Firecracker Question.
    #11380270 - 11/03/09 11:36 PM (8 years, 7 months ago)

I have read recipes where people heat the weed at a low temperature for about 10 mins to turn the inactive ingredients into active ingredients.

Is this not done during the regular cooking process?

Is it really helpful to heat the weed for like 10 mins at 250 before mixing with peanut butter and cooking?

I think the real reason people do the pre-baking is to have the weed become very very brittle so that it breaks into tiny pieces and therefore larger surface area before you put it into the peanut butter.

Does it not increase potency?

Should the weed be covered completely in aluminum foil or just on the top of a piece?

Will a regular grinder not work efficiently enough?

Well if you are baking the weed it's obviously going to AT LEAST reach the temperature of the pre-baking process so thinking it's going to further "increase" potency doesn't make sense.

A grinder is definitely efficient enough, but the smaller the better.

I think most people just have the weed on top of some aluminum foil.

I think most people collectively waste a lot of herb when attempting to infuse thc with mediums like butter or peanut butter. I've never heard of heating up weed to 250
degrees prior to anything. That's the last thing I think I would do. If I were you and I had a tiny amount of herb to work with(>1/8 oz), I would grind it up and mix it with some alcohol like 151 or another high proof. Let it sit for at least an hour or so(longer the better up to 3 months).keep in mind the less alcohol you use, the more potent the end result as there is less volume .That is how you make a tincture.

yeah ive always preheated just on top of aluminum foil. I dont know if it helps or not because ive always preheated like you said. When I researched alot on past threads b4 making any I came to the conclusion it would be better to preheat. Theres some very knowledgeable poster's who reccomended preheating and explained why and I think there was even a link to scientific article about the process that occurs to make it more potent. You just have to search and see if you can find it.

THC boils at 315 degrees F.  Usually things will evaporate even before their boiling temperatures, so I can't tell you exactly when you will start to lose potency, but by 315F you will basically turn your weed into useless plant material.  I wouldn't heat it at all, personally, but whatever floats your boat.  I don't believe you will increase potency.

Wrap lightly in aluminum foil, 200 degrees for 10 minutes if it's regular Cannabis, then smoke it. Many people, myself included, notice a difference in potency depending on the Cannabis. Whatever it does it doesnt make it any weaker.

I've wondered the same thing about pre-baking it before making Firecrackers though. Not sure if it actually makes a difference if you are going to bake it but I usually do it anyways. Have read posts from others who do the same thing.




strange never heard that. It almost sounds worth trying.

wow...in regards to posts on preheating, this is necessary for converting THCA to THC.

without preheating, you'd be making a much less efficient firecracker...
