Default Decarboxylation of cannabis

Sorry if this question is stupid, but is it possible for the buds to change color on the plant while flowering or is drying/curing the best method for decarboxylation of cannabis ?

Thx

Yes.
And probably.
Cooking it or burning it in a joint or vape will do it for you

Just to clarify, decarbing and flowers changing color are completely separate issues.
Drying does not decarb the acid form of the cannabinoids into the form where they are psychoactively available without burning or vaping (edible).
To convert THCA to THC, add heat.
There are lots of threads on the web for making cannabutter or infusing coconut oil or making tinctures that cover details of process, duration and temp.

Heating too hot or too long = bad.

Thanks for this precision, Old Spice. I seem to have some troubles to properly convert THCA into THC. I guess I did my smoke tests too early or have improperly dried the test buds. So far I have learned the hard way that THC synthesis is a delicate process...

Peace,

Burning the resin decarbs it on the spot.
But, if your flower is wet, or otherwise unburnable, you may not mav a very satisfying experience.

If you are trying to dry herb in a humid environment, it may never get there.
RH needs to be around 55% to do the job.

Is that what's going on brother?

Yes bro. I need to understand how to increase THC(A) levels. I can tell THCA is being converted to THC in my smoke tests but the resulting head trip is really weak so far. I guess its probably the genetics of my plant or improper drying/cure.

Is it true that as the plant matures it will produce a more distinctive physical high?

yes

when the trichome heads turn amber , thats a sign that cbd and thc has been converted to cbn, which makes for a stoned downer non psychoactive high
