Many of our patients have asked for a recommended recipe of how to make Medicated Coconut Oil for someone with a HIGH TOLERANCE:
- 16 oz. jar of any REFINED Coconut Oil
- 1/2 oz. of Platinum Harvest Shake
- 1/2 oz. of Private Reserve Shake
If you want to make it EXTRA strong, add:
- 1/2 Gram of any Kief
On the stove top, warm up the liquid coconut oil and add your ground up plant matter. The goal is to keep the oil just below a simmer for about 90 minutes with regular stirring to prevent any burning on the bottom of the pan. Once the oil is infused, it will turn green in color. If you are using a crock pot, then set the temperature to low and allow the mixture to sit for about 3 hours until the oil has turned green.
While the oil is still hot, pour into a clean container through a cheesecloth in order to catch any of the loose plant matter. Once the oil is cooled, add a lid to the container and make sure to label it with the strains used and/or the potency. Coconut oil is stable at room temperature or in the fridge.
You now have available medicated lotion, cooking oil or spread for bread! The possibilities are endless.
THE BENEFITS OF USING COCONUT OIL FOR INFUSION
This recipe uses coconut oil to make cannabis oil capsules. Coconut oil is perfect for cannabis infusion because it has several health benefits of its own. It contains plenty of essential fatty acids, beneficial saturated fats, and a high amount of lauric acid. Essential fatty acids are known to boost the body’s metabolism and the lauric acid can benefit the immune system.
The infused coconut oil makes for an effective and potent way to deliver cannabinoids as both the oil’s fatty acids and THC are directly processed by our liver. The liver converts the THC to 11-hydroxy-THC, which is 4-5 times as potent as compared to smoking.
In other words, when you make cannabis-infused coconut oil capsules, you get to enjoy the benefits of both your favourite medical strain and the healthy properties of coconut oil!
