How To Make Cannabis Capsules

With the growing popularity of cannabis use for the treatment of medical ailments, one of the few detractors from its acceptance is its differences in ingestion.

Here’s a great way to have your medicine, without the need to carry a pipe. It is also better than inhaling smoke, and the familiar act of taking a cannabis capsule makes it a more socially acceptable form of medication.

Yields1 Serving

What You Need: Cheesecloth, Baking Sheet, 2 Small microwave-safe containers, Aluminum foil, Rubber Bands, Rubber Gloves, Food Processor, Crack Pot, 10ml Tapered Syringe, Capsule Filling Machine, Gelatin Capsules
 5.50 g Dried Cannabis
 ¼ cup Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

1

Preheat your oven to 225 degrees, and plug in your crock pot, set to low. These will both take a while to heat up.

2

Line your baking sheet with aluminum foil to prevent buds from sticking

3

Grind your buds finely so they cook more evenly.

4

Place buds evenly on baking sheet and place in oven for 1 hour.

5

Measure 1/4 cup of Extra Virgin Coconut oil and add it to the crock pot.

6

Remove the dried cannabis from the oven and grind again until it is a powder.

Add ground cannabis to the crock pot, making sure to completely submerge in the coconut oil.
7

Cook for 3 hours, though some will say you can leave for longer, as long as the temperature is low

8

Stir every half hour for the first 2 hours, with a metal spoon, (no plastic).

9

Set up your capsule set according to the directions, and set aside the tamper, which is not needed for liquids.

Set up 50 capsules in the Cap-M-Quik, making sure not to mix up the tops and bottoms.
10

Cut a rectangle of cheesecloth that is twice the size of the opening of the microwave-safe container, plus about 2 inches, and fold in half; this will at as our strainer. Hold in place with rubber bands.

11

Turn off crock pot and allow mixture to cool for 15 minutes.

12

Spoon and pour contents of crock pot onto the cheesecloth. Oil will slowly drip through into container. You can let it sit for a few minutes, but don’t let the oil go cold.

Remove rubber bands without letting cheesecloth fall into oil, and lift up. Bring ends together and squeeze out as much remaining oil as possible. Oil may still be very warm! It is a good idea to wear rubber gloves, to keep the mess off your hands.
13

Throw out the leftover bud. It has no usable properties left.

14

Use the syringe to load the oil into the capsules, being careful not to overfill. If it gets clogged, squirt it back into the container; don’t make a mess over the capsules.

15

Close the capsules according to the directions in the kit. You should hear then snap tight.

16

Refrigerate after making the Canna-Caps, and the oil will turn a lighter color as the coconut oil becomes solid.
