Glossary of Terms


Often used in the production of edibles and infused beverages, nanoemulsion refers to cannabinoids that are broken down into microscopic molecules that are suspended in a lipid, or fat, allowing them to travel to their desired destination in the body more quickly and in greater quantities. Instead of being gradually metabolized in the liver and stomach, these tiny cannabinoids move directly into the bloodstream, producing a faster onset of effects.  

Products formulated with nanoemulsion may feature terms like “quick onset” or “fast-acting.” Research into the nanoemulsification of cannabinoids and the potential effects is ongoing.
