Cannabis experts claim that mixing this plant with a coconut oil will make it more bio available, meaning increased levels of absorption and utilization of its nutrients.
The high content of saturated fats from the coconut oil will make the extraction of THC more effective. Butter or other oils can also help the absorption of cannabinoids, but the coconut oil does a much better job.
Marijuana is known to have medicinal benefits, which is now acknowledged by the authorities.
Cannabis has been used for hundreds of years, for various purposes. Most of the uses were healing medical problems like depression, menstrual pain, insomnia, inflammation, anxiety, swelling and many more.

For medical purposes, the easiest and most effective way is to infuse the cannabis in virgin coconut oil.

Preparation and use of the Cannabis Coconut oil
The cannabis and coconut oil combined are a potent remedy which can be taken with food, as a capsule or used externally.
Few drops of medicinal marijuana and half a teaspoon of coconut oil will increase the effectiveness of the remedy.
How to prepare Cannabis Coconut Oil? For every ounce of coconut oil, use one gram of de-carboxylate marijuana. Mix the crushed marijuana with the coconut oil in a glass jar, then cover it with a lid, seal it well and place it in a pan filled with water. Heat the water slowly, then keep it for 60 minutes on a level below boiling. This will keep the oil from overheating and burning.
Strain the mixture in order to remove the solid parts and squeeze all the juice from the cannabis. You can use cheesecloth for this.
When the procedure is finished and the cannabis coconut oil is prepared, use it like that, with other foods or as a lotion. Also, you can use it for cooking, but for temperatures below 315 F because this is the point of boiling of the active elements in marijuana. Heating the oil on temperatures higher than 315 F will destroy all of its positive effects.
