CannaPowder and A New Way to Do Edibles – My Review
Edibles have been growing wildly in popularity, going from an every-now-and-then item, to a primary way of getting high. Whether using them medically or recreationally, there’s something pretty awesome about eating your way to feeling better. And now with new methods, even better edibles can be made. Take CannaPowder and its patented technology for edibles and other products.
CannaPowder is on the forefront of edibles technology producing nanometric powder that can be used for all kinds of products. These powders are definitely growing in popularity for both the recreational and medical markets. Check out The THC Weekly Newsletter to keep on track with this, and tons of other stories in the cannabis industry, and for special access to deals on flowers, vapes, edibles, and many other products! We also have great offers for cannabinoid compounds like HHC-O, Delta 8, Delta 9 THC, Delta-10 THC, THCO, THCV, THCP & HHC, which you can find in our “Best-of” lists!
What are cannabis edibles?
Cannabis edibles, much like the name implies, are cannabis products that you eat. While this might be well understood, how they work is a little more complicated. Edibles are known to cause slightly different effects from smoked or vaped cannabis, and this happens for a couple reasons, and leads to a couple main differences.
First off, when cannabis is inhaled, it goes straight to the lungs where it gets picked up by the alveoli, and then transferred to the bloodstream. This happens within seconds of time, giving what seems like a near-instantaneous high. The majority of cannabinoids therefore never make it to the digestive tract, and the result is a high that only lasts for a couple hours.
When cannabis is eaten, it goes down to the stomach, through the digestive tract, and to the liver, where the THC binds with a glurononide compound to form 11-hydroxy-THC, a slightly altered metabolite of standard delta-9 THC. This form of THC is more water soluble, making it easier to pass the blood brain barrier. When eating edibles, the trip through the digestive tract takes time, and effects generally aren’t felt for 1-3 hours. Subsequent to that, however, the high can go on for 4-6 hours, or even longer. Edibles are known to cause more of a body high than a head high, although they can certainly do both.
Since the effects last longer, edibles are better for circumstances where a longer lasting substance is desirable. They also come with the caveat that they must be taken carefully. Since effects can take time to kick in, it’s very easy to consume too much, and then realize too late. This can lead to overconsumption of THC and a general feeling of being sick, which can last as long as the general effects. For this reason, users are instructed to go slow with edibles, giving them a couple hours before increasing doses.
What foods can be used for edibles?
For decades, the pot brownie was the prototypical way of doing cannabis edibles, though cookies and cakes were also popular. Since THC is fat soluble, and not water soluble, it was always important to use foods (like brownies) that involve a fat, as a way to leach out the THC into this fat substance. And so, until newer technology came out, the only real edibles game was to have them involved in something very fat-heavy.
With the advent of nanotechnology, and emulsions, this is no longer the case. Emulsions involve the ability to force two different kinds of liquids together, namely water-based and oil-based. Think of what usually happens when you try to mix oil and water, they repel each other, forming their own independent droplets. With emulsions, a consistent new mixture can be formed with these forced together particles, and this can happen on a big scale, or a small scale.
Emulsions done on bigger particles, are called macroemulsions or microemulsions. When they’re done on particles the size of 20-200 nm, they’re called nanoemulsion. Mico and macroemulsions are widely used in food products, and in the chemical industry for products like pesticides. Nanoemulsions are a newer invention, and can be seen more and more in pharmaceuticals, the cosmetics industry, and in biotech.
When it comes to applications of nanotechnology for cannabis edibles, this is the technology that allows non-fat foods to be infused with fat-based cannabinoids like CBD and THC. Instead of relying on brownies and cakes, cannabis edibles can now be made with nearly any food. This includes things like sodas, potato chips, chewing gum, and the current favorite – gummies!
So, what is CannaPowder, and how does it effect edibles?
