Fortunately, cannabis can be consumed in a variety of ways. Besides inhaling it, you can also ingest it in the form of edibles, tinctures, full extract resins, and infused oils. In this article, we will focus on infused oil only and explain how to make CBD oil at home.
Why Make Your Own CBD Oil?
Many online stores and dispensaries now sell CBD oil. Still, the market is highly unregulated, and a lot of companies don’t provide 3rd party testing results to prove that their products are safe. The problem? Some oils are manufactured with dangerous solvents such as butane, naphtha, or alcohol, or the hemp may have been grown using pesticides and herbicides. Since you’re likely taking CBD oil for health and wellness purposes, why take a risk? Unless you are familiar with and trust the seller and manufacturer, I would advise against purchasing CBD oil. The easiest and safest way to avoid all the unknowns is to learn how to make your own CBD oil.
There are other reasons to consider making your own CBD oil. You will save money since making your own oil will be much less expensive than purchasing it. You will also have complete control over the potency of the final product. Finally, you will have the pleasure of taking the weed you recently grew (link to my home grow piece), all the way from seed to a consumable product.
