Cannabinoids are fat soluble, meaning they break down and are stored in fat rather than water. Because of this trait, cannabinoids are most effective when consumed with fat, increasing their bioavailability.
Saturated fats are important carriers for cannabinoids to be absorbed into the body. Coconut oil contains saturated fat at levels close to 80%, giving cannabinoids the fat cells it needs to move through the body, encouraging faster processing and use by the endocannabinoid system.
Specifically, coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides or fatty acids. Using coconut oil or other products that contain medium-chain-triglycerides (MCT oils) triggers a relatively rapid release of cannabinoids when compared to other oils because MCT oils are directly metabolized into energy by the liver. This means that your body can burn those fats and put them – and the cannabinoids they hold – to use right away This means that your body can burn those fats and put them – and the cannabinoids they hold – to use right away.
What we've done is take MCT oil and added our own blend of flavors with our full spectrum extract. We have found that spraying a mist into the mouth instead of using a dropper helps in two ways. The mist will coat more membranes in the mouth and will metabolize faster. Secondly more of the taste buds will be coated all at once, making it taste better.
Our bottles come only at 150 mg per 30 ml (fluid ounce).
