Levo Oil Infuser Review: A Love Story

When I fall in love, I fall hard and I fall fast.

After the farmer and I had our first date, I moved out of my house on the commune into his house on the commune the next day. (To be fair… he had the nicest house on the commune… it had doors!)

When I hear that people have been dating for months and haven’t said “I love you” yet, I get confused. In my mind, if it wasn’t love at first sight, it wasn’t going to be love. So I can’t imagine being with anyone for months without falling in love. It kind of seems like a waste of life to me.

I’m not a relationship/love coach, so this isn’t a professional opinion, I just wanted to give you an insight into the way my mind works when it comes to love.

Because I am in LOVE with the Levo Oil Infuser. I’m sure I’ll get some troll mail about how it’s bad to be in love with an object, but I care not.

Because when you’re in love, you give fewer fucks. It’s one of the perks.

And I hesitated to write about a device this way, but when I brainstormed for this review the word “love” came up so many times that I knew I wasn’t going to get around using it.

Levo Oil Infuser Review

You guys probably know that I’d never review something I didn’t like, but love is a really strong word.

   I like that the Nova is an easy way to effectively decarboxylate my cannabis.

   I like that the tCheck keeps me from getting wiped out by an infused grilled cheese ever again.

   I like that the Firefly 2 came from the future to make microdosing so simple and tasty.

But… you guys… I LOVE the Levo.Levo Oil Infuser

My husband (that guy from the commune) has pointed out how bizarre my relationship with the thing is becoming… It’s not like he doesn’t have the evidence:

  • I’ll go full on minimalist and won’t let anyone leave anything on the counter, but the Levo stays because it’s too gorgeous.
  • I wipe fingerprints off of it every day, while my toddler has oatmeal in her dreadlock.
  • It’s the only thing I have EVER saved the box for.
  • I have a special drawer dedicated to its accessories.

And yeah, all of that just sounds like grownup stuff (aside from the oatmeal dreadlock).

But do you know what’s not grown up stuff?

  • Patting my Levo on the “head” for a job well done every time I see it and I don’t think anyone else is around.
  • Introducing people to it as soon as they step in my house.
  • Keeping a batch of infused honey in the machine for 3 days because I LOVED that I could just wander up, press a button and pour infused honey it directly into my tea.

cannabis infused honeyIt’s true. The Levo became my on demand warm cannabis infused honey dispenser there for a minute. And I’m sure you probably shouldn’t do that for some reason (unnecessary wear and tear?)… but yeah… you should if you get the chance… Because if the apocalypse happens tomorrow, you’ll be glad you had that incredible Babylonian experience.

One morning, it got really chilly in our house and the honey had thickened up so I couldn’t dispense it into my morning coffee without reheating it. I made a little sad face, mumbled that it was too cold and turned it on.

The farmer saw this and couldn’t help himself, “That is literally the most white girl problem I have ever heard of… ‘Ohh noooo… my hot marijuana honey machine isn’t warm yet.’”

But my Levo didn’t make fun of me. It just warmed up that honey and poured a little in my cup.

It gets me.

Now, I know that those first exciting feelings of love fade over time.

In just a few months, the farmer and I went from making out under the flowering plum trees to wanting to kill each other while driving across the country in a 1969 lifted camouflage Subaru Brat.

Now, the Brat was one of the only other objects I’ve ever loved in my life. She had a hula girl strapped to the front and the Hulk glued to the back and it turns out that -while it was the COOLEST car ever- it wasn’t the most practical car.

It also turns out that in a loving relationship you shouldn’t make unilateral decisions like buying a lifted Subaru Brat… especially when you can’t drive said car because she’s a stick, with no power steering, and gigantic tires. You literally had to be the Hulk to drive it. Alas, I have the upper body strength of the hula girl.

But I also know that (unlike a lifted camo Subaru Brat), even when the novelty is gone, the Levo has staying power.

It makes incredibly easy, potent, delicious oils and sweet tinctures (like this honey infusion and vegetable glycerine tincture) at the touch of a button. Because the Levo doesn’t grind up your plant material (like some of the other infusion devices) it makes the tastiest, most beautiful oils and sweet tinctures on the planet. Honey and olive oil are two of the infusions that (IMHO) are hard to get the taste right on when you infuse them with cannabis. They are both delicious when infused using the Levo.

Clean up is another place where the Levo really shines.

With the herb press, you don’t even need to touch the plant material to squeeze out any leftover goodness, and when it comes to sticky infusions like vegetable glycerin or honey, that is a huge blessing. I’m pretty sure I joked about dipping my hands in tea to get off the infused honey in the past and I’m so glad that I don’t have to live that joke anymore. Now, I just dip the pod into a pot of hot water or into a huge cup of tea without turning into human fly paper (see below).

As for the rest of the parts, you can toss everything in the dishwasher and move on with your day.

