Resin Extraction for Cooking

Cannabis butler and oil are simple to make. Each takes a little time to make, but large batches can be processed and stored in the refrigerator or freezer.

The psychoactive cannabinoids dissolve in butter, cooking oil, or alcohol (see "Tinctures" below). Dissolving the resin in the butter, oil, or alcohol makes it available for absorption by the body. Cannabis butter contains about 80 percent of the cannabinoids that were in the original foliage used to make it.

Heat 1.6 quarts (1.5 L) of water in a large pan on the stove. Add 4 ounces (112 gm) of marijuana leaf, one pound of butter (or margarine) and stir.

Bring the liquid to a boil. Put the ltd on the pot and simmer two hours on low heat, stirring occasionally.

Strain the mix through a colander, catching the liquid below. Press the wet foliage to get all the liquid out.

Pour 0.5 quart (0.5 L) of boiling water over the wet leaf to wash out remaining butter. Press the leaves to squeeze out all the liquid possible.

Let the mix stand and cool. Within an hour or two, the mix will separate-water on the bottom and cannabis butter on top. You can speed the process by placing the hot mix Into the refrigerator.

Pour off and discard the water, and retain the cannabis butter.

Use the butter in any recipe that calls for butter. Use small portions until you are familiar with dosage and effects. Be careful when consuming; the butter is quite potent!

Cannabis vegetable oil is made very much like cannabis butter.

First, you substitute one quart (1 L) of vegetable oil instead of butter.

Heat 1.6 quarts (1.5 L) of water in a large pan on the stove. Add 4 ounces (112 gm) of marijuana leaf, one quart (1 L) of vegetable oil, and stir.

Bring the liquid to a boil. Put the lid on the pot, and simmer two hours on low heat, stirring occasionally.

Strain the mix through a colander, catching the liquid below. Press the wet foliage to get all the liquid out.

Pour 0.5 quart (0.5 L) of boiling water over the wet leaf to wash out remaining butter. Press the leaves to squeeze out all the liquid possible.

Let the mix stand and cool. Within an hour or two, the mix will separate. Once completely separated, put the mix into the freezer. The water will freeze in 4-6 hours. Pour off the cannabis oil. If you are using olive or peanut oil, they will coagulate in the freezer and cannot be poured off. Use a spatula to scrape the oil from the water.

The oil will liquefy at room temperature. It will keep for about a month at room temperature. Keep in the freezer for longer term storage.

Use cannabis oil in recipes as you would any vegetable oil.
