Cannabis oil is a great product that many people love. It is smoke-free, easy to use, and comes in a variety of potencies. Once you figure out how to use cannabis oil, it might become your new favourite. 

What is Cannabis Oil? 

Cannabis oil is a smoke-free way of enjoying cannabis. It is made by mixing extracts from the cannabis plant with a neutral food-grade oil, like olive oil. Cannabis oils are available in a variety of levels of CBD and THC. Some products contain high levels of CBD without any THC while others have an equal balance of CBD and THC. There are also some oils that have a strong THC potency without any CBD. You might want to try a few before deciding which one is your favourite. 

Usually, these oils come in a dropper-style bottle that allows you to measure how much you consume, though some brands are available in sprays as well. Like edibles, it will probably take you a little longer to feel the effects of cannabis oil than you would inhaling a joint or a vape. Oils make take half an hour or even up to four hours to kick in.  

How to Use Cannabis Oil

How to use cannabis oil is an incredibly common question. They are actually quite simple to use and don’t require any special tools. Follow these four simple steps:

  1. Shake well

The first step is to always shake the bottle to make sure that the cannabis extract and carrier oil are well mixed. 

  1. Apply under the tongue

Most cannabis oils are meant to be dropped directly under the tongue. From there, the oil is absorbed directly into your bloodstream. 

  1. Adjust the dose

Figuring out how much to use is purely a personal preference. As with any cannabis, start low and go slow especially if you have not tried many cannabis products in the past. Don’t forget that it might take some time to feel the effects of the oil. Gradually increase the amount you use each time you try it until you find your preferred amount. 

  1. When in doubt, ask!
