Many people discard their herbs after vaping without realizing there are still ways to use them and get the remaining cannabinoids. Already vaped bud (AVB) can be used for edibles, vaping again, and much more. Recycling your AVB cannabis is not only cheaper than buying new cannabis repeatedly, but it can also add value and provide new techniques to your cannabis experience.
What is Already Vaped Bud?
Already vaped bud is cannabis that has been used in a vaporizer. Most people throw it away without a second thought, but there are still cannabinoids in AVB cannabis. The herbs have a light green or greenish-brown color, but it becomes less potent the darker it gets. Blackish herbs cannot be used for anything.
What to Do With AVB
There are many things to do with AVB cannabis:
AVB cannabis can be used to make butter that can be added to anything from toast to popcorn. To make ABV cannabutter, simmer one cup of bud, one cup of butter, and water in a frying pan. Afterward, filter it through cheesecloth and let it thicken in a refrigerator overnight. This cannabutter can then be used as a spread or substituted for butter in recipes.
ABV Tea and Coffee
To make tea or coffee with ABV cannabis, heat the milk and cannabis in a saucepan until it simmers. Stir frequently until the THC and CBD are absorbed. Filter the milk using a cheesecloth or coffee filter, then add it to your tea or coffee. Be sure not to let the milk come to a boil, as this can alter the structure of THC and CBD.
Another way to use AVB cannabis is to put it in capsules with coconut oil and swallow them. This method is perfect for those with a low tolerance for THC and CBD.
AVB Concentrates for Wax Pens
Vaped weed can also be used to make concentrates for wax pens. To do this, use a rosin press or alcohol to extract the cannabinoids, then separate the wax from the leftover product. This method requires several tools, including parchment paper, an iron or hair straightener, and a knife or spoon.
The taste of vaped herbs can be bitter when smoked, but soaking them in water for three to four days can remove the bitter taste. Submerge the ABV cannabis in water to remove the compounds that cause the harsh flavor but do not reduce the cannabinoids. Afterward, let the cannabis dry and continue smoking or vaping it.
Frequently Asked Questions About AVB
How Much THC Is in ABV?
The amount of THC or CBD that remains in ABV cannabis depends on several factors, including temperature, length of session, and original cannabinoid content. It’s challenging to gauge accurately, but most samples are around 30% of the original cannabinoids.
How Much Vaped Bud Can You Eat?
It’s safe to say that a person can eat several pastries made with AVB weed before feeling ill. However, it’s best to consume one brownie or cookie first and wait thirty minutes to an hour before eating more.
How Long Does Eating AVB Take to Work?
Eating AVB cannabis can take anywhere from two to four hours to take effect because the weed has to go through the digestive system and be broken down.
