Cannabis Oil Recipe 101:

This oil provides a body high that is incredibly different than the buzz obtained from smoking.

And what’s great is that weed-infused oil is one of the oldest and best infusions. This oil contains 100 percent 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 To Use Cannabis Oil

Whether you use THC or CBD oil, there is limitless cannabis infusion potential!

There are many different types of cannabis infusions to use and create THC edibles and CBD beauty products.

Consider infusing baked goods for an elevated sweet treat.

THC oil can also replace cooking oil in your favourite everyday dishes so wherever the recipe calls for oil of any kind – you can swap it for canna-oil and enjoy your edible.

Another fantastic use of CBD oil is infusing it to create cannabis makeup and CBD topicals.

If you are looking to add unique flavour to food, or enhance your beauty lineup with CBD-infused products, this oil has got you covered.


Make It At Home Successfully

Remember, you can use different strains to create these infusions so depending on what kind of high or result you want, that’s how you’ll pick your strain.

If you enjoy an Indica or Sativa dominant plant, our recipe can help you get the most out of your oils.

So use your favourite 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.

Some yummy recipes that include cannabis oil are Dorito Fried Pickle Spirals, Cannabis Oil Lemon Cake, Goat Cheese, Pecan and Canna-Oil Salad and so many more.

Weed-Infused Oil Do’s and Don’ts

While we provide you with all of the do’s in the recipe to follow there are a few dont’s as well.

The single most important thing NOT to do is to just mix your grind with some oil, and call it an edible. That won’t work.

You have to decarboxylate first. Period. Do not skip this step, ever!

Another important don’t is to consume your infused oil in the recipe of your choice and then have some more after an hour or two when you don’t feel anything ‘kicking in’.

You have to give it a little bit of time to absorb into your body, and work. Wait at least 2-3 hours before consuming more edibles and follow the “Marijuana Mantra”:

Dose LOW and SLOW!

  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
