Pot butter is famous, but it isn’t the healthiest option when you’re looking to medicate. Butter certainly isn’t suitable for several dietary restrictions that can be important to patients or those who choose a vegan diet. This vegan Organic Medicated Coconut Oil tastes fantastic in many recipes like 420 heath shakes, any number of deserts or even curries! This oil can also be used in beauty products.
There are many dietary health benefits to consuming coconut oil. Do yourself a favor and use your time medicating to get your dose of coconut oil into your diet!
Nearly 50 percent of the fat in coconut oil is of a type rarely found in nature called lauric acid, a “miracle” compound because of its unique health promoting properties. Your body converts lauric acid into monolaurin, which has anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-protozoa properties. (6)
Coconut oil is also nature’s richest source of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), also called medium-chain triglycerides or MCTs. By contrast, most common vegetable or seed oils are comprised of long chain fatty acids (LCFAs), also known as long-chain triglycerides or LCTs.
LCTs are large molecules, so they are difficult for your body to break down and are predominantly stored as fat.
But MCTs (7) , being smaller, are easily digested and immediately burned by your liver for energy — like carbohydrates, but without the insulin spike. MCTs actually boost your metabolism and help your body use fat for energy, as opposed to storing it, so it can actually help you become leaner.
Back in the 1940s, farmers discovered this effect accidentally when they tried using inexpensive coconut oil to fatten their livestock.
It didn’t work!
Instead, coconut oil made the animals lean, active and hungry.
Coconut oil has actually been shown to help optimize body weight, which can dramatically reduce your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes (8). Besides weight loss, boosting your metabolic rate will improve your energy, accelerate healing and improve your overall immune function.
And several studies have now shown that MCTs can enhance physical or athletic performance.(9)
And finally, as we have already discussed, coconut oil is incedibly good for your heart. The truth is this: it is unsaturated fats that are primarily involved in heart disease and too much sugar and processed foods, not the naturally occurring saturated fats, as you have been led to believe. (10)

1 Cup Organic Coconut Oil for every 1/2 oz of Marijuana.
Marijuana goes into the vitamix or food processor.
This is about the right consistency. Don’t grind your herb too fine, it will be hard to strain the plant material through your strainer.
Coconut oil goes into the slow-cooker on low for 20 minutes.
Add the ground marijuana bud to the slow cooker and ensure the marijuana is completely submerged in the oil. Cook covered on low for four hours, stirring every half hour. Turn off the slow cooker and allow oil to cool for 45 minutes.
Strain the plant matter from the oil using a rubber spatula and fine mesh strainer. Do not discard plant material, you can bake it into many recipes for an amazing medicated high!
Store the amazing coconut oil in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to six weeks.
