After an hour, filter out the plant material using a Fine Mesh Strainer. Gently press the plant material to remove as much oil as possible.
Then put the filtered oil back on the stove to finish cooking.
We know it's done decarboxylating when the bubbles stop forming.
During the hour, we will notice the color of the Coconut Oil change from a greenish color to a darker brownish color. This is a natural part of the decarboxylation process.
Note: The small bubbles will begin to disappear as the decarboxylation process completes.
Monitor the Coconut Oil closely for an hour while the Dried Cannabis Flower decarboxylates and the THC infuses into the Coconut Oil.
Stir the Coconut Oil often and ensure the temperature stays as close to 104°C (220°F) as possible.
Manicure the Dried Cannabis Flower by removing any stems or seeds.
Then grind the Dried Cannabis Flower into a fine powder. This will allow the Dried Cannabis Flower to infuse faster and more effectively into the Coconut Oil.
Bring the Coconut Oil up to temperature.
Note: It is very important to use a cooking thermometer.
We are looking to slowly heat the Coconut Oil up to 104°C (220°F).
Note: Monitor and stabilize the temperature of the the Coconut Oil at 104°C (220°F) before adding the Dried Cannabis Flower.
