Thing first step in making your own cannabis-infused coconut oil is weighing out 7 grams of marijuana.
Preheat your oven to 215°F, then break up the weed using a cannabis grinder or a pair of scissors.
Cover the bottom of your baking dish with the ground cannabis, and seal tightly with aluminum foil.
Bake the cannabis in the 215°F oven for 30 minutes to activate the cannabis. This process is called decarboxylation, and it helps to create a more potent oil infusion.
Remove from the oven, leaving the aluminum foil tight over the top. Keeping it sealed helps prevent cannabinoid-rich vapor or steam from escaping the container, and allows it to settle back into the herb – again, helping with potency.
Melt your coconut oil in a medium-size pan over low heat while the baking dish filled with herb cool.
After the herb dish has been left to cool for about 15 minutes, uncover and pour the melted coconut oil over the cannabis. Use a spoon to mix until combined; the goal is to coat all of the dry herb with oil.
Cover tightly with the aluminum foil once more, and return it to the 215°F oven for an hour and a half. If possible, it’s best to stir/agitate the mixture once or twice while it’s baking. Doing so helps the cannabinoids distribute more evenly.
Remove the dish from the oven, and let cool with the aluminum foil cover on for 15-20 minutes – until you can comfortably handle the dish.
Place a double layer of cheesecloth over the opening of whatever storage vessel you will be using to store your infused oil. Carefully pour your infusion over the cheesecloth, straining out all chunks of plant matter in the process.
Gather up the sides of the cheesecloth into a bundle, and squeeze out as much remaining oil as possible….You’re all done! It is that easy to make your own cannabis-infused coconut oil.
You’ve just created a batch of activated cannabis-infused coconut oil, and now you can make a delectably potent batch of cookies, edibles, or you can use this anywhere you would use “regular” coconut oil, making it perfect for multiple use possibilities with this infusion are endless!
It helped me with the pain in my leg after having 16 pins and 2 plates to put me back together. The infused cannabis oil helps with my debilitating backaches as well.
Looking into buying a butter machine to make it easier till then this my old recipe.
Hope this recipe helps you create your own cannabis infused medicine to improve your quality of life!
