This is how I
make bud-oil (for cooking, not smoking).
start with your trimings - throw those outer fan leaves
away - just the closer trimmings of leaves with decent
THC on them. You will be placing these in oil so make
sure they are dry (think about how oil reacts with
2 - Oil - you want flavorless cooking
oil, vegetable or canola work fine (would you cook
brownies in olive oil?)
3 - Place
trimmings in crock pot, put oil in to ALMOST cover.
Remember you have a fixed amount of THC in those leaves,
the more oil you use the less potent it will be. Plus,
this will be cooking for 12+ hours and as it does stir
it once or twice and all the plant material will make it
to the oil.
4 - Here

as 18 hours with no ill effect. This is just on "low"
setting of crockpot. The room will get a nice grassy
5 - extract through a colander - you
don't need to worry about every little solid - just get
the majority of it.
6 - Carefully pour into
clean jars or whatever. Place in refrigerator to slow
down oxidization. You could now use this for anything
that calls for oil in the recipe.
