What Is The Difference Between THC Oil, Cannabis Oil, CBD Oil, and Marijuana Oil?

September 24, 2017 Posted by Options Cannabis Company
Oil, oil, oil! Everywhere you look these days there is cannabis oil, CBD oil, THC oil and many other varieties on store shelves. Colorado marijuana dispensaries are up to their ears in all different kinds of oils. Oils have many medical benefits, but what is the difference between hemp oil and cannabis oil? Which products are right for you?

Hemp Oil and Cannabis Oil

To begin with, it's important to understand the difference between hemp oil and cannabis oil. Both hemp and cannabis are part of the same family of plants, which is why they are often confused. However, when it comes to oils, hemp oil is actually produced by pressing hemp seeds, while cannabis oil comes from cannabis flowers. Hemp seed oil is high in fatty acids but free of cannabinoids. This means it contains some nutrients but cannot get you high. By contrast, cannabis or marijuana oil can contain cannabinoids and can be further broken down into THC oil and CBD oil.

THC and CBD Oils

If you've learned anything about marijuana nomenclature, you know that THC is the cannabinoid that is most often responsible for "getting high," while CBD oils do not have a psychoactive effect and are credited with things like pain relief. Thus, when you see marijuana oils on the shelf, they will typically denote whether they are CBD or THC oils. Some oils available for purchase will be pure THC, some will have different ratios of CBD and THC, and some will be pure CBD. As you explore marijuana dispensaries in Colorado, take a look at different oils and see what the main ingredients are. Remember that hemp seed oil is not the same as cannabis oil, and that THC and CBD produce different effects. If you are looking mainly for medical purposes, CBD will be your best bet, while THC is more about the psychoactive results and relaxation.
