Coconut oil by far is one of the best products on the market today. It is has become one of the most popular superfoods and is recommended to be used as an oil when consuming raw or cooked food. Coconut oil is a saturated oil made mainly of medium-chain fatty acids. It gets its extra punch from lauric acid (C12) which comprises about 50% of the total fatty acids.
Coconut oil has been linked to many different medical benefits including accelerating healing time for wounds, delivering antioxidant properties, and preventing bone loss. This wonder oil is so commonly used that people are adding it nowadays to virtually everything – and one of those things is coconut oil with cannabis.
Cannabis Coconut Oil Benefits
As coconut oil is rich in fatty acids, it has the capability of creating a strong binding agent for cannabinoids. This is compared to other oils, such as olive oil, which contains less than 20% of saturated fat content. Cannabis and coconut oil are literally like a match made in heaven and thanks to recent research it is now understood that the cannabis coconut oil benefits are incomparable to any other cannabis-based oil.
How to Make Cannabis Oil with Coconut Oil?
Making cannabis oil with coconut oil is really easy. All you really need is a hot stovetop some cannabis and obviously, coconut oil.
Ingredients for the Coconut Oil Cannabis Recipe
- Double boiler
- 1/4-1/2 ounce of high-quality cannabis
- 1 Cup of coconut oil (organic is best)
- 2-3 feet of cooking twine
- Cheesecloth (about an 8” x 10” piece)
Lay the cheesecloth out and place your buds on top. Buds should be distributed evenly. Fold in opposite ends to cover your buds. Now fold in one of the open ends, tuck, and roll. Tie the roll of bud with cooking twine.
Fill the bottom pan of a double boiler with a few inches of water. Place the second and on top and heat to a gentle boil.
Add coconut oil and begin melting. Add about 1 cup of water, just enough so it will cover your bud packet when you place it in.
Once all your coconut oil has melted add your packet of buds
Cook for about 1.5 hours. Once the mixture has turned green, remove the packet and set aside to cool
The mixture should form two layers; the water at the bottom and the good stuff at the top. Simply poke a few holes through the oil and let the water drain out.
Store in a glass container and you are done. Presto you now have your coconut-infused cannabis oil
