Cannabis infused oil is so versatile and can have many medicinal uses. You can bake with it, cook with it (at a low temperature), take it orally or rub the oil directly onto your skin. A strain that is CBD dominant could help with inflammation when used topically as well as internally. (Here is the Complete Guide to Choose The Perfect Marijuana Strain for Your Lifestyle)

There are two phases to cannabis conversion:

  1. ‘Dry Cure’ use dry clean ‘shake’ or bud. Start by removing the large sticks, grind it up and sift before curing. Then put the ‘shake flour’ into a sealed Crock-Pot on low, for about an 1 hour. Or place in an oven at 150 degrees for 15 minutes.
  2. Converting the ‘shake flour’ into a useful ingredient such as fat (butter or oil), alcohol tincture, or even glycerin.

To make Cannabis Infused Cooking Oil:

  • Pour 3 cups of Grapeseed oil into a Crock-Pot. Grapeseed oil has a higher cooking temperature than most.
  • Add 14 grams of 'cured' cannabis into the Crock-Pot and mix well with the oil.
  • Cook on low for a minimum of an hour, up to five hours.
  • Let cool for a short while before straining the cannabis from the oil and pouring it into a dark coloured (preferred) glass container.
  • Be careful handling the hot oil.
  • Once completely cool, seal and store in the fridge for up to 3 months.

Recommended minimum dose: If baking or cooking with the oil, start with 0.75 grams to 1 gram per serving. If taken orally start with 2 ml a few times a day, increase slowly if needed.

Couple of notes:
