Decide what type of oil you want to make
There are two main types of cannabis oil: THC oil and CBD oil. THC oil is made by extracting the THC compound from marijuana plants. CBD oil is made by extracting the CBD compound from hemp plants. Neither type of plant is psychoactive, so neither will get you high.
Choose a cannabis strain
In order to make your own cannabis oil, you’ll first need to choose a cannabis strain. Any type of cannabis plant will work, but you’ll want to use a strain that is high in THC. This is because THC is what will be converted into CBD oil. If you don’t have access to high-THC cannabis, you can also use low-THC cannabis, but it will take longer for the oil to be effective.
Once you’ve chosen your strain, you’ll need to gather some supplies. You’ll need a mason jar, a coffee filter, some kind of oil (coconut oil is a popular choice), and a source of heat (a stovetop or Crockpot will work). You’ll also need some sort of strainer (a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer will do the trick).
Now that you have your supplies, it’s time to get started! Begin by grinding up your cannabis flower using a grinder. Add the ground-up cannabis to your mason jar, then pour in your chosen oil until it covers the weed. Screw on the lid tightly, then place the jar in your crockpot or on top of your stove.
Heat the mixture gently for 3-4 hours, making sure that it never gets too hot (above 245 degrees Fahrenheit). After 3-4 hours, remove the lid and carefully strain the mixture into another container using your cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer. Congratulations – you’ve now made your very own CBD oil!
Gather your materials
You will need the following materials to make your own cannabis oil :
-1 Mason jar
-1 Wooden spoon
Decarboxylate your cannabis
To make your own cannabis oil, you’ll first need to decarboxylate your cannabis. Decarboxylation is the process of applying heat to your cannabis to activate the THC.
If you don’t decarboxylate your cannabis, you won’t be able to make effective cannabis oil. The process of decarboxylation converts THCA into THC, which is the cannabinoid that gets you high.
There are a few different ways that you can decarboxylate your cannabis. The most common method is to bake it in the oven.
To do this, preheat your oven to 240 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, spread your ground cannabis on a baking sheet and bake it for 40 minutes.
Once the 40 minutes is up, take the baking sheet out of the oven and let it cool. Your cannabis is now ready to be used in recipes!
Infuse your oil
Cannabis oil is a versatile product that can be used in many different ways. Whether you’re looking to make a simple cannabis-infused olive oil or something more complicated like Rick Simpson Oil (RSO), infusing your own oil at home is a relatively simple process.
What you’ll need:
-1 cup of carrier oil (olive, coconut, etc.)
-¼ – ½ ounce of decarboxylated cannabis (depending on desired potency)
-Slow cooker or double boiler
-Cheesecloth or coffee filter
-Container for finished product
1. Place cannabis and carrier oil in the slow cooker or double boiler.
2. Heat the mixture slowly, between 245-275 degrees Fahrenheit, for 3-4 hours. stirring occasionally.
3. Once finished heating, let the mixture cool slightly then strain through cheesecloth or coffee filter into a container.
4. Store in a cool, dark place and use as needed.
Store your oil
Store your oil in a cool, dark place. You can keep it in the fridge if you like, but it isn’t necessary. The main thing is to keep it away from heat and light. Cannabis oil will last for several months if stored properly.
