What is Decarboxylation?

Decarboxylation is sometimes referred to as “activating” the cannabinoids found in hemp. It is a chemical reaction that happens during or immediately after the extraction process. The most common method is by heating CBD-a to 248°F, the most efficient temperature for this process. When CBD-a reaches 248°F the carboxyl group (COOH) breaks away and is replaced by a hydrogen atom. This step is important, as the decarboxylation of CBD-a to CBD is critical to ensuring that the CBD present in our products have the desired effects within the endocannabinoid system.
