So why CBD Cannabis Oil…
We live in times where alternative therapies are not as unusual as they used to be. Poor access to affordable healthcare, limited resources available on the market and lack of solutions made the alternative our every-day therapy commonly used together with traditional practises or as a replacement with almost equally good results.
CBD oil has been known for its healing properties for centuries. South Africa is one of few countries in the World where cannabis has been legalised for home use, allowing South Africans access to the amazing healing properties this plant can offer.
At Cannabis Therapy we specialise in producing a powerful blended oil that contains both CBD and THC and this approach has allowed us to help successfully treat thousands of customers over the years.

Cannabis Oil Insights
South Africans can now grow and use cannabis in the privacy of their own home thanks to the constitutional court ruling in September 2018 that ruled that it is not a criminal offense for an adult citizen to possess or grow cannabis in a private environment for personal consumption. South Africa is on the verge of fully embracing this amazing plant. The scientist are daily discovering new ways to harness the medical attributes of the plant and now these products are insights that are available to all South Africans.
Cannabis oil is also called dagga olie, dagga oil, hemp oil, CBD oil, and weed oil. Whatever one calls it, it’s powerful and should be considered as part of any treatment plan, cannabis oil enhances ones entire endocannabinoid system which results in a patient feeling mentally stronger, emotionally more stable and physically stronger.
What is Cannabis Oil?
Cannabis oil refers to the extract that is harvested from the plant. The resin of the cannabis plant contains cannabinoids that are found within a sticky resin that is found in the flower of the plant. This resin is extracted in a sterile environment and turned into medical grade products that are now freely available via us or our established network of resellers that operate throughout South Africa.
With the popularity around cannabis based medications, you will most likely have heard of at least two of the many compounds that are found within the plant. The first is THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and the second CBD (Cannabidiol), in reality there are hundreds of compounds that are produced but these two seem to have the most research conducted and they also are present in the highest concentrations within the plant. Most medical advancements being made in this space centre on both THC and CBD respectively.
Most people use or know about the two main cannabinoids:
- Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)– a psychoactive compound prevalent in cannabis that has a number of medical attributes, most notably it is effective for the treatment of pain, muscle spasticity, glaucoma, insomnia, low appetite, nausea and anxiety to name but a few conditions that THC effectively treats.
- Cannabidiol (CBD)– a non-psychoactive, second most abundant compound found in cannabis, with few side effects; mostly legal, especially as medical cannabis. Effectively used to treat seizures, inflammation, pain, psychosis or mental disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, nausea, migraines and depression and anxiety to name but a few of the conditions that CBD effectively treats.
Being informed about the health benefits of cannabis compounds helps to support the push for its blanket legalisation. Scientists are conducting in-depth studies to better understand how and why cannabinoids that are found with the cannabis plant react so well to our endocannabinoid system. Medical cannabis oil is being prescribed by pharmacists, doctors and natural health practitioners. Patients that are correctly prescribed the oils function better than those that are simply treating via conventional means. Our entire range is available either directly form us or via our established network of resellers who reside around South Africa.
Cannabis Oil Uses
Medical cannabis has been used for centuries by health professionals around the globe. In ancient times, physicians around the plant mixed cannabis with other herbs to create treatments for a whole host of issues. Such uses included treatments for pain, anxiety, infertility, cognitive issues to name but a few. In the 1970’s pharmaceutical companies realised the threat that cannabis posed and aggressive attempts were made to create synthetic compounds that were naturally found within the plant. The motive was that a synthetic compound could be patented and ultimately controlled for profit. Prior to its prohibition, more than 280 producers in the USA produced successfully around 2000 cannabis based medications that helped to treat people. Our entire range of medical grade cannabis oils are available either directly from us or via our established network of resellers who reside around South Africa.
Medical CBD or THC Oil
Medical CBD or THC oil refers to how the cannabis plant was grown and extracted. The cannabis plant contains more than 400 different compounds of which 70 are known cannabinoids. For this reason the study and research that goes into cannabis is complicated due to the large number of variables and factors at play. Modern science has shown that to fully harness the power of the plant, you need to ensure that the ratio of THC to CBD is balanced to ensure that the entourage effect is promoted ultimately ensuring that the patient’s condition is effectively treated.
There should be more CBD than THC for medicinal purposes as the CBD mitigates the psychoactive qualities of the THC, rendering a potent medication that can successfully treat many disorders.
Today, people are choosing CBD cannabis oil to boost their present health, all our products are available directly through us or via our established network of resellers around South Africa.

Differences between Cannabis and Hemp
Cannabis oil is often confused with Hemp oil. Both oils are extracted from the Cannabis sativa plan, Cannabis is produced in three primary ways, firstly we have herbal which involves the dried flowers and tops and leaves of the plant, second we have resin, which involves the crushing the plant to extract a sticky resin that resides within the flowers. Lastly we have oil, which is extracted from the leaves and flowers.
- Cannabis– Contains both THC and CBD as well as many other cannabinoids. The main difference between Cannabis and Hemp is the THC content. Cannabis contains THC that is more than 0.2% and Hemp contains THC that is less than 0.2%.
- Hemp– contains mostly CBD and is used as a general health booster, plus medicinal therapy. Hemp is mostly grown for its fibre and seeds, used in manufacturing and to create health products. The lack of THC makes hemp a safer, more acceptable health therapy, used for nutritional and medicinal purposes. Hemp oil is revered for its ideal omega 3 / omega 6 ratio while CBD oil is used as a medication, with no side effects.
Cannabis and the Endocannabinoid System
Cannabis has been scientifically proved to be beneficial for your health. Cannabinoids can treat human illnesses, often with success. THC and CBD work with the body’s endocannabinoid system, this system regulates pleasure, metabolism and mental moods as well as a number of other key issues including pain. Our bodies naturally produce cannabinoids, but if there is a deficiency present then you need to supplement your cannabinoid intake and there is nothing more powerful or better than cannabis. In the same way we take Vitamin C from lemons and oranges because we know these fruits contain high levels of it, we use cannabis to supplement our cannabinoid needs.
Cannabis Oil and Cancer
Research has shown that THC and CBD interact with CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors on cancer cells which encourages increased ceramide. This forces the cancer cells to commit suicide, or undergo programmed cell death, which is essential for the maintenance of normal cellular homeostasis and is an important physiological response to many forms of cellular stress.
Usually cancer cells do not die but continue to spread and multiply. So when patients take cannabis oils constantly for a period of time, they keep up the metabolic pressure on cancer cells to die and to stop proliferating. It is therefore safe to say that cannabis oil can kill your cancer.
