When people say "CBD oil" what they typically mean is CBD + oil, because isolated CBD usually comes in a highly concentrated powdered or crystallized form. It’s only when you add concentrated CBD to an oil (called carrier oils, which we’ll cover in another post) that you get CBD oil a.k.a concentrated CBD mixed evenly in an oil. One of the most commonly used oils in CBD products is MCT oil, which comes from coconuts or palm plants. These are just a few of the reasons why CBD in MCT oil is good for you. Like we mentioned earlier, CBD oil actually refers to a product where CBD concentrate is mixed into an oil called a “carrier oil”. This is because our bodies can’t effectively absorb concentrated CBD through the digestive system. The good news is that CBD dissolves really well in fats such as MCT oil, making it much easier for CBD to work its way into your system. Cannabidiol, commonly referred to as CBD, belongs to a group of compounds known as cannabinoids. These compounds interact with systems in the body to promote a wide range of benefits. Its effects differ from person to person, but are generally described as providing balance and a sense of well-being. The best way for a person to understand CBD and its benefits is by experiencing it directly.
MCT oil helps your body absorb CBD, but so do other carrier oils. What’s unique about MCT oil is that its chemical structure is smaller than other oils, which means your body breaks it down and starts using it faster. CBD is one of the most abundant cannabinoids in the cannabis plant and the number one most abundant cannabinoid in hemp plants. There is still a lot that we’re learning about these plants and the compounds that they produce, but it’s already clear that CBD plays an important role in the way cannabinoids interact with people and animals. CBD concentrate is highly potent in even tiny amounts. It would require small, unique measuring tools in order to get a person’s ideal serving size. Mixing CBD concentrate evenly into MCT oil makes it easier for the average person to measure out the right amount of CBD.
People who try CBD oil tend to notice it working, especially once they find a serving size that meets their needs.
