Gather your supplies.
To make cannabis oil, you will need the following supplies:
-1 gram of hash or cannabis concentrate
-A double boiler or a pot and a metal bowl that fit snugly inside it
-1 cup of carrier oil (coconut, olive, vegetable, etc.)
-Cheesecloth or a coffee filter
-An airtight container for storage
You will need:
-1/8 ounce of weed
-14 grams of coconut oil
-Double boiler or saucepan
-Jar for storage
Slowly heat the coconut oil in the double boiler or saucepan. Once melted, add the weed and continue to simmer on low heat for 3 hours, stirring occasionally. After 3 hours, remove from heat and let cool slightly. Pour mixture through coffee filter into jar. Store in refrigerator and use within 2 weeks.
Cannabis oil is a thick, sticky, resinous substance made up of cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD, that is extracted from the cannabis plant (Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica). Cannabis oil is a cannabis based product obtained by separating the resins from cannabis flowers using a solvent extraction process. Cannabis oil can also be known as marijuana oil, Rick Simpson Oil (RSO), full extract cannbais oil (FECO), hash oil, dabs, shatter, or wax.
The extraction process involves using a solvent to extract the oils from the plant material. The most common solvents used in this process are ethanol and supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2). The resulting mixture is then evaporated to remove the solvent, leaving behind the oils.
Cannabis oils are typically high in THC content and low in CBD content. However, there are also cannabis oils that are high in CBD and low in THC. The ratio of THC to CBD depends on the particular strain of cannabis being used to make the oil. For example, a sativa strain may have a higher ratio of THC to CBD while an indica strain may have a lower ratio of THC to CBD.
Cannabis oils can be used in different ways depending on their THC and CBD content. For example, high-THC cannabis oils are typically used for their psychoactive effects while low-THC/high-CBD oils are more often used for their therapeutic benefits.
Some of the most common uses for cannabis oils include:
-Vaporizing or smoking
Coconut oil is a popular choice for making cannabis oil because it’s natural, effective, and has a high smoking point. You can use any type of coconut oil, but fractionated coconut oil is preferred because it’s already in liquid form and doesn’t need to be melted before use.
To make cannabis oil with coconut oil, you will need the following supplies:
-1 cup of coconut oil
-1 gram of decarboxylated cannabis (for every 1 cup of coconut oil)
-Double boiler or saucepan
-Cheesecloth or coffee filter
-Glass jar or container
1. Combine the coconut oil and cannabis in the double boiler or saucepan.
2. Heat the mixture on low heat for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally.
3. Strain the mixture through the cheesecloth or coffee filter into the glass jar or container.
4. Store in a cool, dark place and use as needed.
Slow Cooker Method:
This is probably the easiest way to make cannabutter or cannaoil. Simply throw your trim, bud, or ground weed into the slow cooker with some butter and let it simmer for 6-8 hours. You can also just add water instead of butter, but you will lose some potency since water and oil don’t mix. After the time is up, carefully strain the mixture using a cheesecloth or coffee filter into a glass container. Store in the fridge until solidified and then you can use it however you’d like!
Preheat your oven to 245 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread your ground weed onto a baking sheet and bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes or so. Once again, carefully strain the mixture using a cheesecloth or coffee filter into a glass container. Store in the fridge until solidified and then you can use it however you’d like!
What is cheesecloth?
Cheesecloth is a thin, gauzy fabric often used in cooking. It’s available in various grades, from very fine to coarse. The finer the cheesecloth, the more it will resemble a cloth diaper. Coarser grades are more like a loosely woven cotton fabric.
Why use cheesecloth?
Cheesecloth is used to strain liquids, such as when making homemade tofu or almond milk. It can also be used to line a baking pan when making a cake or cheesecake, to prevent sticking and ensure an easy release.
If you can’t find cheesecloth, you can substitute a coffee filter or clean muslin cloth.
Jar or container
You’ll need a jar or container to store your cannabis oil in once it’s been made. Any kind of sterile, food-safe container will work for this – just make sure it has a lid that seals tight. try to find a dark colored jar, since light can degrade the quality of your oil over time.
Decide how strong you want your cannabis oil to be.
When it comes to the recipes below, feel free to play around with the amount of cannabis you use. A general rule of thumb is to use 1 gram of cannabis per 1-2 tablespoons of oil. But if you’re a beginner, start with less and work your way up.
