What Is Cannabis Oil?

Cannabis oil is derived from the the plant known scientifically as Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Sativa. A full plant spectrum cannabis oil, called an extract or concentrate, contains compounds called cannabinoids that are essential to a healthy, properly functioning endocannabinoid system. The mammalian endocannabinoid system is made up of receptors that connect with cannabinoids such as CBD, THC, and THCa.

What Is CBD or Cannabidiol?

Cannabidiol or CBD is one such cannabinoid that is currently receiving a lot of attention for its role in the successful therapy of pediatric epilepsy. CBD is not psychoactive, meaning it doesn’t induce the “high” effect that people often attribute with cannabis or its slang nomiker marijuana. CBD is often described as having a soothing effect, making it a complimentary option for symptoms related to anxiety. Concentrated honey gold CBD oil can also be quite effective in relieving pain.

What Is THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol?

THC is a psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis that elicits feelings of euphoria and an overall sense of relaxation. Increased laughter, fatigue, or hunger are examples of side effects that may be experienced by adults when consuming THC or products containing THC. Research indicates that THC oil or medicine in conjunction with other cannabinoids and plant terpenes may be useful in caring for PTSD (related to trauma), nausea, inflammation, cancer, sleep apnea, and loss of appetite.

What Is THCa?

THCa or Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid is the raw form of THC found in the live cannabis plant prior to curing or drying. Once heated, THCa is converted to THC through a process called decarboxylation. THCa can be derived as a healthy dietary supplement by juicing the cannabis plant or from low-temperature extraction processes.


How Do I Get Started With Cannabinoid Therapy?

The recommended oils, ratio, and amount can vary from patient to patient. For more personalized education and guidance, we strongly recommend consulting with a nurse trained in cannabinoid therapy.

How Do I Measure My Dose?

Do I need a Medical Marijuana Recommendation to purchase CannaKids Cannabis Oil Tinctures?


For patients under the age of 21 in California, parents will want to obtain a “caregiver recommendation” for a pediatric patient.

A Pediatric Caregiver Recommendation is a medical marijuana recommendation from a marijuana doctor that legally covers both the caregiver (parent) & patient (under 21 yrs of age), and allows the caregiver to purchase & administer oils on the patient’s behalf.

We strongly advise and encourage that a Pediatric Caregiver Recommendation is obtained for patients under 21.

Please be advised, that many cannabis doctors do not provide this service!  For your convenience, we’ve listed referrals for several on the MMJ DOCTORS page of our website, under the LOCATIONS menu tab.

You can also call the top rated Medical Marijuana Doctors near you and ask if they provide this particular service specific to pediatric patients. Be sure to inquire if any additional medical documentation is required to support the medical condition claims.


For Patients over the age of 21 who wish to obtain a medical marijuana recommendation. Visit CannaKids at HelloMD to obtain one online from the comfort and privacy of your home, via video chat!  PLEASE NOTE: HelloMd.com does not provide Caregiver Recommendations for pediatric patients — only adult recommendations and adult caregiver recommendations (for elderly patients).

What Do I Look For When Purchasing Cannabis Oil or Cannabis Oil Tinctures?

Clear Labels: Look for labels showing the quantity and ratio of cannabis compounds CBD, THC, and/or THCa per dose.

Lab Testing: Look for products that are tested for consistency, and verified as free of mold, bacteria, pesticides, solvent residues, and other contaminants.

Quality Ingredients: Select products with quality ingredients. AVOID corn syrup, GMOs, transfats, or artificial additives.

Safe Extraction: AVOID products extracted with toxic solvents like BHO, propane, hexane or other hydrocarbons. Solvent residues are especially dangerous for immune-compromised patients. Look for products that entail a safer method of extraction like supercritical CO2.

Cannabis vs Industrial Hemp?: Compared to whole plant cannabis, industrial hemp is low in cannabinoid content. A huge amount of industrial hemp is required to extract a small amount of CBD, raising the risk of contaminants because hemp, a bioaccumulator, draws toxins and heavy metals from soil. The robust terpene profile of whole plant cannabis also enhances the therapeutic benefits of CBD, THC and THCa. NOTE: New genetics of hemp are available that offer a safe solution for topical products or for dietary supplement by users with healthy immune systems. Source: Project CBD
