The Best Cannaoil Recipe

The Best Cannaoil Recipe

Many people think of cannabis butter when it comes to making edibles, but cannabis oil can work just as well. Also known as cannaoil, cannabis oil is made by decarboxylating your weed before infusing it with the fats in cooking oil. It’s easy to make and can be used in some amazing recipes.

Here’s a guide on how to make cannabis oil along with some of the best Cannaoil Recipes you should try out.

How To Decarboxylate Your Weed

Before you make cannabis-infused oil, you’ll need to decarboxylate your weed first. Decarboxylation is a process where you heat your weed at a low temperature. This activates the THC without burning your weed, giving you potent marijuana to infuse into butter or oil. Without decarboxylation, your cannabis oil won’t give you the powerful psychoactive effects that it should.

Decarboxylation is fairly simple and all you’ll need is a baking tray, parchment paper, and an oven. Preheat your oven to around 245°F. This is high enough to activate the THC in weed but not high enough to burn it. Place a piece of parchment paper over a baking tray and spread around 14 grams of weed across it. Don’t grind it, but spread the buds out evenly.

Place the tray in the oven and leave it for 30-40 minutes. You might want to give the tray a shake every 10 minutes or so to ensure the buds are heated evenly. After the time is up, simply take the tray out of the oven and leave it to cool. You can also grind your weed at this point to make it easier to infuse into cannabis oil.

After decarboxylation, the THC in your weed will be active. THC binds to fats in butter or oil, so you can now infuse it with oil to create a potent cannabis-infused ingredient.

How To Make Cannaoil In A Double Boiler

One of the easiest and most popular ways to make cannabis cooking oil involves using a double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler, you can create one simply by using a saucepan and putting a glass cooking bowl inside. This method is straightforward and only requires weed, oil, and some basic kitchen equipment. We recommend Coconut Oil, but you can also use Olive Oil, Canola Oil, and other types of cooking oil.


  • 14 grams of weed (decarboxylated and ground)
  • 2-3 cups of oil
  • 1 cup of water

Step 1: Start by taking a saucepan or the bottom of your double boiler and filling it with water. Fill the top of your double boiler (or a glass bowl) with oil. Coconut Oil works best, but you can use any kind of cooking oil. Place it on medium heat- the goal is to let it gently simmer without reaching a rolling boil.

Step 2: Lower the heat of your pan before you add your weed. You should also grind your weed before adding it. Once you’re ready, add your weed to the top of your double boiler and mix it with the oil.

Step 3: At this point, you simply need to stir your weed and oil and allow it to simmer without it reaching a boil. If it begins to boil, remove it from heat and lower the temperature. Keeping a low heat is important as high heat can result in you degrading your cannabis and losing THC.

Step 4: Continue to stir and let the mixture simmer for 2-3 hours. Now, place a strainer/cheesecloth over a clean glass jar and strain your cannabis oil through. This will separate the oil from any excess weed. Allow all of the liquid to strain through and squeeze the weed to remove any excess oil. Now place your weed oil in a fridge or a cool, dark place.

How To Make Cannaoil In A Crock-Pot

Making cannabis oil in a double boiler isn’t the only option. You can also make cannaoil using a Crock-Pot or Slow Cooker if you have one around the house. This method is just as simple, although you’ll probably need to leave your cannabis oil in the Crock-Pot overnight. However, it also requires less effort than cooking cannaoil in a double boiler.


  • 14 grams of weed (decarboxylated and ground)
  • 2 cups of oil

Step 1: Start by pouring all of the oil into the Slow Cooker. Coconut Oil usually makes for the best kind of cannabis oil, but you can also use other cooking oils such as Olive Oil or Canola Oil. 

Step 2: Add your weed to the Slow Cooker. Make sure your weed is decarboxylated and ground before you use it. After adding your weed, stir it until it’s completely covered in oil. You’re now ready to cook your cannabis oil.

Step 3: Turn your Slow Cooker on using the lowest heat setting. Low heat is important as high heat can result in your cannabis degrading. Most people cook cannabis oil in a slow cooker for 4-8 hours. The longer the time, the more potent your cannaoil will be.

Step 4: Once you’re ready, remove your cannabis oil from heat and allow it to cool for another 4-8 hours. Once it’s cool, use a strainer to separate the oil from the weed into a container. Seal your container and place it in the fridge or a cool, dark place.

Cannabis Fruit Gummies Recipe

Cannabis Fruit Gummies Recipe

This is one of the best cannaoil recipes to try, especially if you enjoy snacking on gummy sweets. You’ll need to grab some gummy molds to make these- these can be found in all shapes from bears to worms and even cannabis leaves. You can either use fruit puree or fruit juice for flavoring, but add an extra half tablespoon of gelatin if you use fruit juice to improve the thickness of your gummies.


  • 3 teaspoons of Cannabis Oil
  • 3 tablespoons of Gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons of Honey or Syrup
  • 1 tablespoon of Lemon Juice
  • ⅔ cups of Fruit Puree or Fruit Juice (you can choose any flavor or even mix flavors)
  • ⅓ cup of water

Step 1: Start by placing a saucepan on medium heat and combine your fruit puree/juice, lemon juice, and honey. Mix these ingredients thoroughly until they’ve been blended.

Step 2: Next, add 3 teaspoons of your Cannabis Oil and continue to mix ingredients. Slowly add your Gelatin next while continuously whisking the mixture. Continue to whisk all ingredients until the mixture becomes smooth.

Step 3: Once all your ingredients have combined and your gummy mixture is smooth, it’s time to start pouring it into your gummy molds. It’s best to do this using a dropper so you can apply an even amount of cannabis gummy mixture in each mold.

Step 4: When you’ve emptied your mixture into your molds, place them in the fridge for around 15-20 minutes. Once they’ve hardened, your tasty Cannabis Fruit Gummies are ready to use. Make sure to only take one at a time- it only takes a small dose to get high.

Step 2: Wait for your Cocoa Butter to melt and add your Cannabis Oil. Mix your ingredients thoroughly with a whisk until they’re fully combined.

Step 3: Once you’ve blended your Cannabis Oil with your Cocoa Butter, remove the mixture from the heat and whisk your Maple Syrup in. Once all ingredients are blended, add in the Cacao Powder and Vanilla Extract and continue to whisk.
