FIRST PART: “Decarbing” the Flowers
(If you’re done or already know how to do this, please skip to the second part of the recipe.)
- Grind up your cannabis buds. If you want, you can use the whole plant (it won’t matter much.) Make sure that it’s grinded well but still big enough for it to not fall through the cheesecloth or strainer.
- Spread your buds evenly on a baking tray. Leave it in the oven for 45 minutes at 240 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Take a cheesecloth and wrap the grinded cannabis buds. At this point, it has to be of zero moisture and very dry.
- Just like that, you now have your flowers ready. Proceed to the second part of the recipe.
SECOND PART: Making the Marijuana Oil
- With your preferred oil, add it to your saucepan along with the dried cannabis buds. Cook it low for three hours while stirring every now and then. We do this to avoid the pan from burning. If you’re using a slower cooker, heat it for four to six hours (as low as possible.) And if you’re using a double boiler, cook on low for 7 hours.
- If you start to notice that the mixture seems to be a bit too dry to the point of it being burnt, you can add a bit of water for moisture. Remember that the temperature of the oil should not exceed 240 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Strain the oil.

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE RECIPE
How long will this cannabis-infused cooking oil last?
This weed cooking oil can last at least two months. Just like anything that has cannabis in it, the shelf life can be extended with proper storage. In this case, it would be better if it were refrigerated. If you wish to know more about how to properly store weed, we have just the right article for you here.
Can I use other kinds of oils as a base?
Sure! As long as what you’re using is edible and safe to consume, there won’t be a problem at all! However, the common option is coconut oil. Aside from how safe it is to consume, coconut oil can also help tone down the earthy, grassy-like taste cannabis naturally possess.

You can use this marijuana recipe for just about anything! You can use it for desserts and actual meals. You can even use this for steaks, pastas, and more. There’s no limit to what you can do!
How many calories does this recipe contain?

Marijuana Cooking Oil Using a Botanical Extractor
If you’re not feeling like going through all the processes above, you might want to consider getting a botanical extractor. This machine can microprocess your buds in an instant. We suggest using this if you’re planning on making a business out of this and need this recipe in bulk.
However, it must be noted that using botanical extractors is still going to require you to dry to decarb your buds. Depending on which model you get, some steps on the manual version might be required to be repeated despite getting this machine.
Is it better to make cannabis oil using this method instead?
There’s no comparison between both methods. It all depends on what you think is more convenient for you. If you want more control over your oil, we suggest doing it manually. But if you’d like to speed things up, you can use a botanical extractor to help you out. Again, this is usually the choice people go for when they need to mass produce the oil for their businesses.
