Cannabis Fat Based Infusion Recipe in Pressure CookerWhat you Need:
4 oz. Coconut Oil (alternatively you can use 4oz butter, clarified is best, but unsalted butter will work, or 4oz olive oil. Coconut oil is the best option due to the high saturated fat content which will absorb more cannabinoids)
3.5g to 7g of your favorite strain of cannabis (alternatively if you vape cannabis flower, you can use your already vaped bud)
Mason Jar with lid
Cheesecloth or Coffee Filter
Sauce pot with trivet
Decarboxylation for Fresh Herb (skip this step if using pre-vaped herb)
Grind you fresh cannabis. Put ground cannabis into a mason jar and close mason jar only finger tight.
Place mason jar with cannabis on top of a trivet in a sauce pot on the stove top. Fill with water up to the level of your cannabis in the jar (not higher so the jar doesn’t float). Remove jars from water. Bring water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. When water is at a simmer, place mason jar with fresh herb on top of the trivet. Let that simmer for 90 minutes.
Making The Infusion
Once your decarbed cannabis has cooled down (or if you’re using vaped weed start at this step) pour 4 oz. of your oil or butter of choice into the mason jar over your decarbed weed. If the fat is solid at room temperature, make sure to melt it so it's in liquid form before adding to your decarboxylated cannabis. Stir to incorporate. Seal the mason jar shut, but only finger tight.
Place mason jar with melted butter or oil and decarboxylated cannabis on top of a trivet in a sauce pot on the stove top. Fill with water up to the level of your cannabis in the jar (not higher so the jar doesn’t float). Bring the water to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Let simmer for 2-3 hours. You will need to add in more water as some of it will evaporate.Let the oil or butter cool to a temperature you can handle.
Use cheesecloth or coffee filter to strain the cannabis flower from the oil. Coconut oil or olive oil can be stored at room temperature, but make sure to stir them well before using; butter should be stored in the fridge for longer term use. Use in any of your favorite recipes!
