Do I need an electrical converter outside of the U.S.?
Our current Precision Decarboxylator is US 110v and 90 watts and requires a step-down converter to work on 220v (standard us hertz). We highly recommend buying a good quality converter.
How long does it take to ship?
Our regular shipping option takes 2-3 weeks, and the expedited option takes 1 week.
Does decarbing cannabis make it more potent when you go to smoke it?
Yes, it increases cannabinoid availability for smoking or vaping.
So it's a small oven that gets hot enough to decarb your flowers so you can eat them straight?
Yes, but unlike an oven it uses a perfect heating arc to decarb right every time. Flower is instantly edible and patients can make sublingual packs and topicals too.
How much can it decarb at a time?
1/4 to 1 ounce of flower (depending on the density of the bud) or 3-5oz of kief.
Do you need to break up the bud to expose more surface area to allow the inside of the nug to be decarbed as well?
The NOVA™ design maintains a decarb zone with precise, even heat distribution that surrounds and penetrates the buds, so in the plant material there's no need to disturb the buds prior to decarbing. If it's a particularly dense nug, you could break it down into a few smaller pieces but no need to crush and disturb trichomes by grinding.
How big is it?
7.5" x 4"
Can you decarb concentrate?
Yes, you'll want to put it in a silicone canister first.
How long does it take to decarb?
A complete cycle with cool down is approximately 90 minutes to two hours.
How does it affect terpenes?
The NOVA™ uses the lowest possible temp for decarb while still maintaining the max amount of terps. The container is airtight preventing escape.
