How To Use Cannabis Oil

With an increase in research and innovation in the cannabis space, you’re bound to have heard about cannabis oil. That’s partly due to the fact that it’s incredibly versatile and has a variety of uses!

So, what is cannabis oil anyway?

This cannabis concentrate is derived from the upper leaves and flowers of the plants. They go through a process known as steam distillation, then, they’re mixed with a carrier oil such as coconut oil or hemp seed oil for consumption. Whether you’re looking for CBD or THC, there’s a wide range of cannabis oils available for each desired effect.

Now that you know what it is, let’s take a look at how to use cannabis oil—and what sets it apart from other products in the weed industry.

Why Choose Cannabis Oil

What are some of the biggest reasons cannabis oil is becoming a standout in its industry?

The Difference Between Cannabis Oil and Other Edibles

Cannabis oil’s higher bioavailability rate (the ability of a substance to be absorbed and used by the body) makes it a top choice for those who want the effects to kick in much faster.

Compared to edibles that need around 30 to 60 minutes to metabolize, CBD oil enters the system at a swifter rate when taken sublingually.

How To Use Cannabis Oil


One of the most common ways to use cannabis oil is by placing it under the tongue. This is done using a dropper, which then allows it to be absorbed by the mucous membranes and goes directly into the bloodstream. 

If you’re wondering how to use cannabis oil without lowering the amount absorbed by your body, sublingually is the way to go. That’s because it bypasses the stomach and ensures high levels of bioavailability.

Using this method, it’ll take about 15 to 30 minutes for the effects to kick in.

Infused in Food or Drinks

Cannabis oil can also be added to your favourite food and drinks. Many people prefer THC oil for cooking because of its psychoactive properties. When it comes how much you should be adding to turn it into an edible, it’s always best to start low and go slow.

Added to Gels and Creams

Many CBD enthusiasts use cannabis oil topically as a cream, paste, or gel for pain relief. Usually, a few drops are added to the product of choice. Get ready to say “hello” to CBD aromatherapy!

Smoked with a Pipe

If you’re wondering how to use cannabis oil by means of smoking, then you’re going to need your trusty bong.

Simply mix a few drops of CBD oil with water and heat the device like you normally would. And there you have it—you’ll get to enjoy a CBD oil-infused smoke.

Mixed In A Vape Tank

Incorporating some CBD oil into your favourite vape liquid is also another way to go about it. Adding one drop of CBD oil into the vape tank that contains the e-juice is more than enough to feel the effects of the product!
