Everything You Want to Know about Cannabis Pills

Cannabis products are usually consumed by smoking the leaves or flowers of the marijuana plants. Although this is a potent method to get the cannabinoids into your bloodstream, it has all the disadvantages of smoking regular tobacco products, including the danger of lung cancer and general damage to your respiratory system.

For this reason, many prefer to take their dose of cannabinoids in the form of safe Cannabis Oil Pills.

With cannabis oil pills, you can get all the benefits of typical medical marijuana use without the side effects of smoking.

Typically preferred by people who suffer from respiratory problems, young children and those who want to protect their health, these pills are a safer, arguably better way to get your THC and CBD dose.

In this article, we’ll cover anything you need to know about THC pills that also contain cannabidiol.

Cannabis Oil Pills vs. Smoking Marijuana

Aside from smoking being a general health hazard, there are plenty more reasons why taking your cannabinoids in pill form might be better for you. Here are some examples:

  1. Pills have a steadier dosage. It’s never certain how much THC and CBD you will get from each marijuana plant. With the oil, you receive a steady and predictable result.
  2. Pills don’t smell. Not everyone wants the smell of smoked cannabis in their home, both for social reasons and personal preference.
  3. Pills don’t ruin your home. Smoking anything in your home will cause walls to yellow and fabrics to deteriorate and will give your home a dirtier look.

It is absolutely recommended that children should never smoke cannabis. When they need to be medicated with THC, it is best to choose an edible oil or pill.

Also, if you suffer from asthma or other respiratory illnesses, you should never smoke your medical cannabis, because it might actually make your symptoms worse.

The main reason why cannabis oil pills are so popular is the many actual health benefits offered by the cannabinoids THC and CBD.

The Amazing Benefits of Cannabis Oil Pills

Cannabis contains many cannabinoids, but those that interest us the most medically are THC and CBD.

THC is the most sought after substance in cannabis as it is the main psychoactive agent. THC causes the brain to release more dopamine, which causes a state of euphoria, relaxation and a high. There are side effects to taking THC, and it is an addictive substance. Always ask your physician before choosing to medicate yourself with cannabis.

CBD, on the other hand, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that offers many of the benefits of THC without causing confusion or a high. It has very few and insignificant side effects and is a legal supplement in all states.

  1. Both THC and CBD offer you…
  2. Potent Anxiety Relief (THC rarely can cause paranoia as a side effect)
  3. Less Stress
  4. Nausea Relief (ideal for patients undergoing chemo)
  5. Pain Relief
  6. Reduced Inflammation

There is no scientific proof yet that cannabis oil pills cure cancer, asthma, multiple sclerosis or epilepsy. Research has shown results in mice that suffered from cancer, but studies on humans are still underway.

Stay tuned because new cannabidiol research results are published every day and CBD might still be holding even more secrets!

How are Cannabis Oil Pills made?

It is actually quite easy to make cannabis capsules.

First, you have to choose the cannabis strain that is most likely to contain the right amount of THC and CBD to help soothe your symptoms. It is best to choose a high-CBD and low-THC strain at first.

The flowers of your cannabis strain need to be baked. Around 5.5 to 7 grams of cannabis needs to be placed in an aluminum foil bowl and baked in the oven at 225 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.

The baked cannabis is ground into a fine powder and added to coconut oil. Seven grams of cannabis need a tablespoon of oil. More oil makes the pills lighter, and less oil makes them more potent.

Heating the mixture in a slow cooker for 3-6 hours is the next step. The oil is then placed in the large end of a capsules and sealed.

After the capsules are dried off, they are ready to be consumed. Cannabis oil pills need to be refrigerated to last longer.

Side Effects of Cannabis Oil Pills

Since most of these pills contain quite enough THC to cause a high, there might be some unpleasant side effects in some cases, like paranoia, memory loss (short term), confusion, lack of energy, extreme sleepiness/drowsiness, lack of focus, and sadness.

You may also experience dry mouth and dry eyes.

You should always ask your physician first before medicating yourself with any cannabis product.

    I started using Hemp-oil several weeks ago via e-vapor system. I have serious back and spine issues that cause me great pain compounded by psoriatic arthritis. I am white 71 year old male that has been healthy but overweight. My spine issue is hereditary. I will be undergoing surgery sometime in April. Unfortunately, the Hemp-oil has not helped. I believe it is a very low amount of CBD. I am looking for some guidance. My email is [email protected].

      Is there not a huge difference between cannibus oil with low THC and Hemp oil? This really needs to be clarified over and over.

      • Ingrid

        Hemp oil is often used as a carrier oil for scents and skin product etc. It is not formulated for CBD potency. Cannabis oil has differing potencies of CBD and THC depending on the purpose.

    • Ingrid

      Did you get the Hemp oil from a dispensary, because many hemp oil products are designed for topical “transport” oil purposes and not for medicinal purposes. It also could be the strength or strain. If you suffer from pain you likely have a opioid receptor problem aggravated by any number of causes Plus just the plain lake of opioids in the environment, The CBD not only helps stimulate the receptors, but has many far reaching benefits besides pain relief. Please Don’t give up on CBD. God Bless!

      I’ve read just about all the information available for hemp-derived CBD
      Oil and most all of the testimonials are positive. I’ve come across
      some, but few, testimonials in which the reviewer said it did not work
      for their condition.
      Considering how many rave reviews (and few to no negative reviews – usually in regard to product prices) can be found (on sites like Healthy Hemp Oil .com), for the low-to-no thc CBD Oil derived from Hemp, one has to wonder if those reviews are from actual buyers/users of the products or whether they are site-derived.
      You can buy the hemp Oil in various strength, so true, perhaps what you tried was a low CBD Concentration.

    Until they legalize it it other states we are screwed. I’ve bought several “CBD” vape products, none of which do anything because it’s derived from Hemp, not cannabis. We either all have to move to Colorado, or wait until it is legalized – Steve from NY

    I need good capsules,also need to know how much oil is enough I have stage 4 pancreatic cancer thanks so much for your time and help sincerely Cindy Harris ,in a lot of pain

      To Cindy Harris:
      Research points to SOME people having success
      fighting cancer with CBD oil… not everyone and there aren’t a lot of
      studies on any particular cancer using CBD as therapy. (I have stage 4
      Medullary Thyroid Cancer) I’ve researched a lot and can send you
      articles, links, etc… as well as my favorite site from which I always
      purchase the CBD. You can contact me at mail2asb. the domain that I
      use is AT runbox DOT com.
      The Biggest drawback about CBD which garners the most complaints is… it’s too expensive

    Dr. Steve: I researched extensively and would not buy CBD vape products as they have the lease amount of CBD ‘per serving’, and most contain other ingredients such as PG and another harmful ingredient shown to be toxic. You’ll likely only see benefits from other CBD (hemp derived) products and only a few companies sell the relatively pure CBD oil (again, hemp derived). Regarding hemp-derived versus pot-derived CBD, there are those that claim both are beneficial, as it is the CBD, not the THC which is beneficial. Additionally, some products work for some people and not for others.
