I'm just checking that as I have use hemp seed oil in the recipe instead of olive oil- will it still solidify. I'm asking this as mine has been in a cold fridge for 14hrs and still looks the same as when first put in. 

Maybe I'm just being impatient and I will have to wait 48hrs :(  @ratdog

Did you add beeswax? just guessing that hemp oil would have no reason to solidify on its own

hi @caringmum :stoned:

 

did you put bee's wax in at any stage.?

 

if you didn't do worry you can heat the oil slowly in slow cooker and add bee's wax

 

stir for a bit (you can add essential oils at this stage to if needed) then pour in to final container

I've got to the stage where I removed the cannabis using a cheesecloth , then put the liquid into the fridge so the oil could solidify. "Still waiting for this to happen before I warm-up and add my beeswax

 

The only other way IF the oil doesn't set, is to draw the oil off by using a syringe @twigs

Original recipe instructions

Place the water and oil solution into the coldest part of the fridge, after 24 to 48 hours (if your fridge is at the correct temperature) the olive oil will solidify, this will allow you to seperate the water from the oil, discard water

Alternatively, the oil and water mix can be placed in the freezer

You should now be left with a slightly green olive oil in solid form

@Jimboo -that's what I thought - but I couldn't understand why olive oil could solidify and not hemp oil?

Saw this, hope it helps explain:)

 

Every fat and fatty acid has a range of temperatures at which is freezes (congeals, gets solid). To complicate matters a bit more, most fats and oils are actually combinations of many chemical types of fats and fatty acids; not all of them are solidifying at the same temperature.

As a general rule, saturated fats (animal fats, but also coconut and palm oils) congeal at higher temperatures than unsaturated fats. This is why butter or ghee is solid at room temperatures, but olive or cotton oils are liquid. It is, in fact, the main distinguishing point between fats and oils.

Coconut oil freezes at a higher temperature than mustard oil because it's a more saturated fat.

OK - thanks @Gojitangie  

So now I know Hemp oil does not freeze:) 

 

When I use hemp oil in the furture I'll add the beeswax as soon as I have finished using the cheesecloth.

ONwards and upwards - Take  oil/water out of fridge- re-warm - then add the beeswax  :yep:
