Coconut oil is arguably the best fat to infuse with cannabinoids due to its high saturated fat content. In addition, coconut oil is a healthier fat than canola and butter, as it boasts a fairly wide list of potential health benefits. Therefore, you frequently find it in edibles. Since infused coconut oil remains solid at room temperature, it’s also widely used for topicals and to fill gelatin capsules. The one thing worth considering is that it does taste like coconut, and you’ll need to embrace that as part of a recipe’s taste palate if you use it.
