Make THC Vape Juice / Oil at Home – 3 Simple Methods

The rise of THC vape oil in vape carts has proven to be a revolutionary alternative for smokers around the world. For the reason that it has many advantages over smoking. If you find yourself lucky enough to stay in a country or state where Cannabis is legal, you may have seen the rise of Weed-based Vape Juice in Dab Pens.

THC & CBD E-liquid is not only a great way to get high, but it is also a great method to kick your nicotine habit.

At boredstoners.com, people are always asking if they can make THC vape juice at Home? Now to answer your question… Yes, it is possible to make Cannabis Vape Liquid in your own home! Not only is it possible, but there are a few options available to you which we will discuss below.

How To Make THC Vape Juice & Oil

In some places, it isn’t possible to purchase Cannabis in any form for one reason or another so your only option would be to make your own THC Vape Juice.

Luckily for you, There are a few simple ways to make it. And all of them carry the same principals of extracting the THC oil from the cannabis buds and mixing it with a carrier liquid such as propylene glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerine (VG) or some form of Wax Liquidizer for extracts.

If you decide to use extracts instead of fresh buds, I would advise using a solventless wax, like Rosin. The solvent-based extracts can be dangerous if not purged correctly. Rosin extracts are also safer to make and can be done at home for a relatively small amount of money.

Overview of the 3 Simple Cannabis Vape Juice Recipes.

The three recipes we discuss will vary in difficulty and time, but they are all relatively easy if you can source some high-quality weed and the equipment.

1. THC Vape Juice – Long-term THC extraction with Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerine. (VG) (up to 3 months).

3. THC Vape Oil – Rosin extraction which is then mixed with Wax Liquidizer (2 hours max).

Overall these methods are pretty effective, but the Rosin extraction Vape Oil is the quickest and cleanest if you already have the concentrates.

However, if you don’t, you would need a Rosin Press similar to the highly-rated Dulytek DW6000 or its little brother, the Dulytek DM800. It is possible to do it with a pair of hair straighteners if you must. More on that below.

Recipe 1WEED Vape Juice (Long term extraction)

This method a pretty easy method but isn’t very popular because it takes a long time. It is difficult to mess up and only requires you to grind your cannabis buds, decarboxylate them, then mix it with your PG/VG and leave it to sit for three months, mixing every now and again.

Here’s what you need!
  • Cannabis flowers – As a rule of thumb you can mix approx 1/4 (7grams) of an ounce with approx 80ml of liquid (adjust as required for different strengths).
  • Baking tray or Pyrex oven safe bowl
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Oven
  • Freezer
  • Glass Jar with an airtight lid
  • Stirring spoon Bottle
The steps

1. Set your oven to 250℉ (121℃).

2. Next thing we need to do is grind up your cannabis buds, try to make the grind quite coarse but as even as possible.

3. Following that, you will get your baking tray and spread the ground up cannabis evenly across it, then cover with foil.

4. Once the oven has heated, place the baking tray inside.

5. Next, get your PG/VG, if you bought it separately you will need to mix it. You can mix this to whatever percentage you like really. But, I’d recommend a minimum of 50% VG. However, just remember PG brings out more of the flavor which is why I tend to buy a mix of 60/40 in favor of VG.

40% is near the maximum PG levels I’d ever use because it can be quite harsh for some people, myself included.

6. After 40 minutes remove the cannabis from the oven and allow it to cool. (this decarboxylation step is crucial for converting THCa to THC)

7. Once the buds have cooled place them into your jar, then add your PG/VG mix until the buds are saturated.

Make sure there is enough to completely cover all the cannabis.

Note: I used a little measuring jug because I am doing the quicker method 2, which is where you should go now if you are too. Go to Method 2, step 2. If you are sticking with this one use a jar with a lid.

8. Next, give your mix a stir, put the lid on tight and put the jar away in a cool dark cupboard for three months. I take mine out and stir it every two weeks. When doing so, I add some extra PG/VG mix if and when required.

9. After three months are up, remove the mixture from the cupboard and give it a little stir.

10. Place your rice press over another glass jar or jug and line it with a couple of layers of cheesecloth.

11. Pour your mixture into the rice press, cover with some more cheesecloth then squeeze until your heart is content. Your mix should run into the jar leaving a clean THC vape juice.

