According to one study, edibles are the second most popular way to consume cannabis, behind only smoking flower. Cannabis-infused butter ("cannabutter”) is an often-used vehicle for mixing cannabis into brownies, cookies, candies, drinks, and other baked goods, resulting in a tasty batch of potent edibles.
But making cannabutter isn’t easy, and the smell it leaves behind can be stubborn, lingering in your kitchen for days. After all, it requires an extensive process of slowly heating cannabis buds to effectively decarboxylate ("decarb”) the flower -- grinding, simmering, and straining -- leaving opportunity for odor molecules to escape into the air and cling to kitchen surfaces.
While mixing in other spices with the infused butter may work to disguise the smell, they’re often not enough to keep marijuana odors away. Fragrance-based air fresheners often mask the smell temporarily, but do little to attack odors at the source, neutralizing them for good.
Instead of filling in your kitchen with a mist of chemical-based air fresheners, get rid of cannabutter smell effectively with these steps:
If you haven’t started baking yet, take a minute to light a Cannabolish Odor Removing Candle. These soy-based candles aren’t scented to mask odors -- instead, its wax serves to remove odor molecules directly from the air. The candle’s soy-based wax releases Cannabolish into the air when lit, attacking odor molecules at the source.
For best results, light the candle about 30 minutes before you make your butter to give the wax an opportunity to melt and pool. Keep it burning during and after you back to remove any lingering odors.
Open as many windows as possible in your kitchen and nearby rooms. Turn on surrounding fans and the stove vent to ensure odor molecules can disperse rather than collecting on kitchen surfaces.
During and after the baking process, spritz Cannabolish Odor Removing Spray in the air, on counters and dish towels, and any other odor-harboring surfaces. The natural plant oils in the Cannabolish Spray find and eliminate weed smells, without fake perfumes or harmful chemicals.
Several homemade edible fans and pro-marijuana bakers have shared their methods for producing odor-free cannabutter, but these recipes often include more equipment and time for straining. If you want to stick with your tried-and-true method without stinking up your apartment for days, just grab a set of Cannabolish Odor Eliminating Candles and Sprays and get to baking!
