What Exactly IS Cannabis Oil?
Cannabis oil is a panacea – a universal cure, cure-all, elixir and wonder drug. It has been used for centuries by people around the world to cure all kinds of ailments and to maintain the perfect state of balance in health. Nearly 100 cannabinoids or chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant (flowers) have unique qualities. They are able to interact with endocannabinoids in the body and brain therefore helping to regulate the immune system and the fight against disease.
- Cannabidiol (CBD) – this common cannabinoid does not make you high and is a wonderful relaxant and anti-inflammatory. It is only recently that CBD has been recognised as a medical therapy that can treat myriad conditions from insomnia to cancer.
- Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the main chemical compound in the cannabis plant which is psychoactive therefore makes you high. It can ease pain, inflammation and treats many mental illnesses if used wisely and in tandem with CBD.
- Cannabinol (CBN) – like CBD it is a wonderful panacea, mostly promoting sleep and relaxation, and does not make you high. CBN comes from cannabigerolic corrosive (CBGA) in cannabis. The weed plant creates proteins changing over CBGA to one of three noteworthy cannabinoids: CBCA: cannabichromene carboxylic corrosive; CBDA: cannabidiol carboxylic corrosive (CBDA); THCA: tetrahydrocannabinol carboxylic corrosive.
- Tetrahydrocannabinol acid (THCA) – a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in raw and live cannabis. In its properties it is closer to CBD than THC. As the cannabis flower dries, THCA slowly converts to THC. Heat expedites this conversion in a process which is what happens when someone smokes the plant. It is a great anti-inflammatory, protector of nerves and stops nausea and vomiting.
Does CBD Really Work?
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the principal psychoactive part of the cannabis plant. Together with the CBD (Cannabidiol), a non-psychoactive component of the marijuana plant, they make the best combination cannabis oil to fight cancer. These are the most popular and powerful ingredients in the Cannabis, and most widely used for medical purposes.

The list goes on and on – cannabis oil can ease the symptoms of autoimmune diseases, inflammation and trauma.

People have been curing their illnesses for thousands of years with this plant and now it can be useful again.
Live Science warns that a wealth of marketing material, blogs and anecdotes claim that cannabis oils can cure whatever ails you, even cancer. But the limited research doesn’t suggest that cannabis oil should take the place of conventional medication, except for in two very rare forms of epilepsy (and even then, it’s recommended only as a last-resort treatment). And, experts caution that because cannabis oil and other cannabis-based products are not regulated or tested for safety by the government or any third-party agency, it’s difficult for consumers to know exactly what they’re getting.
