MCT is the most popular carrier oil used in CBD products. MCT allows greater absorption than many other carriers, not to mention it is a very healthy oil to consume. MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) oils are chains of fats. As they are shorter in length, they are easily digested which is why they are used as a carrier for CBD oil. MCT oils are typically extracted from coconut as it accommodates over 50% medium-chain fats. MCT oils can also be created from palm.
