How To Make Cannabis-Infused Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has been infused into so many cannabis products these days, including edibles and topicals. Learn how to make cannabis-infused coconut oil and why it’s so great for you!

Why is Coconut Oil So Popular For Cannabis Infusion?

One of the main reasons is that coconut oil has high concentrations of fatty acids (saturated fats).

Fatty acids create a strong bind for cannabinoids – like Sonny and Cher – they just go hand in hand and they like to be together.

The interesting and wonderful thing about coconut oil is that it contains over 80% saturated fats.

This makes it a best-buddy for this process because this means it can retain a lot more cannabinoids during infusions, making it far more efficient.

Coconut oil is a perfect pair for cannabis-infused oils!

Best Uses For Health Benefits

Coconut oil rocks when it comes to wellness! And the same goes for CBD Oil!

For example, coconut oil has lauric acid- which can sound a bit scary if you haven’t heard of it before, but it’s actually great for you!

When you digest coconut oil, lauric acid creates a monoglyceride that acts as an antimicrobial.

An antimicrobial is an agent that kills microorganisms or stops their growth.  Think bacteria and fungus – coconut oil can help reduce or even stop them!

Another fantastic benefit of using coconut oil with weed is it will remain solid at room temperature so you can use it on toast, in recipes, and on skin.

Can I Use It On My Skin?

Absolutely! It’s a top choice for using topically as a cream or lip balm in drier climates or months around the globe.

Ever had dry cuticles or cracked heels? Lather a little coconut oil on top and you’ll feel relief instantly!

  • Strainer or cheesecloth
  • Grinder
  • Double boiler OR crockpot


  • 1 cup ground cannabis flower (7-10 grams)
  • 1 cup coconut oil extra virgin


  • Grind up your cannabis.
    Anything small enough to fit through the strainer will end up in your finished product, so don't grind your cannabis too finely.
  • Combine oil and cannabis in your double-boiler, slow cooker, or saucepan and heat the two together on low or warm for a few hours.
  • Use a slow cooker on low for 4-6 hours, stirring occasionally.
    OR, in a double-boiler on low for 8 hours, stirring occasionally;
    Adding small amounts of water can be added to the mixture to help avoid burning. 
    Note: Temperature of the oil should not exceed 245°F.
  • Strain your oil BUT DO NOT SQUEEZE!
    If you squeeze the cheesecloth, it will add more chlorophyll to your oil.
  • Refrigerate up to a few weeks, and use in baking, cooking, and topically as well!
