CBD oil can be made in a variety of ways. It can also utilize various forms of CBD as well as various methods for infusion. While some methods of manufacturing CBD oil can only be done with fancy expensive equipment, many methods of making CBD oil can be safely done at home with just a few basic tools and the right instructions. CBD oil, in the simplest of terms, is a form of CBD infused into a carrier oil. Some of the most common carrier oils include coconut oil, avocado oil, and olive oil.
This oil is typically taken under the tongue, swallowed, or added to food or beverages. Additionally, some people prefer to put their CBD oil into an empty capsule so that they do not taste the CBD or carrier oil. While CBD oil can be purchased in many markets today around the world from hundreds of different manufacturers in various flavors and strengths, many love the thought of making their own CBD oil at home. Thankfully, it is quite easy to do. There are many benefits to making your own CBD oil at home as well, such as affordability and purity. Let's take a closer look at the various methods of making CBD oil.
The first method of making CBD oil that we are going to discuss is how to make CBD oil from an isolate. In order to infuse CBD isolate into a carrier oil in this method for making your own CBD oil, you will need a few tools and ingredients. These include CBD isolate, your carrier oil of choice, a clean funnel, a syringe capable of transferring liquid, an eyedropper equipped bottle for storing your CBD oil, and a scale to weigh your CBD isolate if it is not already pre-weighed.
When choosing your CBD isolate, be sure that you are purchasing from a reputable supplier that provides you with transparent access to third-party laboratory testing. This testing should not only include potency but also testing ensuring that there are no residual contaminants such as solvents or pesticides in the final product. The higher the purity of isolate you can get, the better; however, while there is a major difference in the price of 99% versus 95% pure CBD isolate, the end result only varies by a few milligrams.
Speaking of milligrams, you will want to know just how potent you want your CBD oil to be before starting this process. When you are utilizing 99% pure CBD isolate, you average about 10 mg of CBD per milliliter of CBD oil when mixing one gram of CBD isolate with 100 ml of your chosen carrier oil. If you want to have a stronger CBD oil, you would need to either add more CBD isolate or less carrier oil to find your sweet spot. Additionally, if you would like something weaker than 10 mg, you could also utilise more carrier oil or less CBD isolate.
CBD isolate is very similar in aesthetics to that of table sugar, and when placed into a liquid substance, it begins to dissolve. You can help this process by placing the lid on your bottle and placing the bottle in warm water to slightly increase the temperature of the oil, helping to melt the isolate and infuse it into your carrier oil. When using this process, you will need to remove the bottle periodically, agitate the contents, and then reheat it in the water. By doing this a few times, you can ensure that all of the isolate has dissolved into the oil. This is the simplest, most cost-effective, and safest way of making CBD oil.
The next method of making CBD oil that we are going to discuss is how to make CBD oil using a countertop botanical infusion machine. Today there is a piece of technology for just about everything, and the same can be said for making CBD oil. In the past, to make CBD oil from CBD rich leaves and bud requires some not-so-safe procedures.
Today, however, there are countertop products that allow you to easily infuse botanicals into carrier oils. Many of these countertop products simply require you to have the carrier oil of your choice and a sufficient amount of bud or leaves to decarboxylate and infuse into the oil that is rich in CBD. If you are in the UK, make sure that those buds and leaves are from an EU-approved hemp cultivar to ensure that you remain compliant with laws.
Most of these machines make it as easy as adding everything to the machine and pushing a button. Some machines, however, require that you first put your dry plant material into the machine to decarb it or decarb it external to the machine. Decarboxylation is a process that is necessary in order to activate CBD within the plant material. Other countertop infusion machines do not require that you decarb first, and you can simply add everything to the machine and push a button and wait for it to complete. These are two of the easiest, safest, and most affordable ways to make CBD oil.
However, in the UK, it is essential to remember that CBD oil must remain compliant with local laws. In the UK that means that CBD oil must not contain more than 1mg of THC. Additionally, EU regulations also state that every CBD product must contain less than 0.2% THC. This is why it is best to leave it up to the professionals and only purchase CBD oil from a licensed and compliant source that is backed by independent third party testing.
