NOVA Decarboxylator by Ardent Cannabis
The NOVA is a compact, spherical-shaped appliance that perfectly decarboxylates your cannabis for edible, topical and sublingual application. Decarboxylating is the essential process in making edibles that activates the THCa in your cannabis to its psychoactive form, but is a step that can befuddle even experienced canna-chefs. There are so many variables to decarbing, and you don’t want to risk under-activating it and leaving the consumer less than satisfied, or going too far and ending up with edibles that leave the consumer sleepy and unmotivated. The NOVA makes this process effortless. Simply load up to a ¼ oz of flower or 5 ounces of kief, set the machine, and walk away for 90 mins to 2 hours. Another added bonus is that the NOVA is almost completely odorless, so you don’t have to worry about alerting any neighbors or roommates in the process (ardentcannabis.com).
Magical Butter Machine
The Magical Butter (MB) Machine is the perfect complement to your new NOVA. This appliance takes your decarbed flower or concentrate and extracts it into butter, cooking oils and tinctures. Just like the NOVA, simply deposit your cannabis product and extraction material, set the machine, and walk away. Settings vary from 1 to 8 hours, depending on the type of extraction, and the machine shuts off automatically when finished. The MB Machine comes with a 90-micron size filter bag and a heat-resistant glove to safely strain your infusion. It also features a handy “cleaning” cycle, which you can use to get all the nooks and crannies clean and ready for its next use. Additional accessories are available for purchase on their website, including silicone butter stick molds that will help you dose your freshly made cannabutter (magicalbutter.com).
