Nano Cannabinoids

ELBAcan: Innovative Nano-encapsulation of Cannabis Inflorescence for Effective Nasal Spray Delivery to the Brain

By crossing the blood-brain barrier and avoiding the liver (where active ingredients are broken down), this technology achieves higher bioavailability and a quicker absorption rate than common forms of administration.
