Industrial hemp can be used in an estimated 50,000 different products across a wide spectrum of industries including, textiles, bioplastics, cosmetics, building materials and human and animal food. Hemp decarboxylation is an important consideration when determining the concentration of THC in hemp. Hemp contains numerous raw cannabinoids and does not cause any kind of psychoactive experience. The process of decarboxylation usually involves exposing the cannabinoids to heat or light, which inherently changes the chemical structure of them. This unlocks the once sleeping psychoactive potential of THC and makes it an active side effect.
