What Oil is the Best Carrier Oil for CBD?

CBD Oil is a tincture which is one of the most common and best methods to take CBD. A tincture uses a carrier oil which is then mixed with the CBD oil. This creates a product that is easy to use. It is taken under the tongue, sublingual, so it absorbs quickly into the blood steam via the mucus membrane and blood vessels under the tongue.

CBD is infused into oil-based solutions, where it binds with fat molecules your body is already prone to breaking down. Once the CBD is evenly distributed throughout the oil, it is possible to evenly measure consistent amounts of CBD that your body can process. This way you count the drops that is taken, finding the right dosage for you. 

If the CBD oil was not mixed with a carrier oil, it would be a thick sticky pasty substance that would stick to your teeth and be harder for most people to consume. Not to mention the taste is unbearable for many people.

Bioavailability, or how readily the body can absorb the oil, is the biggest concern when determining the best carrier oil. CBD’s bioavailability is largely determined by the types of fat molecules contained in the carrier oil. There are many different types of fat and the way they vary on a molecular level affects how well it can transport CBD into your system. Besides bioavailability, individual differences between oils such as flavor, consistency, and cost may affect their viability as carrier oils. 

 

Hemp Seed Oil

It’s worth pointing out that the hemp plant actually produces a super high-quality essential oil from its seeds, that, in addition to being filled with therapeutic CBD, is chock-full of other beneficial health supplements like phytonutrients, hytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.

So you might be wondering, then, why do some manufacturers use a “carrier”  oil if the hemp plant itself produces a good oil?

Well, that’s actually a very good question for if you are going to be using a full-spectrum hemp extract, then why not just use the actual hemp seed oil itself as a carrier for the CBD?

Well, as it turns out coconut oil has some specific properties that many doctors and scientists believe aids in overall absorption and metabolism. This fractionated oil is called MCT oil.

Fractionated Coconut Oil (MCT Oil)

There’s a lot of misunderstanding about MCT oil, so we’ll try and be as clear as possible here when describing why it’s used in CBD oil.

Coconut Oil has little to no flavor, which makes it a great choice for making tinctures. Additionally, it is thinner than most oils, making it easy to dispense and measure. Coconut oil has natural anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties.

“MCT” itself is actually a natural extract from raw coconut oil, and it stands for medium chain triglycerides. Coconut oil has both “medium chain” and “long chain” triglycerides as part of its natural molecular componentry, but as we just mentioned there have been numerous studies that show MCT to be superior in terms of the efficiency of digestion. As such, a lot of health supplements (medicinal CBD tinctures included) have started infusing their products in MCT oils to try and market them as having “improved absorption,” or something of a similar sort.

But here’s the catch; separating the “MCT’s” from the “LCT’S” is not an easy process. In fact, it’s a very, very , very difficult process that involves highly technical instruments and a massive degree of chemical expertise. It’s assumed, in fact, that a decent majority of products labeled “MCT oil” are simply fractionated coconut oils. This doesn’t necessarily imply a good or a “bad” thing, it just simply just means that you may not be getting exactly what you think you’re getting when you see a label marked “MCT.”

 

Palm Oil

Palm oil can also be used to make MCT oil, just like coconut oil. That is because MCT oil is a somewhat general term which refers to the type of fat molecules in an oil, not the natural source of the oil. This is an important distinction because palm oil’s manufacturing process is often connected to deforestation, animal cruelty, and climate change. For this reason, it is suggested to use MCT oil which originates from coconuts, or other sustainable and eco-friendly sources.

 

Olive Oil

Olive oil has a light fruity taste, which may be noticeable in some tinctures. Additionally, olive oil tends to be thicker, which may affect the measuring process. Monounsaturated fats are the premier fat molecules in olive oil, generally in the form of oleic acid. These larger fat molecules require more processing which may reduce the amount of CBD your body absorbs. However, oleic acid may help reduce inflammation and is packed with antioxidants.

