A How-To on CBD Oil Preparation



Given that CBD oil can have such a profoundly positive impact on an individual’s life, in terms of its effectiveness as a health supplement and a nutritional supplement, as well as some form of treatment for many different health conditions, it’s not uncommon for people to wonder how they might prepare CBD oil in the comfort of their own home.

If this is you, you’ve come to the right place.

Note: to make CBD oil you going to need a large amount of CBD rich cannabis. This is legal most everywhere, but there are still important steps and precautions to be taken to make sure the process goes smoothly. A good idea is to go through most of these steps outside.

Here’s a helpful list of the ingredients you’ll need to partake in this process:

  • Isopropyl alcohol at a concentration of 99.5%. If you want to process one pound of cannabis, you need to purchase 2 gallons of isopropyl alcohol.
  • A spacious freezer
  • Two stock pots made up of stainless steel or perhaps the plastic buckets (food grade).
  • A long stick made up of natural wood. It must not be treated with any chemical.
  • Bubble bag of 73 microns or muslin bag.
  • Rice cooker made up of stainless steel. Make sure that your chosen rice cooker doesn’t have a non-stick surface as it will mix certain chemicals into your produced oil.
  • Cooking thermometer.
  • Large syringes and mason jars.

What to Do

Once you compiled those ingredients, now it’s time to start the process. Here’s how you make cannabis oil:

  • Store the alcohol overnight in the freezer. Use the chilled liquid to wash the resin glands to easily separate them from the flower.
  • Take a bucket or the stock pot and store the completely dried flowers in it overnight.
  • Pour the chilled alcohol into the bucket until the flowers have been submerged.
  • Now place the entire mixture for one hour in the freezer.
  • Use the wooden stick for stirring but make sure that you are not smashing the flowers.
  • Use the second bucket or the stock pot for straining with the 73-micron bag.
  • Make use of new alcohol to repeat the rinse process and wash the flowers thoroughly.

The next step is to for this whole mixture into your handy rice cooker. What you want to do then is to patiently wait for the alcohol to boil properly. Once again, we suggest that this is something you do outside so that you can avoid accidental inhalation of dangerous fumes. The goal here is to boil off all of the alcohol, so make sure it has entirely evaporated for concluding this step.

Also remember that THC is actually activated by heat, which converts the acidic form of THC into the psychoactive form of THC. That said, don’t allow the oil to get hotter than 140°C.

The next step is to use your Mason jar. Go ahead and use this or another glass container to hold the oil. This is when you want to store the oil with a tight fitting lid.

It’s important to store it in a dark place as well, because light will interfere with the process.

In Conclusion

The key point here is this: if you’re motivated, you could do this. You can make CBD oil in your own home. And that’s interesting, because it can be so useful in so many ways.

Naturally, it will be important to familiarize yourself with your local laws. We do not encourage you doing anything that’s illegal in your area. But provided that it’s okay, if you have cannabis plants growing at home as well it certainly makes this process more manageable.

This will allow you to make cannabis oil in the comfort of your own home and have easy access to all of its interesting benefits.

This is not a difficult process, and given the huge potential of cannabis oil and CBD oil as a treatment and supplement, it’s one worth doing provided you can assemble the proper ingredients, understand the process, and are not violating any laws.


CannTrust Holdings Inc (NYSE:CTST) Penetrates Into The United States After Investing $20 Million



CannTrust Holdings Inc (NYSE:CTST), a Canadian company that produces and sells medical and recreational marijuana has announced the expansion of its business into the United States.

The Canadian firm revealed that it signed a Letter of Intent through which it will start working with Elk Grove Farming Company, LLC to access more than 3,000 hemp production acres in California. The two companies struck a joint partnership that will allow CannTrust to secure a footing in the California market which is one of the biggest cannabis markets in the U.S.

“This agreement represents another bold move for CannTrust. Our U.S. operation is expected to deliver a significant increase in low-cost production capacity,” stated CannTrust CEO Peter Aceto.

CannTrust is financially ready to tap into the U.S market

The CannTrust CEO also noted that the company will take advantage of its experience in the formulation of standardized CBD products as part of its strategy to enter the U.S market. Mr. Aceto also revealed that his company’s successful equity offering provided enough financial muscle to fuel its ambitious expansion plans.

CannTrust aims to be among the leading and trusted suppliers of high-quality, standardized CBD formulations derived from hemp. The company believes that there will be an increasing demand for high-grade CBD formulations from international retailers. It therefore makes sense to invest in processes that will add value to the end product such as genetic studies and expert growing practices to achieve the highest safety and quality standards.

Elk Grove and CannTrust will each have 50% ownership in their joint operations. Elk Grove is an ideal partner for the endeavor because it has years of farming experience in a variety of products. Its focus includes products designed for crop protection, supply, and input. Its operations are distributed across California, which means that the groundwork has already been laid for the partnership. It will thus be easier for the CannTrust to penetrate into the California market.

Elk Grove executive Morgan Houchin stated that his company was excited about the partnership with CannTrust. He added that his firm’s experience in farming operations will be a great combination with CannTrust’s experience in creating class-leading formulations.
