How to make your own cannabis oil

Cannabis oil is one of the top choices for professional chefs who are starting to incorporate cannabis into their cooking, as well as hobby cooks who are seeking the health benefits of the plant. There are tons of ways to incorporate cannabis oil into your cooking: you can use it to roast your own granola, trail mix, or even infuse it into your baking for an easy form of consumption. 


You can purchase cannabis oil and add it into most recipes if you’re short on time, or create your own oil tailored to your personal taste once decarbing the flower.


The cannabis oil recipe below has a stovetop and slow cooker option. Creating your own oil will take 3 - 4 hours on a stovetop, or 4 - 6 hours in a slow cooker, so ensure you have enough time. Although it takes some effort to create your own cannabis oil,  you’ll be pleased to have a versatile base for all of your favourite recipes! 


Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook tIme: 3 - 6 hours
Total time: 3 - 6.5 hours

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of ground cannabis flower. Make sure you decarb it first for the stovetop option. You can add less than a cup of flower if you’d like a lower potency.
  • 1 cup of the oil of your choice, such as canola, coconut, olive, or avocado oil.

Equipment:

  • Medium-sized pot or saucepan
  • Measuring cup
  • Spatula
  • Thermometer
  • Bowl
  • Strainer
  • Cheesecloth or nut milk bag

Instructions for cooking the oil on a stovetop:

  1. Decarb your cannabis by following these steps.
  2. Heat the oil in a pot or saucepan on low heat for 3 - 5 minutes.
  3. Add in your decarbed cannabis and mix well with a spatula.
  4. Continue to cook over low heat for 3 hours. Stir occasionally. The oil should never boil or simmer, but some bubbling is okay. Use your thermometer to ensure that the temperature never gets warmer than 250° F, or boils over and onto the stovetop element.
  5. Line a strainer with cheesecloth and place it over a large, heat-safe bowl. Carefully pour the oil through the cheesecloth, allowing any excess oil to strain through.
  6. Once the mixture has completely strained, use a funnel to carefully transfer your oil into a container.  Remove the cheesecloth from the strainer, using gloves if the oil is still warm (it should not be hot), and squeeze any remaining oil into the bowl.
  7. Once completely cooled, either put a lid on the oil’s container and store it in the fridge, or add to a recipe.

Instructions for cooking the oil in a slow cooker:

  1. Combine the oil and cannabis into your slow cooker and leave on low heat for 4 - 6 hours to allow the decarboxylation to occur. Stir occasionally. Use your thermometer to ensure that the temperature never gets warmer than 250° F.
  2. Line a strainer with cheesecloth and place it over a large, heat-safe bowl. Carefully pour the oil through the cheesecloth, allowing any excess oil to strain through.
  3. Once cooled, carefully strain the mixture through the cheesecloth and strainer into a bowl.
  4. Once the mixture has completely strained, use a funnel to carefully transfer your oil into a container.  Remove the cheesecloth from the strainer, using gloves if the oil is still warm (it should not be hot), and squeeze any remaining oil into the bowl.
  5. Once completely cooled, either put a lid on the oil’s container and store in the fridge, or add your finished oil to a recipe.

 

If you create your own oil, remember to keep a close eye on the ingredients, as the process requires the right temperature and a few hours of your time, so you don’t want to waste your product. Enjoy your creations and remember to start low and go slow to enjoy responsibly!


While homemade cannabis edibles work well for some patients, they may not be for everyone, depending on an individual's endocannabinoid system. To determine your specific needs for intaking cannabis oils, feel free to reach out to your Namaste MD nurse practitioner, and learn more about your different options.
