This question is for producing an oral extract (RSO), that requires decarboxylation. A well published and simple process is to use a QWET extract to get a solution. Then cook off the ethanol using a magnetic hotplate stirrer. The decarboxylation can be achieved by continuing to gently heat the solution for a couple of days after removal of the Ethanol, until the small CO2 bubbles stop. However, a NOVA Decarboxylator from Ardent Cannabis, can decarboxylate in under 2 hours. Which sounds like a great time saver. But, and there is always a but, it's easier to decarboxylate in the NOVA when still on the bud. That would mean moving the decarboxylation stage to the beginning of the QWET process, before the material is frozen. Does anyone know if this will this negatively impact the chemistry in the QWET and cooking off stages, and result in a degraded extract?
