Simply put, decarboxylation is the process of applying just the right amount of heat and time to activate the special effects in herbs. Decarboxylation is important because the way you choose to do it (what temperature and how long) affects how much activation of the special effects you get! If you use too low, high or unstable of heat, or too short or long of time, you won’t receive as many special effects.
Traditional decarbing methods such as ovens, crockpots or even double boilers rarely reach an activation of 70%. This is why we created Ardent,
Ardent technology guarantees 97-100% activation of your plant material every time. Do more with less!SAVE MONEY:

Before launching Ardent in 2015, Shanel was a medical patient suffering from chronic pain and inflammation caused by an ovarian cyst she developed after having her son. Not wanting to use traditional pain killers that cause adverse side effects, she turned to plant based medicine. Unfortunately, she soon discovered that using the plant as an accurate medicine was almost impossible.
Determined and motivated to find a solution, Shanel worked with scientists at MCR Labs and invented Ardent's flagship product, NOVA Decarboxylator & Infuser, which accurately decarbs and infuses any herb. In 2020, Shanel took the same technology and launched the new Ardent FX all-in-one cooking, infusion, and baking device (aka the Easy Bake Oven for Adults). The rest is history!
