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?

How Do I Measure My Dose?

What is Required in Order To Purchase?

A Medical Marijuana Recommendation (or “card”) and California I.D. Is Required for most of our products.

For patients under the age of 18: A “caregiver recommendation” for a pediatric patient” is required. This allows you (the parent or caregiver) to legally purchase the product on your child’s behalf.


In order to obtain a caregiver recommendation, you may review the Doctors listed on our MMJ Doctors page, located under the LOCATIONS menu option.

Or search Google for “[your zip code] + marijuana doctor” and call the top rated office(s) near you to ask if they provide this service (caregiver recommendation for patients under 18). Be sure to inquire if any additional medical documentation is required to support the minor’s medical condition claims.


Visit CannaKids at HelloMD to obtain your medical recommendation online from the comfort and privacy of your home. The consult will be done with a HelloMD Doctor via video chat. NOTE: They do not provide Caregiver Recommendations for pediatric patients — only adult medical cannabis recommendations.

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
