Decarboxylation in H20

High y'all. I'm currently in the process of making canna coconut oil for some chocolates. I use at least a couple of ounces of trim for a batch of 24 chocolates. I do this often, probably at least once every two weeks, so I know it is effective. First I take the trim and put it in a crockpot with water WITHOUT oils. I let almost all the water evaporate off, then I strain and rinse the trim until the water runs clear. Then I put in fresh water and the coconut oil and run the crock until the water/oil has almost disappeared. I then squish the mix in a potato ricer through a strainer. I'll then run hot water through the mix and re-squish a couple of times. cool it in the fridge, re melt in hot water and swirl to clean. yada yada yada. It all works well.

One thing I don't KNOW is if the THCa gets decarbed in the hot water bath. It is h 2 O(xygen) after all.

I have also taken to acidifying the water on the last rinse to increase the polarity of the water, just to (in my theory) help clean the oil. I've read that acidification will decarb. True?

Thanks y'all!

i simply slow boil my canna and coconut oil with water for 3 - 4 hours, strain, cool for oil to solidify, remove water, reheat oil with sunflower lecithin till dissolved, filter and store...

i never decarb before hand...never have...didn't even know about decarbing till a few years ago...

Decarboxylation takes place at temperatures above the boiling point of water.

So this is overall a bad idea.

Also oils and water don't mix well so this is another strike against you.

I'll pass.

sorry that was the point i was trying to make..the process i use decarbs...i don't do it separately

thats the point...oil and water don't mix making it easy to chill and remove the water once the oil sets...

strike against me...good on ya...been doing this for over 30 years with butter and now coconut oil...

So you decarboxylate your buds by boiling them in water?

it happens faster above 212F, but also occurs below that. And since liquids transmit heat MUCH more effectively than water, it should be done in a fraction of the time indicated with this chart.

interesting, wonder how well it preserves terpenes
which could be quite an advantage if if it does
