Olive oil, just like almond oil, is an excellent solvent that allows extracting and preserving the resin present in the trichomes, which is loaded with cannabinoids. Another potential benefit of this method is that it leaves no chemical residues in the final product, unlike other extraction methods.

To develop cannabis oil rich in quality CBD there are a number of factors you should consider:

  1. Quality of the raw material : the cannabis from which you are going to make the oil has to be of high quality and free of chemicals or toxic products that could harm your health. To do this we recommend that cannabis flowers come from organic cultivation, free of pesticides or chemical fertilisers.
  2. Oil and storage: We recommend using first-pressing organic virgin olive oil and keeping the final product in small glass containers.
  3. CBD rich varieties: to benefit from the therapeutic properties of CBD you should choose strains containing this cannabinoid. We recommend you:
  • Purple Orange CBD with a ratio 1:2, THC: CBD 5% to 10%
  • OG Kush CBD with a ratio 1:1, 10% THC and CBD 10%

What properties does the CBD have?

The therapeutic benefits of CBD or cannabidiol have been extensively tested by various scientific studies indicating that this substance, present in the composition of Sativa Cannabis, has the following medicinal properties.

  • Anticonvulsant properties
  • It is effective against muscle spasticity
  • Neuroprotective
  • Anxiolytic and antipsychotic
  • Analgesic and anti-inflammatory

Some studies also indicate that cannabis can contribute to the treatment of psoriasis, as its D9-THCA, CBN and CBD inhibit keratinocyte proliferation, one of the consequences of this disease.

How to make cannabis olive oil rich in CBD?

Since the life of oil is limited, we recommend using small amounts and most important, keeping it in a tightly closed glass container and in a cool place.

To prepare the oil you will need.

  • 5 Grams of Purple Orange CBD marijuana buds
  • 50 Ml of organic olive oil
  • 1 Glass container with lid
  • a container vessel
  • 1 colander
  • 1 pot

Follow these simple steps.

  1. Half fill a saucepan with water and heat slowly over a low heat.
  2. Pour the olive oil into the saucepan and add the marijuana buds. Since water cannot exceed a temperature of 100 degrees Celsius, with this method you will ensure that the temperature of the cannabis does not exceed 150 degrees, which is the temperature at which some cannabinoids begin to evaporate.
  3. With the help of a wooden spatula, stir the cannabis flowers and mix with the oil.
  4. Leave the saucepan over a very low heat for an hour, stirring the contents occasionally.
  5. After 60 minutes, remove the saucepan from the heat and allow to cool.
  6. When the contents have cooled, place the saucepan in the refrigerator and leave to cool until the oil solidifies. In this way you will be able to easily separate this from the water, which will remain in liquid form.
  7. Once you have separated the oil, leave it outside the refrigerator at room temperature so that it returns to its liquid state.
  8. Finally, sieve the resulting oil through a fine sieve to remove the woody material.

How to Make CBD Oil

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.

If you’re looking to make cbd oil, you’ll need just two ingredients: hemp and a carrier oil like olive oil. The result is a vibrantly herbaceous infused oil with soothing anti-inflammatory properties.

What is CBD oil?

CBD oil is a non-intoxicating herbal remedy made from hemp flower. 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.

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).

To make CBD oil at home, you’ll need to follow a simple two-step process: decarboxylation and infusion. While it sounds complex, decarboxylation is a simple process of precision heating that activates beneficial compounds in cannabis. The second step, infusion, releases those compounds into a carrier oil. Infused oils are easy to take, and oil makes these compounds easier for your body to absorb, too.

Activating 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.

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.

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.

Where to Find a Decarboxylator. Commercial CBD oil producers use huge decarboxylators capable of activating the cannabinoids in several pounds of cannabis; however, if you’re making it at home, you’ll need a smaller version.

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.

What you’ll need to make CBD oil

To make CBD oil you only need two primary ingredients: hemp and a carrier oil. Hemp flowers that are high in CBD will yield the best results, and if you can’t find them locally, you can order them online. After decarboxylating the hemp flowers, you can then use them to make a CBD-infused oil.

High-CBD hemp flower

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.

Where to Find High-CBD hemp flower. Since hemp flower is non-intoxicating with negligible to no-detectable THC content, it is legal on a federal level. You may be able to find it locally; however, your best bet is to purchase it online.

Sacred Smoke Herbals sells high-CBD hemp flower that’s organically grown, lab-tested, and available in all 50 states. Use coupon code NOURISHED15 for 15% off.

Finding the right carrier oil

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.

I recommend trying extra virgin olive oil because it has good flavor and high antioxidant levels. Even more, research by ardent shows that olive oil is more successful at extracting the plants’ beneficial compounds.

Making CBD oil at home is easy, and you need only a few ingredients. It's a two-step process that involves heating and then infusion into a carrier oil.