 

Avocado Oil

Similar to olive oil, avocado oil has high concentrations of oleic acid, however, it is much thicker. Avocado oil has a nutty taste and can be added to CBD oils to increase the viscosity. Avocado oil is often chosen for topical applications due to its slow drying time and abundance of vitamins A, D, & E. One downside of Avocado oil is that it is one of the more expensive oils on this list.

 

Grape Seed Oil

Grape seed oil is thin and has a wine-like aroma. It is isn’t very greasy, so grape seed oil is often incorporated into skin and hair products. Unfortunately, grape seed oil primarily consists of polyunsaturated fats which doesn’t make it the best carrier oil for CBD.

Grape seed oil is a very inexpensive carrier oil. More than likely, if you run across a CBD oil using grape seed oil as the carrier, the company is charging market price for an inferior product.

 

You can expect the best CBD oils to be made with one of these carrier oils: Coconut oil, MCT oil (this is just a natural fractionated version of coconut oil), Olive oil, or Raw Hemp Seed oil.

If the product that you’re using has anything else in the ingredients other than these things (and possibly some natural flavoring if you’re using a flavored oil tincture), then it’s advised you shop around for something else, because it’s probably not a truly “pure” cannabis product.

The main thing is that you’re using a quality-grade product that’s been extracted using super critical CO2 methods, and contains no added chemicals, thinning agents, heavy metals, pesticides, or fertilizers.

My Testimonial of the CTFO Product: Lash and Brow Growth Serum

Lash and Brow Growth Serum

Even though my main focus is health and wellness, I do like to use beauty products as well. Of course these products have to be healthy as our skin absorbs whatever we put on them.

I saw the Lash and Brow Growth Serum, a non-CBD product, and thought I would try it. I have used different brands of lash and brow growth products in the past with little to no results. I ordered it and kept an open mind with no expectations. I did not take ‘before’ pictures because, well, honestly … I wasn’t really sure if there were going to be any noticeable results.

Wow, oh wow, was I ever surprised to see the results! My eyelashes were getting longer and my eyebrows were filling in nicely. My lashes and brows felt softer and look healthier than ever before!

 

 

Another bonus was that I discovered was that mascara went on easier too. I am greatly impressed and now have a new favorite beauty product. I feel that my list of favorite beauty products will grow as I continue to use the CBD and non-CBD Beauty Products by CTFO.

Aging, Looking and Feeling Old is a Choice… and I choose not to subscribe to those outdated and useless aspects of thinking.

What is the Difference Between Cannabinoids and Cannabidiol?

As you set out to learn more about cannabidiol (CBD) and its properties, it’s not uncommon to find yourself confused over many of the terms related to the compound. Often times, people have a challenging time understanding how cannabidiol differs from cannabinoids, two commonly used terms that share spelling similarities and are often used interchangeably.

To begin, it’s helpful if you understand that cannabidiol (CBD) is a type of cannabinoid. In fact, it’s one of more than 100 cannabinoids found throughout the stalks, seeds, and flowers of cannabis plants like hemp. From there, let’s dive in a bit deeper to better understand how these two terms differ.

What are Cannabinoids?

 

natural-cannabinoids

 

Cannabinoids are active chemical compounds found naturally in the seeds, stalk and flowers of cannabis plants. Phytocannabinoids, a term used to describe cannabinoids derived from plants, are able to interact with our body’s natural systems because their makeups and behaviors mimic endocannabinoids, which are cannabinoids that are synthesized on demand by our own bodies.

Our bodies are set up to interact with cannabinoids. Both phytocannabinoids and endocannabinoids join with or influence cannabinoid receptors throughout the body to alter the release of neurotransmitters and encourage balance in our systems. Cannabinoids are largely responsible for the natural effects that cannabis oils, such as CBD Hemp oil, have on the body.

Scientists have so far identified over 100 phytocannabinoids found in cannabis plants like hemp. The two most abundant cannabinoids include cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

The cannabinoid composition of a cannabis plant is wide ranging and varies by strain. Some are higher in CBD and others contain more THC. Hemp is naturally higher in CBD and contains only trace amounts of THC. 

 

What is Cannabidiol?

Cannabidiol2

Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is among the most abundant of all the cannabinoids. It’s found in all varieties of cannabis, but dominates the makeup of hemp plants.

