Why Is Coconut Oil Popular For Cannabis Infusion?
Cannabis compounds, known as cannabinoids, have a particular affinity for fats. And when it comes to fats, refined coconut oil takes the crown!
Unlike olive oil or butter, canna coconut oil boasts an impressive 80% saturated fat content, making it a magnet for cannabinoids during infusion. It can hold onto more of those precious compounds, resulting in a more potent final product.
Coconut oil also has a higher smoke point, meaning you can heat it at a higher temperature without worrying about burning it. So, you get all the benefits without sacrificing taste or potency. When extracting the full potential of cannabis, cannabinoids and unrefined coconut oil make the perfect pair.
Cannabis Coconut Oil Recipe
Discover a simple way to create your cannabis coconut oil with just a few basic items! Check out our separate recipe if you’re in the mood for cannabis-infused butter.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 cup of coconut oil (go for raw and virgin for the best results)
- 10 to 15 g of your favorite strain’s buds
- A double-boiler or improvised setup (just a bowl and saucepan)

- A cheesecloth
- A mason jar or any resealable glass container
We have you covered with expertly formulated cannabis capsules that harness the power of cannabinoids and make cannabis coconut oil. Easy-to-dose, mess-free, and all the hard work done for you!
Step 1 – Decarboxylate Your Cannabis
There’s a simple and crucial step you need to know about decarboxylation. Don’t worry; it’s not as intimidating as it sounds! Decarboxylation means heating the cannabis at a low temperature to unlock its full potential, like toasting herbs to bring out their flavors.
Here’s what you do: preheat your oven to 240-250℉ (115-121℃) on low heat or slow cooker while you grind your cannabis. Then, spread it evenly on a baking sheet and pop it in the oven for 40 to 45 minutes. Keep an eye on it since different strains may react differently to the heat. You want it to turn from vibrant green to a lovely golden-brown hue.
This simple step will boost your cannabis potency, making it perfect for cooking. So, if you plan to infuse your cannabis with liquid coconut oil for yummy edibles, don’t skip decarboxylation; it’s the key to unlocking the goodness!
Step 2 – Melt Your Coconut Oil
Start by setting up a DIY double boiler: fill a pot with water, put it on the stovetop, and let it come to a low boil. Don’t have a double boiler? Grab a small saucepan, fill it with water, and place a slightly larger glass bowl on top.
Next, it’s time to introduce your solid coconut oil to the party. Transfer it to the upper pot or bowl of your double boiler. As it gets cozy over the heat, watch it perform its mesmerizing melting act. And here’s the secret: keep it on the heat throughout the entire process to let the magic unfold. Get ready to witness the transformation!
Step 3 – Add Your Decarbed Weed
Pop in your main ingredient, the bud, and give it a good stir to make sure it mixes perfectly with the liquefied oil.
Now, take a moment to admire the magical transformation. Behold the beauty of the resulting suspension – it’s glossy and vibrant, with a mesmerizing display of shimmering deep green flakes, just like a school of reality-altering fish.
Step 4 – Simmer the Weed-and-Oil Mixture for 3-6 Hours
You have a wide window to play with the cooking time to customize the strength to your liking. For a milder concoction that boosts your mood and gives you a healthy body buzz, cook for around three to four hours.
But if you’re up for a powerful high that might keep you on the couch for the rest of the day (and maybe part of the next), aim for five to six hours. Remember, choose wisely and consume responsibly, especially if you have any immediate obligations that might require you to leave the house.
Step 5 – Strain the Infused Oil
Grab a cheesecloth and stretch it over your colander or strainer. Now, place the colander on top of a mason jar or any glass container that can be sealed tight. Carefully pour the hot weed-infused oil through the strainer and into the awaiting container. Use your spatula to scrape out every last bit from the strainer.
Let the oil seep through the double filter for a moment or two. Fold the cheesecloth edges around the cannabis leaves, creating a small pouch. Here’s where you get all the extra goodness – squeeze that pouch from every angle to extract every precious drop of potent oil. You wouldn’t want to miss a drop of this liquid gold. Let the flavor and aroma take you on a delightful journey!
Step 6 – Allow the Infused Oil to Resolidify
You’ve got two options: let it sit on your countertop, and within a few hours, it’ll transform into a perfect, solid state. Or, if you’re eager to dive into its deliciousness sooner, stash it in the fridge for a quick result.
You’ve just created a heavenly cup of pure, potent infusing coconut oil, always at your fingertips whenever those cravings strike!
