I'm wondering why the decarboxylation baking step that is recommended for making green dragon isn't also recommended in the making of butane honey oil. Anybody know?

Cooking is better for when you eat or drink your product.
It's not necessary for product you plan to smoke.

it does activate a little more goodies but when you BHO it pulls all and the cannibinol thats in it decarboxylates when you smoke it, now if you plan on making candy or taffy with the honey oil it would be a good idea.

BHO candy glass

3 3/4 cups white sugar
1 1/2 cups light corn syrup
1 cup water
3 tablespoons BHO (more can be added but these are strong enough)
1 tablespoon flavoring extract (optional)
1/2 teaspoon food coloring (optional)
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar for dusting

In a medium saucepan, stir together the white sugar, corn syrup, and water. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until sugar dissolves, then bring to a boil. Without stirring, heat to 300 to 310 degrees F (149 to 154 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle threads.
Remove from heat and stir in the BHO, flavored extract and food coloring, if desired. Pour onto a greased cookie sheet, and dust the top with confectioners' sugar. Let cool, and break into pieces. Store in an airtight container. a 1/2" square or a peice the size of half a peppermint swirl is good for a stone and 2 is good for medicinal use.
