Learn how to make no-smell cannabutter with this easy method that involves using a slow cooker and a mason jar. Cannabutter can produce quite the stench when it is being made on the stovetop and this method can help those who live in shared spaces to make their cannabutter without disturbing their roommates or neighbours.
In addition, using our No-Smell Decarboxylation method, both parts of a cannabutter infusion can be made without any stench.
Why Does Cannabis Need to be Decarboxylated?
Decarboxylation, or decarbing, is an essential process in making cannabis edibles. Cannabis is not psychoactive in its raw form and this process ensures that valuable cannabinoids, such as Delta-9 THC, are properly activated. In addition, the process of decarboxylation also prepares cannabis for bio-availability, a process that allows cannabis to have an effect as an edible substance.
Decarboxylation is the scientific process that takes place when cannabis is exposed to heat. In scientific terms, decarboxylation refers to a reaction of carboxylic acids that remove a carbon atom from a chain of atoms present within a plant such as cannabis. When heat is applied to cannabis, it will remove a carboxyl group from the THCA cannabinoid (non-psychoactive) and creates the psychoactive Delta-9 THC. Decarboxylation also occurs when cannabis is smoked or vaporized.
This same method can also be used to make No-Smell:
The cannabinoids within cannabis also absorb into different fats at different rates which may increase or decrease the potency of the final infusion.
Ingredients to Make No-Smell Cannabutter
Every individual has a unique endocannabinoid system within their body. This system governs how cannabis will affect you personally.
- 8 Grams of Decarboxylated Cannabis
- 1/2 a Pound (227 grams) of Butter
Starting out with a small amount of cannabis in an infusion is a great way to test your own tolerance. Our “flower to oil ratio” article may help with determining an appropriate dosage.
How to Make No-Smell Cannabutter
This method allows those who live in shared spaces to make their own cannabutter without disturbing their housemates.
- Fill the slow cooker with water (at least halfway)
- Turn onto high and then chop the butter into squares
- Place the butter into the Mason Jar along with the decarboxylated cannabis
- Float the jar in the water until the butter has melted completely
- Once the butter has melted, the Mason Jar can be stood upright and covered
- Ensure the water level in the slow cooker is always above the butter
- After 2 hours, remove the Mason Jar from the slow cooker and shake lightly
- Place the mason jar back into the slow cooker (upright) and top up the water if needed
- This cannabutter infusion can be covered to stop as much water from evaporating
- After 4 hours, remove the cannabutter from the slow cooker and set aside for 15 minutes
- Attach the cheesecloth to the top of the measuring jug with a rubber band
- Once you are able to take the lid off safely (it has cooled enough), remove the lid and strain through the cheesecloth into the measuring jug
- Transfer the cannabutter from the measuring jug into the final container for this infusion
- Freeze until solid and then use in your own cannabis edibles
With this Cannabutter you Can Make:
And Many More!
Cannabis edibles will affect every individual in a different way, there is no one-size-fits-all option for cannabis edibles. It is important that you know your own personal tolerance, or, start with a smaller amount of cannabis, if you are inexperienced with cannabis edibles.
