Health Benefits of Cannabis Essential Oil

Some of the most important health benefits of cannabis essential oil include its ability to reduce stress and anxiety, improve the quality of sleep, boost appetite and optimize digestion, reduce pain, prevent certain cancers, strengthen heart health, and protect your skin, among others.

Cannabis Essential Oil

Cannabis essential oil is one of the more unusual oils in the essential oil range, simply because of the plant from which it is derived. Although cannabis and hemp have been used for thousands of years as a naturally growing herb, its reputation as a drug in many parts of the world have complicated the relationship between users of cannabis oil and hemp and authorities in certain parts of the world. However, cannabis essential oil is a wildly beneficial essential oil, and is widely considered of the most effective oils for the alleviation of certain illnesses and condition, in fact. Cannabis essential oil is extracted by steam distillation from the flowers and upper leaves of cannabis plants, which are in the Cannabis genus.

cannabisessentialoilCannabis essential oil is a green liquid that is considered highly volatile, and its component parts are very powerful, including monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, and other highly active organic compounds. The essential oil is primarily made and distributed from France and various other European countries, but its exportation is somewhat limited by, as mentioned above, the legal ramifications of what cannabis essential oil is derived from.

Aside from its extensive medical applications, it is also found in perfumes, soaps, and candles, as well as some use in foods. Considering that this oil is so powerful, very small amounts are necessary for it to have an effect.

Health Benefits of Cannabis Essential Oil

Anxiety and Stress: One of the most popular and well known uses of cannabis essential oil is as a relief for stress and anxiety. The natural compounds found in cannabis essential oil, including the famed THC, which is what gives cannabis the distinction of a drug in many countries, are very good for releasing pleasure hormones and relaxing the mind, reducing stress and inducing a sense of calm and relaxation.

Sleep Issues: For people who suffer from insomnia, constant anxiety during the nighttime hours, or simply struggle to get a sound, restful night of undisturbed sleep, cannabis essential oil works like a charm. By relaxing the body and mind, and inducing a lower energy level, it will be easier to get your heart rate down and clear your head before a long night of peaceful slumber.

Appetite Booster: It is well known that people who consume cannabis in other forms notice increased appetite, famously called “the munchies”. However, cannabis essential oil can help regulate your appetite and induce hunger, while also stimulating your digestive system to operate at a more regular level. This can help people who want to gain weight quickly, particularly after an extended illness or injury recovery.

Pain Reliever: Cannabis essential oil works as a great pain reliever, and is regularly suggested for people with inflammation, chronic pain, and even emergency pain relief. There is a very good reason why people who suffer from cancer often turn to cannabis-related options, including cannabis essential oil, when the pain of chemotherapy or the disease itself becomes unbearable.

Cancer Prevention: Although there is still some controversy over this, and a great deal of research still ongoing, early reports have shown that the active ingredients in cannabis essential oil can have preventative effects on cancer, and can also cause reduction in tumor size, thereby making it easier to effectively beat cancer for those patients already suffering from that tragic disease.

Heart Health: The volatile oils in cannabis essential oil can also help to improve heart health by balancing out the negative oils in your system. It can stimulate antioxidant processes as well, scraping off excess cholesterol and maximizing the health of your cardiovascular system.

Skin Protection: The powerful components of cannabis essential oil are also used to protect the skin, and can be consumed both internally and applied externally to achieve this important side effect. It can stimulate the shedding of dead skin and faster re-growth of health, glowing skin. It also is known to prevent wrinkles and signs of aging, while also protecting against eczema and psoriasis.

Glaucoma: In terms of eye health, cannabis and cannabis essential oil have been linked to a reduction in glaucoma and a prevention of macular degeneration. Eye health is one of the major reasons why people turn to cannabis essential oil as they age.

Headaches and Migraines: Topically applying some cannabis essential oil at the temples or the spot of intensity for a migraine or headache can be an effective way to get relief. Many people turn to prescriptions for cannabis and cannabis oil due to its potent defense against crippling headaches and pain.

A Final Word of Warning: Although this list clearly shows that cannabis essential oil can be an effective remedy for many common health conditions, it is still a potent chemical substance extracted from a plant with psychotropic substances. Therefore, you should always be very careful of your use of such an essential oil, including the amount you use and the conditions under which you use it. Speak to a professional about mixing essential oils and present medications before adding any new elements into your health regimen. Also, use of cannabis is restricted/banned by many countries, so consult local health specialist before use.

