THC Oil Benefits

If you’ve had THC in some form before — whether it be via smoking, ingesting in an edible, etc. — you may wonder what really differentiates each form. Like many substances, how you consume THC matters. In this post, we’ll discuss THC oil benefits and how you can wield this ancient elixir to your advantage.

Ease of use and efficiency

THC oil is first commended for its ease of use. Because we’re talking about THC oil, does that mean that you have to swallow a gulp-full of well, oil? Not necessarily. While THC oil is available in tincture form, THC oil can also be found as a solid that can be vaporized (a.k.a. dabs) as well as in capsule form. Sounds pretty easy, right?

Yeah. So, about that efficiency. Though smoking marijuana will produce a high, especially since the concentration of THC levels in marijuana have increased significantly over the years, THC oil will likely offer your desired effects in a lesser amount. This makes it a better option to keep around for some people as you can use it more discreetly (in some forms). Ingesting or smoking THC oil also increases its bioavailability. What’s that? Bioavailability is your body’s ability to absorb and use something. Therefore, THC oil often goes to work sooner and more intensely, even if you use less.

Potential benefits for your health

THC is often prescribed for cases of severe pain, such as after surgery or for those with terminal illnesses. In fact, some physicians favor THC (found in medical marijuana) because it’s considered much safer than opiates and is far less addictive by comparison. You can’t overdose on THC.

THC is also often used for patients who are undergoing chemotherapy, as nausea and vomiting that may be severe are common side effects. When your body is already battling a disease, it’s weak. Therefore, being too nauseated to eat or to keep food down can wreak extra havoc. THC has also been shown to increase appetite in people on chemotherapy and with other illnesses that affect the gastrointestinal system.

Recently, the National Health Service in the UK has approved the use of two cannabis-based drugs, one for epilepsy, particularly in young children. The other is to treat muscle spasticity (spasms and stiffness that can be painful) associated with multiple sclerosis. The drug used for epilepsy has also been approved in the US, known as Epidiolex.

But what about THC for psychoactive reasons? Can it help you deal with things like anxiety? That’s a complicated question. We’ll dive into that more in the next section.

How to find the best THC oil for you

If you’re new to THC oil, you may wonder what the best type is for you. Like many substances, it’s a process of trial-and-error. You may find that some varieties of THC oil make you feel anxious, while others mellow you out. It has a lot to do with not only the amount of THC in the oil itself but also the concentration of other cannabinoids and terpenes. If you’re looking for an intense and euphoric high, get an oil with a lot of THC. If you’re looking for something with a little less of a kick, consider a combination of CBD and THC.

Your best bet is to consult an expert on the matter. If you’re in a state that approves the use of recreational marijuana, find a trusted dispensary and make sure you elaborate on what you’re looking for. Likewise, if you have been prescribed a form of THC by a doctor, make sure you ask plenty of questions and voice any concerns.

With any substance, ancient or not, be smart. Because something works for someone else, doesn’t mean it’ll work for you. Check back with us on Direct THC Online for more THC education.
