Here is a simple and easy recipe for cooking Cannabis oil with a slow cooking pot (you can also use a regular pot, but the result is usually less qualitative):
– 1 liter bottle of cooking oil – the kind you prefer (canola, sunflower, etc.)
– 35 grams of Cannabis flowers (preferably whole flowers over a blooming inflorescence)
Equipment required in the kitchen:
– Slow cooking pot (you can also use a regular pot, but it is recommended to invest and purchase a quality pot)
– Rigid plastic box
– Gas stove or electric stove
– A metal sieve or filter cloth
1. Grind the cannabis flowers with a grinder, sharp scissors or any type of food processor until you reach a rough powder. Note that it is best to avoid using electrical tools and perform the cutting work slowly and gently.
2. Pour the entire bottle of oil into the slow cooking pot and let it warm over medium heat for 10 minutes.
3. Add the broccoli to the oil and stir well. Note that the whole blossom is well covered with oil and also to lower the heating power to the lowest level before continuing cooking.
4. Cook the oil and flowers for 4 whole hours on low heat. There is no need to mix the contents of the pot as they do when preparing cannabis butter.
5. After cooking, turn off the pot and allow the oil to cool for 6-7 hours. It is very important to get full cooling before you can put the oil in the refrigerator, so as not to damage the quality of the active ingredients.
6. Stretch the filter cloth over the box and pour into it all the contents of the pot. Then, wring out the remaining liquid into the bowl with your hands, and be careful not to leave any greens that will enter the oil, as they can destroy it completely in a short period of time.
