The use of CBD in cooking

CBD Oil info

Did you know that you can improve the bioavailability and absorption of CBD by combining CBD products with the right products?

Now that you know what CBD oil (or other CBD products) are, and the natural benefits of using them regularly, you’re probably wondering if there are ways to maximize the effectiveness of your daily CBD…

You can also find a surprising amount of conflicting information online about whether it is best to take CBD oil on an empty stomach or after a meal. However, if you look at exactly how CBD is absorbed, the answer is clear. Ingestion with food can improve the body’s interaction with its active ingredients – CBD.

Why taking CBD with food is good for you

Taking CBD with food can improve bioavailability, and eating certain types of food can further improve it. Bioavailability is the measure and rate at which a substance, in this case CBD, is absorbed and delivered to the bloodstream, where it can interact with the body’s natural systems.

When you take any product orally, its active ingredients are absorbed by the digestive system. With particular attention to CBD oil, CBD and other compounds are first broken down in the stomach before being absorbed by the small intestine and then sent via the portal vein directly to the liver.

In the liver, a group of enzymes called cytochrome P450 (CYP450) acts on CBD, which metabolizes the compounds before they are distributed through the circulatory system. During this process, a phenomenon known as first pass metabolism occurs, which breaks down CBD into over 100 different metabolites, many of which are not used by the body and are rapidly eliminated from it. This reduces the concentration of CBD and therefore reduces its bioavailability. In short, CBD reaches your bloodstream through first pass metabolism.

However, when using CBD oil with certain types of food, the loss of concentration is reduced as the food helps the CBD bypass the first pass metabolic process. Its use with a suitable meal can help ensure the absorption of a higher concentration of CBD than when taken without food.

Ideal food to use with CBD oil

The best CBD oil products include medium and long chain triglycerides, which are fatty acids. These types of fatty acids serve as a powerful binding agent for cannabinoids such as CBD and are directly metabolized into energy in the liver so that loss of CBD concentration through first pass metabolism is limited. This means your body can burn those fats and use the CBD and other cannabinoids it contains – instantly.

Recently, researchers from the University of Nottingham have supported the positive effects of using CBD with fatty acids. Another study by a separate group of researchers found that the bioavailability of a cannabinoid product was four times higher when taken after a meal.

So what food should you take with CBD? Medium chain fatty acids contain 6 to 10 carbon atoms, while long chain fatty acids are those with 14 or more carbon atoms.

They are found in most fats, oils...

In particular, we are talking about:

  • coconut oil
  • olive oil
  • soybean oil
  • sesame oil
  • fish
  • nuts
  • avocado
  • meat
  • eggs

You can even get creative and create your own food with the right fats to get you started. Alternatively, you can try a great CBD coconut oil that contains the already mentioned coconut oil.

If you decide to use CBD oil without food, we recommend that you always take it half an hour before or after a meal - in any case, always make sure that your mouth is clean, without excess residue from the previous meal. It can also reduce the bioavailability of CBD products.
