Do you demand complete control of your CBD vape oil?
If you’re wondering how to make CBD Vape Oil Cartridge, it’s worth mentioning that the ideal qualification would be a degree in chemistry. Did you think you could never be a chemist? We have had chemicals since humanity has been in control of fire.
It all started millennia ago when someone discovered that “bad” meat could be eaten if the fire left it for a while. Heat could kill bacteria colonies, and the fire had this unique effect, which we know as the Maillard effect.
This causes various components (such as sugars and amino acids) to break down and develop new flavors. That is why “golden meat” tastes much better than raw meat.
Well, this amazing ability to alter substances spread beyond the simple fire. Soon, we grew grains that became infected with airborne yeast and grew to enormous size when mixed with water and sugars and then heated.
The bread became much softer and sweeter. We didn’t know it was caused by yeast, but our early chemists (cooks) knew the effect could carry over if you put some old bread dough into a new batch.
So if you’ve ever made a homemade dumpling, cookie, or soup, you’re already a chemist! That means you already have the skills to make your own CBD e-liquid or CBD Cartridge.
What you need for your kitchen CBD lab:
First, you will need to obtain some basic supplies. Will need:
- An accurate load cell-based gram scale to weigh your material (can be ordered in China for just £ 3.00 with free shipping)
- a clean and sterile container in which to create your CBD vape oil
- funnels, non-absorbent stirrers, and other common kitchen tools
- Appropriate sterile jars in which to store the finished product.
- A supply of vape oil (unflavored if you want to add your terpenes later)
- A mortar (or your own personal “do-it-yourself” solution if it’s a one-time experiment)
- a mild, low-level heat source, such as a saucepan of medium-hot water or even the top of a radiator in winter
- an assortment of terpenes for flavor or enhanced high
- And most importantly, some CBD isolate
The last ingredient is widely available online or at local dispensaries if you have them in your area. It is important to note that good quality CBD Vape Oil Cartridge isolates a fairly white powder or translucent clear plates and is often classified as 99.9% pure CBD isolate.
It can still legitimately be called 90% pure (or considerably less) if it’s yellowish to brown. Still, it could contain undesirable things, like solvents left over from the extraction process or unwanted terpenes. In the case of unknown suppliers, any harmful substances may be present, so pay the “extra” and get the “good product.”
How much CBD to use?
Now don’t just jump halfway. You want to plan your activity carefully. If you have a goal (just a suggestion, not a recommendation) of 500mg in 30 ml, that’s exactly what you’ll need to get started.
What vape liquid should I use?
We’ve all heard the rhetoric about PG (propylene glycol) vs. VG (vegetable glycerin or just glycerol).
Glycol is inexpensive and feels more like traditional smoking when you inhale it. About 20% of e-liquids are made with glycerol because it tastes sweeter, provides a smoother inhalation, and produces more vapor. These are desirable features for some users.
You can experiment, of course, and you may find that a mixture of 80% propylene glycol and 20% glycerol provides your best experience, or it could be 50/50. Remember, you are the chemist here. You decide!
Add some vape liquid.
In your clean container, add 30ml of plain unflavored vape liquid. Please place it in a mild heat source (such as a shallow pot of hot tap water) for several minutes until well above room temperature. Suggested Caution: Do not microwave vaporizer liquid as it can quickly overheat and vaporize suddenly. Be gentle, don’t be in a rush.
Measure your CBD
Take your CBD to isolate and measure 500 mg (half a gram) for this particular example, with its gram scale. If it’s solid, grind it down with your mortar; if it comes as a pre-powder, measure the amount you need and add it to the heated vaporizer liquid.
Stir it up, take your time, again, in no rush, until the CBD Vape Oil Cartridge has completely dissolved. Small crystals can be difficult to see, but you can feel them with your shaking instrument, so keep going until you can no longer detect them. Keep the liquid warm while stirring to make it as efficient as possible.
Simple or flavored vape oil?
At this point, it is time to make a decision. Are you going to add terpenes? If so, it will be delayed for a while. You will only need 0.5 ml of terpene in such a small amount; adding it does not mean it will automatically diffuse everywhere. It is best to leave it for several hours to spread evenly.
To shorten this step, you can get pre-flavored vaping liquids or pre-mixed terpenes without other cannabinoids, nicotine, or additives. With them, it’s just a matter of ensuring the crystals are completely dissolved and you’re ready to go. Do you want absolute control or comfort? It’s up to you.
CBD oil bottling for vape
Pipe your finished product into storage containers and try your new vaping liquid! Did you load it with caryophyllene, humulene, linalool, limonene, or pinene? There are many good terpene options, and each one is said to confer a particular advantage to its use and CBD results.
If you are using a brand name CBD Cartridge vaping liquid from a reputable manufacturer, you are likely to get a good product that is safe, inspected, lab approved, and healthy. If finding a reliable supplier is difficult, you’d better build your product to your specifications.
You may also want a stronger or softer product than is normally available. Maybe you love spearmint vanilla flavor, and no one does that …
Whatever the reason, you now have the knowledge and a list of the necessary tools to be your chemist, doing it precisely how you want. There’s a reason people love mommy’s homemade dinners beyond what you can get at a restaurant or the frozen dinners section of your local grocery store. Sometimes there is simply nothing better than doing it yourself!
