When people start tossing around words like “freedom” and “independence” this time of year, I can’t help but roll my eyes.
Don’t get me wrong. I like those ideas.
I just can’t help but think about how ass-backward it is that those words will be playing on used car dealership ads while people are still going to jail for this plant.
Even though only 8% of people in the US think marijuana should be completely illegal, the most recent statistics show that someone gets arrested for a marijuana-related offense every minute (663,367 arrests in 2018).
Over 90% of those arrests were for possession, and most were for small amounts. And let’s not forget who gets disproportionately arrested for cannabis possession.
Let’s recap what’s happening in this country before we start tossing around words like “freedom” this weekend:
- You and the overwhelming percentage of your neighbors think we should legalize this plant either medically or recreationally.
- Research has shown that this plant has fewer side effects than many widely prescribed pharmaceutical drugs, decreases opioid overdoses when it moves into a neighborhood, and is “potentially” beneficial for many chronic health issues.
- You can still be put behind bars or have your children taken away for having a tiny amount of it in your pocket.
It looks like we’re free to be part of a system that wastes way too much time, money, and energy keeping this plant from the people who need it most.
The problem is obvious, but so is the solution.
It’s our job to keep doing the work to ensure people have access to safe and high-quality cannabis.
It’s our job to bust the stigma, share what we learn, and take action.
So when this weekend started creeping up again, I was reminded that it wasn’t just enough to sit back and wait for legalization to happen.
I realized how apathetic I’d been these past few years, just banking on the movement to keep going on without much effort since it was on such a roll.
I wasn’t putting much thought into winning the game we’re playing to end this war on plant medicine.
I’ve been lucky to live in places where what I do for a living won’t get my daughter taken away, places where I have access to my medicine without breaking the law.
I can only do this because of the people who have worked so hard to regain this freedom.
This realization brought on some feelings of guilt, but it also made me see how many recent wins there have been in this war on the war on drugs:
- cannabis businesses being deemed essential this year
- a growing wave of expungement, and social equity legislation that is finally putting this industry on the right track to level the playing field
- the 2018 farm bill that made non-intoxicating cannabinoids like CBD and CBG widely available all over the US
And because of that last one, I’ve been able to buy organic CBG flower, grown on small family farms, and make affordable CBG oil instead of paying $180 a bottle for god knows what.
I knew that this recipe was something I needed to share with you because it has been so helpful to me and so many people I know.
But I wanted to make it more than just a recipe.
I want this to be a call to action to continue to work toward liberating this powerful and useful plant and freeing the people whose lives have been destroyed by its prohibition.
I’m laying in bed writing this post, drinking my coffee infused with this homemade CBG oil blended with a very helpful microdose of THC.
This simple act is legal in my state because many years ago, people did what I’m going to ask you to do today.
Just think about how many people this plant medicine has helped, and how many people it could help in the future.
And it won’t happen without your help.
So instead of putting you on the same guilt trip I’ve been on, I wanted to sweeten the pot.
This weekend (July 3rd-5th 2020), I’m giving away one Complete Cannabis Kitchen Bundle that will free you up to make this CBG oil recipe and so much more.
And don’t forget to share the contest so we can spread this information and call to action around as much as possible this weekend! [Update: CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED]
Why make homemade CBG oil?
I didn’t hop on the CBG bandwagon because it’s the next big thing in cannabis (which it is).
I’m sharing it because I tried it for months and saw how good it made me feel, how powerful it was in my CBG oil blends and how helpful it was for people who didn’t get the effects they were looking for with CBD or THC.
So far, we’ve gone deep into the science and covered what CBG oil is good for and how to decarboxylate it, so now it’s time to put it all together and learn how to infuse things with CBG at home.
Making CBG oil at home is so much cheaper than buying it online.
And like all other homemade cannabis edibles and infusions, you get to control the ingredients, balance your ratios, and find what works best in your body.
If you’ve never made cannabis edibles or infusions at home before and you’re scared to try this recipe, I promise you – as a home cook that burned pancakes yesterday – if I can do this, you can do this.
Before we dive into the CBG oil recipe, I wanted to pull back from the data and research a bit and have a real talk about why I love CBG when it comes to using this plant for daily wellness, healing, and maintenance of chronic conditions.
Why I love this CBG oil recipe (and use it every day)
Like I mentioned in our science deep dive post, CBG may be useful for pain, brain health, depression, and inflammation.
I’ve personally noticed a big difference when I’m incorporating CBG into my routine when it comes to inflammation, pain, and mood.
One of the benefits of CBG that I didn’t mention in that post is that – like CBD – it makes THC less intoxicating.
While that may not seem like a benefit to everyone, if like me, you’re dealing with something like PTSD or anxiety, too much THC can be unsettling at best, and panic attack inducing at worst.
I love CBG not just for what it does, but also because it allows me to use small doses of THC for its pain-relieving and muscle-relaxing properties without spinning out or getting paranoid.
I also love this CBG oil on its own as a clear-headed, mood-boosting, daytime dose.
Because right now, we don’t have access to balanced ratio plant material when it comes to CBG, I’ve been playing with making my oil blends using material from different plants.
I’ve had great results blending CBD, CBG, and THC oils, and my favorite ratio right now is 2:2:1.
I’ll cover oil blends and ratios a post soon, sign up for the newsletter for updates!
Do you need to Decarboxylate CBG?
I’ve been around long enough to know that you’re going to ask 😉
Yes! You do need to decarb CBG.
We did a whole post on why you need to decarboxylate CBG and different ways to do it here.
Where do you buy CBG flower?
I get mine from Sacred Smoke Herbals.
It’s affordable, grown using organic inputs and practices, sourced from small family farms.
To make it even more affordable, you can use the code WAKEANDBAKE for 15% off your purchase.
Win, win, win, win.
