A Quick Note About Decarboxylation

Decarboxylating cannabis is a crucial step before infusing it into recipes. To do so, preheat your oven to 240°F (115°C). Break down the cannabis buds into smaller pieces and spread them evenly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 30-40 minutes, allowing the cannabinoids to activate without burning the plant material. Once done, your cannabis is ready to be infused into recipes.
