Infused Oil Recipes

While we can’t argue about the importance of a healthy diet, we don’t have an opinion about which kind of oil you should use. But we know you can infuse them! Both infused coconut and olive oil can be made in three easy steps! 

Before we get into the recipes, there are a couple things to consider:

  1. Dosage: If you are a new user, it’s best to start with a small amount of cannabis. Oil tends to retain more THC than butter. And coconut oil more so than olive oil due to the saturated fat. 
  2. 2. Smell: It’s worth noting that cooking with cannabis produces an odor. If you live in a place where cannabis use is prohibited or illegal, you may want to reconsider.
  3. 3.Color: Some oil is darker green while others are light. It all depends how much cannabis you use and how finely you grind it.
