    I own a MFLB and I'm interested in trying oil. The only problem is that it's difficult to get wax where I'm from. So what I want to try is simmering bud in coconut oil and vaping the oil. However, would this work? Is it dangerous to vape coconut/cannabis oil?

    Unrefined coconut oil has a smoke point of 350F. So I don't think it's able to be vaporized, regardless of safety.

    I would really not do that, if you really want to process your grass make some BHO or something. It can seem intimidating but its really not that hard.

    Yeah... don't do that.

    Instead look up QWISO methods, I think that'd be your safest bet.

    With QWISO, and I don't know specifics, you use Isopropyl (fancy word for rubbing alcohol) to extract oils from herb. It can yield very good results if you're careful and is infinitely safer than trying to smoke cooking oil.

    When cannabis and cooking oil meet, it's usually to bond thc to a fat/lipid for digestion. With QWISO, wax, etc. the general idea is always to get the thc, cbd, and cannabinoid by itself, no fats/lipids, and ideally, no other solvent.

    If you get 99% alcohol, some cheese cloth, and a nice big plate to spread the surface area when you're evaporating, you can probably accomplish a QWISO run with about the same effort as trying to saute your bud.

    Plus I would think the mflb would prefer more solid concentrate like wax instead of runny oil.

    There's a concentrate tray available now from MF that allows the use of all kinds of concentrates in the MFLB.

    people throughout time have smoked and vaped just about every substance on the planet.

    there are many things that are completely safe for us to ingest, that are not safe for us to inhale. Oils and fats cause lipid pneumonia.

    Cannabis oleoresin is not a lipid. Some concentrates do contain plant waxes, and frequent consumers should seek out concentrates that do not.

    I take responsibility for my part in perpetuating this misnomer by referring to my oil stash and my oil rig as such.

    Winterize and vape on. Save the coconut oil for food.
