Does a high CBD/ low THC strain have to be decarboxylized first

before extracting the cbd? I’m planning on using a slow cooker and coconut oil to make skin creams, salves, and edibles. If I have to decarboxylize , I thought it would at least be fair to warn the wife and dog before I stink up the house. Thanks for any advice.

High Times reports a Dutch group figured out 110 C for 110 minutes works best. That’s 230 F. Your slow cooker might not get that hot. But if it is boiling for a bit longer it might get it all decarbed.
