with so many cannabis-based products on the market today, it can be confusing to choose which way is best to consume cbd. we consider ourselves to be traditionalists when it comes to consuming our cannabinoids and choose to create our hemp-based confections and tinctures with a fat carrier like organic coconut oil and cooc-certified organic olive oil.
why? well, one of the main reasons is a fat-based carrier oil improves absorption in the gut, and cannabis along with its extracts just happen to be a fat-soluble substance. we believe this is the most effective and long-lasting way to consume our cannabis-based products.
coconut oil’s saturated fat content makes it perfect for cannabis hemp confections. when used as a carrier oil, coconut oil can carry more cannabinoids and provide more cannabidiol for our cells to absorb directly through the intestinal wall, instead of the liver, where it would just be cycled out.
considered a superfood, coconut oil is nutrient-rich, contains healthy fats and provides many health benefits like boosting brain function, improving heart health and weight management.
olive oil is another excellent carrier of cannabis hemp for two very important reasons: its major health benefits and its synergy with our endocannabinoid system.
in the mediterranean, humans have utilized olive oil in their diets for centuries, which many believe is the key for their overall health and longevity. extra-virgin olive oil is rich in antioxidants that help strengthen your immune system, helping your body resist inflammation, infection and oxidative damage.
we truly believe in our down-to-earth approach for consumption as the safest way to ingest cannabis like our ancestors have for thousands of years
