Crockpot Cannabis Infused Coconut Oil


One of the things that got me excited about adding vaporizing to my medicating options is that I can save the used cannabis matter and use it again later for cooking. Yet another perk of being combustion free!  So, over the past couple of months I’ve been accumulating a tin of toasty vaped flower and finally saved enough to cook with. It was kind of exciting since I have never done any cooking with cannabis that has been vaporized before.

I’m happy to report that my first experience cooking with ABV (Already Been Vaped) cannabis was awesome. Since the bud had already been decarboxylated when it was vaporized, I was able to skip that step. I gladly skipped that step! If you have ever spent your hard-earned money on an ounce of marijuana that you were cooking with, you know exactly what I mean when I say that it can take a little courage to put your flower in a hot oven and then mix it in oil. 

I kind of followed a recipe for directions but adjusted the measurements according to ratios that I have had good success with in the past. I also simplified the directions so that all you do is put everything in the crock pot and turn it on. I guess I really didn’t follow the recipe at all but it still turned out.  It was ridiculously easy and the finished product came out beautifully potent.

Easy ABV Cannabis Coconut Oil

1C previously vaporized cannabis flower

1C coconut oil


1) Put the coconut oil and the dry matter in the crock pot and set on low.


2)Let it brew over night and stir every once in a while. This batch sat for 17.5 hours. 


3)Drain the oil through a cheesecloth. Or damp paper towel if you are like me and get to this point in the process and remember that you have no cheesecloth. 



The color went light green as it cooled.

4) Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge.

I sampled just 1 teaspoon to test its strength this morning at 10:45am. It is now 7:30pm and still working. So, yes, it is potent. I ended up getting 3/4 of a cup of finished oil. That is about 36 single teaspoon servings! I would have been able to squeeze out more if I had proper straining cloth instead of paper towels. Lesson learned.

I love the fact that I got twice the use out of my cannabis just by mixing it with oil that I already use on a daily basis. Now I have a healthy and effective infused cooking oil in my pantry that I feel good about medicating with. Oh, did I mention that I supposedly can use it as a topical too? I’ll let you know if that works out.

Until next time…vape, bake, and enjoy eating your greens.

  1. Cool that u can still get medicine after vapeing your bud. I have never tried that. Definitely try some as a topical treatment it really works really well. You can mix it with your favorite lotion or add beeswax and make a balm. Thanks for sharing your experience with this project!


  2. WOW just what I was searching for. Came here by searching for toothache pain reliever

    If one uses the Volcano vaporizer, as I do on a daily basis, one reaps a THIRD usage (in addition to the initial and ABV uses) from the same original plant material because essential oil residues collect and are easily scraped from the inside of the valve, making it supereconomical.
    Try it out.

    Do you have any iea what ratio to use for fresh? I am a new user (just gto my card today) and I have no clue what to do with it. I cant smoke or vaporize so im trying to find a versatile recipe. I use coconut oil a lot so it seems good but I only have 1 gram to play with for a while. Im hopeful it will help my nausea but this is expensive!


    • I’m afraid I don’t know have any one gram ratios for infusing cannabis into coconut oil. I know how expensive it can be when you are buying flower and figuring out what to do with it. Purchasing flower by the gram is probably the fastest way to watch your money disappear. If possible, you might consider saving up and purchasing larger amounts where you can get a better deal than by the gram. Also, everybody is different, but for me vaporizing has the best way to treat nausea because it works almost instantly. Good luck in your journey to better health through cannabis. It can be overwhelming at first.

    I found this article very informative. I had a question though about the recipe for making this. If i were ego use and ounce of high grade bud, how much oil would i use in my crockpot? I’m going to be using coconut oil because of its fatty qualities. I would really appreciate the help. Thanks :)

    Could this be put into capsules as well for medicating? By the way, i love this idea!
