You can increase potency by baking your weed before smoking it.

and I pasted some of it here:
"Well I was reading one of Shroomie Of Doomie's post and it said that baking weed in the oven until in will crumble into dust when pinched will increase potentcy. This is true? any drawbacks? "
" Yes its true. Last time I bought some herb, me and a friend went in on a half oz, and none of it was smoked unless it was cooked first. Cooking at about 240-260F for 10-15 minutes converts more of the non-actives into THC, thus creating a higher potency. If you're hesitant to "waste" any weed, just try it with 1 bowl, 2 if you're a daily smoker. Smoke it, and let it hit you. I bet that you'll realize that you haven't been that high in a long time(unless you smoke hash also).
Not really any drawbacks from this, except you gotta be more careful when you load the bowl so that you don't crumble it all up. And the smoke doesn't taste as fresh as when smoking non-baked herb, but it's definitely worth it. Try it out man, you'll be glad you did. Theres people on here that say they always bake their weed, and I'm one of them. But I don't smoke anymore, I mainly just cook with it. But seriously, TRY IT "
" I remember once making a joint from some left-over weed from my Hookah - I had left one of the hot stones sitting over it for awhile, but ended up not smoking it, so the hot rock was just heating it
the entire time (not on purpose, I just didnt get around to smoking). Few days later I was out of weed and looking for scraps for anything to smoke. Rolled a joint from that stuff - and it got me the
most ripped I had been in a LONG time.
Never occured to me to try simply baking my weed in the oven for a bit -- I may try this soon "

CBD is the precursor to THC. CBD is indeed turned into thc at a certain level of heat. But at the same time, you could be transferring some THC into CBN, or just plain losing some cannabinoids in the oven.
I'll stick to Not baking my herb. Interesting post tho.
Edit: we should get our temperatures straight. some people are speakin in different terms.
Boiling point: 157*C / 314.6 degree Fahrenheit
Boiling point: 160-180*C / 320-356 degree Fahrenheit
Boiling point: 185*C / 365 degree Fahrenheit

i thought thc vaporizes at 200 degrees ...i read that in making hash from kif with an iron....but maybe that "fact" i read wasnt correct
Perfectly said. It does begin to vaporize at 200 degrees and if it is cooked for 10-15 whole minutes at around 250 it will be worthless weed...no THC in it anymore so it is definately bullshit and a waste of weed.

yessur. my information was taken from this study
Dude, he just said above your post that delta9 THC boils (vapes) at 314.6. I don't see any reason he'd just make those numbers up so they are probably correct. Besides, 200 degrees F is really, really low.
however it begins to vaporize at lower temps. you just dont see a substantial transfer until 314.6
In a recent study, traces of THC were vaporized at temperatures as low as 140°C (284°F)
and the majority of THC vaporized by 185°C (365°F);

sounds interesting. lets hear some results. if that is in fact true then maybe that explains why the roach of a joint is so much more potent. i have read that heating weed to a certain temp can change the CBN and CBD into THC and give u a dif high. i dunno if that applies to smoking but im interesting in hearing some results. u gotta back this shit up with proof before i risk wasting my weed
could u send me a link where u read about how diff temps. change the CBN and CBD into THC to produce a different high. that sounds very intresting

i think the reason people think its soo good is when its that dry it burns really fast and gives u huge hits. same amount of thc, just more per hit...
could be a good thing could be bad depending on the # of people smoking and how much herb u got.
thats what i think too...very dry weed smokes way easier...thats why shake will often get you more higher then the actual nugs.
