About Pet Releaf Professional Liposome Hemp Oils

Jan 3, 2019

Pet Releaf Professional 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.

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 & flexible method to give their companions Pet Releaf’s Organic full spectrum CBD hemp oil because it is administered directly on your pet’s food. 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 of Liposome Hemp Oil. 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. Our Liposome Hemp Oils are mixed with a sustainably-sourced Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil making it extremely palatable for more finicky dogs and cats!

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 its 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 directly on their pet’s food 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 Professional Liposomes made?

Pet Releaf Professional 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 Salmon Oil.

Are Pet Releaf Professional Liposomes water soluble?

Yes! Our Liposomes are water soluble. However, we do not recommend placing the oil and leaving it your pet’s open water bowl. The water solubility allows the product to effectively be administered on your pet’s food.