Homemade CBG Oil Recipe
Mason Jar Cannabis Oil Method
This method was tested in my oven and my crockpot.
Note: Mason jars can break if they get too hot, so if you’re afraid of breakage, you can use the direct crockpot method or the FX. I try to keep the temperature around 180f (which requires some babysitting) and have never had one break, but it’s possible.
- Decarboxylate CBG flower according to these directions.
- Fill a crockpot about halfway with water (or just enough to cover the flower and oil) or preheat oven to 200f
- Fill a mason jar with 1 cup of MCT oil and 7 grams of decarboxylated CBG flower
- (note: before you infuse, do dosage math on the Wake + Bake calculator and adjust to the desired strength of your oil. At 15% CBG, this makes oil that is about 20mg/tsp).
- Cover with foil and poke a meat thermometer through so you can try to keep a consistent temperature
- Place the mason jar in the crockpot and put the crockpot on high or put the mason jar in the oven. Once the temperature reaches 160-180f, reduce the heat. Check every 20-30 minutes to make sure it stays in that range for about 2 hours. If the infusion gets too hot, remove from the heat and put your oven or crockpot on the lowest setting and try again.
- Strain with cheesecloth and save raffinate (the leftover plant material and oil) to make a not so high version of High Chai.
How to Make CBG Oil in the Ardent FX or Nova
Using the Ardent FX is my preferred method for all of my infusions.
With a few presses of a button, you get a 97-100% effective decarb, an easy infusion process, and a fast and straightforward cleanup—no more babysitting temperatures or wasting plant material.
If you already have an FX or a Mini, you can use it to make this CBG oil.
- Put your plant material in the chamber of your Ardent device. In the FX, press the a1 cycle to decarboxylate your plant material. In the Nova, run it through 1 cycle.
- Once the cycle is complete, add 1 cup MCT oil to the FX. (see dosage info above) If you’re using a Nova, transfer the decarboxylated material into an infusion sleeve and then add the oil.
- Do one infusion cycle.
- Strain with cheesecloth and save raffinate (the leftover plant material) to make a not so high version of High Chai.
If you don’t have an FX or Mini, you can go here and use the code WAKEANDBAKE for $30 off and free shipping.
How Can I Use My CBG Oil?
Now you’ve made this oil (easy, right? Told you so!), so what can you do with it?
The only limit here is your imagination. In the recipe, I state that you can infuse using MCT oil, but you can use any fat that you want.
This oil is perfect for making homemade edibles. CBG edibles are an effective way to stay consistent in your dosing and skip the overpriced (and gross) edibles at the dispensary.
I believe in the value of creating healthy edibles in your kitchen. My goal is always to help you save money and control the ingredients you put in your body, and that’s the easiest way to do it.
It’s the driving factor behind the experiments, recipes, and research we do here.
After seven years of testing, I released the Cannabis Cooking Masterclass, where I show you how to make (almost) anything into an edible.
The investment is less than one trip to a dispensary and will save you hundreds of dollars a year, and countless kitchen fails.
You’ll get instant access to the masterclass, and it’ll be yours for life.
Questions? Comments? Challenges? Amazing results? I love hearing from you, and we all learn better together, so share ’em below!
And don’t forget to share this post with someone who may find it helpful!
I have a question. I have a Butter Brewer and its decarb cycle is only 35 minutes. I need to run that twice, or run it manually, to set it for longer, would that be correct? Is two cycles even enough?
We haven’t used a Butter Brewer before, maybe try reaching out to their customer support 🙂

Hello! Just received my FX and ordered CBD & CBG from Scared Smoke. Looking forward to making my own oils. I’m looking forward to your post on oil blending to help with chronic pain & inflammation.
This sounds like a great contest, but I’m guessing it’s only for United States citizens?
Yes, this one was for the US, but we will do another giveaway for our international readers soon!
This is the first time I’ve ever heard of CBG; cannabis is so diverse and natural.
Love the info on CBG, something I need to look more into.
The info/facts surrounding Marijuana legalization and felonies is astounding and I agree. Let’s use plants and not synthetic drugs! We don’t have a Zoloft system, or vicotin system. Thanks again.-Julia
Yay for DIYers! ??
I’m excited to try this! Thank you ?
Thank you for linking to a place where we can purchase just CBG flower!
Thank for sharing your ratios…I also use your book Dazed and Infused RELIGIOUSLY!
No problem commenting again…would love to leave my mainstream life to dive into healing bodies!
Thank you so much for the calculator. It’s a life saver. I’m going to be able to be more consistent with my oils now!
I’m up in Toronto Canada, we’ve been legal for a bit over a year but as usual it’s been handled really poorly by the provincial government. Not sure if any high CBG strains are available yet. Getting a new strain to market is prob very restrictive.
So much to learn!
I would love to see legalization for everyone in the USA! Freedom to live! Hailing from Oregon, I have been making “strong” oil from my legal homegrown and making cannacaps, very convenient, discrete, portable, healthier than the volcano, and strong enough for me…I have a high tolerance… my buddy, who also is a big stoner, had 2 and was still at 7.5/10 the next morning, whoops! 🙂
I can’t wait to see how CBG affects me and my mother’s ailments! It is difficult to navigate the landscape of cannabinoid information, and I return to Wake and Bake over and over for recipes and honest reflection. I am excited to make some CBG oil for my mother, who needs her cannabis medicine for depression, sleep, pain and inflammation. She has been a victim of the drug war and carried the weight of being a loving mom who was also labeled as a criminal for growing the medicine she needed. Thank you for encouraging the end of a broken system that often causes those in need of cannabis medicine to seek more dangerous (and deteriorating) options.
Can’t wait to put these tips and tricks to work! Thanks for sharing.
