CBD oil, which is made from the leaves, flowers, \’\’and stalks of hemp plants, but mostly the flowers, differs from hemp seed oil or hemp oil. So today we are talking about CBD oil. You can easily purchase CBD oil tincture at a variety of locations for a reasonable price, but in the case you are wanting CBD oil from a particularly hemp flower strain, then making your own is probably the way you will want to do that.

Should I Extract My Own CBD Oil – The Preparation of it All
Make sure you have a large unobstructed space on our counter to work \’\’and also be sure you have good ventilation to rid the kitchen of unpleasant odors or fumes.
This may not be the easiest DIY project to do, so may sure you dedicate a large portion of a day to get everything together \’\’and so you do not feel pressured to get it finished. Below is a list of ingredients as well as equipment that you will need for your adventure.
- 3-10 grams of a particular CBD hemp flower
- 28 grams hemp flower strain with the cannabinoids \’\’and terpenes in it that you are looking for.
- 450 grams carrier oil of carrier oil like coconut oil, olive oil, or butter

Should I Extract My Own CBD Oil – It’s About the Steps
Considering Step 1 – Put your hemp flower in the grinder to reduce to a course-fine consistency but not dust in or to have the best consistency for maximum CBD extraction.
Considering Step 2 – The next process is to decarboxylate the hemp flower. Line a baking tray with parchment paper \’\’and spread the ground-up flowers evenly onto it. Place in an oven heated to 225ºF to bake for an hour. Decarboxylation is to convert the inactive CBDA into active CBD but without losing any of the other natural compounds like the valuable terpenes. It will be lightly brown \’\’and crisp at the end of the 60 minutes.
Considering Step 3 — Next, let’s look at how to mix the flowers \’\’and the oil. That is how the extraction process works. Take your double boiler \’\’and place both the flowers \’\’and the carrier oil in the top of the double boiler. Then fill the bottom of the double boiler with about half full of water. Heat ONLY to a simmer. If the simmer passes 150º C, the terpenes will evaporate, \’\’and you do not want this. After about 2–3 hours, you will have a product looking brownish-green.
Considering Step 4 — Carefully remove the top of the double boiler with hemp \’\’and oil from the heated water \’\’and put on potholder on the counter. Place the coffee filter over the top of your dark glass jar. Pour the mixture into the container. Make sure as much drains into your glass jar. Seal the glass jar \’\’and store in a cool, dry dark place.
Should I Extract My Own CBD Oil – All About Storing It
It is quite a process to make your CBD oil tincture so you want to be sure \’\’and store it properly so that it will last as long as possible. For optimal results, store your CBD-infused oil in the refrigerator with a clear label on the container in the case more than just you are using that refrigerator.
After you use the CBD oil tincture always re-seal the container \’\’and replace it in the refrigerator as soon as possible. The reason for this is the CBD oil tincture may deteriorate more quickly when exposed to oxygen.
