This article by Sandra Hinchliffe for High Times talks everything you need to know before making your own CBD products. Find an excerpt below, then the full piece here:

“CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid occurring naturally in the cannabis plant in varying percentages. More than 60 different types of cannabinoids have been described in scientific literature, with CBD occurring in the most concentrated amounts, after THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). CBD was first analyzed and described in depth by Dr. Raphael Mechoulam in 1963. It should be noted here that CBD doesn’t start out as CBD in raw cannabis plant material. CBD begins as CBDA (cannabidiolic acid) and becomes CBD through the process of decarboxylation, when carbon atoms are dropped from the original CBDA molecule over time, or through the application of heat, or with both heat and time.”
