Why is this made in MCT and not alcohol/Tincture?

MCTs do an impressive job at protecting all of the CBD from being completely broken down by the digestive system before reaching the bloodstream. Since CBD is a fat-soluble compound, it is most efficient and best absorbed by your body when taken along with saturated fats, like MCTs (fractionated coconut oil). The composition of the tincture also requires the use of carrier oil.

Yes. Diabetes is an inflammatory condition and CBD does have anti-inflammatory properties. In research, CBD has shown promise in reducing insulin resistance and moderating blood sugars for people with type 2 not taking insulin.

I have thyroid, can I use this safely?

Yes, it can be taken, however, if a few hours are allotted between the medications, there seemed to be no negative side effects for most people. Of course, this depends on the dosage and frequency of use for both thyroid meds and the CBD oil. The studies on cannabinoids and thyroid health are limited, but so far their findings do suggest that CBD may normalise thyroid conditions.
