Cannabis oil has become one of the most popular and convenient ways of enjoying cannabis.

Keep reading to find out everything you need to know about cannabis oil and how you can make the most of it.
Cannabis oil is a liquid extract that is pulled from the cannabis plant. This potent extract has quickly gained popularity for its potency, effectiveness, and ease of use.
Be careful not to confuse CBD oil with cannabis oil. While CBD oil is indeed an oily extract pulled from the cannabis plant, it is typically stripped of all other compounds, leaving behind just CBD. By comparison, most cannabis oils are usually THC-dominant and typically feature a broad spectrum or full spectrum of plant compounds.
Some cannabis oils are made to be applied sublingually or ingested orally, while others are specifically designed to be vaporized or smoked. It’s important to know which is which so you can use them as safely and effectively as possible.
If your oil is designed for sublingual application, the easiest way to use it is to load up the dropper and use it to place the oil under your tongue. Let the oil sit there for a few minutes before swishing it around your mouth and swallowing it. The contents of the oil will be absorbed by membranes under the tongue and on the inside of the cheeks from where it can be transported into the bloodstream leading to fast-acting effects.
Using a cannabis oil pen is just as easy! Pre-filled oil cartridges can be quickly attached to 510 thread batteries to produce instant vapor at the press of a button or even just as you inhale.
What are the advantages of using cannabis oil instead of another cannabis product? Cannabis oil is a more discreet dosing option that is easy to use and carry, making it perfect for on-the-go dosing. Additionally, cannabis oil is a safer alternative to smoking or vaping cannabis since it requires no inhalation of any kind of foreign substance.
