make your own cbd thc capsules

Cannabis-infused capsules are also a perfect DIY project for anybody looking for a safe, inexpensive, and relatively simple at-home infusion. The required materials can be procured inexpensively, either online or at your local health food and/or drug store. This at-home project takes just a few hours and can be accomplished several different ways, depending on what ingredients and equipment are available to you.

STEP 2: INFUSION

Ingredients and Materials Required for Cannabis Capsules

If you’re looking for an effective and efficient way to orally dose your cannabinoids in a manner that’s free of unwanted calories and unnecessary ingredients, then cannabis capsules may just be your answer. Canna caps, as they are often referred to, have become a staple across the cannabis industry as they offer a safe and effective oral delivery method that can be easily dosed and optimally metabolized. Most dispensaries carry some variation of the canna cap, and depending on where you purchase them, they may differ in their potency and ingredients.

Keep in mind that dosing will vary considerably depending on a number of factors, such as the potency of your starting material and the ratio of the ingredients used. There is no standard ratio, but you can use our ratio(s) as a rough guideline and experiment to find what is right for you. The only way to fully know how potent your capsules are is to take them to a lab for testing, so don’t be afraid to use this option if it is available to you.

Now take your cheese cloth and secure it over the rim of your small bowl using the rubber band. When the oil is finally finished, remove it from the oven and strain the oil through your cheese cloth and into the small bowl, catching the unnecessary particulates along the way. Afterwards, be sure to let the oil cool to a temperature less than 100 degrees Fahrenheit before proceeding with filling your syringe. Gelatin capsules tend to melt over 100 degrees, so make sure that your oil is as cool as you can get it before letting it solidify.

Step 8

As you may know, the capsules will be super small so it’s almost impossible to fill them up without making a mess so the syringe serves to be able to fill the capsules without spilling precious oil.

Cannabis capsules are easier to make than edibles, not only you won’t have to bake cookies or brownies to medicate but you won’t be consuming sugar, which is a great benefit. Also, nobody will eat them accidentally, which is a huge pro if you have kids at home.

Making you cannabis capsules

You’ll need 60ml of coconut oil, coconut oils are preferred because it’s healthy, has a nice smell and it’s easy to work with but you can use whatever oil you want.

Due to the lack of carburation when ingesting pills, you won’t be inhaling smoke which can be a danger for people with respiratory problems or for those who smoke a lot. Avid smokers usually deal with respiratory irritations and other problems that will be avoided when consuming cannabis this way.

Turn off the slow cooker and let the mixture cool down for around 15 min, once it has cooled down, get a spoon and pour the contents on top of the cheesecloth so you strain the plant material.

Step 11

Cannabis capsules are an easy, discreet, and super-effective way to medicate. Taking a pill blends more seamlessly into most people’s daily routine than smoking, vaporizing, or eating an edible.

If you chose the oil-based capsules, use a syringe or dropper to carefully fill the bottoms of the capsules.

To determine the potency, let’s do some quick math

There are two routes to take when making your own capsules — infused oil or decarboxylated dry cannabis flower .

14 grams of cannabis into ¼ cup oil: (14 grams x 50mg THC = 700mg of THC) *¼ cup = 59.1 mL

We will be using “0” size capsules that can hold approximately 500 milligrams .
