Hemp contains different essential oils, called Terpenes, that are responsible for the various flavors as well as effects.

What is a carrier oil?

Hemp is encapsulated in a carrier oil in order to increase its bio-availability, to make it easy to cook with, and also to provide accurate dosage.

 

MCT Oil is scientifically the most bio-available but Hemp seed oil is a good option if you have a coconut allergy. MCT oil is short for fractionated coconut oil, and it’s basically refined for its healthy fats.

MCT oil is actually used as a supplement by itself in the keto diet.
