We receive many questions about the types of Cannabis oil, marijuana oil, THC oil, hemp oil, and CBD oil. What does the name stand for and what is in the oil? The biggest difference is the concentration of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol ) in the oils. Whereas hemp and CBD oil do not contain THC, the other oils do contain measurable levels of THC (the active substance that can produce a high).
What are Cannabis Oils?
Cannabis oils or concentrated extracts are obtained by the extraction of cannabinoids from the dried flowers (cannabis flowers) of the cannabis plant. The purpose of producing cannabis oil is to make cannabinoids and other components (i.e. terpenes), available in a highly concentrated form.
Oils are typically prepared for oral sublingual administration. They have become increasingly popular in recent years. This is because they are easy to use, compared to inhalation by vaporization. Prescribers and pharmacists are more familiar with oral dosing, which also promotes their use.
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol ) and CBD (Cannabidiol) are the two best-known cannabinoids that recently received a lot of attention as medical application. However, it is estimated there are more than 80 cannabinoids present in hemp and marijuana plants.
