When it comes to decarboxylating cannabis, the lower the temperature you use, the longer the process is going to take. However, this is not a bad thing! Using a lower temperature throughout the decarboxylation process will result in less terpenes being lost due to degradation. We suggest a 2-step method. First at 225° F / 110° C for about 20 minutes; and then at 240° F / 115° C for another 50-90 minutes.
