Ardent Cannabis – Nova – Decarboxylator
What Problem Does a Decarboxylator Solve?
Did you know cannabis by itself has little to know psychoactive properties? That’s right it needs to be heated first. That’s why most people smoke cannabis, to heat it up to a point where it decarboxylates and unlocks all the psychoactive benefits. Well, what if you don’t want to smoke cannabis but still want the benefits? or what if you already smoke or vaporize cannabis flower but you want the potency of your flower increased? Then it is time for a high-quality decarboxylation device.
The Value Proposition
The Nova from Ardent Cannabis activates or unlocks your cannabis flower so that it is more optimized, potent, and bioavailable. This is particularly important if you are ingesting your cannabis as medical marijuana patient.
If you don’t heat or sufficiently decarboxylate your raw cannabis flower you are potentially missing a large part, perhaps even the majority of the benefit of the active ingredients of the plant. In short, the Nova device makes each gram of flower way more potent so you don’t have to use as much flower to get your desired outcome.
Terpenes are the compounds of the plant that give a plant its smell or scent. In addition to the fragrance of the plant scientists are beginning to see other health benefits from terpenes. The psychoactive compounds together with the terpenes produce an entourage effect that allows the whole of the plant to be greater than the sum of its parts. This is where the Nova shines. The Nova decarboxylates at the lowest possible temperature to maintain the terpene profile of the plant so you can enjoy the maximum benefit possible.
One aspect of the Nova is that is frequently overlooked is the benefit of sterilization. The heating action of the Nova decarboxylation device is hot enough to kill spores and microbes that could be potentially hazardous to your health. When trying to enjoy the plant for medicinal purposes the last thing you want to do is introduce toxic spores and microbes like salmonella to your body. Unfortunately, it is all too common to find disgusting things on your flower. If you haven’t done so already, bring a magnifying glass with you to your local dispensary and you will be surprised what you might find when you get down to a granular scale, the most common sight is insect feces, yuck!
Is it Worth The Price?
This is a fair question. Many people that don’t fully understand the benefit of a special purpose decarboxylation device might say, “I can just put this in my oven and activate it.” That is like saying I can cook an egg on the hood of my car on a hot day instead of a frying pan. The difference between heating (decarboxylating) your cannabis flower in the oven or in the Nova is the difference between a sword or scalpel.
“Wait, what!? I don’t understand that sword or scalpel analogy.”
Stick with me, if you have a hangnail would you rather have a professional use a sword to hack it out or the precise, small, and sharp edge of a scalpel that lends itself to the fine motor skills of the human hand?
The Nova is specifically built, and finely-honed to be your scalpel. The Nova does one thing perfectly, activate your cannabis and make it optimally useful to introduce the active ingredients to you when you want them.
Since cannabis flower is quite expensive it makes sense to try to stretch your dollar as far as possible to get the most out it. If this was any other flower or herb the value proposition wouldn’t be there but with the market price of cannabis around $1600 per pound (.45 kg) investing in a high-quality decarboxylation device like the Nova makes sense to those who have run the numbers.
Who is The Nova Right For?
The ideal person the Nova is right for is the person that is committed to high-quality, activated flower that maintains the best part of the plant. If you are regularly ingesting flower as a medical patient or if you are vaporizing or smoking the flower regularly a precision decarboxylation device is a great tool and one that will pay for itself quickly as you will have to purchase way less flower to get the same desired outcome.
Who is the Nova NOT Right For?
If you are not regularly medicating orally or through vaporizing/ smoking, it may not make sense financially to invest in a decarboxylation device.
