Buying cannabis oil
Several studies have shown that cannabis oil has got a medical effect on diseases or disorders such as cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, ALS, inflammation, arthritis, diabetes, epilepsy, psoriasis, fears, stress and insomnia. Other names for cannabis oil are weedoil, hemp oil, THC oil, Rick Simpson oil or its abbreviation RSO. An often asked question is whether cannabis oil is legal. Cannabis oil is subject to the opium law because of its high THC content, CBD oil doesn’t contain THC and is therefore legal.
Cannabis, a different name for hemp, consists of many active substances. These substances are called cannabinoids and have beneficial effects. Cannabinoids are neurotransmitters which enable body cells to communicate better with each other. The best known cannabinoids are THC and CBD. THC has a psychoactive effect and is therefore subject to the opium law. Both substances have medicinal properties and thus a lot of studies are conducted to research THC and CBD. Previous studies showed that cannabinoids reinforce each other, which makes them even more effective.
Cannabinoids can not only be found in a cannabis plant, also our own body produces them. This is called the endocannabinoid system, endo means body’s own. The endocannabinoid system has been discovered by scientists not long ago. Since its discovery 15 years ago it’s been researched more and more. Until now studies have shown that the endocannabinoid system plays a significant role in several physical processes such as our sleep-wake cycle, our immune system and our digestive system. Some scientists claim that almost all chronic diseases are caused by a malfunctioning endocannabinoid system.
The endocannabinoid system consists of 10 different cannabinoids of which CBD is the best known. CBD provides a painkilling effect, inhibits the growth of cancer cells and tumors, creates a relaxing and calming feeling, lowers anxiety and acts anti-inflammatory. Each person is different and also the amount of endocannabinoids in every human body is different. Therefore the different cannabinoids don’t work the same in each body.

Usage of cannabis oil
The composition of cannabinoids works differently for each person. To find out which combination works best for you and which amount you should use is a matter of testing. The ratio of THC and CBD in each type kind of cannabis can differ enormously. If a person suffers from epilepsy, a high content of CBD is needed to reduce his seizures. To fight cancer somebody needs a high content of THC.
Cannabis oil and cancer
Rick Simpson has treated people with melanoma and glaucoma as well as several people with cancer. Rick Simpson oil would have a healing effect, reduce the growth of cancer cells and alleviate the symptoms of cancer. There are no official studies to prove this however.
Where can I buy cannabis oil?
Since cannabis oil is illegal in most of the EU, you would have to buy it on the black market. However, when doing so, you will never know what you will get. You will not know the ingredients of the oil nor if it contains any THC at all.
Therefore your best bet is to buy CBD oil. This contains all the benefits from cannabis, but since the THC is filtered out, you don’t have the side effects. You can buy CBD oil legally online.
