How to Make Cannabis Coconut Oil: Make this Easy, Healthy and Potent Cannaoil at Home

coconut oil cannabis straining

When I want to make really potent, really healthy edibles or topicals, this cannabis coconut oil is my go-to infusion.

It’s the most popular recipe here on Wake + Bake and it’s the basis of all of the recipes in Wake & Bake: a cookbook. Instead of making a bunch of different butters and tinctures, you just make this cannabis infused coconut oil (lovelingly dubbed “green monster oil” in the book), and plug it in to any of the recipes in the book.

Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy.

cannabis-cookbooks

I use this coconut oil almost every day.

Whether I’m rubbing it into sore muscles, baking it into vegan or paleo edibles, tossing a teaspoon into a smoothie or some coffee, or cracking open a jar of weed lube, I seem to find a way to use this oil in new ways all of the time.

In this post, we’ll talk about:

  • why cannabis and coconut oil belong together… for-eva
  • what decarboxylation is and why it’s the step you can’t skip
  • how lecithin can boost the absorption of cannabinoids and how to incorporate it into your cannabis oil recipes
  • a simple method for making cannabis coconut oil in a crock pot, with alternatives like the mason jar method and using a Magical Butter MB2

And allllll sorts of other fun things. By the time you leave this post, you will be your local expert on cannabis infused coconut oil. So be prepared to make condescending remarks to all of your friends and neighbors when they bring up edibles, and be sure to scoff when someone hasn’t heard of the word “decarboxylate”. You’ve earned it.

Why Coconut Oil + Cannabis?

Coconut oil is arguably the best oil for creating strong marijuana infusions, topicals and medicinal edibles because it has a high saturated fat content. That makes it capable of absorbing more THC, Terpenes, Flavinoids and Cannabinoids than butter or other types of oil. While butter has a saturated fat of about 60%, coconut oil is about 90% saturated fat.

Plus… You can do almost anything with it! You can make this kind of thing (cannabananabread)…

It’s perfect for those on high-fat healing diets for epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, and cancer (like the ketogenic diet). It’s also great for vegans, paleo people and… really anyone without a coconut allergy who would like to ingest cannabis without smoking or vaping.

Paleo Edibles: Cannabis Guacamole

Or this kind of thing (Holy Guacamole)…

It’s also really versatile. I spent almost a year of my life trying to put it in every edible I could think of and wrote a book about it (!)… 100’s of recipes later, I’m still not bored with this tasty marijuana infusion.

If you’ve never used coconut oil for your edibles recipes (or if you’ve never tried edibles) make sure to test your oil first. It is strong and it’s not fun to overdo it on edibles. Trust me. I had a run in with a cannabis infused grilled cheese that I’ll never forget, and I want to help everyone avoid that if possible.

weed salve

Or even this kind of thing (pain relieving Cannabis Salve)…

If you don’t have a cannabinoid tester like the tCheck (which I LOVE), you have to test it on yourself and do a little dosage math. When playing the guniea pig, always start low and go slow. Try 1/8-1/4 tsp and wait an hour or two before taking more in 1/4 tsp increments. Once you know what dose is effective for you, you can incorporate it into recipes.

Wake & Bake uses a 1 teaspoon dose as a measurement for each recipe and lets you know how many teaspoon doses are in each batch. You can easily dilute the recipe with more coconut oil, cut the recipe in half, or double it to adjust your dosage to exactly what works for you.

Decarboxylation: Converting THC-A to THC

Always decarboxylate your cannabis before making cannabis infused coconut oil or cannabutter. You can read the full post on decarb to get an in depth look at what’s happening when you decarboxylate, but the short and sweet of it is this:

When you heat cannabis at a controlled temperature, the THC-A molecule transforms into the psychoactive and potent molecule THC. If you want edibles and topicals that are effective for pain management, anti-anxiety, nausea, sleep aid, glaucoma or any other medically approved use of THC. 

I use the Nova Decarboxylator every time I decarb because it effectively transforms 100% of THC-A to THC without any loss. Most home decarb methods are unreliable, and can waste as much as 30% of the THC originally present in your material. I did the math and the Nova is a no brainer for me since it saves me at least 1/3 lb cannabis every year and makes my edibles and topicals much more effective.

You can read more about the Nova here or read the article on other home decarboxylation methods here.

Lecithin + Potent Edibles

Lecithin is a key ingredient in cannabis infused coconut oil. Lecithin helps with absorption of cannabis oil into your intestinal walls and is used as an emulsifier. The small particles in your cannabis oil (or butter) are absorbed more easily, making it more potent and effective.

If you’re testing your oil with a cannabinoid tester (like the tCheck) your mgs of cannabinoids won’t change after adding lecithin, but you won’t have to use as much in order to get the same effects. After incorporating lecithin, I found that I only had to use 1/2 of my typical dose to remain pain free.

I use sunflower lecithin because I’d rather avoid processed soy products and GMO’s. This powdered lecithin from Swanson’s has been my go-to and has lasted over a year.

