Decarboxylation – What Is It?
There are a myriad of ways to
consume cannabis. If you opt to smoke or vape your weed, you won’t have to worry about decarboxylation. The process occurs by default as soon as the weed is exposed to heat.
Unfortunately for edibles, you can’t simply sprinkle your raw weed directly onto your foods as if it were salt or pepper. Cannabis in its raw state isn’t psychoactive. It is the process of decarboxylation that converts and activates cannabinoids to elicit a high.
decarboxylation is essentially the conversion of THCa into THC or CBDa into CBD. Without decarbing your weed, THCa and CBDa will not fit into the endocannabinoid receptor sites in your body. Thusly, inhibiting the effects of cannabis that we’re after.
Many beginners make the mistake of not decarboxylating their weed. Others do it incorrectly. It’s the most crucial step in the cooking process as a miss-step will result in a less potent, benign edible. Skip it or forget it and you’ll have a weak product that lacks the active cannabinoids.
