How Does Nano Work?

One of the most common complaints with cannabis edibles is how long it takes to feel its effects. This delay causes some users to continue eating more edibles and the increased dosage can leave the user feeling out of sorts when the full effects kick in. Compared to smoking cannabis flower or dabs, edibles take much longer to metabolize. With nano THC, the effects of cannabis can be felt much sooner than classic cannabis edibles.

What is Nano THC?

Nano THC is the key component of cutting-edge cannabis products that were developed to get edibles metabolized more quickly. This fast-acting THC lets the user experience the full effects within minutes, as opposed to hours.

Typically, the onset for nano THC is 10 to 15 minutes, while conventional edibles can be felt in full between 60 and 90 minutes. The rate of influence is also affected by several factors, including the user’s weight, metabolism, tolerance and dosage.

This is an emerging science in the recreational and medical cannabis industry, and we can expect more exciting developments in the coming years.

How Do Nanocannabinoids Work?

As the name suggests, nanocannabinoids are smaller than regular cannabinoids. Cannabis cultivators and innovators tend to have their own proprietary processes for developing cannabinoids. On a high level, regular cannabinoids are made smaller so they become water-soluble, meaning nano cannabinoids metabolize quicker than regular cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are hydrophobic and bond with lipids, but shrinking them to nano cannabinoids lets water-soluble particles pass more efficiently through the digestive tract. Nanotechnology is an emerging field in medicine, which shares common ground with the medical and recreational cannabis industry.

11-Hydroxy-THC and Cannabis Metabolism

THC, also known as tetrahydrocannabinol, is the active ingredient in cannabis. When it is consumed in the form of edibles, it eventually transforms into 11-hydroxy-THC. This chemical compound has sedative and pain-relieving properties, as opposed to THC’s stimulating, psychoactive effects. Nanocannabinoids send THC straight to the body, without the lengthy conversion to 11-hydroxy-THC.

The Benefits of Nano THC

The most notable benefit of nano THC is its enhanced bioavailability, which means it is absorbed more readily by the human body. According to NCBI, nano THC provides roughly 85% absorbable THC, while more traditional products contain anywhere in the range of 6-20% absorbable THC, which depends on the cultivar and its quality.

In general, nano THC is much more predictable than traditional cannabis products.
