Hi James, thanks for your question. Cannabis oil can definitely help you out, tinctures or edible oils are a great and healthy way to consume, much more effective than smoking and a lot easier to calculate a regular dose. If you have anxiety issues then I would strongly recommend finding an oil with a high percentage of CBD (A ratio of at least 1:1 of CBD to THC) because it counteracts any possible anxiety caused by THC. Pure CBD will definitely help, but it’s better to have at least a small percentage of THC in the mix as well, it will greatly potentiate the CBD but also to offer a full spectrum medicine with what we know as an “entourage effect” or a synergy between the various active ingredients: cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. I hope that helps, if you have any more question feel free to ask. All the best!

Nowadays we can find on the market several cannabis based products under different names, and this variety of choices can lead to confusion. This confusion is mainly focused on the different forms of oil that we are going to present in this post.

Hi Sharky, glad the reply was of some help. Another option to make the tincture burn less is to reduce it down a bit and mix it with some vegetable glycerine, I’ve done this in the past. However it can be a bit of a pain to blend it properly as it tends to separate. I never tried using heat to blend them though, that might work better. Otherwise just shake really well before using. It certainly tastes better than pure alcohol tincture anyway. And yes, you can absolutely evaporate the alcohol off from the tincture and use it to add to a carrier oil if it’s undiluted & unflavoured. All the best!

Thus, a cannabinoid extraction from hemp flowers can be made to concentrate its active principles, especially CBD. Generally, it is diluted in any vegetable oil (olive, coconut . ) to facilitate both dosage and use. Since CBD cannabis oil contains no THC traces (less than 0.2%), its sale and use are legal in most countries. This type of oil is suitable for medicinal use because it has no recreational, psychoactive effect.

The resulting mixture is then subsequently processed and eventually integrated into other products.

Cannabis oils can have different absorption rates depending on how they’re consumed and how they’re made. Cannabis oils offer a lot of flexibility with dose titration because you can increase or decrease by single drops of oil. There is also a chance of some (but definitely not all) of the oil being absorbed under the tongue, which is why many patients favor sublingual absorption. But it’s important to remember that some of these sublingual doses are going to be swallowed and the effects of the cannabis can be delayed by several hours.

2. Lipid-based extractions

There are several different ways a cannabis oil can be processed. These include:

Ethanol based extractions are often more cost effective than other extraction methods, and they are usually touted as full spectrum extracts. In fact, ethanol (or technically isopropyl alcohol) is the extraction method used to make crude oils like Rick Simpson Oil (RSO).

THC oil is oil made from THC-rich cannabis flowers. It can be made in several different ways and infused into several different types of carrier oils. You can buy (and make) full spectrum THC oils as well.
