Pharmacokinetics of Lipid Nanoparticle Cannabis Formulas
One of the biggest hurdles right now for medical cannabis is the challenge of consistent and efficient dosing. Inhalation methods are plagued by poor dosage control and usage stigma; oral ingestion routes are plagued by poor and inconsistent absorption. Lipid nanoparticle-based deliveries, such as liposomes and nanoemulsions, offer a great solution to this problem. In this talk we will review lipid-based delivery methods and examine pharmacokinetic data from a new phospholipid-based nanoemulsion system, applied both intraorally and in capsular format.
1. Review strengths and weaknesses of existing routes of ingestion for cannabinoids, and examine lipid nanoparticle based delivery systems.
2. Review available pharmacokinetic data of advanced absorption technologies for cannabinoids, including a new Colorado-developed nanoemulsion technology.
