What Is Cannabis Oil?
Cannabis oil is produced by a chemical extraction process that results in the formation of a concentrate rich in certain cannabinoids like C.B.D. or T.H.C. The extracts rich in these cannabinoids are then mixed with some carrier oil, such as MCT oil.
Cannabis oil can be extracted in two methods; extracted from the hemp plant or extracted from the cannabis plant. Cannabis oil obtained from the hemp plant usually contains high amounts of medicinal C.B.D. cannabinoids, whereas oil obtained from cannabis plants has high levels of T.H.C. Usually, hemp-derived cannabis oil is used for therapeutic purposes, whereas cannabis-derived distillate oil is used for recreational activities.
Therefore, if your aim is the therapeutic benefits of C.B.D. it would be best to use hemp-derived cannabis oil.
How to Use Cannabis Oil?
When you think about the cannabis plant, the first thing that comes to your mind is smoking its dry flowers in a glass spoon pipe or in a joint. But in reality, smoking is not the only way to benefit from the medicinal properties of cannabis.
If you are interested in consuming cannabis oil via the oral route, that may be the optimal way how to use cannabis oil in capsules or gummies. Capsules and gummies make it easy to consume as you don't have to worry about overdose.

Cannabis oil can also be used topically as salves, balms, creams, patches, and oil. Cannabis oil is a perfect choice to moisturize your skin. You can also use cannabis oil to relieve the local pain and inflammation due to any strain or minor injury. Topical products can be used by massaging the affected area.
Topical use is not an effective method than oral use as the skin has poor permeability, so a large amount of cream and balm is required to show effects.
Cannabis oil can also be used sublingually in the form of tinctures. This method is the fastest method of delivering oil in the blood. These products come with droppers, and you have to place a few drops of oil under your tongue and hold it there for a minute.
