Advantages of Products Manufactured with Nanoemulsions
Hemp and cannabis nanoemulsion-based products provide substantial benefits compared to traditionally manufactured edibles and beverages.
The proprietary nanoemulsification and micronization technologies greatly increase the bioavailability of cannabinoids. This creates a substantially more stable product that is highly resistant to separation. Products created with nanoemulsions take effect more quickly than traditional infused edibles and deliver more consistent and enjoyable experiences for consumers.
Nanoemulsions are stable dispersions of two immiscible liquids, such as cannabis oil and water. The tiny droplets of oil are typically between 20 and 600 nanometers in diameter and are stabilized by a thin film of surfactants.
First, a coarse emulsion with large droplet sizes is created through the use of a high shear mixer. Then the coarse emulsion is passed through a GEA High Pressure Homogenizer several times. This process can easily be integrated into a large scale manufacturing line.
The GEA pressurizes the fluid and then releases it through a special homogenizing valve. The extreme shearing forces the emulsion experiences during this process causes the droplets to become extraordinarily small, improving its stability and bioavailability.
GEA has been at the leading edge of homogenization technologies since 1947, servicing the food and dairy, pharmaceutical, chemical, and biotechnology industries. GEA produces the worlds largest high pressure homogenizers, with flow rates of up to 5,000 liters per hour at 1,500 bar.
