About a year ago, a comment thread popped up on my Instagram account that went a little like this:

“I love the Levo 2, but the capacity is way too small and my oil isn’t very strong.”

“Yeah, kind of in the same boat with the Nova. It’s amazing, and my oil is good, but it’s too small for what I want to do.”

“I have the exact opposite issue with the MB2. I have to make huge batches in there. So if I only have a little bit of weed, my oil is super weak. Plus it doesn’t decarb.”

“There’s just no perfect machine… yet. Hey Corinne, are they going to make a bigger Nova?”

At the time, I’d heard only rumors of the new and improved device that Ardent was developing. A top secret gadget; all I knew is that it was going to be bigger.

But what came in the mail last week was more than just a bigger, shinier version of the Nova. It’s called the Ardent FX  and it’s a game-changing all in one cannabis infusion and baking device.

We’ve been calling it the Easy Baked Oven around here, and while it’s been fun to play with and joke around about, it’s also been an uplevel over every other cannabis kitchen device I’ve ever tested.

You can watch the unboxing and review below (and snag my CBG Olive Oil recipe) or read the post for more.

What does the Ardent FX do, exactly?

The Ardent FX is considered an “all in one portable cannabis kitchen”.

But what it really does is provide the perfect environment and temperature for decarboxylation of your cannabinoids and infusion into oil (you can also bake in it!).

If you’ve never heard about decarboxylation or know why it’s so important in crafting your homemade edibles and infusions, check out this post: Decarboxylating Cannabis to Activate THC and CBD

In order to make infusions and tinctures that contain THC, CBD or CBG, you need to first heat your plant material to a specific temperature for a certain amount of time. (This happens naturally when you smoke or vape, which is why you don’t need to decarb for inhalation methods).

When you’re making edibles and tinctures, you will only get about 20-30% of your cannabinoids, meaning weaker oil and wasted money. To get more of the cannabinoids from your cannabis, you need to decarboxylate.

Ardent did a lot of testing while developing the FX and the Nova and what they found was that our DIY decarboxylation methods were burning off a lot of cannabinoids

According to the lab results, popular methods like the oven, toaster oven and crock pot, could make us miss as much as 33% in converting THCa into THC, CBDa into CBD and CBGa into CBG.

If you decarboxylate an ounce of cannabis in the oven and 30% of your plant material is wasted, you can be losing as much as $150 dollars every time you make a batch of edibles (if you live in a place like DC where an ounce can cost up to $500 🤯).

If you skipped decarboxylation completely, and went straight to throwing your cannabis in oil to infuse it, you’re wasting at least twice that amount.

Investing in a decarboxylator that’s been lab tested and proven to fully activate your cannabis will definitely save you money in the long run.

Cash money aside, the FX is such a convenient way to decarb and infuse. With the push of a button you decarb. Add oil and another push and you’ve got infused oil. Then strain and toss everything but the base in the dishwasher and you’re done.

Let’s break that down.

How to use the Ardent FX (aka the Nova FX)

Step 1: Decarboxylation

The FX has different settings to decarboxylate CBD, CBG and THC. A1 will decarboxylate THC and CBG and A2 decarboxylates CBD.

This is going to be a very short section because all you do is select the mode you’d like to use by pressing the M button and then hitting power.

Once the decarboxylation process is done, the light will blink red telling you that it’s cooling down. Then it will turn green and your plant material will be fully decarbed.

Step 2: Infusing with the Ardent FX

After your cannabis is decarboxylated, let the device cool and pour in your favorite oil or butter. Hit the infuse button and come back an hour or two later to a perfectly infused oil. The infuse cycle runs as long as 3 hours, but you can turn the device off sooner than that.

A 3 hour cycle won’t ruin your oil, but lab reports show there’s no real difference in infusion rates after 1 hour, so you may as well save the energy and get to making some healthy edibles with your infusion.

Note: If you skip the step of decarb and try to just decarb your plant material in oil, testing shows that you’ll only get about 20-30% activation. Make sure you always decarb first to get the most out of your plant material.

Step 3: Strain and Bake

After you infuse your oil, you can strain it out (they’re going to have a custom strainer available soon, but for now, I just used a fine mesh colander).

