What Is CBD?
CBD or cannabidiol is extracted from the Sativa plan to the cannabis group. It is the safest form of cannabis, unlike marijuana which can be intoxicating as well.
It goes and reacts with the cannabinoid receptors, which are known for sending that relaxing sensation through your body.
Why Do You Need To Cook A CBD Flower?
In simple chemistry terms, you need to conduct decarboxylation in a flower. This means you have to provide heat in the herb so that the carbon bonds in the compound break.
This will help the chemicals to ooze out, giving you a better effect on the CND oil inside.
Now when you are smoking it or vaping it through a machine, this activity already occurs with the heat produced.
How To Cook CBD Flower?
Now, if you are planning to cook a CBD flower, there are some processes and mechanisms which you need to know first.
– First, you need to cook it in oil. The oil can be preferably any edible oil of your choice. You will cook the CBD flower in the oil for one to two minutes at a temperature of 240 degrees celsius.
– Second, you will strain the oil from the CND flower and then also strain some of the excess oil with the help of a blotting tissue.
– Third, once all that is done, you will need to let your CBD flower dry before you can use it to make edibles.
Now, the heat is a big deal when it comes to cooking CBD flowers. 240-degree celsius is the benchmark. If you overheat, the flower might start losing its properties.
