Is Water Soluble CBD Better Than Oil
Water-soluble CBD and CBD oil are different in important ways. Let’s learn about some of the ways that various substances can be used to extract CBD.
It may come as a surprise, but cannabinoids like CBD are not water soluble.
You could simmer hemp in water for hours but it wouldn’t matter. Water simply isn’t able to hold CBD or any other cannabinoids.
But cannabinoids can dissolve into several other things, oils certainly being one.
Here at Danodan, we use a completely different medium for our CBD infusions
Oils & Fats
Many companies use different oils for their CBD products, and for good reason.
Cannabinoids go into oils and fats nicely which is why there are so many CBD oils available.
Soaking hemp in butter at a simmer temperature for a few hours makes a CBD-rich, hemp-infused butter.
The same thing can be done with any plant-based oils. Think olive oil, sunflower oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, etc. They’re all great options and work well.
The only downside is that you will not have water soluble CBD if it is an oil base, since oil cannot mix into water.
MCT oil is an oil made from medium-chain triglycerides. MCT oil is very popular for CBD oil because it is usually made from coconut or palm, both of which are readily available.
Also, MCT oil is digested more easily than regular oils and is a good source of energy for our bodies.
Is water soluble CBD better than MCT oil CBD? Probably not, because MCT oil absorbs better than regular oil while also being able to extract full-spectrum hemp cannabinoids, so it will still provide the entourage effect.
But, MCT oil cannot be mixed into a drink, so that is one way that water-soluble CBD is better than MCT.
But don’t forget – with Danodan, you get both!

What Makes Danodan Hempworks Different?
At Danodan, we do things very differently. We take whole hemp flowers, grind them fresh for every batch, and slowly infuse them into organic vegetable glycerin.
Then, for some of our higher potency or functional products, we add an organic full-extract hemp oil made right here in Oregon, as well as additional organic botanical extracts.
The result is a handmade infusion that honors and celebrates the organic Oregon hemp we use in every batch.
A full-spectrum and water-soluble CBD oil unlike anything else. No industrial inputs, no isolates and distillates. Just the power of the whole flower.
