Learn About Oils

Cannabis oils are extracts from cannabis plants. Unprocessed, they contain the same 100 or so active ingredients as the plants, but the balance of compounds depends on the specific plant.

Strains of both cannabis sativa and cannabis indica produce what’s popularly referred to as “marijuana”, which is used for recreational and medicinal purposes.

Cannabis oils are ingested, so there is no need to inhale the medication in the form of smoke or vapor. Cannabis oils can be ingested, or droplets can be absorbed under the tongue. For a consistent effect, consumers should take the same or similar dosage daily and in the same manner.

Store cannabis oils in a cool and dark place, in a safe location and out of the reach of children.

What does ‘Cannabis Oil’ refer to?

Cannabis is the name of the plant’s genus. Its two major species, among others, are Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica.

Strains of both Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica produce what’s popularly referred to as “marijuana”, which is used for recreational and medicinal purposes.

Hemp, another misunderstood term, is a strain of Cannabis Sativa and it is used for industrial purposes like textiles.

While marijuana and hemp both come from the same species, they’re different strains bred for different reasons. In short: They are not the same thing. Their concentration of specific cannabinoids is different as well.

Specifically, hemp’s concentration of CBD is high while its concentration of THC is quite low. This hasn’t stopped the two from being linked in the popular imagination so much so that hemp was viewed as a “pariah plant” for decades.

The key takeaway here is that the concentration of THC in hemp is low. The acceptable level of THC in hemp is about one percent while marijuana has at least three percent.
