CBD Coconut Oil
By Rane Organics
Prep time 15 min Cook time 4 hours Total time 4 hours 15 min Servings 8 oz
- 9 oz organic unrefined coconut oil
- 0.5 oz Elektra or Lifter Hemp Flower (substitute cannabis if desired)
First, you must decarboxylate the flower. This will convert CBDA into CBD, or in the case of cannabis, THCA to THC. If you skip this step, no worries, you still get all of the benefits of non-activated cannabinoids, all which play a role in regulating the endocannabinoid system.
- Place a small, clean towel on the bottom of your crockpot (to prevent jars from jittering around)
- Place your coconut oil into a mason jar and put that into the crockpot.
- Fill your crockpot with warm water, enough that it covers the top of the mason jar you will use. Let the water reach 185 degrees for the whole the process.
- Grind or break apart your hemp flower and decarboxolayte it in the oven at 240 degrees for about 40 minutes. Flower should be a golden brown everywhere upon completion.
- Place the decarboxalayted flower into the now liquid coconut oil and put lid on jar. Let the creation infuse for 4 hours. If the jar floats or moves around, weigh it down with something heavy, such as a rock.
- After 4 hours, carefully remove jars from crockpot and let them cool
- Strain oil. French press, cheesecloth, or coffee filters are a few easy ways. Store in a cool, dry pace or in the refrigerator.
- Compost or make a tea out of the remaining strained pulp!
