    Noting how marvelous cannabis can often smell, I wondered if I could use my stash to make my own incense. I began looking at how incense is made. Most incense recipes out these that I saw required one of 3 special ingredients: gum tragacanth- the dried sap of a Middle Eastern legume, makko powder- the bark of an Asian tree or gum arabic, these help bind the incense together and keep it burning. Other than that, the rest seemed pretty simple. Adding water to the sandalwood and cassisa powder and making a dough similar in texture to play dough, forming it into a cone or coil, and letting it dry. Making stick incense involved dipping thin bamboo strips into the same batter with more water added to it, letting it dry and dipping it in again repeatedly.

    ehow has several free articles about this: http://www.ehow.com/how_6216028_make-incense-coil-cone.html

    Also this book was good: making your own incense

    I bet you could but if you like the smell why don't you just light one up before you confuss everyone even yourself

    I use Mosquito coils and paint them with Jasmine insence oil or lavender insence oil, It hides the smell of my grow nicely in the Greenhouse !

    I dont think i would use marijuana scented oil.
    Might raise a few eyebrows and my visitor ratings at midnight would certainly improve.

    Just sayin. Good luck .
