To prepare this powerful remedy, you need 1 gram of decarboxylate marijuana for each ounce of virgin coconut oil. In a glass jar, put the crushed marijuana and pour the coconut oil. Seal the jar well, and place it in a pan filled with water. Heat the water gradually, but don’t let it boil for an hour. This will prevent overheating the oil.
Then, strain the mixture using a strainer, or cheesecloth, to eliminate any solid particles. Squeeze the juice from the marijuana well.