Put the purple chamber in the dishwasher.

You’re done! Your oil is now ready to be made into infinite possibilities. You can make pain salvecannabanana bread, or homemade weed lube. The sky is the limit (and depending on if you use THC, you just might reach it)

The Verdict

Ardent FX Review and Coupon Code

I only recommend and post things here that I use and that I love and this thing gets the Wake + Bake stamp of approval.

This is by FAR the easiest, cleanest, and most efficient decarb and infusion process out there.

I typically do a pros and cons list here, but the only con I can think of is that the cycle can be a little long (but that’s what it takes to get a full decarboxylation). I wasn’t paying that much attention, but I think it took almost 2 hours to run a cycle. So you have to account for that if you’re planning on whipping up some brownies the same day as making your oil.

I probably won’t be using any other device or method from here on out.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Ardent FX

When I asked the people of instagram to toss questions my way about the Ardent FX, most of the questions related to how they compared to the other devices on the market. So I’m going to cover all of that here. If you have other questions, just shoot them into the comments below or send me an email at [email protected] and we’ll add them here.

The FX vs. The Nova

I loved my Nova, and still think it’s a great budget option if you only need to decarboxylate and infuse small amounts at a time

You can still decarboxylate up to 1 oz of flower or 5 oz of concentrates (compared to the FX's 4 oz flower capacity). And you can infuse small amounts in the Nova using the Infusion Sleeve or by using a small glass jar (a commenter below mentioned they found a pyrex jar with a pourable spout that fit perfectly… if you find something that works, add it to the comments!)

While the Nova isn't dishwasher safe, but it has a removable chamber that you can quickly wash. With very few moving parts, it's still very simple and convenient to clean.

The Nova decarbs and infuses small batches. The FX decarbs small to large batches, infuses, and bakes. The FX is also dishwasher friendly.

Nova vs. FX Cost

The Nova will run you about $130 less than the FX, so it’s a great budget option for small batches.

I used to decarb in my Nova and then infuse in my MB2 to do my larger batches, so if you’re planning on doing that, the FX is still a less expensive all-in-one option.

If budget is an issue and you only want to do small batches, the Nova is the best option on this list.

Because we have testing data on the decarb, we know that you’ll be getting a 97% decarb on your plant material, which is something that the MB2 doesn’t do at all. The Levo 2 does not provide data on their decarb feature, so we can’t tell you for certain.

The FX vs. The Levo 2

According to Wake + Bake readers, size does matter. And so does strength. And so does convenience.

With readers who have used the Levo 2, the feedback has been “It’s awesome. It’s beautiful. It's convenient.” But some also add, “the capacity is just too small.”

Some readers have commented about the lack of strength of their oil in the Levo 2 because even their largest herb pod doesn’t contain very much plant material (it can hold up to ½ cup).

Depending on the density of your plant material, if you were to fit 3.5 grams of 10% THC material in the device and infuse 1 cup of oil, your oil would come out at 7.5mg per teaspoon.

I used my Otto grinder to perfectly grind my herb before loading it in the pod to fit more in. Many readers have found other workarounds like this to get more potency in each cup.

Some run a couple of cycles with each pod. Some put more pods into the device for each cycle. With the Levo 2 if you want more potency, you'll likely have to MacGyver a way that works for you.

If you're microdosing, this wont matter much. But if you're cooking for others who have high tolerances or if you have a high tolerance, this may be more hassle than it's worth.

I would say that if you order the Levo 2, the Herb Press accessory is essential. While the Levo doesn't make the strongest oil per teaspoon, it does have the least amount of oil loss out of any gadget I ever tried when you use the Herb Press.

Usually you have to MacGyver something to squeeze out all of your oil (a french press – which makes coffee interesting the next day, pressing your cheesecloth bag with your knuckles until they're sore, I even once used a potato ricer in a pinch and that worked pretty well).

As for decarb, you can adjust the cycle to any temperature for any length of time, so it leaves it up to the user to try and get the decarb results they’re looking for.

This is awesome if you're doing a custom decarb to leave some raw cannabinoids in tact (which is what most cannabis clinicians are currently recommending) and that's what I use the Levo 2 for now.