CannaPowder is a company based out of Los Angeles, California, which doesn’t make edibles, but which created a technology to make cannabis powders, which it uses to “produce nanometric cannabis powders to meet the specific requirements of individual producers”. While these cannabis powders are growing in popularity, CannaPowder is certainly at the forefront, with some interesting technology behind its operation.
The company produces what it calls ‘nanometric powders’ using proprietary technology, which allows oil to be absorbed into these solid particles. According to the company, their formulation is comprised of: “a cannabinoid oil and other materials which are dispersed in water controlled by several repeatable parameters. The oil concentration can be increased or decreased in the process and can include permeation enhancers for increasing bioavailability. In addition, it can be formulated in various pharmaceutical delivery systems such as capsules, tablets, creams, and aqueous dispersions.”
As you can see, CannaPowder isn’t just about edibles, it’s about helping improve all kinds of delivery systems, by making a better, more absorbable product. How exactly is this done? Well, super exact information is private to the company, but it does explain that: “CannaPowder utilizes an ultra-high pressure nano-emulsifier, a unique composition of emulsifying agents, and a proprietary evaporation technique. Once vaporized, stable spheres of nano-drop particles are formed and then the liquids are evaporated to form micronized powders with particles ranging in size from 100-150 nanometers.”
The company stipulates that this “transformation is a physical and not a chemical process”, meaning, “the unique properties of the cannabis oil are preserved, while the bioavailability is enhanced.” The company claims that these powders provide more absorption, faster starting times, and longer effects, with less required to reach said effects.
My experience with CannaPowder edibles
As mentioned, CannaPowder doesn’t create edibles, but rather the powders used in them. However, CannaPowder did provide me with sample edibles to test the effects of this powder technology. I was given several one-serving packets containing crackers, cookies, a tea bag, and seasonings for food (one a chili pepper powder, one a garlic powder). So far I have tested the crackers and cookies.
The first thing I’ll say is that the food tasted decent. Not amazing, but decent, and without an overly weedy flavor. It tasted like food meant to be in packaging for a long period, so the idea of freshness was never a part of it. However, unlike some edibles, there wasn’t a strong cannabis flavor.
Both the cookies and crackers came in packets with five pieces, each piece containing two milligrams of THC for a total of 10mg per package. I admit I was not told anything further like the strains used, or if I should expect indica or sativa effects. I took this into account when trying the products.
I started with just two crackers (as I did crackers the first day). I could actually feel the effects of the four milligrams pretty well, though obviously more intensely when I added in another cracker. It took me several hours by the time I got to all five, as I wanted to make sure I wasn’t consuming too much of something too strong.
As it turned out, though I could feel effects at smaller amounts, I was still perfectly fine to take the full 10mg. 10mg is technically a standard dose. I had not eaten before taking the edibles in either case, so it’s not shocking that I felt effects in less than an hour, although I did get the feeling that they started in as little as a half hour, maybe a few minutes less. This could be the result of my empty stomach.
In terms of intensity, I can’t say that I saw a real difference between these edibles, and standard dispensary edibles, although I can say I did feel something at a smaller dose. Even so, I didn’t get overly high taking the full serving. I also can’t say the high lasted longer than usual, but it certainly didn’t cut out early either, and very well might have gone on longer than a standard edible, but not by huge amounts. I’ll pay more attention in future testing.
It is quite possible that the idea of smaller doses could be more relevant to other products like vape fluid, or capsules. Regardless, the edibles I did eat provided a nice high, without anxiety or couch locking, while keeping me relatively clear-headed. I expect this technology can go much further with medical applications, or simply as a way to streamline the edibles-making process, for producers who want a consistent product, and a quicker and easier way to do it.
Cannabis powders are certainly growing in popularity, and CannaPowder and the edibles I sampled are a good indication that this technology can produce some pretty decent cannabis products. It will be interesting to see where this technology goes in the future, and all the cool stuff that comes out of it.

