Two large scale giants in their respective industries will work together this year to create something new. ABbev, the beer giant, will work to produce nonalcoholic beverages containing cannabidiol. The CBD-infused drinks will go on sale in Canada once regulations allow, and potentially as early as December.
Anheuser-Busch InBev and Tilray first announced a research partnership in December 2018. The companies’ plan to commercialize CBD-infused drinks represents a significant progression for the joint venture, which is now named Fluent Beverage Company.
The bold claims made by the two companies distill down to this: They say that a team with best-in-class expertise from the beverage and cannabis industries has been assembled.
In the United States, CBD is derived from legalized hemp plants, which are low in THC and high in CBD. Producers don’t have to worry about chemical binding agents adding unwanted flavors, and topical application sends the CBD straight to your skin tissue.
Oral ingestion works differently. Simple tinctures (substances dissolved in alcohol) are currently the most common method, but they can’t simply be swallowed. The oils must be absorbed sublingually by the mucous membranes under your tongue. Dripping a dank, earthy oil under one’s tongue — then keeping it there for up to a couple of minutes — is not exactly ideal, but otherwise your body wouldn’t absorb it properly.
“If you’re consuming CBD (that has been dripped) in a product like water or food, most of it is going to get metabolized in your gut, so your intestines and your liver enzymes, they will break down most of the CBD, so most of it, you’re not going to absorb,” Hurd said.
Infused beverages are viewed as an improvement on the tincture method, and making them water-soluble has become cannabinoid companies’ key to creating an effective upgrade.
Without solubility, CBD’s bioavailability, the degree to which it is absorbed into the body, becomes limited — as low as 4%.
Though CBD oil is great for using topically or vaping, when immersed in a cup of tea, science illustrates that non-water-based CBD isn’t going to be utilized the way you intended. In other words: Water and oil don’t mix.
Still, you can attempt to make CBD tea and get a good result.
Steps to Make CBD Tea:
Always keep in mind, putting it under your tongue is a much more effective way of dosing.
Do not mouth the dropper. It will slow the CBD in the bottle. Drop the required amount under your tongue. Hold it for a minute or as long as you like. Then swish it around in your mouth before swallowing. Again, you want it to be absorbed by the soft tissues in your mouth before taking.
Bio-availability is a big word because it means how much of the product makes it to your body in a practical way. Some gel caps claim to have 100% bio-availability. Vaping is popular as well.
