Heating Up Hemp
There are a number of instances where heating up hemp can deliver valuable outcomes. For example, one of the DIY processes for making oils from hemp relies on it. They refer to this process as decarb-ing, or decarboxylation. In short, once hemp buds reach a certain temperature, it’s benefits activate.
The same concept goes for smokable hemp. It’s not until you light the pre-roll that the flower activates. The flames are the key to unlocking its effects. It is intriguing, then, to know that noteworthy figures in cannabis culture advocate the use of a microwave to further enhance this effect.
