How to Decarboxylate Concentrates


Decarboxylation is the process of activating cannabinoids by using heat over a period of time. This process is essential for making THC infused oil to cook or bake with cannabis. Certain concentrates like RSO and Distillate will not need to be decarboxylated because they are already activated. However, concentrates like budder, crumble, shatter, and kief do need to be decarboxylated. 


How to Decarb Concentrates


Decarboxylating concentrates may sound complex, but we have a simple method for you to follow:

What you will need

•   Cannabis concentrates

•   Baking sheet

•   Parchment paper

•   Oven


1.     Preheat oven to 200°F 

2.     Line baking sheet or oven safe dish with parchment paper, and place concentrate in the middle on top of the parchment paper. 

3.     Bake for 20-25 minutes, watching closely to ensure concentrates don’t burn. Once the concentrate has melted down and bubbles form, the concentrate is decarboxylated. 

Note: If you are decarboxylating kief, we suggest to cautiously stir kief around every 2 minutes when in oven. 

4.     Remove baking sheet with melted/bubbly concentrate from the oven and allow to cool. 

5.     Combine with your favorite fatty oil like Butter, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil or Avocado Oil and create your own THC infused masterpiece.
