Coconut butter - belter - 02-19-2021

You will need 1/2 ounce of cannabis to yield 250mL of oil
Oil should be heated to 190-200 F and maintained.
Thc begins to boil off at 220F
Thc activates at 140F
Thc and CBD need an alcohol or oil substrate to be separated.
Substitute oil for you own oil if you wish.  Note the burning temp of the oil which must be in the range for the cannabis.

Grind cannabis removing seeds.  It must be broken up for penetration.
Measure 250ml of coconut oil and bring to melt.
Mix grind with oil.

Note for stronger add more cannabis.  

Allow to cook for 4 hrs maintain temperature.  The oil should be green in colour.
Bring oil to handling temperature.
Strain with cheese cloth several times to remove cannabis solids.  Use hands.  Squeeze solids.
Store in a cool dry place below 22 C as the oil liquifies slightly warmer than room temperature.

Use solids in a baked food recipe for a weaker treat adding additional oil to make it stronger.  Remove oil from recipe and remove some solids in baked good recipe to accommodate the cannabis.

To make a skin application ointment for muscles, joint or bone pain:

In the cooling stage while it’s still liquified add 10 drops eucalyptus, 10 drops peppermint, to the oil.  Once this is done it is now not edible as it is now toxic to eat.  Do not use on mucus membranes. For those, do not add any therapeutic oils.
