New Water-Soluble Ingredient Revolutionizes CBD Bioavailability and Efficacy
North Andover, MA—September 29, 2022—PHCO2, first in the industry to offer USDA-Certified Organic whole hemp plant extract with all-natural minor cannabinoids, announces another offering that is equally as unique in the industry: Aquazome, a water-soluble CBD ingredient. Aquazome can be used in many applications—from beverages (coffee, functional drinks), edibles, and lotions to water-soluble CBD tinctures, capsules and tablets, and other nutraceutical ingredients, along with equine and pet supplies.
Customers benefit from the many characteristics that the patented Aquazome provides:
- All-natural, food-grade ingredients, including a proprietary natural preservative system
- Higher standard potency—35% total cannabinoids (vs common industry amount of 10 to 20% CBD)
- If needed, a broad range of potencies ranging from 10% to 50% are available
- Pharmacokinetics (PK) study indicating 80% absorption vs. a fraction of that for competing technologies
- Revolutionary technology—competitively priced; higher bioavailability per serving; higher loading per gram of water-soluble ingredient (350 mg per gram), which means increased value in each drop of product due to increased CBD content—differs considerably from competitors’ material
- True water soluble that creates a homogenous mass, as opposed to water dispensable/dispersible
- Conventional as well as Certified Organic CBD emulsions available in broad- and full-spectrum
- Made with USDA-Certified Organic material; kosher-certified facility; GMP compliant
