Creating your very own CBD oils can be quite an empowering experience. You get to decide what ingredients you are going to include, how to control the entire process, and yet another advantage is that you’ll also have the pleasure of working with your hands in the creative process. Yet another advantage of creating your own CBD oils is the lack of chemicals and other industrial processes.
There are two primary methods of making oils such as these, distillation and solvent extraction process. In the distillation process, a pure alcohol is heated to the boiling point and then cooled down. The steam then goes through a cooling coil to condense the alcohol into a liquid, and then it is removed from the heating coil through a cooling fluid. When you take into account the amount of heat used and the time that it took for the steam to go through the cooling coil, the end result is pure alcohol, with no other chemicals or products in the product.
Solvent extraction is a different process than the distillation method, but the results and the product are identical. Here, pure cannabis is put into a container, and then the solution is mixed with terpenes. Terpenes are plant chemicals that have a unique effect on the human body. When mixed with the oils, the terpenes create a fragrance for the oils to absorb into the body. A unique advantage to this mixture is that the terpenes provide an analgesic effect similar to the one derived from marijuana.
Both of these methods produce a product that is similar to cannabis, but they don’t contain the THC, which makes them more interesting and different from pharmaceutical pharmaceuticals. The only major difference between the two is that the oil extraction method extracts the CBD from the cannabis without going through the process of conversion. It is believed that by going through the process of conversion, some of the other beneficial chemicals are destroyed and some of the other desired chemicals are lost. In this way, the end product is not as effective as it could be. Also, it can cause irritation in some people.
Tinctures are another extraction method that you can use to make your own oil. Similar to the carrier oils used in the distillation process, tinctures are put into a container and heated. Once the temperature goes up, CO2 is released and the tincture is made. Carrier oils are still applied onto the surface of the final product to complete the formulation.
The final product can be diluted with water and used in many different ways, depending on the needs and wants of the patient. The price of these oils is low, because they are extracted from the plant via a simple distillation process. The olive oil and coconut oil are the most popular, because they are the most widely grown plants in their respective areas. When looking for a good quality product, look for companies that offer a free trial so you can try before you buy. There are many good products out there, if you’re open to trying something new.