Frequently Asked Questions about Making Marijuana Coconut Oil

Before you send an email or search the comments section, here are the answers to the three most common questions on this post.

  • Will it smell up my house/apartment/dorm room? Yes. Decarboxylation and cooking cannabis in the crock pot are smelly endeavors. You can eliminate this smell completely by using a Nova Decarboxylator and using the virtually smell-proof Cannabis Oil in a Mason Jar method or by making your oil in a Magical Butter MB2..
  • If I don’t have lecithin now, can I make the coconut oil now, order lecithin, and add it later? Yes. If you’re chomping at the bit to make edibles but don’t have this ingredient on hand, make your oil now and then reheat it and stir your lecithin in.
  • Should I add water? This is a hotly debated topic in the world of homemade edibles, and I’ve landed on the side of not adding water. There’s a great article and BadKat’s CannaPharm that talks more about why water is unnecessary and leads to a less effective cannabis oil. In my experience, it leaves oil tasting bitter and can make your oil go bad quickly. I prefer to do a couple of weed washes if my oil doesn’t taste great.

Cannabis Coconut Oil Tutorial

STEP 1: DECARBOXYLATION

Decarboxylation will make your oil potent, activated and ready-to-use.

1. Preheat oven or toaster oven to 240°.

2. Spread onto a pyrex baking dish (or a baking sheet if it’s what you have on hand):

1 Cup (approximately 7g) of trim or broken up buds 

3. Cover with tinfoil. Bake trim for 40 minutes.

4. Cool and store in an airtight container until use. Use an old gift card to scrape any goodness that sticks to the pan or pyrex dish.

STEP 2: INFUSING THE COCONUT OIL

coconut oil cannabis crockpot

1. Combine the following in a crockpot on warm or low (warm is usually sufficient in most crockpots):

1 Cup Coconut Oil [I like the big jug of unrefined Nutiva because I use it a lot and the flavor/scent is really delightful. If you don’t like the taste of coconut or you’d like to save some money, the refined stuff is a bit cheaper and doesn’t have a tropical smell]

1 teaspoon- 1 Tablespoon Sunflower Lecithin: If you reeeeallly don’t like the flavor of lecithin use 1 teaspoon. Otherwise, use 1 Tablespoon per cup. 

*Try to keep oil near 160° for best results* For even better results, try the Magical Butter Machine.

2. Add:

1 Cup Organic Decarboxylated Cannabis (about 7g or 1/4 oz.) 

Stir every half hour or so.

After 8-12 hours of heating and steeping, turn off the crockpot and allow the oil to cool before moving onto the next step.

3. Set up your strainer so it fits snugly in a container. Line with a large piece of cheesecloth.

4. Slowly pour plant matter and oil into the strainer.

5. Using a string or twist tie, gather the cheesecloth around the plant matter and secure.

6. Squeeeeeeze  that sh*t. Save this satchel to make High Chai.

7. Pour oil into a pint jar and place in the fridge until cool. Seal with a lid. Store in refrigerator or in a cool, dark place.

8 Bonus Tips For Making Effective Cannabis Infused Coconut Oil Every Time

      1. Try to use organic shake or trim whenever possible.
      2. You can make smaller or larger batches using a 1:1 ratio, making sure to use enough coconut oil to cover your decarboxylated cannabis completely.
      3. If your oil ever begins to smoke, remove from heat immediately and let it cool a bit before beginning the process again with your crockpot on the lowest setting. It’ll probably still “work” but you’re burning off some of the incredible compounds that evaporate at higher temperatures. If you constantly find yourself overheating your oil in your crockpot or on the stove (guilty), check out the Magical Butter machine.
      4. If you don’t have a crockpot, you can make the oil in a pot on the stoveor a makeshift double boiler. Just follow the same instructions and make sure that your heat source is on super low and never starts to smoke.
      5. I’ve totally abandoned my crockpot for a MB these days. I honestly could not say more about what an incredible tool this is if you make lots of oils, tinctures or topicals. I’ll admit that I was a bit skeptical at first, because I don’t believe that making cannabis oil is hard (by any means), but my taste testers agree that it makes better oil (maybe because of the temperature stability and shorter duration). I really think it shines in making quick honey and cannabis tinctures. I’ve put that machine through a LOT. I am not a stranger to the customer service department at MB and they’ve always been there to answer questions and help me out when an experiment goes very very wrong. If you make more than 10 batches a year or if you’re a slave to convenience, the MB machine is where it’s at. If you’re ready to retire your crockpot, you can use the magical butter discount code “wakeandbake” here and get a $35 off coupon from Magical Butter.
      6. You don’t have to finely grind your cannabis no matter what you’re cooking in (in my experience, it makes it harder to strain, leaves a bunch of plant material in that makes for a “greener” taste, and doesn’t improve potency). However, if you’re using buds, break them up a bit before you add them to the coconut oil.
      7. You can also make cannabis infused coconut oil using hash.
      8. Have fun! Don’t fret over your canna-oil when it’s in the pot. People on the internet make this much more complicated then it has to be. Not me… but you know… other people on the internet. I was writing a cannabis cookbook and had to overthink it, but you totally don’t. This is a simple process and it should be enjoyable, not stressful. Just follow the instructions below, adapt or substitute for what you have on hand and don’t be afraid to experiment.

