What is Cannabis Oil?

Cannabis oil is the thick, sticky ingredient that is removed from the cannabis leaves and plants. This resin contains numerous chemical compounds called cannabinoids.

Most people use or know about the two main cannabinoids:

  • Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – a psychoactive compound prevalent in cannabis that makes the user high; mostly illegal as it is a controlled “drug” in most countries.
  • Cannabidiol (CBD) – a non-psychoactive, second most abundant compound found in cannabis, with few side effects; mostly legal, especially as medical cannabis.

Cannabis oil is also called dagga olie, hemp oil, cbd oil and weed oil.

Medical Cannabis Oil

Many different cannabis strains are jointly called medical cannabis. A cannabis plant includes more than 400 different chemicals, of which about 70 are cannabinoids. Many scientists have concluded that it is the ratio of CBD to THC that determines how therapeutic the medical cannabis oil will be, as opposed to being too psychoactive. There should be more CBD than THC for medicinal purposes as the CBD mitigates the psychoactive qualities of the THC, rendering a potent medication that can successfully treat many disorders.
