Decarboxylation is a part of the natural aging process, making the extraction of THC from marijuana buds more potent than would be without undergoing this chemical transformation. This strategy turns cannabis' primary THC-A component into an splitting process, rendering out the final product of solely THC. In such, it is a chemical reaction that removes a carboxyl group and releases carbon dioxide in turn. There are multiple methods in which you can decarb your cannabis, the most popular method being the oven method.
Oven Method In 3 Simple Steps:
Pre-heat your oven to 215° F.
Break your bud down finely( not as fine as a powder, avoid coffee grinders!), preferably with Scissors or a Pot Sidekick Grinder. Sprinkle your bud evenly into an oven safe container of your choice. Seal off the top of your container with aluminum foil, crimping up around the edges. It is very important that your container is sealed well! Use an additional layer of aluminum foil if need be.
Put your container in the oven at 215° F for 30 minutes. After the time is up, remove the dish and let it cool, WITH the foil still on. It is best for the container to cool down slowly(not in the refrigerator/freezer) so that the vapors can settle in.