    This was a good read! In researching a comprehensive article on the pros and cons of CBD oil for my own site, Healevate, I came across some pretty valuable information, for anyone interested. Reply to this comment if you’d like, and I’ll provide a link. Knowing how to ingest makes all the difference between getting the benefits and getting absolutely nothing.

    wife has been suffering from thyroid cancer which was confirmed to be stage four, the doctor told me there was little she could do since she wasn’t responding to treatment but my brother in law came to our rescue by ordering this hemp oil from Rick Simpson Foundation which he said has been helping some patient fight against cancer of various types so we decided to give it a chance, so far my wife is improving perfectly very well and presently she can walk around the house all by herself. I felt its necessary i let others who are suffering from this acute disease that once you have a good hemp oil it can really give one a sound second chance of living. if you happen to be in need of this hemp oil you can contact the foundation who supplied my brother in law with this email: [email protected] or call +17138933185

  • Claire Anderson

    I want to thank Dr. Daniel Floyd and all the management of Dr. Daniel Floyd Pharmaceuticals their life saving cannabis oil cured my wife of thyroid cancer , the doctor told me there was little they could do and despite all the chemotherapy and radiation, she was not responding to treatment. so a friend of mine came to our rescue by ordering the cannabis oil from Dr. Daniel pharmaceutical. Which actually is established by one of the students of Rick Simpson, covered by the legal certification of Rick Simpson. Dr. Daniel Floyd has been helping patients fight cancer of various types, as it is almost impossible to reach Rick Simpson himself on time. So we decided give it a try, so far my wife is improving very well and today she can walk around the house all by herself. I believe it is necessary to let others, especially those suffering from this acute disease that once you have this oil, it can really give a second chance at life. If you happen to be in need of this oil, should contact the via this email: [email protected]

      I have been using some of dr megan’s cannabis oil in treating my sister’s rare form of left hand side breast cancer with a lot of improvement since 3 weeks and the oil is working in a miraculous way beyond our expectations. The medication is working with super proof though she is always euphoric with THC potency, but the medication is working miraculously. She is a Mother of 3 wonderful kids.

        I’m very excited and impressed! I was desperate for help dealing with Lyme Disease and sleep issues. I read about cannabis oil on a Lyme forum which led me to Doctor Megan Ann – I only wanted raw, pure and natural etc. I started taking her CBD oil two weeks ago and it’s already working and making a HUGH difference. Thank you!

      • Shona Davies

God Bless

  • Cannabis OIL

    What is Cannabis Oil?
    Cannabis oil is a thick, sticky, resinous substance made up of cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD, that is extracted from the cannabis plant (Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica). Cannabis oil is a cannabis based product obtained by separating the resins from cannabis flowers using a solvent extraction process. Cannabis oil can also be known as marijuana oil, Rick Simpson Oil (RSO), Full extract cannbais oil (FECO), hash oil, dabs, shatter, or wax.
    Cannabis oil is the most potent of three main cannabis products, which are the actual cannabis flower (marijuana), resin (hashish), and oil (cannabis oil). Cannabis oil is the most concentrated form of the three main cannabis products. That is what makes cannabis oil the most potent.
    Cannabis Oil produced and sold by “dealers” can have many contaminants and many times will have minimal amounts or no THC or CBD in them at all. Most of the time cannabis oil available on the street should be avoided for medicinal uses such as treating cancer. It’s always better to make your own oil or to have someone you trust make your oil. This helps assure a very pure, high quality oil is obtained. If you know who made your oil, you can better know what you are getting in your oil.
    High quality cannabis oil can be used in many ways medicinally and can be used for many different conditions. Cannabis Oil can be orally ingested, vaporized into the lungs, used as a suppository or applied topically. You can also mix your oil with creams or salves for beauty treatments and other external uses.
    Some of the conditions cannabis oil has been used for include: cancer, diabetes, crohn’s disease, gout, pain relief, Glaucoma, Opioid Dependence, treating alcohol abuse, epilepsy, psoriasis, anorexia, asthma, adrenal disease, inflammatory bowel disease, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, pain, migraines, Dravet syndrome, Doose syndrome, Multiple sclerosis.
    Cannabis oil also posses antioxidant properties. This property makes cannabis oil useful in the treatment and prevention of wide variety of diseases, such as ischemic, age-related inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. Cannabis oil may also have a use as neuroprotectants for such things like limiting neurological damage following a stroke or head trauma. It can also be used in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia.
    Based on history cannabis is believed to have originated from Central Asia. Cannabis is one of the oldest plant medicines known to man. It is difficult to trace the beginnings of cannabis use by humans because it was cultivated and consumed long before the appearance of writing. According to archeological discoveries, cannabis has been known in China since the Neolithic period, around 4000 BC.

