4 Health Benefits of Cannabis Infused Coconut Oil
When you think of cannabis infused foods you likely most often think about cannabutter – but that is far from your only option. Cannabis infused coconut oil is an often healthier – and still tasty – alternative to infused butter and coconut oil alone is known to have a slew of health benefits. Combining that with the healing powers of THC and CBD and you’ve got a versatile cannabis product that could benefit you in some unexpected ways.
Could Improve Heart Health
Coconut oil, according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), consists of what are considered healthy fatty acids. These healthy fatty acids aid in lowering levels of bad cholesterol in the body. Combining this with THC – which binds best to fats – could help you see your blood pressure reduced and enhanced cardiovascular health.
Help Control Metabolism
This might come as a shock, but the “drug” that causes the munchies could also help you keep your metabolism in check. Some research has found that those who consume cannabis had less body fat than those who don’t. Put that together with a study that finds consuming coconut oil is also good at helping to regulate your metabolism.
Reduce Inflammation, Aches and Pains
Often, inflammation and pain go hand in hand – where there is swelling there is likely pain, and cannabis infused topicals are the perfect alternative to prescription pain killers. Since coconut oil is high in fats and THC binds to fats, this is one of the most popular oils to combine with THC for cannabis infused topical relief.
Anxiety and Depression
Cannabis is well known as being able to help reduce feelings of stress, anxiety and depression – so adding that to coconut oil, which could help regulate hormones, could only make it more effective. If you are suffering from any form of anxiety or depression, including insomnia, then cannabis infused coconut oil is an excellent option. However, for best results, you may want to consider a coconut oil friendly restaurant.