COVER THE SMELL – Products to Reduce Cannabis Smoke Odor
So, you want to hotbox with your friends this Thanksgiving, but you don’t want the smoke to be smelled by the more uptight members of your family and friends circle? Now you can cover the smell easily with products meant to reduce cannabis smoke odor. Perfect for getting high on the holidays, without everyone else knowing.
If you’re going to smoke a secret joint this Thanksgiving, make sure to cover the smoke smell with the right product! On the other hand, if you’re more into vapes and gummies, you can get high with way less of a problem. In fact, no one has to know at all. We’ve got a range of deals for cannabis compounds like delta-8 THC, hemp-derived delta-9, THCV, and more. Stock up on your favorites for a truly happy Thanksgiving. Remember subscribe to The Delta 8 Weekly Newsletter for all the latest deals. Also save big on Delta 8, Delta 9 THC, Delta-10 THC, THCO, THCV, THCP & HHC products by checking out our “Best-of” lists!
Let’s be honest, every smoker wants to be high for Thanksgiving. Nothing makes turkey and stuffing taste better than toking on some fine California bud before the food is served. Plus, let’s be honest, family can be great, but there’s a reason we often move away. They can be stressful too. For some families, Thanksgiving isn’t even Thanksgiving if Uncle Joe doesn’t pick a fight with someone, and if cousin Allison doesn’t cry.
And just like we know that Joe will be rude, and Allison will cry, and the turkey will be delicious, we also know that first chance we get, we’re going to steal away to the basement with a tightly packed joint, and let off some of that dealing-with-family-steam that’s built up. Maybe smoked alone, or with some other family member who’s also just trying to make it through. Chances are, that before pumpkin pie is served, we’ll be glassy-eyed, and at least partially immune to the bickering going on around.
Truth is, while the general opinion on smoking weed has changed drastically in the last decade, it doesn’t mean everyone’s onboard, particularly the older folks who come from a generation of prohibition talk. So chances are, when you’re down in the basement smoking that joint, you’re really not going to want everyone to know. The problem with smoke? It spreads super easily, and once it’s out there, it’s hard to do much about it. You can spray perfumey scents that create a sweet-smoke mixture, or try to wave it all out a window with your hands, or just hope it weakens enough before getting to anyone’s nose.
There are tons of situations in life where you might not want those around you to know what you’re smoking. Maybe you’re in a place where you’re not technically supposed to be smoking, or around people who just aren’t cool with it. Maybe it’s just that the smoke wouldn’t mix with what’s going on, or maybe there are little kids around. Whatever the reason, sometimes its not a good idea to have weed smoke around, and sometimes you need to cover the smell.
Cover that smell with NSNT
At a point in life, I remember spraying cheap perfume in my car after smoking my one hitter before going into work most days. It smelled sickly sweet, and created a mixture of grossly sweet and smoky air, which would stay in my car, seep into the seats. It didn’t really help the situation in the end. Now, there are better options out there. Options that actually work.
I was able to speak with retailers at this year’s MJBizCon, and found two different products perfect to cover the smell of cannabis smoke. The first literally kills the smoke smell, while leaving nothing behind at all, in an almost magic trick sort of way. It’s actually rather cool, just a few sprays from the bottle into a room of smoke, and the smoke just disappears, along with all scent. Nothing heavy left, nothing overly sweet and perfumey. Just clean-smelling air. The product NSNT (No Smell Not There) Air & Fabric Odor Neutralizer and Eliminator, neutralizes and eliminates all cannabis smoke odor, and it does it really fast.
It can be used on any water-safe products like clothing, carpets, furniture, bedding, curtains etc. The spray produced is non-toxic, organic, and made in a cruelty-free way. This means not only will you get the smoke out of the air, but you won’t breathe in any bad, and unnecessary, chemicals instead.