Once you’ve decarboxylated your cannabis (aka activated it), you’ll need to combine it with a carrier oil. This will help ensure an even distribution of THC throughout your final product. Any type of cooking oil will do, but some are better than others. We recommend using coconut oil, olive oil, or vegetable oil—these three oils are known for their ability to nicely bind with cannabinoids.
The ratio of cannabis to coconut oil will determine the strength of your oil.
To make a potent cannabis oil for your vaporizer, you’ll need to start with a high-quality cannabis strain. Then, you’ll need to decarboxylate your weed to activate the THC. finally, you’ll need to infuse your weed with coconut oil.
The ratio of cannabis to coconut oil will determine the strength of your oil. For example, if you use 1 gram of weed and 4 cups of oil, your cannabis oil will be very strong. If you use 1 gram of weed and 1 cup of oil, your cannabis oil will be less potent.
The process of decarboxylation removes the acidic properties of cannabis that make it difficult for our bodies to absorb THC. By heating your weed in the oven at 240 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes, you’re essentially “activating” the THC so that it can be used by your body more effectively.
Once your weed isdecarboxylated, it’s time to infuse it with coconut oil. The best way to do this is by using a double boiler. This setup ensures that your weed won’t get too hot and become damaged in the process.
Simply add your coconut oil and decarboxylated weed to the double boiler and heat it on low for 3-4 hours. stirring occasionally. Once finished, strain the mixture through a cheesecloth into a glass jar or container. Your cannabis oil is now ready to use in your vaporizer!
Grind your cannabis.
The first step is to grind your cannabis. You can use a regular grinder, but if you want to get the most out of your weed, invest in a grinder designed specifically for cannabis. This will break up your weed without also grinding up the stems and seeds, which can make your oil taste bitter.
Once your cannabis is ground, put it in the freezer for about an hour. This will make it easier to work with later on.
Place the cannabis and coconut oil in the slow cooker.
In a typical slow cooker, you would add all of your ingredients, put the lid on, set the temperature and let it cook. But when making cannabis oil, you need to be careful not to overheat the plant material, which can destroy the THC. So instead of using the regular “high” setting, cook the cannabis and coconut oil on “low” for 3-4 hours. You can also do this in a double boiler on the stovetop by placing a heat-safe bowl or pot atop a pot of simmering water. Keep the temperature below 245°F (118°C).
Cook on low for 6-8 hours, stirring occasionally.
Making cannabis oil for your vaporizer is pretty easy, and can be done in just a few simple steps. All you need is some good quality cannabis, some cooking oil, and something to heat the oil (like a crock pot). You’ll also want to make sure you have a way to filter the oil before you use it – we recommend using a coffee filter or cheesecloth.
Here’s a step by step guide:
1. Start by grinding up your cannabis. You’ll want to use around an ounce, but the exact amount isn’t crucial.
2. Next, add the cannabis to your cooking oil. We recommend using olive oil, but any type of oil will work.
3. Put the mixture in your crock pot or other heating device, and set it on low. Cook for 6-8 hours, stirring occasionally.
4. After 6-8 hours, your cannabis oil should be ready to use! To filter it, simply pour it through a coffee filter or cheesecloth into another container. Be sure to press down on the leftover plant matter to get all the good stuff out of it.
And that’s it! Your cannabis oil is now ready to be used in your vaporizer. Just add a few drops to the chamber and enjoy!
Line a cheesecloth over a jar or container.
Pour your solvent-oil mixture over the cheesecloth, allowing it to drip into the container. Once finished, twist the top of the cheesecloth to close it off and squeeze any remaining oil through. You can also use a coffee filter in place of cheesecloth if you prefer. Store your cannabis oil in a dark, cool place like a cabinet or drawer.
Pour the mixture over the cheesecloth.
Once the mixture has cooled, pour it over a cheesecloth. The THC-infused butter or oil will seep through the cheesecloth while most of the plant material will remain on top.
Gather the cheesecloth at the top and twist it to wring out as much of the butter or oil as possible. If you’re using butter, you can also press it with a spoon to get every last drop.
Pour the strained mixture into a dark glass container. Be sure to save any leftovers in the fridge for later use!
Let it cool and then store it in a cool, dark place.
Once you’ve strained your oil, it’s important to let it cool properly before storing it. If you store it while it’s still hot, it can degrade the quality of the oil. Let it cool on the counter for at least an hour, then transfer it to a dark glass bottle or jar and store it in a cool, dark place. Cannabis oil will last for several months when stored this way.
