Create Your Own GALACTIVATED Cannabis Infused MCT Oil

MCT oil is extracted from coconut oil using heat + pressure. It is often added to smoothies, used as a salad dressing, or used with ghee butter for bulletproof coffee. Cannabis has been effective in treating pain, anxiety, insomnia, and depression for many people on this planet. Learn more about the benefits of edible cannabis here.

Medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil contains medium-length chains of fats called triglycerides. Due to their shorter length, MCTs are easily digested and many health benefits are linked to the way your body processes these fats. You can read more about the benefits of MCT oil here.

Cooking MCT oil in cannabis flower is really easy! You can easily infuse any meal by squeezing the dropper over your cooked meal. You get the benefit of both the THC and CBD without needing to smoke flower, making it super bio-available and incognito. Works great topically as well, since MCT oil stays in liquid form.

A slow cooker/crock pot or pressure cooker

Cannabis Flower (source your grower, read the lab tests)

30 fl ounces or more of MCT Oil (local health food store, or search online for organic MCT oil)

Reusable hemp almond milk bag strainer

Large Wooden Spoon

Take your cannabis bud and grind up to a fine powder in the blender. Do a little at a time so the oil won’t build up. You can use any part of the cannabis plant including trim, the bud has the most amount of THC.

Put 9 cups of ground flower into the crock pot and stir the MCT oil into it. You want the flower to be completely covered by the oil. The cannabis plant high is dependent on your perception, so we like to put Lemurian Quartz crystals and Nevalite Montmorillonite Clay into the crock pot as well, along with channeling extraterrestrials, clanging some singing bowls and playing music to the cannabis plant while its cooking. It might sound ridiculous, but its a lot of fun.

We like to cook it very s l o w l y on low heat. The longer you cook it, the stronger the medicine will be. Cooking it too much will burn it, so keep a close eye on it. If it starts to boil, bring the heat down or off to stabilize the temperature. Stir as often as you check the temperature. We like to cook ours for 36 hours. After its done, let it cool down enough where you won’t burn your hands. Use a wooden spoon to shovel the plant matter into the strainer cloth, and squeeze the oil into another bowl. Put the plant matter into another bowl, and use it as a wonderful THC/CBD filled sprinkle for your food (highly potent! Experiment with a 1/2 teaspoon to start). After you strain the plant matter out of the oil, strain it another 2 more times.

I like to put some into a small 15ml dropper bottle to travel with. For first timers, try a quarter or half dropper to start. Add to your tea or coffee! Drip under the tongue subliminally for fast, effective dose. Inquire within to learn more about our process!

Our favorite strains to use are Skunk OG, Hindu Kush, Magic #9, and Lambs Bread.

MCT oil is better at extracting and preserving terpenes

Medical cannabis producers need to ensure consistent and stable quantities of cannabinoids and terpenes in their extracted oil products.

Yet cannabis extracts are manufactured in many different ways, begging the question of which medium is ideal for extraction and storage.

Italian researchers, in a study published in the journal Molecules, compared the relative merits of two lipids commonly used to make macerated cannabis oils.

While they found the extraction and stability of cannabinoids were no different when either olive oil or medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil was used, MCT oil did lead to the extraction of more terpenes, and they were more stable than in olive oil.

This discovery could have an impact on how producers make cannabis-based oil products, especially in Europe.

Humans have a long history of extracting active ingredients from cannabis using different solvents. North American producers tend to extract using supercritical CO2 or an organic solvent, such as ethanol.

The authors of the study looked at oil extraction from two cultivars – Bedrocan (22% THC, o C and opened twice each day before testing at various intervals. Cannabinoid quantities and the terpene profile in each oil were measured at various times over the course of 90 days.

THC and CBD were equally stable in both types of oil for the first 60 days, after which the concentration of both began to decrease.

MCT oil preparations resulted in more terpenes being extracted than with olive oil.

There was a significant reduction in terpene concentrations during storage when either oil was used, but terpenes were more stable in MCT oil for the full 90 days.

MCT oil’s ability to preserve concentrations of the key active ingredients – which might be working together as an entourage – suggests it could be preferable to olive oil as a solvent.
