Cannabis Oil Recipe — Crock Pot Method

Oils with the highest fat content, such as olive and coconut, will absorb more cannabinoids (THC/CBD), resulting in higher potency. Canola oil also works well as it is mild in flavor and can be incorporated into many recipes. I choose to make my oil in a Crock-Pot. It's a super easy method that requires very little baby-sitting.


2 cups of oil

1 to 1.5 ounces of dried cannabis (depending on quality/strength)


Slow cooker

Pot or large bowl

Fine mesh strainer


1. Pour oil into the Crock-Pot.

2. Add cannabis and stir to completely cover herb with oil.

3. Heat on lowest setting for 3 hours.

4. Allow mixture to cool (8-9 hours).

5. Repeat heating and cooling process up to two more times for increased potency.

6. Pour the oil/herb mixture through the strainer and into your bowl/pot.

7. Use a large spoon to press and recover more oil out of the herb.

8. Discard herb material.

9. Store finished oil in tight-sealing containers and refrigerate.
