3. Cooking at too high a temperature.
Generally speaking, lower cooking temperatures are better. THC is completely degraded at temperatures in excess of 392 degrees F although it starts to break down long before that. Since water boiling never gets above 212 degrees F, I always recommend adding water when making cannabis infusions (see point 2 above), but you will need to pay attention to cooking temperatures when using the infused butter and oils or when cooking with marijuana concentrates too. Do not use infused oils for direct sautéing for frying. If you are making some battered, make sure the medicated part is inside the batter. You can cook at oven temperatures up to 375 degrees F, as the food itself will not get that hot.
