Decarboxylation is a simple process during which cannabis is treated with heat or it is aged to activate its psychoactive and relaxing effects. This process also happens naturally when cannabis dries and ages. That’s right – despite what you may have heard, raw cannabis doesn’t actually contain any psychoactive compounds. The psychoactive ingredient THC only activates when cannabis undergoes heat treatment or when it dries and ages, though it’s important to note that the decarboxylation effect is much stronger when heated rather than when aged.

Time to test your brownies for dosage and taste. Mine had a very slight earthy taste initially but after a slug of milk, the second bite was not. First things first and what not to do! Don’t eat it all at once and don’t expect it to kick in as it does if you smoke the weed so eat half then after you start to feel its effect eat the other half if needed. It can take between one and two hours to feel the full effect but what’s nice is the buzz lasts longer and you can sleep when you need I just got very mellow for about 4 hours after it kicked in. I will caution that this method will make you very amorous so you may want to have your brownie party with a partner.
Make your cannabutter I found this to be the best method around.
Follow the instructions on the brownie mix box to make the brownies. You can also infuse butter if you want to follow the recipe on the box but I see no reason to.
Well, it’s been about a week since I made my brownies and the process could not be easier. It took the longest amount of time to infuse the coconut oil (about 2 hours). The only thing I would add is to have a second pot of water boiling and ready to add to the pot that has the Oil and cabanas. I used an 8 oz canning jar for the tea bag made from cheesecloth folded once be sure to squeeze out the tea bag because it has the most THC.
