The green rush has begun across North America. With cannabis being federally legal in Canada, and individual states legalizing cannabis in the US, you can easily access cannabis products from the comfort of your own home.
That being said, not all cannabis oil manufacturers are alike, and not all of them produce high-quality products. Finding a quality source for any form of cannabis oil whether it is pure CBD isolate or a high-quality THC concentrate, is the only way to ensure the product you are using is not only safe, but it is also effective.
In Canada, life is a little easier, finding a licensed producer takes a quick search. In the US, each state has its own rules and regulations regarding the sales and consumption of cannabis products.
I’ve done the research and compiled a list of reputable cannabis suppliers in both Canada and the US. I’ve also listed the basic rules regarding the use of cannabis oils in various states.
Can You Legally Buy Cannabis Oil Online?
In short, yes, you can buy cannabis oil online. If you are living in an approved US State, you can buy it. Also, if you live in Canada, you can use it. If you don’t live in a state that has approved cannabis for recreational or medical use (or both) your only option for legal cannabis oil is CBD (cannabidiol) oil derived from industrial hemp. Typically, a CBD oil will contain less than 0.03% THC. This is what makes it legal.
Cannabis oil, hemp oil, CBD oil etc. are interchangeable terms used in the cannabis community. However, they can also be used to describe various types of cannabis oils.
Hemp oil is usually the extraction of industrial hemp plants (cannabis plants with very little THC). Cannabis oils are extracted from cannabis plants usually containing high levels of THC and other beneficial cannabinoids like CBD.
Types of cannabis oil
Extracting THC from strains of cannabis is the essence of THC oil. As you know, THC is the cannabinoid in cannabis that produces psychoactive effects- a high feeling. It is legal in Canada to consume high-quality cannabis oils.
They are often called cannabis concentrates or extracts. In the US, THC is highly regulated, and it is not federally legal. However, some states have legalized cannabis for both recreational and medical purposes.
CBD (cannabidiol) is a legal compound of cannabis that is extracted from the leaves, stems, and stalks of industrial hemp cannabis plants. These extractions are used to make oils, tinctures, and other concentrates that heal and repair the body. CBD oil contains less than 0.03% THC.
The US considers CBD a food supplement. There are several reputable CBD companies you can order CBD oil from. The farm bill that was passed in the US has made CBD and other industrial hemp products legal.
Reputable Cannabis Oil Companies in Canada
While there are legally licensed producers where you can buy cannabis oil online, there is also a grey area. There are many online stores called MOMs (mail order marijuana shops), and some of them are operating without permission.
This doesn’t mean the products aren’t high-quality. It means that they can be shut down on a moment’s notice, so there are times when a MOM can be unreliable. Personally, I’ve used MOMs in the past and have received some of the best cannabis oil concentrates and shatter.
Here is a list of cannabis stores online that use high-quality cannabis to make high-quality oils:
