Cannabis in its natural form before it undergoes a heating process (smoking, steaming or cooking), does not contain THC and CBD. Also, it contains their acid form and these are also cannabinoids, THCA and CBDA. Once activated by an increase in temperature, this will cause the desired effect. This process is called decarboxylation. Without this crucial step, it is a safe bet that your cannabis brownies will have very weak psychoactive effects, even nonexistent … And for some strains, it is the same for the taste. Decarboxylation of your cannabis is necessary before cooking!
WHAT IS DECARBOXYLATION?
Decarboxylation is the heating process that activates cannabis. Dried marijuana does not have psychoactive properties, which means it cannot make you high.
the plant must be heated to accelerate this conversion. The decarboxylation process separates carbon molecules from the molecular chain.
The quickest and easiest way is to spread the pieces of your dried herb on a baking sheet. And place it in the oven …
This process takes about 20 to 30 minutes. The heat should be between 120 at 140 degrees Celsius.
Ingredients: 28 grams of cannabis spent grinding
Equipment: hotplate, baking paper, and oven
- Take your cannabis at the grinder
- Preheat the oven to 120 degrees
- Place the baking paper on the tray
- Sprinkle a thin layer of cannabis on the baking paper
- Put the tray in the oven for 20 at 30 minutes
- Remove the tray from the oven and let the cannabis cool
Cannabinoids are hardly soluble in water, but very easily in oil. For this reason, it is necessary to integrate all the characteristics of cannabis for the cooking, with an oily ingredient: the milk, the butter or even the oil of coconut will work very well. Water, so a cup of tea with a cannabis flower cannot do the trick unless mixed with milk.
After the cannabis has gone through the process of decarboxylation, you can simply mix it with chocolate, fruit, or any other food prepared with a fat component – Good tasting!!
