2. Decarboxylation Process
One of the most common processes in making some edibles like weed brownies is the decarboxylation process. Before you even put all the needed ingredients together, for the weed brownies to be an effective edible, and can give you the high as you wished for in the first place, the first thing you need to accomplish is the decarbed weed.
This process is simply exposing the weed to extreme heat for its cannabinoid composition to get activated which in the later of eating can get you high. The THCA component of the weed which is the non-psychoactive substance found in dried cannabis can get activated and can be in a psychoactive form as soon as it gets exposed to a specified temperature.
