Unlokt uses a fully water-soluble powder to encapsulate cannabis within a natural protein that shuttles the actives directly into the body’s circulation by bypassing first-pass metabolism in the liver.
Open Book Extracts (Roxboro, NC) has announced the launch of new edible cannabinoid products that employ a novel plant-based infusion technology called Unlokt from Day Three Labs. Unlokt uses a fully water-soluble powder that can be easily incorporated into a wide range of dosage formats to encapsulate cannabis within a natural protein that shuttles the actives directly into the body’s circulation by bypassing first-pass metabolism in the liver. This protects the cannabinoids and terpenes, allowing them to be released and better absorbed in the bloodstream. The Unlokt technology can support product in the recreational and medical marijuana spaces, as well as functional food and beverages formulated with hemp-derived cannabinoids.
"Open Book Extracts has a proven track record of partnering with innovative companies and their technologies, to offer the highest quality products to our expanding global client base,” said Nicole Brown, Open Book Extracts’ chief innovation officer, in a press release. “Products featuring the Unlokt technology deliver Open Book Extracts’ hallmark ingredients, flavors, and textures with the added benefit of providing faster onset with a consistent experience, and clean, all-natural ingredients.”
“Open Book Extracts’ highly trusted formulas and science-backed innovation have made them leaders in the cannabinoid industry, and we are excited to count them as a valued partner,” added Josh Rubin, co-founder of Day Three Labs. “Unlokt works to increase the bioavailability of rare cannabinoids that are present and already being utilized by the OBX team of scientists and we are optimistic about the outcomes this new product line will yield for people who may be struggling with inflammation, pain, stress, and anxiety.”
