Cannabis-Infused Oils: The Tweed Way

If you’ve ever wanted to explore the world of cannabis cuisine, butter and oils are like the border crossing; they’re where your adventure starts. But first, if you have a moment, a word of advice...

Space

When it comes to cannabis consumption, and when it comes to infusing your butter and oils with our favourite little plant, remember the golden rule: start low and go slow. Start with a strain that contains equal or greater amounts of CBD than THC, note exactly how many grams you add to the recipe, and test it out using just a little bit to see if you’re comfortable with the product before cooking with any sizeable amount.

 

We recommend beginning with no more than the equivalent of 2.5 mgs of THC, and always waiting until the next day (at least) before increasing. And of course, carefully mark any foods and products which contain any amount of cannabis, and always keep them out of the reach of minors.

Cannabis-Infused Oils: The Tweed Way

  • 15 grams of your favourite Tweed strain (if you are new to cannabis in any way, start with no more than 5 grams and a favourite strain containing CBD)
  • 2 cups of your favourite olive oil or coconut oil

 

If you want to make more than 2 cups, go right ahead, but just make sure to maintain the ratio of cannabis to oil.

 

  1. Put the oil in a crockpot and set to low heat. 
  2. Add about a quarter of an inch of water to the oil in the crockpot. 
  3. While the oil is warming, place your Tweed cannabis in a bud buster or coffee grinder and grind until cannabis is fine. 
  4. Stir your cannabis into the mixture of oil and water (if you’re using coconut oil, wait until it’s fully melted before adding). 
  5. Leave the crockpot on low heat and set it for 10-12 hours, making sure to stir the mixture every 30-60 minutes. 
  6. After the 10-12 hours, strain the oil, removing the spent cannabis. 
  7. Put the newly infused oil (exciting, no?) into a sealed jar and set it in the fridge to cool and solidify. (If you’re using coconut oil, marvel at how it returns to its natural state. Life truly is beautiful.) 
  8. Once it’s solid, poke a hole or two through to the bottom of the jar. Hold it upside-down over the sink and let the water and excess sediment escape. Go, water, for you are free. 
  9. Use the oil in any of Tweed’s fine recipes that call for it. 

 

Aaaand you’re welcome. If this all seems a little too complicated, your best bet might be to buy a LEVO, follow the instructions, and enjoy.