There's one downside that may not apply to anyone but me, but I feel like I have to mention it here. There is a little piece that come along with the Levo 2. And if you use it, you can’t use the device. I lost it and had to wait for a week to get a replacement.

If you’re good at keeping things the size of a quarter from getting lost in your kitchen, that might work for you, but I’m a type A.5 personality (halfway between A and B) and my kitchen is B territory.

Levo 2 vs. Ardent FX Cost

The Levo 2 retails at $249 and the FX retails at $349.

But with the $30 off code (WAKEANDBAKE), that brings the FX down to $319.

You'll save about $70 on a Levo, so if you only want to do small batches, you'd be saving some money.

Verdict: If custom decarboxylation and infusion temperatures and the added drying feature are important, and if you typically microdose your cannabis anyway, the Levo 2 is the gadget for you.

Magical Butter vs. Ardent FX

The MB2 is one of the oldest cannabis infusion devices out there and it’s just that. An infusion device.

When I first started doing this, it was the only thing on the market and I thought it was really cool. As a matter of fact, I wrote a rave review about it and was using it to infuse large batches until I got the FX.

The company has decided that instead of innovating and creating something new with better functions, they’d just rebrand the same ole MB2 and call it a day.

The MB2 has a minimum volume to operate (2 cups of oil) so it's really only for large batches. You can't put it in the dishwasher which means a little more elbow grease on infusion days. 

To be fair, they do offer some accessories that are pretty cool. They have a decarb box that makes decarboxylating in the oven easier and the strainer bags included can also be used to make small batches of bubble hash.

While it was once my go to infusion method, I think they got outpaced by the other three options now available.

Magical Butter vs Ardent FX Cost

The MB2 is the most affordable device on the list at $189. So if you're just looking for a large capacity infuser (like if you already have a Nova or if you prefer your home decarb method to keep some of the raw cannabinoids in tact), it's budget friendly.

My Money's On: The Ardent FX

Here's why.

It's got the capacity of a Magical Butter, the convenience of a Levo 2 and the lab-tested reliability of the Nova.

It can decarb and infuse as little as 1 gram or as much as 4 ounces of flower. It has modes to decarboxylate THC, CBD and CBG, so no matter what cannabinoids you're working with, or what ratios, you can do it in the FX.

Then you can just strain the plant material out and throw the entire thing in the dishwasher. It’s so simple.

You can also decarboxylate and infuse concentrates directly in the FX.

I know you can even bake in it, so if you’re living that kitchenette lifestyle, you can use it as a full on cooking device. I’ve heard of people making pasta and banana bread in it.

I haven’t used the bake function just yet, so let me know what you’d like to see cooked in the FX in the comments below and I’ll accept any (realistic) dare!

If you’re looking to get your hands on the Ardent FX, you can use this link to grab this amazing gadget. Don’t forget to use WAKEANDBAKE for $30 off.

Note: If you already own an MB2, Levo or Nova and still love it, that's awesome! I'm not saying you need the newest, most improved thing. It's kind of like when the new phone, computer, TV comes out. Yours still works, but the quality of the new one might be higher. It's just the nature of invention.

    I don’t use the silicon sleeve. I don’t even own one. I use a small Pyrex beaker (it has a little pouring spout, too.) I love my Nova. I’d love to own an FX, but I don’t need to have an appliance that does large batches. (Nor can I afford it at this time.)

      Totally! If you already have a Nova and the size works for you, it’s great. It’s also lab tested, so we know it works, and mine have lasted for years through seemingly infinite batches. Also, can you share the pyrex beaker you use? I know a lot of folks don’t like to infuse in silicon and would love to share an alternative.

      thanks!

    I just ordered mine yesterday. I started out decarbing in the oven and using the crock pot to infuse oils. I have been using the MB2 for quite a while and it cut my processing time tremendously and increased the potency by a goodly amount. I am stoked to get the FX just for the decarb feature alone. The only drawback that I can see is you cannot infuse alcohol in the FX.. I will keep the MB2 for that.

    I’m using a glass Lee Kum Kee jar that probably had oyster sauce or something similar in it originally. Fits like a glove in the Nova. I’m the same as GEEWHIZ in that I don’t need the FX since I only do small batches and it works perfectly. A beaker with a pour spout would be a better alternative but my glass jar really works well for me.

