OLEO in collaboration with Triskelion Research, a globally accredited pharmaceutical and food testing laboratory, utilizes the TIM-1 testing model to prove that each milligram of Micro-Encapsulated OleoCBDTM is 4-5x more potent than typical CBD when measured over the initial two hour period after consumption.
OLEO a dietary supplement company, leading the industry for highly potent water-soluble CBD products to better serve the active lifestyle community, releases their first-of-its-kind study for CBD dietary supplements this week.
Mimicking the human digestive tract via the TIM-1 test machine, OLEO can now shed scientific light on how various forms of CBD are absorbed into the body and help consumers better understand what CBD products should be considered for various wellness use cases.
This study specifically benefits athletic communities turning to CBD as part of their fitness routines. It proves athletes will more readily absorb their desired dose of CBD from a product such as OLEO's Original Mix, Coconut Mix, or Rooibos Tea Mix due to OLEO's higher bioaccessibility rate when compared to typical non-water-soluble CBD isolate products.
The body absorbs less than 7% of CBD in its typical state due to its naturally low bioaccessibility. OleoCBDTM's water-solubility and particle size of less than 10 microns allows the Micro-Encapsulated powder to result in the '4-5x more bioaccessible' study finding.
Potency is inferred based upon the bioaccessibility comparison between a control of 99.6% pure CBD isolate and a variable consisting of Micro-Encapsulated OleoCBDTM powder made from that same isolate. When measured over the full course of the digestive tract (~5 hours) OLEO is 2x more potent; i.e. OLEO products absorb better, faster and still have greater bioaccessibility over long-term observation.
OLEO's motivation for this study measuring digested CBD in various states comes from their desire to help people reach their fullest physical potential through hard work and dietary supplementation.
