When purchasing hemp-derived products, you may find yourself confused about the inclusion of other ingredients. Topicals, edibles, and oils can all contain a variety of different ingredients, each with their own purpose. It’s important to do your research and talk to your doctor before using hemp products, and ensure you are purchasing quality products.
What Can Be Found In Distillate?
Hemp distillate and hemp-derived products can contain numerous different additives. You will commonly find additional oils in your hemp-derived products. Ingredients can be added with the intention of introducing additional medicinal benefits as well.
A carrier oil, as the name suggests, transports the active compound’s contents. Because essential oils or concentrates can be too potent on their own, carrier oils are used to dilute them. Carrier oils are used to help dissolve CBD molecules to increase bioavailability. Typically, a medium-chain triglyceride (MCT oil) is used, and this is often made from coconut oil, though nut or other plant-based carrier oils can be used as well.
Knowing the type of carrier oil in your hemp-derived product is important if you want to avoid potential exposure to allergens or irritants. Sometimes, though, carrier oils can bring their own health benefits! Avocado oil, for example, is rich in healthy fats and antioxidants, helps reduce cholesterol, and can even improve skin texture.
Carrier oils improve the bioavailability of everything they come into contact with, including essential oils. This is why distillates often include essential oils.
Essential oils are plant compounds, or terpenes, extracted from plants. They carry unique benefits like anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties, and when absorbed into the bloodstream can improve digestion and immunity, and even be used to treat nausea.
When combined with the amazing medicinal properties of hemp, scientists have been able to create incredibly effective topicals that can improve a wide variety of conditions.
