Microencapsulation is a cutting-edge technology that entraps active compounds with other material by forming a wall around them. The result of this process is a product called microcapsules, which generally range from 1-2000 microns. There are two primary methods used for the microencapsulated process; Spray drying and conservation. The latter causes microcapsule cores to form a viscous microcapsule wall, which is solidified using cross-linking agents. Despite previous issues with coacervation microcapsules sticking together, our technology employs a proprietary method of preparing conservation microcapsules which are capable of being frozen and dried optimally. This is the optimal technology to deliver the wonderful benefits of PhenoPen’s CBD hemp extract where it counts most.
The main benefit of microencapsulated when it comes to taking CBD is that it offers the slow and targeted release of the active compounds from hemp. When medication or natural compounds are taken orally they need to navigate the long and treacherous path through the stomach and digestive tract before entering into the bloodstream and taking effect. That results in much of the ingredients being lost due to things like stomach acid and other degrading factors. Microcapsules begin to open soon after entering the stomach. Pancreatic enzymes then offer a targeted release of the active compounds inside. This results in the delayed and targeted release of CBD in the capsules for potent and long-lasting effects.
Microcapsules are the ideal solution for people wanting to take CBD orally but without the accompanying issues of softgels or pills. Microcapsules don’t degrade as soon as they enter the stomach as with regular pills. Microcapsules offer the added benefit of being completely odorless and tasteless, a factor that’s crucial for many users. Microcapsules are beneficial for many reasons:
- Increased stability
- Increased bioavailability
- Triggered Release
- Targeted Delivery
- Easy to swallow
