Cannabis Oil Made With Trim

 

STEP ONE

  • 1 lb fresh trim (I trim all season and keep it in the freezer in a Ziploc bag. When it’s packed full, it usually weighs about a pound.)
  • 1 cup vodka
  • 8 cups water

Boil water and vodka in a large pot. Add trim. Bring back to a boil for about 3-5 minutes, or until the trim looks like this:

Strain and press all of the water out.

Chop the hell out of it in a food processor or by hand.

STEP TWO

  • 2 cups melted coconut oil
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 t soy lecithin (optional)

Put the trim back into the pot and add oil, water, and lecithin. Make sure the water covers the trim. Bring up to medium heat and stir often. You don’t want it to boil, just up to a simmer. It should have the consistency of a very thick broccoli soup.

Cover and cook on low, checking and stirring every 1/2 hour for at least 2 hours. (I keep mine on the burner pretty much all day.)

Strain out the plant material, squeezing out as much liquid as possible.

Pour the remaining liquid into a large bowl and put it in the fridge.

The oil will separate from the water when it’s cold, so you can easily remove it from the water.
