What is CBD OIl?
Let’s first take a look at CBD Oil and MCT Oil independently before diving into the health benefits and bioavailability of CBD MCT Oil collectively.
CBD, also scientifically referred to as Cannabidiol, is one of 100+ known cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Research suggests that these phytocannabinoids synergistically interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system to help restore and maintain balance and homeostasis.
CBD Oil Tinctures can include more than just CBD and may contain other therapeutic cannabinoids like CBC, CBDa, CBDV, CBG and THC; along with the naturally occurring terpenes and flavonoids from the original cannabis plant.
What is MCT Oil?
In the more recent years, we have seen a rise in MCT Oil due to the popularity of the Ketogenic diet. But there is still confusion amongst consumers as to what is MCT? Medium-Chain Triglycerides, or for short MCT, is a fatty acid comprised of a 6-to-12 carbon chain. MCTs are often found in Coconut Oil, and MCTs are regarded as a source of clean fuel for both the body and brain. MCTs are digested easily and rapidly to give your body the energy it needs.
Fractionated Coconut Oil (MCT Oil)
Coconut Oil is a superior carrier oil for CBD Tinctures for many reasons.
Coconut Oil has virtually no flavor, making it a preferred carrier oil for CBD. Whereas carrier oils like Hemp Seed Oil, Avocado Oil and Pomegranate Seed Oil have an aroma and taste.
Coconut Oil is a thinner oil which proves to be more effective for dispensing in the droppers of CBD Oil Tinctures. Other carrier oils like Olive Oil and Avocado Oil are more vicious.
Coconut Oil has therapeutic benefits like antifungal, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that further complement the beneficial properties of CBD.
Coconut Oil has a high concentration of saturated fats, more notably MCT. Since these MCTs are easily absorbed into the liver, it makes for a great delivery system for a strong CBD bioavailability.
At Veré, we source organic, fractionated Coconut Oil for our carrier oil in our CBD Tinctures and Gummies—from our Full Spectrum Hemp Oil and CBD Infused Gummies to our Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil and Pure CBD Oil. The fractionated Coconut Oil undergoes a process to remove the longer fat molecules to isolate the MCT, making it one of the most effective carrier oils for CBD.
Health Benefits of MCT Oil
In addition to MCT Oil demonstrating benefits for metabolic health, cognitive clarity, digestive health, and hormone balance, there are other health benefits that make it one of the best CBD carrier oils. These include:
- Weight Loss: MCT Oil has gained greater fame in the more recent years as the popularity with the Ketogenic diet continues to gain traction. MCT Oil acts as a superior source of fat that is converted into fuel and ketones.
- Energy: MCT Oil gets absorbed straight into the liver, without first being broken down in the digestive system, allowing the MCTs to enter the cells quickly to be used as energy.
- Athletic Performance & Exercise: Research suggests that MCT Oil may reduce lactate buildup, which is crucial to an athlete’s performance, their training regime and exercise. This benefit combined with CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties can effectively impact post-workout recovery.
- Reduces Yeast & Bacteria: MCT Oil’s antimicrobial and antifungal properties positively impact yeast and bacteria in the body.
Why Are Carrier Oils Crucial for CBD?
Now that we understand what MCT Oil is and its health benefits, let’s take a closer look at why carrier oils in CBD Oil Tinctures are necessary for the bioavailability and consumption of CBD. Pure CBD is an isolate and a white powder. Accurately measuring CBD Isolate is challenging and it is improbable that your body would be able to process the entirety, let alone majority, of the CBD you intake in this CBD Isolate form. Therefore, most of the CBD is unused in your body, reducing the bioavailability.
That’s where carrier oils, such as MCT Oil, come into play. When CBD is combined with MCT Oil, the fat-soluble cannabinoids like CBD bind with the fat molecules of MCT. Your body already knows how to break down these fat molecules so it makes absorption of the CBD effective and fast-acting. This combination of MCT Oil and CBD Oil dramatically improves the efficiency of the CBD compounds that are ingested.
CBD MCT Oil Benefits
MCT helps to improve the efficacy of the CBD through its bioavailability, or the percentage of CBD that the body can process once ingested. The bioavailability of CBD varies in each delivery system. CBD Oil Tinctures, and more notably CBD MCT Oil Tinctures, have the greatest bioavailability as CBD enters the bloodstream by sublingually ingesting the CBD Oil. With CBD capsules or CBD edibles, CBD must first get broken down in the digestive system before being absorbed into the bloodstream.
CBD bioavailability in carrier oils is dependent on the types of fat molecules found in the carrier oil. The different types of fat fluctuate on a molecular level and impact its efficacy to deliver the CBD into your body.
Since MCT Oil in CBD MCT Oil Tinctures does not require stomach acid to break down the CBD by the body, CBD is not lost in the digestive system. Therefore, your body is able to get more out of each CBD Oil dosage for maximum impact and benefit.
MCT Oil + CBD = Marriage Made in Heaven
MCT is the best CBD carrier oil due to its ability to quickly be digested and metabolized in the body. As such, this plant source oil is a great combination with CBD. Consumers can expect greater health benefits from combining the holistic properties of MCT with the therapeutic properties of CBD and other cannabinoids.
With Veré CBD Oils, we combined these 2 powerful forces—MCT Oil and CBD—for a fast-acting and long-lasting impact on your overall well-being.