Thousands of scientific studies suggest that cannabidiol may hold a wide array of potential benefits. CBD has been shown in a patent by the U.S. National Institutes of Health to possess significant and antioxidant and neuroprotective properties, suggesting that it could be beneficial for treating neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s disease or multiple sclerosis. Several studies have found CBD to be effective for reducing, and in some cases eliminating, seizure activity. *

Studies have shown that cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, unlike THC. Therefore, consuming CBD won’t ever cause a high or temporarily inhibit cognitive functions. This makes CBD an appealing option for children or anyone looking to incorporate the balancing effects of cannabinoids without having to experience the fuzziness of a high.

CBD Hemp Oil is made from hemp that is naturally high in CBD and low in THC. Because hemp contains only trace amounts of the cannabinoid THC, hemp oil products are non-psychoactive.

CBD helps with Sleep and Insomnia.

Complications_of_insomnia

Insomnia In The U.S. is still a pressing Public Health Problem.

According to a recent Huffington Post article by Catherine Pearson, “Sleep is a major problem for many Americans, according to a new report that acts as a kind of “state-of-insomnia” in the U.S. The review, published online by the medical journal The Lancet, finds that nearly a quarter of adults are unhappy with their sleep patterns, while up to 10 percent meet the criteria for full-fledged insomnia, putting them at a greater risk for depression, hypertension and diabetes.”

It’s easy to joke about this issue… but it’s no joke. Why do so many of us have trouble falling asleep or sleeping through the night? Some say it’s our stress-filled lifestyles. Some say it’s a by-product of anxiety. Some say we’ve become dependent on alcohol or over-the-counter drugs to help us sleep. The truth is, using these crutches may actually interfere with the deep “REM” sleep that we all need for rest and recuperation.

 

Sleep Support Oral Spray Banner

 

 

CTFO’s Sleep Support Oral Spray uses a combination of CBD and Melatonin to help you fall asleep naturally and without drugs or alcohol. Both of these natural ingredients have been shown to relax you and help you fall asleep. Some of our customers even say the CBD drops alone help them fall asleep.

With better quality sleep, we can all have more peaceful nights and better overall health.

Epilepsy in Dogs and CBD for Treatment

CB Receptors in your dogs body
For most dogs, epilepsy is a lifelong disease requiring a regimented routine of care and treatment as prescribed by your veterinarian. A canine seizure is the result of abnormal electrical impulses in the brain which lead to sudden but short-term disturbances in your dog’s behavior and physical movements.

Dogs with idiopathic epilepsytypically have their first seizures between the ages of 6 months to 6 years. Though idiopathic epilepsy can occur in any breed, it is considered an inheritable disease in many breeds and in some breeds a genetic basis has been identified. Therefore, dogs diagnosed with idiopathic epilepsy should not be used for breeding.

Commonly affected breeds include:

Labrador retrievers
Golden retrievers
Poodles
Keeshonds
Beagles
German shepherds
Dachshunds
Irish setters
Cocker spaniels

Symptoms
Prolonged seizures lasting more than 5 minutes or two or more consecutive seizures without full recovery are referred to as status epilepticus. This is a true emergency and you should seek immediate veterinary care for you pet. Two or more seizures in 24 hours are referred to as cluster seizures and are an indication for beginning anti-seizure medication.

It may be difficult to watch your pet have a seizure but most are of short duration and cause no permanent harm. Avoid being bitten by keeping your hands away from your pet’s mouth during a seizure. If it can be done safely, provide padding and move your pet away from stairs to prevent injury.
Treatment

Epilepsy can usually be managed with anti-convulsant drugs. If your veterinarian determines that your dog’s epilepsy is idiopathic, one or more of the following medications may be prescribed:

~ Phenobarbital helps reduce the frequency of your dog’s seizures and is the most prescribed medication for dogs with idiopathic epilepsy. It is generally a well-tolerated drug.

