Meanwhile, another study published in Addiction found that while vaping nicotine may be safer than smoking cigarettes, the same may not hold true when it comes to marijuana. In fact, additives, like vitamin E acetate may make that delivery method even more dangerous than simply smoking a joint, putting the vaper’s lungs at a greater risk for injury. Yet, a Gallup Poll indicates that most Americans believe that vaping is less harmful than smoking. In fact, 40% of the respondents felt that marijuana was “not too” harmful.
In fact, a study that appeared in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that first-time and infrequent users of marijuana were more likely to experience adverse reactions from vaping THC oil. They indicated that these negative impacts were largely due to the enhanced delivery of the oil through vaping. The participants in the study also had more pronounced effects from the drug and experienced significant impacts to their motor skills and cognitive abilities.
Consequently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended that people avoid using e-cigarettes and vaping products, particularly those that contain THC oil. Even just vaping the oil once can significantly impact your lungs.

Even though several states allow medical marijuana that contains THC, it is still illegal under federal law. Some states have even made recreational marijuana legal, but it’s also illegal under U.S. law.
If you’re considering vaping THC oil, you might want to reconsider given the fact that it can have such a negative impact on your lungs. Vaping THC oil can lead to a substance use disorder, which in severe cases can become an addiction.
Additionally, it’s believed that in addition to giving you a euphoric feeling, THC also impacts pain, mood, and other feelings. CBD on the other hand does not make you high and is believed to work with other receptors in the body to produce an overall feeling of well-being.
The fiber hemp we use for the production of CBD Oil, contains less than 0.2% THC. During the production of different CBD products, the level of THC in the fiber hemp will further reduce.
On the Internet all kinds of terms and symptoms are mentioned that cause confusion. So many, that you, as a customer, cannot see the forest for the trees anymore. We will try to inform you in this article as clearly as possible about the apparent differences between Cannabis oil, CBD oil, marijuana oil, hemp oil and THC oil.
One of these names is normally given to oils made from the resin of the female marijuana plant. So when you learn something about marijuana oil, an oil is meant with a high concentration of THC and sometimes with a high concentration of CBD as well.
CBD products without THC
Three names that in most cases refer to the same product. In popular speech, different names were created out of THC containing oils from (Dutch) marijuana. Those saying marijuana oil, cannabis oil or THC oil normally refer to the same thing. An oil made from (Dutch) marijuana with a high concentration of THC. The purpose is to become high, though the medicinal effect becomes more and more important.
We receive many questions about the types of Cannabis oil, marijuana oil, THC oil, hemp oil and CBD oil. What does the name stand for and what is in the oil? The biggest difference is the concentration of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol ) in the oils. Whereas hemp and CBD oil do not contain THC, the other oils do contain measurable levels of THC (the active substance that can produce a high).
CBD oil is made of industrial fiber hemp plants. You do not get high or stoned from CBD oil (it is made of hemp, not of marijuana). CBD is good for your health (see links below for more information).
The human body contains, just like other mammals and animals an endo-cannabinoid system. Endo stands for endogenous to the body. Endo-cannabinoids act as signalers and control the production of e.g. hormones. Also, our complex immune system is controlled by the cannabinoid system. So, quite important.
There are over 100 known cannabinoids produced by the cannabis plant, and it is the cannabinoids that put cannabis oil in such high demand. The cannabinoids found in cannabis oil are responsible for its effects by promoting interactions with the body’s endocannabinoid system. Out of all of the cannabinoids found in a cannabis plant, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol) are the most prevalent.
Marijuana is grown to emphasize higher levels of THC, which is the compound that gets users intoxicated and produces psychoactive effects. Marijuana can be used either medically or recreationally and can be applied topically, consumed orally, or vaped. Since marijuana oil and other marijuana extracts contain high levels of THC, it can only be used legally in states that have passed medical or recreational laws. We cover the topic of marijuana legality more below.
Solvent-Based Cannabis Oil Extraction
Hemp, unlike marijuana, is naturally high in CBD and low in THC. Hemp can be used commercially or industrially for thousands of products.

The active compounds in cannabis can be extracted from the plant’s dry or fresh material. There are a number of different extraction techniques that we will detail below, including some that can be done at home.
