How to mask the smell of weed?
Using less weed at a time
The first and most important step in masking the smell of Cannabis in the kitchen is using less weed at a time when you are cooking. The more weed you use, the more smell it will cause.
Instead of buds, you can also go for ready-made concentrates and already decarboxylated ones. They will not smell as much as the bud. You can also use Cannabis oil since it’s easy to use for new users as well.
Use a DecarBox
Most of the smell of weed occurs when it is decarboxylated. You can also go for this fantastic gadget made with food-grade silicone, which will keep the smell of Cannabis within. The box can easily hold upto 2 ounces of weed, so you will no longer have to cook in small batches.
Keep your kitchen ventilated.
The smell of something burning lingers on for a long time if it is not properly ventilated. Suppose you are cooking a Cannabis bud or flower. In that case, you will have to ensure that your kitchen is very well-ventilated and plenty of fresh air is coming in. Use an exhaust or Extractor fan in the kitchen to keep good air circulation and get rid of the potent smell of Cannabis decarboxylation.
Put a damp towel under the kitchen door.
Use a very old-school stoner trick of putting a damp towel under the kitchen door to limit the chances of the smell of Cannabis spreading into the rest of the house. Even though it is not a foolproof option, it will reduce the smell cost-effectively.
