BadKat's CannaPharm: Cannabis World Summit Edition Vol1 Decarboxylation by BadKittySmiles

Comment and spread the word, for a chance to win a FREE BKS-signed 4/20-2013 limited edition pack of Bee Line hemp wick! This is a short video tutorial that …


  1. I'd like to use the stovetop method at 4,300 feet in elevation which maintains a temperature of 204 degrees fht at a boil … will this be high enough heat to decarboxylize my leagally procured PTSD medication? If so, how much should I adjust the time?

  2. Speed this shit up. We can clearly see that you're using Reynolds oven bags and recycled aluminum foil. You don't have to continue showing it for 10 minutes. There is 1 minute worth of good information in this long bore of a vid

  3. Hey badkittysmiles I have been a fan for a long time and have studied your methods and really appreciate the info that you share withs he world. I have pretty much quoted you before telling people that Decarboxylation starts at harvest and happens over time but can be sped up with heat. A girl I go to school with asked for my source when I said that but she wants a reliable source like university or scientific paper. Do you know where you learned that from?? Thanks in advance

  4. Merry Christmas to all,This is one of my favorite videos by Bad Kitty, and one that is greatly needed in the MJ society. I would like to take a moment and share with you what we are going through. We have been making the oil for my baby sister who has Sarcoma(cancer) and it has attacked her sinus/ brain area and at this point her right eye has turned inward due to the pressure from the tumor. It is inoperatable and is laying on her 2 corrated arties that carry the blood to the brain so surgery is not a option, our only option is the oil. Last year, they found the sarcoma for the first time and it was in her heart, a 7cm mass had grown into her heart, after surgery they could only remove 5cm and leaving behind 2cm. I helped her through the chemo( I do not support chemo)) and we treated her with medables for the nausea but doctors highly suggested her to not do the oil and so she listened to them. This time she is going the oil treatment and we are making her oil for her. The support and love that we have received from the community has been overflowing. Her cancer is so rare that the medical society just don't know what to do. (we do). This is just the begining too round 2. Any and all support, donations, advice and love and good vibes are ALWAYS welcomed. I love this Bad Kitty and your work that you share so freely makes us feel blessed to know you..

  5. You can see it's not that CBNA does not exist, it's simply not common, and because it is not considered 'valuable' at this moment it also isn't well documented or often discussed, like the remainder of the 60+ cannabinoids in cannabis.

    I am confidant if you search for CBNA, cannabinolic, cannabinol acid, you will find more than adequate literature on the cannabinoid, probably more than you could read in one sitting…. I should know, I've read it too at Kat's request over the years! ๐Ÿ™‚ – Talia

  6. And from a lab known as the Werc Shop

    "Hi ******

    The process from THCA to CBNA is exceptionally slow (if it wasn't you'd never have THCA around as it needs to remain on the plant for months, being created from the very beginning)."

  7. From Steep Hill / Halent Labs –

    "Hello ******,

    Yes, we absolutely test for CBNA in our cannabinoid/terpene profiling. Our test covers a wide range of cannabinoids and terpenoids, and additionally, we can test for molds, mycotoxins, pesticides, and residual solvents. Please contact us at the lab with any additional questions, thanks.

  8. One of our 'Team' contacted several labs last night at my request, those who have replied asserted that YES!! CBNA does exist! It's not common, and (from what I understand from Kat) it's even more rare to find on living plants because it relies on specific temperatures and air exposure (which is why it can be successfully created in the home, as well as in labs) otherwise THCA loses its carboxyl group prior to the formation of CBNA, resulting in the chain of degradation you are familiar with. -T

  9. Talia here again ๐Ÿ™‚ It's easy to find documents that don't list CBNA because it's not exactly a popular cannabinoid! There are over 60 known cannabinoids in cannabis! But it's also easy to find studies, lab analysis and documents that DO discuss CBNA. Assuming it doesn't exist simply because several documents choose to omit it, is like assuming CBD doesn't exist, simply because there are documents that mention THC and not CBD!

    But below I'll share a quote directly from Steep Hill Labs – Talia

  10. And, from the book: "Bulletin on Narcotics: Science in Drug Control"… we hope this helps clear things up! – Talia

    "Qualitative analyses of cannabis grown in Morocco using HPLC-DAD provided chromatographic profiles giving a clearer picture of cannabinoid composition of the plant, dominated by the acid forms (CBDA, THCA, and CBNA) along with the corresponding decarboxylated forms (CBD, THC, and CBN)."

  11. "As the THCA degrades in the plant, cannabinol acid (CBNA) will form. These acidic forms of cannabinoids are considered to be inactive because they donโ€™t have the desired effects when ingested due to the carboxyl group on the acidic cannabinoids." digitalissue(dot)phoenixnewtimes(dot)com/display_article(dot)php?id=1374151

  12. "THCA, CBDA and CBNA, and Their Effects: Other cannabinoids also first take shape as acid forms, such as CBD-carboxylic acid (CBDA) for cannabidiol (CBD), and CBN-carboxylic acid (CBNA) for cannabinol (CBN) and follow the same process. " cannabis(dot)info/USA/library/7188-cannabis-decarboxylation/

  13. You need to hit up Google! ๐Ÿ™‚ – Talia

    "When the plant develops THCA, it usually will be converted to THC as a result of heat or UV light. That being said, THCA can be converted to CBNA over time as well. Prolonged exposure to air causes the THCA to lose hydrogen molecules and oxidize; now we have CBNA. Just like the rest of the acidic cannabinoids, CBNA will convert to cannabinol (CBN) when exposed to heat or UV light." medicaljane(dot)com/2013/08/19/cannabinol-cbn-will-put-you-to-bed/

  14. first of all, thanks so much for the video. My only question is after the decarboxylation, how long do you recommend cooking it if you're going to make butter?

  15. I used this method exactly to make the oil for my arthritis, and it WORKS like magic! I couldn't believe how quickly it kicked in and how long the releif lasted! Thank you BKS!! You are my Goddess!

  16. So at the end of the video, all those different ways of sealing the plant material are supposed to be cooked? Is there a video showing how much coco oil/butter to add, and how long to cook?

  17. The founder of the Cannabis World Summit specifically requested that BadKat provide a tutorial including oven bags, which are specifically meant for cooking (and at MUCH higher temps than any of us ever use! This is the same material used for vaporizer bags, by the way ๐Ÿ˜‰ ).
