Posted on October 04 2023
Ever wondered how compounds in your favorite herbs are produced for medical use?
A recent study looks at the science of decarboxylation, the process that transforms inactive compounds into active ones. Researchers explored various temperatures and times to optimize this conversion.
This breakthrough research sheds light on efficient production and introduces a precise method for measuring these valuable compounds.
Do you want to learn how to decarb your herbs at the perfect decarb temperature at home?
ONGROK is here to help you with tips for using the Decarboxylation kit and how it will be useful for you.
Now you can do it at home with the best Decarboxylator machine from ONGROK.
Introduction to Decarboxylation
Decarboxylation is heating herbs to a temperature that activates the compounds in your favorite herbs.
Decarboxylation is essential to making edibles, topicals, and other herb products.
Decarboxylation is a crucial step in enjoying the benefits of herbs. In its natural state, the plant contains a molecular bond, which won’t be absorbed in the stomach.
To activate the compounds in herbs, you need to decarboxylate them at the perfect decarb temperature. This process removes the extra carboxyl ring in its chemical structure through heat or time, making it available for digestion.
Decarboxylation can preserve active compounds and terpenes in the herbs, making for a more enjoyable experience. The ideal temperature for decarboxylation is between 200-250 ºF.
Most people use heat to decarboxylate herbs, which can happen through combustion, vaporization, or even baking edibles. You must decarb the buds before infusing them into a medium like butter or oil when making edibles.
How to Decarboxylate?
Decarbing is a process that can be easy or difficult, depending on how you go about it.
To decarb herbs using the oven, preheat it to 220°F (105°C), spread the herbs on a baking sheet, and bake for about 30-45 minutes until they become slightly brown and fragrant. Remember to constantly monitor the herbs in the oven closely to avoid overcooking.
If you want an easier more efficient way to get the most out of your herbs - you can invest in a Decarboxylator Machine.
A Decarboxylator Machine is a device that removes the carboxyl group from an organic compound.
The process of decarboxylation is often used in organic chemistry. Decarboxylation can also be used to make food taste better or to make it easier to digest.

Tips For Using Your Decarboxylation Kit Successfully
If you're a culinary enthusiast looking to infuse your recipes with the goodness of herbs, a decarboxylation kit can be your best friend.
Here are some valuable tips for using your decarboxylation kit successfully to ensure you achieve the desired results.
Know What Temperature You Need
One of the reasons people need clarification on decarbing is because it is more than just an on/off process.
The perfect decarb temperature to which you set your oven will impact decarboxylation. This is important, especially with an electric oven, which could make gauging the exact temperature degree a little tricky.
Trial and error are expected; to ensure you eventually get it to the desired point, record the temperature at which you achieved the best decarb.
Store Your Decarbed Herbs Properly
Storing your herbs properly is the best way to ensure they stay fresh and maintain their aroma.
