Before you use cannabis to make anything edible, the first and very important step is decarbing. Decarboxylation is the process of adding heat to your cannabis to activate the THC. Without this step, you won’t get the best buzz from your bud. Luckily, this is a super easy process and can be done in under an hour!
What you’ll need:
- A 13×9 baking sheet
- Parchment paper
- Broken up or ground cannabis, 7-10 grams
- Pre-heat your oven to 245 degrees
- Line your baking sheet with parchment paper
- Break up your buds. You want to try to get your buds as uniform as possible to ensure an even decarbing process and distribution of THC. (Keep in mind that any bud that will pass through cheesecloth or a fine mesh strainer will end up in your final product, so you may want to avoid using keif or finely ground cannabis if you’re planning to make canna-butter or -oil.)
- Lay out ground cannabis evenly on your parchment lined sheet
- Bake at 245 degrees for 30-35 minutes
- Allow to fully cool before using in edibles or making butter/oil
Super easy, right? Now you’ve got decarbed weed ready to be turned into butter, oil, or in any dish you can think of! Stay tuned for some equally easy recipes for canna butter and canna oil to make infusing your foods a snap!
