Put the lid on the jar, seal it well and put it in a pan full of water. Slowly heat the water and keep it on a below boiling level for 60 minutes.
In this way you will keep the oil safe from overheating.
Next, use a strainer to strain the mixture to eliminate the solid elements. Make sure to squeeze the juice from the cannabis. Some people use cheesecloth to strain the mixture properly.

Feel free to cook with this treated oil, only when the temperature is lower than 315 F. That is the temperature of the point of boiling of the active compound of marijuana. Obviously, if you use higher temperatures the effects will be gone.
