DIY THC Pills: A Step-by-Step Guide to Homemade Cannabis Capsules


Have you ever wanted to enjoy the benefits of marijuana discreetly and without the hassle of smoking or vaping? Making your own THC pills can be a convenient and efficient way to consume cannabis. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the process of creating homemade THC pills using easily accessible ingredients and equipment.

Ingredients and Equipment:

Before we get started, here’s what you’ll need:

  • Olive or vegetable oil
  • Marijuana (desired amount)
  • Grinder (for finely grinding the marijuana)
  • Heat source (stove or hot plate)
  • Bowl (for grinding and mixing)
  • Empty pill capsules (easily available online or at health stores)
  • Small spoon

Step 1: Preparing Your Marijuana

Start by grinding your marijuana to a fine consistency using a grinder. The finer the grind, the better your THC extraction will be. Make sure to remove any stems or seeds, as they can affect the quality of your THC pills.

Step 2: Decarboxylation

Decarboxylation is the process of heating cannabis to activate its psychoactive compounds. In a well-ventilated area, heat your finely ground marijuana in a bowl on a heat source (stove or hot plate) at around 220°F (105°C) for about 30-45 minutes. This will convert non-psychoactive THCA into THC, making your pills potent.

Step 3: Infusing the Oil

In a separate container, heat your chosen oil (olive or vegetable oil) on low heat. Slowly add the decarboxylated marijuana to the oil and let it simmer for about 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally. This process will extract the THC from the cannabis and infuse it into the oil. Be careful not to overheat or burn the oil, as it can degrade the THC.

Step 4: Straining

Once your oil is infused with THC, strain it through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth into a clean container. This will remove any remaining plant material, leaving you with THC-infused oil.

Step 5: Filling the Capsules

Using a small spoon or a dropper, carefully fill your empty pill capsules with the THC-infused oil. Be cautious not to overfill or spill the oil, as it can be messy.

Step 6: Sealing the Capsules

After filling the capsules, put the two halves together to seal them. Ensure they are securely closed to prevent any leaks.

Step 7: Storage

Store your homemade THC pills in a cool, dark place, preferably in an airtight container. Keep them out of reach of children and pets.


Remember that the potency of your homemade THC pills will depend on the strength of your marijuana and the amount used. It’s crucial to start with a low dosage and gradually increase it as needed to avoid overconsumption.


Creating your own THC pills at home can be a fun and rewarding way to enjoy the benefits of cannabis discreetly. Just follow these steps carefully, and always consume responsibly, keeping local laws and regulations in mind. Enjoy your homemade THC capsules responsibly and in moderation.
