Coconut oil has been growing in popularity among various groups of people for a while now. It makes sense that the cannabis community decided to give it a go.
Coconut oil has been proven to have profound positive effects on one’s health. It is extremely versatile and very cost effective. A 15-ounce jar will run about $15.00 and you can turn that into baked goods, topicals, and capsules.
It is very convenient to use considering it remains in a solid state at room temperature. Coconut oil is high in essential fatty acids, which acts as a binding agent for the cannabis. It also contains large amounts of lauric acid, which is why coconut oil can combat viruses and bacteria. Lauric acid is one of the key ingredients in breast milk that keeps the immune system strong.
Coconut oil is a perfect replacement for butter and other types of oil typically used in the kitchen. It is a great substitute for butter when it comes to baked goods and that is why coconut oil quickly became popular among cannabis users. You can make loads of smoothies, soups, dressings, stir-fry’s, sauces, and baked-goods with the infused oil. It is also gluten free, dairy free, and vegan. If you’re not much of a chef, you can easily put the oil in capsules and let your body do the rest. Capsules are a great way to go because the liver immediately starts to process the infused oils once they are ingested.
