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 broad spectrum cbd confections and tinctures with a fat carrier like organic coconut and olive oil. we’re a BIG fan of fats here at baceae!
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.
benefits of coconut oil
rich in healthy medium chain fatty acids that are easily digested and sent right to the liver for energy production. this allows the cannabis hemp we infuse into the coconut oil to be processed quickly and effectively by the liver.
- its antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral, and antimicrobial, while the lauric acid in coconut oil helps increase immunity and fights infections.
- contains healthy fatty acids that can help lower your ldl or bad cholesterol levels in the body, while cbd is also known to lower blood pressure, making this combination an all-around boost for your cardiovascular health.
helpful for digestion, its antimicrobial properties can help fight irritation and infection in the gut from candida.
topically, its natural antioxidant properties make it great for stopping wrinkles and skin irritation.
studies have shown that coconut oil can improve the moisture content of dry skin, reduce the symptoms of eczema, protects against skin damage, and improve oral health.
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.
our olive oil is locally sourced from the sacramento valley from a small, family-run farm called organic roots. the farm is run by the polit family who grow beautiful, super high density olive trees that are thoughtfully cultivated and maintained. the polit family own and manage every step of the olive oil making process from the olive orchards to the harvesting to the mill. we are proud to source our organic olive oil from such a thoughtfully run family farm!
