This is not an edible or anything like that but we decided more and more people are wanting to use CBD oil and here is a reasonably quick way to make your own using CBD Isolate to do it with.
We are going to format this like any other recipe on the site but it’s going to be a bit different just because of what wer’e making here.
As far as what oil to use you can use any MCT Oil or even Olive Oil. We do not recommend that you use coconut oil but as long as you use one that is a made to be a true oil and will not harden at room temp it should work fine.
You definitely do not have to make your own CBD Oil there are plenty readily available but if you’re like me and you like to dabble in knowing how to make things as well as knowing exactly what is in your medicine then this is the CBD Oil recipe for you!
Your homemade CBD oil can be applied directly onto your body to ease sore muscles, itchiness, or chronic pain. If the texture of the oil is not to your liking, you can also mix some CBD oil into a cream or salve and apply it the same way you usually would.
Add 1 cup of your carrier oil to a pot. Put the pot on the stove, on low heat, and wait for the oil to simmer. You’ll know it’s ready when it starts to form small bubbles on the bottom of the pot. Then, crush 1 gram of your CBD crystals or concentrate into a powder form, and put the concentrate into the pot. Now, stir the mixture until the CBD has completely dissolved. To know your CBD is completely dissolved, there should be no more powder or chunks of crystal in the oil. If you notice that your crystals are not dissolving entirely, you can also use a cheesecloth to strain the oil and remove the excess crystals.
Making CBD oil at home is actually a lot easier than it might seem. Once you understand the basics and have the right tools at your disposal, there’s not much standing in your way from creating your own personal batch of the good stuff.
The Benefits of Making Your Own CBD Oil
Once you have the CBD content, it’s time to choose a carrier oil. Depending on your preferences, you can select virtually any type of oil, but most people use either coconut oil, olive oil, or canola oil. If you want to use this CBD orally, it’s best to choose a carrier oil that you won’t mind tasting. If your main priority is for topical use, coconut oil works great on the skin and is not as pore-clogging as canola oil or olive oil.
If you don’t want to consume the oil directly, you can mask the taste and texture by cooking with it. The same way that you would use THC oil to make edibles like brownies and cookies, you can do the same with your THC oil. You can incorporate CBD oil into virtually any recipe that calls for oil. Depending on the quantity of what you’re cooking, you can swap out a few tablespoons of CBD oil with the cooking oil the recipe calls for.
We’ve highlighted the benefits of making your own CBD oil, but the DIY route isn’t for everybody. Some downsides come with taking this process into your own hands, including missing out on professional oil extraction, fewer flavor and taste options, and a steep learning curve for first-timers.
We mentioned choosing a carrier oil that supports how you want to use the CBD you create. All four of the carrier oils we recommended (MCT, coconut, canola, olive) are edible, making any of them an excellent choice for adding CBD to your food or drink or taking the CBD orally. The benefits of CBD oil are endless, so you can use the oil you’ve made in a variety of ways.
