Decarboxylation help

I did a search and now am more confused than before. I can’t find the info I had and the new is all over the place. I even read the Decarboxylation Studies and my eyes crossed. 160 degrees to over 300. Six minutes to hours.
Edit: using oven and a MB decarb box.

This is the study’s that confused me. Is it saying 320F to 6.5 minutes. Everything else is cooler and longer. One says 250F for 30 for THC another 240F for 45. And above 300F for 10/18 minutes.

Yes, that’s what that study is saying if I’m understanding

– right chart –
Higher temperatures == shorter time held at that temperature
–also–
Higher temperatures == Higher conversion to THC

It seems to align with some of the other charts, the axis’s are just different.

Here’s one I think @ReikoX had posted awhile ago and may have some thoughts:

Just stick with 240°F for 40 minutes and you will be all good.
