Medical marijuana consumers who choose to medicate using cannabis oil can do so in a variety of ways, like oral ingestion, vaporization, and topical application. Cannabis oil has a variety of health benefits; it is seen as a viable cancer treatment, a sleep aid, and a stress reliever.

New studies show cannabis oil can decrease the size of cancerous cells, and especially when it is comprised of a ratio of 1:1 equal parts CBD and THC. While cannabis should not replace conventional cancer treatments, its use as a supplementary therapy can enhance cancer treatment regimens. Cannabis oil is also an excellent sleep aid for those who suffer from insomnia, as it helps consumers get a full night's sleep without feeling the grogginess that many other medications produce the next day. Lastly, when using the right THC and CBD composition, cannabis oil relieves stress by minimizing stress receptors in the body, helping people relax and experience a calm and peaceful state of mind.
