Want to reap the benefits of CBD without getting your hands sticky? Try water-soluble CBD powder. The name says it all: it dissolves in water.
But why the emphasis on water-soluble CBD powder? CBD and THC are oils that will not mix with water. CBD oil drops added to water will result in the oil floating to the surface, looking like tiny little balls on the surface of your drink.
Water-soluble CBD powder allows you to have fast absorption and ease. All you need to do is add it to your water bottle, sip, and enjoy!
But what is CBD powder? This article will take a closer look at this rising trend and help you choose the best water-soluble CBD powder.
Looking for a quick, simple way to find your center? Well, now you can with this single-serving powder that's always handy.
You can enjoy CENTR any time, whether in the morning to set your intentions for the rest of it or as a mid-afternoon treat.

What is water-soluble CBD?
Let's look at water-soluble CBD; what is it, what makes it soluble, and how do they work?
How does CBD powder work?
CBD is not a naturally soluble substance. This is because CBD is a cannabinoid, and cannabinoids are hydrophobic.
What does it mean if a substance is hydrophobic? A hydrophobic substance will be repelled by water and unable to bond to water molecules.
Since CBD is not soluble, manufacturers need to make it soluble for consumers to dissolve it into liquid.
Here's how they do this:
CBD is isolated into smaller molecules so they can dissolve in a liquid more easily. Emulsion helps the nanoparticles to become more compatible with water and avoids the 'beading' that occurs with regular oil-based particles.
Additionally, the absorption rate increases as the tiny CBD particles do not travel through the digestive system. Instead, they can move directly into the bloodstream before passing into the cells.
The science behind CBD powder
It's no surprise if you feel the science of CBD powder is too complex to get your head around. Luckily for you, it seems more overwhelming than it actually is.
Despite the overwhelming exterior, CBD powder science comes down to two main components:
- How CBD is made into nanoparticles: nanotechnology
- How the body absorbs the particles: bioavailability
Both nanotechnology and bioavailability affect how your body absorbs CBD powder and determine the quality of CBD powder.
Let's take a closer look at these two fundamental processes.
What is Nanotechnology?
Nanotechnology helps hydrophobic particles to mix easier with water molecules. Because CBD is one of these hydrophobic types, nanotechnology is a shoulder to lean on for many companies pursuing an interest in effective CBD drinks and powders. Thanks to nanotechnology, producers can make water-soluble CBD powders that consumers can enjoy and their bodies can absorb.
How does Nanotechnology work?
Ultrasonic waves transform the CBD particles into smaller nanoparticles. These nanoparticles can only be seen under a microscope; they're that small! The ultrasonic waves create a pressure that explodes the original particles into tinier particles typically measured in nanometers (one billionth of a meter).
Because of their size, our bodies can absorb the nano CBD particles directly into our bloodstream. In addition to creating nanoparticles for easier absorption, CBD is combined with an emulsifier. This emulsifier aids the oil-based particles in combining with liquid and helps to increase the CBD absorption rate in our bodies.
What is Bioavailability?
Bioavailability describes how available a particle (in this case, CBD nanoparticles) is for your body to absorb.
How does bioavailability affect CBD products and our bodies?
Although it doesn't seem so from outside appearances, our bodies are composed of a great deal of water. This is why water-soluble CBD is highly effective in absorption and bioavailability.
Nanoparticles tend to form a greater surface area and, as such, are more 'available' in your body, and your body can absorb a more significant amount.
The difference with oil-soluble particles is that their bioavailability is much lower than water-soluble particles. For this reason, more is needed for the same effect. Oil-based particles are also not absorbed directly into the bloodstream.
As a result, less is absorbed as there is some waste from the metabolism process, and the absorption rate is also slower.
Why Choose Water-Soluble CBD Powder?
We know that water-soluble has increased bioavailability and rapid absorption rates, but what are the other benefits of water-soluble CBD?
They're portable and perfect for on-the-go use.
Don't want the hassle of measuring drops out of a tincture bottle? Or maybe you're keen to stay hydrated and make hitting your water goals as easy as opening a sachet. Then CBD powders are right up your alley. Each proportioned sachet can be added straight to your water bottle. Or, add them to whichever drink you fancy! They're adaptable, easy, and ideal to fit into your lifestyle.
