Gather your supplies

You will need:
-1 cup of ground cannabis flower or trim (decarboxylated)
-1 cup of coconut oil
-Slow cooker / Crockpot
-Spatula / Spoon
-Cheesecloth or coffee filter
-Strainer
-Mason jar or other storage container

Decide how much oil you want to make- the recipe is 1:1

To make your own cannabis coconut oil, you’re going to need a few supplies. First, you’ll need some high-quality cannabis. You can use Trim, Bud, or Shake, but the better the quality of your starting material, the better your end product will be. Next, you’ll need some coconut oil. You can find this at most grocery stores in the cooking aisle. Finally, you’ll need a means of heating your oil (a double boiler works best) and some storage containers for your finished product.

Now that you have your supplies, it’s time to get started! The first step is to decarboxylate your cannabis. This is a process of heating the cannabis to activate the THC. You can do this in a number of ways, but we prefer the oven method. Preheat your oven to 245 degrees Fahrenheit and spread your cannabis on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 40-60 minutes, stirring every 20 minutes or so. Once your cannabis is finished decarbing, it should be dry and crumbly to the touch.

The next step is to combine your decarbed cannabis and coconut oil in your double boiler (or other heating apparatus). We like to use a 1:1 ratio of cannabis to oil, but you can adjust this based on personal preference. It’s important to note that coconut oil has a high smoke point, so you don’t have to worry about overheating it and ruining your batch. Heat the mixture until it reaches 245 degrees Fahrenheit and maintain that temperature for 30-60 minutes stirring occasionally.

Once the allotted time has passed, remove your mixture from heat and allow it to cool slightly before straining it through a cheesecloth into a storage container. Be sure to squeeze all of the liquid out of the cheesecloth so that none of the Cannabis goodness is wasted! And that’s it! You’ve now made your very own Cannabis Coconut Oil!

Weigh out your cannabis

The process of making cannabis coconut oil is pretty straightforward. Start by weighing out your cannabis. You’ll want to use about 28 grams (1 ounce) for this recipe. If you have a digital kitchen scale, now is the time to break it out. If you don’t have a digital kitchen scale, you can use the entirely scientific “eyeball it” method. Just make sure that all of your cannabis is roughly the same size so that it will cook evenly.

Grind your cannabis

Use a grinder to grind your cannabis into a fine powder. If you don’t have a grinder, you can use a food processor, but it won’t be as effective.

Coconut oil has a relatively low melting point, so it’s important to get your cannabis as fine as possible. This will help the THC infuse into the oil more evenly and efficiently.

Add your cannabis to the Crock-Pot

Cannabis coconut oil is a really versatile way to consume cannabis. It’s great taken alone or baked into all kinds of edibles – most strains of cannabis beautifully complement the flavor of coconut oil!

Coconut oil is produced by extracting the fat from coconut meat. It’s solid at room temperature but melts quickly when heated. This makes it ideal for use in recipes that call for melted butter or oil.

Coconut oil is also high in lauric acid, which has antimicrobial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. Cannabis is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties, so this combination makes for a powerhouse topical salve that can be used to treat everything from eczema to joint pain.

Making cannabis coconut oil is really easy – all you need is some quality cannabis (bud or trim), a blender, some cheesecloth and, of course, a Crock-Pot.

Here’s how to do it:

1. Decide how strong you want your cannabis coconut oil to be and calculate accordingly. For example, if you’re using 1 ounce of bud with a 20% THC content, that equals approximately 20mg of THC per ounce. So, if you want your final oil to have 50mg of THC, you would need to start with 2.5 ounces (or 71 grams) of bud. If you’re using trim or shake with a 10% THC content, you would need 5 ounces (or 142 grams) to get the same final result.

2. Grind your cannabis finely using a coffee grinder or herb grinder. The finer the grind, the better the extraction.

3. Add your ground cannabis and just enough water to cover it to the Crock-Pot and set it on low heat. Cook for 6-8 hours, stirring occasionally so that the mixture doesn’t stick to the sides or burn.

4. After 6-8 hours, turn off the Crock-Pot and let it cool slightly so that you can handle it without getting burned. Then strain your mixture through a cheesecloth into another container and squeeze out as much liquid as possible – this is your infused water!

5. Next, add your infused water and an equal amount of coconut oil to the blender and blend on high until smooth – this could take up to 5 minutes depending on how powerful your blender is

Add your coconut oil to the Crock-Pot

Whether you’re using a Crock-Pot or saucepan, making cannabis coconut oil is pretty simple. The hardest part is waiting for it to be done!

