feco oil vs cbd oil

Given that there is a high amount of THC in FECO, it can cause a range of psychological symptoms, including but not limited to:

In addition to psychological symptoms, it can cause physical symptoms as well:

There are very few research studies concerning FECO.

The Side Effects of FECO

Of the studies conducted, one recent study was by India’s Amit University. The study, published in the Journal of Cancer Research and Therapeutics, seems to conclude that cannabis may be able to relieve some of the effects of cancer. According to the study, “Medicinal research and meta-data analysis over the last few decades have shown a significant potential for both THC and cannabidiol (CBD) to exert palliative effects. People suffering from many forms of advanced stages of cancers undergo chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting followed by severe and chronic neuropathic pain and weight loss. THC and CBD exhibit effective analgesic, anxiolytic, and appetite-stimulating effect on patients suffering from cancer.”

Full Extract Cannabis Oil (FECO) is a highly-concentrated essential oil of the cannabis plant. FECO differs greatly from traditional CBD products in that FECO contains a much higher concentration THC. This differs from traditional hemp-derived CBD products, which contain under 0.3% THC. The higher concentration of THC can lead to hallucinogenic properties, and other negative side effects. However, the medical community appears to be researching the substance in relation to aiding cancer treatments. Even so, more research is needed to determine its safety and effectiveness in humans before any claims can be made.

As with any research study, such studies should be viewed with caution. Many more research studies are needed to determine the efficacy, safety, and effectiveness of FECO. At this point, there is little to no evidence showing that FECO has any beneficial qualities or is able to support cancer therapy or other medical treatment. More alarming is that there are side effects associated with FECO.

At this point, it cannot be concluded that FECO is safe or effective based on the very few research studies. Further, due to the high THC content, the side effects, and lack of evidence surrounding FECO, it should be viewed with caution. In addition, individuals considering cannabis for medical conditions should talk to their doctor, and should review the medical marijuana laws in their state. Although some states have medical cannabis programs for qualifying patients, cannabis is illegal under federal law and is scheduled as a Schedule I substance. Cannabis is illegal in the United States under federal law and is classified as a Schedule I substance.

CBD has exploded onto the South African market since the changes in legislation earlier this year. Are you sure of what product you’re using?

When it comes to CBD, F.E.C.O. is typically known as Full Extract Cannabis Oil and involves the entire plant. This includes leaves, buds and stem which are then mixed with oil. It can then be transformed into creams, salves, and a variety of other products. However, it is only approved as long as it is within the legal limits – you may not dose more than 20mg per day and the product may not contain more than 0.001% THC. F.E.C.O. usually contains certain grades of coconut or olive oil as the main body. This can then be dosed into capsules, used topically or mixed with food, or the number of other consumption methods.

What is F.E.C.O.

CBD has amazing potential to help numerous chronic medical conditions such as intractable pain, nervous system conditions, and mental health conditions. This is a miracle for everyone suffering but is not necessarily a new discovery as research has been ongoing for some time now. CBD also only has minute amounts of THC in it, unlike marijuana or full extract cannabis oil. Finally, our government is showing some transformation in their laws, allowing CBD to be sold openly (within certain regulations) and the approval of private cannabis consumption and growing. With that said, let’s take a look at the differences between CBD and F.E.C.O. oils.

CBD (cannabidiol) is extracted through a CO2 process and can come in potent levels, typically from 250mg up to 3000mg in a tincture bottle. Prices can vary depending on quality, CBD amount and the millilitre size – they can be small 5ml to 30ml larger bottles. CBD can dramatically change medical concerns, but quite obviously – the more severe your condition, the higher the dose you will need. Seeing as there is little regulation, there is no exact dosing guide – so talking to your doctor or starting low and going slow is smartest. It really depends on your chronic condition as well as your biodiversity as cannabis impacts people differently.
