I believe it takes a while for the citric acid to break down the THCA into THC Ive read to let it soak for a week or so.?
I believe it takes a while for the citric acid to break down the THCA into THC I've read to let it soak for a week or so.?So I'm experimenting making smoothies and shakes and stuff with cannabis in a blender. Cannabis has a taste and can be used kind of like spinach, and has as a lot of nutritional value. Well I bought a blender and it arrived yesterday and I just made my first concoction ever with ice, blueberries, banana, mango, lemon juice, molasses, cannabis leaves, and banana-strawberry yogurt.
Turned out pretty good, like a fruit pudding. I'm quite satisfied with it but can think of several ways to try to improve the next to make it more drink-like. Using grape or pineapple juice rather than yogurt and crushing the ice first before adding any other ingredients will probably help. That's not the point of this thread though; to discuss fruit blending.
I've heard that cannabis can be decarboxylated (rendered psychoactive) by blending it into citrus.
Does anyone have any experience with doing this to know if it's true or not? I was thinking that if it was plausible, i'd grind a bunch of cannabis (actual buds) and lemon or grapefruit juice, strain it, and then add the ice and then all the other ingredients.
So what do you think? Is it scientifically sound to expect the grinding of a 1000w blender to create enough friction to heat a cannabis mixture past 200 degrees, activating it's cannabinoids and thus making a psychoactive smoothie?
