Optimize Your CBD Experience with MCT Oil, Functional Mushrooms, and Adaptogens

If you didn't already know, we use MCT oil as the carrier oil for the hemp extract as well as our functional mushrooms and other adaptogens in our products. What does that mean and why do we do it? 

CBD Oil Composition: Hemp Extract and MCT Oil

CBD oil is generally made up of two parts: the hemp extract itself and a carrier oil.

Understanding Hemp Extract

Hemp extract is exactly what it says extract from the hemp plant. This is the part that contains all the phyto-cannabinoids and terpenes that support our endocannabinoid system.

Challenges of Pure Hemp Extract

Taking pure hemp extract is problematic for two reasons:

  1. Measurement: It would be very hard to accurately measure, as the dose is so small.
  2. Absorption: It needs to be in the presence of fat to be effectively absorbed by the body.

That's why nearly every CBD oil on the market comes in a carrier oil.

What is a Carrier Oil?

As the name implies, it’s an oil that carries another substance. In this case, our carefully selected CBD-rich hemp extract.

Why We Use MCT Oil

Through continued research and development, we have chosen a very specific carrier oil for our products: a premium quality, coconut-based MCT oil.

What is MCT Oil?

MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides. Derived from coconut or sustainably sourced palm kernel oil, MCTs are easier to digest and absorb than long-chain triglycerides. As a result, the CBD they carry is released into your system quickly.

Benefits of MCT Oil in CBD Products

  1. Great Taste: Many CBD oils can taste unpleasant due to the high volume of terpenes combined with cheap, bad-tasting carrier oils. Using a premium coconut-based MCT oil gives our products a much more pleasant taste without the burn.
  2. Good Source of Energy: MCT oil is easily and rapidly used as a fast energy source by the body, helping you feel less lethargic and more energetic during your daily activities.
  3. Environmentally Sustainable: Our MCT oil is made entirely from coconuts, not ecologically damaging palm oil trade sources, so you don’t need to worry about any damage to the environment.
  4. High in Lauric Acid: A potent antibacterial that may support clearer skin, gut health, metabolism, weight loss and more.
  5. Keto Friendly:  Yes CBD Oil with MCT is ketogenic.

Integrating Functional Mushrooms and Adaptogens

Beyond MCT oil, our CBD products are also enhanced with functional mushrooms and adaptogens to further support your well-being.

Functional Mushrooms

Functional mushrooms like reishi, lion's mane, and chaga are known for their health benefits. They can support immune function, enhance cognitive performance, and reduce inflammation.


Adaptogens like ashwagandha and rhodiola help your body adapt to stress and maintain balance. They support your adrenal function, helping you feel more relaxed and focused.

Why Combine CBD with Functional Mushrooms and Adaptogens?

The combination of CBD, MCT oil, functional mushrooms, and adaptogens creates a powerful synergy. This blend supports your endocannabinoid system, enhances your energy levels, and helps your body adapt to stress, providing a holistic approach to wellness.
