Coconut Oil & CBD, 10 things you didn’t know about this popular oil blend

Coconut Oil & CBD has a myriad of uses, it has become one of the most popular oil combinations on the market today. Uses range from cooking, weight loss to dry skin protection, animal care and dry scalp relief.

The history

But how did this magical oil go from cherished and appreciated too demonized and rejected? It is a simple answer…Money! What was once a valued and healthy oil used for cooking and beauty, turned into a demonized saturated oil. American farmers wanted to sell their soybean oil to consumers rather than the tropical island palm oils.

It was not hard to convince the public that soybean was a healthier alternative considering saturated oils. A lot of health professionals talk about how saturated fats are connected to high cholesterol and heart disease. The switch from to coconut to soybean oil came with little to no research on the actual side effects of soybean. It came with promises that it was a healthier and more affordable option and in fact it was not. Soybean oil is hard to digest, causing bloating, constipation, allergic reactions and fatigue.

How it helps us

Over time coconut oil is constantly researched for its ability to treat and manage diseases like Alzheimers, diabetes, heart disease & inflammation. It helps to prevent infections and overall illnesses caused by bacteria, such as yeast infections. It’s also extremely beneficial for getting rid of bad bacteria in the mouth and skin.

Coconut Oil & CBD is wonderful smelling and smoothing, a natural way to help your hair grow longer, thicker, and faster. The vitamins and essential fatty acids naturally found in the oil nourish the scalp and help to remove sebum build-up from hair follicles. It has helped my hair follicles recover from damage caused by overexposure to the elements and from coloring.

It can clog pores, and may contribute to acne breakouts in some people. If you have oily skin already, coconut oil might cause blackheads, pimples, or whiteheads to form. Because of this, beauty products contain MCT oil instead.
