Infusing Coconut Oil with Hash

IMG_1540

I like knowing ways to cook with cannabis where you don’t experience a strong cannabis flavor  but still receive the potent medicinal effects. One way to do this is cooking with hash. Hash is a concentrated form of cannabis made up from the trichomes that are collected from the plant. You don’t need very much of it when you cook and it is super easy to work with. This day, I prefer to infuse it into coconut oil that can then be used in any recipe I might be making.

Hash Infused Coconut Oil

2 teaspoons hash

1C coconut oil

1) Activate your hash. Very important step. Heat oven to 240F and place hash inside for 60 minutes. Make sure your oven does not get hotter than 240F by using a thermometer. The hash will get a toasty color. Gently crush the hash with a back of a spoon to break it down to be powdery-like.

2) Add activated hash to melted coconut oil in a double boiler and cook for about 30 minutes stirring often and making sure the hash is fully infused. You don’t want or need to get this too hot, you just want to fully melt the activated hash into the oil.

3) Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly before pouring it into a glass container. This oil can be stored in the pantry or the fridge. Use in cooking, baking, or take it straight.

Simple, right? The end hash coconut oil product smells and tastes great. And it is potent. This particular batch of oil was used to make just over 65 potent unbaked, sugarless cookies.  Each of those cookies provided a dose that lasted for several hours.

I used a hash from the Blue Dream cannabis strain which I personally find to be a beneficial daytime medicine. When ingested with coconut oil it works well for several hours on my body pain and is mentally uplifting and energizing. I do not take this strain too late in the afternoon or it will keep me up past my bedtime.

Got Hash? A little goes a long way.

    I make this using buds or even trim leaves. This is a great topical salve for any aches and pains. The coconut oil absorbs into the skin and is anti fungal, anti microbial as well. I have friends that use it for sciatic nerve and tmj pain. I’ve held some in my mouth and swished it around for a toothache and it cleared up the infection. Coconut oil and weed, wonderful stuff.

    Thanks for this great recipe idea.
    Was curious about how you found out what was
    the right temperature and the right amount of time to decarb?
    I would hate to over do it!
    And in using the double-boiler for 30 mins…
    how do I regulate the heat…
    especially when making small batches.
    …am I just simmering the water or boiling it?

    It makes sense to use a very small dbl boiler…
    as well as a small crockpot for small batches, right?

    Regarding your recipe for infusing ABVaped flowers:
    I ask the same question: how hot is too hot…even on low?
    Did the mixture sit just on warm and/or low for 17 hours…
    stirring occassionaly.

    My main concern in the ABV recipe
    was that it was such a small amount…
    how did it work to cover the bottom of the crock-pot
    without getting too hot because of the small amount?
    Do you know what I mean?

    Lastly are the ABV flowers that toasty golden brown…
    not “dark” brown, right?

    Thanks for your wonderful and pretty blog!

    • Hi Malana,
      Thanks for reading! I understand that anxious feeling about the temperature getting too hot. To be honest I don’t feel like I know the exact temperatures for anything because every person and every book that I have learned from seems to have a small variation and they have all seem to work. I do recommend getting a good thermometer, paying attention to what you are making, and knowing how your heat source varies in temperature. The more you cook with cannabis, the easier and less stressful it seems to get.
      Lastly, toasty golden brown not “dark” brown is right. :)
      OneLove,

    I am confused about measurements! How much in grams would 2 teaspoons be, and what is 1 C of coconut oil? I want to put as much Hash in as little oil as possible so as to put the mix into a capsule, and thereby have more control over the strength of each cap!!!! I’d appreciate any help you can supply. Ta. Mick

    • Hi Mick, Those measurements are a little difficult for most people who weigh their hash. It works out to be about 2g of hash to 1C of melted coconut oil. I would suggest cutting the oil in half or doubling the amount of hash to make them for capsules, depending on how many capsules you are making. Good luck!

      • Hey TwiceBaked, thanks for the recipe/article.

        I had a suggestion and a question.

        First my question: If the hash is not full melt, do you strain out the material that had not melted fully into the coconut oil?

        And now my suggestion: Matt Rize, the ice hash master, said to “use a quarter (7g) of hash for a cup (8oz) of coconut oil. Depends on the hash quality”

        That was for GOOD quality! So 2g of hash to 8oz/1cup may not be enough, especially if people’s hash is not of very high quality.
        :)

    What would a serving size be for the 2t to 1 cup ratio? If I were using it in my snickerdoodle recipe (http://wakeandbakecookbook.com/baking-with-cannabis-snickerdoodles/) 1 cookie contains about 1T of regular trim infused coconut oil. Would that be too strong if I were using this hash oil? I guess what I’m asking is, if you take a tablespoon of this stuff, is it going to knock you out?

    Thanks for the post!

    Much love,
    Corinne