Much love!

      Do you still decarb prior to the Magical Butter Machine or do you let the machine decarb?

          Hi Corinne. I was wondering…in the instructions it says use a cup or about 7 grams of herb to one cup of oil. I have 14 grams of medical grade shake. I was hoping to make 2 batches out of it following this recipe. I notice that 7 grams of my shake might not be a whole cup. That’s just from looking at it in the bag. Do you think 7 grams exactly will be enough for a cup of oil assuming that there might not be a whole cup of herb, or should I reduce the amount of oil to keep it potent? I’m hoping to be able to take teaspoon size doses each day. I’m also a veteran smoker so I have a decent tolerance and also usually eat about a joint’s worth of avb everyday, which makes me feel quite nice in the mornings 😉 thanks in advance! And great article!

        The machine was supposed to decarb but many complained that the MB2 failed to get got enough.Now a new iteration of the operators manual instructs the user to decarb prior to firing up the machine.I have an MB2 and I decarb before using it just to be sure.

      The only thing I would add is that you can use water all you want, it just helps the taste to drain the water from the oil. Cool it and it’ll separate. I do it when I use the less palatable plant matter to remove some of the water solubles that foul the taste.

        Hi Corinne,

        This looks like a great recipe. I have three questions, please accept my apologies if you have already answered these:

        Are the temperatures that you mention in centigrade or fahrenheit?
        What is the size of your ‘cup’ in either OZ or ML (I am in the UK and cups are not a standard measurement here).
        Should the end product be refrigerated and what is its approximate shelf life?

        Many thanks in advance.

        I may have missed it but where is your tcheck comparison of making oil with oven decarbing and without? From my research decarbing is completely temperature based so the process should work whether it is done in oil or air. according to the lab tests done at http://marijuanagrowershq.com/decarboxylation-marijuana-alchemy/ 200 degrees f and 1 hour and 40 minutes and things are completely decarbed.

    Hi,

    First of all thank you so much for Wake and Bake, it is a great resource! I’ve been making my own infused coconut oil for a while using a similar method, and am now super tempted to invest in a Magical Butter Machine. I am embarking on a venture with a friend making topicals (specifically lipstick) and have a couple questions that I was having difficulty answering on the Internet machine. First of all, do you think that the same infusion method work for Almond Oil? It is one of our ingredients, along with Coconut Oil, and we wanted to add as much infused product as possible. Second, would lecithin help increase absorption into the skin? ANy advice you might have would be great and again than you! Also hit me up via e-mail if you would like us to send you some samples once we go into production.

      Hi Stranger!

      I found new evidence on this while making a new formula for weed lube. It won’t show up if you put it directly on your skin, but if it gets up in any of your mucous membranes (eyes, mouth, vagina, etc.) it can potentially show up on a drug test. You can read more about it in this article. If you’re just using it on achy joints (knuckles, knees, low back) you should be fine as long as you thoroughly wash your hands before eating and don’t hop in a bathtub before cleaning the applied area completely. But weed lube would be a no no. Sorry for the confusion. I’ll update this post with the new info.

      Hope that helps!

        It will show up on a drug test even if you only use it topically. I make this. Gave some to my neighbor who didn’t use any other cannabis for a third degree burn. The burn healed in 10 days and she tested positive when her doctor did a standard drug test for pain management.

          It’s possible a burn wound acts differently in absorption to healthy skin.

            July 28, 2015 at 3:51 pm

            I agree. If the skin is broken or damaged, it would probably affect how much is absorbed into the blood stream. I’m not totally positive, but it seems to me that that would make it much harder to pass a drug test.

            Hi there I found your citation and thank you for posting my article in reference to this topic.

            You should always assume that you are going to test positive on a drug test when you use cannabis in any form, including topicals. I think this the the most socially responsible advice to give because there are a plethora of scenarios that cannabinoids can enter your bloodstream.

            And while hemp seed oil-anything off of the shelf at Whole Foods is probably not going to trip any wires–it is my understanding that the military and some law enforcement agencies are telling their employees that the trace amount of THC in those products may trip alarms on the more stringent drug tests they give their employees and advising them to avoid these products entirely. But don’t quote me on that, I can’t remember the source. Just an FYI.

    I used 1 oz of some solid work with 1 cup of coconut oil. Tried the soy lecithin for the first time and man did it make the difference. I used the double boiler method because I know my heat on that but adding the decarb process and the lecithin made this my best run by far. I ate one brownie, kicked in right at 20 minutes and I’ve been faced for about 2 hours now. Bravo

      It can be any type of lecithin, but most soybeans grown in the usa are “Round Up Ready” GMOs that are sprayed with a shit-ton of glyphosate, so I stay away from products that aren’t explicitly organic or GMO free.

