Before you even grab the Crock, grab the cookie sheet. To get the most out of your weed, you want to decarb it first. Grind it up and put an even layer on the sheet. Have your oven at 240°F and bake the herb for 30-40 minutes, or until it is dry and browner in color. After it has cooled, pulse in a food processor until coarsely ground.

2. Choosing your oil

The higher the fat content in your oil, the better it will absorb the cannabinoids and terpenes of your herb. Fat also helps your body absorb the constituents of cannabis, so choose the best oil for your needs. Coconut oil is a great choice, but Canola also works, and can be used in more dishes.

3. Getting everything together

For every 1 to 1.5 ounces of ground herb, based on strength, you will want 2 cups of oil in the Crock. Add both in and stir until your cannabis is completely soaked, and not clinging to the walls above the oil. If you’re worried about using your slow cooker for cannabis oil, there’s always the MagicalButter machine, which makes things even easier.

4. Heat and reheat

On your Crock Pot’s lowest setting, heat the mixture for 3 hours, then allow to cool for about 8 more. Repeat this process once or twice to increase the potency, getting every last bit of THC and other cannabinoids absorbed into the oil.

5. Strain and store

Once the oil cools for the last time, use a fine mesh strainer, like a flour sifter, to strain out the herb as you pour the oil into a bowl. Press a spoon on the herb to squeeze any remaining oil through. You can now dispose of the plant material and bottle your oil in airtight containers for storage in the refrigerator.

So many uses
