decarb weed before smoking

Do you decarboxilate your cannabis before smoking?

The process of decarboxylating, is more or less based on the conversion of THCA to THC.

Fresh cut cannabis has little THC, it converts as it dries and cures. This is why bud keeps getting better even after it’s dry, during the curing process.

The idea is heating your bud or hash product before smoking it. The process is being able to change the structure with heat. But in turn
not destroying any or little of the cannabinoids in the deal.

I have a few ideas, I’ll present, I was wondering what a few others thought though before I present them.

I think decarboxilation is important before consuming cannabis to make the THC active and bioavailable.

It is not important before smoking or vaping it because the smoking/vaping process decarboxilates it.

I usually always microwave my bud before I smoke it. I find it increases the potency, and it seems to smoke better for me.

I’ve tried cooking it, from outside heat sources, like a toaster oven set on low etc. But while that did seem to increase the potency a bit, it made the cannabis very harsh when smoked. Microwaving if you know how to do it works very well.
