Many oils work well with baking too! So you might want to choose an oil that will have a flavor and consistency that works for multiple recipes. For example, if you are looking for an oil that can be used in a stir fry as well as a pie crust, coconut oil is a great option. It adds great flavor to veggies and remains solid enough at room temperature to hold up as a pie crust.
Note: Be cautious when using the oil to prepare dishes that require heating. Do not microwave and choose low heat whenever possible.
If you want something a little more robust in flavor, you can infuse olive or avocado oil. Both stand up well to the cannabis flavor and can be stored in your pantry. One of the most surprisingly delicious deserts I ever had was an olive oil ice cream. So feel free to get creative!
Now get cooking! I suggest finding a few of your favorite recipes and see if an infused-cannabis oil could work. Experimenting with different recipes is half the fun, and here are a few of our favorite recipes to get you going:
Using kitchen devices with rubber seals on their lids will allow you to lock in the majority of the odor during the cook. Finding a crock pot or pressure cooker with this feature is easy. The seal allows you to be strategic in where and when you open the lid.
The risks of using cannabis products containing THC (the chemical that gets you high) are not currently clear. That’s why clinical trials are needed before they can be used.
It would only be considered when other treatments were not suitable or had not helped.
Many cannabis-based products are available to buy online, but their quality and content is not known. They may be illegal and potentially dangerous.

If you experience any side effects from medical cannabis, report these to your medical team. You can also report them through the Yellow Card Scheme.
It’s expected this would only apply to a very small number of people in England.
It is licensed in the UK for people with MS-related muscle spasticity that has not got better with other treatments.
Many people having chemotherapy will have periods where they feel sick or vomit.
Before you start with the recipe, you’ll need to figure out the type of cannabis you’re going to be using. You can use THC rich, CBD rich or balanced cannabis for this recipe.
After 10 minutes, you’ll need to strain your cannabis. Pour your flowers into the sieve and let the water drain out without putting any pressure on it. Repeat the entire process, boiling the weed again, until the water comes out clean (3 times should do it).
How to make cannabis oil | RECIPE 1
One of the best ways of ingesting cannabis oil is raw. If it’s used to fry anything, it loses all of its properties in as far as cannabinoids due to high temperatures. We recommend using it as a dressing for salads, making sure to test it out beforehand to test its strength and how much you should use.
For those looking to make cannabis oil that has all of cannabis’s properties, including the psychoactive ones, we highly recommend using a strain with high THC levels or more THC than CBD. This allows you to create a cannabis oil that’s capable of alleviating intense muscular pain, reduce epileptic attacks, increase appetite, treat insomnia etc. It’s also a much safer way to consume cannabis as you don’t need to inhale any nasty smoke.
Once the water is boiling, the cannabinoid-assimilation process has begun. This can be quite a slow process, taking a few hours, although it’s much faster than the first recipe. For the best possible results, we recommend continuing this process for two to three hours, mixing every now and then. In order to get perfect results, try and keep the temperature at a stable 100°C. You can use a kitchen thermometer for this purpose.
