What is Decarboxylation?

Decarboxylation is the process of heating cannabis to activate its psychoactive compounds. Raw cannabis contains THCA (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid) and CBDA (cannabidiolic acid), which are not psychoactive. Heating converts THCA into THC and CBDA into CBD, making them effective for consumption. This is a vital step before making any cannabis-infused edibles.