We live in Texas, so it’s still stone-age in more ways than one here, so I’ve been on a several-years mission to not only petition/call/etc. but also to find CBD/CBG products that work. I have several sucky things going on mentally and physically, And THC helps me tremendously, but it’s very tricky to get, so I have to make do with other cannabinoids in the interim. I’m still on all of my prescription meds, so it’s a day to day thing. Thank you so much for sharing this information!!! It’s incredibly helpful, and I’m excited to see what I can do! ✌️
I absolutely love using my ardent for making oils! thanks for the tip!
Hello. So I made the thc mct oil last week, now I will be looking for high cbg strain to try this oil out. Thank you for all you are doing for the movement!! I am experimenting with thc microdosing (with said mct oil) and was wondering what classifies a “micro dose” or does that kind of vary person to person? Thanks again! ?
I have been loving CBG and what it offers for me and my medical issues. I have been off pills for almost 3 months with no side effects! It is amazing:)
Thank you so much for recognizing the benefits of other cannabinoids besides THC and CBD. I am so excited to learn more about extracting for particular cannabinoids!
this is very interesting, I am very good in this whole world of cannabis and it really changed my life, now I will deal with CBG oil thanks for sharing and leading us on this path ?
Great to hear that my Nova will work. Thanks for the info!
Can’t wait to try this all into my own health care routine!
I have learned so much! We have come far in our understanding of this plant and it’s many uses. Thanks for helping to demystify processes that can be intimidating.
Thank you for always making always making thorough and informative posts. They’re extremely helpful!
I just came to view the goodies (and Corrine ?)
Wow, super info. I have just recently been exploring CBG.
I love everything that your company stands for and its amazing all of the great things your trying to do
Love my Nova…and making MCT infusions for my coffee, baking and savory dishes. All cannabis all the time!
Great blog post !! Your information on the relationship between Cannabis and Social Justice and the industrial prison complex is vital to getting reforms moving in the right directions. I signed the petition and will watch for more ways to help us regain our freedom.
So much fantastic and easy to follow info! So excited to make CBG oil!
Thank you for making this post! I actually read it when you first published it, and not only has it answered all of my questions about decarbing CBG, but inspired me to work with the MCT oil solo! Can’t believe I didn’t think to infuse it by itself (because DUH!!); but I now also realize how badly I need the new Ardent FX. I need to make smaller & more potent batches most of the time than what my current machines allow. Regardless, CBG is simply amazing. Changed my entire “mental well-being” game, and I feel better than I have in a very long time. Being hopeful and feeling blessed while remaining grounded and focused, especially for the times in which we are living now, is such a blessing – and I owe it directly to my CBG/cannabis regimen (and you, too, Corrine!).
Thank you for your clear and easy instructions. So excited to learn about cbg.
I can’t wait to try this!! Thank you!
How long should one keep oil going for if you’re using the crockpot/oven method? It says check every 23-30 mins for temp, but for how long?? Thanks for the tips!
Great question! I do it for about 2 hours. I’ll go edit that now.
Once again you can count on Corinne to come thru with a great post
Wow! Thanks Leonard!
I’m so glad to see CBG getting some much needed attention! Unfortunately, brain inflammation makes it difficult for me to process the recipe steps. I’m in a catch-22 of needing CBG edibles to calm my brain down enough to make CBG edibles. ?
Did you check out the video? Maybe a visual would help. Otherwise, let me know how I can make it easier. I’m here to help!
Thank you for all your great work and excellent educational resources.
So much information! I definitely will have to read this over once or twice more just to make sure all this info sticks:) Thank you so much for doing the research and sharing your information. I enjoy your posts.
It’ll be here as a resource for you whenever you need to brush up. I’m glad you dig it!
Thanks for making this so much easier!!!! I always learn so much from your posts!!! My state legalized awhile ago and you have reminded me that I need to help those struggling in other states use this sacred plant medicine legally! I love how you incorporate the known science and demythologize how to do this to get the most from this plant to support our health and wellbeing. And you help us find the tools and the products and the procedures to accomplish this in a way that anyone and everyone can do this with what they have.
I’m just got my Sacred Smoke order this week. So excited to try!
I posted a comment, but it does not appear, so again I want to thank you for bringing us this vital info in a way that is so easy and accessible! I appreciate the science and the art of how to make this healing oil using whatever we have so that anyone can do this! I bought the Nova and love it for making oil that I then use in healing balms. You have also reminded me that I need to help push legislation in other states as mine has already legalized, so that everyone can use this plant medicine for their health and wellbeing!
(We check ?) in the comments. Lol ? Yet to try CBG. Love reading your emails.
Can’t wait to try this
I’ve made your Green Dragon before – and might I say Oh BoY! 🙂 This has been on my list to make so thank you for the push. I’m a California girl who now lives in Missouri (slow to get started Medical state) and found your site to be the best thing for me in learning how to create what I use to buy. Thanks for every thing you do Corinne! One day our paths will cross and I can’t wait!
Thank you so much for sharing!!
Thanks for your commitment. I just hope my state realizes the positive impacts cannabis has on the health of it’s residents soon. All of the information provided about making CBG oil was very helpful
Thank you for sharing your knowledge. Your website has been a great reference for me. Your teaching videos are very clear too.
Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with the rest of us?
Looking forward to working with CBG. Thanks for all your shared knowledge.
So helpful as always!! I hope one day my state legalizes so I can get more variety of medicine!
I’m loving Sacred Smoke’s Harmony and am excited to try making my own CBG oil. Thanks for all you do!!
This is awesome! I need to do some reading up on CBG. I just got into this plant medicine, and I’m so excited to doing some experimenting in the kitchen!
Thank you for the info on CBG.
This is so exciting! I love seeing more and more people educating on cannabis. I would love to learn more on cooking with cannabis and making my own edibles/food. As a medical patient, I’m finding that I want healthier options with larger doses to help treat my ailments.
I love all the information you give us. I have your book bundle and can’t wait to try out your recipes and learn how to make my own oils and edibles.
