1. Decarboxylate some cannabis
The first, most essential step in making edibles (besides getting some weed) is to decarboxylate it. Decarboxylation refers to a process that activates the compounds in cannabis, and converts THCA into THC, allowing you to get high. The key ingredient is heat, and to decarboxylate your weed all you need is to grind some up and put it on some foil or a baking sheet in the oven for about 30-45 minutes at around 220-245°F (105-120°C). Just make sure to keep an eye on it so it doesn’t get too hot.
