How to decarboxylate your flower

Activate your flower's THC and unleash its full potential through the process of "decarboxylation" before infusing it into fats; just add heat!

Set your oven at 230 degrees, and place an ounce of cannabis flower in a glass dish, and cover with a lid. Cook for 110 minutes, to ensure complete conversion of THCa to active THC! 


Cannabis-Infused Oil (coconut, olive, vegetable, avocado—your choice)


  • 1 ounce decarbed cannabis flower
  • 24 fluid ounces oil

Melt your oil in a medium sauce pan on low-medium. Place a candy thermometer in the oil and once it reads 180 degrees Fahrenheit, add your decarbed cannabis and allow it to infuse for two hours. Strain and chill in ice cube trays for easy access and dosing!


Infused Honey


  • 2 cups honey
  • 1/4 cup cannabis-infused coconut oil

Melt honey in your crock pot or on low in a small sauce pan on your stovetop. Melt your infused coconut oil separately and gradually whisk in 1 Tbsp at a time over the next 4-7 minutes.  Remove from heat, and whisk both to chill and to hold emulsification.




  • 1 quart heavy cream
  • 1 ounce decarbed cannabis trim (or 14 grams of kief)
  • 2 cups half-and-half
Combine all ingredients in a Crock Pot set to "medium," and steep for 1-3 hours to infuse. Chill & strain before serving and enjoying!
