The combination of cannabis and coconut oil

Cannabis can be used in different ways. The tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol are the 2 most active phytochemicals and they are fat soluble which is great as they can be added in coconut oil.

The psychoactive component of cannabis is THC not CBD. Marijuana strains that contain THC can be used for treating nausea, asthma, sleep disorders, digestive problems, and glaucoma:

“In experimental studies it was shown that certain cannabinoid agonists (WIN 55212-2, anandamide) can act like «ideal drugs» for treating glaucoma, because they have perfect tolerability after you apply them topically and they can reduce the intraocular pressure, and also act like neuroprotectors on the retinal ganglion cells.”

High concentrations of CBD deliver better results for treating chronic pain, seizures, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), cancer, tumors, psychological and neurological disorders.

“It seems like CBD can give you natural protection from getting high from marijuana. Different studies claim that CBD can help and reduce the intoxicating effects of THC, including paranoia and memory impairment.

It also seems like CBD can counteract the effects of sleepiness caused by the THC and this explains why certain cannabis strains can raise the alertness.

THC and CBD cannot be the reason for lethal overdose, but in order to reduce the possible side effects, you should consume cannabis that has higher level of CBD.”

Raw cannabis does not have psychoactive qualities. However, if you heat it there will happen a chemical reaction here the tetrahydrocannbinolic acid (THCA) will loosen the carbon atom, and this way it will form the THC.
This is a procedure for decarboxylating and it is made before it is added in food or like a skin balm and it has very protective effects; because THC can be attach to the cannabinoid receptors that can be found in the body.

The oven should be preheated to 115°C. Using your hands you should break the cannabis in smaller buds. On a parchment paper, spread one layer of the cannabis bids and remember not to leave an empty space between them.

Bake the cannabis for 30-40 minutes and toss them on every ten minutes. Once the cannabis is dry and has darker color you can leave it to cool down.

Take a food processor or a bender and ground it and transfer it in an airtight glass container.

Making of the oil:

You will need:

• 30 ml of cold-pressed virgin coconut oil
• 1 gram decarboxylated marijuana

Directions:

Add the coconut oil and crushed marijuana in a glass jar and close it tightly. Add it in a pan with water and turn it on low heat. The water should be gently heated and should not start boiling.

In the end, using a cheesecloth or fine mesh strain the solids and put the oil a clean and study glass jar. Finally, squeeze all liquid from the cannabis in the oil.
