Cannabis-infused Oil (or Canna Oil) can be a great addition to your Cannabis Edibles Recipes. While CannaButter can be great in baked goods and CannaHoney can be great in your tea, Canna Oil allows you to expand your menu to savory dishes as well - like lasagna, salads and even chili.
This simple recipe for Cannabis Oil is easy, no-smell and utilizes your crockpot - so you can make it anywhere you have an outlet. Follow the instructions below to get cooking.
How to Make Cannabis Oil (Canna Oil)
First, You Need to Decarb Your Weed
The first thing you'll need in order to get started is decarbed weed, aka decarboxylated or activated cannabis.
Don't skip this first step. It's a must in order for your cannabis edibles to actually get you high. And luckily, it's a super simple process.
Now You're Ready to Make Cannabis Oil
In a slow cooker or crockpot, combine ½ ounce of decarbed weed and 1 ¼ cups of the oil of your choice.
This can be vegetable oil, coconut oil, olive oil or even avocado oil.
Cook on low for 4-6 hours.
When finished, you'll need to strain out the marijuana. While some like to use a cheesecloth and strainer, I've found that I get the biggest batch of Canna Oil (and make the least mess) when I use a coffee press. (This is the one I love.)
Store your strained Canna Oil in an airtight glass container on your counter or in your cupboard.

Frequently Asked Questions about Cannabis Oil (Canna Oil)
Since not everyone has made cannabis edibles recipes with cannabis oil, it tends to come with several questions. Here are answers to a few of the most popular questions that I receive.
Will Cannabis Oil Work on Salad?
Yes! Some may find the taste to be a little strong if you're eating it directly on salad without any other flavors, but others swear by it. Personally, I like to use the cannabis oil with other ingredients to make a FLYING HIGH salad dressing. But - yes - Canna Oil will absolutely work on salad.
Will Cooking with Cannabis Oil Smell?
We get this question all the time. As long as you decarbed your weed properly, you shouldn't notice an overwhelming odor when making Cannabis Oil. In fact, we noticed zero smell when making it in our crockpot. But if you have concerns about the smell of cooking with Cannabis, you can click here to read more.
Which is Better - CannaButter or Canna Oil?
This completely depends on what recipe you're cooking and what you're in the mood for. While you'll probably find that the more common cannabis edibles recipes stick with CannaButter, we find that Canna Oil is just as effective and in fact preferred for some recipes (like for Cannabis Chicken Chili).
Can Canna Oil spoil or mold?
Eventually. Canna Oil can go rancid, so it's important to keep it in a sealed container and use within 6 - 8 months (although we've stretched it to a year before without issue.)
Can Cannabis Oil kill a dog?
Technically, yes. BUT it would take a LOT of weed to kill Fido. Like - a LOT of it. If you're not using commercial-sized equipment to make your Canna Oil, then you're probably safe - although we don't recommend feeding it to your dog.
Can I put Canna Oil in the Microwave?
We don't recommend making Canna Oil in the microwave (we prefer our low and slow method), but you can put it in the microwave when you're using it in your cannabis edibles recipes.
