    First timer with cannabis. Only grown WW so far. Cooking with it, the weed puts off strong odor and taste. Does all weed/strains smell and taste bad/unappealing?

    My first grows were in FF soil, indoors. Next is hydroponics but strain supposed to be fruity.

    No, all Cannabis has its own unique smells and flavors. Some less appealing than others.

    Well, white widow, is one I don't like. . .

    My new grow is just starting, hoping it'll be much better than my first couple batches with white widow. It'll take some time to get through about 2 lbs of the other stuff though.

    That green flavor? I don't care for it myself. Never have. Stronger spices cover it up. Full flavor is cannabutter on toast. No salad can match that flavor...ugh.

    How are using the cannabis? Do you make canna butter? I make a lot of edibles and they taste great.. Most things are better with the cannabis flavor. Most people can't even detect a "weed" flavor in my products. They just like it because it tastes good; getting high is secondary. You're doing something wrong in the preparation if you're getting a bad taste.

    Usually coconut oil. Don't use water as I didn't want to risk any mold.

    That's your problem. You are getting too many impurities in your extraction. When you use water it helps to separate the icky stuff from the cannabis oil. Refrigerate it afterwards and it will separate out, leaving you a much purer and better tasting product. Just pour off the water and impurities. It will keep with no problems for a week or so in the refrigerator...longer in the freezer