12. Syringe up into a bottle, add to your e-cig, and enjoy.

Recipe 2Cannabis Vape Juice (Short term extraction)

This method is very similar to the first, with the addition of heat to speed the process up. In short, we will mix the cannabis with the PG/VG mix then add the jar to the pot with water and slowly extract the THC from the cannabis into the mixture using heat.

1. Follow method 1 up to step 7 then come back here. Go to Method 1

Additional Equipment.
  • 2 pots (or a double boiler would make life easier)
  • Stovetop (must be precise)
  • Water

8. Pour your water into the bigger pot or double boiler, approximately half an inch deep, then add some water to the second pot and place it inside as seen in the photo.

(there are many ways to do this and this is how I do it).

Then add the pot to the stovetop and allow it to heat until you reach a constant temperature of 220℉(105℃). This is where your accurate thermometer comes in handy.

9. Add your Cannabis mix in the jar to the water in the pot and allow it to heat up to 180℉(85℃). Once you reach this heat, you need to maintain it without going over.

This step is crucial as it allows the THC to fuse with the PG/VG mix without destroying quality.

10. Once the temperature inside the jar has reached 180℉(85℃), you want to leave it on the stove for a minimum of 1-hour some recommend 2, 3 or even 4 for more potency. As long as you keep it in the safe at a decent temperature you are free to experiment with the time.

Remember to keep mixing frequently and adding more PG/VG if it looks to dry. Don’t add too much though as it will weaken your mixture.

11. Once you are happy, it is time to remove the mix from the pot and set it aside to cool a little.

12. With the mixture still warm enough that it still flows nicely, take your rice press and cheesecloth. Line the press with 2-3 layers of cheesecloth.

Hover it over a bowl or Jug. Pour your mixture into the press. and alow it to strain through.

Allow as much as possible to drain, then cover the top with more cloth and squeeze the rest of the mix out into the bowl.

This is what you should be left with.

13. The final step is to use the syringe to remove the liquid from the jar and add it to your e-liquid bottle. Now you can add it to your favorite e-cig and enjoy a vape.

Take Away: Next time I will experiment with less PG/VG Mix so it is a bit stronger. Maybe 80ml.

Recipe 3THC Vape Oil (Rosin Extraction)

This is by far our favorite way of making Cannabis E-liquid because it is the easiest way to control the strength of the liquid. You can do this starting from fresh buds or you can acquire some Rosin and start from step

The basics of this method are to press your raw cannabis buds in your Rosin Press or Hair Straightener to Create Rosin wax which you then add to your EJ mix and heat ever so slightly to mix the two together.

Here’s what you need!
  • Cannabis Rosin or Flowers – Compact nugs work best. or Digital Hair straighteners
  • Parchment paper
  • A Wax Liquidizer like the Non-GMO 100% Natural Organic Food Grade Medical Terpenes.
  • Stirrer Spoon (I use my dab tool for this one)
The steps

I bought some wax but if you want to make the wax yourself from weed, I have added the steps in. If you have bought wax, jump to step 6.

**If you have a rosin press follow the manufacturer’s recommendations, If not follow this.

1. The first thing you want to do is grab your cannabis flowers and pack them into neat compact bundles that would fit comfortably within your press or hair straighteners.

2. When you have your weed ready you want to get your Press or hair straighteners ready.

Ideally, you want to be pressing your nugs of weed between 250-280℉ (120 – 140℃). This can be hard to judge when it comes to hair straighteners so I would recommend setting the heat on them accordingly. Use a thermometer for backup just to make sure the temperature is in range.

3. Put your weed onto a piece of parchment paper then fold it over, then place them in the center of the hot plates then squeeze with all your might for about 5 seconds. When finished, remove the pressed nugs and sit the rosin and paper to the side to cool.

4. Repeat the previous steps until you have approximately 0.5g of Rosin.

5. Now we need to remove all the THC goodness from the parchment paper. The easiest way to do this is to stick them in the freezer for 1 minute. As a result, the rosin will harden quickly. Now take a small pick, like a dab tool and start to scrape it off the paper.

Once you have a small piece of the extract on the pick, use that to collect the rest of the rosin with ease. It’s magic.

