Why do I have to take CBD with food?

This is due to  “Bioavailability”, which is the rate and degree at which a substance (mentioned here for CBD) is absorbed into our living system or is available at the site of physiological activity. Taking CBD infused products orally in empty stomach, where the active ingredients are absorbed through digestion, instead of our mouth’s mucous membranes, can diminish its bioavailability of active ingredients due to the effects of first pass metabolism which alters the structure of CBD into one of its metabolites. Therefore, for optimum absorption, Full Spectrum oral products should be taken with food, especially with meals high in fatty acids.
