For generations, the American Heart Association held a specific stance on fat consumption, cholesterol levels, and so on. Today, they still recommend against the consumption of coconut oil on grounds that high levels of saturated fat raise LDL levels. Additionally, Harvard Health’s stance on the healthiness of coconut oil consumption may surprise you.
They argue that many of the health claims in favor of coconut oil stem from research done on oils containing 100% MCTs. This is inconsistent, they say, with coconut oil that you find in grocery stores (which contains mostly lauric acid). In short, be wary that not all coconut oils you see for sale in supermarkets and health food stores are the same. Check the labels, and know what you’re looking for before you grab a bottle and head to the checkout line. If you skipped all the way down to the bottom here and skimmed over the meat of the article, here’s the general gist on MCT oil and CBD: basically, MCT (which stands for medium-chain triglycerides) is a synthetically-produced oil that is a combination of both coconut oil and palm oil. It’s believed to be superior to the pure versions of each oil, as all of the long-chain triglycerides (which are difficult to metabolize and usually end up as stored fat) have been removed. MCTs , on the other hand, are very efficiently metabolized and are almost immediately available to the body as an energy supply. That said, be wary of the fact that not all CBD oils with coconut oil are made the same.
In fact, you’ll find large variations in quality and ingredients among various products on the current market. Many brands nowadays that use MCTs in their coconut oil use a process called CO2 extraction to pull cannabinoids from plant material. Some consider CO2 extraction to be the “gold standard” of CBD oil production. However, there are other extraction techniques that can produce high-quality products. Cryogenic ethanol extraction, for example, can produce great results. Since ethanol is an alcohol-based solvent, it works chemically to “strip” the hemp of its CBD, as well as other active compounds. What’s left over is a rich hemp extract with a full spectrum of cannabinoids. Additional processing and filtering can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. In short, if you’re going to buy CBD oil with MCT, be sure to do your due diligence and research a quality product. Spend some time reading reviews, and don’t settle on the first product you happen to come across. We're in the practice of treating your family like ours.
