Administering CBD orally in the form of capsules or tablets offers many benefits. They are convenient and an accurate way to measure your daily dosage. In addition to this they are tasteless and therefore perfect for those averse to the taste of CBD oil. That said however, any consumed substance will inevitably pass through our digestive and metabolic systems before entering the bloodstream which can reduce CBD’s bio-availability and increase the time taken to take effect.
Studies have found however, that consuming CBD oil with fatty acids can help bypass first pass metabolism in the liver increasing the amount of CBD absorbed. Equipped with this knowledge, we deliberately sourced premium capsules from the UK’s most reputable suppliers that mix their high grade extract with fractionated coconut oil. This is not only due to coconut’s anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties but also its abundance of Medium Chain Triglycerides. MCT are smaller fat molecules which are easily absorbed by the body through the intestinal walls, bypassing the liver in a process known as intestinal lymphatic transport therefore maximising the bio-availability of CBD.
