HydroPCR™ is a 4% PCR Hemp Oil Nanoemulsion from Folium Biosciences. Built with Nano-Enhanced Absorption Technology (NEAT), this fully water-soluble formula was designed to create ready-to- drink, shelf stable beverages and bottled water. It is made with full-spectrum THC-free hemp oil rich in phytocannabinoids and contains substantially reduced amounts of natural surfactants compared to previous technologies. The manufacturing process uses a patented technology that breaks down cannabinoids into nanoemulsions 20-100 nm in size. This state-of-the-art solution was designed with the following in mind:
(1) Shelf stability: The plant lipids in HydroPCR™’s 4% PCR Hemp Oil Nanoemulsion play a crucial role in ensuring that the beverage to which it is added, remain shelf stable. This makes it a superior product (compared to isolate) as the plant lipids in the hemp oil slow down Ostwald ripening, leading to 12-24 months of shelf life of the ﬁnal product.
(2) Bioavailability: Employing NEAT the nano-sized cannabinoid emulsion droplets lead to a much higher surface area, enhancing absorption through sublingual, topical or intestinal routes. Also, the full-spectrum hemp oil ensures that the carrier lipids do not break down in the small intestine, resulting in higher bioavailability of the cannabinoids.
(3) Safety: The natural emulsiﬁers (Quillaja saponaria saponins) used in HypdroPCR™ are derived from the soap bark tree, and are organic, preservative free and Generally Recognized as Safe, GRAS. The very low ratio of cannabinoids to surfactants (approximately 1:1) ensures that only a few milligrams of emulsiﬁers are consumed with the cannabinoids, resulting in an exceptionally safe and efﬁcacious product.
