Don’t have access to CBD flowers? Don’t worry! Using CBD crystals to make your own CBD oil is much easier and less messy.
Making your own supply of CBD oil has many advantages. It can save you a lot of money in the long-run, and is a very valuable skill to learn. It also means you know exactly what ingredients have been used and the precise amount that it contains. However, making your own oil from scratch requires specific equipment, enough space, and a lot of work. It involves sourcing high-CBD flowers, extracting the constituents using alcohol or CO₂, winterising, refining, and purifying.
There is a way to make your own CBD oil that requires almost no equipment, and the end result is almost instant. Using CBD crystals removes the hassle of extracting the cannabinoid from raw plant material yourself. Instead, this work has already been done, and what’s left is 99% pure CBD crystals that can easily be added to various different products, including oils.
WHAT ARE CBD CRYSTALS?
99% Pure CBD Crystals represent the very essence of CBD. This pure white substance is extracted from cannabis flowers using state-of-the-art CO₂ technology before being separated from phytonutrients, other cannabinoids, terpenes, and lipids via a second purification process. This thorough procedure ensures as much CBD is removed and isolated from the flowers as possible, with the end result being 99% purity.
The remaining 1% is comprised of residual terpenes such as myrcene, limonene, and humulene. These aromatic molecules are responsible for the recognisable scents and flavours of the cannabis plant. They are known to work in a synergistic manner with cannabinoids such as CBD in what’s known as the “entourage effect”.
THE ADVANTAGES OF USING CBD CRYSTALS
CBD crystals are the ultimate CBD isolate. This pure version of the cannabinoid can be infused into any product without introducing any other unwanted molecules or substances into the mix. One huge advantage of using them is their simplicity. You don’t need to make extracts like cannabutter or tinctures to add CBD into food, oils, or creams. Simply sprinkle a few crystals into the formula instead.
Additionally, CBD crystals contain absolutely no THC. Although many CBD products contain minimal levels of the psychotropic cannabinoid, it is still present. The fact that crystals contain no THC whatsoever makes them very appealing to individuals who want to take the cannabinoid, but are worried about THC showing up in mandatory drug tests for work.
The lack of THC means that CBD crystals have no psychotropic effect. They can be taken throughout the day whilst allowing users to remain clear-headed and fully functional. The concentrated nature of crystals makes them a potent product that offers much more immediate effects than other means of administration.
Crystals aren’t only used to make oil. They can be used in cooking to make anything from CBD-enriched candies and cakes to brownies and soups. They can also be used to make homemade e-liquids by combining them with a glycerine base. Alternatively, they can be loaded directly into a vape chamber and vaporized alone or in combination with other extracts and herbs.
CBD has been shown to be beneficial for skin health in multiple scientific studies by influencing the endocannabinoid system in this part of the body. Adding CBD crystals to skincare products can give them a vitalising boost.
CBD crystals can also be placed under the tongue for an immediate dose delivered directly into the bloodstream.
HOW TO MAKE CBD OIL WITH CRYSTALS
Oil is by far one of the most popular ways to consume CBD. It can be made with ease by mixing crystals with a carrier oil and adding this combination into a dropper bottle. Below is a simple set of instructions for making your own CBD oil using crystals.
To make your own CBD oil, you’ll first need 500mg of 99% Pure CBD Crystals. You’ll also need a carrier oil to suspend the crystals in as CBD is lipophilic and absorbs into fat. Olive oil is a good choice and also contains healthy fats that add further nutrients to the oil. MCT oil is another option that, as well as being flavourless and odourless, serves as an instant source of energy for the brain. You’ll also need an oral syringe, 30ml dropper bottle, a spoon, and a funnel.
- First of all, you’ll need to decide how strong you want your oil to be. In these directions, we’ll be adding 500mg of CBD crystals to 30ml of oil, which will result in a concentration of 16.6mg of CBD per millilitre.
- Next, it’s time to add the CBD crystals into the dropper bottle. Place the funnel over the bottle opening and use the spoon to add the crystals into the funnel.
- Use the oral syringe to measure out the desired quantity of oil. Withdraw the oil from its container and inject it into the dropper bottle until the 30ml bottle is full.
- Screw the dropper cap onto the bottle and shake the mixture vigorously for 60 seconds.
HOW TO USE CBD CRYSTAL OIL
CBD crystal oil can be taken much like a tincture. Place it under the tongue for rapid absorption, or swallow it for a longer onset and prolonged effects. You can also add the oil to pretty much any recipe or drink you can think of. Try it out in tea, coffee, and smoothies for a therapeutic touch.
