How to Make Your Own Cannabis Capsules

How to Make Your Own Cannabis Capsules

Cannabis capsules are an easy, discreet, and super effective way to medicate. Taking a pill blends more seamlessly into most people’s daily routine than smoking, vaporizing, or eating an edible.

Making cannabis capsules at home is a simple way to ensure you’re ingesting clean medicine that’s created to suit your individual needs.

A daily low-dose of cannabinoids can help ease a wide variety of ailments, and when you’re treating a chronic disorder it’s important to consistently flood your body with healing cannabinoids.

There are two routes to take when making your own capsules — infused oil or decarboxylated dry cannabis flower.

Some prefer to have an oil base because raw cannabis can be slightly harder for sensitive stomachs to digest. But if you’re looking for speed and ease, raw flower is the way to go and it’s just as effective.

 To determine potency, let’s do some quick math:

We will be using “0” size capsules which can hold approximately 0.5 grams (weight).

For calculating the decarbed flower capsules, we’re going to assume the material used is approximately 5% THC. This means there is 50 mg of THC for every 1 gram (weight) of plant material. Each pill capsule holds about 0.1 gram (weight) of plant material which is approximately 5 mg of activated THC. By those calculations, each decarbed flower capsule will contain approximately 5 mg of THC.

For the oil-based capsules, you can adjust the potency based on how much cannabis you infuse into the oil. I’ve laid out two options below and if you’d like a stronger pill, simply infuse more flower in the oil. As mentioned above, a size 0 capsule will hold about 0.4 gram (weight), but we will aim to fill the capsule to about 80% of its capacity (400 mg / 0.4 gram in weight which is equal to 0.4 ml in volume).

For the sake of consistency, we will assume that the average gram of cannabis contains 50 mg of THC.

7 grams of cannabis into ¼ cup oil: (7 grams x 50mg THC = 350mg of THC) *¼ cup = 62.5 mL

— 350mg divided by 62.5 mL = 5.6 mg per mL

— 5.6 mg THC per mL x 0.4 mL (per capsule) = 2.24 mg THC

14 grams of cannabis into ¼ cup oil: (14 grams x 50mg THC = 700mg of THC) *¼ cup = 62.5 mL

— 700mg divided by 62.5 mL = 11.2 mg per mL

— 11.2 mg THC per mL x 0.4 mL (per capsule) = 4.48 mg THC 


If you’d like a capsule with an infused-oil base, begin by making cannabis-infused oil — follow these recipes to make homemade oil with coconut oil or olive oil.

If you’d like raw herbs, begin by preheating your oven to 220 degrees Fahrenheit. While the oven is preheating, grind up your cannabis finely by herb grinder, coffee grinder, or mortar and pestle. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread your cannabis crumble evenly on top. Bake for about 60 minutes being sure the oven doesn’t rise above 250 degrees Fahrenheit.

If you’re looking for an extra punch of herbal healing in either recipe, try adding some of the following herbs into the canna-oil or simply mix them with your post-decarbed cannabis powder:

For Calming Sleep Capsules add powdered valerian root, skullcap, lemon balm, or hop flower.

Also for Nutritious Superfood Capsules add spirulina, chlorella, turmeric.

and For Energizing Daytime Capsules add gingko root, astragalus, or maca root.


After the cannabis is decarbed or the oil is infused, it’s time to fill the capsules. Using a capsule machine shortens this process to 5 minutes or less, but it’s possible to fill them without it. I would definitely recommend a machine, they are less than $20 and save a lot of money in the long run if you consistently make a variety of herbal capsules.

Begin by separating the tops and bottoms of the capsules (the bottoms are the longer sides). Place the bottom half of the capsules in the base of the capsule machine.

If you chose the dry herb capsules, pour your herbal mixture into the pill maker. You can do straight cannabis, but I decided to mix some valerian root and nettle into mine for that extra nutritious oomph.

Use a card to evenly spread the herbs across the capsule openings. Use the tampering tool included with the capsule kit to gently press the herbs down, and add some more if there’s room. Fill the lid of the capsule machine with the capsule tops and place on the device. Remove the machine from its stand and press down with both hands until the capsules are joined together. Lift, remove the filled capsules, and voila!

further,If you chose the oil-based capsules, use a syringe or dropper to carefully fill the bottoms of the capsules. (Note: if you’re using coconut oil it needs to be warmed in order to remain viscous and make the filling process easier, however, if the oil is too warm it can melt the capsules so it’s important to stay in that neutral temperature zone). Once the capsules are filled, place the tops of the capsules into the lid of the machine and place on the device. Move the machine off its stand and press down on the top of the machine with both hands. Lift, remove the filled capsules, and you have some golden cannabis capsules!

