2.33 grams Ground Cannabis Flower

1/2 Cup Olive Oil


  1. Decarboxylate Prepare your cannabis by decarboxylating it first, this will activate the THC and/or CBD that will be infused into the olive oil. Preheat your oven to 220 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread your cannabis over the parchment and cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 22-30 minutes, keeping an eye on it, as every oven is different. When finished it should be lightly toasted, not burnt.
  2. Infuse your oil with the flower. Add the bud and olive oil into a double boiler, a slow cooker, or your sous vide and infuse over low heat, or 85C/185F for 2 hours.
  3. Strain over a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth. “NOTE: Use disposable kitchen gloves and flexible spatulas to handle this material. Handling this material with your bare hands can lead to an undesired experience as THC infused oil can be absorbed through skin.” (Chef Korby)
  4. Store the finished cannabis infused olive oil in a mason jar. The potency of the oil will depend on your bud’s THC and CBD content. Test out with a teaspoon and dose accordingly for what is right for you.

  1. I’d ‘highly’ recommend that if you actually want to taste any of the terpenes from the lovely strains mentioned in the article in your infused oils, you search for a different method of decarboxylating your flowers. While the quick and dirty method of tossing some buds in a hot oven is somewhat effective in activating THC, your terpenes will boil off way before your buds are decarboxylated. If you take a moment to make a foil pouch to allow your buds to decarb in, and then wait until it has returned to room temperature before opening, it will allow the more robust terpenes to remain, but if you actually want to retain the real terpieness of your flowers, decarb in a sous vide!