Thank you for bringing CBG to my attention. I have been making medicine for my friend using a 1:1 CBG:THC ratio and it has been working beautifully to manage her pain and depression. Love you, love your blog ❤️
Thanks so much! So happy to have discovered your website. Glad to continue to learn about CBG!
From southeast Wisconsin very close to Illinois border and not having it legal near so many Other surrounding recreational states This giveaway would change my life
I do need to read more about CBG as this is brand new info to me. Just wondering why sunflower lecithin is not recommended for the CBG blend?
With this particular recipe, we forgot to add the lecithin. Feel free to add lecithin to your oil, as it helps with absorption.
I hope this helps!
If you have any more questions feel free to reach out to [email protected]
-Maddie (Team Wake + Bake)
I am so happy I found your website. I have learned so much about Cannabis from your site.
I feel like I will never stop learning when it comes to all that is involved with cannabis. I discovered it late as an adult, as I am not a fan of smoking. But edibles/micro-dosing/salves for medical help. And oh man life changing!! And I just found you, I can’t wait to learn more.
Thank you for your wealth of information! I hope I will win the bundle!
Thank you so much for all you have done and continue to do to help educate and teach the truths ?
Your site has been a great resource for me over the past few years, THANK YOU!
Question… what do think about adding essential oils or flavorings to the oil and do you think that would have an effect on absorption?
Thank you for the positive feedback!!
That is a GREAT question. Corinne doesn’t personally add essential oils to her infusions, but you are welcome to do what you like.
We have a post coming up with this topic, so stay tuned!
-Maddie (Team Wake + Bake)
Great post! I had really little knowledge on cbg, I will definitely try it out!
How fast does the CBG work with pain? Also can I use vegetable oil to make CBG oil?
Maddie here…(Corinne’s assistant)
Using a oil works pretty quickly, onset can vary from person to person.
I wouldn’t recommend using vegetable oil, I would go with some type of extra virgin olive oil. If you are using the oil often it would be best to use the healthiest available 🙂
I hope this helps 🙂
Thank you for being so down to earth. I live with chronic pain and inflammation. I found your blog/website because of the research I was doing and I am so glad I did.
Yay! We are so glad you found Wake + Bake!!!!
seems really simple and easy, thanks for this.
Excited to make my own CBG edibles!! Thanks
Love to learn.
Ive never heard of cbg until now, im excited to start experimenting with it.
I own your other books and intend to purchase the video masterclass at a later date. Thanks so much for this bonus/preview/gift of one episode. Always learning new things. I only wish I wasn’t allergic to chocolate/cacao. Would all your chocolate recipients work with white chocolate? Thanks!
They should work with white chocolate too 🙂
-Maddie (Team Wake + Bake)
CBG! I am off to check out Sacred Smoke Herbals!
(We check ?) in the comments. Love from Scotland
Corrine – you are my people. You always provide great information/resources with humor and solid delivery. Dazed+Infused has become a go-to reference in my own journey. I appreciate what you do!
I absolutely love your approach to freedom and the Fourth of July! So much good information here about healing and about how much more work have to around access to and freedom of use and users of this magical plant!
I am looking forward to trying your CBG recipe. Thank you Corrine. You’re amazing.
Been using CBD oil & have been able to cut down & almost stop my Blood Pressure meds can’t wait to try CBG. Hope to win giveaway.
First, I need to learn how to make THC oil. Never been a big fan of CBD oil. Seems like you get 5-10 minutes of relief, and then you’ve got to keep taking it again. That gets expensive. Just seems way too weak for me. But to be fair, I have never tried to make it myself.
But now I have become interested in CBG oil, so I will research it and see if that is something that will help me with pain, inflammation, depression, and insomnia. Thank you Corinne, for your matchless dedication to teaching and being a cannabis advocate and activist.
Great information. Thank you.
This could solve so many problems. Thanks for the informative class!
I just started making my own cbd oil. So glad I found your page ???
Thank you for this! I’ve been thinking a lot, lately, of how we can make legalization intersectional from outset…how do we make sure BIPOC can profit from legalization?
I love the info you provide. I live in a state that has legalized medicinal use and im so excited to incorporate the info I’ve learned from you into my life, hopefully reducing chronic migraines and the need for big pharma!
Patiently waiting for my CBG to arrive so I can begin the making madness! ?
Thank you so much for all this useful info! I live in CA now and being in a legal state has made all the difference in my world. I’m using thc and other strains to help me stay alcohol free (it’s been 1 yr 3 mo!!)
All for legalizing for EVERYONE and releasing anyone in prison due to weed charges. Peace and thanks!
I have been making a topical and edibles using the recipes found here for the pain my wife has been dealing with after doctors pretty much just gave her pills that did nothing or left her where she couldn’t function,winning this ardent fx would be a god sent,been doing the oven method,its works consistent consistency is hard to achieve
Can’t wait to start doing this on my own!
Just read the article and watched the video. Learned something new about decarbing in a mason jar/foil/meat thermometer! Will be trying that method out this weekend!! So glad to have found Wake & Bake blog/website when searching for alternatives to pain meds!! Your recipes and info/tips are great! Can’t wait to add CBG edibles to my arsenal of healing products! Thanks Corinne for your willingness to share your knowledge/research of the wonderful family of cannabinoids!!
Thank you, Linda!!
SO GLAD i FOUND YOU GUYS… JUST ORDERED SOME CBG BUD…CANT WAIT!!!! MY NOVA IS WAITING TOO…
(Second Posting – can’t find the first one)… great video and article. So glad to have found your blog and website. Love all the recipes and tips! Am definitely going to make some infused oil this weekend using the jar/thermometer technique!! Thanks Corinne for sharing your research/tips/recipes for the wonderful family of cannabinoids!!
