What is cannabis oil?

Cannabis oils are extracts from cannabis plants. The two main active substances in cannabis plants are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Oil extracted from hemp plants tends to contain a high proportion of CBD, while oil from marijuana plants tends to contain a greater concentration of THC.

THC produces the high usually sought by recreational cannabis oil users, while cannabis oils destined for medical use can also contain CBD. Some medical users prefer a greater proportion of CBD to THC, while others prefer CBD-only cannabis oils. In commercially-produced cannabis oils, the concentrations of CBD and THC are well-controlled, which facilitates the calculation of doses.

Research has shown that CBD is an anticonvulsant and some evidence shows that THC is as well. Clinical trials in the US and Europe have revealed that medical-grade CBD can treat two severe forms of childhood epilepsy known as Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, which often fail to improve when treated with existing epilepsy medication.
