One of the questions we get a lot when people are making edibles is if it will smell a lot. I came across this article this morning that has a 'smell-proof' method for decarbing and infusing.

SCENT FREE CANNABIS EDIBLES: COOK WITH WEED, SCENT FREE!

Edibles are one of the most popular ways to consume cannabis. Making cannabis edibles at home is a great way to control weed potency. It is cost effective and is fun to do. However, it usually stinks up your house in the process. This is challenging for those who wish to cook cannabis discretely. Check out our easy to follow guide to making scent free cannabis edibles. Follow these steps and never deal with a weed smell while cooking weed edibles again.

There are quite a few ways to cook with cannabis. However, this one is a very effective way to make scent free cannabis edibles.

We usually cook weed edibles in these 4 steps:

  1. Choosing your strain
  2. Decarboxylate your cannabis
  3. Infuse you cannabis with a fat, or high proof alcohol
  4. Use your cannabis infusion base in a recipe
Step 2 creates a lot of smell as the decarboxylation process is done in the oven. Heating your cannabis activates terpenes and cannabinoids that give off its characteristic skunk-like scent. Contrastingly, step 3 calls for infusing your cannabis with either fat or high proof alcohol. This process produces less of a smell. Especially when using a mason jar. At this stage, there is still a light cannabis aroma.

For there to be no smell in the house when making your cannabis oil, butter, or tincture, everything needs to be vacuum sealed!

The Decarboxylation process


The decarb process is crucial as it turns your non active cannabis, THC-A, into active THC. The usual process to activate the THC in your cannabis is to place your weed in the oven on 240F for 40 minutes.

However, this obviously creates a lot of smell. To have no smell at all, vacuum seal your cannabis and place it in a pot of boiling water (212F). Boil your vacuum sealed weed for 55 minutes.

This will convert most of the THC-A into THC. Leaving some THC-A in your cannabis can actually be a good thing. This is because these compounds provide its potential medicinal benefits.

Cannabis base infusion
If the boiling process is complete it is time for next steps. Take your vacuum sealed cannabis out of the water carefully, and quickly bring it outside. Place your decarb cannabis in another vacuum bag. Now, add your choice of fat, high proof alcohol, butter, or oil. Vacuum seal your cannabis together with your selection and boil again for another 2 to 3 hours.

Once this process is done, your cannabis infusion is completely ready and active. There shouldn’t be any scent of cannabis inside the house.

Very cool, I usually stink up the house when I decarb because I'm lazy and I throw it in the oven to decarb. There are a lot of opinions on decarbing. OMG :lmao: Here's another method for no smell. In cooking you can use a sous vide. It's a water bath circulating hot water around your weed. It takes longer but has good results. You can cook amazing stuff in a sous vide. Amazon has them starting around $60 on up. I've had filet tenderloin cooked to perfection through and through. One of the best filets that I have eve
You can even infuse your fats with the sous vide.

Cannabis smell around the house can be such a headache at times. Thank you very much for the articles, I've been looking for a while for this type of guide.
If you want to cook with cannabis, make sure to use a strain that has a rich terpene profile to get the most health benefits from your oil. Also, it is recommended using strains with lower THC levels that you might use for smoking or vaping. Also, you’ll do best using a high-fat oil, like coconut oil or canola. You can even use olive oil as long as you keep in mind that canola has a higher boiling/smoking point than coconut and olive oils. Of course, if you feel like you've started cooking too often with cannabis, you might need some help with your addiction, like the one provided at thehigherpath, where you can learn other alternative ways to integrate it into your health care regime or lifestyle.