      Yep! You get most of a decarb for CBD on the first cycle, if you want to get a few more percent out of your plant material, just let the device cool for at least 20 minutes and run another cycle. Hope that helps!

    I was saving up for a Nova, but now that I know there is the Ardent FX I know what I’ll get for sure. In the end I’m happy I waited a bit.

    Also for pressing our your weed after a small batch infusion, I love use sing my fine tea strainer. It’s perfect when I infuse a batch up to an half ounce and I can press on the herb with the back of a spoon for maximum extraction. Mine is metal so I can just take it with herb and all and dump it in my soy milk for high chai.

I’m on a fixed income and didn’t want to be stuck with buyers remorse so I waited. I haven’t cooked with weed yet because I live with children and didn’t want the smell to linger. Now I know I want the FX(for the baking capability), just waiting for a bundle(and waiting to see if they come out with a sleeve)

    So to be clear, the FX can infuse up to 5 cups oil same as the MB2? To quote you, ”
    My Money’s On: The Ardent FX
    Here’s why.

    It’s got the capacity of a Magical Butter, ”

    So the FX will infuse 5 cups like the MB2? Or will it do more?

    Thanks Corinne, you’re a babe.”

I wish I had the extra money for one now, but I just bought a qp at the dispensary for the holiday last week. I could really really use an FX right now! I hope and pray I win one!

      I’ve never had issues, but I will say this… Ardent is a small business. I know folks expect Amazon-like response times from everyone on the internet, but as a small business owner myself, I now that sometimes it’s just not possible. They’re also growing, so the growing pains of training new customer support staff can be rough sometimes. Plus, they’re not just a company, they’re activists and curious cannabis consumers who do a lot of experimenting and lab testing. I know that they really care and that’s what matters to me.

      Corinne
      April 20, 2020 at 7:58 am

      Great question! You do not have to grind up your material in the FX which means you get a much more amber colored product (trichomes only). This improves flavor for most folks. You can break up dense buds, but you get to keep the plant in tact which reduces the plant material in your final product. Hope that helps!

    I so wish I hadn’t just bought the mb2 machine a week before receiving the email about the ardent FX because I definitely would have bought that instead. I love my ardent decarb machine just alway wished it was bigger and I love my mb2 machine as I’m always making big batches of oil. I tried out the levo 2 but did not realize it was for small batches only and the way the infuser strainer sticks to the side made me feel like even if I wanted to only infuse one cup, half the strainer wouldn’t be in the oil, so I returned it.

    I would love love love one of these! I currently use the old fashion method to decarb (oven) & then make all my infusions with the MB2. However, I would like to make them stronger as most of my products I make go to those suffering with sleep issues and cancer patients request for them to be stronger. Even though I use more flower in my infusions I just can’t seem to get them stronger. Possibly this machine may help with that. I prettt much have an endless supply of flower, so I experiment all the time. I’ve been recently making batches of MBO but can’t seem to reduce it down to a syrupy consistency. Any tips??

    A happy 420 to you. Very thorough review and competitive analysis. Based on your earlier review of the Nova, I started with that awesome device. Great for decarbing, but I found it clunky for infusing (it’s difficult to remove the sleeve, which inevitably causes spillage if you fill it close to the top.) So I got a Levo2 for infusing, again based on your review. I preferred the Ardent for decarbing, and the infusion cycle was easy with the Levo2, but weak as you mentioned (especially when I make high potency topicals). The FX sounds like the best of the best features of those devices, and I’m hoping Santa Claus is kind to me later this year. Keep up the great work.

    These reviews, articles, recipes have been essential in my journey. Thank you Corrine and Fiona for your diligent and beautiful efforts. I’m starting a small business this year and have been experimenting in my kitchen with ethanol tinctures and oils for a while before I found your website. Mostly hemp with CBD/CBG. Now you two are a staple for me. I was drooling over though FX the first time I read the review a few days ago. I live with family who are supportive of my endeavors but hate the smell which means I can only do carbs and cook when they’re not around. That’s not very often. I would be ecstatic to win the FX seeing as I already use your recipes for butters coconut oil‘s and extra-virgin olive oil‘s. Thank you for all you do! Happy 4/20

    Had my Ardent for 3 years now and use it weekly to make edibles and topicals for me and the wife. She has early onset Parkinson’s and the gummies and topicals I make with the Ardent Nova help her more than the all the meds she used to take. Definitely have to look to upgrading to the FX in the near future.

