Decarboxylate your cannabis
Before you can make your cannabis olive oil, you need to decarboxylate your cannabis. This is a process of heating the cannabis to convert the THC-A into THC. You can do this by spreading your ground cannabis on a baking sheet and baking it in the oven at 240 degrees Fahrenheit for about 40 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 245 degrees Fahrenheit
Preheat your oven to 245 degrees Fahrenheit. If you don’t have a decarboxylation machine, you can use an oven, toaster oven, or even a slow cooker set on low heat. Place your cannabis in an oven-safe dish and bake for 30-40 minutes. Keep in mind that the smaller the dish, the quicker the process will be.
Place your cannabis on a baking sheet
Preheat your oven to 240°F (115°C). Break your cannabis up into smaller pieces, spread it out on a baking sheet, and bake for 50 minutes. This will “decarboxylate” your cannabis, active the THC, and make it more potent.
Bake your cannabis for 30-40 minutes
Preheat your oven to 245 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread your cannabis on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake for 30-40 minutes. This will “activate” the THC in your cannabis, making it more potent.
Infuse your oil
Cannabis olive oil is a great way to infuse your food with THC. THC is the main psychoactive compound in cannabis that gives you the feeling of being high. By infusing your olive oil with cannabis, you can make your own edibles at home. The process is simple and only requires a few ingredients.
Place your decarboxylated cannabis in a mason jar
Make sure your cannabis is decarboxylated. This is an important step if you want to experience the full effects of THC. You can learn how to decarb your cannabis here.
Once your starting material is nice and decarboxylated, place it in a mason jar. Fill the jar with just enough olive oil to cover the cannabis. If you’re using a lot of starting material, you may need to use more than one mason jar.
Tightly screw on the lid of the mason jar(s) and place them in a saucepan filled with water. The water should come up about halfway up the sides of the jar (not all the way to the top).
Fill the jar with olive oil
Pour the olive oil into the canning jar until it is full. If you are using a 1-quart (946 ml) jar, you will need 1 quart (946 ml) of olive oil. If you are using a 1-pint (473 ml) jar, you will need 1 pint (473 ml) of olive oil. You can use more or less olive oil, but be sure to use an equal amount of cannabis.
Cannabis-infused olive oil is a great way to make your own edibles or topicals at home. The process is relatively simple and only requires a few ingredients. All you need is some high-quality olive oil, a bit of cannabis, and a canning jar. With this infusing method, the THC is activated and will be ready to use in about 2 weeks time.
Seal the jar and place it in a dark, cool place
Once you’ve added your ground cannabis and olive oil to the jar, screw on the lid tightly and place it in a dark, cool place like a cupboard or pantry.
Leaving the jar in a cool, dark place allows the cannabinoids to infuse into the olive oil without degradation from exposure to heat or light.
Infuse the oil for 2-3 weeks, shaking the jar daily
The process of making cannabis olive oil is very similar to making regular olive oil, with one key difference: you need to infuse the olive oil with cannabis. This can be done in a number of ways, but the simplest method is to infuse the oil for 2-3 weeks, shaking the jar daily.
Once the oil is infused, it can be used in any recipe that calls for olive oil. It can also be used as a topical treatment for various skin conditions.
Strain your oil
The first step to making cannabis olive oil is to strain your oil. You can do this by using cheesecloth or a coffee filter. This will remove any impurities from the oil. Then, you can add your cannabis to the olive oil.
Place a cheesecloth over a bowl
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are the two most prevalent active cannabinoid chemicals in cannabis. However, a November 2012 study published in the British Journal of Pharmacology states that both THC and CBD work together to produce relief from pain and inflammation. To further this claim, a 2015 review published in the journal Pain found that cannabis strains with both THC and CBD are effective in treating chronic pain better than those that contain only THC.
Olive oil has a long history of use as a base for salad dressings, sauces, marinades, and cooking oil. It’s also used as a natural skin moisturizer, hair conditioner, and medicinal salve.

-1/8 ounce (3.5 grams) of high-quality cannabis buds or trim
-1 cup (240 ml) of extra-virgin olive oil
-A small saucepan
-A coffee filter or cheesecloth
-A dark glass jar with an airtight lid
Pour your oil through the cheesecloth
Slowly and carefully pour the hot oil through the cheesecloth-lined strainer into the clean bowl. Gather the cheesecloth around the Solid and give it a good squeeze to remove as much oil as possible. Let the oil cool completely. Once cooled, Pour it into a clean, dark glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. Your cannabis olive oil is now ready to use!
Squeeze the cheesecloth to remove all the oil
Remove the cheesecloth from the bowl and gently squeeze it to release any remaining oil into the bowl. Stir the oil and let it cool to room temperature. Once it’s cooled, you can transfer it to a jars for storage. Your cannabis olive oil will keep in a cool, dark place for up to six months.
