How Do I Make My Own CBD Products?

CBD is highly versatile, offering numerous opportunities for product formulation. When it comes to making your own CBD products, you can either hire a professional service like Hemp Depot to help you with custom formulations, or you can work on creating your own formulations at home or at a dedicated facility.

Custom CBD Formulation Service

If you don’t have a good understanding of CBD, we offer custom formulation services for large orders. Certain products may need a water-soluble CBD while others may require a CBD-rich hemp oil. Some CBD products may not be flavorless while others are, making flavor profile an important component to consider. Certain raw CBD products also shouldn’t be heated above a certain temperature– having one of our experts help you with all these variables can help you save time and resources.

Brainstorming CBD Formulations

Adding CBD to your favorite recipes and products is a good way to start brainstorming your own formulations. Is there a DIY face mask that you love that you think CBD would enhance? Do you have a yummy smoothie recipe that would pair well with CBD oil or water-soluble CBD? Are there workout products that you’d use with CBD infused? Thinking about the various applications and what a viable product might look like are great jumping-off points. Once you start to come up with some ideas, create some formulations on a trial-and-error basis. Always make sure that you’re properly handling CBD in regards to cooking temperatures, storage, potential ingredient interactions, etc.

CBD Boiling Point and Smoke Point

When you’re working with CBD, it is important to not burn the product or overheat it. We recommend using a double broiler in order to better manage cooking temperatures. When CBD is overheated, it still remains safe and non-toxic. However, it will lose potency and may produce a bitter, undesirable taste. Also, it is important to be aware of the smoke point of the carrier oil. If the CBD oil you’re cooking with has a carrier oil, we recommend researching the smoke point for the carrier oil since it may differ from CBD. MCT oil has a relatively low smoke point, making it less than ideal for cooking.