    The FX looks like a great machine! I picked up your Cannabis Kitchen Bundle last year, then added the Levo I to the set up later in the year so I could make smaller batches. Do you have a guide on times and temperatures for decarbing and infusing? I’ve been using the suggested times and temps on the devices. I do edibles and tinctures as well as micro dosing.

    I actually read this review a few days ago and purchased the FX, but I have a question do you need the silicone sleeve for infusion/baking in the unit. Also I have yet to see a baking video so that would be a nice demo to see in my opinion.

    Thanks,

    My husband has been encouraging me to learn how to make edibles since I enjoy cooking and baking. I have read on the subject and am still trying to wrap my head around the science, but from reading your review the new device makes the process beginner friendly. Thanks for a great review.

    Ello! Happy 420! I love your site and all the info within! Very clear and intentional and much appreciated! I just used my newly purchased nova and mbm to make cbd oil and it was so much easier than the oven and crock pot method.. Would love to do it on a bigger scale and having the option to do it all in one machine sounds great! Thanks a bunch! 😁🌼🌱

    I’ve had a Nova – 2 actually for bigger batches- for a couple of years and it’s so simple to use and I always recommend it to people that are uneasy with the decanting process! But I feel like I’m going to need the fx- if only just for the ease of using it for small and bigger batches and the infusing all in one!

I make 2:1 pain balms and had to do it 4x in the Nova to give everyone on my list a nice little 2oz jar. The Nova technology is just first rate and I can see the FX is the same only bigger! I need one!!

      Please tell me the min & max capacities of both? I’m trying to figure out whether to do the Nova or the FX.
      Thanks for the info on Levo2. You saved me a big headache. Thanks so much!
      How does one bake cakes in the FX?
      What other or optional tools do I need?

        April 27, 2020 at 11:05 am

        The liquid capacity max for the FX is about 3.5 cups and the Nova will fit 1 cup of oil. You’ll have to adjust this depending on how much flower you’re infusing. The only minimum is that you use enough oil or butter to completely cover the plant material.

        As far as other optional tools, a strainer/french press is good for extracting all of the oils. I know ardent is making something specifically for the FX, but it’s not out just yet.

        I’m JUST starting to play with that bake funciton and am going to be talking to Shanel about using it for baking here soon. I will send that out in the newsletter. Stay tuned!

        I hope that helps! xoxo – Corinne

          Please tell me what minimum amounts we can process using it.

          Previously, another W&K client has said the Levo2 is a pain to clean out after using.

          So we’ll either purchase the Nova or FX. What’s max discount and code please? Just to make sure we have it.

          Your Dazed and Infused is simply excellent. Confirms so much what I had learned. And I discovered new things as well. Things I can use and pass on to others. Is there any advice to adapting Dazed & Infused to Nova and FX?

          And how does one bake a cake in one?

    Happy 420, I’m still having to do it old school as I’m on assistance, so having do it in my oven to decarb and oil in the double boiler as I only can afford to do small amounts and its a large slow cooker I have and makes no sense to do just a cup of oil in it and I’d be afraid of it scorching on me as it wouldn’t even be an inch deep, and it takes most of the day, as I let the oil go for around 2 hours on the top of the double boiler because my advisor at the Dr’s office that gives me my script told me the longer I cook in the stronger the oil will be and it takes around 45 min to do the decarb using the new instructions they gave me the last time I was there, low and slow 250 for 45 min or as long as it takes to golden up at that temperature, but did find the last time that putting it on crumpled tin foil on the cookie sheet didn’t toast it as nice, but when I do decarb I usually do enough of each type to do the different types of oil I use, CBD, THC and a 1-1, and a high test one the second last time where it was 5 g of THC flower to 1/2 cup of oil for nights I’m having trouble sleeping and lots of pain, and the last time I did it I had 2 double boilers going at the same time one with THC oil and 1 with CBD. I then strain through a jelly bag and a bunch of layers of cheesecloth in my funnel into empty honey bottles that have the lids labeled as to which oil it is

