Hi, I'm Logan. I just got started making my own infused oil, gummies and joint balm. I don't grow, although I used to years ago. One question at this point. Where should I store the infused oil? I just made it this afternoon and have it in the fridge at the moment.

Hey Logan, nice to have you mang! To your question, depending on what kind of oil it is, they way I usually go is wherever you stored it before you infused it is probably fine (obviously keep it safe from little fingers and/or pets). I have some infused coconut oil that sits beside my coffee maker on the counter which I glob into my coffee every morn. It stays nice and soft, but not liquid so it's great. I find coconut oil in the fridge gets too hard and you need a frickin ice pick to chip it out, lol. But a rule of thumb storing any oil is keep it cool, and in the dark. Oil definitely spoils, especially exposed to light, and I would imagine infusing it with more stuff, whatever that might be, would only lessen its lifespan. I just go through mine fast enough that it doesn't have the chance  to go bad though ?.

@canna_educator_ might be of more assistance here tho  - he is the go-to guy for all things infused and edible.

And about you not growing anymore... if you spend enough time around here, you will be. You.. will be.... ? 

ywb

Welcome to Percys Logan.  I store my butter and oil in the fridge but like TG said the coconut oil gets hard so im curious myself about how to store it.

Sativa to change the things I can, Indica to accept the things I can’t.

Hi Logan, welcome and good to have you here mate. I’m also fairly new around here. Right now I don’t work with edibles at the moment, more of a whole herb grower, so can’t offer any assistance on that but just wanted to say hello and hope you become a regular around here.

Welcome, it’s nice to meet you, man.

I store my infused coconut oil in the fridge too in a sterile (boiled) jar and it keeps for over 6 months. Only boiled spoons touch that oil. For convenience I have a small jar in which we can stick regular spoons which haven’t been boiled, this one we sometimes leave out of the fridge and carry with us when travelling, etc. As mentioned, when kept in the fridge the consistency is not very convenient, so I usually pour some of the oil on the top of hot food (specially deserts) or beverage or just heat the spoon with some oil straight on the stove for a few seconds.

I have my base oil from the store in a dark, cool pantry. I put the infused oil in the fridge. I have the balm in the bathroom in a lower, dark drawer. The balm is not too bad to get out because it is soft and once it hits my hands and joints it quickly goes to liquid.  The fridge stuff is hard as a rock and hard to dig out. If I can leave my infused oil in a dark cook cabinet where my regular oil is that would work.

I think that would work, but again, I go through mine pretty fast.  I personally have never had any go rancid on me but, do be cautious if it starts smelling/looking weird, lol. ?

@irish-johnny I can post the three recipes I made from canna_educator's instructions. I use a concentrate "RSO" in the syringe. The product I got at the cannabis store is "Discovery Garden - dgcannabis.com". For the infused oil I used the intire syringe of 1 g in three cups of oil. I'll post the recipes in another post.

@templegrower About growing. I don't have a real good place to do it and I just don't feel like messing with it again. Too easy to buy the RSO :0
