  1. I'm interested in whether uk420 users making (m)edibles are decarboxylating (applying heat to speed the conversion of THCA to THC) their weed as a distinct step (eg baking weed in the oven for a period of time) prior to extracting into butter/oil or does your process of extraction (e.g. simmering for a long time in hot butter/oil) also take care of any necessary decarboxylation process? All opinions are welcome but I'm particularly interested in hearing from people who have tried both and are able to compare or those who are firmly on either side of the fence.... to decarb or not decarb... that is the question.. Full disclosure... I've recently tried to make canna coconut oil and it's been a bit disappointing in terms of potency....10g of decarboxylated weed (actual bud rather than trim) infused in about 40g/45ml of coconut oil should be quite strong and yet I needed to consume approximately 10g of canna oil (theoretically equivalent to 2.5 g bud) for a decent buzz...I've previously made better (ie more potent) canna oil using a similar quantity of ABV and oil so not sure what went wrong...
