Some studies on pet CBD suggest that CBD can be more effective when given in a liposomal formulation. So what is liposomal CBD? And how can it help pets? Liposome Hemp Oils are the most convenient way for your pet to receive the maximum benefits of Pet Releaf’s Organic full-spectrum CBD hemp oil. We will explain what makes liposome hemp oils unique and how they work in our Ultra Releaf Hemp Oil.
Why Did We Create Liposome Hemp Oils?
At Pet Releaf, it’s our goal to innovate products that meet the needs of every single pet. Liposomes offer pet parents a more convenient and flexible method to give their companions Pet Releaf’s Organic, full-spectrum CBD hemp oil because it is administered during or after mealtime.
In fact, our Liposome Hemp Oils absorb into the bloodstream 3x faster than our traditional CBD hemp oils when administered on food, allowing pet parents to give less oil daily and in turn get 3x more use out of a single bottle. Beyond the convenience of administration, we also wanted to give our customers another mixing agent to select from when picking an oil product for their pet.
What are Liposomes?
Liposomes are a technology used as a delivery system for supplements and certain medications that traditionally lose effectiveness when hit by the gastric acids in the stomach during the digestion process. Cannabinoids, like CBD, when consumed in their raw form, are greatly impacted by these gastric acids. This is why with our current line of organic, full-spectrum CBD hemp oils we recommend administering them directly in your pet’s mouth for max absorption, to avoid the digestive process. Liposome oil technology allows pet parents to administer our CBD hemp oil during mealtime without the product losing any effectiveness!
What is a Liposome?
A Liposome is a fancy word for a lipid (fat) layer that surrounds a particular molecule to protect it from the gastric acids in the stomach. Our Liposomes are made primarily from a highly beneficial Sunflower Lecithin sourced from Spain. The easiest way to think of this is like a Peanut M&M. Our full spectrum cannabinoids found in our raw CBD hemp oil are the peanut and the chocolate layer is the Sunflower Lecithin. The lipid layer is sacrificial, meaning when the product is consumed, that layer protects the CBD through the digestive process and is then destroyed so that the CBD can be absorbed directly into the intestines.
How Are Pet Releaf Liposomes Made?
Pet Releaf Liposomes contain the exact same organic, full-spectrum hemp extract found in all other Pet Releaf products. However, the Liposomes have gone through a process of microencapsulation (the process of surrounding our full-spectrum hemp extract with that protective Sunflower Lecithin layer). Once microencapsulated, the Liposomes are mixed with a Wild Alaskan Red Pollock Oil.
Are Pet Releaf Liposomes Water Soluble?
Yes! Our Liposomes are water-soluble. However, we do not recommend placing the oil and leaving it in your pet’s open water bowl. The water solubility allows the product to effectively be administered during your pet’s mealtime.
