How to make Cannabis-Infused Coconut Oil?
- 1 to 2 cups of ground cannabis materials
- 1 to 2 cups of coconut oil
Step 1 – Get your cannabis materials and grind them until they are entirely into bits. Ensure that they will not be in a powdery state.
Step 2 – In a saucepan, set the heat on a medium setting. Combine your finely-grounded cannabis and coconut oil and heat for about 2 to 3 hours. This process will allow for the THC to be activated and enjoy its benefits once it is infused with other edibles. Ensure that the heat doesn’t exceed 245°F, or else the mixture will be scorched. Also, for the next 2 to 3 hours, constantly stir. Never set your stove at the highest setting; the best way to activate THC in your cannabis is by slow-cooking it for a few hours.
Step 3: Get an empty container and place the strainer on top of it. Now, get the mixture and let it run through the strainer and onto the container. Ensure that every oil piece ran through the strainer to avoid any plant material from going through the container.
Step 4: Let it cool down at room temperature, and you can store it in your refrigerator. The shelf life of cannabis-infused coconut oil stored in the refrigerator is around 2 to 3 months.
Step 5: You can now incorporate your cannabis-infused coconut oil into the next step, making the actual edible gummies.
Step 1 – with your stove, set it to the lowest heat possible. Slowly put your pot and add the water, the cannabis-infused coconut oil, and the lecithin/sunflower.
Step 2 – get your whisk and continuously stir the mixture until it already has the texture’s desired consistency. Ensure that the cannabis-infused coconut oil has fully melted and incorporated onto the mixture. Once done, add the flavored gelatin onto the mixture and the unflavored gelatin as well. Again, continuously stir the mixture throughout the process to have an evenly-balanced mixture. Mix for 15 to 20 minutes.
Step 3 – adjust the stove to the lowest heat. Whisk vigorously for 10 to 15 minutes until both gelatins are entirely dissolved. Ensure while whisking that the mixture doesn’t come to a boil while still continually mixing the ingredients.
Step 4 – leave the pot and get your dropper and gummy bear molder. During this step, be sure to be as fast as possible. Don’t let the mixture get too cold or else it will separate. The critical part of this step is having to be as quickly as possible when transferring the mixture to the gummy bear molds. Now, transfer the mixture onto the gummy bear molder with the dropper. Be sure to stir the mixture while moving them onto the holder continually. Once every mixture is placed onto the mold, prepare for the next step.
Step 5 – for around 30 to 35 minutes, put the gummy bear mold onto the freezer.
Step 6 – Enjoy!