      Good luck!

    please,
    REMEMBER to COVER your buds when decarboxylating, unless you want all those potent vapors escaping into your kitchen/oven…

    and may I ask, why are you decarbing at a higher temp than cooking? and I think decarb for that long may spoil the goods? I know there’s different ways for everything but this seems vastly unusual..

    on another note,
    I dig the simplicity and I love your emphasis on one of the key ingredients: love 🙂

      I was wondering how do you “cover” the buds while decarboxylating?

      I’ve just started working on how to make better and more potent stuff.

      Thanks!

    Hi Corrine, I have a quick question. I’ve been madly searching and researching the best way to cook with ganja, and it will be my first experience so I want to get it right! When using this product, is there any aftertaste with the finished products? I’ve heard all over that there is a nasty “weed” aftertaste. Thanks so much!

      Hi Kristina!

      It depends on who you ask. The weed we grow is organic and, depending on the strain, it can have a fruity, spicy or dank taste to it. I personally enjoy the taste of ganja and I cook to compliment it, not to cover it up. I’ve ben experimenting with a cold water wash that removes some of the flavor and scent from the oil, because I know some folks aren’t so lucky in the quality of ganja they cook with. I’ll be posting it very very soon… stay tuned!

      Much love,
      Corinne

    Thanks for posting this! It’s that time of year again for me to bake with my vaporizer leftovers and I wanted to use coconut oil instead of the usual butter because of a new medical diet I’m on that doesn’t allow dairy.

    I have three questions for you. If I’m using an Iolite and I usually vape my bowl twice before dumping the leftover, I’m imagining I might need to double the amount I use? I’d say it’s about medium brown in color. I could put more fresh bud with it but I feel like I’m always getting my calculations wrong when I’ve done this in years past and they always come out too strong.

    Also, I have wondered whether I might put this in an oven safe dish to bake at 160 in my oven or toaster oven, since I don’t have a crockpot and so then I can really exact the temp. Opinions on that?

    And lastly, if I have more time to let it cook, would it behoove me to let it go longer?

    Many thanks again!

      Hi Amanda!

      Sorry for the delay on answering your questions, but… Here goes!

      1. I can’t really answer this one accurately. It’s hard enough to guesstimate dosage when you know the strain and you’re talking about never been vaped bud. Since you’ve already tried adding fresh bud and it was too strong, you could always double the amount of your ABV and if it’s not strong enough, do another run of it with more ABV or nugs.

      2. Yes! You can totally use your oven for this purpose. There are some good tutorials online about making oil in the oven that are worth the google search.

      3. In my experience, not really. You’re more likely to lose a lot of the terpenes, flavinoids and cannabinoids that make canna oil an awesome way to ingest marijuana. It’s about more than just THC it this ballgame. The other compounds are important for creating a balanced and medicinal oil that can create an enjoyable experience for the user.

      I hope that helps!

      Much love,
      C

    Hi Corinne! Let me start of with saying, I love your recipe. It was simple and easy to follow; something I’ve been relentlessly searching the internet for a recipe that I wasn’t scared of lol!
    However; I do have a few questions, and I would truly appreciate it if you can find the time (I’m sure in your busy schedule) to answer them.
    1. Should I allow to oil to cook longer if I make the batch with 2 cups instead of 1?
    2. My oil didn’t come out black; from what I see on the interwebz that seems to be the most popular color for it to be finished as. Is it alright that mine wasn’t black? I used crushed buds (not trim or shake), could that have anything to do with it?
    I cooked mine for 6 hours, and it has a really pretty golden/green color. I used a candy thermometer to moderate the temp; however, as you suggest I might end up going with a Magical Butter machine JUST for the temperature security.
    P.S. Thank you again for the easy recipe! (: <3

      Hi L!

      1. No. You shouldn’t need to up your time unless you go upwards of 4 cups.
      2. It’s totally fine that your oil didn’t come out black. Using buds will give you less chlorophyl filled material to work with, so the color you got is just fine and dandy.

      If you decide to get in on the magical butter magic, here’s a $25 coupon for the machine as part of their referral system. I’m actually working on a post right now in praise of my mb machine. I made three batches of oil and tincture yesterday for lube and salves and cookies, and I’m so inspired by how much you can get done and the great quality that it puts out.

      Thanks so much for reaching out! Let me know if you have any other questions 🙂 <3

    may i suggest: decarbing the weed, first. this was its *active*
    Add WATER to the oil, keeping the temp very low/high melt, never letting the water dry up, cooking for 4 hours, stirring every hr.
    Strain into large mouth pyrex container, set in refrigerator overnite.
    The water will have removed ALOT of the dark green color, and the oil and water have separated fully! gently remove the oil layer to a paper town, and pat gently to remove all water. TOSS the ugly water!
    thanks for a great recipe. peace!

      Hi D!

      Thanks for sharing! I tried adding water to oil while extracting on many occasions with shoddy (and sometimes messy) results. It seemed as if the batch had to be cooked for longer and that temperature control was difficult for that length of time. That’s not to say it didn’t work, but it didn’t seem to me to be worth the hassle. It was good oil with good flavor, but I’m always looking for the best, easiest and most constant results. I did a bunch of research and have started experimenting with cold water washing after the oil is done, with great success. Bad Kitty from Canna Pharm suggests four washes, but I’ve concluded that you can stop at two and still up the quality of your product without much added input.

