Why is MCT Oil the Best Carrier Oil for CBD?

coconutOne of the most popular ways to ingest CBD is by using an oil tincture. When CBD is infused into oil-based solutions, it binds with the fat molecules your body is already prone to breaking down. Having CBD mixed with an oil makes it possible to evenly measure consistent amounts of CBD that your body can easily process. There are several different oils that you may find CBD mixed with. Fractionated Coconut Oil (MCT oil) is the oil of choice for UnCanna tinctures, here’s why.

Coconut oil is a top pick as a carrier oil for many reasons. It has little to no flavor, which makes it a great option for tinctures. It’s thinner than most oils and stays liquid at room temperature, making it simple to measure and dispense. Coconut oil is also known for its’ potent anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.

One of the best qualities of coconut oil is the naturally occurring saturated fats, medium chain triglycerides (MCT) being one. MCT’s are medium-length fatty acids, which are easily absorbed by the body. Fractionated coconut oil is coconut oil which has had the longer fat molecules removed to isolate the medium chain triglycerides. When cannabinoids break down, they’re stored in fat versus water (fat soluble). For this reason, CBD is best consumed with fat to increase absorption.
