Concentrates can be used just as cannabis flowers would in the oil, butter, and tincture recipes. This is a great method for getting your edibles fix without a strong cannabis flavor. You do not need to decarb certain concentrates like RSO, distillates, or any other concentrate that has been exposed to temperatures of about 220F/110C during the extraction process for an extended amount of time.
Kitchen Tools Required:
An oven thermometer
Silicone mat or wax paper
Oven safe dish
1 gram concentrates
Start by preheating the oven to 220F. Due to variances that occur overtime to even the nicest of ovens please make sure to use a new or newer oven thermometer to ensure the baking temperature does not exceed 220F as this will kill the potency.
Put the silicone mat in an oven-safe dish.
Spread the concentrates on the silicone baking mat. Please be mindful when doing this as the concentrate will thin out and expand, possibly causing the wax to ooze off the mat.
Cover with aluminum foil and place in the oven for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, turn the oven off and allow the concentrates to completely cool in the oven.
Place the cooled concentrate into the freezer for 10 minutes so you can easily remove the concentrates from the silicone mat.
The concentrate is now fully decarboxylated, or “activated” and ready to be ingested or used in recipes.
