If you’re like most people, you have probably heard about CBD and THC but aren’t quite sure what the difference is between the two. CBD and THC are both cannabinoids, but they have very different effects on the body. CBD is known for its therapeutic properties, while THC is known for its psychoactive effects. In this blog post, we will discuss the differences between CBD and THC oils. We will also discuss the potential benefits of vaping CBD and THC oil.

What is CBD oil?

CBD oil is an extract of the cannabis plant that contains CBD. CBD is an acronym for the cannabinoid: Cannabidiol. It is a compound found in the Cannabis Sativa L & hemp plant. CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant and then diluting it with a carrier oil, such as coconut oil or hemp seed oil. Here at Canavape® we only use pure isolated CBD to ensure that our products are THC free.

What is THC oil?

THC oil is a type of cannabis oil that contains THC, aka Delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol which is the psychoactive compound that is associated with getting high. THC oil is made by extracting THC from cannabis flowers or leaves. It’s then usually diluted with a carrier oil like coconut or hemp seed oil. THC is legal in most of the USA for both medical and recreational use. Both CBD & THC products are legal for medicinal use in the UK on a prescription basis for chronic conditions such as pain, anxiety and epilepsy.

What are the differences between CBD and THC oils?

The main difference between CBD and THC oils is that CBD oil does not get you high, while THC oil does. CBD oil is also known for its therapeutic properties, while THC oil is known for its psychoactive effects in addition to powerful medical properties. CBD oil is used to treat a variety of conditions, such as anxiety, pain, and insomnia when prescribed by a doctor in the UK. THC oil is also used illegally for recreational purposes.

What are the benefits of CBD oil?

Studies show that CBD oil has a variety of potential health benefits, including reducing inflammation & pain, relieving anxiety and depression, and improving sleep. CBD oil is also being studied for its potential to treat other conditions, such as epilepsy and cancer.

How is the CBD that Canavape use unique?

THC oil is also being studied for its potential to treat other conditions, such as epilepsy and cancer. THC medications are now legal and widely available on a prescription basis.

Vaping CBD oils

Vaping CBD oil or CBD E Liquid is one of the most popular ways to consume CBD due to its rapid absorption. CBD vape oil is made by mixing CBD oil or isolated cannabinoids with a carrier liquid, such as propylene glycol or vegetable glycerine. This makes it easy to inhale CBD e liquid from a vaporizer or e-cigarette without having to smoke.

How to choose the right oil for you

When choosing between CBD and THC oil, it’s important to consider what you want to use the oil or E Liquid for. If you are familiar with psychoactive effects or are seeking an effective treatment for a known ailment, then THC oil prescribed by a doctor maybe the right choice for you.

CBD and THC oils each have their own unique benefits and drawbacks. CBD oil is non-psychoactive and potentially has a variety of potential health benefits, whilst THC oil is psychoactive and has its own set of proven & powerful health benefits which can be used in the treatment of disease.
