, and blood cells. 
The outcome was interesting:
Out of 340 tests, 339 came back with CMP and CBC levels that were the same as or better than when the participants began the study. No participant used CBD before the study began, so none of them had any built-up tolerance to cannabinoids.
The results also show that liposomal CBD is safe to use. In addition, they implied several beneficial changes, including regulated blood sugar levels. Finally, every participant said that they would consider continuing their liposomal CBD regimen in the future.
Researchers conducting the study acknowledged the need for more testing to verify the results. These early tests are promising, though. Because cannabinoids work on humans and other mammals the same way, it’s safe to assume that these results also apply to dogs.
Our new liposomal CBD isn’t a chemical one-trick pony, though. It’s built on solid foundations as a premium full-spectrum extract that can stand on its own.
RELATED: Will CBD Help Me?
In the world of CBD, there are three main types of extracts: isolate, full-spectrum, and broad-spectrum. For now, we’ll be focusing on isolate and full-spectrum CBD extracts.
While isolate features the highest total CBD content of any extract, it’s a paper tiger. Users may get the most bang for their buck, but it actually takes more than CBD to experience the beneficial effects of hemp oil.
You might be wondering, “How does that work?”
It’s due to a unique trait among cannabinoids called the “entourage effect.” Cannabinoids are great team players: when there’s more than one present in an extract, they enhance each other’s benefits.
Full-spectrum CBD extracts address that issue. They’re made up of all the cannabinoids one would find naturally in a hemp plant. That includes CBD, but also its chemical cousins like CBN, CBG, and more than 100 other unique cannabinoids.
RELATED: What is Full-Spectrum CBD?
This is possible because all cannabinoids affect the endocannabinoid system of mammals, so they all utilize similar modes of action in the bodies of vertebrates.
Additionally, full-spectrum extracts also contain a family of organic compounds called terpenes. These are aromatic compounds that plants develop naturally and provide an extract with unique flavors, smells, and effects.
The end product is a more well-rounded and effective extract, capable of imparting robust effects upon a user than CBD isolate can.
Researchers are looking toward cannabinoids as possible treatments for conditions like Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia, diabetes, and anxiety.
The FDA states that there’s not enough information to support using CBD as a substitute for any drug used to treat these symptoms yet. 
CBD is also recognized as being generally extremely safe. While some users have reported side effects, these are minor and include symptoms like dry mouth and drowsiness. 
Although hemp extract and marijuana both come from the same plant family, it’s important to stress that hemp won’t get you high.
That’s because THC, the cannabinoid responsible for pot’s psychoactive effects, doesn’t appear in hemp plants. In fact, CBD may actively counteract the effects of THC.
The 2018 Farm Bill made it illegal to manufacture or sell any hemp extract with more than 0.3 percent THC. We’ve specially formulated our Liposomal CBD for Pets to comply with these strict quality control standards.
If you’re looking at buying CBD for your dog, you may already be familiar with the effects it has on your own body.
Cannabinoids can help regulate the several functions that the body performs unconsciously, like inflammation and immune system response. They may also promote feelings of tranquility and calm.
Because of this, humans have used CBD extracts as folk medicine for thousands of years. One of the earliest recorded human use of hemp extract dates back 2,000 years to ancient China when emperors would treat toothaches and other minor pain with CBD-infused teas. 
Dogs can enjoy these benefits by taking CBD extracts as well. For example, owners can utilize CBD to help an older pet stay spry and active. In contrast, if you have a high-energy dog with pent-up anxiety, CBD can help them chill out.
That’s not all, though:
At SOL*CBD, we’re currently researching possible ways to relieve the symptoms of dog arthritis with liposomal CBD extracts.
Additionally, our specially formulated Liposomal CBD recipe uses significantly fewer oils than other commercially available hemp extracts for pets. As a result, it’s easier for your dog’s liver to process.
And the kicker?
So, how can you administer liposomal CBD to your pet?
We suggest introducing liposomal CBD to your dog as a food additive, not a treat. That’s because maintaining a regular diet is an important part of promoting a dog’s digestive health.
Our full-spectrum Liposomal CBD for Dogs is water-soluble, so you can add it to your pet’s water or food and trust that your canine companion will receive a full dose.
If your dog is taking any medication, talk to your vet before introducing CBD into their diet. Cannabinoids may inhibit the effects certain drugs have on the body, like blood thinners. 
If you’re looking for one of the most powerful and effective CBD extracts for your furry friend, you can’t go wrong with our Liposomal CBD for Dogs.
With a cutting-edge way to get CBD into your pet’s bloodstream fast and efficiently, it’s 17 times more effective than other extracts on the market. You won’t find a better CBD extract for your dog anywhere else. Check out our Liposomal CBD for Dogs at our online store.
