Cannabis oil can cost you a pretty penny in a dispensary.
Even then, you may not have access to exactly what you want. So, why not just make it yourself? Turns out, making your own medicine is easier than you might think.
With the right equipment, ingredients, and a little patience, you’ll have no problem creating a product that’s tailored to your specific wants and needs.
Without further ado, here’s how to make the best medical cannabis oil.
Yes and no. This answer is a little tricky.
For one thing, cannabis is illegal in the United States on a federal level. However, the 2018 Farm Bill states that cannabis and hemp products that contain less than 0.3% THC are legal.
So, if your cannabis oil contains less than 0.3% THC, then yes, it’s legal.
However, states have their own cannabis laws, so what might be illegal federally isn’t illegal in California, Colorado, Oregon, and other states that have legalized recreational cannabis.
Additionally, if you’re from a state where only medicinal cannabis is legal, and if you’re a registered patient, you shouldn’t have a problem making your own cannabis oil at home.
A good rule of thumb is that if you were able to legally purchase an ounce of weed to make cannabis oil, then you’re not doing anything illegal.
The beautiful thing about cannabis oil is its versatility. Experiencing the psychoactive and medicinal properties of cannabis has never been so easy and discreet.
The easiest and albeit least “appealing” way to use cannabis oil is to administer it into the mouth or “sublingually.” It might not appeal to everyone simply because cannabis oil is a concentrated form of cannabis flower, so it really tastes like weed.
However, that’s the easiest way to take it down. It’s also one of the fastest ways to feel the effects because the oil dissolves into the mucous membranes and travels directly into the bloodstream. This means the effects will take roughly 15 to 30 minutes to kick in.
You could even take a syringe and fill pill capsules with your oil to make your own cannabis capsules. However, it might take an hour to feel the full effects because the digestive tract and liver are breaking down the oil.
Finally, having your own cannabis oil means you can be the cannabis chef you always wanted to be. Feel free to drop a few dabs onto your food, infuse oil into your dishes while cooking, or even make a smoothie.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to food and cannabis oil. Plus, you’ll have an easier time masking the weed taste.
