Regarding our free time, there are two cooking recipes:
Method 1 to obtain cannabis oil:
This method has a minimum duration of one month, and we can have it macerating for two months.
- -20 gr. of buds and leaves with trichomes – the bud should be dry.
- -Olive oil
*The quantities are approximated, and they can vary according to the consumer, his likes, and the quality of the buds – just buds, or buds with a leaf.
- -Mesh strainers
- -Pot or wider-opening bottle
Oil cooking part 1:
The buds cooked in this recipe have to be previously crushed.
-Firstly, we have to put the buds, and the leaves with trichomes, into de glass pot.
-We add the olive oil, and close the pot.
-We shake the pot, and we keep it in a dark place, away from direct light.
-We will leave the pot along one or two months, shaking it every three days approximately.
-When macerating time is finished, we strain the oil, and we pour it into a clean glass pot, to be preserved away from direct light.
As you can see, it is a very easy cooking recipe; the only disadvantage is its lasting time: if it is too long for you, you can choose the second option.
Method 2 to obtain cannabis oil:

-Firstly, we fill the pot – a glass can – with the buds and leaves, and we cover it with olive oil.
-We put the pot in bain-marie along 90-120 minutes; it is fundamental to control the temperature to prevent the oil for boiling: if the heat goes on, we have to remove the pot from the fire, so it gets slightly chilled.
