The Superfoods of ONDA
(+ bulletproof-styled coffee recipe)
By Erin Willis
We all know that CBD is filled with health benefits, but what about the other ingredients found in ONDA products? The coconut oil, the MCT’s, chlorophyll, and various other polyphenols attached to this yummy cannabinoid are filled with healthful benefits.
As you may know, ONDA carries two main product types- CBD infused coconut oil capsules and coconut derived MCT oil tinctures. We chose these oils as our CBD carriers because the bioactive properties of cannabis are fat soluble and coconut oil is both nutritious and has a high smoking point, making for the perfect CBD carrier in the heated process of decarboxylation and the lipid extraction of our organically grown hemp.
What’s in the capsules that make them super?
Starting with the ONDA capsules, they have just two ingredients- organic coconut oil and whole plant hemp. Coconut oil is considered a multi-versatile superfood and topical, as you can use it as a product for just about anything. For generations, tropical cultures have been using the coconut oil topically for hair, skin, and mouth, as a lubricant, and as a nutritional, energy-boosting food and supplement.
Adding coconut oil into your diet and health regime can help you reenergize, may satiate your hunger because of its high-fat caloric content, and may help protect you against harmful bacteria and fungi.
Because coconut oil is so versatile, you can add your capsules to just about any food or drink and can even use it topically!
Now for the MCT’s in our tinctures…
Coconut oil contains medium-length chains of fat called triglycerides, or medium-chained triglycerides (MCT’s). This is where our other lovely product comes into play, our MCT oil-based tinctures. Coconut-derived MCT oil is fractured coconut oil that is liquid at room temperature, making for the perfect carrier for the fat-soluble properties of hemp. This unique fatty chain also packs health benefits.
MCT oil has been shown to enhance energy production and fat oxidation, boost exercise performance, and are known for their antimicrobial properties, making MCT oil strong enough to use topically and orally for added benefits as a gut health supplement.
The other star ingredient is in ONDA’s CBD products? Whole plant hemp!
Whole plant hemp means that the whole plant was used in ONDA’s patented lipid extraction process, including those leafy greens and juicy flowers. This means the luscious green chlorophyll, the array of terpenes and cannabinoids, and the additional polyphenols, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants are still present in our products. We like to think of our extract as equivalent to a glass of orange juice, as we get out all we can from the original plant.
The word “superfood” may be a buzzword, but it still means these ingredients are functional and can have nutritious benefits beyond the cannabidiol (CBD) it is so wonderfully known for.
To celebrate healthy fats and whole plant hemp, here is our favorite Bulletproof-inspired coffee recipe. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!
ONDA Stabilizing CBD Coffee
- 1 (or more) cup freshly brewed coffee
- 1 to 2 ONDA capsules, removed from the capsule (10, 25, or 50 mg CBD will work)
- 1-2 droppers of ONDA tincture (600 or 3000 mg CBD will work)
- 1 tsp – 1 tbsp grass-fed unsalted ghee (clarified butter)
- Blend ingredients in a high-speed blender for 10 seconds. It should end up looking like a frothy latte.
- Pour in a mug, top with cinnamon, and have yourself a Buena ONDA day!
