Cannabis Essential Oil

Cannabis essential oil is one of the most 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 has complicated the relationship between users of cannabis oil and hemp, and authorities in certain parts of the world. However, Cannabis essential oil is a beneficial essential oil and is widely considered as one of the most effective oils for the alleviation of certain illnesses and conditions. Cannabis essential oil is extracted by steam distillation from the flowers and upper leaves of cannabis plants, which are in the Cannabis genus.

Cannabis 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.

Apart from its extensive medical applications, it is also found in perfumes, soaps, and candles, as well as in culinary preparations. Considering that this oil is so powerful, very small amount is sufficient for it to be effective.

CBD is still illegal

Even though CBD shows much promise as a medicine, it remains illegal in many parts of the world. CBD is classified as a Schedule I drug in the United States and a Schedule II drug in Canada.

On Dec. 14 2016, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) made it clear that any marijuana-based extract is considered a Schedule I drug under federal law, including CBD oil and other types of CBD-rich products.

On the other hand, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved a request to trial a pharmaceutical version of CBD in children with rare forms of epilepsy. The drug is made by GW Pharmaceuticals and is called Epidiolex.
CBD products may also be sold in certain states that have legalized medical and/or recreational marijuana.
