Bioavailability

There is a reason why every pharmaceutical company in the world is obsessed with absorption of drugs or bioavailability. The majority of cannabis producers / processors put a ton of hard work into growing cannabis, extracting oil and creating a consumer packaged good (CPG), but they naively chose not to research what happens when humans consume cannabis in an edible form. Figure 1 shows the bioavailability of cannabis delivery systems. Oil soluble formulations are not efficacious and very wasteful.

Power to
the People

Figure 1: Highlights bioavailability (%) of oil soluble formulations (tincture, gummy, chocolate) vs inhalation (vape) vs water soluble formulations (Le Herbe) vs intravenous administration (IV). Disclaimer: IV is shown for educational purposes only, please don't use this system or think we advocate for it.


Onset Effect

A major obstacle holding back the cannabis industry from mainstream acceptance was a slow onset effect from consuming edibles. Figure 2 shows that oil soluble formulations take 1-2 hours before you can feel the effect after oral consumption and last up to 4-6 hours. Le Herbe solved this problem with a cannabis delivery system called a nanoemulsion in 2015. Consumers now have 5-10 minute onset effects thanks to the Art and Science of Cannabis Beverages. Le Herbe's water soluble THC dissipates within an hour just like alcohol.

Fast Acting
vs
Long Lasting

Figure 2: Comparison of cannabis metabolites in the blood as a function of time. Water soluble formulations (fast-acting) vs oil soluble formulations (long-lasting). Le Herbe's water soluble formulations come on quick and dissipate within an hour just like alcohol. We can combine fast-acting with long-lasting for a wide variety of custom THC effects.

Le Herbe has spent 8 years mastering cannabis pharmacokinetics (how humans affect cannabinoids) and continues to research cannabis pharmacodynamics (how cannabinoids affect humans) in order to move our industry forward. We need to care more about our customers / formulations and less about investors / fancy packaging.

FAQs

  • What are cannabis derived cannabinoids?

    Le Herbe has a rare collection of high purity cannabinoids extracted from sun grown cannabis. The most well know is delta 9 THC (D9), but this beautiful plant has more than 150 cannabinoids. Each cannabinoid has a specific effect in isolation and/or in combination with other cannabinoids, terpenoids, or flavonoids.

  • What is the difference between cannabis and hemp?

    The law in the USA clearly defines cannabis as more than > 0.3 % delta 9 THC and hemp is defined as less than < 0.3 % delta 9 THC on a dry weight basis. Both terms relate to the same plant species Cannabis sativa L., but the main difference is the concentration of chemical constituents.

  • How do you make cannabis water soluble?

    Le Herbe makes a cannabis emulsion that is dispersible in water. The resulting liquid emulsion is then spray dried to form a water soluble powder. You can read more about how we make cannabis water soluble by reading our legendary white papers.

  • How should I consume THC powder?

    Based on our bioavailability research (AUC), Le Herbe recommends consuming water soluble THC powder in your favorite drink before eating a high fat meal. Intermittent fasting is a viable alternative to promote autophagy.

  • What is the onset effect of water soluble THC?

    Le Herbe's cannabis derived cannabinoids have an onset effect of approximately 5-10 minutes (Fast Acting). Results may vary if your feasting or fasting, metabolism, genetics, etc.

  • What is the offset effect of water soluble THC?

    Le Herbe's cannabis derived cannabinoids have an offset effect of approximately 1-2 hours (oral consumption). The peak effect is around 30 minutes and it slowly dissipates.

  • What is the onset / offset effect of current cannabis edibles?

    The majority of current edible products use oil soluble formulations (Cannabis 1.0 / Legacy). They have an unpredictable onset effect (1-2 hours) and variable offset effect (2-6 hours). In addition, you do not absorb the amount of cannabis stated on your product label.

  • What is bioavailability?

    Bioavailability is defined as the percentage of a drug dose that is able to enter circulation intact after it has been administered. The four main modes of drug delivery are intravenous, inhalation, transdermal, and oral.

