Gather your supplies

In order to make your cannabis oil capsules, you will need the following supplies:
-Capsules: You can purchase these online or at a local health food store. Be sure to get vegetarian capsules, as they are easier to digest than gelatin-based ones.
-A grinder: This will be used to breakdown your cannabis flower into a fine powder.
-A coffee filter: This will be used to strain your cannabis oil.
-A funnel: This will be used to transfer your cannabis oil into the capsules.
-An eyedropper: This will be used to measure out the cannabis oil for each capsule.
-A stovetop and pot: This will be used to decarboxylate your ground cannabis (heat it up in order to activate the THC).
-Stirring utensil: A wooden spoon or chopstick will do.
-Container for storing finished product: A jar with a tight fitting lid works well.

Decarboxylate your cannabis

If you want to make sure your cannabis oil capsules are as potent as possible, you’ll need to decarboxylate your cannabis first. Decarboxylation is the process of gently heating your cannabis to activate the THC and other cannabinoids.

The best way to decarboxylate your cannabis is to bake it in an oven at 240 degrees Fahrenheit for about an hour. Spread your ground cannabis evenly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 60 minutes. Let the cannabis cool completely before proceeding to the next step.

Infuse your cannabis into the oil

There are two ways to infuse your cannabis into the oil:

the ‘decarboxylation’ method, or;
the ‘raw’ method.

We recommend the decarboxylation method, as it results in a more potent final product.

To decarb your cannabis:

Preheat your oven to 245 degrees Fahrenheit.
Break your cannabis up into small pieces and spread it out on a baking sheet.
Bake for 40-60 minutes, stirring every 20 minutes or so. This process will help to activate the THC in your cannabis so that it will be more effective when infused into the oil.
Once your cannabis is finished decarbing, let it cool before proceeding to the next step.

Fill your capsules

Now that you have your capsules and cannabis oil ready, it’s time to fill your capsules. If you are using a small funnel, hold the capsule over the mouth of the funnel and pour in the cannabis oil. If you don’t have a funnel, you can use a small paperclip to help guide the oil into the capsule.

Once all of your capsules are filled, store them in a cool, dark place. Cannabis oil capsules are best if used within six months, but they will still be potent after that.

Store your cannabis oil capsules

Once you’ve made your cannabis oil capsules, it’s important to store them properly to maintain their potency and freshness. Store your cannabis oil capsules in a cool, dark place like a cabinet or drawer, and make sure they’re in an airtight container. You can also store them in the fridge or freezer if you prefer.

Cannabis oil capsules are a great way to get your daily dose of CBD or THC, and they’re easy to make at home with just a few simple ingredients. Follow the steps above to learn how to make your own cannabis oil capsules, and be sure to store them properly so they stay fresh and potent.
