So I guess what I really need to know is which MCT (8, 10, or 12) is most likely to be processed by the liver?
I came upon a few grams of decarbed distillate, I want to infuse it into MCT oil (think liquid coconut oil) for encapsulating or use with a blunt syringe to measure exact ml.
Do I need heat, or would I be able to just blend it with lecithin and the distillate to get the same effect?
Now it’s just a matter of determining:
Sorry for threadjacking but I’m new to using MCT oil and have only found a few threads mentioning it here so far. Those seem to be about dissolving concentrate into MCT oil.
I think I’ll ease into this transition from using coconut oil to using c8 + c10 specific MCT oil 100% derived from coconuts. First I’ll try using an MCT oil 100% produced from coconut oil that is a combo of C8, C10, and C12. I’d like to compare that to my usual 100% coconut oil baseline. I’m going to try this one.
Choosing between options like 100% C6, 100% C8, 100% C10, 100% C12, or a mixed MCT. If mixed, it’s a matter of deciding if the shorter C’s should be favored over the longer C’s (and if Lauric Acid, C12 should be avoided completely).

That leads to the next question though. Choosing the best type of 100% Coconut oil based MCT oil.
2. Will this MCT oil work better for oral ingestion than standard coconut oil?
I tried 5ml of oil mixed in to a drink of about 250ml. Regardless of any separation of the oil in the drink, I infested it all and should have felt something with an hour but didn’t really get any sensation at all.
I am trying to dissolve 96% distillate in to MCT oil, however I’m not getting the desired effect. I’m not sure if mixture calculation correct or if my method is correct.
The calculator I used output that I should get 15mg thc per teaspoon (5ml).
First attempt: I double boiled water and then placed the MCT oil(1cup) in a Pyrex mixing cup and slowly heated it the oil to about 140F. I then slowly mixed in 1g of 96% THC distillate and stirred intermittently for about 1hr.
Second attempt: I reheated the oil from the previous day and mixed in another 1g of 96% distillate. Which by rights should double my mixture and give me roughly 30mg of THC per teaspoon. Once again I barely got any sensation.
