A recent study published by the University of Minnesota about CBD swept across the media. The study announced that high-fat foods were effective at increasing CBD absorption in the body.
As bioavailability or the amount of CBD consumed that ends up absorbed by the body, is generally low - this is great news!
Join us as we dive in and talk about fatty foods, CBD, bioavailability, and how to increase the effectiveness of your next dose:
The study, published here, took a group of 8 patients suffering from refractory epilepsy and split them into two groups. Four fasting individuals went without breakfast in the morning before their dose and the other four individuals ate 840-860 calorie high-fat breakfast burritos before taking their dose.
As many do, this study utilized pharmaceutical-style CBD administration. Test subjects were given capsules filled with CBD isolate. As we know, isolates require higher and more specific dosages than broad or full-spectrum products, so choosing a superior product will boost these already encouraging results.
As we mentioned in the intro, CBD bioavailability is incredibly important as the compound suffers from low absorption in many cases. This is seen in the research being performed on the topic as well as the advances made in product development to help improve absorption. This makes this study all the more important!
The big conclusion is: be sure to take CBD with the healthy, fat-containing foods you already consume! Even though most CBD products contain carrier oils like MCT, fatty foods will help further increase absorption.
This study is just the tip of the iceberg and helps raise many points for discussion.
We hope that further study will uncover important answers so we can further tailor recommendations and help boost the effectiveness of CBD consumption. Until then, the general guidance above will help you get more benefits from the CBD you're already consuming.
