Cannabis oil – All you need to know about this product with THC
The terms cannabis oil and CBD oil are often used interchangeably, as an internet search will illustrate. However, they are in fact different oils with different properties. In this article, we will clarify what these different properties are.
Cannabis oil and CBD oil: the differences
CBD oil contains a high concentration of CBD—an abbreviation for cannabidiol. Cannabis oil, sometimes called THC oil, contains a high concentration of THC—an abbreviation for tetrahydrocannabinol. Both CBD and THC are extracted from the plant called cannabis and are active ingredients. However, THC is a psychoactive constituent, causing a feeling of high when it is used. CBD is non-psychoactive, and will therefore not cause a high. Cannabis oil, usually, contains between 1% and 8% of THC, while CBD oil only contains trace amounts of THC (less than 0,05%). Hence, CBD oil is legal under the (Dutch) Opium Law and can be sold legally in The Netherlands and in almost all EU countries. This is not the case for THC oil, due to the high THC content.
There is no single correct dose of CBD, as it varies per individual. It is also dependent on the percentage of CBD in the oil you are using. Note that most products have the necessary information and instructions included in the package. We advise always to start with a low dosage and to experiment with that dose if necessary.
How to take CBD?
The oil and paste can be taken in several ways. Usually, they are taken by mouth undiluted. Place the correct dose under the tongue, after which it will be absorbed by the body in about half an hour. Some people find the taste of these two products slightly bitter, in which case they can be mixed with food. Another option is to take CBD capsules: ideal if you travel a lot.
