A carrier oil also referred to as base oil, is a vegetable oil used to dilute a high concentration of CBD. A carrier oil may also increase the bioavailability and absorption of essential oils, which is important for obtaining a more effective dose of CBD. Base oils usually have a mild taste, weight, and often have their own therapeutic benefits in addition to CBD. Here are some of the most commonly used together with CBD.

Hemp oil

Hemp oil is obtained from hemp seeds, which are considered to be SUPERFOODS, which are extremely rich in healthy fats, high-quality proteins, and other vitamins and minerals. One of the things that make hemp seed oil so special is that it is made up of over 80% omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.

The ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 is 3:1, which is considered optimal for human health. Hemp oil is also a major source of gamma-linolenic acid, which plays an important role in reproductive health, metabolism and proper brain function.

The health benefits associated with hemp oil include:

  • alleviates anxiety

  • alleviates inflammation

  • reduces the risk of heart disease

  • reduces premenstrual symptoms

  • helps with acne treatment

  • has antibacterial properties

Hemp oil is full of healthy fats and proteins that provide a number of health benefits. It is considered one of the healthiest vegetable oils ever and is also the most suitable candidate as a carrier oil for CBD.

MCT oil

MCT oil, or Medium-Chain-Triglycerides (MCT), is a dietary fat that is exclusively made from coconut pulp.

If you are looking for quality MCT oil, always choose 100% coconut oil.

This oil is a popular choice due to its easy digestion and high level of saturated fats. This helps the body to absorb cannabinoids and provides greater bioavailability of CBD.

There are also many benefits associated with MCT oil:

  • helps reduce weight

  • reliable power source

  • helps improve memory

  • has antibacterial properties

MCT oil is also a great carrier oil for CBD. Thanks to coconut oil, you do not have to use it only internally, but it can be used to lubricate the strained back. Try our CBD coconut oil!

Sunflower oil

This oil is naturally derived from sunflower seeds and contains omega-6 fatty acids, and this oil can also be used as a carrier.

Golden-colored sunflower oil has a delicate taste and promotes a healthy heart, as it contains more than 80% monounsaturated fats. It is often used in food and cosmetics as well as in many other essential oils.

Sunflower oil has a lot of famous benefits:

  • promotes a healthy heart

  • it is a natural moisturizer for dry and sensitive skin

  • rich in antioxidants

  • promotes healthy hair

  • improves digestion

Sunflower oil is also a suitable carrier oil for CBD.

Avocado oil

Avocado oil is full of healthy fats and is known for its numerous advantages. Unlike other common carrier oils, avocado oil has a rich, nutty taste.

It is also much heavier than other base oils used with CBD, which can make the body more difficult to digest.

Avocado oil has the following advantages:

  • lowers cholesterol

  • helps maintain skin

  • antioxidant properties

  • may reduce the symptoms of arthritis

With an abundance of vitamins A, D and E, avocado oil is a great supplement to any dietary supplement. However, it is a thick oil that is harder to digest.

Extra virgin olive oil

Did you know that the olive oil you use for cooking can also be used as a carrier oil for CBD?

Olive oil has similar health effects to avocado oil containing large amounts of vitamins A, D and E. It is also charged with antioxidants that can reduce the risk of heart disease and fight inflammation.

Although olive oil is associated with many health benefits, it requires more processing than other oils with high saturated fat content. This could mean that when combined with CBD, the bioavailability of CBD in oil could decrease.

Grape oil

This oil is obtained from grape seeds left over from wine production. It has a highly neutral taste and is characterized by its light color and aroma similar to wine.

This oil with a high content of polyunsaturated fats (mostly omega-6 fatty acids) is commonly found in cosmetics for healthy skin. Grape oil is also an excellent source of vitamin E, which has antioxidant properties. 

Grape oil is light and smooth on the skin, making it a good basis for CBD (cannabidiol) massage oils. Although it has a high content of omega-6 fatty acids, it lacks omega-3 fats that are needed for proper balance and optimal health.

Since grape oil is primarily made of polyunsaturated fats, it may not be the best choice as a base oil for CBD.

Pomegranate oil

It is known that pomegranate seed oil with a high content of omega-5 fatty acids has strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

It is a non-greasy oil that is used for anti-ageing products because it promotes skin cell regeneration and increases elasticity.

The benefits associated with pomegranate oil include:

  • antioxidant properties

  • anti-inflammatory properties

  • regeneration of skin cells

  • immune support

Pomegranate oil has a beneficial list of health benefits and can be a great choice as a carrier oil for CBD products, especially when it comes to topical skin solutions.

Arnica oil

Another carrier oil commonly found in skincare products; Arnica oil is associated with a reduction in inflammatory pain when applied topically.

Arnica oil is an excellent solution for local CBD products, but should not be taken orally, as it may be toxic for digestion.

Pumpkin oil

Pumpkin oil rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, vitamin E and zinc boasts great health benefits. It also contains Steroline, which strengthens and moisturizes skin and hair. It has a rich taste and is often paired with skincare products.

With a high number of important vitamins and minerals, pumpkin seed oil has many fantastic benefits.

It has antioxidant properties, restores skin, reduces inflammation and promotes healthy hair.

Pumpkin oil, commonly found in skincare products, is also a safe carrier oil for CBD. Because it has a great taste profile, it is a great addition to the CBD tincture.

There are many carrier oils for CBD. However, the most natural synergistic relationship is offered by organic hemp oils, which have a wonderful golden colour and a pleasant nutty taste.
