Vegetable oil with cannabis

Interesting stuff to read. Keep it up.

Hemp seed oil has excellent nutritional and cosmetic properties. A peculiarity of this vegetable oil is that it contains all the essential fatty acids for humans, and in the correct and optimal proportions; for example, the Omega 3 / Omega 6 ratio found in seeds is close to 1:3, as we can see in this composition:

Hi Sharky, thanks for your comment and question. You’re right about the burning effect of Ethanol tinctures, which I know from personal experience can be very unpleasant. Olive, Sesame or Coconut Oils are all great alternatives to use as a carrier for the cannabinoids. A basic and not-particularly-concentrated tincture can be made by simply cooking cannabis in Olive Oil, it will perform an efficient extraction, capturing the full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes and waxes. This method has a few slight disadvantages, the first is that it can’t be reduced down into a more concentrated form, so doses will have to be higher, secondly the potency will be something of an unknown, meaning that dosages will have to be established via bioassay, ie trying it out and seeing how it affects you, then adjusting the dose accordingly. Lastly, Olive Oil is perishable so doesn’t last a very long time. If you’d like to have a more precise idea of the cannabinoid content of your tincture, then you can perform an Ethanol extraction and then once all the alcohol has peen evaporated you can infuse the resulting concentrate into your carrier oil of choice, and by weighing the extract and the oil, you can achieve the precise concentration required, which will greatly facilitate dosing. It also makes it really easy to get the same results every time you make the tincture. This method also has its disadvantages, the process takes time, and it’s difficult to retain the terpenes in the extraction during the evaporation process, so it’s not what I’d call a full-spectrum extraction for an entourage effect, although cannabinoid levels will be relatively high. Of course, this is easily remedied by adding a few drops of terpenes to your tincture, giving a flavour of your choice. A more natural option would be to make Rosin, a terpene and cannabinoid-rich method of extraction that doesn’t involve using solvents like alcohol. It’s my personal preference when it comes to extractions, and can be carried out with as little equipment as a hair-straightener and oven parchment! It can then be combined with your selected carrier oil, just like with the QWET extraction. Remember that in both cases, the extraction will need to be decarbed to activate the THC before being mixed with the oil. I hope that’s helped, all the best and happy extracting!

Hemp oil is often confused with CBD oil, mostly due to inconsistencies in the definition of hemp. The amount of THC allowed in hemp from a regulatory perspective is generally between 0.2 and 1% THC, depending on what country you are in. The EU has the limit set lowest at 0.2% THC, the US has a max of 0.3%, and some countries like Switzerland permit hemp to contain up to 1% THC.

THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is one of at least 144 cannabinoids found in the plant.

Some cannabis oils may even be made with lesser-utilized parts of the plants like stems, or may contain a mix of oils, such as hemp seed oil blended with another carrier oil. With all of these variables to consider, distinguishing between high quality oil made from cannabis flower and lower quality products can be challenging.

Hash oil

When crafting cannabis oils, manufacturers may use CO2 to extract cannabinoids from the plant. This method is often considered to be one of the safest ways to extract cannabis as it does not require the use of an hydrocarbon (explosive) solvent. 2

One thing to keep in mind is that because of the lack of regulation of CBD products, there is not an ironclad set of requirements for a product to be considered full spectrum or broad spectrum. The lack of an official definition means that these terms can at times be misleading.

RSO is meant to be taken orally. Some like to use it sublingually and feel that this method maximizes bioavailability, though there is little scientific evidence to support this claim. However many find the taste of RSO to be extremely bitter and may opt to consume it orally instead. Its effects are extremely strong because it is often concentrated to over 60% cannabinoids or higher.

The resulting mixture is then subsequently processed and eventually integrated into other products.
