Cannabis-enriched olive oil

Olive oil is known for its beneficial effects for human health, as well as for its unique flavor. Combined with cannabis, it nourishes cells, facilitating the intrusion of cannabinoids into the body, whether orally or topically.


How to make cannabis-enriched oil


  • 1 large jar
  • 1 large pot of water
  • 15–60 g of cannabis, according to your needs and estimated potency
  • 1 l olive oil
  • sieve
  • cooking thermometer
  • baking tray or fireproof bowl



Start with 15 to 60 g of trim with as high content of THC or CBD as you wish (depending on you how strong you want the oil to be). An ideal amount is roughly 30 g of cannabis per one dose of oil. If you are adding buds to the oil, consider beginning with 10 to 20 grams. The first step is to decarboxylate the plant material.

When making oil from cannabis with high THC content, the decarboxylation should last about 20–30 minutes at a temperature of 110–120°C. On the contrary, if you are using a CBD-rich variety, the process should last for 30–60 minutes at a temperature of about 140 to 150°C.

While cannabis decarboxylates, start heating water in the pot. Put a lid of the jar on the bottom of the pot, so that you could place the jar on it later.

When cannabis in the oven is completely decarboxylated, add it into the jar. Pour the olive oil in the jar so that the plant material is fully submerged.

Place the jar to warm water for 1–2 hours, maintaining medium-low temperature. At this point, the substances bind to each other. It is necessary for the oil to maintain a temperature between 66–93°C for about an hour. Use the cooking thermometer to check whether the oil is at the correct temperature.

When the cannabis and oil merge, strain the oil using a press, pacing or sieve.

Store the finished product in a cold place.
