Making infused coconut oil is a fairly easy process, albeit a time-consuming one. The process is similar to making any kind of infused oil. Here are a few things you will need to make your own:
- 7 Grams of your choice of Cannabis.
- Metal strainer
- A storage container of your choosing.
Start with a 7:1 ratio, that is 7 grams of trimmed cannabis flower (you can leaf the leaves if you desire, no one is judging) to 100 grams ( ½ cup) of coconut oil. Now for decarboxylation (or decarbing)! You can use any type of cookware you desire here, so long as it can maintain a temperature of 215 Fahrenheit.
Now, you bake your bud for 30 minutes and while you wait, you can start melting the coconut oil down, because coconut oil is already in a solidified state and needs to be melted down. This means you skip the boiling part you would have to do if you were working with a liquid state oil. Like canola, or olive oil for example.
Once it is done baking and your oil is liquified, mix the two and then put it back into the oven.
This time it should be in there for one full hour and thirty minutes. Once it is done, let it cool before pouring the mixture through the strainer, it should be covered with a cheesecloth before you strain it into a storage container (mason jar, plastic tub, bowl, etc) of your choice.
