Oil that is extracted from Cannabis by separating resins from the plants flowers, using a solvent extraction process.
So what is in Cannabis Oil? There are several Cannabinoids commonly known as THC, which stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol. THC is the Psychoactive component that leaves you feeling “high”. The medical component of cannabis is CBD or Cannabidiol. CBD is commonly known for helping with pain, and seizures. CBD Hemp oil can be purchased and sold legally in the USA as it is not psychoactive.
So how do Cannabinoids affect us, body and mind?
Cannaboids in Marijuana trigger other cannaboids, we have endogenous cannabinoids that occur naturally in our bodies. Our natural cannabinoids also interact with synthetic cannabinoids that are created in labs.
Cannabis oil is proven to improve these conditions:
Acne, ADD/ADHD, Addiction, AIDS, ALS, Alzheimer’s Disease, Anorexia, Antibiotic Resistance, Anxiety, Atherosclerosis, Arthritis, Asthma, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Cancer, Colitis/Crohn’s, Depression, Diabetes, Endocrine Disorders, Epilepsy/Seizure, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Heart Disease, Huntington’s Disease, Inflammatory Disorders, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Kidney Disease, Liver Disease, Metabolic Syndrome, Migraines, Mood Disorders, Motion Sickness, Multiple Sclerosis, Nausea, Neurodegeneration, Neuropathic Pain, Obesity, OCD, Osteoporosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Prion/Mad Cow Disease, PTSD, Rheumatism, Schizophrenia, Sickle Cell Anemia, Skin Conditions, Sleep Disorders, Spinal Cord Injury, and Stress Stroke/TBI.
It’s sad that there is no such thing as “too much CBD,” but there is such a thing as too little to feel the effects. A normally dosage would be from 2-3 mg, up to 100 mg, 200 mg, or 500 mg to 1000 mg would be the absolute top.
Most people who self medicate take about 2-3 mg a day to start, and for more harsh ailments, they work their way up to higher doses.
Does it work?
The majority of patients that use cannabis oil for medical reasons have reported that it does indeed help with a lot of different ailments.
