Making Cannabis Oil
Step 1: Pull all the big stalks off the plant and discard.
Step 2: Soak the plant matter in the ethanol overnight – it will become extremely green as it also pulls out the chlorophyll. Make sure you don’t use up all your alcohol; you’ll need some to clean up with later.
Step 3: Strain the alcohol and plant matter through a thick stocking into a large pot. Make sure there’s no plant matter left in the strained alcohol.
Step 4: Double-boil the oil in water in an electric frying pan – like melting chocolate. The temperature should stay around 100°C. Ensure adequate ventilation during cooking. The cooking process can take a few hours.
Step 5: Move the oil to a smaller pot during cooking, if necessary, and use some of the spare alcohol to wash the first pot. The alcohol can then be added to the smaller pot.
Step 6: Allow it to cool to check that all the alcohol has been boiled off and once cooled down the look and consistency resembles Marmite.
