How To Make Cannabis Coconut Oil (Recipe)

Cannabis-infused coconut oil is one of the most versatile things that a cannabis consumer can make. In addition to using it for baking purposes, it can also be used as a topical rub.

For consumers that cannot or do not want to consume dairy butter, cannabis-infused coconut oil is a great alternative. Many cannabis recipes specifically call for coconut oil versus cannabutter.

Making cannabis-infused coconut oil is very easy – easier than making cannabutter in my opinion. If I can make it, so can you! I have made it both on a stove top and in a crockpot. I find the non-crockpot method to create a stronger end product, but that’s just a subjective opinion.

Be aware that the more potent the flower that you use, the more potent the oil will be. Conversely, the less potent the flower that you use, the less potent the oil will be. Below is the recipe that I use.


6 cups of coconut oil
1 ounce of decarboxylated (decarbed), ground up cannabis flower


1. Put the coconut oil into a pan and slowly heat it over low heat.
2. Slowly mix in the decarbed, ground up cannabis.
3. Without letting the mixture come to a full boil, keep it on the heat source for 3 hours, stirring every 15-30 minutes.
4. Pour the oil through a cheesecloth or fine strainer into a large glass bowl.
5. Let the mixture sit until it’s cooled off (warm to the touch, but not super hot).
6. Transfer the cannabis-infused coconut oil into a glass jar with a tight lid and store it in a cool, dark place.
7. Enjoy!
