    Sounds like your going to be happy! Find recipes that use at least 1/2 cup of oil. Oatmeal or Sugar Betty Crocker Cookie Mix is a good place to start. If you oil does not taste as good as you would like, do not leave it overnight brfore straining. I have been using a French Coffee press to separate my oil from the cannabis. You can get these all day long at Goodwill. I also like flour sack cloth to strain with.

    I wasn't paying attention and added the MJ to the water before adding the coconut oil instead of the other way around. I noticed all the MJ is suspended in the water and the oil is on top. The oil is slightly green but... did I mess it up? Will the oil still be able to absorb the THC?

    I didn't measure anything, but I used about half of a tightly packed 16 oz mason jar and ground it all up in a coffee grinder. I left it boiling pretty much all day with about the same amount of coconut oil and it turned light green, I think it will be sufficiently potent for some brownies or something.

    This is a really old thread but I need some help please.
    i want to make some coconut oil skin lotion with added thc for a family member with non-malignant skin cancer.
    they have had surgery and had sections of skin cut out already,and they say they can't see anymore.
    Edit- this is just to be sure they are good-edit-

    here's the thing,all the recipes I find require you to extract the thc/cbd from bud with the coconut oil.
    well I have 17.6 grams of sifted THC to work with,I'm wondering if a can just add the THC directly to the coconut oil and be done with it?
    or do I need to follow the recipe To get the best results?

    thanks in advance

    You should decarb it
    and treat it just like herb...unless its more than 3 months old
    And cut amount called for in fourth?...yea sounds reasonable..or take 20%
    I don't know I'm really high

    Why would you decarb a topical? And why answer if you don't know? Perhaps you have hypergraphia.

    So I appreciate the help but those responses dident do much for me.
    i have 4 different recipes(all pretty close,one for lipbalm aswell)


    Should I heat the coconut oil to around 37.7c/100f degrees while mixing in the thc and just go for it?
    Or should I just take a bunch of bud and follow the recipe?


    i won't be adding any essential oils,Shea butter,vitamin e,ect.But if this works I will be trying my other recipe's

    Lol you still have to decarb if you want it to cross the bb barrier.......
    I answered to help...was to high(not weed) to figure yield and % off sift from herb...seems you were much more helpful

    As always lmao

    Yes you just add hot coconut oil to decarbed hash....doesn't really matter how you do it..your just trying to dissolve thc into oil

    I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY EVERYONE IS MAKING SUCH A BIG DEAL. YES, NATURES WAY UNREFINED EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT OIL IS THE BEST, AND CHEAP AT WWW.DRVITA.COM, W/FREE SHIPPING. 16 OZ.WEED TO ONE 16 OZ. JAR. COOK IT ON THE LOWEST FLAME, AND WATCH IT TO MAKE SURE IT DOESN'T FIZZLE, OR GET TOO HOT. IF IT DOES? TAKE IT OFF THE HEAT FOR AWHILE. USE A SPOON, OR GLASS OF SOME KIND, TO CHECK THE COLOR OF THE OIL. WHEN IT GETS DARK GREEN? (USUALLY ABOUT AN HOUR, TO 2 ON A FULL BATCH), LET IT SIT AND COOL. PUT A PAPER TOWEL IN A STRAINER, AND WHEN COOLED, POUR IT INTO THE STRAINER OVER A GLASS BOWL. POUR EVERYTHING IN, AND PUT A GLOVE ON TO SQUEEZE THE TOWEL TO GET ALL THE OIL BEFORE DISCARDING. I USUALLY LOSE LESS THAN 1/2 OZ. I TAKE IT AS A TINCTURE - 1/2 TBLS. DOES THE JOB, DEPENDING ON THE STRENGTH. I AM DISABLED AND HAVE MAJOR PAIN. THIS WORKS MUCH BETTER THAN SMOKING. ALSO, SEPERATELY, OPEN A FRESH JAR OF TRADER JOES ALMOND BUTTER. MIX IT UP AND TAKE OUT 2 TBLS. COOK 2 GMS WEED IN ABOUT 2 GMS. OF OIL, HIGHER FLAME, BUT WATCHING MORE CAREFULLY, AS IT TAKES MINUTES. WHEN DONE? LET IT COOL, THEN STRAIN IT INTO THE ALMOND BUTTER JAR AND STIR. REFRIGERATE AND EAT AS DESIRED. I USUALLY HAVE A TEASPOON WITH MY PROBIOTIC PILL FIRST THING IN THE MORNING. THEN ANOTHER WITH BREAKFAST AND THE OIL AN HOUR LATER, AFTER I'M ALREADY HIGH. ONE MORE AFTER LUNCH AND I'M GOOD ALL DAY.
