How To Decarboxylate Your Cannabis At Home Without Any Smell


If you watched any of the Cannadish video recipes, you have seen that before starting a cannabis recipe or extraction the cannabis goes through a heating process called: Decarboxylation.
To receive the full effects of cannabis it needs to be decarbed first. Which is heating the cannabis to activate the cannabinoids THC and CBD. Without decarbing the cannabis you will miss out on some important benefits the plant offers and won’t feel any effects.

When you light that bowl or joint on fire, your weed immediately goes through the decarboxylation process. THCA is converted into THC. You light the bowl, inhale, and you experience the euphoric high weed is famous for. The cannabis that goes into these infused edibles must go through the same decarboxylation process that happens when you smoke it.

Decarboxylating cannabis:

The easiest way to decarb your cannabis is to place your material on an oven tray and set the oven to 240 Fahrenheit for 40 minutes. Use an oven thermometer to make sure your ovens temperature is accurate. Your cannabis will now be activated. And depending on what strain you are using, the aroma of your cannabis will start to change when you are decarbing your cannabis dry in the oven. Which will give you a better tasting end result when making an extraction with it such as Cannabis butter or oil.

Decarbing it in the oven is a great way to decarboxylate your cannabis at home. However, your house will start to smell a lot like cannabis. If you want to avoid any smell of cannabis during decarboxylation or infusion, simply “sous vide” vacuum seal your cannabis and place it in boiling water for 55 minutes. This will guarantee no smell during the decarb or infusion process.

To do this, take your fresh cannabis buds and place them in a vacuum proof plastic bag. Seal the bag using a vacuum machine to take out all air. Simply drop it in boiling water and wait for 55 min. Now, your house won’t be stinked up as much!

    1. No. Decarbing it in the oven for 40 minutes will be the easiest way to decarb effectively. If you do not want any smell in your house. Than decarb it by vacuum sealing the cannabis and dropping it in boiling water for 55 minutes. After that it is activated

      1. Doesn’t it smell still? I think so. I thought u were referring to decarb it boiling water. Then begin your process with oil,butter, etc.

      2. I think you misread this Flex…he said there are 2 ways to decarb…oven OR boiling water. For the boiling water method…vacuum seal it and boil for 55 minutes.

      3. Might seem like a dumb question, but when you say “boiling water for 55 min”, do you mean to put it in the boiling water and leave it for 55 min, or do you mean we have to keep the water hot somehow during those 55 minutes? And how much water should be used, does it matter?