I would like to know more about the differences with cannabinoid and hemp plants. I am trying to find a way to help my grandchildren with their anxieties, depressions. Sadly my husband had so many restrictions from the military that he could not relieve his chronic pains and succumbed to that. We did try some edibles but his addictions made it difficult to assist him. Now I want to help those veterans who could benefit more with more knowledge and less abuse with a safe way with in the military. A new path for me I guess.
I can see where the confusion,
Hemp is a LEGAL term. Hemp = Less than 0.3% THC.
I hope this helps!
If you have more questions, feel free to send an email to [email protected] 🙂
You always have great information that helps me out. I have been using CBD oil for pain and now it is time to try CBG.
This is the best info I have found so far! Thank you!
Can’t wait to try out the recipe for myself.
You taught me how to make tincture way back in 2017. Still learning…
Just received my CBG flowers this week after being inspired by your initial blog about it! My husband has a benign tremor, and I’m hoping to make up an oil that could help him control his fine motor skills, and this blog was the perfect next step. We did an experiment with him, with very shaky hands, taking a couple of pulls off a little pipe with just CBG hemp in it, and besides making him relaxed (but not “altered” at all–not high), he found after a few minutes that he could hold a spoon without shaking as much and I’m hopeful.
I ordered an Ardent FX from the link on your site, and once it arrives, I will infuse an oil for the very first time! However, thanks to your tips and watching your videos, I feel very confident and excited about it… almost like I’ve done it before ?. Thanks so much for everything you’re doing!
I can’t wait to try homemade CBG!
CBG oil looks so intriguing. I can’t wait to add it to my health regimen.
Love this! No need for lecithin in this recipe?
Thank you, as always for sharing your knowledge and resources.
That being said— I have a question. In what situations would you choose to use CBG over CBD? Or do you simply use it to enhance more of a “whole medicine” approach alongside the CBD and THC?
Thank you for sharing your methods!
Cbd helps me a lot. Can’t wait to try cbg
Thanks again for the information – and very helpful to have another source of CBG and some suggestions for its use. Good to know that like CBD, it minimizing (balances out) the psychoactive effects of THC.
I have been just now hearing about CBG and it sounds right up my alley.
Love to Wake and Bake with Corrine!
Thanks for all the info on CBG. I can’t wait to try this recipe. Ordering CBG now.
Yes, we do need to push forward, so that people who have a criminal record from cannabis possession can enjoy the freedom America is known for!
It is very sad that someone could become a felon, losing their ability to get good jobs in the future, to have custody of their children, to vote, etc all because they were seeking to self medicate with a harmless plant!
Thank you, as always, for your helpful videos and blog posts! I’ll be excited to experiment with CBG soon!
Thank you for Wake and Bake. I always look forward to your blog post but especially this one. I’ve had trouble understanding the difference in cbg but your explanation was great. Thanks for all you do!
Corrine!! I have been following you for years now and have benefited from your extensive knowledge on using cannabis, I can’t wait to start applying CBG health and wisdom to the regime! Thank you for this awesome post- bookmarked!!!
I love geeking out on all things cannabinoid! Cannabigerol sure is showing to be a powerful anti-bacterial & anti-inflammatory, with various studies showing that it is also a great neuro-protective & effective for treating glaucoma. Maybe my eye sight will improve too with CBG, that would be awesome! Thanks for all the great up-to-date info & deets, keep it coming!
Thank you Corinne, I’ve used cannabis for a long time for it’s medicinal properties, but my state has only had medical use for a few years and it’s nice to have your site to get reliable information to share.
We Love having a reliable learning resource.
This is perfect for my mom to try out. She is very sensitive to THC. But using CBG would hopefully be able to help her with some pain, without having to worry about the THC kickback! I’m definitely bookmarking this! Thanks!!
Always sharing the fabulous wonders if this plant! Love it ❤️
I love the way you make things so easy to follow.
Just learned an easier way to infuse oil so much quicker and easier than the crockpot method
So excited to give this a try! Thanx!
This is wonderful Information. Thank you for all the great information. It has been extremely helpful
Prohibition of the cannabis plant has caused so much distrust and misinformation over the years. Hearing stories from my mom about how she was horrified when a family friend showed off their attic nursery years ago, then fast forward to 2017 and my mom is telling me about the CBD oil that she’s starting taking on the advice from a friend and the wonders it’s doing. This is, of course, the same information that I had given her years before. I’m glad that people’s minds are changing, I just want faster change is all. I’m excited to try this new recipe and gift some to my parents for them to try as well.
how do the effects of cbg flower compare to the effects of a cbd flower?
so much knowledge!!! Thanks
Thank you for helping to keep us educated ?!!
Corrine, thanks as always for your informative and well-written articles! I appreciate the introduction to CBG, and have ordered from Sacred Smoke- again, thanks to you ? ??
Thank you for this information. Read the article few days ago on CBG and was so excited to read possibilities of helping with dysfunctional bladder!! I will be heading to Sacred Smoke site this weekend to give this recipe a try!!
Thanks for all you do to support patients! So many cannabinoids, so little time?
Thank you for the informative videos! I have only ever known about THC, and very little knowledge on CBD. I look forward to experimenting with CBG.
Not sure if it’s posting? Just thanks for another amazing article. In such a hard time you are being so generous with a giveaway. Am very glad I found your site. Also I almost wished you happy Independence Day, Corrine (I deleted) lol…I meant it as being we are nearly there. Then I read the article..whoops!
Good stuff. My gf is reading your stuff, we are enjoying
Great tutorial. I just ordered some CBG from Sacred Smoke to make my first batch of CBG oil.
SUCH great helpful information for newbies! Thank you!
I really have to look into CBG flower. You’re a wealth of knowledge Corinne!
My husband and I are literally on the Sacred Smoke Herbals site to get some CBG now. As always, thank you for being such an incredible wealth of knowledge!
