  • Double boiler or slow cooker
  • Cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer
  • Glass jar or bottle for storage
  • Funnel


  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 7-10 grams decarboxylated cannabis


  • Decarboxylate Cannabis: Preheat your oven to 240°F (115°C). Break up the cannabis into small pieces and spread it evenly on a baking sheet. Bake for 40 minutes, stirring halfway through to ensure even decarboxylation. This process activates the THC and CBD in the cannabis
  • Infuse the Oil: In a double boiler or slow cooker, combine the decarboxylated cannabis and olive oil. Heat the mixture on low for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally. Ensure the temperature stays between 160-200°F (70-93°C) to avoid burning the cannabis
  • Strain the Oil: Once the infusion is complete, let the oil cool slightly. Use a cheesecloth or fine-mesh strainer to strain out the cannabis plant matter. Squeeze the cheesecloth to extract as much oil as possible
  • Store the Oil: Pour the infused oil into a glass jar or bottle. Use a funnel if necessary. Store in a cool, dark place. The oil will keep for up to 2 months


  • The potency of your cannabis-infused olive oil will vary based on the strength and amount of cannabis used. Start with a small dose and adjust as needed.
  • Always label cannabis-infused products clearly and keep them out of reach of children and pets.
  • Cannabis-infused olive oil can be used in a variety of recipes, from salad dressings and marinades to baking and sautéing. However, avoid high-heat cooking, as this can degrade the cannabinoids.
