Gather your materials. You will need 1 ounce of good quality cannabis buds, 1 cup of coconut oil, 1 cup of water, a crock pot, a double boiler, a cheese cloth and a strainer.
1. Decarboxylate your cannabis. This is an essential step in order to activated the THC in the plant material. Preheat your oven to 240 degrees Fahrenheit and spread your cannabis out on a baking sheet. Bake for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
2. Combine the decarboxylated cannabis, coconut oil and water in the crock pot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, stirring occasionally.
3. Set up your double boiler with water in the bottom pan and the crock pot insert on top. This will help to gently heat the mixture and prevent burning.
4. Cook on low heat for another 6-8 hours, stirring occasionally.
5. Let the mixture cool slightly and then strain through the cheese cloth into a clean container. Store in a cool, dark place until ready to use.
Decarboxylate your cannabis. Preheat your oven to 245 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread your cannabis evenly on a baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes. This process will activate the THC in your cannabis.
Cannabis oil is a potent, concentrated form of marijuana. It can be consumed in edible products, vaporized, or even used as a topical ointment. Cannabis oil is made by extracting the THC compound from dried cannabis buds using a solvent. The most popular solvents are butane, CO2, and alcohol.
There are several methods for making cannabis oil, but the most common is to decarboxylate your cannabis first. Decarbing is when you heat your cannabis in order to activate the THC compound. This process is also known as “activating” your cannabis. THC is not active in its natural state; it needs to be heated in order for you to feel its effects.
The first step in making potent cannabis oil is to decarboxylate, or activate, your weed. Preheat your oven to 245 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread your ground cannabis evenly on a baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes. This process will activate the THC in your weed and make it easier for the cannabinoids to bind to the fat cells in your oil.
Once your weed is activated, you’ll need to choose a solvent. The most popular solvents are butane, CO2, and alcohol. Butane and CO2 are both highly effective at extracting THC from cannabis buds; however, they can be dangerous if not used properly. Alcohol is a much safer option, but it’s not as effective at extracting THC.
Once you’ve chosen your solvent, you’ll need to add it to your activated cannabis and let it sit for 24 hours so that the THC has time to bind with the solvent molecules. After 24 hours, strain your mixture through a coffee filter or cheesecloth into a clean container. Your potent cannabis oil is now ready to use!
Combine your ingredients. Add your coconut oil and water to the crock pot and set it on low. Once the coconut oil has melted, add your decarboxylated cannabis. Stir occasionally.
After you have decarboxylated your cannabis, it is time to combine it with the coconut oil and water. This will make a mixture that is potent and can be used for many different purposes.
Stir the mixture occasionally to make sure that the cannabis is evenly distributed. You want to make sure that all of the plant material is covered by the oil and water.
Let the mixture cook on low for about 4 hours. This will allow all of the cannabinoids to be extracted from the plant material.
After 4 hours, turn off the crock pot and let the mixture cool. Once it is cool, strain it through a cheesecloth or coffee filter to remove any plant material.
The final product is a potent cannabis oil that can be used in many different ways. You can add it to recipes, use it topically, or even take it orally.
Let it simmer. Let your mixture simmer on low for 6-8 hours, stirring occasionally.
The longer you let your mixture simmer, the more potent your oil will be. If you are short on time, you can let it simmer for as little as 3 hours, but be aware that this will result in a weaker potency.
Strain your mixture. Set up your double boiler and cheese cloth over it. Pour your mixture through the cheese cloth to strain it.
It is very important to use a good quality cheesecloth or coffee filter to strain your mixture. You don’t want any plant matter in your final product. If you have a coffee filter, put it inside of the cheesecloth for extra filtration.
Pour your mixture through the cheesecloth or coffee filter into the double boiler. Be sure to squeeze the cheesecloth or coffee filter to get all of the mixture out.
Place the double boiler on the stove over low heat and let it simmer for 3-4 hours. The longer you let it simmer, the more potent the cannabis oil will be.
After 3-4 hours, turn off the heat and let the mixture cool. Once it’s cooled, pour it into a clean glass jar or container. Cannabis oil will keep in a cool, dark place for 6 months to 1 year.
Store your cannabis oil. Pour your cannabis oil into a dark glass jar and store it in a cool, dark place.
Once you have made your cannabis oil, it is important to store it properly. Pour your cannabis oil into a dark glass jar and store it in a cool, dark place. This will help to keep the potency of the oil high and prevent it from going bad. Cannabis oil will be good for around six months when stored in this way.
