What is cannabis oil?
There are many types of cannabis oil with different ratios of the active ingredients THC and CBD. CBD oil is rich in cannabinoids and does not make you high. THC oil, on the other hand, contains THC, the ingredient known to have psychoactive effects. The concentration of CBD and THC depends on the use of the cannabis oil. CBD oil is taken as a supplement that helps to keep you fit and healthy, and lessen symptoms of certain conditions. Although illegal in most countries, some people use oils with THC recreationally as it is a healthier alternative to smoking a joint. THC also has some alleged health benefits. The majority of people who choose CBD oil for self-medication choose a product with no or very low levels of THC so that they don’t become ‘high’ through consuming the oil. On this website, you will only find totally legal CBD products.

How to prepare cannabis oil
Cannabis oil is created from the cannabis plant using an evaporation process. An oily substance is extracted from the plant and then typically diluted with alcohol or another vegetable oil. The final step is to create a specific product such as CBD oil spray, droplets, or capsules. The CBD oil products found in our shop come solely from organic, healthy plant oils.
Is CBD oil legal?
Many countries have legalised CBD oil in recent years as the medical world is slowly waking up to its potential therapeutic benefits. Recently, cannabis oil has received considerable political attention and many grassroots organisations have been working to legalise CBD oil and cannabis products. Countless experiments demonstrate time and again that active ingredients found in the cannabis plant may limit cancer cell mutations, and help against pain, nausea, neurological disorders, and many other conditions.
Because cannabis is illegal in many countries, research into the potential benefits of the cannabis plant has been slow. It has only really taken off since the turn of the millennium. However, many experts predict that the coming years will see an exponential increase in the amount of research conducted. Several pharmaceutical professionals believe that we have only seen the tip of the iceberg so far when it comes to using cannabis in medical contexts.
CBD oil is now legalised in many countries as long as it contains only trace amounts of THC. THC is the part of the cannabis plant that actually makes you high. The CBD oils sold on our website are completely legal as they only contain incredibly low amounts of THC that will not make you high.
What is cannabis oil?
As the name suggests, cannabis oil is a common term for all oils containing active ingredients from the cannabis plant. You may also have heard cannabis referred to as hemp. Cannabis oil should not be confused with hemp seed oil which is typically used for cooking and made from the seeds of the cannabis plant. Many cannabis oils are however often based on hemp seed oil. Does this sound confusing? Not to worry. The main difference between cannabis oil and hemp seed oil is the amounts of active ingredients. The seeds contain less active ingredients compared to the full-grown plant. The active ingredients taken from the cannabis plant for cannabis oil are sometimes added to hemp seed oil, and used to make bottled cannabis oil, or capsules.
Cannabis oil can also be created using coconut oil. Coconut oil is an ideal carrier for oil because of its high saturated fat content. It is also known to be a healthy oil containing important fatty acids. Its high saturated fat content helps ensure the maximum absorption rate of CBD into the body’s cells.
Cannabis oil can be found in many different versions and products. The main thing to pay attention to is the active ingredients found in the oil. Typically, oils contain either pure CBD or a mixture of THC and CBD. The latter is illegal in many countries as THC has a narcotic effect.
Cannabis oil from nature
The cannabis plant is a herb just like mint, parsley, oregano, and sage. However, unlike these plants, you may not grow cannabis in your garden. This is because cannabis is often grown for its THC rather than its CBD contents. Many people who grow cannabis want to become ‘high’ from the psychoactive properties of THC. For this reason, cannabis growers require special permission to grow cannabis plants. However, aside from the permits needed to grow the plant, cannabis is a natural plant made by mother nature.
Buy cannabis oil online
When buying cannabis online, you should check the manufacturing method and the number of active ingredients in the product as this impacts the efficacy of the oil. Harsh manufacturing methods such as products created with ethanol extraction are often less effective in treating ailments. The products sold on our online shop are created as naturally as possible to ensure they are full of active CBD ingredients. You can also be sure that our cannabis oil only contains legal levels of THC.
Buying CBD oil
What should you look for when buying CBD oil?
There are a few things you should know before you buy CBD oil from our online shop. CBD oil varies in terms of quality, cultivation and extraction methods, additives, and cannabidiol concentration. Ensure that the oil has been properly tested and analyzed in a laboratory test, and has the correct labelling.