  • What is the bioavailability of oil soluble edibles?

    If you purchase a 10mg cannabis edible that is formulated oil soluble then you're only consuming approximately 1.5mg of the active ingredient (D9). The other 8.5mg is excreted from your body before you can absorb it. You just paid for 10mg, but you only absorbed 1.5mg of D9.

  • How do you obtain a bioavailability rating?

    Cannabis producers / processors will have to develop an in vitro gastrointestinal model in order to obtain an accurate rating (78.4%). We also recommend that you grade your cannabis nanoemulsion.

  • How do you grow your cannabis?

    Le Herbe blends high quality plant genetics, biodynamic farming, sun grown cannabis, designer extracts, and all-natural ingredients in our THC powder.

  • What kind of cannabis extract do you use?

    Le Herbe uses cannabis derived hash rosin, live rosin, isolate, live resin, badder, distillate, and/or shatter. It's a proprietary cannabis extract and may include a variety of cannabinoids, terpenoids, and flavonoids.

  • How much should I consume?

    Le Herbe recommends 2-10mg of THC per drink and not more than two drinks per hour. Go low and slow to build up your tolerance and have fun finding the right dose amount for personalized enjoyment. Please remember that water soluble THC is stronger than current edible products, so you may need to adjust your dosage.

  • What is the strength of water soluble THC?

    Absorption or bioavailability will be the new "alcohol proof" for the cannabis industry, which suggests the true strength of cannabis by quantitative data (78.4% ÷ 10mg = 7.8mg). This will also be a tell-tale sign to consumers that your products are professionally formulated from scientific methods, not based on pseudoscience.

  • What can I mix with water soluble THC?

    Le Herbe's water soluble THC is handcrafted to dissolve in non-alcoholic liquid, but you can use our powder in modern cuisine. Utilize our THC powders in fine dining restaurants and transform them into foams, gelatins, spherification, or thickeners. All the technical hurdles or food science has been addressed by Le Herbe, so you can concentrate on creating depth of flavor, crafting cannabis mocktails, or building a consumer packaged good (CPG). Some of our clients in the USA, Canada and Europe have crafted soups, sauces, cosmetics, cup cakes, k-cups, tea bags, lozenges, gum, mints, and tablets with our water soluble cannabinoids.

  • How do you formulate colors?

    Le Herbe's team of acclaimed food scientists utilize fruit and vegetable colors in our THC powders. They include anthocyanin, lycopene, algae, and carotenoid. The current organic portfolio contains blues, reds, yellows, oranges, and purples. They are flavorless and odorless.

  • How long does it take for it to dissolve in water?

    Complete dispersion or dissolution of the Le Herbe's water soluble powder will be accomplished within a few seconds in warm liquid and in about 30-60 seconds in cold liquid.

  • What is micro and nano?

    Le Herbe uses particle engineering in order to miniaturize cannabinoids and thus make it more effective. Micrometer (µm) is usually a powder measurement because the particles are larger. Nanometer (nm) is usually a liquid measurement because the particles are smaller. Both size measurements can refer to percentiles (D10, D50, D90), average weighted by surface area (D[3,2]), average weighted by volume (D[4,3]), thickness of a particle shell, microparticle (powder), and/or nanoemulsion (liquid). Did you know that there are over 1,000,000 particles in a pinch of our THC powder.

  • How do you measure particles?

    Le Herbe measures cannabis microparticles (powder) with laser diffraction and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). We measure a nanoemulsion (liquid) with multi-angle dynamic light scattering (MADLS). The instrument uses MIE theory and includes back (173°), side (90°) and front (13°) scattering data for an accurate measurement.

  • Why is particle size important?
    1. Critical to bioavailability
    2. Critical to stability
    3. Critical to solubility
    4. Critical to dissolution
    5. Critical to uniformity
    6. Critical to appearance
  • What are a few critical material attributes?

    Le Herbe recommends the following critical material attributes (CMA) for cannabis powder manufacturers.

    • Particle Size
    • Particle Shape
    • Particle Size Distribution