The company produces a product with no fragrance, alcohol, phthalates, phosphates, or parabens. The company is geared toward sustainable production methods using 100% recycled plastic, and biodegradable shipping paraphernalia. The one thing I found to be missing, is a complete ingredient list. The following product options exist for interested buyers:
- $5.25 – 2 oz travel size
- $12.00 – 8 oz spray bottle
- $18.75 – 16 oz spray bottle
- $31.75 – 32 oz refill
The company also offers combination deals ranging from $15.75 to $54.25 which include multiple products per deal. As it is odor free, there is only one product scent option.
Cover that smell with Cannabolish
This is the second product I found that I really liked. First and foremost, this product name rocks. I fully admit that I’d likely take it off the shelf before NSNT (with all other things being equal) just because of its name. Good marketing truly has value, guys! The main difference between this and the previous option? A scent.
Cannabolish comes in Wintergreen scent or Lavender scent, and can come as a spray or a candle. I have the wintergreen spray and think it smells a bit more like sandalwood, but I like the scent regardless. It did hang in the air for a little while after spraying, but in a generally light way. For those who don’t like scents, an odorless product like NSNT would probably be preferable. Much like with NSNT, Cannabolish truly did neutralize the scent immediately, with the spray taking the smoke right out of the air with about 4-6 sprays, and this after several bong hits. I went out of the room and came back in several times to test it out…there was no smell of smoke in the room after a few sprays of either product. Cannabolish product options include:
- $14.99 7 oz Wintergreen or Lavender candles
- $4.99 2 oz spray, Wintergreen or Lavender
- $11.99 8 oz spray, Wintergreen or Lavender
The company also sells odor removing gel for $9.99 (7 oz) or $15.99 (15 oz), and Kits comprised of multiple products, starting at $17.98. Interested buyers can even purchase apparel including hats for $20, and T-shirts for $25.
How do these products work to cover the smell of smoke?
NSNT breaks it down like this: “the simple chemistry is to have one molecule in our formula attach itself to one molecule of a cannabis related smell and together they quickly become totally neutralized, returning your environment to a completely smell-free environment!”
Of course, the company goes on to stipulate: “Finding a formula to make it work was quite difficult. While there are products on the market that seem to use this theory, they fall short because they still utilize fragrances and alcohol. Adding to the challenge to find a workable product with no fragrance at all is to make a green product which is biodegradable, eco-friendly, sustainable and safe for humans and pets.”
Cannabolish makes similar claims, stating on its site: “Traditional air freshener products just cover up unwanted odors with perfumes. They claim essential oils or natural plant extracts but use harsh chemical compounds and harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) when they spray. They’re unsafe to use and should be avoided.
Cannabolish is made from natural plant oils and water (a blend we’ve perfected over 30 years), absorbing and removing odors without toxic ingredients. It’s safe to use around animals and people, in large or small spaces, as often as you need it.”
This company does provide a partial ingredient list, but keeps its proprietary plant oil blends a secret, saying: “Marijuana smoke contains a multitude of chemicals produced from the combustion of the plant—resulting in toxic and odorous chemicals such as benzene, ammonia, and formaldehyde. Cannabolish candles and sprays were designed by investigating the causes of smoke odors (benzene, toluene, formaldehyde). Then a blend of plant oils was designed to cancel out those odorous chemicals.”
Neither company was any more specific than this. Interested consumers can do a little research into how the process of neutralizing odors works, to understand better the difference between these products, and standard perfumes and smell-covering agents.
Word to the wise
Not every odor neutralizer will be created equally, and many will employ unwanted chemicals. Do your homework if you’re looking for a more natural product. The two mentioned here are about as good as I could find, and although they don’t release all information, they do release enough to know they’re environmentally friendly, and produce naturally-based products.
For those less concerned with chemicals, or who aren’t looking to neutralize an odor, there are a range of products available that can help with changing the smell around you. However, for those who want a high class, and well working product, these two companies have certainly nailed it.
Holidays are a great time to remember that smoking a joint can be the key to relaxing in a stressful family environment. Do so this year with added certainty that you can cover the smell of your weed successfully, and keep your private joint smoking moments…truly private.
