  • Oven

Method using ECRU Decarb Kit
Step 1: Calibrate Your Oven
  1. Set your desired mode using 4 preset modes. If you are making CBN, CBG potency herb.

  2. Preheat your oven with the sensor probe before decarb. Make sure you DO NOT place the LCD display in the oven.

  3. Check your oven temperature. If the temperature reading on the thermometer differs from your oven setting, raise or lower your oven temperature to compensate. For example, your setting is 260°F, but the thermometer reads 250°F, which means your oven is lower than your preset temperature. For decarb, you would increase your oven temperature.

NOTE: It's common for your oven to fluctuate by + 30°F and – 30°F. That's because oven cycles turn on and off for a total range of 60°F.

Step 2: Decarb Your Herb
  1. After preheating, spread herb evenly in the glass pane, and press the silicone lid top down on all sides to seal.

  2. Insert the temperature probe into the socket on the right side of the device.

  3. Bake on the center oven rack for even heating. Do NOT exceed recommended durations.

  4. When you put your decarb box with herbs in the oven, your glass pan will take some time to reach the desired temperature. The preset timer will start the countdown once the preset temperature has reached. Once the process is done, the alarm will sound.
