Cannabis Coconut Oil
- Grind cannabis in blender or coffee grinder until fine fine. Shake and rub it through sieve or use a sifter to remove any remaining larger particles.
- Bake powdered cannabis on foil lined baking sheet at 250º for30 min. This process decarboxylates the cannabis changing inactive THCA into bioavailable THC that gets you medicated.
- Melt oil in crockpot. Add cannabis. Simmer on low for 3-4 hours. Temperature should be 160-190º F. Stir at least once every 30 minutes.
- Strain oil through sieve into airtight container, pressing cannabis with back of spoon to extract as much oil as possible or use cheesecloth. An old T-shirt can be used in a pinch.
Discard plant matter.
