Converting Your Dried Cannabis Into Cannaoil

Mix this oil in with your regular cooking oil to infuse any recipe with cannabis.

Total Time Required: 2 hours

6 grams dried cannabis
2 cups oil (olive, canola, or coconut)

1. Heat the oven to 250°F|120°C. Spread the cannabis out into an even layer on a baking sheet. Bake the cannabis, taking care not to let the temperature go over 250°F|120°C and burn (if this happens, you can lose potency). Bake for about 35-40 minutes, then remove from the oven and cool before grinding into a coarse powder. This decarboxylated cannabis will keep in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for up to 2 months.

2. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-low. Add the decarboxylated cannabis and cook, taking care not to let the temperature go over 200°F|93°C, for about 45 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit, undisturbed, for 10 minutes, before straining through a fine mesh-sieve set over a bowl. Press carefully with a spoon to extract as much oil as possible.

The cannaoil will keep, covered and refrigerated, for up to 8 weeks.

** Please keep track of how much dry cannabis is equivalent to the cannaoil to ensure you are following the daily limits imposed by your physician’s prescription.
