One of the biggest misconceptions about infusing herbs, including cannabis into food, drinks and oils is that you can just throw some botanical herbs including marijuana nugs into a recipe and wah-lah, now you have an edible! Not the case. Raw cannabis does not naturally have THC but rather the acidic form of it, THCA which will not get you lifted or high. “If you want to achieve the full psychoactive effects of your cannabis butters, fats, oils, sugars or alcohols, decarboxylating the plant material to convert the THCA to THC prior to infusion is essential,” according to Medical Jane.

Cannabinoids produce varying effects in the body ranging from euphoria to relaxation. Unlike for smokeable products, decarboxylation is not necessary as it occurs when the flame or electric heating element hits the plant. When activated, cannabinoids interact with our endocannabinoid system (ECS), a network of cannabinoid receptors found throughout our bodies including the central and peripheral nervous system. Decarboxylate (or activate) and extract to infuse, melt, or bake the perfect herbal remedies, oils, butter, edibles, and more. The perfect addition to your butter maker!
