How to make your own cannabis oil

Cannabis oil has gained some fame after it has been found to possibly be able to limit the growth of and maybe even kill cancer cells. There are other medicinal effects too but it is best known for its potential benefits for cancer patients.

Here you will learn how to make the oil so that you can gain access to all the advantages without having to pay a hefty price. However, before the recipe, it is important to understand what cannabis oil is.

What is Cannabis Oil?

Cannabis oil is essentially a concentrated form of marijuana. The oil allows for pure THC / CBD to be consumed at much greater levels than afforded by smoking a joint or eating a brownie made with the flower.

However, it is worth noting that cannabis oil and CBD oil are not the same things. If you go online and buy CBD oil you will likely end up purchasing something made from industrial hemp which lacks most of the beneficial properties of cannabis that has been grown with the proper care in the right conditions.

Unfortunately, many people try to take advantage of the oil’s growing popularity by selling hemp oil instead. The only way to be completely certain is to make it at home using a simple recipe.

How to Make Cannabis Oil in your own Home

Before you begin, you are going to need a little time. The whole process takes about 3 to 4 hours so make sure you set aside the time first.

99.5% Isopropyl Alcohol (2 Cups or 500ml for every ounce of cannabis)
Cannabis (Higher quality organic cannabis will produce more oil)

It can help to chill the alcohol in the freezer the night before you prepare the oil. This allows the trichomes to be separated more easily from the flower.


  • Two stainless steel stock pots
  • A long stirring spoon
  • A rice cooker (use stainless steel since non-stick surfaces may leach into the oil)
  • A cooling fan with a long cable or extension cord
  • Funnels
  • Coffee filters
  • Clean plastic bottles
  • A measuring cup
  • A coffee warmer
  • Large syringes

Step 1.
Place the cannabis in a steel pot and add the alcohol before crushing the mixture with the long wooden spoon for five minutes.

Step 2.
Continue to add alcohol until all of the cannabis is completely submerged, continue to stir and crush the mixture for another five minutes.

Step 3.
Transfer the mixture into a second pot. While doing so try and keep as much of the marijuana in the first pot as possible but do not worry if a little is transferred with the liquid.

Step 4.
Add more alcohol to the first pot and crush again for five more minutes.

Step 5.
Pour as much liquid as possible again from the first pot into the second.

Step 6.
Dispose of the plant material in the first pot and rinse it clean.

Step 7.
Combine a coffee filter and a plastic funnel and strain all of the liquid from the second pot into a bottle so that the last of the plant material has been separated.

Step 8.
Setup the rice cooker and electric fan in a well-ventilated area, preferably outside.

Step 9.
Fill the rice cooker with the marijuana liquid mixture but do not pass the three-quarter level or it will boil over.

Step 10.
Turn the rice cooker to its highest temperature and turn on the fan making sure that it is aimed directly at the cooker at all times.

Step 11.
As the liquid boils away, keep the cooker topped up but do not exceed the three-quarter level.

Step 12.
When all of the liquid has reduced down to about 2 inches in the cooker, add about 10 drops of water.

Step 13.
While wearing oven gloves, swirl the remaining mixture in the rice cooker.

Step 14.
Wait for the oil in the cooker to begin to bubble and produce dark steam.

Step 15.
Adjust the rice cooker to low and wait for it to cool and then turn it off.

Step 16.
Leave to cool for about 5 minutes.

Step 17.
Pour the mixture into the measuring cup and use the coffee warmer to remove the remaining water. This process is complete when the bubbling has ceased.

Step 18.
Allow the mixture to cool.

Step 19.
Store the mixture in the syringes.

That is it. It can be a little time-consuming and seem daunting at first but the process of creating cannabis oil is relatively simple and will become easier with practice.
