It is well known that marijuana is a plant that can be used for medical purposes. People around the world have used cannabis for healing inflammation, aches, menstrual pain, insomnia, swelling, anxiety, depression and many other health problems.
Some experts who work with this plant state that weed mixed with coconut oil can become more bio available, which means that the absorption and utilization of the nutrients will reach higher level by every internal system.
The effectiveness in the extraction of THC is due to the richness of saturated fat of coconut oil. Cannabinoids can be absorbed by other oils too, like butter but the coconut oil absorption is much better.
Consuming cannabis as infusion in virgin coconut oil is the healthiest and simplest method for medical purposes. Very much like cannabis, coconut oil also has lots of benefits to the health and because of that is used in skin and hair care commercial products. Virgin and organic coconut oil can help the digestion and can help to improve the immune system. This oil has significant amount of caprylic, capric and lauric acid. All these acids are known for their anti-fungal, antimicrobial and antibacterial properties.
Cannabis Coconut Oil
To prepare this oil, place one gram of de-carboxylate marijuana for every ounce of virgin coconut oil. Place the crashed marijuana in a glass jar and add the coconut oil. Put the lid on the jar, seal it well and put it in a pan full of water. Slowly heat the water and keep it below boiling level for 60 minutes. This will keep the oil safe from overheating.
Next, use a strainer to strain the mixture to eliminate solid elements. Make sure to squeeze the juice from the cannabis.
Once you are done with this procedure, you can eat the cannabis coconut oil like that or use it in other foods or apply it as a lotion. Feel free to cook with this treated oil, only when the temperature is lower than 315 F. That is the temperature of the point of boiling of the active compound of marijuana. If you use higher temperatures the effects will be gone.
