  • Hemp buds

  1. Preheat oven to 230F

  3. Put hemp buds spaced apart on a cookie sheet, and bake at 230F for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes

  4. After buds have cooled, fill your jar 3/4 full of hemp

  5. Fill jar the rest of the way with oil (MCT oil for ingestion, or sweet almond/jojoba/olive oil for topical application)

  6. Cover tightly and store in a dark area such as a pantry, shaking regularly (once a day or so is fine)

Recipe Notes

Store the final product out of the sun and in a container with a tight-fitting lid. Your CBD oil should be good for 18 months-2 years.

You can compost the remaining hemp buds after infusing.

If you want a stronger double-infused oil, simply repeat the process using new buds!
