How can I get the most out of my CBD: Does the carrier oil matter?

Many users of CBD are looking for the health benefits that come from either CBD Isolate or Full Spectrum. You pay good money for your product and hope you will get the optimal benefits from your CBD, but often the carrier oil is overlooked and very few really understand how it may play a part in the efficacy of the product. If you'd like to understand why GheeBD is a superior way to absorb CBD continue reading.

What does a carrier oil do?

Exactly as the term specifies, a carrier oil will “carry” the CBD and the other phytochemicals and acts as a vessel to transport the CBD into your gut where it begins the absorption process. CBD is not water-soluble and therefore a “carrier” is vital to receiving the benefits of CBD.

How does CBD get absorbed?

A carrier oil or fat is the only mechanism that will allow for CBD to be absorbed into the microvilli of the gut where it will then go through a process to be transported into the lymphatic system eventually reaching the bloodstream. When we consume fats such as ghee, the receptors in the mouth start the digestive process, triggering the body to start producing enzymes that are necessary for the absorption of CBD and other cannabinoids into the lymphatic system and eventually the bloodstream and cannabinoid receptors.

Is Ghee a superior carry for CBD?

Ghee provides multiple health benefits on its own. Ghee is considered a superfood that contains omega 3, 6, and 9 essential fatty acids, 18 amino acids, 8 enzymes, 25 minerals, vitamins A. D, E, K and is one of the highest natural sources of CLA (conjugated linoleic acid). Its unique triglyceride profile made up of short, medium, and long-chain fatty acids make ghee a highly lipophilic superior carrier fat to transport CBD and nutrients deeper into the tissue layers of the body.

What are the health benefits of ghee?

Not only is ghee a superior carrier fat to CBD it may also reduce the risk of heart disease. Ghee contains antioxidants and is rich in conjugated linoleic acid, (CLA) a fatty acid known for its protective properties against artery plaques, diabetes, and carcinogens. Because of the mentioned benefits, researchers say ghee may be used to help prevent cardiovascular disease. Ghee is rich in butyric acid, a short-chain fatty acid that nourishes the cells of the intestines, and reduces inflammation in the mucosal walls, priming the body for optimal absorption of CBD.

How can I use ghee with CBD?
