Without a doubt, cannabis helps with many diseases and coconut oil has many health benefits as well. If you prepare this cannabis coconut oil, you will get all the amazing benefits the both supply!
The cold-pressed virgin coconut oil is full of nutrients. It has potent antioxidant and antibacterial properties and it cleanses and hydrates the skin.
Every cell in the body benefits from it when it is consumed, and also balances hormones, regulates cholesterol levels, soothes inflammation, increases metabolism, relieves pain, treats depression, promotes brain and digestive health and destroys cancer cells.
These incredible health benefits are mainly due to medium chain fatty acids.
On the other hand, cannabis, like all plants, can be of many varieties. The two most active phytochemicals in marijuana are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The fact that they are fat soluble is another reason why coconut oil is perfect in the combination.

Easy Cannabis Coconut Oil Recipe
Initially, you must decarboxylate cannabis, which means that you must heat marijuana to release its THC and activate the healing compounds.
You will need:
1 oz of cannabis buds
A baking sheet
Preheat the oven to 240°F/115°C. Then, using your hands, break up the cannabis buds into smaller pieces and spread one layer on a parchment-lines rimmed baking sheet.
Don’t leave empty spaces between marijuana. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, tossing every 10 minutes. As soon as the cannabis turns darker in color and dried, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool.
Then, ground it coarsely in a blender or food processor. Keep it in an airtight glass container.
Here is how to prepare the oil:
1 g decarboxylated marijuana
1 oz cold-pressed virgin coconut oil
In a glass jar, add the crushed marijuana and the coconut oil, tightly fit the lid and place in a saucepan filled with water. On low heat, slowly heat the water for an hour without boiling.
Then filter the solids in the oil with a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth, and transfer it into another sturdy glass jar. Then, just squeeze the cannabis liquid into the oil.
You can consume the oil or use it topically. You can also eat the solids you extracted, cooked or baked in your meals. In addition, you can use this oil for cooking. However, be sure to avoid high temperatures so you do not cook out the active marijuana compounds.
