So just decarb in the oven in a small pyrex dish or something?
I prefer a toaster oven, but yeah, I just use the 4oz mason jars. Keep an eye on it. I go 250 for 30 minutes, but just keep an eye on it, the time is just approx not official or anything
would you then use some kind of edible solvent (coco oil or maybe everclear obviously being very careful with the latter since you have hot oil and very flammable lol) to ensure all that valuable oil gets out of the jar and into the mix of say some candies? Or is it hot enough at that point that it will easily be mixable?
I decarb. Add my MCT oil and lecithin, turn down to like 100, stir and let it chill and meld while I’m getting the rest of my shit ready. Then just use a micro silicone spatula to get damn near every last drop out.
Thanks for the insight man!
No problem. Dm ifnyou got any more questions. It’s been a long while since I used that method since all I cook with is distillate and raw terpenes now. Saves SO much time and energy
Distillate....Can you define exactly what you mean by distillate? Thanks!
my guess is a product that was already produced using heat and pressure so therefore is already decarbed?
Yup, generally a concentrate that is further refined. It is already activated and does not need to be decarb due to it being converted during the distillation process. The distillate I use is around 93% thc.
There's plenty of analytics out there showing d9 conversion to d8 and CBD to CBN oxidation when "over decarbed" I would think decarbing first then using said oil again during a baking scenario at 350f for 10 mins minimum would catalyze a good chunk of thc and cbd to their oxidized forms. We see it all the time when turning hash oil into distillate.
Does CBD also need to be decarbed in the same way as THCa?
I don't believe so.
