    There is a lot of information out there on how to decarb to deal with CBD and THC.

    However, I have not yet found a good write up on how to properly decaboxylate THCVa to THCV.

    I would appreciate and sources folks can provide.

    I would not go over 225 F 245 F max, just leave THCv varietals in the oven longer than 45 minutes... maybe one full hour or even 2 hours... that thcv should heat release @ some point but 448 F is the boiling point of thcv... anything over 245 you will start to release all the other actives in there that get evaporated into your oven.. maybe a Nova would be better to decarb THCV

    I recently made a batch of tincture using Durban Poison flower that i decarbed in a mason jar that I left in boiling water for 2 hours. This method seems to work ok. I added a bit of ABV (vaped at 190C)

    Anyhow, i used some of the tincture last night and felt full after having a salad for for dinner and without getting completely baked. I also used this with some commercial CBD tincture I bought. That is kind of the effect I was hoping for.