6. Next, we want to take our little Pyrex or any decent glass vial and add in 1ml of the Medical Terpenes (or whatever mix you choose to use), then add 0.5grams of rosin.

If you want to make more, just remember, 1ml of the mix for every 0.5g of cannabis wax.

7. You now need to heat the mixture; You can do this a few ways. Some people heat the glass with a windproof lighter for a few seconds until it bubbles then mix it, but I wouldn’t recommend trying that.

I boil a kettle then add a small amount of boiling water to a bowl and set the vial with the mixture in it for a while until they can easily mix. leaving a smooth golden e-liquid.

Now your e-liquid is ready to use, Just transfer it into your bottle or vape cart using a syringe and you’re good to go.

Some last thoughts on DIY THC E-liquid

Cannabis e-liquid is pretty easy to make following the methods above, and you are guaranteed to get a good hit.

As long as you ensure you follow our methods and heat guides thoroughly, you should ensure the full decarboxylation process occurs. This is required for activating the psychoactive compounds in the cannabis plant so don’t miss it.

Alternative Ways to Vape Cannabis

Surprisingly, I still meet people that don’t know there are options for vaping dry herbs in their unprocessed form using dry herb vaporizers.

I know right?!

You can also get concentrate vaporizers for vaping your extracts, like the above Rosin. You can vape it without the EJ Mix. Don’t believe me? Read on.

Dry Herbs Vaporizers

Using the actual flowers from the female cannabis plant is the most common way users like to reach that high. We all are familiar with using it to roll a blunt or pack a bowl, but not everyone knows you can vape the herb itself? Be careful though; you can’t just put any form of weed in any type of vaporizer. For dry herbs, you will need a dry herb vaporizer like Tubo Evic or the Arizer Go.

If you are unfamiliar with what a dry herb vaporizer is, here’s a simple answer: “A dry herb vaporizer, is a vaporizer that is for vaporizing dry herb, aka flower.” These vaporizers are generally easy to use and come in many different styles from portable to desktop vaporizers.

Dry herb vaporizers use either convection or conduction heating, or a combination of both, which is known as a hybrid.

What’s the difference?

Convection is when the herb is heated by the hot air passing through the chamber that is holding the bud. This is the optimal way to vaporize your plant because it will produce an even temperature throughout the chamber, thus resulting in better flavor and overall extraction.

Conduction is when the herb is heated through direct contact with a hot surface. This usually comes in the form of a heated ceramic, stainless or glass oven. This is less efficient with shorter sessions and can result in uneven extraction, although some of the top brands like PaxVapor have been improving this over the years by implementing smart technology into the devices.

Hybrid is a combination of both. These devices are usually intended as convection devices and end up being a bit of both because the heater is so close to the chamber. As a result, the chamber gets hot causing some extraction through conduction.

One example of this, in my opinion, is the Arizer Go. It claims to be convection, but I challenge anyone to grab the bowl end of the glass tube after a session and tell me there is no conduction heating going on there.

Concentrate Vaporizers

Extract vaporizers come in many shapes and sizes. You have your regular old dab rig which is simply a quartz banger (a glass bowl that attaches to your bong). You then use a blow torch to heat the banger until it reaches temperatures between 350-850℉ (105-450℃) depending on whether you want low or high temp dabs.

I usually go right about the middle, sometimes below. It is tough to judge the temperature using this method, so this is where the e-nail comes in.

The e-nail in it’s simplest form is a coil that attaches to a digital meter which controls the heat of the coil. The coil is attached to the quartz banger and bong setup similar to the dab rig above. This way we can set the temperature of the coil, and it maintains that heat throughout the session.

These are fantastic for all dabs but particularly low temp because you don’t have to worry about it cooling too much before your concentrate is finished.

Last but not least, We have the Portable Concentrate vaporizers. These come in many shapes and sizes themselves. I personally own the Puffco Peak and the Dr. Dabber Switch which both work primarily in the same way,

They are both battery-powered heaters with a bowl and a waterpipe attachment that is used to vape concentrates. We also have pen types like the Puffco Plus.

The Final Puff

So the original question was whether you could put raw cannabis buds into an e-cigarette and went through the ways you can make it happen. We have gone over some simple methods where we can achieve this without much effort.

