What to do with ABV Weed? Make ABV Coconut Oil
How to make ABV coconut oil (crock pot method).
Here’s my recipe for making ABV coconut oil in a crockpot. It’s very easy- just cook vaped medical marijuana (ABV weed) and coconut oil together.
It’s an easy way to make edibles and using ABV weed is economical.
I use the resulting ABV coconut oil for microdosing, but you can use it however you like. You can use ABV coconut by eating the oil plain, filling capsules, or adding it into a recipe to make easy edibles.
Warning if you’re just starting with edibles, use caution! Start small. Edible cannabis is much stronger, works differently, and lasts longer than vaporized or smoked marijuana.
This ABV oil is ideal for making ABV edibles or already vaped bud recipes. Here’s my quick ABV coconut oil recipe:
Quick ABV Coconut Oil Recipe
You do NOT need to decarboxylate already vaporized cannabis. It is fully decarboxylated during the vaporization process.
- 1-2 oz ABV weed (already vaped weed)
- Melted coconut oil – Enough to thoroughly saturate the cannabis
- Water (optional) – The water can be separated & removed later – this adds an extra step – I do it for taste and because straining it is easier
- Organic sunflower lecithin (optional) – I recommend NOT adding lecithin until after you’ve separated the oil from the water
- Add ABV to the crock pot
- Add enough melted coconut oil to completely saturate the vaped weed, until it looks kind of like greasy ground meat
- Add water if using
- Cook for two hours on low – stir occasionally
- Strain with cheesecloth
If Adding Water
- Place strained mixture in the refrigerator.
- The coconut oil with separate and rise to the top. It will harden. You can then break the hard ABV coconut oil and discard the dirty water.
I don’t add water when I make ABV oil in the magical butter machine, but the magical butter machine is a more effective method than the crock pot method.
Dosing of ABV Coconut Oil – USE CAUTION
Use caution with edibles. Consuming cannabis by eating it is more potent than smoking or vaporizing. Also, the effects may differ. I feel much more cognitive effects from edibles than I do with my vaporizer.
It’s impossible to tell how strong your ABV coconut oil is without testing it. It’s impossible to say how much of the cannabinoids were consumed during the initial vaporization.
I start testing doses with 0.25 to 0.5 teaspoons of oil per dose.
If you’re using fresh weed to make your cannabis oil, you can calculate your approximate dosage with this THC calculator.
Using ABV Coconut Oil in Recipes
You can use your ABV coconut oil to replace butter or another oil in any recipe.
Try adding it to savory pasta dishes or spreading it on toast with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Just use caution with heat. You don’t want to use it to fry up onions. High heat will destroy the medication. Instead, mix in your dose with the hot onions at the end of cooking.
Looking for an ABV Butter Recipe?
Simply switch the coconut oil out for butter in this recipe. The process is exactly the same.
What is ABV Weed?
ABV stands for “already been vaporized”. It’s the used marijuana that you remove from the vaporizer after vaporizing. ABV is also referred to as vaporizer poo and AVB – already vaporized bud.

What is ABV Coconut Oil?
ABV coconut oil is medicated cannabis coconut oil made from ABV weed. When you cook coconut oil and ABV together, the remaining cannabinoids leave the plant material and infuse the coconut oil, resulting in ABV coconut oil. You can use this vaped weed coconut oil in edibles, or to make coconut oil ABV capsules.
Why should I use ABV?
To save money – That’s it. You can use ABV weed to make ABV coconut oil to use in ABV recipes.
When you vaporize medical marijuana, the heat only strips some of the medication from the plant material, but not all of it. There are cannabinoids remaining in vaporized plant material. The vaporized remnants can be used to make cannabis coconut oil, aka ABV oil.

How does ABV oil compare to fresh cannabis coconut oil?
Cannabis oil is better made from fresh weed. It tastes better and it’s more potent.
Fresh cannabis coconut oil contains the full kaleidoscope of cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant. All of these components act together like an orchestra to produce cannabis’s medical effects.
When you vaporize cannabis you use up some of these components.
That means ABV oil is missing some of the components that research shows are medically relevant.
BUT – if you’re limited on access to marijuana (like many patients because of the exorbitant costs and lack of medical coverage) then you’re more inclined to utilize every scrap of medication.
To be honest, if I had unlimited amounts of cannabis, I would not make ABV coconut oil. In my utopia, I’m a pot farmer, and I only make cannabis coconut oil from the freshest and highest quality plants.
BUT, in real life, cultivation isn’t allowed in NJ. And medical marijuana is cost prohibitive, so ABV coconut oil is part of my current reality. I’m grateful that I have any access at all, too many patients still don’t.
Why use coconut oil with weed?
Cannabinoids only bind to fat, they cannot bind to water. If you soak weed in water or even cook it in water, and then drink the water, you will not experience any effects—fat must be present.
The cannabinoids can only be extracted with a fat (like olive oil, butter, or whole milk), or an alcohol (like Everclear or vegetable glycerin).
Coconut oil offers a variety of health benefits on its own, making it popular for medical marijuana patients who consume edibles on a regular basis.
However anyone with serious digestive issues should use carefully (this means you my friends suffering from Chron’s or ulcerative colitis), for some, coconut oil can have a laxative effect. If coconut oil does not agree with you, use butter or olive oil instead. Or try a tincture.
Does health insurance cover medical marijuana?
Nope, health insurance does not cover medical marijuana at all. It doesn’t matter how great your health insurance plan is, they don’t have to pay for MMJ. This is one of the worst parts of being an MMJ patient. You can get deadly opiates and valium for free, but because of the DEA’s bogus stance, no health insurance company is required to cover it.
The DEA continues to claim that medical marijuana has absolutely “no medical benefit”. Even though countless research studies, thousands of doctors & scientists, and millions of patients disprove that claim and even though the federal government owns a patent on cannabis stating it DOES have a medical benefit.
It doesn’t matter if 100 doctors recommend medical marijuana. And it doesn’t matter if cannabis is the only thing keeping your baby alive. The DEA doesn’t care and the insurance companies don’t care. They are not required to cover it.
I get emails every day from patients who are suffering and are desperate for help and guidance. If the state government doesn’t want to require the insurance to pay for it -fine. But, at least allow us to grow it in our homes. At least allow us to start charity organizations where we can grow for the dying & suffering. Most patients simply can’t afford the insane costs. The lack of compassion reflected in the law disgusts me.
It’s fascinating how before MMJ, the insurance companies paid for endless bottles of opiates, valium, Lyrica with no complaint.
[Fact: Statistics prove that medical marijuana is saving the government MILLIONS of dollars by reducing prescription drug use. Read about it on Huffington Post.]
