Understanding Decarboxylation

During our work in process optimization of cannabis production, we noticed a rate difference of decarboxylation for tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA) and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA). The noticeable rate difference between the decarboxylation reactions of THCA & CBDA has been noted but is generally overlooked. [1a, 1b] We were curious to study and understand those rate differences. …
