Notes

Decarboxylation and Dosing

**Decarboxylation is the chemical process that changes the THC-A or acid in the raw cannabis plant into THC. (That’s right, there is no THC in raw cannabis). Place your plant material in an ovenproof dish and bake at 275 degrees F for abut 20 minutes before using in recipes. Yes the heat of cooking many recipes will decarboxylate your cannabis, but depending on cooking time and temps, it may or may not be enough. This extra step insures you will get maximum potency from your weed.
**This dose is only a suggestion.  Be sure to read and understand Calculating Cannabis Doses in Edibles before attempting to cook with marijuana.
