THC activation? WTF
Posted 29 May 2008 - 03:28 AM
I mean this like eating raw weed compared to eating weed that was cooked into something.
I would really appreciate it if someone could clear this up for me.

Its called decarboxylation:
Decarboxylation is any chemical reaction in which a carboxyl group (-COOH) is split off from a compound as carbon dioxide (CO2).
And here is a page on cannabisculture.com I found about this:
this is it
i remember readoin bout it on THC Chemistry off of google
basically, ur pot has no THC in it, its all an acid form of it where theres a COOH instead of CO2 like lebowski mentioned above, once it is heated, it bcomes CO2 and that is Delta 9 THC, which is psychoactive. This is why you have to heat hash. this is why you cant eat weed and get high. this is why you have to heat weed to get high from it. Cooking it into a butter or some oil heats it up enough to convert it, same with vaporizing, i believe the temp has to be around 150-200degrees farenheit to convert it to THC.
