  • cannabis
  • 23 mL coconut oil


Method #1 Use Concentrates

  • Decarb concentrates, if desired.
  • On medium heat, warm coconut oil to 150° F in a double boiler. You can use a pyrex measuring cup inside of a small saucepan filled with water for easier handling.
  • Stir in concentrates or tincture, turn heat to low and heat gently for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Allow to cool slightly if you are using virgin coconut oil. Cool to room temperature if you are using liquid coconut oil.
  • Separate capsules into tops and bottoms. Put bottoms into capsule holder.
  • Stir oil mixture. Immediately suck oil into the syringe to prevent particles from settling. Fill each capsule bottoms.
  •  Put tops on. Make sure the two pieces are securely pushed together. 

Method #2 Use Dried Flower

  • In a heavy saucepan or double boiler, heat desired amount of decarbed cannabis and virgin coconut oil with 3 to 4 cups of water on low heat for about 4 hours. Maintain 3 cups of water throughout this time.
  • Pour mixture through a fine strainer or cheesecloth. Chase with a few cups of boiling water to remove any remaining oil. Let mixture cool.
  • Remove hardened oil. Place into a saucepan and heat gently until melted.
  • Separate capsule tops and bottoms, place bottoms into capsule holder.
  • Suck up warm oil into a syringe and fill capsule bottoms. Put tops on caps, making sure the two pieces are securely connected.


Storing Cannabis Capsules

Virgin coconut oil will last on the shelf 6 months at 24°C without going rancid.
Because liquid coconut capsules tend to leak oil, don’t make more than a 15 day supply at one time.
Store capsules in a dark container since sunlight degrades THC.

Safe Storage of Cannabis Products

Always store cannabis capsules in childproof containers safely out of reach of children and pets.
