Options Medical Center carries a wide variety of cannabis products for both medical and recreational customers at our dispensary in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. One of the best products for experiencing the health benefits of cannabis is oil. Cannabis oil comes in both Cannabidiol (CBD) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) versions so it’s important to know the difference of each and what they can do for you. We here at Options always want to make sure our customers and patients are informed before, during, and after their trip to see us. The most important difference to keep in mind between THC and CBD oils is that THC oil has psychoactive effects and is typically associated with getting “high,” and CBD oil is nonpsychoactive and leans more toward health. Also, THC oil consumption can be illegal in some states and impairs ones ability to do things such as operate a motor vehicle, whereas CBD oil does not provide the intoxicating effects that THC does so it is more widely accepted.
As we previously mentioned, THC oil and THC vape oil are typically associated with the psychoactive properties of marijuana. They should only be used when there is no intention to operate heavy machinery, make important decisions, etc. The effects of THC oil include fatigue, relaxation, altered senses of sight, smell and hearing, reduced aggression, and hunger. Due to these effects, THC oil is used medicinally for dealing with the side effects of many conditions and treatments such as chemotherapy, AIDS treatments, spinal injuries, tremors and seizures, Parkinson’s, MS, and Glaucoma.
CBD oil in contrast to THC oil has no psychoactive properties at all. Due to this it is more widely accepted in places that THC and cannabis are not allowed to be sold or consumed. Also, it is recommended for those that still want to be able to operate heavy machinery, spend time with people, etc. Due to the fact it has no psychoactive properties, it is used in the treatment of arthritis, different types of anxiety, schizophrenia, depression, and appetite in cancer treatment patients. It is also used to reduce psychotic symptoms, treat nausea and convulsions, anxiety, and inflammation.
