Decarb Smackdown #2

In the last episode of extrakTALKS, the decarboxylation process was discussed and why it is so vitally important to hemp and cannabis extraction. The entire process is essential to create products that are effectively absorbed in the human body. Apart from this, decarboxylation when performed prior to the actual extraction process increases the efficiency of extraction by increasing throughput in a reduced run time, and allowing for the best possible terpene collection in your operation. When performed properly, decarboxylation, coupled with the right equipment, can be the best time to collect those valuable terps without degrading them during extraction. In this episode of extrakTALKS, Dr. Jon and Randall Thompson follow up and discuss this important topic and how to utilize it to your advantage.