As previously said, our favorite method is rosin extraction mixed with wax liquidizer because it is the easiest way to control the strength of the liquid. Furthermore, any leftover wax can be used in my dab rig which is always a bonus.

We also took a look into some of the more modern methods of vaping your weed and why they are worth considering. Dry herb and concentrate vaporizers have come a long way in the last few years and are now my preferred method of THC ingestion.

If you give this DIY THC e-liquid recipe a try, let us know how it worked out. Or, if you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them.

How to Make CBD Vape Juice at Home in 6 Easy Steps

Both cannabinoid (CBD) and vape industries are growing in a parallel manner and not looking to slow down any soon. It has blasted through the roof growing exponentially and captivated everyone globally, especially the young generation. Vaping is not only a mode of smoking but a complete culture in current times. It is redefining fashion with its modernized and artistic look and procedure. On the other hand, CBD is also ruling the market for its various medicinal and relaxing benefits. You cannot expect anything less when two greats meet.

A user can get juices for the vape from anywhere, and even CBD oils are now accessible easily. We can refine the smoking experience by informing our readers how to make CBD vape juices at home. We are writing on DIY cannabis vape juices to apprise how to make vape juice from CBD isolate. Nevertheless, before plunging into this profound sea of expertise, we will know a bit about CBD e-juice and what it contains, along with other necessary information.

What is CBD Vape Juice?

CBD oil is a highly concentrated extract of cannabinoids in the liquid state. The oil is gently blended with the vape juices so the oil can be heated and drawn in with the help of a vape pen. It is regarded as one of the most incredible styles to smoke CBD as it directly enters the bloodstream.

Seasoned smokers can also use CBD oil in their e-cigarette as it is the simplest and greatest method to take pleasure in smoking. Vaping CBD flavors are not new learning and go way back. It is still known as the most effective way of inhaling the product. However, what does a CBD e-juice contain, and what is its effect on the human body?

What is a CBD Isolate?

It is also a form of CBD, but unlike full-spectrum CBD products, it does not feature THC. It is a purified compound that is great for those who want to intake CBD without THC in it. Other CBD products have a small hint of THC present in them.

CBD is a crystalline solid or powder that has a purity of 98 to 99 percent. It does not provide its user with the high effect that THC usually does. They have various impressions linked with mood, memory, appetite, ache, inflammation, and several others.

Whenever you are buying CBD isolate, make sure to purchase it from a well-known brand that keeps it free from THC and other chemical compounds.

The Ingredients in CBD Vape Juice

The CBD vape juices consist of four things: Vegetable Glycerin (VG), Propylene Glycol (PG), natural flavors, and cannabidiol. The CBD used in the e-liquid is extracted from authentic, organic CBD plants. They undergo various tests to ensure their quality, lack of pesticides, herbicides, and artificial fertilizers.

It is pertinent to mention that a 10ml bottle of CBD vape liquid has around 200 mg of cannabinol. It is made in such a manner that it works flawlessly with all types of e-cigarettes, which are compatible with e-fluids.

We shall now itemize the products mentioned above in detail to make our readers aware of them, making the DIY vape juicing process smooth.

We have already mentioned the items that go into the making of CBD juices. CBD vape juice also has a fraction of terpenes to make the product smell right. Let’s dive deeper into these ingredients now.

It is the base liquid used to make vape juices at home. PG is a synthetic organic compound sourced from vegetables, free of odor and color, and used to prepare things like tobacco and other stuff. It is also useful in formulating medicinal substances, which are used for inhaling, injecting, and different ways to consume them. PG absorbs extra water and preserves moisture in particular drugs, cosmetics, and edible items.

  • Vegetable Glycerin (VG)

VG is relatively thicker and has a hint of sugary taste in it. VG is the main component that influences the taste of the juice. FDA has certified both products. It can be used in food, vape juices, cosmetics, and several other products. Both compounds play a vital part in making the e-juice as both provide distinctive quality to the solution.

It is not mandatory to use it but can be used to make the VG ingredient thin. You can also use vodka instead of distilled water. Vodka presents smokers with the desired throat hit without the need to add nicotine in the fluids.

Here comes the favorite part of e-juice preparation. You can use any flavor that feels good to the tongue. We would suggest using those flavors that are made explicitly for smoking rather than using regular food flavors. You mostly need to add only 10 to 20 percent of the flavoring, and a few strong ones need only five percent of seasoning at best.

