One of people’s favorite oil to make edibles with is cannabis infused coconut oil. In fact, there are entire cannabis cookbooks based around this oil. Most are already using it for there everyday cooking and baking needs. Coconut oil is full of good fats that are excellent for fully extracting all of the cannabinoids. In addition, coconut oil contains lauric acid.
Lauric acid creates a monoglyceride that acts as an antimicrobial. Plus, your end product will remain solid at room temperature. Check out the recipe this cannabis infused oil recipe HERE.
Olive oil is notoriously healthy and incredibly flavorful. Try infusing a big batch of olive oil and then making smaller batches with the cannabis-infused the oil and roasted garlic or dried herbs.
From there, you can add it to a delicious pasta salad or dip oil with soft warm bread. Helpful tip: Use a high-quality extra virgin olive oil that is actually olive oil and not colored and repackaged vegetable oil. Olive oil is far healthier than butter and it leaves you effects that are typically longer, stronger, and slower to set in. Check out the recipe HERE.
Red Palm Oil
Red palm oil is a beautiful, tasty oil that is rarely used in regular day cooking. The oil itself is good for high temperatures, so you can fry with it. However, the temperatures used in frying can make the more delicate terpenes and cannabinoids disappear.
It is best used at a low temperature, added to a stir-fry or curry at the very end. The tocotrienols found in palm oil also help support the heart against stress and is beneficial for skin health. So if you don’t want to eat it, put it on your skin. The THC has endocannabinoids that regulate skin inflammation, oil production, and even play a role in unwanted hair growth.

Pine Nut Oil
This oil is made for special occasions. However, it is the best oil I’ve ever used to make cannabis-infused pesto and it’s incredible for bruschetta! Add some goat cheese to top and sprinkle some kief. Voila! The recommendation is to use a 50/50 blend of Walnut Oil and MCT Oil (such as coconut oil) to make it more potent and a bit cheaper. But you can use just walnut oil if it’s what you have on hand. But make sure to not offer any pesto to our friends with nut allergies! Check out THIS yummy recipe!!
Infusing all of these oils is really easy. There are tons of instructional videos and recipes online. Happy cooking!
