Using cannabis oil to treat health ailments is all the rage right now. However, before using one of these oils yourself it is important to know a little about each type. One of these is full extract cannabis oil, also known as FECO. Here is a quick rundown of what makes this oil so special and its benefits.
This cannabis oil is extracted through the cannabis flower instead of its leaves. The extraction process also uses food-grade ethyl alcohol. The cannabis resin is then separated from the parts of the cannabis plant that are left over which creates a highly-concentrated product. Due to its extreme concentration, only a very small amount, up to the size of a grain of rice, is used at one time.
How is It Different From Regular Oil?
With such a high concentration, it is important to monitor your intake. That is why FECO is typically taken orally instead of through inhalation. Many providers package the product in syringes or in small capsules for a carefully measured dose.
How Can It Help?
Like many other cannabis oils, FECO users claim it helps manage chronic illnesses as well as sleep disorders, depression, arthritis, inflammation and multiple sclerosis. Cannabis oil is also said to assist with pain associated with cancer.
Like any home remedy, it is important to consult a doctor before starting any of your own cannabis oil treatment.
