You will need a deep stock pot and a vacuum sealer.

  • Start boiling water on the stove
  • Grind your herb up
  • Place in a vacuum seal bag and vacuum seal it
  • To keep it submerged, you can also add a weight such as a couple of stainless steel knives and vacuum seal them into the same bag but in a different compartment. This will hold the rest of the vacuum sealed bag under the water
  • Boil for 60-100 minutes. You will need to top up the water periodically with boiling water from the kettle, add an extra 2 minutes to the timer every time you do this.
  • When done, remove the bag with tongs and allow it to cool completely
  • Cut the bag open and remove the decarbed bud.
