I’ve spent most of my day today researching decarboxylation and why it’s important to the oral or topical consumption of cannabis. I needed a break, so I broke out my vaporizer to take a few hits when one of those brilliant stoned thoughts you get popped into my head. In an instant I realized I was performing decarboxylation on my favorite Sour Grape strain through convection heating via my vaporizer. I was so excited, you likely have no idea what I’m talking about yet but if you hang in there with me for a few more minutes you’ll know everything you ever needed to know and more!
So, What’s all the Hoopla About Decarboxylation?
The cannabinoid compounds THC and CBD which are the psychoactive components of cannabis are mostly inert in their natural organic form (bud). Locked in the raw plant mater THC and CBD are still THCA and CBDA which are not readily accepted into the body’s cannabinoid receptors. These precursor compounds contain 5% active THC and CBD at most. To convert the THCA and CBDA into usable THC and CBD you need to apply the correct amount of heat and time to the bud in a process called decarboxylation.
Think about decarboxylation like this: you perform decarboxylation when you vaporize or smoke cannabis directly by vaporization or burning of the plant mater. In order to prepare cannabis for oral. Sublingual or subcutaneous use you need to first activate the cannabis by way of decarboxylation.
Is Performing Decarboxylation Easy?
Honestly decarboxylation at home is a drag and not entirely effective. At home you can use your oven or a toaster oven to perform the decarboxylation process but just be warned your house is going to stink to high hell! Besides the smell, using a manual heating process will only unlock about 75% of the THC and CBD your plant contains and can destroy THC if overheated. I’ve always performed decarboxylation in my oven in the past, that is until I heard about a very unusual product launched by Shanel Lindsay of Ardentcannabis.com. The world’s first automatic home decarboxylation machine, the Lift.
The Science Is In
After years of study at MCR labs Shanel became aware of some astonishing scientific learnings about activating THC and CBD. What she found was that performing decarboxylation at home correctly is basically impossible. Using a traditional oven or toaster can produce too much or too little heat which can either leave much of the THC locked away or burn and destroy the THC molecules. There just isn’t enough heating control available with these devices.
Perfect Decarboxylation Every Time
Through research and development, the Ardent Decarboxylating product the Adrent Lift was created to make the process of decarboxylation controlled and exact every time. Ardent has found the perfect operating temperatures and even controls how fast the unit heats and cools the plant mater to maximize THC and CBD conversion.
It’s So Simple to Do
Through a lot of science and development the Ardent Lift was born and became the only way to maximize THC and CBD conversion during decarboxylation in a completely easy automated process. It really couldn’t be any easier. Just grind up your plant mater if you want to maximize the amount of cannabis you can decarboxylate per session or use full buds, it doesn’t matter. Put them into the heating canister put the two lids on and press power. That’s the whole process as far as you are concerned.
Inside the Lift absolute magic is taking place and the whole process will happen on its own without any intervention, just set and go. The Lifts will slowly heat the material to the perfect decarboxylation temperature and then slowly cool in perfectly timed co-ordination. Through perfectly designed convection movement inside the Lift all of your material will be converted to THC and CBD. Expect more than 95% of the potential THC and CBD to be converted during the decarboxylation process.
Once you press the on button the device begins its process and you expect you’ll start smelling the cannabis as it’s heated. With the Ardent Lift there was no smell at all. I didn’t even have to turn my kitchen fan on, there was just no smell which is a massive bonus.
Once the process is complete the power button on the Lift will glow green, simply take off the lids to view your completely decarboxylated bud. You’ll notice right away that the color of your bud has changed to a less green dull color, like what bud looks like after you vaporize it. Don’t worry that’s how it’s supposed to look all of the THC and CBD compounds have been activated and are ready for consumption or absorption.
Use Your Decarboxylated Cannabis for Ointments, Edibles and Infusions
Once you’ve activated the cannabinoids, they can be used to create butters, oils and infusions by adding the appropriate transport system such as alcohol or fats the THC and CBD can be absorbed by the body in a variety of ways and locations.
The Ardent Lift while simple to use is performing a miracle with your cannabis. No other process or product will unlock 99% of the THC and CBD in your cannabis. You’ll save money right from the first use of the Lift because you’ll need less cannabis to achieve the same effect.
If you are making cannabis butter, infusions or oils the Lift will unlock all of the potential of your cannabis.
The Lift is a quality made product which will enable to your process huge amounts of cannabis over its lifespan.
