How To Make Your Own Herb-Infused Cannabis Coconut Oil
There’s a ton of great cannabis products out there, but cannabis coconut oil might just be the next best thing. Oil infusions are an excellent way of getting all the health benefits of both cannabis and coconut oil, and using them in many healthy applications. Besides, making herb infusions right at home is already gaining popularity for its versatility and medicinal properties; why not add cannabis to the mix to create a delicious and aromatic herbal infusion?
Keep In Mind
Suggested dried herbs you can mix and match or use alone for their own medicinal properties:
There are two ways to make your herbal cannabis coconut oil infusion:
Cold or Solar Infusion: Fill a glass jar 2/3 full of your chosen dried herbs, including the decarboxylated cannabis. Fill the jar with coconut oil and make sure that all the dried herbs are thoroughly covered. Use a tongue depressor or a clean chopstick to run down the sides of the jar so as to remove any air bubbles. If there is still space, add more oil on the top of the jar. Put the lid in and allow the mixture to rest for at least two weeks and a maximum of four weeks in a warm, sunny location. Frequently check the infusion in case you spot mold, rancidity, or bubbles. Keep the jar on top of a tray or dish as it’s common that some oil will leak out during the infusing period.
Hot Oil Extract: Prepare the glass jar in the same manner as you would for a cold or solar infusion. The difference with this method is that you would be placing the glass jar inside a pot on top of a stove or inside a crockpot filled with some water and heated with the lowest setting. Place a towel on the bottom the pot; the herbs and oils can be infused for 8 hours, or up to three days for maximum potency and strength. If you are using a crockpot and won’t need to use it for some time, you can even let the mixture steep for as long as 2 weeks. Make sure to keep your eye on the pot and increase the water as it evaporates.
