Understanding carrier oil for CBD is an important part of your buying decisions. Whether you’re a first-time CBD user, or you are looking for an alternative to uncover how they may respond differently; understanding why they matter – matters.

At Pawt4Paws, we choose MTC coconut oil as a carrier oil, and there are many reasons why.

Firstly …What is Carrier Oil?

As the title itself insinuates; a carrier oil is a literal carrier. It acts as a means to dissolve compounds found in hemp, making it more palatable for consumption and much easier to absorb. Think of how you would dissolve juice concentrate in water. In a similar way, hemp dissolves – so to speak, into carrier oils. Although, instead of water, a fat substance is used in order for the cannabinoids to be soluble.

Examples of carrier oil for CBD include:

  • MCT Oil
  • Hemp Seed Oil
  • Sunflower Oil
  • Avocado Oil
  • Grapeseed Oil

What to Consider?

There are three main things to consider:

  • Carrier oil is a fat-soluble substance that enhances CBD absorption in the gut
  • Different carrier oils allow for better dose measurements and management
  • There are additional health benefits that a carrier oil for CBD can offer

Coconut oil is a great example of this, and Pawt4Paws oil of choice. It offers both antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal properties – just to name a few.

Why We Choose MTC Coconut oil for CBD?

MTC oil provides the ‘ideal’ fat molecule. Known as a ‘medium-chain triglyceride, it is defined by dailycbd.com as…” a triglyceride basically involves combining three fatty acids of varying lengths (short, medium, and long-chained fats) together with a sugary glyceride backbone holding them all together. ”

MCT oil is a derivative of coconut oil. It is high in triglycerides and contains a medium-chain fatty acid, which is known to be the best combination for CBD oil as the digestion process is immediate, as is the absorption. Our Britelife CBD Oil contains C02 extracted hemp terpene with organic MTC oil, and it hits the sweet spot for the aforementioned absorption. In addition, it is 100% natural, non-GMO, Vegan, THC-free, and 3rd party tested for optimal quality and results.
