Medical Cannabis is not cheap, don’t get fooled by the stated milligrams of THC or CBD. Know your effective price per milligram.
Most of the biologically active compounds in medical cannabis are not water-soluble. Their absorption can vary widely, based upon the delivery method.
So despite the labeling indicating the quantity in milligrams of an active compound, how much of the compound becomes active when you consume is more relevant.
Product Price / Content in MG = Price Per Milligram of Content
Price per gram calculations is built on one assumption: that all products offer similar bioavailability levels. This truth simply isn’t true anymore. You have to take into account the bioavailability, or the ability of the substance to have a biological effect.
Oil-based capsules the average bioavailability is less than 10%. That means 90% or more of the product you consume is simply flushed from your body.
Nanoemulsified products undergo a process that breaks the oil particles into extremely tiny pieces – an average of 25 nanometers. While not water-soluble in a true sense, these particles are fine enough that they can disperse throughout liquids instead of sitting on top like oil. This greatly increases the surface area of these oils and allows the body to more rapidly absorb the cannabinoids and terpenes.
Oil-based products 1x absorption rate.
Liposomal products 2x absorption rate.
Nanoemulsified products 5x absorption rate. ( Product Price / Content in MG ) / Bioavailability Factor = Effective Price Per Milligram of Content.
