Three Uses for Cannabis Infused Coconut Oil
Most of us already know that cannabis itself offers a slew of health benefits – so pairing it with another oil that is known to have many health benefits of its own is like a match made it heaven, is it not?
There are dozens of ways that you can use cannabis infused coconut oil as it can both be used as an edible and as a topical – but here we will touch on four of the most common uses for cannabis infused coconut oil.
For Healthier Edibles
When it comes to cooking with cannabis you will want to use something fatty that the THC can bind to – which is why cannabutter is often used. Evergreen Organix even has their own Homemade Cannabutter! However, if you are looking for a healthier fat, then you may want to consider their Cannabis Infused Coconut Oil instead.
Coconut oil is high in healthy fats that can help you lower bad cholesterol; it is also known to reduce inflammation, improve metabolism, and boost cognition among other things. Anyone looking for a healthier edible will be seriously pleased with the choice to use cannabis infused coconut oil as an alternative to cannabutter.
Topical Pain Relief
Another one of the common uses for cannabis infused coconut oil is as a topical pain reliever. The THC infused into the oil can provide pain relieving effects as the oil and cannabinoid is absorbed into the skin of the affected area. This is a great option for those who are looking for immediate and specific relief to muscle or joint pain.
Coconut oil itself is also often used as a carrier oil for essential oils – which means you can use your THC infused coconut oil in the same way. By adding additional oils like peppermint that may offer pain relieving effects as well you can gain double the relief if you add these sorts of additional oils.
Skin Care and Moisturizer
Interestingly, both coconut oil and cannabis are beneficial to skin care. Cannabis has antioxidants that can help repair skin cells faster which could slow the aging process, while coconut oil can help return moisture to your skin without leaving you feeling overly oily. No matter your age you should always be taking care of your skin and THC infused coconut oil makes that extremely quick, easy, and convenient.
Evergreen Organix has a Cannabis Infused Coconut Oil that is 100 percent solvent free – meaning it can be used whenever normal coconut oil would have been used and is dosed at 950 milligrams of THC per jar.
