Cannabis Oil – A Step By Step Guide To Make Weed Oil At Home

Cannabis infused THC oil for weed edibles

Cannabis Oil Recipe 101:

Cannabis oil is one of the staple ingredients in cannabis edibles. It provides a body high that is incredibly different than the buzz obtained from smoking. Of course, proper dosing is very important when creating edibles. You may risk an uncomfortable experience if your infusions are not created correctly. However, we help you create cannabis infusions with the appropriate dosage. Ideally, this will elicit the best high you have ever experienced.

Furthermore, weed infused oil is one of the oldest and best infusions. This oil contains 100 per cent fat and bonds to the THC in cannabis. Fortunately, you can disguise the taste of bud in your edibles. To lessen or eliminate the taste of cannabis, soak your bud in hot water for 8 hours before starting this recipe. Don’t worry, THC is not water soluble and this process won’t take away any of its potency.

How can I use my cannabis oil?

Whether you use THC or CBD oil, there is limitless cannabis infusion potential! There are many different types of cannabis infusions. Weed infusions are seen in THC edibles and CBD beauty products. Consider infusing baked goods for an elevated sweet treat. Excitingly, THC oil can also replace cooking oil in your favorite every day dishes. Interestingly, CBD oil is being infused to create cannabis makeup and CBD topicals. If you are looking to add unique flavour to food, or amour your beauty lineup with CBD infused products, this oil has got you covered.

How to make cannabis oil at home!

Remember, you can use different strains to create these infusions. If you enjoy an indica or sativa dominant plant, we help you get the most out of your oils. Use your favorite cannabis strain and follow the recipe below. The cannabis strain you choose will completely dictate your final product. For example; if you use a strain that is high in CBD, you will make a CBD oil. If you choose a strain that is THC dominant, you end up with THC oil.

Important: If using a mason jar, make sure to start with cold water, and also let the water cool back gradually so it will not shatter.

  1. Does this recipe work For all oils? (Vegetable, coconut, etc..)

  2. can you use distillate to make the oil instead of decarbing flower?

  3. Laura Harrison says:

    Is sunflower lecithin absolutely necessary? I don’t have any and don’t know what it is. What role does it play in this recipe?

    1. Sunflower lecithin is simply a binder to help your herb bind to the oils in the recipe. You can purchase it on amazon or any number of other retailers.

    2. Someone Somewhere says:

      sunflower lecithin is an emulsifier so it means that substances that would typically separate out (i.e. vinegar and oil) stay mixed together.
      I don’t think it’s absolutely necessary in this recipe unless you expect the oil to sit on the shelf for an extended period of time. Even then I think it’s nothing to worry about because THC and oil are “happy” together.
      To be absolutely sure that the THC doesn’t collect under the lid of the mason jar or at the bottom, just shake the oil prior to use
