How Choose mounted the unpredictability of meals with nanoemulsion

We all know the reputation of the classic cannabis brownie, whether we’ve experienced it or not: an hour or two of nothing followed by an experience that melts you on the couch. Some people like this cannabis cliff jump – and if you are, so do you. For the rest of us there is a better edible.
Nano foods such as Nano Gummies from Select are a discreet, gentle alternative to traditional foods. They’re just as practical, discreet, and portable, but they’re quick to deploy and have more of an impact on smoking or vaping than a typical homemade cannabis biscuit.
Best of all, they’re available in legal cannabis states in the United States. So Select has solved the infamous edible problems in a tasty, practical gummy bear.
The science behind traditional foods
“When the edibles fill in” is a meme for a reason – remember the cop who called 911 after eating an edible? It’s harrowing to feel the effects of THC deeply in just minutes after two hours of complete sobriety, but there is a scientific explanation for why this happens.
Cannabinoids are extremely fat soluble, so traditional foods such as those made in the average kitchen rely on fat to bring cannabis into your body. It’s a reliable way to make an edible one, but it hits your system differently biologically. When released in fat, THC doesn’t hit your system until after digestion and may delay its effects by hours. The dramatic beginning is due to how it is absorbed through the liver after this long waiting period. This process alters cannabinoids at the molecular level, which is why foods give this unique type of high.
Building a better edible – with water
Nano foods work differently. Thanks to a process called nanoemulsion, foods like nano gummies can use water-soluble cannabinoids that are not fat-soluble. But cannabinoids don’t cling to water on their own.
You probably know emulsion as a basic concept: it’s the process that holds your dressings together. In order for this to actually work with cannabis, the mixture must be stable over the long term, so the process must take place on a microscopic level. Enter the nanoemulsion, a natural process done on a tiny scale that allows ingested cannabis to bypass the metabolic restrictions of fat-based foods.
A much better buzz
For you this means the following: Water-based nanoemulsions are absorbed much faster. Because this journey is shorter – and doesn’t have to go all the way down your stomach – you’ll get a simpler dose of cannabinoids that is closer to a dose you’d get from smoking or vaping. No waiting for the other cannabis shoe. Not a sudden crash killing the mood.
It also takes a lot of the guesswork out of food. The dose is much more reliable and since it starts quickly, you don’t wait hours for adjustments. Selected nano-rubbers usually start between 15 and 20 minutes. This mellow and predictable, user-friendly high is perfect for a nervous first-time cannabis user or longtime fan looking for something that won’t ruin a party.
More of the good stuff
While the high isn’t that strong, recent research shows that this type of food could be much more effective. A randomized, controlled study from Colorado State University in March 2020 found that water-soluble CBD was more than four times the bioavailability of fat-soluble CBD. That means more of it will be absorbed into your system instead of getting lost in the process.
Available in select states
Nano Gummies are available in California, Arizona, Massachusetts, and Nevada and will soon be available in Colorado and other markets. Follow Select on Instagram for the latest news on the Select Nano Gummy launches.
