Quick Intro to CBD
Before we get into how CBD is made we will give you a quick introduction on what it is and what people use this stuff for. For starters CBD is a component of the Cannabis sativa family, hemp.
CBD has become a very popular product probably because of the medical benefits for epilepsy, pain, anxiety, parkinson’s disease, and other things along that line. The FDA has officially allowed CBD to treat those conditions and is encouraging people to try CBD out for themselves.
Plant and Harvest
If you’re going to make CBD oil from hemp then the first thing you do is plant and harvest but if you aren’t interested in planting then you can move on to the next step. But, if you are interested, stick around.
When you start planting you would want to start somewhere between the third week of May to the third week of June. Harvest time is whenever your hemp plants get big or when things start getting cold. Unlike corn and wheat each and every hemp plant has to be carefully monitored and cannot be put in an excessive amount of water. Generally hemp plants like the sunny hot weather.
Now let’s get into how CBD oil is made, Co2 extraction. Co2 extraction is the next thing you need to do if you want a beautiful CBD oil. This extraction method is the best way to get the oil but there are other ways that some people attempt to use ethanol to extract their cbd but that leaves remains and is not a very good extraction method. The most commonly used machines for this job are the supercritical Co2 extractors.
The first chamber of the extractor is first filled with the plant material and then is later filled with high pressured Co2. The Co2 then absorbs the oils of the hemp biomass and is then put into a different chamber where the Co2 will be removed essentially leaving you with an unrefined crude oil. Co2 is the first big step when learning how to make cbd hemp oil.
Short Path Distillation
Wanting to learn how to make your own cbd oil? Well, there is a way to do it without having to use heavy equipment but it is not the most effective way to do it. The process involves coconut oil or alcohol, hemp flower, a stove, and a cheese cloth. The way we describe how to make cbd oil will be a bit more complicated to do since you don’t know exactly how to do it.
Although it doesn’t sound too complicated, essentially what happens is certain components of the hemp oil will evaporate into a different container and what’s left is CBD oil. Depending on what type of oil you want, you’re going to boil it more or less.
