Ok! so I set it and forget it. I literally forgot it…
I was making cannabutter in a slow cooker and fell asleep.
1oz of cannabis flower, 4 COSTCO bricks of butter at 175 °f for 12 hours. I ment to cook it for 5 hours without decarbonating it. I infusion with butter right away and heat it longer instead.
I was so sad that I just wasted all that butter and my time going to Costco and krazy covid line ups.
I think I’m still good when I saw this chart:
Then I saw this on another blog…
"At what temperature does THC oil boils
THC has a boiling point of 200°C (392°F). However before the THC boils, other parts of the oil evaporate and boil.
Here are some important temperatures: At 21°C (70°F) the most volatile terpenoids start to evaporate, lending a pungent odor to the air.
At 31°C (87°F) the less volatile terpenoids start to evaporate, lending the air even more pungent odors.
At 39°C (102°F ) vir tually all of the terpenoids undergo evaporation fairly rapidly.
At 50°C (122°F) THC-Acid decarboxylates as the water molecule held in the carbonate form evaporates. This activates the THC.
At 66°C (150°F) Cannabidiol (CBD) melts and starts to evaporate.
At 185°C (365°F) Cannibinol (CBN) boils.
At 200°C (392°F) THC boils."
What are your thoughts on this?
Will this butter still have it’s effects?
Is 5 hours of heat not long enough when skipping the decarbonate process?
First time growing and cooking
