You can skip this step if you’re using cannabis concentrates to make THC oil. However, with flowers and trimmings, you want to make sure they are fully decarboxylated to convert any THC-A into THC. THC-A won’t get you high if you eat it. It would need to be heated to do so, which is what the decarboxlation process is all about.
1. To start, finely grind your weed onto a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
2. Next, bake the broken down buds in an oven at 225-250 °F.
Break up your materials and spread them across a sheet of aluminum foil. Leave them in an oven at 225°F for 15 to 30 minutes. The temperature should be low enough to prevent flavorful terpenes from burning away. If you smell or see vapor forming, turn off the oven.
