Once you've decarbed your bud, the sky's the limit with what you can do. If you are decarbing with a Nova, you're getting a fully activated product which means you'll be getting a more accurate and potent dosage. Here's a short list of some of our favorite post-decarb fixes. Feel free to share your own in the comments below.
1. Instant Edible Capsules
Pairing cannabis with other vitamins and nutraceuticals is a great way to enhance its benefits and create medicine personally tailored for optimal health and wellness. We make it easy with preloaded nutrient capsules to match with your favorite strain to create an instant and complete therapy. Formulations featured above - fish oil and melatonin, best paired with decarbed indica for sleep (blue capsule); coconut oil and b-12 vitamin, best paired with a decarbed sativa for energy (red capsule).

2. Facial Toner
Did you know that a simple tincture of properly decarbed cannabis and rubbing alcohol is a powerful antibacterial and antiseptic?
Clinical studies show, "Cannabinoids are powerful antioxidants that may work by reducing inflammation and especially when combined with hydrating oils may help in maintaining the skin's natural barrier function." Use it just like you would any other toner with a cotton ball or pad for a quick cleanse.
3. Pain Salve
Cannabis infused topicals are known to have relaxing, anti-inflammatory, and regenerative properties that can be used for painful joint and minor skin issues. To prepare cannabis infused salve at home, mix your decarboxylated cannabis and coconut oil together over a low flame to cook for 5 minutes to infuse the oil. Strain the material with cheese cloth and add 5 parts infused oil to 1 part beeswax. Once it's hardened, you can rub it onto the problem area. You'll notice an immediate relief.
4. Medicated Massage Oil
Did we mention there are endless ways to use your decarbed bud? Used as sensual massage oils you'll experience a completely different buzz.
Here's how to make your own.