Thank you, I can’t wait to make my first batch
Definitely a new pursuit CBG! Thanks .. Really great points & truth .. Encouraged to not sit idle, much appreciated
Ever grateful for your guidance! Also pumped you’re spreading the good word of CBG!
Thank you for another great recipe and an inspiring email!
Ummm, Yay! July 1st was day 1 of decrim in Virginia. As a Senior, I no longer want to smoke and am finding great joy in experimenting with all these recipes. Thank you!
I am SO curious to try CBG! I love cooking with infused oils! I make your chocolates a lot! They’re delicious & fit in my keto diet quite well! Thanks for enlightening us all, Corrine!
Another wonderfully informational post. Thank you!
This is exactly the kind of info I’ve been searching for. Thank you for what you are doing to bring healing to all!
This is great info on CBG. It’s good to have alternatives for anti depressants. I will pass this on. Your tutorials are always precise and easy to follow. And Sacred Smoke is another great resource. Thank you.
Great information! I have been Microdosing for over a decade and I wish I had this kind of information back then. Thanks for helping others do their own, they’ll save lots of money. Thanks for all you do… 71+ your old man.
I love your thoughts on freedom. It is time to recognize the right of adult sovereignty over consciousness or we cannot claim to be free in any way.
Thanks for all the knowledge you share, this recipe refreshed my memory on oil making, I always read the recipes when you post because if you find a better way to do something you share it!
Definitely will be giving this a try!
Totally agree with you! It’s insanity for the government to continue ignoring the benefits of this wonderful plant and stop ruining people’s lives!
Great info! Thank you!
I need to research CBG oil. It’s hard to get “supplies” living in a prohibition state.
I love your recipes, and you insight into using these medicinal oils for the wide variety of uses you promote is unparalleled. Thank you so much Corinne!
CBGeekin’ on your info, Thanks!
Just what I’ve been looking for – great information on the usage of cannabis!
So much to learn. Thanks for the amazing info!
I learned a lot today! Thank you!
I love learning about CBG, thank yuh ou for all the great info.
Thank you for putting out such high quality content and info. ✌?
Amazes me how much information is out there. I’m so happy that we are in a place where we can learn and help heal!
Going to make some oil today.
Thanks for the great and educational article. Using natural plant materials as opposed to supporting BIG PHARMA with high costs and placing toxic ingredients in your body…definitely makes it an easy decision and much healthier way to go. Thanks again for sharing the knowledge!
I use the Ardent machines (have both) and they have been game changers. I did want to mention that if you decarb in the oven, you should calibrate your oven before putting in plant material in. Calibration is easy. Take an oven thermometer set your oven to desired temperature and check against the thermometer. If Thermometer is 10 degrees lower, increase oven temp by 10 degrees. If thermometer is higher, reduce heat by how ever much higher it is. This way you know for next time on your decarbs, and you can adjust for anything else that requires an oven.
I love my Ardent Nova machine
Thanks for the cbg info!
When it’s this easy to make your meds, thanks to Wake and Bake, you’ve got to give it a try. The Ardent Nova and FX takes the worry out of the preparation too.
So much to learn!
Just bought the farm….literally. Am so excited to experiment with making my own edibles. Perhaps growing my own plants. You are going to be the greatest help; everything I have read/seen so far is so well explained- I can’t wait to start!!!
Karen that is AWESOME!
Great info, thank you
Thank Corrine for all the info, without it I would be totally lost! I finally have started to make edibles and MCT oil tinctures that taste good AND are strong enough…I have made a lot that tasted strong and barely worked.
Thanks for the instructions. Will try it soon
This would be so helpful. Thank you for the info.
I love that our knowledge is expanding as the stigma is slowly being unwound
I am literally binging all of your content right now. So amazing! Thank you!
Totally agree. It’s time people stop waiting around and start advocating for common sense reform that advances the medicinal use of cannabis. Thanks for taking a leadership position on this issue.
CBG?! Never heard of it until I saw your article. Mind Blown !
This is the first I’ve heard of this…I’m in.
I have chronic pain. I very much appreciate the amazing information.
Have been using Synergy it is 50%CBD & 49% THC for pain. Would love to make CBD pain medication for myself and save money. Saving to by Ardeny FX or the Nova
Really informative, I don’t know about cbg and I’m intrigued now
I love your information. Thank you for sharing!
I was wondering if lecithin is used for the CBG? Thanks. Always love your videos and education.
You can totally add lecithin to this recipe.
We forgot to add it this time. It isn’t necessarily needed, but it does help absorption.
Let us know at [email protected] if you have more questions 🙂
-Maddie (Team Wake + Bake)
So informative and easy to understand, thank you.
Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!!!
I followed the mason jar method and it was a total success thank you !!
Very interesting! Thanks for posting!
My CBG bud is on the way! Thanks for all the great info.
Thank you for working so hard to spread knowledge…. cannabis and social. We need national legalization!! <3
Thanks for all the great info. I love to cook and can’t wait to dive in!
Thank you for another incredible article. All of your research saves me time and worry! I appreciate your work. I have also purchased your e-books and they have been very helpful also.
Thank you, Peter! We are so glad you are finding success!!
This is my third post, sorry. It keeps making me post comments for the co test… ?
Would love to hear about Using the bake option with the Fx!
Thank you for posting this tutorial. 🙂 CBG is is new to me. Gonna check out Sacred smoke. Their website is beautiful.
Love all the recipes and ideas you have. Made a batch of your gummies yesterday and enjoying them on this Covid 4th of July! Thanks for the research and info you provide us.
That’s awesome Joseph!
Thanks for the info on CBG!!
Thanks for the teachings that you share, I find this very informative and I would like to know if I make a large batch how should this be stored? (fridge, dark cool place etc.)
You can store in the fridge if you want, or in your pantry 🙂
CBD oil is great to have. I smoked some CBG flower and it made me more at ease. I felt Good!
