We will break down how to decarb hemp flower for cooking, baking and drinking purposes.

Decarbing Help Flower for Cooking (Without It Tasting like Bong Water)

The process is called decarboxylation (decarbing) and it’s a necessary step before making hemp flower edibles, tinctures, and extractions. If you eat the hemp flower without decarbing it, you will not get the full effect of CBD. That’s because raw and cured hemp flower does not contain much CBD (cannabidiol). It contains mostly CBDa, the acid form of CBD.

Decarbing Steps:

Here are the steps on how to decarb hemp flower:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to a temperature of 240 Farrenheit
  2. Grind your Scotch Valley Ranch CBD flower. If you do not have a cannabis or coffee grinder, break it up into very small pieces with your fingers and then chop with a knife
  3. Spread the ground hemp flower out onto a cookie sheet creating a very thin layer.
  4. Place the cookie sheet in the oven on the middle rack.
  5. Bake for 90 minutes.

Remove from the oven and let cool. The CBD flower should look brownish and feel dry to the touch. It should also crumble when rolled in your fingers. (There will be a pungent aroma that lingers so don’t do this if your boss is coming over for dinner!)
