    I am planning to buy this device but my question is this:

    Will this improve my vaping experience with Mighty? If I decarb my flower and then put them into Mighty, will it make my flower more potent and have a better vaping experience? Or is Mightys vaporization enough?

    don't know about a Mighty, but my vape is definitely enough ... only a very slightly better buzz after decarboxylation.

    but device is perfect for making RSO. i do a decarb before the ethanol extraction and it works very well ... the ethanol can extract better from the somewhat crispy herb.

    My understanding it that if you are smoking or vaping no decarbing is necessary.

    @Krazy has it right, decarbing works for edibles and such that wouldn't reach temps enough for the process. Smoking and vaping does it during the smoking/vaping.

    My edibles were meh before, now my cookies rock!

    Is it true there is no need to cook bud into oil after using this product?

    I usually use low temp with crock pot and infuse into coconut oil.

    I decarb before infusing my oil. It makes my baked goods more potent. I also add soy lecitin(sp?) to my oil which also increases potency.

    Hi, new here just wanted to report that this thread was instrumental in me getting one of these units. The wait for one is quite long. Sep 21st till Nov 3rd. Wow. I'll tell you though. I ran a batch through and for the first time (I tried in my oven twice) I have results that LOOK like what I see pictures of what decarbed should look like. I tried to keep oven temp stable and even though it is a brand new kitchen oven, it varied so much I thought I'd burn it. So I'm sure it was never fully decarbed. I'm running that small batch of canna coconut oil right now and I'm keeping my fingers crossed..

    As mentioned before, I effectively tested mine to destruction, lol. Ran many many capacity loads without cool down period in between. Even if we disregard the potential stress of lack of cool down and high capacity runs? I got the equivalent of years worth of normal consumers use out of mine.

    That said; You are combining electronics, heat, and your stash. So if you don't supervise and end up destroying a lot of bud? It's on you.

    Well, my first results were encouraging. I probably was not doing the kitchen oven decarbing anywhere near correctly. After using the Nova my cannacoconutoil was appox twice as strong as my previous attempt. Previously I had to use a tablespoon. Now it's a teaspoon. So that's a big deal to me. You know, I think that's a reason many don't get involved with edibles. I mean, you KNOW if you smoke it, vape it, it works.

    I'm in Oregon and even here if you BUY it, it's about $300 a oz. You grow it and you are obviously have a much better chance to play with edibles. We get to grow 4 plants here legally. I just grew 4 and I get a pretty good yield. Enough for me to make enough edibles to last until the next 90 day cycle by far. I can make tincures too which is nice.

    I actually prefer the feeling vs smoking and vaping. Lasts a long long time.
