Megan Smith, third Chief Technology Officer for the United States, put it best when she said:
“Innovation comes out of great human ingenuity and very personal passions.”1
Our passion for delivering the best CBD products is what drives our search for the newest innovations. We’re always on the lookout for advancements and improvements in technology that delivers the best CBD experience. We couldn’t be happier with what we’ve found.
Loyal CBDistillery customers quickly learn to expect the best from us and we wouldn’t want it any other way. We appreciate all of you and we’re determined to search out the newest, and best CBD products available. That’s and we’re certain you’re going to love this announcement.
First, let’s get down to basics. What is vaping, and why do so many prefer it? Vaping refers to the process by which an oil, in our case CBD oil, is heated, or vaporized, and then inhaled through a vape pen or vaporizer. Our customers enjoy CBD in vape form for various reasons. Many feel vaping provides the purest form of CBD, allowing for the best resulting effects.
We know that many of our customers prefer vape pens over other CBD products, but why? It’s important to understand that not all CBD products will affect your body in the same way. Edible and oral CBD products, for example, go through a phenomenon known as the “first-pass effect”.2
When a compound, such as CBD, enters your stomach it passes through the liver. During the process, the liver actually reduces the potency and amount of CBD via absorption or break down from liver enzymes. CBD is hydrophobic, so it doesn’t appreciate water. As a result, it doesn’t stay in the bloodstream long before fatty tissues absorb it. Why is this bad? It means that this form of administration is less “bioactive” meaning that less CBD is available to enter your circulation system.
Now, if you love CBD edibles, don’t feel entirely disheartened. You can achieve your desired effects through products like CBD oil and gummies. You may just need to eat several gummies, to ensure enough CBD is absorbed into your system, and it may take a little longer to feel the CBD working in your body.
So what does this all mean in terms of vapor products? In order to forgo the first-pass effect, CBD needs to be chemically transformed into a more water-friendly form. Through vaporization, CBD enters your body directly through the lungs, meaning it doesn’t have to pass through the liver or gut. The result is significantly more CBD remains available to enter those active sites in your body.
So what’s new at CBDistillery?
As a company, we are dedicated to continuously improving and evolving our products and technology. After several months of research, we’re saying goodbye to our disposable vape pens and cartridges, and have invested in a patented, luxury vape technology and a higher quality formulation vape cutting agent. These upgrades, at no additional cost to our customers, include:
At this point, you might be afraid that the CBDistillery you know and love is undergoing a complete restructure and will never look the same again. No worries there, we’re happy to report that if it wasn’t broken, we didn’t fix it. We only changed what we felt fell short of the high expectations our customers have, and we have of ourselves.
So what didn’t end up on the cutting block?
We’ve always offered the highest-quality, Colorado grown, naturally sourced, non-GMO, hemp-delivered CBD that is third-party tested for quality and provides delicious, natural flavoring and botanical terpenes and that won’t change.
We were founded by a group of like-minded individuals, believing our customers would truly benefit from and have the right to, the highest-quality CBD products available. Through education and research, we strive to live up to that belief every day.
We want to provide our customers with the most stellar CBD vapor experience.
We hope you’re as excited as we are about the new lineup of products. Check back soon for more on this, or for similar topics.