      I’ll have a post up soon 🙂

    Hi Corinne,

    I have a question about using trim for cannabis coconut oil. I will be making a product that needs to be consistent. I have read that using trim requires the use of two times the amount of cannabis you would use versus using flower. The only formulas I have found involve using flower. I need the product I am making to contain 200mg of cannabis infusion per package. Purchasing trim will be most cost-effective for my venture versus using flower. I plan on buying the Magical Butter machine to make the coconut oil. I realize you are under contract with an edible company already, so if you could point me in the right direction, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

      Hi Ruthyann!

      I think what you’re trying to say is that you’re trying to get the smell or taste out of your oil… ? If so, I just did a cold water bath purification three times that eliminated some/most of the taste/smell, but not all of it. I’ll be posting that very soon.

      I personally like the taste and smell of cannabis oil, so this has never been a huge point of experimentation for me until recently in working with the elderly. The artichoke dip recipe I posted earlier works phenomenally well with stuff that tastes pretty green and there are a ton of recipes in Wake & Bake that work with the flavor of cannabis instead of trying to cover it up (which imho makes it taste worse).

      Let me know more about what you’re trying to achieve and I’ll look into it.

    I use Reggie and stems and whatever is left behind. Use approximately equal parts (example: 3 cups coconut oil to 3 cups weed mix. After toasting, wrap all up in a square of cheesecloth and tie ends together to seal. Steep in small crock pot ($10 @ dollar store) for 3 hours on low. Turn off to cool but remove cheesecloth bag to strainer with tongs, or just hold up to drain every bit of liquid out. You’ll want it all. Compost cloth bag with spent weed mix. Wait til “butter” cools to place in airtight container for fridge.
    Use in place of butter or oil in baking or cooking recipes.

    Hi there-

    Love your site! I am hoping you can answer some questions about CBD. I am interested in making an infused coconut oil using flower that is high in CBD, low in THC. I have researched the internet high and low to find the perfect temperature/time to decarb for highest CBD, but I’m just more confused than ever! Do you have any info you can share? Any idea what temperature I should use, and for how long? Also, if I’m using the oil to bake, will heating it again (350degrees in the oven for 30min to make brownies) change the potency? You are awesome, and a savior. Hope to hear from you soon.

    Please help me. Yesterday, I tried your method. I accidentally burned the first batch on the stove. I’ve made countless batches of canna oil using regular veg oil or canola oil in the past, and my brownies have melted folks faces off. This was the first time I’ve used coconut oil, so I’ve got it on the double boiler right now. It’s been on there simmering for almost 5 hours now, and not even started to turn green. I’ve added the lecithin, I decarboxilated it before… I have no idea why but it is just not infusing I dont’ think. It’s still clear.
    Two questions – is there any way to save the burned batch? or has it really just lost all it’s potency?
    If this oil isn’t turning green, what is going on here? I figure if it hasn’t turned green like my other oils then something is not going right.

      Well, that question has a complex answer. Part of the process of drying and curing weed decarboxylates it to a degree. The act of burning it (like in a joint) will decarboxylate it fully. So when you want to cook with it, since you’re not burning it, you need to do different things to get the same chemical reactions to occur. So you decarb it to make the chemical reaction that usually takes place as you smoke it, but in a way it is usable for cooking. Hope that made sense.

    This oil is also amazing as a lubricant for sex. We’ve used coconut oil by itself for years for this and then decided to try canna oil for the same thing. Best sex ever. Thanks for the article. I’m trying it your way and comparing to my own. I usually decarb for 16-18 minutes on 310, but wanted to try the lower way. The lecithin is new to me – happy you can add it after the fact as I couldn’t find any at the store and will get some at the health food store next week.

    Just want to throw out there for anyone reading that you can use your vaped weed from a vaporizer as decarbed weed. You just need to make sure you’re vaping at a low temperature. Some scoff at this, but I know what I’m talking about and you can make amazing edibles with it. The trick is to have a vape with good temp controls and vape it low. Then you can get buzzed from the vape and destroyed from the baked goodies. Two for one!

    I have a question. I have Stage IV Breast Cancer spread to most of my bones and I have been making the RSO method but a doctor friend of mine said that making the CBD Paste using Coconut Oil is much healthier, stronger and much easier. He said to lightly grind the weed, spread out on a large dish and heat at 240 degrees for an hour. Then he said to use a pan maybe around 7″ deep to cook the oil in. He said to put the marijuana in the bottom of a mason jar pour enough coconut oil to completely cover the top of it (maybe an 1/8th” over) and to heat water in the deep pan and place the mason jar (with a tight fitting lid) into the pan of water making sure to check the temperature first. He said it should heat for 10 1/2 hours at 176 degrees. I’m not going to bake with it so I would like to know is there anything wrong with not straining it? He said he never strains it! I would rather do that if it doesn’t get moldy in the refrigerator or something.

