What is an ODT?
An orally dissolving tablet is a drug delivery form that is designed to disintegrate on the tongue, rather than swallowed whole. The tablet is composed of a highly specialized excipient which wicks moisture into the center of the tablet causing a rapid swelling force which breaks apart the tablet, releasing the compressed botanical compounds within. Our proprietary blend goes a step further to breakdown the crystalline structure of cbd, aiding in it’s absorption via the capillaries in the buccal mucosa tissues in the mouth. These capillaries can be clearly seen under the tongue in a mirror, in the cheeks, or behind the bottom lip.
When absorbed in the mouth, CBD bypasses the typical digestive path of edibles, which includes filtering by the liver. This path can quickly reduce the bioavailability, or amount of cbd that makes it into the bloodstream. Therefore, with ODT the content of each dose is protected from degradation in the digestive tract, where up to 80% of the total cannabinoids can be lost via first-pass metabolism. Likewise, this form is especially convenient for the significant amount of people who find swallowing pills to be difficult, and without needing water for dissolution they can be taken effectively anywhere. Adaptoids ODT formulation allows CBD to quickly enter the bloodstream and interact with the endocannabinoid system, and reduces the onset time of CBD’s holistic healing effects.
