So there you have it: two simple recipes for preparing your own CBD oil. All from the comfort of your own home. It is challenging to create our formulation, and why you should experiment with CBD until you find what you prefer. It takes time, and you should enjoy your CBD discovery.
Ideally, you should consume CBD oil in its raw state. When you use it for cooking, the heat will end up killing the oil’s cannabinoids. Still, to get the full benefits of this oil, you can use it to dress your salads or titrate with tincture under your tongue. And, at the right temperatures, you can also use CBD oil to create various baked CBD edibles.
With the cost of medical care on the rise, a trend that doesn’t look like it will change any time soon, why not teach yourself how to make CBD oil from the comfort of your home. You’ll enjoy all the health benefits of CBD and learn a valuable skill! Again, this is for your understanding of CBD and how it is made. This article is not intended to be an instructional piece, but an educational one.
Recipe 2: Making CBD Oil Using Olive Oil
Not interested in consuming your CBD oil? Try applying cannabis oil topically to relieve your muscle aches! You can also add CBD oil to creams or other lotions for added benefits.
If you are looking for an oil concentrate that has little to no amounts of THC, and more cannabidiol, use hemp flowers. Remember that THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid compound that gives one a ‘high’. Hemp flowers only contain trace amounts of THC, meaning that they produce more potent CBD oil concentrate.
Ongoing research strongly suggests that CBD has immense health benefits. At one point, we all get ill. Or, if not, we know a loved one who is suffering from a chronic ailment without any known cure. Thankfully, many current cannabinoid studies show that they can be used to mitigate if not completely combat the effects of certain ailments.
If you are looking for a full-spectrum oil with cannabidiol as well as a more concentrated level of THC, you can use cannabis buds. Marijuana contains high amounts of THC and other cannabinoids. We don’t work with marijuana plants or cannabis with a dry weight THC level greater than three-tenths of one percent (0.3%).
Rather than smoking, you can activate these compounds through other means of heating. Some people bake hemp flowers in a slow oven for about an hour or use a slow cooker. These methods are inexpensive, but they’re also imprecise and may not activate all the CBD.
CBD oil is a non-intoxicating herbal remedy made from hemp flower, another is cannabis honey. It is rich in cannabidiol, a type of compound found in cannabis that has strong anti-inflammatory properties. One of CBD’s benefits is that it conveys the beneficial properties of cannabis without the high since it contains little to no THC.
Activating the CBD
A carrier oil is an oil that you use for herbal infusions. Coconut oil and MCT oil (which is derived from coconut) are popular carrier oils both in commercial and homemade CBD products.
To activate CBD efficiently and to get the most from your plant material, you’ll need a precision cooker (also known as a decarboxylator) which can maintain exact temperatures needed for the full activation of CBD and other cannabinoids. With precision heating, decarboxylators extract a higher percentage of beneficial plant compounds than cruder methods and are a worthwhile investment for anyone who takes CBD oil regularly or wants to make a consistently good product.
Many people take CBD to help combat inflammation, anxiety, or restless sleep. Some research suggests it helps protect and support nervous system health (1) and may reduce pain (2), while other research suggests it supports gut health and proper immune system function (3).
