How to make your own herb infused oil

How to make your own potent oil

POT by NOIDS is amazing when it comes to making your own herb infused oil, but what are the benefits of making your own canna oil? This blog explains just that and how to make CBDee oil or cannab-s oil.

Why make your own CBDee oil or cannab-s oil?

Of course CBDee oil can easily be found in stores nowadays, but it’s quite expensive for how little you get. That’s why a lot of people choose to do it themselves. Other good reasons to make your own cannab-s infused oil or CBDee oil are:

  • With infused oil you can make your own edibles, which means you have control over picking ingredients that match your dietary needs and preferences.

  • Get as much cannabinoids as possible out of the plant - smoking destroys about 50% of all cannabinoids, while oil can get 80% +, and you can extract not only from the buds, but also the sugar leaves and trims.

  • Personalize to the max. You can choose your preferred strain, oil and way of use.

  • Easy to control the dosage. You can make a very good estimate of how many mg cannabinoids you consume every day.

    If this is your first time ingesting cannabis through edibles, here’s a few things you should know when it comes to THCee:

    • Because of how your liver processes THCee when it’s consumed through an edible it will give a much more intense high than when you would consume it in a different way
    • Edibles containing THCee are great for people who are looking for a long lasting effect through the day (against anxiety for instance) or through the night (against insomnia for instance)
    • Edibles containing THCee are not the right choice for people who are looking for an instant high that only lasts for a few hours

    And when it comes to CBDee, here's a tip:

    • Plan your day accordingly when you consume an edible containing THCee. How long it takes before you can feel the effects depends on your metabolism and what you ate that day. How long the effects will last and how powerful they will be depends on how potent the activated parts in your edible are and on other variables.
    • We would recommend clearing your schedule for the day if you are trying out an edible of which the level of potency is unknown to you or if it is your first time consuming an edible altogether. Thank us later!

    Please note: High CBDee strains also contain THCee, it’s important that you keep this in mind. 


    How to use your canna oil

    Like we said it’s up to you to pick the oil you want to use to infuse with your herb with, so use infused butter when you want to bake a cake, infused olive oil when you’re making a salad dressing, infused canola oil when you want an oil that doesn’t have an overbearing taste or smell, infused coconut oil for your vegan recipes...The possibilities are endless! Why?

    Because you can literally recreate any existing recipe you want by replacing the oil in it with your own infused oil and make it healthier and more potent. Just be sure to pick the same oil they use in the recipe to infuse with your cannab-s, to make sure you get the taste you’re going for.

    Even though it is possible to bake with infused oil, we don't recommend it AT ALL, because with the temperature over 140º C, a significant amount of cannabinoids will evaporate. It is impossible to keep the dosage consistent although you might still experience the high. 

    Best practice: 

    1. Steam buns instead of baking.
    2. apply infused oil after baking as smear, topping or filling
    3. make dips with infused oil

    When using the stove, never go above 120º celsius.

    How to make canna oil

    So what is it you would like to make? It’s probably best to get the oil it says to use in the recipe that you want to try out, but if you are going off-book here are some tips:
    • Butter or plant-based butter
    • Olive oil for cold savory dishes like salads, baba ghanoush, hummus, pesto, but also for frying foods like scrambled eggs, seitan or tofu - and, of course, olive oil is very good for you
    • Coconut oil for vegan recipes
    • Organic liquid coconut oil for skincare products
    • Canola oil when you don’t want an overbearing oil taste as it is relatively tasteless
    • Avocado oil for making a wide variation of dishes - it’s also very healthy
    When you’ve decided on an oil, make sure to measure how much of it you are using and weigh out how much cannab-s you are using in order to make a precise estimate and to make sure you don’t go beyond your preferred level of potency.
    Tip: when you are cooking or baking you can always dilute your infused oil with regular oil. For instance, if the recipe calls for the use of one tablespoon olive oil you can use 3/4 tablespoon of olive oil and 1/4 table spoon of your own cannab-s infused olive oil. Especially when it comes to weed oil containing THCee you might want to start off slow and find out what level of potency best matches your wishes.

    The next step in making your canna oil is to decarboxylate your cannab-s. Our first blog is actually about cannabis decarboxylation - if you haven’t read it yet, just click here and then come back to finish infusing your oil. We’ve also made a video where we explain how to decarboxylate your weed using POT by NOIDS.

    Just remember to break your cannab-s flower by hand or with a grinder before you decarboxylate. Using an electric processor will not get you the best results. After decarboxylating your herb, it is time to infuse it into the oil you are using. There are a lot of intricate ways to infuse, but here at NOIDS we can confidently say that ours is the cleanest, easiest and most efficient way. Check out our video on how to use POT by NOIDS for infusion.

    How to get the preferred level of potency

    Because you can only estimate how much THCee your infusion contains it is of the utmost importance that you tread carefully. Try consistently measuring each dose and keeping a log of your experiences, so you can adjust potency in the future.

    There are ways of estimating the level of potency of your doses.
    1. figure out the total amount (mg) of cannabinoids in the total plant material.
    2. divide this amount by the total volume of the end product. 

    For example, if your plant material contains 1000 mg of CBDee/THCee:
    100 gummies - 10 mg CBDee/THCee per gummy
    200 ml of oil - about 5mg THCee/CBDee per ml

    We also provide a potency calculator: (

    Tip: If you don’t know the THCA percentage of your herb, you can estimate the percentage at 20%, because strains usually contain between 18% and 22% THCA.

    Let us know if this was helpful and if you have any questions, and remember that with infusion we are always talking in estimates, so always be careful and, especially if it is your first time ingesting THCee, it’s always better to start low and then build up to your potency level of preference.
