Cannabis-Infused Coconut Oil Recipe
Step 1: Decarboxylate Your Cannabis
Always decarboxylate your cannabis before making cannabis-infused coconut oil or cannabutter. The best results have been found using the Nova Decarboxylator from Ardent Cannabis, which can set you back about $260.
Step 2: Infuse The Coconut Oil
A) Combine the following in a crockpot on warm or low (warm is usually sufficient in most crockpots): *Try to keep oil near 160°-180f for best results*
B) Add 1 Cup Organic Decarboxylated Cannabis (about 7g or 1/4 oz.) [dosage note: At 20% THC this works out to about 29 mg THC per teaspoon. If you work with stronger cannabis, say 30% THC, each teaspoon would be about 42 mg THC per teaspoon.]
C) Stir every half hour or so.
D) After about 2 hours of heating and steeping, turn off the crockpot and allow the oil to cool before moving onto the next step.
Step 3: Strain Your Oil
A) Set up your strainer so it fits snugly in a container. Line with a large piece of cheesecloth.
B) Slowly pour plant matter and oil into the strainer.
C) Using a string or twist tie, gather the cheesecloth around the plant matter and secure it.
D) Pour oil into a pint jar and place it in the fridge until cool. Seal with a lid. Store in refrigerator or in a cool, dark place.
Cannabis-Infused Honey Recipe
Spread 7-8 grams of your cannabis buds on the baking sheet and place them in the oven. Set the temperature between 210 degrees to 230 degrees Fahrenheit. Note: Cannabis evaporates at 320 degrees. It’s when the bud starts losing its color, fragrance, and flavor properties. Keep the temperature low and go slow.
Heat the matter for at least half an hour to 40 minutes. Don’t forget to flip the cannabis. Note: We want to make sure that we have cooked the cannabis evenly at all points to ensure that gives us the most potent form.
- 7-8 grams of your favorite cannabis strain
- 1 cup of organic honey (Use 7-8 grams of cannabis per 1 cup of honey)
- Crockpot or cooker
- Cheese cloth and String
- 1 quart mason jar (must be air-tight)
Take your decarboxylated cannabis and wrap it up in the cheesecloth and tie it with the string.
Place the wrapped cannabis in the cheesecloth in the mason jar
Add one cup of organic honey to the jar.
Please the mixture in the mason jar in the crockpot or cooker.
Pour water into the crockpot or cooker until the mixture in the mason jar is completely surrounded by it. (Don’t overfill, or submerge the jar)
Close the lid on the crockpot or cooker.
Set the temperature to the lowest setting, and keep it cooking for 8 hours.
Make sure to check the mixture every 2 hours, open the lid and make sure the pressure is fine. *Opening and closing the lid of the crackpot will help us get rid of the pressure building inside. An unchecked pressure can break the mason jar.
After baking for 8 hours, turn the crockpot or cooker off and let the mixture cool down.
Once the jar has cooled down, use a spoon to remove the cheesecloth from the mixture.
Work the cheesecloth by squashing it and crushing it, this will help to extract the most of your cannabis.
Your cannabis-infused honey is complete. It should be stored in the refrigerator or a cool dark place. Enjoy!