I’ve tested sooo many other infusion methods and I’m just telling you that once you experience the cleanliness of a Levo, it’s hard to go back.

And the design… I mean… look at this thing.

Levo Oil Infuser

What I really love about the Levo and the company that makes him (cars are girls, appliances are boys… and I’ll probably get troll mail for assigning inanimate objects gender roles) is that they’re constantly designing new things that add to the functionality of the device.

The Power Pod and the Herb Press came out this month and they make the Levo a no brainer for me to recommend. They also have these great silicon cube trays for easy storage and dosing.

Unlike some of the other infusers out there, the Levo uses a magnetic stirring mechanism that doesn’t aerate your ingredients. This increases shelf life and also means that the Levo is far and away the most quiet infuser on the market.

Let’s take a break from our love story and I’ll walk you through using a Levo step by step so you can see just how simple it is.

Using a Levo

  1. Fill your pod with herbs or THE herb 😉

  2. Place the pod and the magnet in the infusion chamber (I don’t know what it’s actually called).levo oil infuser top don
  3. Pour in your oil, honey or vegatble glycerine.
  4. Press start and then set your desired temperature and time (Levo has a handy guide for that).
  5. When it’s done, press any remaining oil or sweet tincture out of the pod using the herb press, rinse the pod out and put it right into the dishwasher. 
  6. Place a container under the machine and press the little raindrop button to dispense your infusion directly into whatever jar or bottle you’d like to store it in.

  7. Remove the infusion chamber and put all of the parts in the dishwasher.levo oil infuser dishwasher
  8. Wipe it down, give it a kiss, tell it how much you appreciate it, etc.

Pros + Cons

Now, I know that you guys are used to my pros and cons lists when I do reviews, but I’m not going to do that here. Because the only cons I could think of up until this point have an easy solution.

Here’s the deal on the pod size. The pod that the levo comes with is pretty small. I think it fits about 4 grams when I weighed it. Then you have to use 2 cups of oil to reach the top of the pod. If you use cannabis that is 15% THC, that means that each teaspoon will be about 6mg THC.

So in order to make oil that is potent (like 12mg/teaspoon), you have to do a double infusion OR you have to use 1 cup of oil and fill the pod halfway and do that again for another cycle. But you don’t have to do that anymore!

Levo Oil infuser power podEnter the Power Pod. The Levo folks came up with a pod that is twice the size of the original and makes it easy to make more potent infusions in one cycle. The Power Pod is an extra $9.99 and I would suggest that if you’re going to get a Levo, you need the Power Pod. It’s worth it to make more potent infusions without having to reload the pod every time.

When I first tried the Levo, it was also a bit difficult to squeeze out the plant material and there was a lot of good stuff left in there. Again… You don’t have to do that anymore!

levo oil infuser herb press

Enter the herb press. This thing is simple genius and it gets every last drop out of the material while it’s still in your pod. So again… easy clean up. It’s also an extra $9.99, but if you’re making more than a couple of infusions a year, it’s worth investing in.

I know that a lot of you are going to ask what’s the difference between a Levo and a Magical Butter and which one I prefer, and I’ll get to that in detail in another post, but for now, all I’m going to say is that my Levo lives on the countertop where I use it about once a week, and my Magical Butter is… wait… where is my Magical Butter?

 

Conclusion

Overall, I think for the price ($199), the Levo is the best small batch home infuser and the only device I currently recommend to my friends, family members and clients.

I’ve tried so many methods and infusers and can honestly say that this is the only company that really put some thought into infusion instead of just ripping off what the last guy did.

Levo oil infuser with cannabis

I think that’s what makes it so loveable. It’s unique. It’s easy. It makes the most flavorful oils and sweet tinctures. It keeps my kitchen clean. It’s quiet. And it’s beautiful.

I think me and it should probably get a room.

    OK, you have convinced me to get one. Do you know if you can use alcohol in this to make a concentrate? I am 74 and have to wait for my SS check to arrive. Black Friday special?

    I want to know if there is a smell your house gets while this is working. We try to keep the smell out since we are renters and our landlords may not like it.

    Probably a stupid question but hey I will ask anyway. How potent is the smell while the machine is doing it’s thing? Other machines I put outside because of the potent smell.
    Thanks!

    Hi! Do you have any suggestions about infusing honey or Vegetable Glycerine in the Levo? Or can you use both in the levo like you would coconut oil?

    Would you recommend using Sunflower Lecithin when infusing with the levo?

    Does this work for butter and coconut oil infusion? Is there a machine that infuses grain alcohol? It would be nice to not have to wait 30+days. Thanks. Peace, Love and Happiness to All

    I got my machine today! I ordered it after reading this.I am so excited to try it! I don’t see any “settings” for honey on the levo site.So I was wondering if you could tell us the temp settings and if there is a good ampunt of time to set it for? Thanks so much!
