Home » About Micronization


Because our bodies are mostly made up of water, micronization has been
used by the pharmaceutical industry for decades to decrease the size of an
oil-soluble material’s particles resulting in increased bioavailability.
The size of cells in a human body range anywhere from about 4 microns all
the way up to 100 microns. For example, a red blood cell has a standard size
of about 5 to 8 microns. Skin cells average around 25 to 40 microns, while a
nerve cell can be 100 microns. Fruit of the Earth Natural Health’s micronized
products are about 1 micron and easily absorb in the body. *We never utilize
surfactants in our formulations as they are often created chemically and are
potentially harmful on the micronized level.

With CBD, micronization takes clumps of CBD molecules and makes them
much smaller while evenly dispersing them in the carrier oil. Micronized CBD
taken orally or topically is small enough to easily pass through the cell walls
and becomes far more effective. With our formulations, you will be confident
in knowing that all ingredients are organic, surfactant-free and sized small
enough for the highest bioavailability to assist you in your pursuit of

Our proprietary micronization process reduces the particle size of
ingredients to roughly a micron, enabling far better absorption. The
bioavailability of regular CBD oils is roughly 13-19%, so if you take 20mg of
CBD, only 3mg may actually make it into your blood to have an effect.
Micronization makes our CBD oil a full 7–10 times more bioavailable, so you
can get a greater effect with a lesser dose – more effective for your body,
more cost effective for your budget. When the body is able to absorb more,
the therapeutic effect is quicker, more potent, and less is needed.
As you can see in our actual slides, micronization takes clumps of CBD
molecules and mills them into much smaller particles so that all our
ingredients are roughly 1 micron in size and can thus be easily absorbed
through cell walls.
