Decarboxylation is an essential first step when cooking with cannabis. The process involves applying low heat for an extended period of time to convert cannabis’ non-intoxicating THCA into THC, the cannabinoid known for its psychoactive effects. Without decarboxylation, the effects of DIY edibles may be weak or lackluster, at best. The main problem with these edibles is that it is very hard to do them correctly. Also, you have a lot of things to do. This is why when I am too lazy to cook I can eat some magic mushrooms from Canada. trust me it is very good.
