Commercial production of CBD oil is a refined and industrial process, replete with high-tech CO2 extraction equipment and razor-thin profit margins.
Creating your own CBD oil can be an empowering experience.
Making CBD-Infused Olive Oil: Why Olive?
Anyway, you’ll want to cook your water and olive oil mixture for around 30 minutes, until it looks like most of the water has evaporated away and the cannabis has begun floating to the top. Once this happens, you can move on to the final stage!
Once your CBD oil has finished extracting the cannabinoids from the cannabis buds, you need to let the whole thing cool. Wait until it reaches room temperature (so you don’t burn yourself!) and then strain the infusion (using a fine-mesh sieve) into a convenient storage receptacle, like a Tupperware jar with a lid.
The key temperature you want to avoid reaching is 300˚F, as is this is where many of the cannabinoids will start to evaporate and dissipate into the air, instead of into your olive oil.
Disadvantages of Supercritical CO 2 Extraction
-Carbon dioxide extraction is an industrial process, making it very expensive
-Requires expertise to perform properly
After decarboxylation, the plant matter is mixed with olive oil and then heated on the stove for a few hours. the CBD, other cannabinoids and essential terpenes will combine with the fat in the oil to form an infused product. Finally, the mixture is cooled and then filtered to remove the residual plant material.
Advantages of solvent extraction
-Inexpensive and requires relatively little equipment
-Solvent CBD extracts have a certain degree of purity
-Easy to scale up for commercial production
Disadvantages of solvent-free extraction
-Low and impractical yields
-No control over purity, minimum level of CBD
-CBD extracts contain plant matter and unwanted cannabinoids
Disadvantages of olive oil extraction
-Little control over the final extract
-Low and unreliable CBD content compared to more specialized methods
-Unsuitable for commercial sale
Olive Oil CBD Extraction
First of all, to extract olive oil at home, you need to make sure that the plant material has been decarboxylated. In short, this means that it has undergone the process of activating acidic cannabinoids through heat. Of course, this happens when you smoke or vape, but it can also happen if you put it in the oven.
Disadvantages of solvent extraction
-Working with solvents can cause injury if not used correctly, they are highly flammable
-Oil can be contaminated with solvents, which are dangerous and still contaminated by end users
-Higher temperatures can make it necessary for some terpenes and other smaller compounds

Since the life of oil is limited, we recommend using small amounts and most important, keeping it in a tightly closed glass container and in a cool place.
