    Now the hard part. Pour the oil and plant material in to the funnel. I put down paper bags or card board cuz it splatters. Pour it slowly allowing the oil to drain. 15256673924821863711495.jpgas you can see the splatter on the cardboard. Whoops!

    Now unclip it and bring the ends to together and twist the heck out of that thing. Wring out every last bit of oil. Oil has a better return than butter, in my experience15256676307602138378740.jpgand dont use your phone during this process...oil gets everywhere!!!

    After completed keep the oil in the fridge as this will invariably extend it's shelf life. I have "nipped" off a jar for 3 months and it never went bad. I have even traveled out of town with it in a back pack (non-refrigerated) and no issues. You can also use this oil as a 1:1 substitute for butter in recipes. As with ANY CANNABIS RECIPE...do not exceed recommended cooking temperatures. Better to put the cannabis in a sauce or glaze, perserving the THC and CBD. If baking with it lower the temperatures and increase the baking time. As always consume your edibles on an EMPTY STOMACH to feel its full effects. Allow 6-8 hrs of good buzz. If choosing to put the oil in your coffee like i do, i find a single dose to be 1 Tbsp. Maybe more on the weekends. Start small and add as your tolerance increases.

    Not sure if its the cannabis or the coconuts or the lecithin. But for once my blood pressure is in check. I have had pre-hypertension for years. And not to mention my feet are as soft and supple as they have ever been. (he said supple) I used to have bad cracked callouses on my feet. I have been using this infusion EVERY DAY for 6 months. And i will continue. I also have a "high inner ocular eye pressure" which is a precursor to cataracts...or glaucoma. Before this oil the Dr said i NEEDED eye drops. (I never got them) But now the Dr says we will keep an eye on it. (No pun intended) This isnt adding up. my mood is pretty good through out the day too...and it aint just cuz of my soft feet. This oil is great for me. It may not work the same for some one else. We all are physiologically different and will have differing responses to the same input.

    Hey Patient Puffer, sounds like you've found the proper thing to keep you healthy!

    I also find coconut oil to be great for the body, skin and mind. Easily infused, easy to use!

    Due to concerns over coconut's saturated fat content raising cholesterol levels i need to say that indeed foods high in saturated fats are bad and raise your cholesterol when used. Especially on a regular basis. One should be aware of its ill affects. The recipe i use calls for Soy Lecithin. The is an emulsifier which breaks down fats and LDL's associated with saturated fats. I have done research on this matter weighing pros and cons. One of the studies i found shows promising results using soy lecithin to lower cholesterol levels.

    Clinical Study
    Influence of Soy Lecithin Administration on Hypercholesterolemia

    Recent studies suggest that lecithin-rich diet can modify cholesterol homeostasis and hepatic lipoprotein metabolism. Considering the phytotherapeutic impact of lecithin, this work hypothesizes that lecithin administration in hypercholesterolemic patients may reduce cholesterol concentrations by increasing biliary secretion. Total cholesterol and LDL were evaluated after soy lecithin administration in hypercholesterolemic patients. One soy lecithin capsule (500 mg/RP-Sherer) was administrated daily. One-two months before the treatment beginning, blood samples were collected for total lipids and cholesterol fractions analysis. The results showed a reduction of 40.66% and 42.00% in total cholesterol and of 42.05% and 56.15% in LDL cholesterol after treatment for one and two months, respectively. A significant reduction in total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol concentrations was observed during the first month of treatment, suggesting that the administration of soy lecithin daily may be used as a supplemental treatment in hypercholesterolemia.

    Lecithin is one of the nature elements that have dispersing properties. That is why it can emulsify fat, avoiding its absorption. Lecithin is capable of reducing LDL-cholesterol. It also promotes the HDL-cholesterol synthesis [27]. In addition to be used to help reduce cholesterol and triglycerides and protect the liver in the prevention of kidney stone formation, it is used as a tonic for the nervous system and brain activities. The Food and Drug Administration-(FDA) USA, and the World Federation of Cardiology recommended the use of 25 grams per day of soy protein, which corresponds to approximately 60 g of soybeans for cardiovascular disease prevention. However, it is not yet clear which components of soy are responsible for their antiatherogenic purposes.

    Recent studies suggest that a lecithin-rich diet can modify the cholesterol homeostasis and lipoprotein metabolism in liver. Lecithin diet modifies the cholesterol homeostasis in the liver, increasing the HMG-CoA reductase and alpha 7 hydroxylase cholesterol activities and decreasing the microsomal ACAT activity. The LDL concentration and size are also significantly reduced and the bile acid pool and bile lipid secretion are increased

    These were just a few of the highlights of the study conducted. Of course it makes more sense to not ingest the saturated fats at all. Yet if you feel you have no other choice, might i ask you to consider adding lecithin in to your diet to keep your cholesterol levels lower. There are more potential benefits associated with soy lecithin. But i am not posting those here, as this is not a pro-lecithin movement of sorts. Just something i would like to put out there.

    Here is the link to the complete study.
