Cannabis Oil is produced from the cannabis plants. The main content of cannabis plants is THC, which is contained in the sticky glands called trichomes. Cannabis is used in a plenty of products like foods, oils and soaps.
The difference between CBD oils and cannabis oils lie in their composition. CBD oils have extremely high amounts of CBD but cannabis oil have equal amounts of CBD and THC. THC is the most abundant cannabinoid component found in cannabis plants and is known to possess psychoactive effects on the brain. CBD is the second most cannabinoid component found in cannabis plants. It has no psychoactive effects.
The selection of raw materials
Going for the right kind of cannabis strain for the manufacture of Cannabis Oil is the most crucial part. The plant should never be treated with any sort of chemical pesticides or fertilizers because that would contaminate the product obtained. Next is the source of water for these plants. It should be a natural source.
The role of cannabis oil in combating cancer
The most striking medicinal feature of cannabis oil is that it works like a miracle in fighting cancer and its effects. There is a definite reason behind this. The cancer cells contain certain cannabinoid binding receptors.
On consumption of THC, THC binds to these receptors and this association of the receptor and THC sends signals to the cancer cells to destroy themselves. This takes place by increasing the level of ceramide synthesis. In this way, the proliferation of cancer cells is inhibited.
Healthy cells do not bind to THC and thus there is no increase in ceramide synthesis as well. Thus the cancer cells die without affecting the cells which are healthy. Cancer is thus treated in an effective and painless manner.
Importance of THC and CBD in cannabis oil:
CBD has no psychoactive effect unlike THC, which causes mind altering effects on the brain. CBD in turn, reduces the effects of THC or smoking. In cannabis oil, there is an equal proportion of THC and CBD and this ensures the action of THC in inhibiting cancer cell growth accompanied by the action of CBD in blocking psychoactive effects of THC.
Thus, consuming Cannabis Oil does not cause any side effect as CBD and THC work their best to make you feel healthy and not sick.
In addition to the treatment of cancer, some of the other advantages of cannabis oil are:
- Relieving stress and depression.
