Cannabis-Infused Sichuan Chili Oil Recipe



  • 3.5g cannabis (adjust the amount to your preferred potency)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 star anise
  • 1 tbsp sichuan peppercorn
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 cup canola (can substitute for other neutral oils)
  • 1/3 cup chili flakes, preferably spicy ones from your local Asian market


  1. Decarb cannabis on A1 cycle in the Ardent FX.
  2. Add all other ingredients in the Ardent and start the infuse cycle. Infuse for at least 45mins.
  3. Once infused, dump all ingredients and infused oil in a small pot with thermometer. Heat to 150-170 until golden brown. ~15-20mins.
  4. Once aromatics are golden brown, heat oil up to 220. Remove from heat and strain hot oil over chili flakes. Stir to combine.

Wendy's pro tip: Keep the fried aromatic bits to put on top of toasts or grind up to add to chili sauce for extra flavor and crispiness.
