Learn How to Make Cannabis-Infused Olive Oil

Cannabis-infused olive oil is light and delicious and can be used as a base for many cannabis-infused recipes. This easy, step-by-step guide will teach you how to make cannabis-infused olive oil at home. 

Cannabis-Infused Olive Oil using CBD isolate

You can change the dosage by changing the amount of isolate you add to the oil.

1 gram of isolate = 1000mg CBD

0.5 gram of isolate = 500mg CBD

0.2 gram of isolate = 200mg CBD

Let’s say you want to make 1 cup of olive oil with 500mg total CBD in it. Here are the steps using isolate:

  1. Add 1 cup of olive oil to a small saucepan
  2. Set saucepan to medium/low heat
  3. Add 0.5 gram CBD isolate to heating oil in a saucepan
  4. Stir continuously until all the isolate is well incorporated into the oil (the oil shouldn’t appear cloudy)
  5. Pour into a jar and store in the fridge. Can be stored for extended periods (up to 1 year)

Full-Spectrum Cannabis-Infused Olive Oil using Flower

If you want to make full-spectrum oil, you can use flower to infuse olive oil. The process is a little bit longer and will produce a smell when making it. The dosage is harder to estimate, but the oil will have terpenes, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids, giving a full- spectrum entourage effect. Here is the process for 500mg (roughly) in 1 cup of Olive Oil or Coconut Oil:

  1. Get some hemp flower (roughly 12-15% CBD) and weigh out 3.5 grams
  2. Break up by hand into small pieces, but do not grind too fine
  3. Preheat the oven to 240F
  4. Put broken up hemp flower spread out on a baking sheet or silicone mat in the oven for 60 minutes to decarboxylate (turn CBDa into CBD)
  5. Add 1 cup of olive oil or coconut oil to a small saucepan on medium/low heat
  6. Take the decarbed hemp flower from the oven and add it to the saucepan with oil
  7. Simmer on medium/low stirring frequently for 2-3 hours
  8. Use cheesecloth or strainer to remove flower particles out of oil
  9. Pour oil into a jar and store in the fridge.
