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.

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.

  1. I’ve seen about the same temperature recommended for decarboxing cannabis from various sources. What varies is the oven time. Anywhere from 15-45 minutes.

  2. You forgot to mention what temperature to use on the sous vide machine
    I’ve done this in the past and it is a excellent way just forget what temperature I used but I would go one step further and forgo using a bag using a mason jar is the best way to avoid having any smell

  3. Only difference is the amount of thc that is considered, sure to the trump difference between oven 240° and boiling 212°.