Cultivation of hemp
The hemp plant is very robust. Chemicals, pesticides, and weed killers are not really necessary for it to grow. Research whether the hemp used in CBD oil products is organically cultivated. We recommend buying only organic CBD oil which is free from harmful chemical residues. We want you to buy the best and most effective product on the market. Buy our CBD oil here.
The quality of CBD oil
When you buy CBD oil, you should take care that it does not contain substances such as corn syrup, trans fats, GMOs, artificial additives, diluents, and preservatives. CBD oil should be 100% pure and free from harmful and unnecessary additives. Ingredients such as cannabidiol, terpenes, flavonoids, and phenols should not be lost during production as these are the substances that are beneficial to our bodies. Only a CBD oil with a high content of these ingredients can be considered a high-quality product that has a positive effect on the body even in small doses. We only sell natural CBD oil free from additives. You can find and buy our CBD oil here.
Many cannabis-based prescription drugs contain cannabinoids that are artificially manufactured in a laboratory, a common practice in the European market and among medicinal cannabis producers (you can find more information here). When you buy CBD oil, ensure you have chosen a product that is natural and correctly prepared.
The extraction process
A safe and gentle extraction process ensures high-quality CBD-rich oil. What is the extraction process exactly? Substances found in the hemp plant are dissolved with a suitable solvent. Here, toxic substances such as hexane, butane, propane, and hydrocarbons should be avoided. There are three extraction methods: CO2 extraction, ethanol extraction (alcohol), and oil extraction.
Ethanol extraction uses ethanol to dissolve the active compounds in the cannabis plant. It is an aggressive method of extraction that strips away plant waxes, which are said to have health benefits. The result is often a less pure and effective CBD oil. CO2 extraction, on the other hand, is a much more gentle method. During CO2 extraction, ingredients are preserved by using high pressure (up to 600 bar) and cold (between 30.c and 80.c) CO2. This prevents ingredients from being altered or destroyed. CO2 can be removed without leaving any residue by reducing the pressure because CO2 volatiles back to its gaseous state at room temperature.
The CO2 extraction process is both environmentally friendly and sustainable. It preserves many active molecules from the hemp plant creating an effective and pure CBD oil. The CBD oil has a chemical composition which is as close to the living hemp plant as possible. It is best to choose CBD oils created with the CO2 or oil method why you buy CBD oil. You can buy CBD oils made using CO2 extraction here. Read on for more information about oil extraction.
Common oils such as olive oil can also be used to extract cannabis oil. This extraction method is safe and natural. It gently extracts the active ingredient from the cannabis plant, ensuring the end product is as effective as possible. However, CBD oil created with this method is perishable and should be stored in a cool, dark place.
Butane or hexane extraction
Although butane and hexane are very effective in extracting cannabinoids from the cannabis plant, they can potentially remain after the extraction process and harm your lungs. It is best to avoid buying products that have been created using butane or hexane extraction.
The concentration of CBD and labelling
When buying CBD oil, you can choose different concentrations of cannabidiol. For example, there are products containing 2.5%, 5%, and 10% cannabidiol. It is not necessarily more effective to take a higher dosage as even small doses of cannabidiol can help.
The content of the cannabidiol should always be clearly labelled on the bottle. The label should show the amount of liquid, date of production, and production number which can tell you a lot about the manufacturer and subsequent quality controls.
Laboratory tests and analyses
Make sure that the manufacturer has tested their products in a laboratory before you buy CBD oil. They should be free from bacteria, pesticides, mould, solvents, and other contaminants. All oils should also be the same and not differ in ingredients. Before buying CBD oil, check that you are buying from a reputable company. We carefully vet all of our products to save you the time. You can view our range of cannabis oils here.
The use of Cannabis oil
Cannabis oil has many different uses. Some people look for an oil that purely contains THC as a healthier alternative to smoking cannabis (if that’s you, you’ve come to totally the wrong place). The vast majority of people searching for cannabis oil are only interested in the health benefits. Cannabis oil has many potential therapeutic advantages. For example, it has proven anti-inflammatory properties. It has also been strongly linked to the endocannabinoid system that, among other things, affects the immune system and the central nervous system found in all mammals. Today, cannabis oil is used by a massive range of people from all over the world and all walks of life. There are dozens of examples of people who have used cannabis oil to vastly improve their quality of life.
Many places in the world (including the USA and the EU) allow prescription drugs with extracts from the cannabis plant, or artificially produced substances that are similar to those found in cannabis. You can read more about the medicinal use of cannabis oil here.
