Why Sterile-Filter Water-Compatible Cannabis Extract Nanoemulsions?

[fa icon="calendar'] Dec 3, 2018 10:23:58 AM / by Alexey Peshkovsky, Ph.D. posted in Emulsion-based Products, Medical Cannabis

[fa icon="comment"] 10 Comments

Sterile filtration is an important post-processing step of ultrasonic nano-emulsification - a process that converts cannabis extracts and/or other hydrophobic bioactives into a water-compatible form. In this article, I will summarize the steps of the nano-emulsification process carried out with BHUT-based ultrasonic equipment and NanoStabilizer®, list the main advantages of the resulting water-compatible nanoemulsions, and explain why sterile filtration is always necessary at the end. Answers to several FAQs will also be provided.

Managing the Bitter Taste of Cannabis-Infused Beverages

[fa icon="calendar'] Sep 18, 2018 9:00:00 AM / by Alexey Peshkovsky, Ph.D. posted in Emulsion-based Products, Medical Cannabis

We are frequently asked how to minimize the bitter taste of products made with cannabis extract nanoemulsions (a.k.a., water-soluble CBD and THC). Infusing beverages with CBD and/or THC-containing translucent nanoemulsions (ideally, averaging ~20 nanometers in droplet size diameter) offers a very convenient, discrete and effective consumption method. The infusion does not change the original appearance of the beverages while instantly enabling them to provide a very rapid onset of action and high bioavailability of cannabinoids as well as of any other incorporated active ingredients. With this pharmacokinetic profile, the experience a lot more similar to consuming an alcoholic beverage than a typical cannabis-containing edible, which provides a myriad of attractive options for the vendors and consumers. In many cases, however, the infusion results in a bitter taste, which can range in intensity from virtually undetectable to quite unpleasant and makes it important to understand and manage.
