A lot of people ask “what is cannabis oil?” Cannabis oil is extracted from cannabis plants, which are often called hemp or marijuana. It is a highly concentrated essential oil, and it is much more potent than Cannabis flowers which are typically smoked. The oil that is extracted from the plants may contain over 100 active ingredients, which are known to have many health benefits. There are many different grades of cannabis oil. Some companies, like King Harvest Wellness, only use organic grade extractions. If this is important to you always be sure to read product labels.
Will Cannabis Oil Make You High?
This is a common misconception. Cannabis is entirely different from THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, that is the compound that is known to produce a psychoactive effect. Cannabis on its own will not make you high.
How Do You Use Cannabis Oil?
One of the reasons Cannabis oil is so popular is because of its versatility. It is often combined with other types of oils and turned into a salve that can be applied topically. It can also be turned into a tincture which you can place directly under your tongue for quick absorption. Oils can also be vaporized into your lungs. This is referred to as vaping and it has become very popular recently.
