This question is most likely already answered but i just want to make sure im up on my chemistry.
I have seen many a video and many a thread demonstrating butane extraction, but ive seen none that say anything about heating the cannabis before starting the process of extraction. I know that canabis must be heated to convert the pre-THC molecules to activated THC as one would with green dragon or canna-butter.
Is there some reason why this isnt necessary with the butane method of isolation?
I thought maybe it is because most people smoke the finished product (requires no pre heating ) and im planning on ingesting it orally.
