Its benefits include strengthening your immune system and improving digestion, helping you burn more fat, reduce hunger, and contribute to reducing your risk of cancer. That’s the coconut magic.

Also, its solid-state allows oil to be easily stored through gelatin capsules, a very popular and efficient way for cannabinoid distribution. Gelatin oil capsules are so easy to make at home that the ingredients can be purchased at almost any pharmacy or the internet.
