We began Simply Add after wanting to make CBD edibles and skincare products, but we could not find one resource on the internet for creators looking to make these products on their own.
Our intentions were simple:
- Easily make CBD products that had predictable dosages.
- Use solventless CBD oils specifically designed for baking, cooking, and crafting.
There were several problems we encountered:
- Most recipes discussed using THC extracts from marijuana.
- We wanted to use CBD extract from hemp.
- The CBD concentrations in different companies vary greatly. There was no standard, which means dosages could vary greatly if you used different CBD oils.
- After days of calling around, we found out most companies sold CBD oil products made with harsh chemical processing like ethanol and butane CBD oil extraction. These have been found to leave residual solvents in the products, which is why we wanted solventless CBD oil products.
