What is hash oil?

There are many versatile uses for hash oil as some people smoke it, vape it, eat it, or use it topically on the skin.

The cannabis plant has many uses as well that are similar to that of hash oil.

According to healthline, hash oil comes from cannabis plants and contains THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol).

THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the main psychoactive compound in marijuana.

However, hash oil can be more potent than THC as it can contain 90 percent THC.

On the federal level, cannabis remains illegal in the United States.

Many states likes Colorado, California, Massachusetts, and Oregon have made recreational use of cannabis legal.

Hash oils have been sold at medical marijuana dispensaries around the country for years.

In the US, cannabis is legal in 18 out of the 50 states.
