If you have ever tried CBD oil by mouth, did you experience a pleasant taste, or did you notice an oily residue, dirt taste, or plant-like taste? The way your CBD oil tastes and feels depends partly on the type of oil base used. We totally understand the allure of purchasing a CBD oil-based on popular brand or cheap price point. But when you get down to the facts, the oil type is an important factor to take into account when deciding which CBD oil to buy.
What is Rice Bran Oil?
Rice Bran Oil is a very light, nearly taste-free oil made by extracting the oil from the bran of rice. The bran is an outer layer of skin enclosing the rice. The taste is very, mild earthy flavor. The oil is rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and free of trans-fats making it heart-friendly. It also has a less oily consistency than most other oils on the market, leaving less residue on the tongue when taken by mouth. This is why it is one of the main ingredients found in our collection of CBD Oil Tinctures.
Where Does RBO Come From?
While RBO is derived from all over the world, it commonly comes from China, India, and Japan and other places where agricultural rice cultivation is prevalent.
What Are the Health Benefits of RBO?
Rice Bran Oil is a good source of Vitamin E and it is gluten-free. One tablespoon of rice bran oil contains 29% of the daily value for vitamin E, a fat-soluable vitamin involved in the protection from the damage caused by free radicals. Our bodies also use vitamin E to fend off diseases and boost our immunities.
Benefits For Hair, Skin, and Nails
Due to its array of fatty acids, rice bran oil can promote skin hydration, reduce pigmentation, even out skin tones, and can diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This magical oil can keep your hair follicles healthy by massaging it into hair and scalp prior to wash. When used on a regular basis, RBO can also help repair dry nails and softens cuticles and can even help nails grow longer.
Taking Rice Bran Oil Orally
Foods that are cooked with RBO absorb 20% less oil than other oils, resulting in less calories and have better taste and enhanced flavor profiles. When taken sublingually, as in the case with our CBD Tinctures, RBO is nearly fully absorbed in the bloodstream.