It is an essential substance in both cigarettes and vapes. You can find it in different strengths, as per the requirement. We know our readers would not be here if they were adept at making e-juices. We would advise to use nicotine with a strength that lies within 8 to 24 mg. Keep experimenting until you find the sweetest taste. Please do not rush into it, as we want the users to savor each puff to their fullest. We do not promote smoking, but we do not lower the fun as well.

You must be careful with it as you do not want to overdose the juice with nicotine.

How to Make Vape Juice with CBD Isolate?

We want to inform the users that there is not much discrepancy between regular CBD vape juice and those made with the isolate. To make it simple, please know that CBD isolate is the purest. Let us teach how to make a delicious CBD vape juice with a CBD isolate.

Please note that the recipe we are sharing will be for preparing 30ml e-liquid.

Firstly, we need 15 ml of PG and 12 ml of VG. Terpenes or flavors should be around 3 ml. We require CBD isolate extract in 500 mg quantity. We also require a syringe, a digital scale, and an empty vape juice vessel or bottle.

Once we have all the previously mentioned products, we need to follow the guidelines that are as follows:

1. Firstly, pour 15 ml of PG into the empty bottle with the help of a syringe.

2. Now, add the CBD isolate extract (500 mg) into the bottle that contains PG. Please do not overdo it. There are CBD dosage charts and calculators online to measure the dose.

3. In the third step, gently shake the bottle to prepare a solvent of CBD isolate and PG. Repeat this process until it is dissolved, and no solid substance can be detected in it.

4. Now, it is time to repeat the first step, but this time with VG. We need to pour 12 ml of VG into the bottle with the help of the syringe and shake the bottle again to mix all the ingredients.

5. In the fifth step, we are supposed to add the flavorings. You should pour a regulated quantity of 3 ml into the container.

6. Lastly, fill up the cartridge and start vaping.

If you have prepared more e-liquid than you require, make sure to put the rest of it in a cool and dry place, like a refrigerator, for the long-lasting effect.

DIY Cannabis Vape Juice

To prepare cannabis vape juice, choose a few plump and resinous buds, and roll them in parchment paper.

– Take a hair straightener and set it about 121 degrees of C.

– Now, heat the folded buds with the straightener.

– Keep applying force until the resin comes out of the flowers, and stop only when the plant stops flowing.

– Now open the bundle to get the rosin. Keep repeating it until we have collected at least a half gram of rosin. Please note that a user needs at least 3 grams of high-quality herb to attain half a gram of rosin.

– It is time to store the mixture in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.

– Use a sharp object to scrape off the rosin and store it in a glass bottle.

– It is time to pour a few drops of desired terpenes into the same container.

– We will now mix the rosin and flavoring into oil by heating the flask for a few seconds or until the mixture starts to bubble up. Please note that heating less will not mix the solution, and heating it more will affect the volatile terpenes. That is why it is recommended to stop heating it when bubbles appear.

– We will repeat the same process as the CBD-isolate and use a syringe to fill the cartridge.

For How Long Does Vape Juice Last?

You must be wondering for how long will the e-liquid last. There is no need to worry about it as it might last up to 18 to 24 months. Nevertheless, if we store it carefully, it can be prolonged to five years of life. That is why it is suggested to keep it in a cool, dry place, away from the sun.

It is pertinent to mention that a change in taste and consistency of the vape juice indicates its expiry.

We believe that our readers are now equipped with the skills required to prepare CBD e-liquid.

We would stress on getting the ingredients of excellent quality for a superb smoking experience.

Effects of CBD Vape Juice

However, are there any side effects of CBD? CBD has not been in the market for a long time, and there are not many studies available to shed light on vaping CBD’s long-term impacts. On the other hand, it has been seen that CBD is linked with positive results among adults.

There have been no reports or claims yet regarding the side effects of CBD vape on the human body and mental health.

Now you know how to make CBD vape juices in a few easy steps. However, it could feel monotonous as it is time taking and prepared after carrying out numerous tests for the perfect taste. It will not be problematic the second time you make it. It is also cheaper than buying a readymade e-liquid from the store. Prepare the mixture in less than 15 minutes and smoke your creation out.