Thank you Corinne for all you do for the cannabis community. I’ve learned so much from you!
Thank you! I love using my nova for decarb!
You are right about the dosage vehicle – using tincture and a dropper is easy to miss/delay/etc., But I will always find time for a piece of chocolate!
Thanks Corine for all you do and inspiring all those around you.
Thank you for the sweet comment Becky!
Thank you for sharing your knowledge! I tried your CBD oil and homemade gummies recipes this week. They turned out great even with just having an oven and crockpot.
I love your website. Thanks for all the great info!
WOW!! Thank you for all of what you’re doing for Patients & to spread the word about CBD/CBG!!
Just ordered CBG seed…! Wish me luck…!
Thank you so much for your wealth of knowledge and sharing! I am excited to try this! ☺️
Thank for your insightful knowledge. This is all so new to me so very exciting 🙂
Thanks for the detailed recipe! Will try making capsules with this oil.
Thank you so much for putting together all this info on CBG. I’m excited to order some CBG flower from Sacred Smoke as soon as I can so I can experience it for myself.
I can’t wait to learn more from Corrine❣
I love the Ardent Nova and the Flex. They both work great and have become my go to decarb way of choice
I’m looking for something to help with inflammation in my joints……like my hands and knees. Just gotta get my hands on some CBG.
Can wait for my country to at least depenalize cannabis, since here CBD is “legal” but we can grow the plant so we have to import from other european countries…
I love your blog! So much helpful, understandable information. I try and soak up all the info I can and your blog makes it super easy for this to happen! Thank you! I’m heading over to check out the CBG site now. Thanks!
Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge in such a fun and thorough way! Looking forward to learning more about and trying CBG oil
Learning so much and loving it. Thank you
Would love to make this at home ?
I’m just getting into making my own edibles, smoking is getting to be too harsh for me, so I’m so glad I found your blog! There is a ton of helpful info and I’m definitely going to be purchasing your masterclass!
We are so glad you found Wake + Bake!
It’s crazy how widely accepted cannabis has become in our society, to the point where I sometimes forget how illegal it still is. It’s 2020! It’s time for the legal system to catch up. And if not us taking action, then who? Love this article! Also, I highly recommend and love Sacred Smoke Herbals too. 🙂 I’m a local Arizonan and I love their products
I am loving the CBG info and am going to order some. Can’t wait to work with it and incorporate it into my apothecary ?
I love it when you geek out with all the science info! Thank you for posting about CBG!
you’ll really never know how much your site has meant to me and my cannabis for chronic pain journey. Between all your geeky science post to your dosage calculator I am completely comfortable with the process of making my own cannabis edibles and sublingual drops. I already am a huge CBD/THC fan but now I’m super excited about cooking with CBG! Like really, really, really excited! Did I mention I’m excited? Thank you for putting yourself out there to bring knowledge to people like me!
Aww thank you, Rogina!!!
We are excited that YOU are excited and finding success!!
Thanks for all the great info, never heard of CBG before now. ?
This is amazing!! Thank you for the opportunity to win!! My husband is a disabled veteran and this would really be awesome to use to help him.
Thanks so much for all the education about cannabis that you make available!! It continues to change my life and help me to have a life again.
Thank you for taking a stand for those arrested for marijuana possession! Keep it up!
I knew nothing about CBG before, so excited to try it!
It’s information like this that makes Cannabis use look informed and responsible, as it should be! ?
As always a great recipe that’s super easy to follow.
Learned a lot. Thank you so much
Always interesting and important to get more info! Thank you!
Cant wait to try CBG!!! I hope it is as amazing as it sounds!
great stuff thanks
You have been a mentor and a hero, and this is best explained by your words here from your post” “I want this to be a call to action to continue to work toward liberating this powerful and useful plant and freeing the people whose lives have been destroyed by its prohibition.
I’m laying in bed writing this post, drinking my coffee infused with this homemade CBG oil blended with a very helpful microdose of THC.
This simple act is legal in my state because many years ago, people did what I’m going to ask you to do today.”
And that’s precisely how I feel. I just got back to my prohib state from a legal state, and I’m more struck than ever at how patently wrong, unjust, and unfair it is………and Corinne’s passion just gives me the knowledge and the strength to be part of the solution!
I was just coming here to see what I could find out about making CBD oil for my (seems like almost daily) headaches. But here you are taking about CBG now, and i also have glaucoma, so now I’m wondering if maybe I should get both and try making a combo CBD/CBD butter…
Thanks for all you do. You’ve helped me come a long way with my cooking. I discovered in the last few months that it works better to use a meat thermometer in the crock pot while making cannabutter – because the LOW setting is usually too high & I hafta toggle back & forth between LOW & WARM.
My stuff is so much tastier now that it’s not burned!
Thanks for a great article, excited to experiment with CBG! Love all of the new info coming out on this amazing plant
Interested in the info on CBG, something I need to look more into.
The info/facts surrounding Marijuana felonies is horrifying. I do hope current statics are dropping from the Washington 2013 article. Lets work on the legalization
Really looking forward to trying CBG!
I’m loving the CBG oil I got from Sacred Smoke, which I learned about from Corinne. I’d love to make my own.
I can’t wait until Cannabis becomes fully legal in my state PA!
I’m so happy I stumbled upon this post from Sacred Smoke Herbal’s page! Big fan of Andrea’s and now I’m excited to learn more from you! Working CBG into my everyday routine is a goal of mine and this post makes it attainable for me.
Can’t wait to try the recipe out! I’ve some of Sacred Smokes products before and love them!
I can’t wait to try this method out!
I can’t wait to try this!!
Fantastic post, Corinne. Leading the charge toward approachable wellness as always.
I can’t wait to make some oils! Thanks for sharing your knowledge and encouraging other to share too!
Same! I’m looking forward to trying out this entire process.
