Some manufacturing processes may be able to keep the components stable while exposed to light in the short term, but it will not remain stable if the water is sitting on a shelf for months or even weeks. That means CBD in a clear water bottle stored on a brightly-lit supermarket shelf is most likely completely useless and provides no other benefit than the
“Cannabinoids are susceptible to degradation and specifically oxidization which is very concerning, as some of those degradants are toxic. Cannabinoids are most stable in their trichomes on the flower or even in the resin where the terpenes and other natural chemicals provide some protection and anti-oxidation properties. This is why purified or isolated CBD-THC are very unstable unless properly formulated,” said Aras Azadian, CEO of Avicanna, exclusively in an email.

Absorption of CBD When Applied Topically
When you smear CBD oils or creams onto your skin, it will never reach the bloodstream. In using CBD this way, you get targeted relief to a specific area. The skin absorbs CBD so that it can interact with cannabinoid receptors nearby. Generally, human skin is not very permeable. It blocks the majority of substances to prevent them from entering the body.
Your skin will not absorb cannabinoids very well. Absorption rates are very low. This is why, for topical CBD products to work, you have to apply them very generously, as in thick enough to break this barrier. If you are liberal enough in your application, your skin pores will absorb CBD to affect targeted healing. Additionally, this method works best when lotions, salves and balms contain very high levels of CBD.
Medical Definition of transdermal
Unlike other patches on the market that last only up to 12 hours, our patches keep delivering CBD for up to 96 hours….4 days!
The only topical CBD products able to penetrate the skin and enter the bloodstream are transdermal CBD patches. Transdermal, by its very definition, means able to cross the dermal barrier to reach the blood. The U.S. Library of Medicine discusses a study, (Hammell et al, 2016), proving the ability to CBD to be efficiently absorbed via transcutaneous methods.
