I have a family member who has shown interest in trying CBD.
I think I'm going to make a new batch of CBD oil later on today.

I made a batch for my girlfriends pets but want to make a stronger human batch.:)

If this happens i'll try to remember to photograph the process so I can show everyone my method to making oil.

But, For now I I have a couple of questions.

Has anyone used CBD oil under the tongue for their eyes?
Does it help with eye problems?

i have always heard it was good for glaucoma but i have never personally dealt with anyone using it for that, so i cant really corroborate...

looking forward to seeing your kitchen extraction pics :giggle:

I started with around 12 grams of CBD bud

I put in my digital over thermometer lead (I set the alarm at around 250f)

Then I cover it with aluminum foil:

I set it up like this for the decarb process.

In the oven it goes for 30 minutes after the temp gets up to 200+f (but NEVER above 300f)

After 30 minutes at 240f - 265f I pulled it out.

You can tell when it's done because it's a little brown and very dry.

I used my machine so I didn't grind the buds up.
I have the STX Infuzium 420 (I used to do it on the stove and it was way harder because I had to constantly check/adjust the temp.)

The machine does it for me :)

I added the decarbed bud, a cup of olive oil and 15ml of sunflower lecithin to the machine.

About an hour and a half later...

I ended up with these (three 30ml's and one 120ml) full of CBD infused olive oil:

I know, Every site has different info.
I can kind of tell when it's decarbed by looking at it so I'd rather leave it in longer at 250f than risk burning it

if it's under decarbed it still works but it isn't as strong as it could be.
If it's burned it is no longer any good.

Also. In the future i'm going to redo this whole process with 2 ounces of flower to 1 cup of oil.
I'm thinking about getting 1/4lb of 14.88% CBD flower and using half of it.
It would have the potential to be 900mg per 30ml this way.
I'd be happy if it ended up being 600mg per 30ml.

My newest infusion with 60 grams of CBD Flower (an ounce of bud and an ounce of trim and shake) in olive oil went very well today.
I took a bunch of pics.

I'm going to start a thread about it when I have some more time.

This is the same large pan from pics 1 and 2 above.
It has 12 grams in the above pics

Below is 60 grams.
