There are many different carrier oils that can be used as a carrier oil for CBD. MCT, hemp and olive oil are the most common. MCT stands for medium-chain triglyceride. MCT oil is derived from coconut oil which is naturally high in triglycerides made of medium-chain fatty acids. Medium-chain fatty acids are considered the best for use with CBD oils because their shorter structure allows them to be absorbed immediately through the digestive tract. This oil also has very little taste compared to oils like hemp seed oil which some people find too strong.
We mainly use MCT as our carrier oil to ensure that there is as little taste to the oil as possible, making it a nicer experience for customers. However, in our most concentrated product we do use olive oil. This oil is rich in phytonutrients and also contains high levels of Iron, Vitamin K and Vitamin E. Another choice for you, as our customers.
