CBD oil is a blend of MCT oil and the compound Cannabidiol (CBD). These two ingredients are what make up our CBD Oil Tinctures, and also is the basis of our CBD Gel Capsules.
Cannabidiol is one of the over 100 phytocannabinoids (ph-eye-toh-can-ah-bin-oids) in the cannabis sativa genus of plants. A cannabinoid (can-ah-bin-oid) is one of the many diverse chemical compounds that acts on cannabinoid receptors in the endocannabinoid (end-oh-can-ah-bin-oid) system.
MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglyceride. Medium Chain Triglycerides are a type of saturated fatty acid. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a fat-soluble compound so it is most effective, and diffused for absorption, when coupled with a lipid like a fatty acid. By choosing to use a quality carrier oil like a coconut MCT, we are ensuring the safest partner for our recognized, hemp-derived CBD. This means that you are getting an optimal blend when you order from Medterra.
