Microencapsulation is a cutting-edge technology that encloses active compounds and other ingredients in a protective coating. The microcapsules that are produced as a result of this process vary in length from 1 to 2000 micrometers (microns). This advanced technology ensures that PhenoGel’s active ingredients are delivered in the most effective way. There are two primary methods used for the microencapsulation process: spray drying and coacervation. Coacervation causes microcapsule cores to form a viscous microcapsule wall, which is solidified using cross-linking agents. Despite previous issues with coacervation microcapsules sticking together, our technology employs a proprietary method of preparing coacervation microcapsules which are capable of being frozen and dried optimally. This is the optimal technology to deliver the wonderful benefits of PhenoGel’s CBD hemp extract where it counts most.
The main benefit of microencapsulation when it comes to taking CBD is that it offers slow and targeted release of hemp’s active compounds. When medication or natural compounds are taken orally, they need to pass through the digestive tract before entering the bloodstream and taking effect. This exposure to the body’s digestive system, including stomach acid and various metabolic processes, results in the degradation of many ingredients before they reach the bloodstream. Microcapsules begin to open soon after entering the stomach. Pancreatic enzymes then offer a targeted release of the active compounds inside. This results in the delayed and targeted release of CBD in the capsules for potent and long-lasting effects.
Microcapsules are the ideal solution for people who want to take CBD orally but without the accompanying issues of softgels or pills. Microcapsules don’t degrade as soon as they enter the stomach as with regular pills. Microcapsules offer the added benefit of being completely odorless and tasteless, a factor that’s crucial for many users. Microcapsules are beneficial for many reasons:
- Increased stability
- Increased bioavailability
- Triggered Release
- Targeted Delivery
- Easy to swallow
