How to Infuse Your Own CBD Oil
When you infuse coconut oil with our CBD flower, you can choose your strain (or strains) and ingest as much or as little as you want. Eat up to 2 tbsp. per day, adjusting the amount as needed. The ingredients are inexpensive, and you don’t need any pricey equipment – in fact, you probably have everything you need in your kitchen!
7g CBD flower
1 c coconut oil
1 tbsp lecithin granules*
Crumble the flower into a 16 oz Mason jar with a lid. Add the coconut oil and lecithin granules. Seal the jar and place it upright in a Crock Pot. Fill the crock with enough water to come halfway up the jars, and set the heat on low. Allow to cook overnight, or for at least eight hours. Remove the jars from the Crock Pot using tongs or an oven mitt, and allow them to cool.
Place a piece of cheesecloth loosely over the top of an 8 oz jar. Pour the warm oil through the cheesecloth to strain out the plant material. Seal the jar and store it in a cool, dark place (it’s okay to keep it in the refrigerator, but not necessary).
Spread 1 tbsp oil on a piece of toast, drizzle it over popcorn or salads, or make a sweet treat using the following recipes.
1 cup coffee
1 tbsp CBD oil
Creamer to taste
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
CBD chocolate chip cookies
2 ¼ cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
¾ cup chocolate chips
¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup infused coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup plant-based milk
In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Make a well in the center, and pour in the oil, milk, and vanilla. Stir gently to mix, then stir in the chocolate chips. Scoop out 1 tbsp dough for each cookie, roll it into a ball, and place it on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Cookies will not turn dark; they’ll still look a little gooey when you take them out. Let them cool before enjoying with CBD coffee or milk.
The exact dosage of each cookie (or cup of coffee) depends on the strain.
*Lecithin granules help oil mix with liquid, and may increase the bioavailability of the cannabinoids. They’re flavorless and are usually derived from soybeans or sunflowers; either is fine. Look for them in health-food stores.
