Cannabis Coconut Oil- Easy Recipe Combats Pain, Nausea, Seizures and More

Virgin coconut oil is incredible as a product on its own! It really is an amazing product for health care and beauty regimes. 

It can be used to deep condition hair, moisturize your skin, bake delicious cookies and cakes, wipe make up off, apply as a lip-balm, etc.

Coconut oil has a great deal of health benefits. Its application and uses can be implemented both internally and externally. 

It can be applied externally to heal skin and hair from deformities and damage, or ingested to help improve digestion, memory, fight cancer, ease digestion, boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, cure UTIs, eliminated kidney infection, protect the liver and more.

From something good comes something great...

Coconut oil can be made even more useful by infusing it with the medicinal properties of marijuana. When the two are combined properly, they create a symphony more beautiful than chocolate and peanut butter!

Coconut oil is known to be full of natural saturated fats. Don’t worry, these are the ones that increase the HDL (good cholesterol) in your body and it can help convert the LDL (bad cholesterol) into HDL, a key ingredient to a healthy heart.

The THC and cannabidiol (CBD) in marijuana, the two cannabinoids that give marijuana it’s healing and psychoactive properties, are very fat soluble. 

The high concentration of fatty acids in coconut oil creates an ideal adhesive for the cannabinoids, that bond with the fatty molecules.

How Cannabis Coconut Oil Can Help You

The results of the cannabis coconut oil are much more potent than other butters/margarines/oils, highlighting the medicinal properties of the flower. Cannabis can be used to cure all types of illnesses, depending on the strain, but you have to know how to choose the right one.

Strains heavy in THC are best for treating pain, PTSD, nausea, lack of appetite/eating disorders, asthma, glaucoma and sleep disorders.

Other strains that are higher in CBD can be used to combat anxiety, pain, tumors, cancer, seizures, psychosis and neurodegenerative disorders.

The Strain Makes All the Difference

The sativa family of cannabis have a high CBD:THC ratio, so they have an energizing affect that stimulates the mind and promotes optimism. Due to the high CBD content, they are often used to treat depression, ADHD, and appetite loss. 

Conversely, those in the indica family have a high THC:CBD ratio. The high THC content gives indica strains a sleepy, slow and sedative effect that helps with anxiety and sleep disorders. There are many different hybrid plants that fall on a spectrum of traits from both plant families.

Decarb the Marijuana Before Making your Oil

Decarboxylation is a very easy process. When you use marijuana for cooking or recipes like the one below, make sure you follow these easy steps to decarb your bud:
  • Preheat the oven to 240° F. / 115° C.
  • Break up cannabis flowers and buds into smaller pieces with your hands. We use one ounce, but you can elect to do more or less.
  • Put the pieces in one layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Make sure the pan is the correct size so there is not empty space on the pan.
  • Bake the cannabis for 30 to 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes so that it toasts evenly.When the cannabis is darker in color, a light to medium brown, and has dried out, remove the baking sheet and allow the cannabis to cool. It should be quite crumbly when handled.
  • In a food processor, pulse the cannabis until it is coarsely ground (you don’t want a superfine powder). Store it in an airtight container and use as needed to make extractions

How to Make Cannabis Coconut Oil

To prepare Cannabis Coconut Oil, place one gram of de-carboxylate marijuana for every ounce of virgin coconut oil. 

Place the crushed marijuana in a glass jar and add the coconut oil. Put the lid on the jar, seal it well and put it in a pan full of water. 

Slowly heat the water and keep it on a below boiling level for 60 minutes.
This will keep the oil safe from overheating and ruining those lovely active chemicals that we want so bad.

Now you need to use a strainer to seive the mixture and eliminate the solid elements. Make sure to squeeze all the juices from the cannabis. Some people use cheesecloth to strain the mixture properly.

When you are finished you can eat the cannabis coconut oil like that or use it in other foods or apply it as a lotion. 

Feel free to cook with this treated oil, only when the temperature is lower than 315 F. 

That is the temperature of the point of boiling of the active compound of marijuana. Obviously, if you use higher temperatures the effects will be gone.
