Cannabis and food. That’s probably one of the all-time duos, right there. These two go hand-in-hand more than a fist bump. And, when you think about it, it’s basically just a one-two punch of comfort and happiness. Which is why anytime you get the chance to combine the two into a potent edible concoction of sorts – you have to take full advantage of it.
However, I’m aware of how cumbersome and difficult cooking might seem to some (if not most), but I assure you that it’s never as hard as it seems. Especially when it comes to cooking with cannabis. There’s something unspeakably enjoyable about a THC-infused meal that’s guaranteed to brighten your mood and delight your taste buds.
Take Your Meals To New Heights With This Easy Cannabis Cooking Oil Recipe
When you think about food, in general, there’s millions of different meals out there. One of the core ingredients that can be found in almost every single dish is cooking oil. This element of cuisine plays a vital role in almost all recipes. It’s equal parts functional and delicious. Most people, including myself, prefer it to its more fattening counterpart, butter. But, to each their own, I suppose.
However you feel about cooking oil, chances are you’ve enjoyed the heck out of it without even knowing it. It is probably what makes your favorite meal taste so great.
What if I told you I knew how to make some quality canna oil? What’s canna oil, you ask? It’s just a shortened term for cannabis oil – nothing fancy. This cannabis oil recipe is not only guaranteed to create a truly potent bottle of canna oil to add to your pantry, but it’s going to be one of the easiest step-by-step recipes you have ever even attempted.
So, who’s ready? Because I’m about to breakdown how to make cannabis cooking oil.
Per the usual routine, whenever I’m about to launch into a recipe, I have to make sure you have all the required ingredients to make this culinary dream a tasty, super potent reality. Typically, when that happens, you would need to jot down a somewhat lengthy list of various items to grab, in order to complete your desired THC-infused meal. But, in this case, the ingredient list couldn’t be any shorter.

Instructions

Okay, are we ready to do this? Let’s go!

  • First thing’s first, you are going to want to grind up a cup’s worth of cannabis flower for this recipe. But don’t grind it down too fine. Anything that’s small enough to wiggle its way through that cheesecloth is going to wind up in your food – so be mindful of how large (and small) you make those buds.
  • Next thing you’re going to want to do is take that saucepan, and toss in a cup’s worth of standard cooking oil (of your choice). Make sure the heat on the burner is around 240°. Anything higher than that, and your whole batch of THC oil will be ruined. At this point, you can feel free to toss that previously ground up cannabis flower in with your oil.
  • Thus begins the decarboxylation process.
  • This activates the THCa in cannabis and converts it to THC – the psychoactive component in cannabis – through subtle heat. You’ll want to keep that baby simmering on a low setting for three hours, at the very least. Be sure to stir it every now and then to help distribute that wonderful, high-inducing THC into every little crevice of that cooking oil.
  • Once you’ve reached that time limit, it’s time to strain and store this baby.
  • Wrap that cheesecloth around the mouth of a jar that you’ll use for storage. Then, slowly pour the contents into the container, straining the innards of the oil through the cheesecloth.
  • But, my fellow enthusiasts, do not squeeze the cheesecloth during this part of the procedure. Many would think that would expedite (and possibly improve) the straining process, but they couldn’t be further from the truth. That technique would only help floral components find their way into your cooking oil – which you want “floral free” by the way. So, just allow gravity to do the work in this regard, and elegantly strain the oil into the container.
  • When that is done, take that cheesecloth full of flower remnants and toss it in the trash – it has done its job. Now, as far as the oil, itself, you could technically start using it right away. But, in my personal experience, I find that storing it in a cool, dark place for a day or so, really helps the THC find a nice home within the cooking oil. What’s really cool about this canna cooking oil is its super impressive shelf life. If you want, you could ration out your culinary creation and use it for up to two whole months! To be fair, it has the potential to last even longer, if you choose to refrigerate it. It’s totally your call at this point.
  • But that’s it, party people. How easy was that?
  • It only took a few hours because you had to allow the decarboxylation process to occur. That’s time well spent, in my opinion. Without it, your cooking oil wouldn’t be nearly as strong as it is. Plus, after all that effort, it’s going to make your future food creations taste even better – and it’ll likely get you nice and high, too.
  • Feel free to implement this newly-infused cannabis cooking oil into a litany of different recipes. You could use it as a THC-enriched way to add some life to some otherwise mundane pasta dishes. It could even be used as a custom way to liven up your charcuterie board. Personally, I find that a few drizzles over some pizza tends to work out best. There’s truly no wrong way to enjoy this cannabis cooking oil, though – it’s perfect.
  • Look – you did it all on your own. Let this serve as the first step toward a long career as a successful cannabis chef. Even if you never land a restaurant job, you will now be able to treat yourself and others to top-shelf pieces of cannabis cuisine.
  • Because at the end of the day, nothing pairs better than marijuana and food. It really is a match made in heaven.

Notes

And that is it. As you can see, the type of cooking oil in this recipe is entirely up to you. Personally, I can’t get enough of my cannabis olive oil. It’s just a superstar ingredient and frequently used accoutrement for the majority of meals, and I find that I use it far more than any other.
However, that said, I find that cannabis coconut oil is just as fine an option. It’s a bit more on the bland side, but it still delivers quite a potent punch. Either way, whichever oil you choose, once you have expertly procured all those fundamental items, you can get to cooking.
Well, not until you get your kitchen in order, that is.
