Here's a simple stove-top method to make cannabis-infused olive oil. This method requires more babysitting and will definitely stink up your home but it's a great way to infuse your cannabis if you don't have a sous vide machine. If you do have a machine, go the more hands-off, discreet route and sous vide your weed!
• 16 oz olive oil
• 1/4 - 1/2 oz of ground cannabis flower, I used Sage OG from Humboldt Legends
*Decarb your ground cannabis flower for maximum THC infusion
1. Pour olive oil into a small saucepan and simmer on medium-low heat, never let it boil.
2. Add in your ground cannabis, cover with a lid, and simmer for an hour, stirring often.
3. Pour the mixture into a glass container using a cheesecloth or mesh strainer to strain the cannabis from the oil. Discard leftover cannabis.
*Note: The amount of cannabis olive oil specified in this recipe is a very loose suggestion; the actual amount you use should be modified based on the strength of your olive oil and the potency you desire. Dosing homemade edibles can be tricky, so the best way to test for potency is to start with one portion of a serving, in this case, one teaspoon, and wait one to two hours, then make an informed decision on whether to consume more. Always dose carefully and listen to your body, and never drive under the influence of cannabis.
