Dear Cheri

I wondering if you can make cannabis capsules from infused coconut oil and if so how do I calculate the dosage?  I do have your dosage calculators, but I am not sure which one would be best for capsules.  Thank you.

Yes. You absolutely can used infused coconut oil to make cannabis capsules.  However I will put in the disclaimer that oil capsules are notorious for leaking, so I recommend storing the capsules in the fridge where the coconut oil will solidify.  If anyone has figured out the secret to a leakproof at room temperature cannabis capsule, please share in the comments below.

Dosing for Cannabis Capsules

When it comes to dosing, you mentioned you had my calculators (for those that don't they are just $5.00, or I have a free dosing class at Cannademy that teaches you the process with a regular calculator).  Use the regular dosing calculator that you use when making edibles with an infusion.  

Follow the steps as usual.  The only difference with cannabis capsules is in the field that asks you the number of servings.  You will want to calculate a per capsule dose instead of a per serving dose, but the difference is just semantics.  Fill out the "servings" field with the number of capsules you made, and the calculator will give you the per capsule dose.  Simple!

  • Hi. I use MCT infused oil for my capsules. I make sure they “click” closed when putting tops on. I have very little leakage with my capsules , usually making about 50 at a time and storing in a small glass bottle with a bit of cotton pad on bottom for absorption if there is any leakage.
