Basically Cannabis Oil is very similar to cannabutter but in oil form. As mentioned before on previous recipes cannabinoids are oil soluble and can only dissolve, bind and store in fats. So what’s better to use aside from butter? You got it right! It’s Oil! Now Cannabis Oil is a very versatile product. In its raw form it can be taken directly by putting a drop on your tongue or under it to get quicker absorption in the bloodstream. Furthermore, this can be used as an essential ingredient in cooking edibles. This obviously can be used as an alternative to Cannabutter.
The space for creativity in this recipe is that you can use any kind of Oil to act as base to the edible. Coconut, Olive or clarified butter? Any will be excellent and can result in a good product. But it does not end there as any edible oil can be utilized. So without further ado. Let’s get the wheels turning and see what we can get out of this process.
Cannabis Oil Recipe
40 grams Decarb Marijuana Buds
2 cups Coconut Oil (Unrefined)
Things you’ll need
- Bowl or measuring cup (large)
How to make Cannabis Oil
1.) Decarb your Buds. Use a tray and line this with parchment. Spread the buds on the tray. Place in an oven for around half an hour to an hour at 240 degrees F. Mix the buds around every 10 mins to distribute the heat evenly.
2.) Grind Decarbed Cannabis buds and add in a Crockpot together with the Oil of choice and add water around 50% ratio to the oil. Place on the stove and set on low heat and allow to gently simmer and infuse for around 2 hours. (Add water if necessary) Make sure the mixture does not get too hot or you will risk vaporizing the cannabinoids.
3.) Set aside to cool until the crock pot is cool enough to touch by hand. Line your strainer with cheesecloth and place on top of the mason jar. Filter the mixture by slowly pouring over the strainer. Allow to drip for a few moments. Get all 4 corners of the cheesecloth and squeeze the cannabis until you get all the goodness in it. Viola! You now have your own homemade Cannabis oil.
