Now that you know the “how,” let’s talk a little bit about the “why.”
Turn off the stove and let the mixture cool down in the same pot. Once the oil is cool, then you can transfer the oil into another container and store it at room temperature.
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.
The Benefits of Making Your Own CBD Oil
When stored at room temperature, CBD oil can last at least two months. If you want to extend its shelf life, you can also keep it in the fridge.
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.
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.
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.
CBD Isolate is 99% pure Cannabidiol derived entirely from hemp oil that was extracted from industrial hemp. Our isolate comes in crystalline (powdered) form making it extremely easy to work with as an ingredient.
CBD isolate has already been activated (decarboxylated), which means that it doesn’t need to be heated prior to use. This gives isolate more versatility than other CBD extracts. CBD Isolate can be ingested, taken sublingually, or mixed with other ingredients.
