Cannabinoids are natively present in the fresh plant in acid form. Treating the plant material at very low temperatures and away from sunlight, ensures better preservation of the acid molecules, which maintain their structure without degradation.
With the ingestion of the fresh plant, acid cannabinoids perform an activity on our cells that is completely different from what cannabinoids produce in neutral form. When still in acid form, d-9-THC does not produce narcotic effects and mainly has an anti-inflammatory activity. The activities of acid phytocannabinoids are so powerful and different from those of neutral forms that have been patented.
Temperature, together with light, is responsible for the change in shape of the phytocannabinoids; for this reason, hemp must be used fresh if you want to enhance the health properties of acid cannabinoids.
A widely used way is to add it to smoothies, centrifuges or juices and eaten fresh, alternatively preserved by freezing. The strong and spicy flavor of hemp must be mixed with other equally powerful foods or essences, in order to make the final drink acceptable and even pleasant.
Decarboxylation is the process by which hemp acid cannabinoids are transformed into neutral molecules. The temperature of 140 ° C applied for 15 minutes converts the cannabinoids from acid to neutral.
