CBD Vape oil has been used for a long time to help people cope with different conditions, to help them relax, fall asleep faster, and to relieve pain. If you’ve been using this liquid for a long time, you are probably wondering if you can make it at home. We have some great news for you! Making CBD oil is not a difficult process, and with some patience, you can produce your own liquid and enjoy its benefits.
Follow our 2023 DIY guide to learn what you need to get before you start the process, and how to make the best CBD Vape oil you’ve ever tried before.
What do you need?
To make CBD Vape oil in your home, you need some basic tools that you probably already have at home, or you can easily purchase them in any store. Most of these items are inexpensive, and if you cannot find something on this list, you can easily order them online, or talk to the store where you purchase your plants.
The first thing you’d need is a gram-scale, so you can measure the powder and the oil you produce afterward. Even if you don’t have a gram-scale, you can easily order it online and they don’t cost more than five dollars. Then you would need a funnel, sterile containers, and bottles, a syringe with a blunt tip, mortar and pestle, pot and a heat source.
These are some of the basic things you would need, and some of them can be replaced with other items in your home. The only things that are a must are sterile containers and bottles.
When it comes to the ingredients, you need several things that you can purchase from the store where you buy your weed. The first ingredient you’d need to make your CBD Vape Oil is a pure CBD isolate. You’d need up to one gram of this and no more than 40 milliliters of vape or carrier fluid. For this, you’d need propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin, and they should be in the portion of 60:40 or 80:20.
The portion depends on you and your taste. The first option will be cheaper and it feels like most of the other fluids you can find on the market, and the second one will give you a richer, and a sweeter taste. If you want to use this fluid with a portable device, and if you want to smoke outside, then it is better to make it less strong, and less noticeable. However, this is all a personal preference, so you are free to test things out and see which option is better for you.
You will also need about 1ml of terpenes. This is to enchase the natural flavors of the plant and to give the end product a better flavor. Last, but not least, you’d need flavorings and for this part, you can also use some natural ingredients, and you can even use a CBD vape juice.
How to make it?
This may sound like a complex process, but the reality is, you only need to follow directions the first few times you make it. Later on, you will have no problems making our oil on your own, and you will also learn how to play around with flavors and create your own fluid.
The first thing you need to do is to crush about one gram of the pure isolate into a fine powder. Use the scale to measure it, and you can also put half a gram, depending on your personal preference. Then you need to prepare the carrier fluid and add the terpenes. You should use the syringe and be really precise when you measure the ingredients and according to Miami Rave CBD, it is best if you let the CBD Vape Additive mix with the fluid for about two days. This will let them distribute evenly and you will get a better liquid.
Now take the funnel and place it inside the sterile bottle. Slowly pour the vape juice you just made and add the crystalline powder you made in the first step. After you seal the bottle tightly, you need to shake it for a few minutes so that everything distributes evenly and the powder dissolves in the liquid.
You are almost done! The next thing you should do is get the pot and fill it with water. The level of the water should be just above the level of the fluid in the bottle when you put it inside it. Slowly heat the water in the pot, and you should put it on medium heat, so you don’t damage the liquid.
When the water is warm, but not boiling, you should place the bottle in the warm pot. Hold the bottle and make sure it is positioned straight. If needed, use a heat-protection glove, so you don’t burn yourself. This should simmer for a while, and you should check if the bottle is getting hot. It should not be too hot for you to handle it without a glove. The fluid should mix with the powder with ease, and you don’t need to hold it in the water for more than 15 minutes. There is a different kind of equipment and tools you can use so you don’t have to hold the bottle on your own, but for the first few tries, it is better to do everything by hand.
Pour the liquid in the container, and if you used 1 gram of isolates you should get about 33 milligrams of CBD vape oil as suggested in this article that also talks about the benefits of vaping. Keep the container tightly sealed and use it when needed. Don’t forget to let the fluid dry completely before you try it.
Make sure everything is measured correctly and don’t feel upset if you don’t get everything right the first time around. Play around with flavors and aromas and you will learn how to make the perfect juice for your personal preferences. If you need help, you can always ask for additional information or guidance from the experts who sell separate ingredients.