    I live in a state with edibles that don’t work for me and I have now become a daily smoker, which I and my lungs are not happy about.
    Having lived in Colorado until recently, I found edibles there to be an almost literal life saver in dealing with a chronic disease. Where I am now, they use xylitol, which does not feel good if you take too many 🤢. And because they’re mild, I always need too many.
    So, with subpar MMJ and needing to get meds into me as quickly as possibly sometimes, this would be super helpful! Plus, I’m not the sharpest tool in the kitchen. Anything that makes life easier is always appreciated! 🙃😁

    This review does it for us. We’re new to this. I was planning to do the “thang” using convection microwave and rice cooker or double boiler. Screw those hassles. I agree with her. We’ll use the Nova.
    What gets me is it’s hard to imagine the size in quantity. In appearance it looks like a tall water glass.
    I don’t think we’ll do alcohol infusions. We do use a lot of coconut oil (omega 3 is anti inflammatory) as it tastes good no matter what.
    As for sex lube? We got a bottle of First & Health cold processed grass fed organic ghee 50/50 with likewise processed organic grape seed oil. This is an amazing sex lube in itself.
    We previously used cocoa butter suppositories I had locally made to order using a 2:1 THC:CBD. They had 60mgTHC/30mgCBD. You could cut them into three pieces. Oh holy shit. You didn’t come. You arrived.
    I have all but (perhaps before a storm) eliminated my narcotics for chronic pain. My wife is down 75% thanks to CBD mostly but certain strains of weed.
    This site rocks.

    I am way new to the Cannabis medicine call. I’m a medicine woman, Yoga Instructor (I teach Kinder through 4th at my local public school), Hypnotic Coach, and use many modalities to help myself & others achieve wellness. My mom has chronic pain, insomnia, and depression and her doctors are reducing her opiate prescriptions. She has had some historical negative reactions to THC so when I read about the way CBD was helping people heal I jumped at the chance to try. I started bring her CBD oil and immediate noticed a difference -her mood improved, she was able to sleep, her immune system seemed to be improving, and her pain was manageable. It was so expensive though. So I did what I do – researched recipes – went into a dispensary bought CBD bud -lol! I had NO IDEA how much an ounce of bud was!!! Ok – so I decarb in my oven and infuse in my crockpot. I add peppermint essential oil to my finished product because my mom doesn’t like the dank flavor and it helps with her IBS.

    I sell the extra I make to my clients and it helps me support myself and my mom.

    I’m so new I literally have not been able to make her CBD oil for 2 months because our dispensaries have only had THC CBD mix bud – and didn’t realise that I could order it online! Ugh! Did that yesterday! I’d love to add the FX to my home apothecary!! I would be able to provide a better more consistent product!!

    Looking for something to make edibles and tinctures. will the oil be like we get from the stores? I have read that tinctures use alcohol, is this an alternative. Please be patient I am very new to this part of cannabis use. Thank you.

      Hi Janice!
      If you are looking for a device to decarboxylate and infuse, we recommend the Ardent FX. A true tincture does use alcohol, as this is a great way to extract. We have tincture recipes and oil infusion recipes on the blog and in our ebook, Dazed + Infused.
      If you are new to cannabis you might find our ebook Dazed + Infused to be very helpful!

      Feel free to send an email to [email protected] if you have any more questions 🙂

    Sorry to be so delinquent. I just saw that you wanted me to respond. I bought a set of three pyrex beakers on ebay. The big one, 250 ml doesn’t fit the Nova…but the medium size (100 ml,) and the smallest one (50ml) work just fine depending on the amount of oil I’m using. I make small batches of infused MCT or coconut oil…the former for my version of Bulletproof coffee and the latter for baking. I’ve infused butter, and it’s okay, but lengthy heating of butter can make it go rancid (even refrigerated) faster. Infused olive oil is also great to great for garnishing savory dishes (like salads, pasta, soups and casseroles.) As a rule, I don’t dose an entire batch of food, I dose only a portion when I serve…so that the infused oil doesn’t go through any more additional heating.
