Cannabis oil is an often overlooked, but very effective, product that has gotten a bad reputation simply for being associated with the marijuana plant. In reality, marijuana is part of the Cannabis plant family, which includes both hemp and marijuana. The cannabis oil Vancouver residents buy can be derived from either hemp OR marijuana plants and still bear the label Cannabis oil.
Where Does Cannabis Oil Come From?
Cannabis oil is extracted from the flowers, buds, seeds, stalks, and/or leaves of cannabis plants through steam distillation or seed pressing, depending on the type of oil being created. Marijuana-based oils are extracted from high-quality buds whereas hemp oil is obtained by pressing the seeds and stalks of the plant.
In general, hemp-derived cannabis oil will contain lower THC levels than cannabis oil made from marijuana plants. Both types of cannabis oils will also contain other compounds like CBD, however, the concentrations of CBD and THC will vary depending on which plant and plant strain or variety were used to make the oil.
What Kinds Of Effects Can I Expect From Cannabis Oil?
Hemp-derived cannabis oil is high in CBD and low in THC. It produces feelings of relaxation and calm and is often described as soothing and particular good at moisturizing dry or problem skin. It is often recommended for therapeutic or medicinal use since it does not generally create any psychotropic effects in people.
Marijuana-derived cannabis oil, on the other hand, is high in THC and low in CBD. It is best for recreational use as it can create the psychoactive effects associated with THC. Despite this effect, marijuana-derived cannabis oil can help combat nausea, stimulate the appetite, and ease the pain in cancer patients or the terminally ill.
