Cannabis oil, the sacred element of the cannabis plant
The different types of cannabis oil
An internet search about cannabis oil will teach you that much of the available information is contradictory. Perhaps you have even given up hope, or perhaps you are fed up with all the oils that are being described. We understand this, and therefore will provide some clarity in this article about the different cannabis oils out there.
What is cannabis oil?
Cannabis oil is made from cannabis—a plant containing 104 active ingredients, two of which being cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Cannabis can broadly be divided into two species: the hemp plant and the marijuana plant. CBD is extracted from hemp, a plant that only contains trace amounts of THC. THC is extracted from a different plant, sometimes referred to as the marijuana plant. In short, then, there is both THC oil and CBD oil. Both are cannabis oils because they are extracted from the plant called cannabis, but they have different properties because they are extracted from different types of cannabis plants.
What is THC/cannabis oil?
Cannabis oil is extracted from the cannabis plant. Cannabis oil, sometimes also called THC oil, contains a high concentration of THC, and a low concentration of CBD. THC oil is not legal in Europe due to the psychoactive properties of THC. Rick-Simpson oil is a well-known cannabis oil, which has become very popular. However, Simpson oil cannot be bought legally in Europe either.
What is CBD/hemp oil?
CBD oil is made from hemp. This oil is therefore also referred to as hemp oil. This hemp or CBD oil is completely legal in Europe because it contains very low concentrations of THC or even no THC at all.
The uses of medicinal cannabis
Studies of medicinal-cannabis oil are currently in full swing. There are more studies done of CBD than of THC, because THC is not a legal substance, and it is, therefore, harder to get these studies subsidized.
The wonderful thing about CBD is that it has no known side effects, meaning that almost everyone can use this substance without worries. In some cases, the use of CBD is not recommended:
