How to Decarb Marijuana?

There are several ways to make marijuana infusions, but it is highly recommend to decarboxylate your herb material first, without decarboxylation, it won’t have the same effects and less THC in the final product.

Cannabis-infused butter or oil is one of the simplest and most common ways to make medicated foods. Making infused butter properly has a few steps and can be a little bit tricky. The entire process usually take a few hours, some recipes require even 24 hours if you using a slow-cooker, but once you have a batch of cannabutter, you’ll be able to make any marijuana-infused food within minutes and enjoy your dose of medicine the way you like. You need to remember to pick your strain carefully, because each strain can gives you different experiences and final effects. Each strain has different THC/CBD compound which can be used for various medical purpose.

Decarboxylating is very important step. This Is the process of converting the THCA to THC, by heating herbs in a low temperature in the oven without losing terpenes, which are the pungent oils that affect the color your of your cannabis and the instinctive flavors such as berry, mint, citrus or pine and more. There are many medicinal benefits to be claimed from terpenes; some will successfully relieve your stress while others will promote focus and awareness, so is very important to get the first step right, without exposing the dry material to too a high temperature.

Recommended temperature for this process is : 194/212F (90/100C).

So when you have your oven set to this temperature, spread grinded buds evenly across baking sheet and bake for about 40-45 minutes, checking regularly for even toasting, try not to open oven door fully, keeping all the flavors inside. You can easily use Pyrex bowl or tin foil and cover it to keep all the good stuff inside, while your buds are decarboxylating. 

With this now decarboxilated cannabis, you can easily start making butter, olive, coconut oil or some other type of infusion.

Hello Jim, you are right!
The older the dried cannabis is, the more it has been decarbed, so it doesn’t need to be too long in oven later. However it takes a really long time before bud completely decarbs naturaly. In that case I would still bake it in the oven for maybe 10-15minutes.

Does older, (obviously dryer) weed decard faster that freshly cured weed. After properly cured weed has been around for 10 months it has lost some of the moisture, therefore I would think that a shorter time in the oven would be called for.

Believe it or not, the 1 gram cannabutter recipe is real and it works! So, a few weeks back I got my hands on some pretty potent Lemon OG Kush- 2 grams of flower to be exact. Rolling one gram up into a nice joint, I sat leisurely and well-medicated in my kitchen thinking, "Maybe I can make cannabutter with this 1 gram that I have".

Me being the need-to-know-it-all that I am, I made sure to do some research before cheffing up this marvelous 1 gram cannabutter batch. Unsurprisingly, nothing conclusive came up for my results. Matter of fact, most people denounced that a 1 gram cannabutter recipe even exists.

One of the great things about Marijuana that it has endless ways to consume it, and people are getting innovative in this department. Smoking it is just the old fashion way. When it comes to edibles, it can get VERY creative and experts have came up with tons of ideas.

When thinking about weed edibles, sweeteners like corn syrup are usually overlooked. The great things about infused corn THC syrup are its ease of preparation and the many different applications. THC Infused corn syrup is a great starting point for many sweet-treats, including the increasingly popular hard candy route for those looking to ingest their cannabis in more a stealthy manner.

    Classic shortbread cookies with recipe ratio of 3:2:1  always comes out well, preparation of them is very simple and doesn’t take too much time. I like to experiment with this recipe and add some different extra flavors.  This time the cookies with an orange intense taste and aroma exceeded my expectations, they look great and taste even better. Also this recipe could not miss the hemp seeds. I like to storage them in airtight container for about week, and reach for them when I need a dose of my medicine. This recipe calls for 200g of butter, which is quite a lot so you must keep the right dosage in mind for you.
