About CBD Capsules
Administering CBD orally in the form of capsules 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, capsules 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 with fatty acids can help bypass first pass metabolism in the liver increasing the amount of CBD absorbed. Coconut oil is ideal for this not only due to its anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties but 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.