How to take cannabis oil
The most common way to consume cannabis oil is orally through drops or capsules. Don’t worry, you don’t have to smoke cannabis oil to benefit from the effects.

People decide to use cannabis oil for a huge range of conditions and illnesses. More and more success stories are appearing all over the internet about lives transformed by CBD oil. Scientific studies are slowly catching up with the hype. Unfortunately, progress was slow starting due to the stereotypes around cannabis as a recreational drug. Many scientists are now waking up to the potential therapeutic benefits and there are plenty of studies online proving how cannabis oil can help relieve symptoms for a wide range of illnesses.
What is the active ingredient in cannabis oil?
The cannabis plant is rich in cannabinoids which are present in the endocannabinoid system in our body. We will explain more about cannabinoids below.
What are cannabinoids
You have probably already realised that the cannabis plant can be used for medicinal purposes, otherwise you wouldn’t have come to our website. The reason that many medical professionals believe the cannabis plant may have therapeutic benefits is its high concentration of cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are a chemical compound. They affect the cannabinoid receptors in human and animal cells (see more CBD oil for pets). They also interact with messenger substances in the brain. There are at least 113 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Read on for an overview of the possible effects of the most well-known cannabinoids
THC is probably the most studied cannabinoid. However, this is the predominant intoxicating ingredient found in the cannabis plant. THC is illegal in many countries because of its psychoactive effect. Nonetheless, it is said to have significant medicinal properties, such as:
- Pain reduction
- Reduction of nausea
- Relief of neural pain
- Appetite stimulation
- Reduction of muscle cramps
- Reduction of nerve damage
- Reduction of free radicals
- Support of growth of new nerve cells
- Reduction of some forms of cancer
- Reduction of glaucoma
CBC is the third most abundant cannabinoid in the cannabis plant. In some strains of cannabis, CBC is even more dominant the CBD. Just like CBD, CBC has no intoxicating effect. CBD is:
- pain relieving (when used in conjunction with THC)
- bone strengthening
- regenerating (cell function)
- supportive (blood cell function)
CBN is normally only found in low amounts in very young cannabis plants. However, during the drying and storage process of certain cannabis strains, the amount of CBN increases. CBN has an intoxicating effect similar to THC. It could have the following potential benefits:
- appetite stimulation
- antibacterial properties
- pain reduction
- anti-asthmatic properties
- muscle relaxation
- free radical reduction
- calming effects
CBG in a non-psychoactive ingredient found in the cannabis plant. This cannabinoid is found mainly during the first growing stages of the cannabis plant, which makes it difficult to obtain in larger quantities later on in the growing process. Current science says that CBD may:
- have antibacterial properties
- be anti-fungal
- alleviate pain
- act as an anti-depressant
- have antitumoral properties
- be a potential treatment for psoriasis
THCV has a low psychoactive effect compared to THC. THCV could potentially be:</p.
- appetite inducing
- a metabolism stimulate
- fat reducing for overweight people
- a diabetes treatment

The case of Alfie Dingley
Alfie Dingley is a little boy from the UK who suffers from a rate of epilepsy. He can suffer more than 100 seizures a month. Intravenous steroids, which were being used by doctors to treat him, could potentially leave him with psychosis or trigger a heart attack, so his mum took matters into her own hands. She learned about the potential anticonvulsant properties of cannabis oil and travelled to the Netherlands, where medical cannabis is legal to try to see if it could help her son. Sure enough, cannabis oil greatly improved Alfie’s quality of life and reduced his seizures. Since returning to the UK, Alfie Dingley’s Mum has worked hard towards the legalisation of cannabis oil in the UK. In June 2018, she was finally granted permission to treat her son with the only thing that dramatically improved his condition: cannabis oil.
The case of Lynn Cameron
In December 2013, Lynn Cameron heard one of the worst pieces of news it is possible to hear. Doctors told her she has just 6 – 18 months to live and diagnosed her with an incurable brain tumour. She began the difficult process of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and lengthy hospital stays. Finally, after several sessions, she decided to try cannabis oil out of pure desperation. Amazingly, four years after her diagnosis, Lynn is still alive. She is now advocating for a change of the current laws in many countries that prohibits the use of cannabis oil for medication. Since using cannabis oil, she has received the all-clear. A result she puts solely down to her decision to use cannabis oil. You can read more about her incredible story here.