      you people are doing a big thing….lot of people deserve to know the truth….everybody should look back to mother nature for answers..not drain her….m/

  • Linda

    My grown son has suffered from severe chronic pain for over 20 years. We have gone from doctor to doctor for help but all they say they can do for him is to give him Hyrocodone, which is not working for him now days. He has never been able to live alone, have a job or even have friends. Has anyone had any luck with cannabis oil for chronic pain? I live in Indiana so I know it isnt legal … but I am ready to try anything to help him. As a parent it is extremely difficult to hear you child crying in pain almost every night. Thanks for any help you can send my way.

    • Jody Sue Pratt

      you should try- Kratom. The FDA is trying to put this herb on the Schedule 1 drug list right now but has not done so yet- It is a powerful pain reliever that is a plant..

      • kate

        I went to get a medical card and instead the holistic Dr. wanted me to try this.. I have hears different talks on this Kratom that it can also be addicting and have yet run into anyone who has actually used it. So would appreciate more info from a user not someone who sells it.

  • Maria Rodriguez

    Where can I purchase?

    • meenakshin

      Hey Maria, check your nearest market else check online. Please note that cannabis products may not be legal in some parts of the world so check prior.

    • DragonTat2

      Where do you live?

  • Fatema Sakerwala

    My father has cancer. If this oil really works I wanna buy is but every time I search for cannabis oil I get hemp oil products. I now know these two are closely related but is hemp oil equally effective on cancer and if not can any one suggest wher I can buy this?

    • Tonya Barnes

      Fatema look up Dr. Sebi research on Frankincense and cancer. If your interested get with me and I will help you. You have to have pure and potent.

    • DragonTat2

      No, not the same. Curing cancer requires a very high THC content, which hemp is incapable of producing. Cannabis oil is easy enough to make, if you can get the plant material. I am fortunate to live in California, just harvested my first plant 3 weeks ago.

  • Christine Matthews

    Cannabis essential oil does not contain THC or CBD. The statements here seem to be based on the essential oil, CBD oil, AND THC oil combined.

    • DragonTat2

      What makes you say that? Cannabis oil is the extracted rosins from the flower buds of the cannabis plant. Should have THCA, CBDA, CBGA, and plenty more, including terpenes. If it is particularly old or has been heated to the point of decarboxylation, then it would have THC, CBD, etc & so on.

  • RomertL

    So how does this compare to the famous Rick Simpson Oil famous for its ability to cure many if not all forms of cancer? I’ve just starting to learn about essential oils and thought the Rick Simpson Oil was considered a essential oil but I now understand it’s different ( if you’re not familiar with RSO, it’s made by dissolving the bud material of the plant and then boil away most of the liquid until a thick “oil”remains with very high THC content). Considering what a miracle medicine RSO is, I’d love to hear more about Cannabis essential oil.

    • DragonTat2

      Do not boil your product. Too much heat is bad for the constituents of the cannabis rosins.

  • Dave

    My wife suffers from IBS does anyone know if cannabis can help.

    • Jordy

      Yes it does. Originally used oil to treat another ailment but I noticed the symptoms associated with my IBS either settled or went away altogether. Now I can enjoy occasional alcohol and spicy foods I missed so much for years. There may be several trips to the loo first thing, but for me that’s it, the rest of day is symptom free. I recommend 1 gram a month taken in small half grain of rice size portions. Just before bed 😉

    • Jordy

      Yes it does. Sorry can’t say more, my last reply was deleted

    • tantricone

      Yes it does remarkably. Also she should be taking a good probiotic. A peppermint or ginger tea would also help with flare ups. Good luck.

    • kate

      IBS can be controlled by diet since it is considered an autoimmune disease. Do some research on diet changes. It works.

  • Mike

    I recently got vapedynamics purline 500mg 30 little pricey but the best one so far!!!

  • Ralph

    I found a small company that sells a high quality hemp cannabis essential oil.
    This essential oil does not contain CBD or THC, but it has a great scent.
    I immediately felt relaxed after putting it in a diffuser.