~ Potassium bromide is another seizure medication that may be added to your dog’s treatment, if she does not respond well to phenobarbital alone.
CBD ( Cannabidiol) as an alternative Treatment
For pets suffering from seizures, the use of Cannabidiol has been shown to be an effective, non-toxic form of treatment. Statistically speaking, a survey conducted by AHVMA that relied on pet-owner testimonials reported that between 61.8% and 95% of pet owners endorsed the benefits of treat products laced with CBD. According to another study titled, “Pharmacokinetics of cannabidiol in dogs,” researchers concluded that CBD has properties that can prevent convulsant and epileptic symptoms. 

Despite the studies and testimonials, it perhaps comes as no surprise that the use of CBD to treat pet health issues is being met with skepticism and concern. However, some of these concerns can perhaps be refuted when taking a closer look at CBD and where it comes from.

Though coming from the cannabis plant, CBD is the non-psychotropic hemp cultivar that is high in fiber and CBD, and low in THC. The latter (THC) actually has the potential to be harmful for pets. According to an article posted by Hawthorne Vet, the use of THC can bind to highly responsive receptors in a pet’s brain, leading to “static ataxia,” or behaviors that include the animal drooling, urinating excessively, and/or disorientation. Furthermore, if your pet is administered a product or drug that contains too much THC, there exists a risk for toxicity. Therefore, when considering the use of CBD on pets for health issues, it is important to avoid the use of THC and rather look for a product that contains only CBD, derived from hemp. 

When opting to utilize Cannabidiol to treat your pet’s seizures, it is important to start with the lowest dose possible and only then gradually increase the dosage, if necessary. Calculating the starting dose for your pet involves taking your pet’s weight in kilograms, determining the concentration of the CBD-product being used, and dividing the dosage across multiple administrations throughout the day. 

DOSES of CBD
In general, starting doses of CBD for pain and arthritis is 1 mg/10 lbs of body weight once to twice daily. I started my last dog on this dose to provided symptomatic pain relief for mouth cancer. I eventually increased his dose to 2 mg/10 lbs twice daily and he responded extremely well. 
So for pet seizures, we would be looking at a dose of  2 mg/10 lbs a day at the low end or 10 mg/10 lbs daily.
1. Talk to your vet! Your dog needs to stay on current ant-seizure meds and slowly wean off.
2. I would start for the 1st week on the low dose of 1 mg/10 lbs a day then increase to twice a day by the end of the week.
3. Then it’s a matter of lowering the conventional medications and seeing if the seizures are decreasing.
4. It may mean getting up to the higher doses of 2-5 mg/10 lbs a day.
Heal Your Pet At Home!

Best Wishes,

CBD Hemp Oil Bulletproof Coffee! CBD Hemp Oil and Coconut Oil: How MCT Oil Acts as a Carrier for Cannabinoids.

CBD Hemp Oil Bulletproof Coffee

 

It seems like everyone these days is discussing the benefits of CBD Hemp Oil and looking for information about the best way to add this powerful supplement to their routines.

A common question people ask is in regards to the most efficient way to take CBD oil so that the cannabinoids in the oil have the easiest time interacting with the body. It is here that coconut oil and CBD oil’s relationship comes into focus.

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. However, it appears that the type of fat matters.

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.

First thing in the morning, I apply CBD Hemp Oil under my tongue. I hold the CBD Hemp Oil under my tongue, without swallowing for at least 30 seconds. Then I prepare my morning cup of hot coffee. However, my coffee is not a normal cup of coffee. I add 1 tablespoon of coconut MCT oil, 1 tablespoon of grass feed unsalted butter with just a little bit of coconut milk to the fresh brewed coffee, then stir it up until it is blended. I use an electric stir stick to blend all the ingredients together. Add any additional flavorings by sprinkling cinnamon, turmeric, or ginger on top. Then drink up… enjoy your delicious and healthy cup of coffee!

I call this my ‘CBD Bullet Proof Coffee’.  I don’t add the CBD oil into the coffee because it is more effective if you add it directly under your tongue so that it absorbs faster through the mucous membrane, instead of being absorbed through your digestive system. So absorb the CBD Hemp Oil first, then follow that with the bullet proof coffee. 

What a powerful way to start the day!
