The rise in demand for CBD oil has fueled the creation of many delivery methods, from vape products to gummies and other forms of edibles. Yet, the tried and true formulation of tinctures with C8 MCT oil remains the most popular delivery method for several reasons, including the enhanced benefits it provides. Let’s take a look at why!
What is the difference between regular MCT oil and C8 MCT Oil?
Regular MCT oil (Medium-Chain Triglycerides) is a type of saturated fatty acid. The MCT oil most commonly used as carrier oil for CBD tinctures is obtained through processing the fats in coconut oil. The advantages of Medium Chain Triglycerides include; easily digestible, do not store in the body fat, antibacterial and antifungal and may reduce risk of heart disease.
There are 4 different kinds of MCTs:
- Caproic acid (C6)
- Caprylic acid (C8)
- Capric acid (C10)
- Lauric acid (C12)
100% Pure Caprylic acid C8 oil is a concentrated version of MCT oil that is like using a high-octane fuel that is nearly 10 times more supercharged than regular MCT oil.
When you use C8 MCT oil as the carrier oil for CBD tinctures you increase the benefits of the CBD oil and have the added benefits of C8 MCT.
What are the benefits of C8 MCT Oil?
The most powerful benefit of C8 MCT oil is due to the increased breakdown of the fatty acids into ketone energy, which assist with burning fat as well as increasing energy and cognitive function.
Ketones are chemicals your liver makes and you produce them when you don’t have enough insulin in your body to convert sugar (glucose) into energy. When this happens, your body uses fat instead, which your liver turns into ketones, a type of acid, and they are sent into your bloodstream for your muscles and other tissues to use for fuel.
C8 MCT oil can provide increased mental functioning, higher energy levels, better workout performance, as well as increased antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects and protections.
Benefits of Full-Spectrum CBD Tinctures with C8 Oil
Full-spectrum CBD tinctures provide an easy to administer delivery of the benefits of the whole plant profile of beneficial compounds found in the hemp plant. CBD tinctures can be dropped directly under the tongue for a fast, effective, bioavailable delivery by bypassing the digestive system.
CBD tinctures can also be added to any food or beverage, although it may take a bit longer to feel the effects because the CBD must pass through the digestive system.
CBD is a fat-soluble substance and is most effective when paired with a lipid type fatty acid. For this reason, C8 MCT oil acts as a carrier for the CBD and increases the concentration of absorption into the bloodstream and prevents it from degrading in the digestive system.
The Green Claw CBD Tinctures are also available in undetectable THC broad-spectrum and isolate formulas to accommodate those that prefer THC Free CBD. All of our CBD tinctures use C8 MCT oil as a carrier, thereby providing you with a superior CBD tincture formulation and an optimum experience of natural health and well-being.
