The Cannabis Conversation

Why most CBD oil has low bioavailability and how to change that with Dr. Sung Min Pyo

The bioavailability, absorption, and solubility of CBD, and some potential solutions to improve its uptake in the body.




On the latest episode of The Cannabis Conversation, we’re joined by Dr Sung Min Pyo – Head of Laboratory – Enabling Pharma Excipients for BASF.

A 2018 report from the World Health Organisation (WHO) estimated the bioavailability from oral consumption of CBD to be only 6% (WHO Technical Report Series 1013)

We explore the reasons behind this estimate and discuss the bioavailability, absorption, and solubility of CBD, alongside some potential solutions to improve its uptake in the body.
