Using butter in your recipes makes your weed brownies taste delicious and creamy when baked. But not everyone like butter’s fat, calories, or even it’s rich taste. Also, if you are vegan then butter is a no-no. So, it is great to know that you can use oil instead. This is a healthy vegan alternative meaning that you will never miss out on the weed brownie experience.
Cannabis oil is made by gently heating cannabis within another oil. This simple process infuses your weed in the oil. When making weed brownies it is best to use oils that have a mild flavour such as coconut oil. Read on to find out about cannabis oil and discover an easy way to make cannabis infused cooking oil in your own home.
What is Cannabis-Infused Oil?
The most active components in cannabis are hydrophobic. Hydrophobic means that THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids are repelled by water molecules. However, both CBD and THC are soluble in fats. They love binding with the fatty acid molecules which are found in oil. When the oil is slowly heated, THC and CBD molecules move from the plant material and fuse with the oil.
Most oils are suitable for making cannabis oil. The two most common oils are coconut oil and olive oil. Both oils taste nice, and they will also nourish your skin. This makes them suitable for use in your weed brownies and as a skin or massage oil.
Coconut oil is higher in saturated fat than olive oil. This means it binds the fat-loving cannabinoids together much faster and more vigorously. Also, coconut and olive oils both have strong natural antimicrobial and antifungal properties. This helps to stop fungi and bacteria from spoiling your weed oil. These two properties also extend the shelf life of your cannabis oil.
- 1 cup of cannabis flowers, medium-fine grind
- 1 cup of oil
- An oven
- A saucepan and lid
- A baking tray and greaseproof parchment paper
- Cheesecloth, sieve, or colander
- A storage container
- Preheat your oven to 110°C (230°F).
- Grind and spread your weed evenly along the inside of a lined baking tray.
- Bake for about 30 minutes for decarbing (decaboxylation) your weed. This helps to speed up the infusion process later. Remember to stir the weed around with a spoon every 15 minutes whilst baking.
- Put on a low heat a small saucepan. Let the pan heat up for around a minute. Then add in your oil and cannabis.
- Let your mixture cook at a low temperature for about three hours. Stir frequently. You can use a thermometer to ensure that the temperature does not exceed 118°C (245°F).
- Finally, let your mixture cool down. Then strain through a cheesecloth or sieve over a container. You can squeeze the weed in your cheesecloth to extract the last drops of oil.
It is difficult to determine the potency of homemade brownies and other edible weed products. It is just not affordable or practical to do so without laboratory testing. Throughout the process, there are many opportunities for the THC or CBD to increase or decrease in concentration.
You should always begin testing with a small amount of cannabis food or oil. This approach is known as micro dosing. Micro dosing is when you take a small amount of a substance to test it or to experience some cognitive effects whilst fully functioning in normal reality. To micro dose you begin with a quarter to a half of a teaspoon of pure oil. You can take more the next time if you want to. Listen to your body and it will tell you how much you can take. Remember it can take up to three hours for the full effects to really kick-in.
By holding the oil underneath your tongue (sublingual dosing) you invite a faster onset with a shorter duration and lower intensity than if you ate the oil in a brownie. Experiment with finding the ideal personal dose for your weed oil and your perfect portion size for brownies and other edibles.