45% of Americans Say They Have Tried Marijuana

Gallup

45% of Americans Say They Have Tried Marijuana

A poll conducted by the research-based consulting company Gallup finds that 45% of Americans say they have tried marijuana on at least one occasion. When Gallup presented the same question to Americans in 1969, only 4% of those surveyed said they had tried pot.

Gallup’s study on “American’s consumption habits” is based on telephone interviews conducted on July 5-9 with a random sample of 1,021 adults. However, the results from the marijuana-related questions are based on responses from approximately 500 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.

12% of Americans Enjoy Marijuana Regularly

When Gallup first explored “marijuana usage and experimentation” by Americans in 2013, they found that 7% of those surveyed consumed marijuana with regularity. Since 2013, that figure has jumped to 12%.

Demographic distinctions suggest that Generation Xers and Baby Boomers are more likely to have tried marijuana than Millennials, despite the fact that Millennial-aged adults consume marijuana regularity at a much higher rate.

Poland Legalizes Medical Marijuana

Poland Legalizes Medical Marijuana

Yesterday, President Duda signed Poland’s medical cannabis bill into law, making Poland the latest European Union member country to permit the use of medical marijuana.

Cannabis reform in Poland has moved fast and steady in the last couple of months.

Near the end of June, a bill to allow medical marijuana in the European nation was overwhelmingly voted forward by Poland’s Lower House of Parliament. The proposed legislation had incredible support with 440 in favour and 2 against.

Poland Legalizes Medical Marijuana

In the first week of July, the nation’s Health Care Committee gave their recommendation for legalization to move forward. This approval effectively paved the way to the office of President Andrzej Duda who signed the bill into law on July 20th.

Pharmacists in the Polish nation will soon be able to dispense cannabis, once it is available by import, to those with a doctor’s prescription. Products that will be available in Poland include raw cannabis, tinctures, resin, and other extracts.

Qualifying conditions will include chronic pain, nausea and vomiting from cancer treatment, multiple sclerosis, and drug resistant epilepsy, but there are no specific conditions laid out in the legislation. This intentional open-endedness allows doctors to prescribe cannabis based on new research that comes out. At this time, however, patients will not be refunded for the purchase of cannabis.

Poland Legalizes Medical Marijuana

Initially, the legislation put forth for medical marijuana was that patients would be able to cultivate their own, but amendments to the bill made the import of raw cannabis the status quo, with doctors and pharmacists as the drug’s gatekeepers. There were also additional amendments stipulating that veterinarians will not be allowed to prescribe cannabis.

The bill effectively goes into law in October and a cannabis institute is being set up to educate doctors, pharmacists, and the public on how to move forward.

 

“We sent [a to-do list]to the government to let them know what they need to prepare,” said MP Piotr Liroy-Marzec in an interview this morning with Marijuana.com.

Liroy-Marzec is one of the authors of the bill and arguably its greatest champion. “The Polish Institute of Cannabis will be starting right now. Education on cannabis is what Poland needs, for the doctors, judges, and pharmacists.”

Liroy-Marzec is still fighting for domestic cultivation, which he feels is an important step, but for the moment, importing cannabis will be the priority for patients who need it.

 

Liroy-Marzec is thrilled that Poland now has legal medical cannabis legislation. He added that the next steps for him are to convince the government that domestic cultivation is necessary. He is hoping that in a few years, they may even consider the decriminalization of adult-use cannabis as well.

 

For the moment, Liroy-Marzec and the Polish nation are focusing on the win of the day, which is medical marijuana for those in need. Not a bad win at all.

What Wounded Veterans Need: Medical Marijuana

The American Legion, representing millions of wartime vets, calls on Trump to loosen federal restrictions on medical marijuana research to help those suffering from PTSD, TBI, opioid abuse, and more.

