Let us take a closer look at the sticky, THC-based substance that is known as cannabis oil. Scientifically, cannabis oil is a thick and sticky substance that is made from the cannabinoids THC and CBD which are extracted from cannabis plant.
Whether you are familiar with this information or not, it never hurts to take a closer look. Which is what we are doing today So what exactly are the uses of cannabis oil and how does it affect the conventional view of marijuana?
What is cannabis oil?
Cannabis oil is created by separating the resins from cannabis flowers with the use of a variety of solvent extraction methods, most commonly the butane method.
Often referred to as hash oil, shatter, wax and dabs, cannabis oil is the most powerful and concentrated form of cannabis, and for that, it is the most popular.
Even though they all share the same ingredient, the given nicknames help differentiate between the consistency and texture that is obtained from various processes. A good example of this is shatter and wax.
While shatter is known for its clear amber-glass transparency, wax takes a softer opaquer form. While both may derive from cannabis oil, unlike shatter, wax is created from agitation, or regularly disrupting molecules that eventually form a more solid, non-transparent oil.
Due to the strong powers and popularity of the oil, it is highly recommended to be careful of where you purchase cannabis oil extract.
Even though your local drug dealer might be more convenient, he is probably not the best decision. Depending on the producer, the oil could have other contaminants and little to no THC or CBD.
