Are you ready to learn how to make your own CBD oil to be used as a supplement, in recipes, or for self-care products? This guide will give you the step-by-step process and show you how easy it is to make the best CBD oil at home.
Lay a clean tea towel down on the bottom of the crockpot. This will create a buffer between your mason jars and the crockpot, potentially preventing any jar from moving or cracking during cooking.
Fill your crockpot with enough warm to hot water to cover the top of the mason jars you plan on using by an inch to create a water bath.
Place the digital instant-read thermometer into the water. Start the crockpot heat on high. When a temperature of around 180°F is reached, turn the crockpot to low. Note: any temperature range of 180-190 degrees Fahrenheit will work. You may need to adjust to medium heat, depending on your crockpot.
While the water bath is heating in the crockpot, measure decarb the CBD flower. Simply break the flower into smaller pieces, put it in a mason jar, and place that in the oven at 240° F for 90 minutes. Click here, for a full CBD decarboxylation tutorial, if needed. Record how much flower you used, in grams, so you can calculate your final potency at the end.
After decarboxylation, remove the jar from the oven. When it is cool enough to handle, open the lid and put your oil of choice inside. You may need more than one jar if you are making a big batch. If you are using more than one jar, evenly divide the ingredients between the jars for more consistent dosing.
If you plan on using sunflower lecithin, add it to the mason jars now.
Wipe the rim of the jars with a clean towel, and add the lid. Tighten the metal ring to finger-tip tightness. It should be tight, but not too tight.
Carefully place the jar into the hot water bath, put the crockpot lid on, and leave it alone to cook for 4 hours. You want to maintain a temperature of around 180-190°F the entire time. If you don't have a lid, aluminum foil will work.
After the 4-hour cooking time, carefully remove the jars from the water bath and allow them to cool enough to handle. You are now done with the crockpot step and can discard the water bath.
Prepare a straining area with new, clean mason jars and a strainer, paper filter, cheesecloth or French Press. Pour the contents of the mason jar through the strainer to separate the plant-matter from the infused oil.
Save the leftover cannabis pulp for use in future recipes. Then return the prepared CBD oil to whatever jar you would like to store it in, like an amber glass jar with a dropper.
Storage Instructions: Store the prepared CBD oil in a cool, dry, dark place at room temperature. The shelf life will depend on a variety of factors including what type of oil you used and how much moisture was in your flower. The CBD hemp oil will last longer if stored in the refrigerator and even longer if stored in the freezer. The lower temperature will help to preserve the potency of your product.
