Besides being an anti-inflammatory agent, CBD also has strong antioxidant effects. By inhibiting the activity of free radicals and minimizing the harmful effects of external factors on the skin, CBD coconut oil may help prevent skin damage and wrinkling. It could also help maintain skin elasticity and prevent overall dullness.

CBD is a known source of vitamins, proteins, minerals, and fatty acids that maintain healthy skin. Particularly, it contains vitamins A and D, which support skin repair and skin cell growth while inhibiting the excessive production of surface oils, keeping your skin smooth and supple.

Next, place the coconut oil on the slow cooker, double-boiler, or saucepan and allow it to melt. Add the ground hemp plant to the oil and leave the mixture to warm on low heat. This allows for the decarboxylation of the cannabinoids without destroying any active ingredients or compounds.

Soothing and Calming the Skin

CBD coconut oil can be added to a fruit or veggie smoothie to create a creamy texture and add additional nutrients. The fatty acids in coconut oil make it easy to digest and absorb, unlike other oils.

First, grind the hemp plant. You can choose to include the entire plant or just the flower. Just remember that anything tiny will go through the strainer and find its way into the finished product. A good rule of thumb is to avoid grinding the hemp plant into a fine powder.

Keep in mind that your CBD-infused coconut oil’s shelf life is about two months, but can be extended with refrigeration.

Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is among the many cannabinoids present in the cannabis Sativa plant. Unlike Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), another cannabinoid in the cannabis plant, CBD is a non-psychoactive compound and doesn’t result in the ‘high’ associated with THC and marijuana use. As such, CBD products offer a legally-permissible way to enjoy the potential benefits of its use. So, how can you make CBD oil with coconut oil? Read on to find out!

Depending on their strain, cannabis may contain large or relatively low amounts of CBD. When you make CBD oil, choose a strain with a high CBD content so that you can extract the most beneficial compounds into your homemade oil.

We used the Ardent Flex for making this CBD oil. With multiple settings, you can use it to activate CBD as well as similar compounds. And, you can also use it to make herbal infusions. Save $30 with code NOURISHED.

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.

In order to make CBD oil, you need to extract cannabidiol from hemp first. Further, you need to activate through a process called decarboxylation. The compounds in cannabis plants aren’t active or bioavailable on their own; rather, they’re activated through heat which is why the plant is traditionally smoked.

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 use CBD oil to reduce inflammation, soothe pain, or improve their body’s response to stress. And it’s super easy to make at home, too. Plus you can use healthy fats and you’ll know exactly what you’re putting into your bottle, avoiding the refined oils and additives that commercial producers sometimes add.
