What does "Decarboxylate" mean?

Definition: Decarboxylation of marijuana involves exposure of the cannabinoids to extremely hot temperatures (like smoking), thus removing the acidic component of the compound and converting it into a more desired cannabinoid. Acidic compounds such as THCA and CBDA are transformed into THC and CBD respectively. Once cannabis decarboxylated, it can be used in edibles or tinctures.

Example usage for Decarboxylate

"How many ways can you decarboxylate some cannabis product? I'm curious, you know, for science."
