    Been making edibles for several years now, I have used just about every method in the book, several times over with different product. From these 'trials' what i have gathered is decarbing helps bring the cannabis up to temp(for thca transition) faster, reducing the 'cook' time with little to no loss of quality. Like mentioned in an earlier post, if you make brownies and are baking at 300-350 F internal temps won't reach effective decarb state with in the 30 mins you'll be baking... reducing the effectiveness IMO. I always decarb bud/trim, my vaped product is just added after the fact. Check out a sous vide for cooking. No smell, set water temp/timer then go play some video games...
    Decarbing is not a necessity, but it helps increase potency, and allows for more thorough thc to bind with that fat! My 2 cents.

    The decarb question has been settled through testing. If you do not decarb your, your extraction will leave 15 to 20% unconverted.

    Best proven tech is to decarb with moderate heat and everclear. You'll be able to convert nearly 90%

    Again, this has been quantified via testing at sc labs.

    the best way i've found is overnight in the crockpot. you can use butter or oil, both work's just slightly harder to get the oil and water separated.
    let it come to a boil for an hour, then cut it down to simmer and leave it overnight. works every time, people love my edibles.
    not sure what percentage it decarbs, but i know it's enough that a one inch square of fudge will make a 225 pound guy act goofy after about an hour...and it never gets too hot, so i don't have to worry about hovering over it with my laser thermometer
