So, cannabis sativa has two primary species (children). They’re hemp and marijuana. CBD, short for cannabidiol, uses the stalks, leaves, and other components of the cannabis plant to create an oil that relieves pain and calms anxiety, because we can all use a little bit more calm and less anxiety. Where it starts to get confusing is that hemp oil and CBD oil are often used interchangeably. Hemp seed oil comes from the seeds of the cannabis plant, and has another set of unique benefits. Both use a part of the cannabis plant that has very low (almost 0%) THC levels. Which is basically not even enough to get any kind of party started.

Now that we have the sibling dynamic squared away, hemp seed oil has a huge list of benefits. In addition to its rich vitamins (D, B, and E), it’s packed with omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Hemp seed oil is also an anti-inflammatory food, similar to turmeric. Thanks to the fatty acids in hemp seed oil, it’s helpful for skin conditions including acne and rosacea. An added bonus, if you need to polish things up around the house, is that a mixture of hemp seed oil with a tangerine essential oil can give your wooden furniture a refreshing treatment. It’s time to throw those not-so-eco-friendly, petroleum based products out the window.
With CBD oil steadily on the rise, it’s no surprise that hemp is getting a lot of attention. Hemp has a big reputation, and is usually used synonymously with marijuana. Though these two come from the same plant (think of them as really fun siblings, their mom being cannabis sativa), their uses are completely different.
Once the water is boiling, the cannabinoid-assimilation process has begun. This can be quite a slow process, taking a few hours, although it’s much faster than the first recipe. For the best possible results, we recommend continuing this process for two to three hours, mixing every now and then. In order to get perfect results, try and keep the temperature at a stable 100°C. You can use a kitchen thermometer for this purpose.
One of the best ways of ingesting cannabis oil is raw. If it’s used to fry anything, it loses all of its properties in as far as cannabinoids due to high temperatures. We recommend using it as a dressing for salads, making sure to test it out beforehand to test its strength and how much you should use.
Everyone should be able to make the most of cannabis’s incredible properties without needing to smoke it. We’re going to show you how to make cannabis oil. Its properties may vary depending on the cannabis used to make it, which can be THC or CBD dominant. Either way, the recipe is the same.

Once you’ve strained your cannabis you’ll need to try and get it to lose as much water as possible. In order to keep all of its cannabinoids intact, we recommend covering a flat surface with non-aromatic kitchen paper and placing your cannabis on top. This allows the kitchen paper to absorb any leftover water without needing to press your weed down.
Before you start taking cannabis oil, whether it’s occasionally or daily, you will need to do a few tests to see how potent it is. We recommend trying out a couple of drops and waiting for a few hours to see if its effects are too soft or too hard. If it’s too potent you can add in ¼ of normal oil and shake well to mix it up. You can repeat this process as much as possible.
Olive oil is a product that many people consume as part of their daily diet due to its many health benefits, but what about cannabis oil? Cannabis oil doesn’t generally figure in many people’s diets, especially not those that don’t consume cannabis, although this is slowly changing. Thanks to the recent wave of legalizations around the world and the investigations being done, we’re finding out more about cannabis’ properties and its amazing benefits when used correctly. That’s why today we’re going to teach you how to make cannabis oil.
Place your weed in a large pot and add enough water to cover the cannabis. Once it begins to boil, lower the heat setting to the lowest and keep it there for 10 minutes, stirring every now and then.
