Frequently Asked Questions
Why are my tinctures pink?
This is due to an enzyme called polyphenol oxidase. Polyphenols are a type of naturally occurring antioxidant. Although our CBD mixed with MCT coconut oil start out as a golden liquid, due to high concentrations of polyphenols, it may turn pinkish the longer it is exposed to light and oxygen. As with other coconut waters/oils, this does not change the quality or effectiveness of our oils. In fact, it actually verifies the high quality of our MCT oil.
Why do you use MCT as a carrier oil?
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.
Can I mix your tinctures in beverages/food?
Supplementing your regular dose with edibles or drinks is completely acceptable. We even have recipes right here on our site.
But we always advise that you take them sublingually (Under the tongue). When ingested through a drink or edible, the cannabinoids or processed through your liver and then spread out into your bloodstream in which many cannabinoids get lost during this process
