CBD and other Cannabinoids

What Medical Professionals Need to Know

CBD is a cannabinoid with many potential benefits for various medical conditions, such as chronic pain, depression, anxiety, epilepsy, and more. However, the body does not absorb it well when taken orally or sublingually (under the tongue).
This is where Bocaliner comes in! It’s a soft, lightweight oral device that can help increase the absorption and effectiveness of CBD.

What is CBD, and How Does It Work?

CBD is short for cannabidiol, a natural substance from the cannabis plant. Importantly, it’s different from THC, the part of cannabis that makes you feel “high”.
When patients take CBD, it interacts with their body’s endocannabinoid system, which helps control pain, mood, inflammation, sleep, appetite, and more. It can then change how the endocannabinoid system works by binding with some receptors or impacting molecule levels.
CBD can also affect other areas related to different functions, such as serotonin, dopamine, opioid, and TRPV1. This way, CBD can help with various health problems.

CBD has been used as a treatment for
many conditions, including:

Chronic Pain


Crohn’s Disease

Rheumatoid Arthritis



Nausea / Vomiting


Multiple Sclerosis

Essential Tremors

The Problem with CBD

Unfortunately, the body doesn’t absorb CBD easily. For example, if a patient swallows 100 mg of CBD in a gummy or a capsule, only 5 mg of CBD will actually reach their bloodstream. Not very effective.
That’s why CBD is usually mixed with oil, like coconut, grape seed, or hemp oil, and taken sublingually. This way, patients can absorb more CBD. It can improve the absorption rate from about 5% to between 13 and 19%.
But they must hold the CBD oil under their tongue as long as they can, at least for 60 seconds. The longer they hold it, the more CBD they absorb, and the better it works.

The Solution: Bocaliner

Bocaliner, an innovative oral device, has proven effective in enhancing the sublingual absorption of substances.
As you can see from the graph, Bocaliner increases the duration and concentration of sublingual CBD in the mouth compared to no device. This could lead to better effects from sublingual CBD for various medical conditions.
