In the Kitchen: Cannabis Infused Oil Instructions

Posted by Maggie Tamo on

Infused Oil using CF20 Cannabis Infuser.

  • 16 ounces of extra virgin olive oil (I prefer single origin Greek olive oil)
  • 2-4 grams of organic pesticide free cannabis (we prefer higher CBD strains)

Step 1 Clean Your Herb

As with any cannabis infusion, you may want to consider “cleaning” and blanching your herb prior to infusing to leach out some of the chlorophyll and impurities like pesticides and metals (especially if your flower is not organic).

Step 2 Program, Simmer & Steep

First, swipe down to power your CF20 Infuser on, press the child lock button to unlock, and push down on the lid to open.

Next, measure up to 16 oz (no less than 5oz) of olive oil, or any ingestible oil or butter, and pour into the metal reservoir (you can use solidified butter or oil but we  recommend cutting it up into cubes first).

Then place your cannabis of choice in the infusion pod and insert where its says “Insert Here”, making sure the coin-shaped yellow magnetic mixer is aligned in the center of the reservoir before closing and locking the lid.

The last thing you need to do is set the desired time and temperature and simply press start. For this cannabis-infused olive oil recipe we’ll be infusing at 162°F for 2.5 hours.

Much like pre-heating an oven, the timer on CF20 Infuser will start counting down once the target temperature is reached. The digital display will read “INFUSING” once your infusion begins; when your infusion is complete, you will hear a “beep”.

Now all that’s left to do is place a clean mason jar on the circle tray and press the droplet icon to dispense the CF20 Infuser. Voila! You’re left with a gourmet cannabis-infused oil that actually tastes great, and can be used for all sorts of epicurean recipes. And best of all, when you’re finished infusing, you can throw the reservoir in the dishwasher for a no-mess cleanup.

On average, we find olive oil infusions typically keep for 10-30 days depending on the amount of moisture in your flower. You can prolong your shelf-life by using a sterilized container and keeping your finished infusions in a cool dark place.