      So sorry for the delayed response… There is nothing wrong with not straining it if you’re going to use it pretty quickly and if you keep water out of it. If you’re making a batch to last you several months, you can always put half of your batch in the freezer so you can make sure it doesn’t get contaminated in the fridge and go bad. Let me know how it goes 🙂

      Much love,
      c

    I just wanted to thank you for the simple and effective recipe. I have a vision impairment and could still follow along just fine. I’ve searched for such a recipe for a long time and yours puts it all together perfectly. I also like how it uses a manageable amount, a quarter. A lot of recipes say to start with two ounces or something. I also bought your book. A teaspoon does it! The buzz feels holistic and wonderful. The combination of cannabis and coconut oil has a very healing nature. I love this oil!

    I followed all steps and cooked 14g herbal in 2 cups of coconut oil. Used MBM2 on oil setting. De carbed at 240F for 30 min.
    I tried up to 20ml but it does not work itself. Only when I vape some it start working. Is it a usual thing?

    It will show up on a drug test even if you only use it topically. I make this. Gave some to my neighbor who didn’t use any other cannabis for a third degree burn. The burn healed in 10 days and she tested positive when her doctor did a standard drug test for pain management.

    Like your site and the way you present your info….

    Been hunting like crazy for this info or should I say solid info!

    Well the questions relates to ratio!

    What is the correct ratio for once?

    Im thinking of making oil infused pills, tired of the biscuits/brownies and all the calories (hopefully not the only stoner that likes to keep busy while high)
    but seriously what is the ratio & how many pills can I expect to make – Anyone have an Idea.

    Like I have Tutankhamen 32 T( (ok ok some say only 24-28 THC) but none the less F*** good $hit….

    So what is the ratio?

    1 Cup = Cannabit to 1 CUP of Coconut oil?

    Really would like to find out then what the potency of this would be & how many pills one could make from this, if anyone knows please reply.

    I will be using the trim in the pills. A lot of the THC is wasted during straining, I have tested it and in my years of experience with baking I can tell you that you lose about 20% of the high – So If you prefer high over good tasting biscuits then keep the trim in but if you dont like the thought of that, come on over and join the pill revolution.

    So now Im onto the pill making process & would like to use what you have mentioned above to make pills, so would like to find out

    1. Correct Ratio
    2. The high of the ratio you mention on the site 1 CUP oil to 1 CUP Cannabis.
    3. Pills – how many pills can one make from this ratio

    Your help, advice and guidance most welcome.

    Thanks.

    Does it have to be stored in the fridge? I don’t use it to cook. I just ingest 1ml of the oil about 6 times daily. I keep it in a Tupperware container in my room. I open the container and use a 1ml spoon to take out and just put in my mouth. It would be an inconvenience to keep putting it in the fridge and then warming it each time I need it. Is this ok in your opinion?

    I followed your recipe exactly and mine turn brown does that mean I burned it? I never saw any smoke, it never boiled. It just very slowly moved around in the crockpot on low for 5 hours. I haven’t tasted yet but it’s just not the color I’m used to. I always did it on the stove with the waterbase/oil method results were green. I’m really concerned because I used a quarter of a pound and 54 ounces of coconut oil (and the lecithin).

      Was it brown when the oil cooled and solidified? Or just when it was liquid? You’d be able to smell it if it’s burnt… Did you try the oil? What was the potency of a tsp like?

        it looks like fudge (in solid or syrup in liquid). It has a nice strength though, not too strong or too weak to do the job. It does not taste burnt. My ‘material’ was kinda dark.. I guess it’s ok, just looks weird. I had not ever de-carbed before (when making butter), maybe that had something to do with it. Anyway thanks for the help.

    Never give up on treating your cancer for there is a cure and my husband was once a cancer patient, am cythia lisa living in Belgium. Two years ago my husband suffered from lungs cancer and the doctor told us that nothing could be done, I was so frustrated and the thought of loosing my husband was so unbearable that I lost all hope.

    One faithful day my daughter told me that she had found a cure for cancer and she found it on the internet, she ask me to watch Rick Simpson’s video with her. Although i didn’t believe her I watched it anyway just to please her and after watching it I discovered that it brought my hope back and i wanted to give it a try.

    I and my daughter started searching for legitimate source that could provide the Rick Simpson’s hemp oil that would cure my husband. We read a lot of testimonies online of how a lot of doctors has helped a lot of patients cured their cancer with hemp oil and it was on one of this sites we found a sole distributor of RSH oil,Rick Simpson, we contacted him Via his Email: greategbesutemple@gmail.com, or call +2348161554365 which we found in the testimony we read.

    RSH oil is the best ever, I followed his instruction and now my husband is healthy and I am so excited.

    Thanks to RSH oil for helping my husband cure his cancer with his and for also making life worth living once again. We all love you cythia lisa …. God Bless

    The coconut oil has to be organic? If I can’t find it, can I replace it with something else? (I live in Greece)
    If I can’t find sunflower lecithin, can I replace it with something else?
    If I cook it in double boiler what temperature do I have to have? Does the time of cooking change?
    And lastly, how much oil will I have at the end? (in gramms or ml)
    I hope I wasn’t tiring and I’m looking forward for your reply.

