You’ve recently used your latest batch of cannaoil for several delicious recipes. Now, there are only a few tablespoons left, and you don’t know what else to do with your remaining cannaoil.
Even if you only have a tiny bit left, there are many things that you can do with the last of your precious cannaoil. You actually have several options to choose from.
Note: Making your own home-craft and culinary infusions couldn’t be easier with the LĒVO home infuser. From oils to butter, creams to crafts, culinary to confectionary- LĒVO has you covered.
Storing Leftover Cannaoil
Cannaoil is an incredibly versatile ingredient. You can use it in edible recipes, for skincare regimens, and even for household cleaning items. If you can’t quite choose what you want to do with your remaining infused ingredient, it will refrigerate or freeze well- holding steady until you need it.
If you want to delay your decision, you can always put your cannaoil in the refrigerator. At refrigerator temperature, your cannaoil can store for up to two months. Storing your cannaoil in the refrigerator makes great sense. It is a (usually) dark environment where the light won’t ruin your oil.
The temperature is stable so that the oil won’t congeal and melt repeatedly. Just make sure you label the container as infused cannaoil, so it isn’t confused with regular oil.
Another option is to freeze your cannaoil. Put the oil in a dark, non-glass container and put it in the freezer. You can leave it in there for months, and you might even forget about it.
The next time you make infused oil with your infusion machine, you can melt the leftover cannaoil and add it to the new batch. You won’t notice a difference in the consistency or flavor. The freezer will preserve the cannabinoids and terpenes so the oil will not lose any of its original medicinal effects.
When you are ready to use your refrigerated or frozen cannaoil, heat the glass jar up a shallow in a pot of water, on the stovetop. Make sure to only heat it just enough to liquefy it.
If you want to use your leftover cannaoil without freezing or refrigerating, here are some other options.
Other Recipe Options
Try using your cannaoil as a wood polisher. Believe it or not, the cannabinoids will protect the wood, and with a little polishing, you will notice a bright sheen on your wood. Just a little dab on a polishing towel is enough.
You can always cook with your cannaoil. Just about anything that you bake in the oven that calls for oil, you can substitute cannaoil. Drizzle your finished food with cannaoil to protect the THC from the heat of frying. If you don’t want to have the full effects of the cannaoil in certain items you cook, consider diluting the cannaoil with some regular cooking oil.
You can use olive oil, vegetable, or canola oil to dilute your cannaoil. Another option would be to mix it with strongly flavored oil, such as sesame seed oil. Here’s some more information on how long infused oils last.
You can also make a classic oil and vinegar salad dressing. The flavor of the herb in the cannaoil goes extremely well with salads. You can dilute the cannaoil with regular oil if you don’t want the salad dressing to be too strong.
Make a whole batch of salad dressing and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for months. You will have your go-to salad dressing ready for any salad that you might make. Plus, you can use your salad dressing for dipping your chicken tenders in, or for putting on a special sandwich.
Another option is to use your leftover cannaoil to make a dessert topping. You can make a chocolate sauce with your leftover cannaoil that will go great on ice cream. You can dunk your cookies in it if you’d like. Use your chocolate sauce in baking when you want a little more chocolate flavor. Or you can put your chocolate sauce in a glass of milk to make a lovely glass of chocolate milk.
Here is a quick and simple recipe to make a chocolate sauce using your leftover cannaoil.
Cannabis Chocolate Sauce
- 237 mL heavy cream
- 2 tbsps cannaoil
- 120 grams quality dark chocolate, broken into small pieces
- Heat some water in a small saucepan till it reaches a steady simmer.
- Place a heatproof bowl on top of the saucepan, allowing the steam from the water bath to heat it.
- Place the cannaoil and cream into the bowl, stirring constantly to avoid burning.
- Once the cannaoil has melted, add in the chocolate. Keep stirring until the chocolate has melted completely and you have a smooth mixture with no lumps.
- This will go great drizzled on ice cream or even over a finished NY cheesecake! When you’re ready to share with the world just what you’ve created: @LEVO_Oil and be sure to tag it as #LEVOmade.
