Decarbing your bud in an air fryer

Okay folks!

My oven Isn’t working.

Soooo… I’ve been doing a ton of research online about how to decarb some bud in my air fryer (for use in making edible oil, after). There are quite a few vids and articles out there on how to do this, what to put the bud in and how to seal it up (ideas ranging from a foil package, foil covered baking dish, mason jar etc.) but… the time varies a bunch, from 240° for 30 minutes, all the way up to 260° for an hour.

Anyone done this, successfuly? Then made the oil in a crockpot, with the decarbed bud, after? I’m looking for pain relief where I can still function throughout the day. Nothing that’s going to put me to sleep. (I’ve made 3, 6, 9 & 12 hour oils before.)

I came here to see if there was an easy answer, (mostly about time/temps) and it looks like there is only one post on here about it with those keywords.

Also, hey! I’ve missed this forum, it’s been a minute!

Got a new grow starting soon, just harvested my last one a couple/few weeks ago, but didn’t document it in here this time. (It’s been a busy year.)

Anyhow, thanks, all!

Great to be back! :grin::grin::grin::grin::grin:



I have never decarbed in an air fryer but have had great success in an oven. I like to go roughly off this chart.
I like to set the oven to 240. Once the oven is up to temp K set the cannabis on a cookie sheet lined with foil. I don’t grind the bud up I just lightly break it apart. I set the bud in the oven for about 50 minutes.
If I’m doing hash also I will add it onto the flower after the first 10 minutes. Allowing the hash to declare for 40 minutes and the flower for 50.


Thank you @HippieRunner1

I’ve not thought about the hot water bath!

Well… I’ve gotten some input on the air fryer method, so I’ll go ahead and try it out this evening or tomorrow and report back with the results.

Thanks a bunch for the chart! :blush:

I use my oven at 235° for about 45 minutes, then give it a shake and give it another 5 at 245°

I expect in an air fryer since it’s just a convection oven, you could do a similar thing in about half the time. I’d probably start at 230° for 15-20 and then toss the buds, cook em again at 240° for another 5-10 and check to see if they visually appear decarbed or not.
