Virgin coconut oil on it’s own is one of the most amazing products for health care and beauty regimens. I use it to deep condition my hair, moisturize my skin, bake delicious cookies, wipe make up off, apply as a lip-balm, etc.
Coconut oil has tons of health benefits and uses both internally and externally. It can be applied externally to heal skin and hair from damage, or ingested to help improve memory, fight cancer, ease digestion, boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, cure UTIs, eliminated kidney infection, protect the liver and more.
Making a Great Thing Even Better
One way to make coconut oil even more useful is by infusing it with the medicinal properties of marijuana. Marijuana and coconut oil, when combined properly, create a symphony more beautiful than chocolate and peanut butter (it’s just so much sexier than PB&J, people).
Coconut oil is full of natural saturated fats. Don’t worry, these are the ones that increase the HDL (good cholesterol) in your body and help convert the LDL (bad cholesterol) into HDL, a key ingredient to a healthy heart.
The tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) in marijuana, the two cannabinoids that give marijuana it’s healing properties, are very fat soluble. The high concentration of fatty acids present in coconut oil creates a perfect adhesive for the cannabinoids, that bond with the fatty molecules.
