Fractionated coconut oil is a very effective carrier for CBD because it contains 90% saturated fat. That may sound like it has the potential to clog your arteries. But it’s not because the saturated fats in coconuts are primarily made up of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs).
Fractionated coconut oil is made from regular coconut oil. But in the process, the long chain fatty acids are removed. Medium chain fatty acids work differently on the metabolism. They go directly to the liver, where they can give you an energy boost. Since the fractionated oil has no flavour at all, and no smell, it is considered by many in the industry to be the best carrier oil of all for sublingual use.
The benefits of MCT oil are; weight loss, increase of energy, it reduces the lactate buildup in athletes and helps their use for energy, powerful fatty acids that fight gut yeast and bacterial growth.
It also could help with autism, dementia, epilepsy and heart disease.
