How to decarb weed for making edibles

March 14, 2020

In short, when you are going to make edibles out of marijuana, hemp (aka “weed”), then you first must prepare the flower so it can provide the desired results in your edibles.

All this means is basically you have to heat it up for a little while in the oven so it can turn its dormant material into something that we can use as humans.

so what we have to do is keep the base flower up in the oven or however you prefer to eat it, at roughly 240 degrees Fahrenheit for roughly 30 to 40 minutes.

You can’t just eat weed

If you thought that “edibles” meant simply eating marijuana flower, then you’d be very wrong — and you’d waste a lot of precious flower by eating it without preparing it first. All this means is we need to “decarboxilate” the flower, to activate it.

There are plenty of online resources that do a solid job of explaining it. They also show the science behind it and how it all works.

Today, for this article, we’re simply discussing the summary, the thing you need to remember. (And frankly, I’ll refer back to this if I forgot the temperature or the duration.)

How long to decarb weed?