After 16 years of war in Afghanistan and Iraq, many Americans view post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, and traumatic brain injury, or TBI, as the “signature” wounds of these conflicts. The Department of Veterans Affairs has spent billions of dollars to better understand the symptoms, effects, and treatments for these injuries. But despite advances in diagnostics and interventions in a complex constellation of physical, emotional, behavioral and cognitive defects, TBI and PTSD remain leading causes of death and disability within the veteran community.

There is something else the U.S. can do for suffering veterans: research medical marijuana.

Many Afghanistan and Iraq veterans have contacted the American Legion to relay their personal stories about the efficacy of cannabis in significantly improving their quality of life by enabling sleep, decreasing the prevalence of night terrors, mitigating hyper-alertness, reducing chronic pain, and more. This is why the 2.2 million members of the American Legion are calling on the Trump administration to instruct the Drug Enforcement Agency to change how it classifies cannabis, release the monopoly on cultivation for research purposes, and immediately allow highly-regulated privately-funded medical marijuana production operations in the United States to enable safe and efficient cannabis drug development research.

Currently, medical researchers face onerous Food and Drug Administration, Drug Enforcement Administration, and National Institute on Drug Abuse bureaucratic hurdles to conducting research. Additionally, due to cannabis’ classification, all researchers must source their cannabis from the University of Mississippi – who holds a monopoly on producing the drug for federally-sanctioned research.

The opioid epidemic that continues to grip veterans is yet another reason to ease the federal government’s outdated attitude toward America’s marijuana supply. The Trump administration should lead a new effort to combat opioid abuse, and it should include the elimination of barriers to medical research on cannabis. The result, potentially, could provide a non-addictive solution to the most common debilitating conditions our veterans— and others in society— face, including chronic pain, PTSD, and TBI.

For nearly 90 years, the federal government has deliberately hindered medical research into therapeutic aspects of cannabis, and veterans struggling with PTSD and TBI today are suffering because of this misguided policy. Cannabis, which has been used by humans for food, oil, textiles, medicine, and religious purposes since at least 6,000 BCE, has suffered an image problem over the past century starting with America’s first drug czar Prohibition Agent Harry J. Anslinger’s race-baiting demonization of the drug during the Great Depression.

Today, despite considerable evidence to the contrary, the U.S. persists in listing cannabis alongside heroin, LSD, and ecstasy, as a Schedule I substance with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. By comparison, many of the highly addictive medications frequently prescribed to veterans are a direct pathway to the abuse of cocaine derivatives, methamphetamine, methadone, Demerol, oxycodone and, fentanyl that are classified as Schedule II drugs. These widely over-prescribed, powerful, and dangerous substances are currently fueling today’s opioid and heroin epidemics in America.

Cannabis’ Schedule I listing is disingenuous given the fact that the federal government cannot produce any research or evidence justifying its classification – which significantly hampers medical research into the therapeutic aspects of the drug. It’s a classic Catch-22.

The Legion is asking Congress to amend legislation to remove marijuana from Schedule I and reclassify it in a category that, at a minimum, will recognize cannabis as a drug with potential medical value.

A recent comprehensive study by the Committee on the Health Effects of Marijuana at the National

Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine found that there is, “conclusive or substantial evidence that cannabis or cannabinoids are effective for the treatment” of chronic pain, reducing nausea and vomiting during chemotherapy, and lowering spasticity in multiple sclerosis sufferers, that there is “moderate evidence” that cannabis is effective in treating sleep apnea, fibromyalgia, and chronic pain, and “limited evidence” that cannabis improves symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder and creates better outcomes after traumatic brain injury.

We need to know more.  With 20 veterans committing suicide every day, we cannot afford to delay research into this promising potential solution.

To date, more than 28 states have legalized cannabis for the treatment of medical conditions, and this April, Reps. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., and Darren Soto, D-Fla., introduced bipartisan legislation in the House to make marijuana a Schedule III drug – removing significant hurdles currently hindering medical research.

With 90 percent of Americans supporting legalization of medical marijuana today, it is time for Congress to act so that scientists may conduct advanced research into cannabis and PTSD/TBI and enable the American people to have a fact-based adult discussion about the therapeutic value of cannabis. Inevitably, cannabis will become a federally endorsed medical treatment for pain, epilepsy and a variety of other disorders. The only question is will this administration lead? Our veterans suffering from PTSD and TBI lives depend on it.
