The base for your massage oil will be a carrier oil of your choosing. Many prefer to use coconut oil as their carrier oil, but other options include jojoba oil, almond oil, and even olive oil.

If you want to thicken your massage oil for a salve or balm like consistency, you can drop ½ tablespoon of beeswax into the double boiler. Allow it to melt and stir until blended completely. You can adjust the consistency of your massage oil by adding more or less beeswax. This thickening step is optional.

What you will need :

Before use, shake your oil well. Some carrier oils, like coconut oil, might solidify at room temperature. You can warm your massage oil by running your sealed glass jar under warm water until liquid. If you added beeswax to your massage oil to create a salve, you can also warm it by rubbing it between your fingers.

A carrier oil is an oil that you use for herbal infusions. Coconut oil and MCT oil (which is derived from coconut) are popular carrier oils both in commercial and homemade CBD products.

Where to Find a Decarboxylator. Commercial CBD oil producers use huge decarboxylators capable of activating the cannabinoids in several pounds of cannabis; however, if you’re making it at home, you’ll need a smaller version.

To activate CBD efficiently and to get the most from your plant material, you’ll need a precision cooker (also known as a decarboxylator) which can maintain exact temperatures needed for the full activation of CBD and other cannabinoids. With precision heating, decarboxylators extract a higher percentage of beneficial plant compounds than cruder methods and are a worthwhile investment for anyone who takes CBD oil regularly or wants to make a consistently good product.

To make CBD oil at home, you’ll need to follow a simple two-step process: decarboxylation and infusion. While it sounds complex, decarboxylation is a simple process of precision heating that activates beneficial compounds in cannabis. The second step, infusion, releases those compounds into a carrier oil. Infused oils are easy to take, and oil makes these compounds easier for your body to absorb, too.

To make CBD oil you only need two primary ingredients: hemp and a carrier oil. Hemp flowers that are high in CBD will yield the best results, and if you can’t find them locally, you can order them online. After decarboxylating the hemp flowers, you can then use them to make a CBD-infused oil.
