Cannabis Oil – The Whys and Hows

There is much information as well as misinformation about cannabis oil. I would like to dispell any misinformation and provide you will the truths that I have come to know. The cannabis oil that I am referring to is an extract from cannabis buds. The oil is achieved by washing the resin from the plant cannabis oilmaterial. Cannabis oil is remaining after the solvent used to wash the material is boiled away.

I found a lot of information on oils produced from cannabis and hemp while doing my research. Most dispensaries have an oil, some even carry  diluted versions called tinctures. I found a video called “Run from the Cure” by Rick Simpson. This video is an eye opener and is full of information. His personal testimonies as well as from other people who used his version of extract. 

I have heard many opinions about cannabis oil. You may have heard a fair share of them yourself. The truth that I have come to understand is that the oil if made correctly is better for ingesting than smoking. The oil can also be used in vaporizers. So for those who need to use cannabis for respiratory issues, there are no carcinogens from the burning carbon material. The key is to wash the cannabis material completely. Remove the solvent, and never allow the solvent/oil mixture to get too hot.

Why do it yourself

Some concerns may be not knowing what was used to make the oil. Also the unknown of what solvent was used to make the oil. I was even cautioned about the possibility of overdosing. First of all let start by saying, that if you make your own oil you have ruled out the first two concerns. You know what plant material and what solvent was used. To make the oil for yourself is a simple process and you probably already have the tools needed. I am not a Doctor so I am in no position to tell you what to do or how much to take. I can only say that if a smaller amount is taken to start a couple of times a day the body tends to build up a tolerance to it. That is not to confuse tolerance with resistance. The endocannabinoid receptors already in your body will get used to absorbing the cannabinoids in the oil.

I have included a video for you. It is a little over 20 minutes in length but will give you some verification to this post. I hope that this information will give you some help in your journey. If you should have any questions unanswered, please comment below and I will respond usually within 24 hours. Also, I would appreciate any comments or suggestions. If your state is still not allowing medicinal cannabis, contact your state legislators. We all need to keep on our federal congressional legislators. Cannabis is God given and not man made!
