How to Make Hemp Seed Oil
Dry out the hemp, placing it outside where it can get direct sunlight until completely dry.
Place the hemp material in a plastic bucket and pour in just enough isopropyl alcohol solvent in the bucket to dampen the material.
Grind the material in the bucket with a stick or pole that is free of any chemicals, until the leaves are crushed in the bucket.
Add more of the isopropyl alcohol solvent until it just covers the hemp material in the bucket. Use the stick to move the material for about three minutes until it is completely saturated with the solvent.
Drain the solvent into an empty bucket and add fresh solvent to the hemp material. Add just enough to barely cover it and stir with a stick for another three minutes.
Drain off the solvent again into the bucket that you drained the liquid into the first time, leaving the hemp material in the first bucket.
Toss out the plant material that is left in the first bucket and run the drained solvent-oil mixure from the second bucket through a coffee filter into a clean container that holds at least a half gallon.
Pour the filtered solvent-oil mixture into the rice cooker until it is about 3/4 of the way full and then turn the setting on the cooker to high.
Watch the level of the solvent-oil mixture and add more of the filtered mixture into the rice cooker as the solvent is boiled off until you have all the mixture in the cooker.
Add about a teaspoon of water to the mixture as it is nearing the end of the cooking process when you see that it has boiled down to about 1 inch in the cooker.
Pick up the cooker with oven mitts and gradually swill the liquid around to release the last of the alcohol from the mix. Then pour the hemp oil into a stainless steel container and shut off the rice cooker.
Place the stainless steel container with the hemp oil on a coffee warmer and allow it to sit for a couple of hours until you see the bubbling has stopped.
Pour the oil into a bottle and allow it to cool down before using.
