Decarboxylation Tips

Decarboxylation -  

When making cannabis oil for treating late stage cancer it is important to understand decarboxylation. Cannabis in raw/unheated form is primarily THCA, which converts to active THC through heat and time.

While some very slow and gradual decarboxylation does occur at temperatures as low as room temp during drying and curing stages of weed preparation it is not until higher heats are encountered that all THCA is converted to THC. If you are making cannabis oil you need to make sure the oil is cooked sufficiently to complete full decarb.

Raw cannabis is very beneficial and cannabinoid acids like THCA, along with naturally present terpenes, are believed to be very beneficial with possible anti cancer properties. However, it is active THC, and CBD, that has the majority of clinical and anecdotal evidence supporting its cancer killing effects. So, based on what is currently known, cannabis oil that is most potent in THC content is likely going to be the most potent medicine for curing cancer. Raw cannabis in the form of juices and unheated oils are beneficial too and would make a great addition to someone's treatment, but should not replace cooked cannabis oil, and often require much larger quantities for therapeutic value. Raw or partially cooked oils will contain a wider range of components including cannabinoid acids and terpenes, which are lost when oils are fully cooked, but THC is the most essential cannabinoid for fighting cancer so make sure you decarb your medicine properly to maximise its potency.

The Rick Simpson method only guarantees partial decarb from the rice cooker stage, and while full decarboxylation can be achieved with the use of a coffee warmer or candle warmer it can take some time to complete this process and other gentle heating devices may not be hot enough. Many of the solvents used have boiling points below the optimum temps for full and rapid decarb. If you do not have a coffee/candle warmer, of even if you do, it is recommended to put your oil in the oven at 110 degrees Celsius for about an hour (optimum temperature range is 110c to 130c/230F to 266F).

  Visible bubbling will cease when the solvent and water, along with volatile terpenes, are boiled off. But you will see very small pin prick explosions on the surface of the oil during decarboxylation. When this has ceased and there is no activity on the surface of the oil at temps of 110c or above, then you know that decarboxylation is complete. While you want to ensure that temperature does exceed 110 degrees Celsius for decarb, it is also advised to stay below 140 as temps above 140 can lead to a loss of THC through vaporisation or degradation to CBN (vaporising of THC occurs from 157c).

In an ideal world everyone would have access to both raw and cooked cannabis in a well controlled manner, but in this world where oil making can be expensive and risky it is best to make sure your medicine is as potent as it can be to maximise its potential.

  1. OMG""""ALTHOUGH WORDS ARE NOT ENOUG TO THANK DR ZACK FOR SAVING MY WIFE FROM DYING OF CANCER DISEASE"""
    My wife was diagnosed of prostrate cancer few months ago by doctor, And advised we use a high frequency treatment that is not available in URUGUAY, and couldonly be done in BELARUS at the cost of [31,000] euro which i could not afford with my present financial situation so i started looking for a quicker alternative, i contacted a co-worker who,s wife have experience such situation and came out of it under few months to know the solution which he told me that the situation was brought under control and normal till date by just using DR.ZACK CANNABIS OIL, Instantly i contacted DR.ZACK and in 48 hours i have gotten the cannabis oil in my country which my wife started applying it immediately, soonest she regain her appetite, That was the first benefit that we noticed. She was happier, she smiled and laughed constantly. We loved it! One week after we began the oil treatment the physicians notified us that her leukemia had vanished from her bone marrow and blood! She was in remission. Never again will I fear cancer. We found the answer! my wife is currently 3 months into the intense treatment part and has never used any pain relievers (not even Tylenol) and has only had to take anti-nausea medication a few times. you can contact him via his email address EVOLUTIONSPELLTEMPLE@YAHOO.COM
