This Is The Best Coconut Weed Oil Recipe
The year is 2018, and it’s time we start getting serious about our health. For some people, that means monitoring the amount of animal-based products they consume, and sometimes those very same people want to enjoy the benefits of eating cannabis. What’s a vegan and/or vegetarian to do? Many commercial edibles are made with cannabutter, and there is no shortage of recipes to make your own out there (including greenRush’s Cannabis Butter recipe). Enter the wonders of coconut weed oil!
Did You Say Coconut Weed Oil?
Heck yes, we did. A popular substitute with both animal-wary eaters and health nuts alike, coconut oil possesses beyond the requisite amount of fat necessary to carry the decarboxylated THC into your bloodstream. Sure, you can infuse cannabis into a lot of fatty substances. Take olive oil, with its roughly 20 percent saturated fat, or butter, which clocks in around 50 percent saturated fat. That’s nothing when you compare them to coconut oil’s whopping 89 percent fat content. This alone makes coconut oil a prime candidate for inundation with cannabis. The recipe is exceedingly easy to execute, and it’s tasty to boot! What a great bonus.
But Do I Have to Cook with It Though?

Listen, we’re not the weed police—you can do whatever you want with your coconut weed oil as far as we’re concerned. In fact, now that you bring it up, there are some things you can do with this special blend of marijuana oil that you probably (almost, surely) would not want to do with cannabutter.
Coconut weed oil will stay solid at room temperature so you can use it topically. Sore joints? Achy back? Rub some of this coconut cannabis oil on it to reap the benefits of CBD and THC at the same time. Feel like a medicated smoothie in the morning? Drop a dollop in with your leafy greens and mangoes (you wouldn’t do that with butter, would you?). Moisturize your lips with some infused oil, and you’ll want to give yourself a kiss. That could be true with butter, too, though…
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- ½ ounce of cannabis
- 1 cup coconut oil
- Baking sheet
- Parchment paper
- Airtight storage container
How To Make Coconut Weed Oil
Grind your cannabis: Don’t grind it too fine, however, because you’ll end up with weed in your finished product.
Bake your weed: Spread your ground weed evenly across a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees Fahrenheit for 75 minutes. Low and slow is the name of the game when you’re cooking with cannabis!
Infuse your oil: Put one cup of coconut oil into a small saucepan over the lowest heat setting possible. Once it liquefies, throw in your baked cannabis and give the mixture a stir. Leave on the lowest of low heat for one hour.
Strain your infusion: Place cheesecloth over the opening of your airtight container and slowly pour in your brand new coconut weed oil. Squeeze out any oil that may be hiding in the weed.
Cool your weed oil: Let your concoction come to room temperature (otherwise condensation will form inside the container). Put a lid on it and place in the fridge overnight.
Enjoy: You are ready to start cooking with cannabis oil!
