CBD oil is incredibly simple to make provided you have access to hemp flower and a carrier oil, such as olive oil. It has a vibrant herbal flavor and a gentle, calming spirit. You can take it off the spoon, as a supplement or use it in recipes in place of regular olive oil.
Place the hemp flower inside the Ardent Flex, and then press the mode button to activate the A2 mode (approximately 280 F). Allow the flex to run the full cycle and cool completely, at least 30 minutes after the cycle completes.
Make the oil infusion.
Pour the oil over the decarbed flowers, and then seal the flex. Press the mode button to activate the Infuse cycle.
Allow the machine to cool compeltely, and then strain the oil through a fine-mesh sieve into a glass jar or bottle. Stir in the mint extract, and store the oil at room temperature away from direct light and heat up to 2 months.
If you're not using a precision cooker, you can decarb the hemp flower by baking it at 280 F for about 1 hour. Then, transfer it to a saucepan, add the oil and allow the oil to infuse on the lowest setting for about 2 hours. Keep in mind that this method is less precise and typically results in lower extraction of beneficial compounds.