    Maybe I missed it, but what is the purpose of the lecithin? And how important is it? I am “paleo” and would prefer not to have the additive. BUT if it’s very important to the potency and effectiveness of the recipe, a tablespoon in a cup of oil won’t kill me.

    I guess I’m more curious of the chemistry behind it? Is it that the fatty acids in the lecithin help boost the potency and/or our bodies absorb those acids easier and faster? Sorry, I’m rambling and guessing.

    Thank you. I’m excited to try this recipe.

    Hi Corinne,
    I recently had a go at making the coconut oil, used about 1.5g of well-dried bud (we didn’t decarboxylate because we thought it was dry enough and wasn’t necessary) with about 250ml of coconut oil.
    We placed this into a pyrex bowl with 100ml of water and sat it in a pot of boiling water on the stove on low heat for about 5 hours.
    After this I made a date slice with most of the oil that was produced, while pleasant tasting, there was really not much effect from the oil itself.
    Could this have something to do with no cooking involved in the process (that would normally take place with making brownies or cookies)?
    Really dig this site, look forward having a go at more and more recipes.
    Thanks,

    Love your blog. I’ve tried different methods in the past with no results. Just tried this tonight from your directions, the only thing different was that I covered the dish with aluminum foil during Decarb. I followed all of your directions exact. I did use a slow cooker that maintained the 160 degree or around there, however I had to leave the top off to keep the temperature. Would this make a difference? Anyways it’s been 2 hours and I’m 2 tsp in and feel nothing. I combust every day, am I just using too small of an amount? The flower isn’t the best quality I’ve ever had but it’s definitely not the worst. Any advice?

Put your oil and herb into it, put the lid on, and then put it in a water bath of boiling water for an hour hour and a half. You can pour that out easily into your cheese cloth. Great site.

      Hi Alan!

      I’ve done lots and lots of testing on this, from an hour to an entire week of cook time. I prefer shorter steeps because the flavor is better and they’re plenty potent for me, but the feedback I’ve gotten from experienced readers is to cook it longer, so I went with that when I wrote it a while back. Perhaps it’s time for an update. The best oils I’ve ever made come from the mb machine and that only cooks for an hour or two, so I’d gather that it’s uneccesarry to let it steep for longer than that. Thanks for the question and stay in touch 🙂

    I’ve read that wetting freshly decarboxylated cannabis with a +50% ethanol water solution and a small amount of vitamin B6 or limonene, will increase the THCa and CBDa conversion yield. The ratio should be around .094g of B6 or limonene per 1 gram of cannabis (@20% potency) so .7g for 7g cannabis or .78g for (@25% potency) of same weight. Boiling out the water and ethanol you add the dried again cannabis to a pre heated oil of that above the boiling point of THC @314 F+ for no more than 15 minutes. The highly heated lipids in the oil then bond freely and more completely with the THC and other cannabinoids making the yield high grade oil. Strain Cool and compare

    Love this recipe and love your site! And believe me, I know from cannabis recipes, infusions and teas. I posted for many years under the pseudonym of MamaBudz on the old Marijuana.com from 1999 through 2005 and was the guru of the cooking forum way back in the day 🙂

    Most of my recipes and such are hugely outdated with all we know now but I was able to help a lot of friends and folks who were suffering from AIDs wasting, cancer patients, and stress induced anorexia. That´s where I started. I think my very first recipe was a tea made up of sticks and stems… it was not great, but it helped.

    Over the years I learned more and passed on what I knew about cannabis, what it could do (enormous good especially in the realms of antipain, antidepressant, stroke recovery and Crohns disorder) , what it could not do (kill by overdose, unless you were run over by a mack truck load of the stuff.) And I did what I could to help educate people and encourage activism with the *I Toke & I Vote* campaign.

    We´ve come far and I am thrilled to see sites like yours picking up the ball and scoring Goal after Goal.

    Now living here in Ecuador, where cannabis while not yet legalized has been decriminalized for personal possession and private use, I see on the horizon the day when it will be decriminalized for medical and recreational use. We are all hopeful fo the next election cycle in February of the coming year. That being said I am re-introducing the MamaBudz name and starting my business plan for the future.

    Now with access to some amazing extra virgin cold pressed coconut oil available here on the coast of this amazing country I googled my way to your page and your recipe above. Learned a few new things about temps for decarboxylization and a whole lot more about lecitina de girasol (sunflower lecithin) . Let me just say, you rock!

    So…Kudos to you and this site… Do a search on “MamaBudz + marijuana” and …

    …have a cookie 😉

    All the best…

    Please invest in a nut bag, instead of using cheesecloth, you won’t have any issues with cannabis squeezing out no matter how grounded up it may be. Nut bags are used to to make milk from coconuts or almounds and so on please you can wash and reuse them.

    Can you really get high off of just a tsp of the finished product? That seems like hardly any weed considering you only started with 7 grams. Im just confused because other coconut oil recipes recommend at least and oz.

