From the Kitchen with Chef Daniel
As we move along in our journey. I am now handing down the easiest and best Oil infusion method to utilize your “decarbed” product at home. Appliances like the Levo 2 on Ongrok Botanical Infuser are phenomenal in their ease of use and “all in one” capabilities. Combining the “decarbing” and infusion in one simple and easy-to-use product that works with a phone app (when using the Levo II) and lets you make a uniform batch of infused food ingredients (or topical products!) every time.
Come down to your local Green Rock and speak with your Community Ambassador in store about pricing and usage. If you want to try it out on your own, feel free to use this following recipe to give you a base oil to work with.
Infused Cannabis Oil
Servings: 16 Tablespoons
Either a Double-Boiler, Slow Cooker, or Saucepan
Grinder or Scissors
Cheesecloth or Strainer
1 Cup Ground Cannabis Flower *Decarboxylated
1 Cup Cooking Oil *Olive and Coconut Oil are easiest to work with
Grind up the cannabis. Preferably grind up the flower/bud as it is the most potent and will get you a more accurate measurement, but you can include the whole plant. Make sure that it is large enough to not fall through the cloth/strainer. Anything fine enough will end up in the final product.
Decarboxylate your cannabis by spreading the cannabis evenly on a baking tray and putting it in the oven for 30 minutes at 240 degrees Fahrenheit.
With the cheesecloth wrap the ground cannabis and tie it together.
Add oil and cannabis into either a slow cooker, double-boiler, or saucepan. For a slow cooker cook on low for 4-6 hours and stirring it occasionally. Using a double-boiler, cook on low for 6-8 hours (8 hours is recommended), and stirring occasionally. Finally using a saucepan, cook on low for 3 hours and stir it frequently, as the saucepan is susceptible to scorching.
Tip* You can add a bit of water to the mixture to help prevent burning.
Note: The temperature of the oil should not exceed 240 F no matter which method is used.
Strain and capture the oil. If using a cheesecloth do not squeeze, this adds more unnecessary chlorophyll to the oil. Leftover plant materials can be discarded.
Finished! The oils shelf life is at least 2 months! And can be extended by keeping it refrigerated.
