These headlines are brought to you by the fine folks at Ardent, makers of the Nova, the high tech, easy-to-use decarboxylator that quickly turns any cannabis product- flower, concentrate, or oil, into a form that’s ready to eat. Decarboxylation is the process of turning raw marijuana into its active bioavailable form and no device on the market does it easier than the Ardent Nova. Just pop in your product, push a button, and forget it- in just a short time you’ll have properly decarboxylated marijuana ready for consumption in whatever form you like- add to food to eat, grind it up in pills, or toss it in a smoothie.