    I am pretty sure I burned my CannaOil. I used 1 cup of oil and 7gm of bud. I put it in a crockpot Junior overnight. This morning it is brown and smells burnt. I was originally making it for my dog who has hip displasia. Will it still have the CBD affects that I want for her??

    Thanks

    I grew my own plants which check out at about 15% to 19% THCA. Color charts leave something to be desired though. I did not decarboxylate mine first, and am infusing 2 cups or coconut oil with 4.5 ounces of material. After about 6 hours at 150 degrees I will extract the oil.
    My question is this; Shouldn’t I be able to then decarb that oil infusement at what I have learned is 240 degrees. I’ve always read that to do that first, but won’t I get the same affect after the fact? The infusement should have gotten as much of the oil soluble material from the plant. Would that be correct? I am going to be making Caramels which go to soft ball which is about 245 to 250 degrees. Some have stated that if you are going to cook with your oil, you don’t really need to decarboxylate first, because the temperature while cooking will do the work for you.
    Got any suggestions?

    Also 8-12 hours seems like a wide range. What about just 8…..???

    Thank you!

    Thanks for the tutorial! I was wondering, is it possible to halve the recipe and get the same results? Would I follow all the same times for decarbing the buds and cooking it if I were to decrease the amount of buds and oil down to 1/2 cup each? I really want to try this, but 1 cup is a lot…

    i’ve been making this oil w/the trim from our first grow ever! at 70, ive got many years of “relating to cannabis” and this year is the very best. every afternoon i make myself a lovely cuppa canna-oil tea (just grab a spoonful of the hardened oil and dunk it into a cuppa hot water – drink once it has melted) . in a flash, a coconut-flavored green cuppa that sets me up for the evening….no baking cookies, eating too much sugar or wondering about doses….just a lovely lift and a relief from the arthritis that plagues me….

    Thank you for these complete and comprehensive instructions! I’ve made coco-canna-oil once before but after reading these tips I’m excited for an even better final product! This article gave me the numbers and confidence I needed to get another batch going.

    This was my first time decarboxylating (putting flower in the oven is a scary idea at first!) but it seemed to work great. I used about twice the plant material, as it was lower potency trimmings, and also went against your suggestion by adding water to cover the additional trim. I’m interested to see how the water effects flavor and ease of processing/storage.

    My local grocery store had only soy lecithin granules or sunflower derived gel capsules. Ill find out today if they have a neutral flavor that can be added to the oil, or if they should be consumed alongside.

    One issue I have so far is that my crock pot is too hot. It has been very hard to maintain temperature and I’ve already had fluctuations in temp. up to 205F. Whoops! I’ll need to be more vigilant or invest in a temp. controller.

    I’ll let you know how this first batch comes out!

    Peace!

    Thank you for this recipe, really enjoying reading all your posts. I have just made my first batch and am trying to find the correct dose. half a teaspoon was nice but not strong enough so last night I took a whole teaspoon. After an hour I felt nothing at all and couldn’t work out what had gone wrong. After 4 hours still nothing, but I suddenly became very hungry and ate a few slices of bread with some pickle, and almost immediately the stone came on strong and lasted the rest of the night. Any idea what happened here? Is there something I could have eaten beforehand that stopped the oil digesting until later when I ate again? Thanks in advance.

        That’s brilliant, thanks Corinne.

        On the night in question I dissolved the oil into a mug of hot water and lemon juice. I’ve read your explanation of how THC is derived from THCA by losing an acid and wondered if the acid in the lemon juice could have interfered with the bio-availability of the THC? But hey, I totally flunked chemistry at school so am probably talking nonsense!

        Thanks for all you do here, fighting the good fight!

    I love wakeandbaecookbook.com and I am getting ready to try a few of these recipes. I do have some questions though about the crockpot method. After dropping almost 2 bills on the Lift (thanks for the coupon!) I couldn’t spend another buck-forty (again thanks for the coupon!) on the Magical Butter machine just yet. So I’m going for the crockpot method but I have some questions that I haven’t noticed have been asked yet. 1. When decarbing your “stuff,” do you have to use it immediately or soon after OR can I store it to use another day? 2. Doing the crockpot method, when pouring it into the strainer, is there any residue left in the crockpot? and 3. how do I store what’s left over from the cheesecloth? will it go bad? lose potency? mold? Just curious. Thanks again for this incredibly awesome website. Keep up the great work.

    I’m VERY confused about time and temp to make oil. The manual that comes with the MBM says 160 degrees for one hour. The Magical Butter website says 160 for two hours. Yesterday, I read in a forum that someone wrote the company and asked. They were told an hour at 160 degrees and then four hours at 130 degrees. So… What’s the correct answer? Using 28 grams of product, I made two cups of oil at 160 degrees for one hour and have washed it once. I saved the used product, so, technically, I guess I I could melt the oil down again, put the product back in the oil and put everything back in the MBM, but, since there are conflicting reports on time and temp, I’d like to get a definitive ruling. I’m using the Nova to debarb and the MB2e to make the oil.
