Hey,
right after I took this pictures I harvested her. 13 weeks are over and her trichomes are 75% milky and 25% amber. Her hairs are still mostly white and that is a little confusing to me. She has a really sweet smell.

The Knowledge Grow!
Every week i'm going to add 1 interesting fact about plants, growing, or scientists that helped us to understand the flora.

Decarboxylation

cannabis.

The process involves applying low heat for an extended period of time to convert cannabis’ non-intoxiating THCA into THC, the cannabinoid known for its psychoactive effects. Without decarboxylation, the effects of DIY edibles may be weak or lackluster, at best.
Decarboxylation is easy enough to do at home using tools you likely already have in the kitchen. Beyond the basic oven method, here you’ll also find instructions for decarbing in a mason jar and by sous vide, which are excellent alternatives for those concerned about the pungent scent of cannabis cooking.

Oven

Baking tray (preferably Pyrex)

Aluminium foil or parchment paper

Cannabis

Directions
Set your oven temperature to 225 degrees Fahrenheit and place the oven rack in the middle position. Ovens are hotter at the top and cooler at the bottom, placing it in the middle will ensure that you are decarboxylating at the ideal temperature.
Cut a piece of aluminium foil to the size of your baking sheet and lightly crumple it, then lay it across the baking sheet. This will minimize the direct contact of the cannabis to the baking sheet, which conducts heat better than aluminium foil and will get hotter than the air in the oven.
Lightly break up the cannabis until it is about the size of a grain of rice, too fine of a grind increases the risk of burning. Spread the cannabis across the aluminium foil, then lightly lay another piece of aluminium foil on top. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 45 minutes.
After 45 minutes, remove the baking sheet from the oven and let it cool for 30 minutes at room temperature. The cannabis should look lightly toasted and golden brown.
When it is cool enough to handle, carefully put your decarboxylated cannabis into a storage container to use for future cooking.

Mason jar

Mason jar with lid
Baking tray
Kitchen towel
Cannabis
Oven gloves

Set your oven between 220 and 240 degrees Fahrenheit and place the oven rack in the middle position.
Break up the cannabis until it’s about the size of a grain of rice, put it into the mason jar and lightly screw on the lid.
Lightly wet the kitchen towel and lay it over the baking sheet then put the mason jar on the towel. The damp towel will help anchor the jar to the baking sheet and keep it from falling over.
Place the baking tray in the oven and bake for 60 minutes. Every 15 minutes, carefully remove the mason jar from the oven with the oven gloves and give it a shake to disperse the cannabis evenly.
After 60 minutes, remove the jar from the oven, and let cool for 30 minutes before storing or using it for cooking.

How to decarb by sous vide

Immersion circulator
Container for immersion circulator (a large pot or plastic tub would work)
Vacuum sealer or zip-top freezer bag
Cannabis

Prepare your water bath by filling your container with hot tap water, then place the immersion circulator inside. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure the right amount of water is in the container. Set the immersion circulator to 203 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grind the cannabis finely. Since the temperature will be so precise, there is no need to worry about overheating the cannabis and destroying THC, terpenes, or flavour. You do, however, want to maximize surface area, so a finer grind is the best for this method.
In a vacuum sealer or, using the water displacement method* in a zip-top plastic bag, seal the cannabis as flat and as tight as possible to minimize air pockets and maximize surface area.
Place the sealed cannabis bag into the water bath for 90 minutes, then carefully remove and let it cool to room temperature for 15-20 minutes. Dry off the bag carefully, open it and place your decarboxylated cannabis into a container for future cooking.

See you next week.
