    HELP! De- carbing

    I have (hopefully!) de-carbed two lots of weed, but in neither case did the weed turn light brown, even with extra time.
    Could someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
    Thank you,

    It never turned light brown. Maybe actually a little greener and darker. What temp u running and for how long?


      Hi. The temperature I Use is 120 deg C.for about forty minutes.

        That's what I use for temp and time. 250 degrees for 45 min. Definitely turns brown. That's right from the GWE website.

      I do mine at 300°F for 35 mins.
      Can you post a pic. Was it dried and cured or fresh harvest?

        I would think you would have to dry and cure first.

        I personally have never tried to decarb fresh weed before so I don't know for sure, maybe some of the more experienced folks here can answer. I would also be interested as I make a lot of caps.

      Mine always turns brown after decarb in the oven.
