CBD Oil and Coconut Oil: The Perfect Combination?
In the health industry both CBD oil and coconut oil are booming. This is because it is not becoming widely accepted that these oils can provide incredible health benefits in many ways. A new concept is pairing the two together to provide even an even more powerful health punch. Before we look at why these two oils make such a great couple. Let’s first look at some of the health benefits of each individual oil.
- Coconut Oil can provide an array of health benefits. Here are some of the most popular:
- Improves Cholesterol
- Antibiotic, Anti-fungal, Anti-viral and Antibacterial Properties
- Reduces Inflammation
- Improves Cognitive Function
- Promotes Healthy Skin
- Improves Digestion
- Provides Energy
- On top of these proposed health benefits, there is also a lot of research suggesting that Coconut oil can aid in the protection against neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Scientist Mary Newport found fascinating results when she used Coconut oil to treat her husband who was suffering from the disease. This has opened the door into the therapeutic potential of coconut oil!
Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is a compound found in cannabis. It does not contain THC so it does not have a psychoactive component. This means that CBD oil does not alter the state of one’s consciousness like marijuana would. CBD oil is just now starting to gain popularity and with good reason. Here are some of the proposed health benefits:
- Improves Anxiety
- Relieves Nausea
- Can Reduce Seizures
- Improves Cardiovascular Health
- Improves Sleep Quality
- In addition to these health benefits, there is also a growing body of research suggesting that CBD oil may possess the ability to battle cancer as well!
CBD and Coconut Oil
With all the health benefits mentioned for each of these oils, the question now is why pair them. To understand this, it is important to understand some of the properties of CBD oil. Compounds found in cannabis, such as CBD oil, are fat soluble. This means that to be broken down they require fat rather than just water. This means that to experience the highest magnitude of the proposed benefits of CBD oil, you must pair it with a fat. This is where Coconut Oil comes in.
Coconut oil is comprised primarily of saturated fats. Additionally, the fats in Coconut oil are known as Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) which are shorter chain fats. This may be a complex concept for some so for now just know that MCTs are more rapidly digested and are superior for nutrient absorption. This means that when CBD oil is combined with Coconut oil, there is a greater chance that the CBD oil will be able to provide its proposed benefits.

Frequently Asked Questions About CBD Coconut Oil
What is CBD coconut oil used for?
CBD is the topic of many studies aiming to prove its use in relieving a whole slue of symptoms and issues. CBD-infused coconut oil is just another product that allows you to get your daily dose or regimen of CBD. Rather than swallowing it like CBD oil, CBD coconut oil is most commonly used as a topical product, where you apply the coconut oil directly to your skin so that the CBD absorbs transdermally. CBD coconut oil can also be used as a cooking ingredient. You can replace your regular coconut oil with our CBD coconut oil to make your dessert or dish a bit more relaxing!
Why choose coconut oil over other oils?
When deciding on which CBD product to purchase, considering the rate of absorption and the specific carrier used in the product is important. Coconut oil is particularly suitable for CBD because of its high fat content. That fat molecules in coconut oil are the vehicles which carry CBD into your body. CBD is absorbed by the fat in coconut oil, and then your body absorbs the CBD-infused fat, effectively allowing your body to break down the CBD and enjoy its benefits. Generally, carrier oils with higher saturated fat content will work best for CBD absorption.
How do you make CBD coconut oil?
It’s a fairly simple process, really, and it can be performed using a wide rage of different equipment. The easiest way to make CBD coconut oil at home is to: 1) Finely grind your CBD-rich hemp flower. 2) Heat your coconut oil to its melting point. 3) Add your ground hemp flower and allow it to cook on low heat (BELOW 245 degrees F) 4) Cook for about 3 hours and then strain with a cheesecloth to remove unwanted plant matter. 5) Allow the mixture to cool and solidify, and you’re done!
With this method, you can make CBD-infused coconut oil at home just using a crockpot! However, executing this process in your kitchen is time-consuming, messy, and when you are using equipment at home, it probably won’t be an exact science. You’ll also have to get your hands on some high-quality hemp flower that you know is rich in CBD, or else this is just a waste of time.
Coconut Oil Benefits the Body in Many Ways
