I have used sous vide method to decarb cannabis in a similar way... ALSO....you can sous vide cannabutter.. mix your flower and oil recipe and cook at 185degress for 4 hours.... It takes time, but less fuss, mess and scent (if you have nosey neighbors..
From everything I’ve read and watched, from Leafly to Martha and Snoop, the flower has be be activated before using it. Thanks Food & Wine!
This recipe of sous vide first, then doing the whole sauce pot cooking is redundant and idiotic. The decarboxylation can happen at 200-220 degrees Fahrenheit at the 30 minute mark where the thc/cannabinoids will be activated. Hence, just set sous vide at >200 and >30mins and avoid the whole extra pan fiasco you're recommending. I hope you do not give any more advice on cooking or cannabis matters. Food and wine editors dropping the ball on this one. Loss a lot of "street/industry cred" food and wine!
