The Importance of Lipids and Fats in Cannabis Consumption

Thursday, Mar 11, 2021

One of the most unique aspects of solventless products is that they retain the lipids and fats that naturally exist within cannabis plants’ trichomes. Although some believe these organic compounds aren’t essential, the entourage effect that is provided by a strain’s full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes is likely influenced by the presence of lipids and fats.

For example, the lipids and fats found in rosin play a key role in bonding it with the organic coconut oil used in our cooking process. Once bonded with the lipids and fats in coconut oil, the cannabinoid content found in our gummies can easily cross the blood-brain barrier. This means that they can be absorbed by the body faster! The bonding of lipids and fats with cannabinoids is likely why the effects produced by our gummies can be felt relatively quickly.

On top of that, lipids and fats can play another role in digesting edibles. When consuming our gummies it helps to have eaten other food already! Having lipids and fats from the food you’ve ingested already in your system will speed up how quickly your body processes cannabinoids, which allows a cultivar’s effects to hit faster than if your stomach is empty. Although some people view naturally-occurring lipids and fats as unwanted in cannabis products, they can play a big role in digesting cannabis.