I made the cbg oil In the Ardent FX ( got flower from Black Tie) and it has been a game changer for me. I use it 2x a day and it has helped with my aches and pains. I just ordered more flower from Sacred Smoke. Can’t wait to make another batch!
Can’t wait to make this tincture for myself.
Legal here in SK but the shops are way over priced with limited stock and still stigma but hopefully things will turn around. Would like to find something for headaches kind of hit and miss. Sometimes it works sometimes not.
Such great information, Can’t try this machine out. Thank You!!
I am sooo excited to try out CBG now!! Always looking for the best natural medicine to manage my side effects of oral. Hemp and leukemia. Cannabis is the best medicine?
Can’t wait to try and supply to my family and friends ! Thanks Corrine <3
Excellent info, I want a nova fx so bad.I already make some edibles, this can truly be easy breazy.
Thank you for the link for CBG flower and the information; I love creating my own infusions and edibles and I am excited to try making some CBD and CBG oil!
Thank you for the info. It’s great to learn something new!
Love Sacred Smoke! What a great blog post.
Great Info..I just started using CBD and making my own oils,tinctures & medibles…learned decarbing using Mason jar method. Now I know about CBG I will definitely be heading over to Sacred Smoke to purchase it. I’ve been looking into and drooling over the Ardent FX ever since I learned about decarboxylators. Ardent is noted to be the best! Thank you for the great info & links. Totally appreciate it!
Can’t wait to try CBG. Thank you for all the information!
Love reading your blog! There is so much I need to learn starting with how to lose weight using marijuana!? You are just as beautiful as a soul now as you were then! Glad you are doing so well❤️
Lots of things to learn. Cannot ait to try it all out. Thank you very much for sharing you knowledge!
Thank you for this informative post (as usual!). Super excited to try CBG. I’ve been making my own CBD oil in my Nova for awhile and it works great. Definitely considering the FX!
Just got some CBD plant, been wanting to try it out. Lots of good info on this website. Thanks Corinne!
I have a medical card but low THC formulations always come with high CBD, which gives me uncomfortable ‘aspirin head’. Discovered CBG and it is my wonder drug! For me, it does all the good things others say, plus my bladder feels like it’s 30 again. I can hold my water like a regular person. Seems like the hemp farms are getting it right (proper testing and paying attention to other CBs besides CBD) where Utah’s pharmacies are getting it wrong.
I dream about a tincture with 10% THC, 60% CBG and 30% CBC. I think this may help stave off post-menopausal breast cancer that runs in my family, and maybe help with osteoporosis according to online research. I’ll call it ‘The Old Lady’s Friend’.
I’ve been lucky, only known one friend who was jailed for cannabis. He wasn’t in for long, and we’ve suspected it was because his skin was light enough to pass for white in the courtroom.
Thank you for existing, just found your site a few days ago. Bonus that you’re friends with Sacred Smoke, she is cool. Just got your email sent last night (July 12) about the contest. Is it too late to enter? Not sure if I followed the instructions since they’re not coming up on the page. Being too sick to hold down a job, this prize would be an answer to my prayers for learning and making medicine.
Hey Beth! The giveaway ended on the 6th. However, we had SO much fun hosting this giveaway, we will definitely do more in the future 🙂

Hi Kathleen, I have a butter machine as well. What brand is yours and do you know what the temperature is for you decarb setting.
We are a small time CBG farm, we had about 4500 plants last year. I am just now experimenting with our product and our decarb machine. I am currently making salve, but I plan to make a MCT oil tincture infused with our CBG flower next, and an alcohol elderberry tincture for cold and flu season. What would your ratios/recipe be for making a tincture? Thanks for your help!
Do you know how strong you would like your tincture to be? You might be interested in our dosage calculator. HERE
A good starting point would be,
– 1 cup of MCT oil
– 3.5-7g decarbed cannabis (depending on the density and dosage of your plant material) with at least enough oil to cover the cannabis completely
1 teaspoon – 1 Tablespoon sunflower lecithin
Also, you can read more about it HERE if you would like.

I don’t know how strong I want it to be, I did follow your dosing for my first batch. Now I’m unsure how many drops to take a day. Our plants are 12% CBG, I did pull out all of the stems. So The bulk of it was just good cured flower. I’m just looking for a daily maintenance dose for long term use. I’ve been trying roughly 5 drops a day. Thanks so much for your knowledge.
How many grams and oil did you use?
You’ll need to know how much CBG is in your drop. A drop is about 0.05ml. Let’s say you have a 10ml bottle of CBG oil that contains 200 drops. And that 10ml bottle contains 1,000mg of CBG, each drop will contain about 5 mg of CBG. I’d be happy to help explain this more if unsure how much CBG you have. It’s recommended to start with 20mg to 40mg a day and increase it to 5mg a day.
I hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions!
– Victoria (Team Wake + Bake)
I am pretty new to the cannabis and any help greatly appreciated
Wonderful site, so much good information, thank you for all you do. I don’t see the entry form for the contest?
This is all new to me but with your help and the Ardent product, looks like it will be a lot easier. Thank you.
I’m a complete canna-newbie, but I am an herbalist so the amazing info you’ve laid out so clearly for us is extremely helpful. I do have a question on the cannabis dosing calculator. I know this sounds a little nerdy, but does the calculator have a print button somewhere I’m not seeing? Once I’ve put in my THC, CBG and CBD numbers I’d like to print it off to refer back to later, especially if I purchase a lot of CBG/CBD cannabis, but only process 4-6 grams at a time. I know I could put the info in again, but if I have notes or other comments about the flower, it would be easier to refer back to my print.
Thanks again for ALL of the information. I feel like I’m becoming more knowledgeable and comfortable with cannabis each time I use it or infuse it. It’s definitely a healthy journey!
Hey Annie! This would be a great feature. I’m putting it on the docket for future improvements!
