This is a step by step guide on how to make CBD Coconut Oil. CBD Coconut Oil is great to take once or twice a day as a CBD Supplement for better well being. CBD Coconut Oil can be taken by the spoonful or put into a hot beverage and drank. I’m personally not a coffee drinker, so I just take a spoonful and let it melt in my mouth before swallowing. Many people love it in their coffee as it hydrates their lips with every sip.
Things you will need:
1: CBD Oil
2: Coconut Oil
3: Mason Jar(s) or Pyrex
5: Wooden stirring utensil
6: Parchment Paper
7: Razor Blades (not shown)
8:Temperature Gun (optional)
9: Lecithin (I prefer liquid sunflower lecithin)
10: Pure food grade D-limonene (optional)
FIRST: Preheat your oven to 250 degrees F. Put a cup of Coconut Oil in your oven safe container. It is difficult to measure, so I weigh it out. 216 grams of coconut oil equals one cup depending on the brand. Once the oven is preheated, put your containers with coconut oil in the oven. Wait for the oil to heat up to 250 degrees. This takes roughly 30 minutes or so. I like to use my temperature gun to check the temperature.
SECOND: Now that your coconut oil is up to temperature it is time to add the CBD Oil to it. Carefully remove your coconut oil from the oven and add your CBD oil to it. I had 24.5 grams of 70% CBD Oil extracted from a 20% CBD hemp strain called “Ma’at” and decided to split it 7 ways. I put the CBD Oil in the freezer so it would be easier to work with.
By grabbing the oil from the outside of the parchment paper, I broke it into pieces and weighed them out to 3.5 grams.
I wrapped them up and threw them back in the freezer. This helps to get a clean release from the parchment paper. Next, carefully drop the CBD Oil in the coconut oil.
Stir the CBD Oil up until it is well blended. This is accomplished rather quickly if you give the CBD Oil a minute or two to melt.
Now it’s time to put the mixture back in the oven. I like to decarboxylate my CBD Oil in the coconut oil itself. When decarboxylation takes place, CBDA is turned into CBD and C02 is released. Stir the contents every 10 minutes. You will see tiny C02 bubbles being released. Once the bubbles stop to release as quickly as before, you know you are almost done decarboxylating. It is time to pull it out of the oven. It will continue to fully decarboxylate as it cools down. If it is heated for too long, then the CBD will start to degrade into CBE (Cannabielsoin). CBE isn’t studied as much as CBD, so the benefits of it aren’t fully documented at this time. You can experiment if you like, but for now, I’m more interested in CBD.
I usually wait until the mixture cools to about 180 degrees F to add the liquid sunflower lecithin. I pour in about equal amounts of lecithin in as there is CBD oil. Consumption of lecithin is controversial (especially soy lecithin) so you can leave it out if you prefer, but lecithin aids your body in absorption for cannabinoids such as CBD (cannabidiol) so I like to use it. It may also aid in brain function.
Stir the lecithin up in the mixture.
I like to put a couple drops of pure food grade d-limonene in the mixture. I add the d-limonene when the concoction cools to about 100 degrees F to limit the degradation. I believe that d-limonene degrades into Isoprene which is toxic, so use your best judgement.
Limonene (extracted from orange peels) synergizes with CBD to strengthen these properties: anxiolytic, apoptosis of breast cancer cells, active against acne bacteria, antioxidant, decreases sebum/sebocytes, etc.
Linalool (which can be derived from lavender) is another great additive to add to CBD Coconut Oils as well. Linalool synergizes with CBD to strengthen these properties: anxiolytic, analgesic, anticonvulsant, decreases sebum/sebocytes, etc.
α-Pinene (which can be derived from pine trees) – anti-inflammatory, acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (aiding memory), effective versus MRSA, decreases sebum/sebocytes, etc.
β-Myrcene (which can be derived from hops and mango) – analgesic, blocks inflammation, blocks hepatic carcinogenesis, etc.
β-Caryophyllene (which can be derived from balck pepper) – treatment of addiction?
In conclusion, I put 3.5 grams of 70% CBD Oil into 1 cup of coconut oil (48 teaspoons). This oil was actually the non-decarboxylated form called CBDA. This is the Acid form of CBD. When CBDA is decarboxylated, it loses about 10% of its weight from releasing CO2. So, the 3.5 grams of 70% CBDA oil (3.5 X .7) = 2,450 mg of CBDA. After decarboxylation, we are left with 2,450 mg CBDA X .9 (10% weight loss) = 2,205 mg of CBD per cup of coconut oil. I prefer to ingest 1 teaspoon of oil once or twice daily. This gives us 2,205 mg of CBD / 48 teaspoon doses = 46 mg of CBD per teaspoon sized dose.
I find 40mg – 80mg of CBD to be a good starting dosage for most adults.
The finished product will solidify depending on the temperature of your house. Enjoy!
