What Is Weed Infused Coconut Oil?
Weed infused coconut oil is a versatile and healthy oil infusion. Coconut oil has a moderately high smoke point, is light in flavor and odorless, making it the perfect base for cooking with Weed. Coconut oil is also a suitable carrier for cannabinoids such as THC and CBD.
Infusing Weed into coconut oil is an easy way to get your daily dose of weed without smoking it. You can even add some Weed infused coconut oil to your coffee or tea for an extra boost!

How To Use Weed Infused Coconut Oil For Your Skin And Hair
Coconut oil is one of the most popular oils used for skin and hair care. And now there’s a way to make it even better with the added benefits of Weed.
There are plenty of skincare products on the market that claims to have Cannabis in them, but they’re not always impactful. Therefore making your batch at home guarantees quality and sought-after benefits.
Coconut oil effortlessly penetrates the skin allowing the various cannabinoids to enter the bloodstream and interact with the endocannabinoid system.
Coconut oil is an excellent moisturizer that contains fatty acids to help maintain the skin’s elasticity. This natural oil has the highest concentration of lauric acid, helping fight acne, eczema, and other skin conditions.
Coconut oil also protects from sun damage, making it suitable for use on the face, body, and hair. The lauric acid found in coconut oil also protects the hair roots and can prevent damaged hair and dry scalp, leading to dandruff.
If you are looking for the best skincare products with cannabis that won’t break the bank, consider using coconut oil as a carrier for Cannabis infused products like lotions or balms.

Weed Infused Coconut Oil Recipe
Double Boiler Method
- Grind the Cannabis and decarboxylate it if it’s not already done
- Line a clean dishcloth in the heavy base pot or double boiler. Place the mason jars you intend to use on the cloth and fill the pot with water until the mason jars are at least 3/4 covered. Remove the jars.
- Insert the thermometer and start heating the water until it reaches 185° F. Reduce the heat source once the desired temperature is reached.
- Divide the coconut oil and decarbed Cannabis evenly between the 2 mason jars. Seal carefully ensuring no water can enter the jar.
- Carefully lower the jars into the water bath. We suggest using a rubber tong.
- Slowly simmer at 185 degrees Fahrenheit for 3 - 4 hours. Keep an eye on the thermometer and do not let the water temperature exceed 200° F.
- Once the infusion is complete, remove the pot from the heat and carefully remove the jars. Place on a dishcloth and allow it to cool slightly.
- Strain the contents of the jars using a cheesecloth or paper filter into a sterilized container.
- Coconut oil can go rancid and is best stored in the fridge.
- Your Weed infused coconut oil is now ready for use.
