I’ve made cannabis oil using olive oil for sublingual use. Does anyone know of a taste hack to make the oil more palatable? It’s not horrible but it would be nice if it were a little tastier. Thanks for your help!
I use coconut oil
Maybe some mint extract? Or any food flavoring extract you like.
Probably only a few drops to get a better taste.
bad taste can come from plant material in the oil. what’s your method for infusion?
Honey. I infuse lots of mediums. Honey best taste. Plus just put in coffee or tea. I only cook with the other oils or make gummies…etc. to take straight i suggest honey infusion.
If you have access to high proof ethanol you can do a cold extraction which will cut down on the undesirable compounds
Here is an ethanol extraction and what i filtered it with and the end product freezer jam
There is little “plant” taste in the simple syrup i infused and covers up when flavored
Very little of the cannabis flavor comes through

Take that unpalatable oil and put it into size 00 gelcaps, and swallow it. No taste.
Thank you for that idea!
I use the Levo oil machine.
Thanks for this link! Incredibly helpful!
Thanks for all of that information and the pictures. I use the Levo oil machine and I don’t think you can use alcohol in it. But nice suggestion all the same!
I did think of adding some extract! Thanks for the suggestion!
Was thinking Cinnamon oil would be nice. Lingers a long time on your palate.
