What you'll need:
8oz Coconut oil
1/4 Oz Cannabis
French Coffee Press
Pot to boil water
8 oz Bell Jar or similar jar to store your oil in.
How to make it:
First: Rinse and Blanch your Herb
Coarsely grind or break up dry herb and soak overnight in Distilled water.
The next day drain and rinse cannabis in the fine mesh strainer over the sink with more distilled water.
Place rinsed cannabis in Tea Strainer
Bring water to a boil
Place tea strainer with herb in boiling water for 5 mins
Immediately remove tea strainer after 5 minutes and place in ice water for 1 minute.
Remove from ice water, squeeze out excess water and break apart into small pieces onto oven safe ceramic or pyrex baking dish
Preheat oven to 300ºF
Spread blanched cannabis in dish evenly
Cover with foil
Bake for 20 minutes to decarb
Fill pot with water and bring to a slow boil
Add Coconut oil to french press, cover and place in pot of boiling water to liquify
When Cannabis is fully decarbed mix it into the liquified coconut oil
Cover french press with plunger and place standing upright in pot of boiling water for 3 hrs.
Stir the CannaOil every 30 mins.
Check the water level in the pot every 20-30 mins and refill slowly as necessary. You want the water to level to be at the same height as the oil in the french press.
After 3 hours, press plunger down to strain the oil and pour oil into Bell Jar and refrigerate to re-solidify.
If water has accumulated on the bottom of the jar, cut a sliver of the solid coconut oil out from top to bottom. Drain any excess moisture. Replace (or use) sliver.
Remove from fridge when you want to use it and either place jar in hot water to liquify or let CannaOil come back to room temp (takes about an hour) and vòila, you're ready to start using it in your favorite recipes!
