CBD oil or also known as Cannabidiol is an alternative way of treating numerous diseases such as: cancer, epilepsy, chronic pain, nausea, arthritis, lack of appetite, muscle pain, insomnia, asthma, neuropathic pain, osteoporosis, Parkinson’s and many more.
Cannabis oil is a concentrated and sticky substance that is derived from the cannabis plant. It is actually derived from the resin of the cannabis flowers also known as marijuana. You should always keep in mind that CBD does not have psychoactive effects and does not alter your perception.
What are the benefits of making your own CBD oil?
Although you can buy Pure CBD or Cannabidiol from some internet sites (of course if it is legal in your country), you can always make it at home. If you want to know how to make CBD oil at home or what are the benefits of making it on your own, here is what you need to know.
- Quality control: You can always regulate the amounts you put in your medicine and also, you can choose what to put in.
- Internal or external use: You can simply make CBD oil which will treat burns, local pain, moles etc. or you can make it edible.

How to make CBD Oil?
If you don’t know how to make CBD oil, you can follow our instructions. We will tell you exactly which ingredients you will need as same as the whole process of making this CBD oil.
- 1 Cup of quality oil such as: virgin oil, coconut oil or almond oil
- 14 grams of organic hemp CBD buds and leaves
With a coffee blender blend the buds, stems and leaves of the hemp plant. Place the hemp in a jar and cover it with any of the previously mentioned oils. Place the lid carefully and tight. Place a washrag in a small saucepan and then place the jar in it. Put two or three inches of water in the pan and boil it on 200 degrees. Bring the water to its boiling point and leave it this way for approximately 3 hours. You can definitely add more water, in case you notice that the level gets low. As the process is still going on, shake the jar a couple of time during these 3 hours of boiling, but be very careful because the jar will be burning hot!
After 3 hours turn off the oven and cover the pot with a towel. Leave the jar to dry for about 3 hours and then repeat the whole process again. After repeating the process, let the jar sit in the pot and cover it with a towel. Leave it that way the whole night.
This process should be repeated 2 or possibly 3 times in the following days. If you don’t have time or simply don’t want to do this several times, you can still use the oil. But, the more times you repeat the process the stronger your oil will be.
Now you know how to make CBD oil at home and you also know its benefits. Before taking this medicine for any medical reason, you should always consult with a medical person that will give you an advice on the daily dose.
