Decarbing for health.

I'm completely new to this. And I know that for specific health issues you need certain types. I have someone who has lots of pain, on lots of medicine, and has extremely high anxiety. They tried cbd with no help. I think he doesn't need cbd, and so I'm gonna give it a go at edibles like gummies and maybe sugars. I have a hybrid that's 55% indica and 45% saliva. For a first time try I only have .5 Oz. And no fancy equipment. It's been 200 ish and 27 minutes. It crumbles very nicely but when it cools it feels somewhat moist. Or not quite as dry. How do you know if you have adequately decarbed?

I have no idea but I e decarbed cannabis about 3 times now and according to everyone that has ate my cookies it works

I just put on baking sheet with parchment paper and bake around 230-240 degrees for 30-35 mins
Just got done running about 80 grams
Oz "Red Runtz"
Oz "Forbidden Fruit"
20 grams of "Skunk #1"

I've been decarbing for a few years. 225-240 for 35 minutes... 40 minutes. Works great. Hard to trust it wo equipment but every time I get really nice butter from this method. (The butter comes after the decarb). Butter in crock pot on low for 3 hours... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!! Don't forget to put the decarb'd cannabis in the crock pot :)

They make Silicon boxes like the one that goes with the Magical Butter Machine

It seals and limits the smell, not smell proof
Cook something on the stovetop and that will cover the smell
If you have the money a unit like the Ardent FX can limit the odor

Set it in a little used room with the window open and exhaust fan if handy

It’s a smelly process sometimes. Small amounts in a mason jar can work. I’ve been Decarbing kief most recently, and I’ve left it in the jar with little smell. After 30-35 minutes in the oven, I add the oil directly to the jar for the infusion process. This would be harder with lots of buds, which also smell and taste more than kief. If you have some extra sitting around, you might try that as well. Good luck.
