The general rule of thumb is to use a gram of decarbed hemp for every ounce of oil. Use more if you use trim or popcorn, less if you use premium flower or kief. It’s better to make a large batch instead of several smaller ones. This way you can sample and calibrate a small amount and scale your recipes up or down accordingly.
Strain the oil to remove the plant material. Be sure to press all of the oil out of the hemp. A quick way to strain it is to use a french press coffee maker. Or you can use cheesecloth or a jelly bag if you’re so inclined.
Making an infused oil is very similar to making cannabutter. “Whatever you make is only as good as the plant material used to make it.” Begin with a cultivar you know and like. Making infused oil is an excellent way to use trim and popcorn, which is less expensive than flower and buds. Grapeseed oil is an excellent choice if you want to make an infused topical oil because it is absorbed into the skin so well.
Oils are solvents for cannabinoids like CBD and THC. They are also excellent solvents for terpenes too. Yes, we sell an infused topical oil but you can make your own hemp infused oil at home with things you already have in your kitchen. It can be used as an edible or topical. That’s right: you can eat it or rub it on.
Store your strained infused oil in glass jars kept in the refrigerator.
My Main question is this. At what point is the infusion done? When are all the cannabinoids infused into the oil? The time I’m asking for is when the plant matter has little to no cannabinoids left and all/a large majority of the cannabinoids are now in the oil. Thus making the infusion done.
For now however I’m going to use the word infusion for the rest of the question.
So I live in a legal state and I’m allowed to grow up to 6 plants of varying maturity and also produce my own grapeseed oil infusions. So legality is not an issue for me. I’m stating that right off the bat. I’m not asking about legality. I’m asking about the chemistry behind it.
I’m assuming that there is a breaking point where the plant matter is done decarboxylating, and the oil has extracted all of the cannabinoids.
When making the infusion I’m using a ratio of 2 oz of dried but NOT decarboxylated plant matter to 1 quart of grapeseed oil (Any brand will do). Mainly the plant matter is the Buds/Cola’s. These bud’s have gone through the curing phase already and are dry.
I’m worried however that the oil at some breaking point will stop infusing the cannabinoids (because they’re already infused into the oil), and will start infusing things such as the chlorophyll, and unwanted plant matter into the oil (non-cannabinoid molecules and structures).
A lot of tutorials/online videos will say leave it sit for 4 hours, 8 hours, 24 hours. all the way up to 72 hours and more.
Safety First! As with all cannabis products, it is important to find your proper dose.
