Cannabis Seeds in Kentucky

Kentucky swamp for cannabis seeds

Kentucky is a mixed bag when it comes to cannabis. Although recreational is still illegal, it does have a medicinal marijuana program. The state also has a long tradition of growing hemp, a tradition since 1775.

Medicinal marijuana in Kentucky

In 2014, CBD oil was allowed to be tested for seizure treatment at the University of Kentucky. This was a good first step but subsequent bills in 2014 and 2015 failed. It wasn’t until 2020 when house bill 136 passed 65 to 30. Unfortunately, the ongoing Covid epidemic has caused the bill to stall before being ratified.

How to make CBD oil in Kentucky

The most popular way to extract CBD oil is called the ‘oil method’. You will need certain high quality carrier oils like coconut or olive oil which is free of any unwanted residues. This method is completely safe and should be fairly straightforward.    

Step by Step Oil Method

First of all, understand that the quality of the Marijuana plant you put in will dictate the strength of the final product. We recommend 3 of our finest CBD seeds to use.

  • First of all, the cannabis buds has to go through a process called decarboxylation.  This involves putting the buds on a baking tray surrounded by tin foil with a few holes through it to let out the air. Place it in the oven and set the temperature at 220°F for 90 minutes. This process heats the plant to temperature which will activate the plants’ chemicals. 
  • Next, you will need a mason jar to mix the cannabis with the carrier oil (coconut oil or olive oil). The quantity of the oil you use will have an affect on the potency of the final product. Let the weed and oil soak together in the jar. 
  • Screw the lid on tight on the jar as we dont want any steam or water to enter the jar in the next few steps. 
  • Grab a small pan or pot which will be used to hold the mason jar with water. Place a small towel on the bottom of the pan and place the mason jar on it. 
  • Turn on the stove and heat the pan until it reaches a temperature of at least 200 degrees. Use a thermometer to keep an eye on the temperature.  

Simmer steps

  • Let it simmer for 3 hours while checking to make sure the water doesn’t evaporate. 
  • After simmering for 3 hours, turn off the stove and let it sit for a further 3 hours. 
  • It’s advisable to heat the mixture for a further 3 hours, turn off the stove and leave overnight.
  • Next morning, use a strainer or cloth to squeeze all of the oil into a separate container. The oil is now ready to use. Congratulations!
