To prevent this from happening you will need to combine the cannabis with a fat during a decarb session to release the potent compounds of the plant into something you can use. You can use butter or a light oil. This is a necessary step for both concentrates and flowers. However, if you use a cannabis tincture meant to be used with beverages, you can skip this step.
