  • Tea Towel
  • Crockpot
  • Mason Jars
  • Oven
  • Baking Sheet
  • Paper towel
  • Cheesecloth


  • 16 ounces virgin unrefined coconut oil organic
  • 1 ounce cannabis bud



  • First, prepare the crockpot. Lay a clean tea towel down at the bottom of the crockpot to create a small buffer. This will help secure the mason jars during the cooking process and help prevent the glass from cracking.
  • Fill the crockpot with enough water to fully submerge the mason jars. Aim to have an inch of water covering the top lids.
  • Turn the crockpot to high heat until it reaches 185 Fahrenheit (85 Celsius), then turn it to low heat.


  • While the crockpot heats up the water, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the ground cannabis bud evenly on the sheet. Bake in the oven at 240 Fahrenheit (115 Celsius) for 60 minutes.


  • Divide the coconut oil evenly into the mason jars. Make sure to leave a 1/2 inch space at the top of each one, you will need room for the decarboxylated cannabis.
  • Divide the decarboxylated cannabis evenly into the coconut oil filled mason jars. Clean the rim of the jars with paper towel to make them less slippery. Place the lid on each jar and tighten the metal ring around each one with your hands.
  • Place the mason jars in the water-filled crockpot carefully. Close the lid of the crockpot and cook for 4 hours.
  • After the time is up, carefully remove the mason jars from the crockpot and allow them to cool. Once they have cooled enough to handle, strain the cannabis coconut oil through a cheesecloth into the jar you're storing the oil in. The cheesecloth helps to separate the plant-matter from the oil.


  • Store the coconut oil in a cool dry location. We recommend storing it in the refrigerator for best results. You may also freeze it for longer storage.


  • If using a refrigerator or freezer, never heat up the oil using a microwave, this may diminish some of the cannabinoids. 
  • If the mason jars are floating, place an object that's heat and water safe over top of the jar to weigh it down. We recommend just using a clean rock. 
  • Sanitize the jars prior to making the recipe. Just allow them to sit in hot water for at least 10 minutes.
