Our CBD is made from responsibly grown; CO2 extracted hemp oil mixed with a carrier called MCT oil. MCT stands for medium-chain triglyceride and is most commonly extracted from coconut oil, as more than 50% of the fat in coconut oil comes from MCTs. These naturally occurring fatty acids contain medium-length chains of fats called triglycerides. Due to their shorter length, MCTs are easily digested and have many benefits linked to the way your body processes these fats.
And why we use it? Well, cannabinoids are fat soluble and are more effective when consumed with fat. MCT oil contains saturated fat which helps the body absorb cannabinoids. Using MCT oil allows for a relatively rapid release. The oil is directly metabolized into energy allowing your body to burn those fats and put the cannabinoids they hold to use right away.