Pour your desired amount of coconut oil into the cooking vessel. For every cup of oil, add one ounce (28 grams) of decarbed cannabis. So, if you’re using a cup of oil, use a cup of decarbed cannabis.

Stir the oil and cannabis together, then put a lid on the Crock-Pot and set it to “low” heat. If you’re using a saucepan on the stovetop, set it to low heat as well.

Set the Crock-Pot to low heat and let it cook for 6-8 hours

Making your own cannabis-infused coconut oil is a great way to reap the benefits of both CBD and THC. This process infuses the coconut oil with THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids, making it a great option for those looking to make their own edibles or topicals. The process is relatively simple and can be done in a Crock-Pot or similar slow cooker.

To make cannabis coconut oil, you will need:
-1 cup of shredded coconut
-1 cup of coconut oil
-1 gram of cannabis per 1 cup of oil (you can increase this amount if you like, but be sure to start small as edibles can be very potent)

Start by grinding your cannabis into a fine powder using a coffee grinder or similar device. Be sure to remove any stems or seeds from your Cannabis as these will not be infused with the oil and will only add unnecessary bitterness to the finished product.
Once your cannabis is ground, add it to the Crock-Pot along with the shredded coconut and coconut oil. Set the Crock-Pot to low heat and let it cook for 6-8 hours, stirring occasionally.

After 6-8 hours, your cannabis coconut oil should be finished. Totest it, simply place a small amount on your tongue and see how you feel after an hour or so. If you find that you don’t feel anything, you can either cook it for longer or add more cannabis to the mixture next time.

Stirring occasionally

Cannabis coconut oil is a really versatile way to consume cannabis. It’s great taken alone or baked into all kinds of edibles – most strains of cannabis beautifully complement the flavor of coconut oil!

Coconut oil is produced by mixing coconut flakes with humidity and warmth until they liquify. This process is also known as “fractionating”. The end result is a product that is about 75% saturated fat.

Coconut oil has a high saturated fat content, which makes it ideal for infusing with THC and other cannabinoids. This process is known as “decarboxylation” and it activates the THC in the cannabis so that it can be infused into the coconut oil.

THC is only one of many cannabinoids found in cannabis, but it’s the one that gets you high. Other cannabinoid include CBD, CBN, and CBC – each with their own unique effects. You can learn more about cannabinoids here.

To make your own cannabis coconut oil, you will need:
-1 cup of organic cocnut oil
-1/8 – 1/4 ounce of cannabis buds, depending on desired potency
-A small saucepan
-A coffee filter or cheesecloth
-A glass jar for storage
-Optional: A candy thermometer (this isn’t strictly necessary, but it helps insure correct temperatures during infusion)

After 6-8 hours, turn off the Crock-Pot and let it cool

Slow cookers, also known as Crock-pots, are a popular kitchen appliance because they make it easy to cook meals without having to watch them constantly. A Crock-pot can also be used to make infused oils, like cannabis coconut oil, which can be used in a variety of recipes or on its own as a potent topical application.

Making cannabis coconut oil is a fairly simple process that requires only a few ingredients and some patience. The most important thing to remember when making infused oils is to never let the oil get too hot, as this can cause the cannabinoids to degrade.

Here’s what you’ll need:
-1 cup of coconut oil
-1 cup of ground cannabis (decarboxylated)
-1 Crock-pot

Instructions:
1. Preheat your oven to 245 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread 1 cup of ground cannabis evenly on a baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. This process is known as decarboxylation and it activates the THC in the cannabis so that it will be more bioavailable when ingested.
2. Add the coconut oil and decarboxylated cannabis to the Crock-pot and stir well.
3. Set the Crock-pot to “low” and let it cook for 6-8 hours, stirring occasionally.
4. After 6-8 hours, turn off the Crock-Pot and let it cool slightly. Using a cheesecloth or coffee filter, strain the oil into a clean container. Be sure to squeeze all of the oil out of the plant material so that none of it goes to waste.
5. Your cannabis coconut oil is now ready to use! Store it in a cool, dark place and use it within six months for best results

Once it’s cooled, use a cheesecloth to strain the oil into a jar

It is important to let the oil cool completely before attempting to strain it. If the oil is too hot, it will be more difficult to strain and you run the risk of burning yourself. Once it’s cooled, use a cheesecloth or coffee filter to strain the oil into a jar. Be sure to squeeze all of the oil out of the plant matter. You can store cannabis coconut oil in a cool, dark place for up to six months.

And you’re finished!

Your cannabis coconut oil is now ready to use! You can use it in any recipe that calls for oil, or simply eat it by the spoonful. Be sure to label your finished product clearly, so that anyone who consumes it knows that it contains THC. Enjoy!
