how do we absorb cbd pt 2
✌️in this second part we are going to look at absorption through inhalation
💨when we vape or smoke cbd the drug is absorbed into the blood through our lungs.
🫁 as we inhale, air passes through the windpipe into the smaller airwaves called bronchioles - at the bottom of these airways we have lots of alveoli.
💭 these have a bubbly like air sack structure which increase the surface area
🩸they also have a good blood supply to them to allow for the contents of the air to exchange into the blood
☝️you will notice these aveoli are only one cell thick
🔃 with a sieve structure to allow the exchange of small molecules like oxygen , carbon dioxide or cbd to pass between the alveoli into the blood stream.
3️⃣ last method for cbd absorption is through the skin which we will cover in part three
