Why Coconut Oil is a great carrier for infusion:

You can make cannabis-infused coconut oil that is dairy-free, plant-based, plus coconut oil is an excellent carrier for many cannabis infused foods and self-care products.

Most coconut oil is refined. Virgin or unrefined coconut oil is about as close to being as natural as you can get. Unrefined coconut oil has a pure coconut flavor.

Certain recipes don’t taste well with a heavy coconut flavor. One advantage to using refined coconut oil is that it has a neutral taste and flavor.

Refined coconut oil is about 63 percent MCTs and 50 percent lauric acid, making refined coconut oil a great carrier for infusions.

Fact: Coconut oil is the perfect substitute for butter and other oils.

Fact: Coconut oil is an excellent carrier for many cannabis infused foods and self-care products.

Chef’s notes: Always use organic steamed refined coconut oil.

3. Set a funnel on top of a Mason jar and line it with cheesecloth. Once the coconut oil has cooled off, pour it over the cheesecloth funnel and allow it to strain freely. After the coconut oil is strained pour the coconut oil into a glass bowl with lid for storage.

Storage Tips: Coconut Oil can be stored in a cool dark area for 1-2 months.

Chef’s Notes: To maintain the highest levels of CBD potency, you should keep the double boiler temp as close as possible to 160 to 175ºF. Water will start to boil at 212ºF if your water is boiling the temperature is too high and can burn the coconut oil and destroy the infusion.

Fact: It’s important to regulate temperature controls when infusing coconut oil. Heat is needed to infuse, but too high of a temperature can burn the coconut oil and destroy the infusion.

Pro Tips:  Optional -Instant Read Digital Thermometer (Used to verify double boiler temp)
