Q: butter/oil infusion and Decarboxylation
Dose plantmaterial Decarboxylate when infused and cooked in oil?
From Decarboxylation thread 120C for 60 - 120 min would be 'Good - Very good'
Sooo.. would cooking plantmaterial in butter or oil at 120C for 60-120 min result in THCA conversion to THC (and other things that might happen during Decarboxylation?) AND result in chemicals from plant material (THC, CBD etc.) being infused in butter/oil?
If not, please explain why this would not work.
It is my understanding that when making cannabis butter or oil infusion only part of available chemicals are transferred/attached to fats. Would it be a good plan to re-use the plant material with second patch of butter/oil? Would there be danger of over Decarboxylation of the plant material. (As the plantmaterial is already cooked once for 60-120min @ 120C .. this second cooking would push the total time to 120 - 240min at 120C and thus the second patch would run into risk of overDecarboxylation ??
How well do THC,CBD,etc. transer to oils at low temperatures like room (22C) or grow tent 27C? or cooking for well below Decarboxylation heat/ time limits? (if heat helps the transfer?)
Help, advice and links/pointers would be much appreciated.
