Simply fill empty capsules with your AVB and take like any other pill or supplement. Capsules are an effective way to enjoy AVB without having to experience its awful flavor or texture. However, it can take a bit longer to feel the effects of using this method since the capsules take extra time to dissolve.
Capsules are a great way to discreetly take your AVB with you on the go while maintaining discretion. While this definitely defeats the purpose of vaping your weed in the first place, AVB can, in fact, be smoked. This is the least recommended method, as the taste is terrible and the potency won’t rival fresh cannabis flowers — not to mention the flavor will be very harsh and may irritate the lungs. Smoking AVB is certainly possible, but we wouldn’t recommend it. Just like cannabis flower, AVB hemp flower can also be used to make therapeutic edibles without the intoxicating effects of THC. We like the organic hemp flower from Canna Comforts, which is sustainably grown, batch-tested, and vapes beautifully. Making edibles from AVB is a great way to get every ounce of benefit from your cannabis or organic raw hemp flower.
How to Use Already Vaped Bud (AVB) to Make Edibles. Today I'm going to teach you an easy way to bring new life to your already vaped weed scraps. Previously something you would have disposed, can give you a whole new high. When you're on a budget, getting two highs out of one bud is life-saving. WHAT YOU'LL NEED: Half-Ounce of 'Already Been Vaped' Weed 1/2 cup of Butter / Oil of your preference (discussed below) Cooktop Medium-sized saucepan Spatula / Mixing Utensil Cheesecloth One medium-sized plastic container Scale. If you're curious about the science behind this idea of recycling your weed, the THC and all the other cannabinoids that make up your bud vaporize at different temperatures. Vaporizing doesn't combust the cannabis, it essentially bakes it at a high temperature, leaving a lot of THC on the buds. Y o u do have to make sure that when you're vaporizing , you're not at so high of a temperature that you're left with no THC . If your leftover weed is turning black , your temperature is too high . Vaping is not only the healthiest way to consume our precious cannabinoids, it is also the most economical. With vaporizing, a little bit goes a very long way. You can also experiment with combining other healing herbs in your vaporizer to enhance your stash and make it last even longer . Keep an airtight glass jar next to your vaporizer and use it as your "ashtray" for all the vaporized herb. The best part of cooking with weed that has already been vaped is that you get to skip the long process of activating your canna-butter. Since your flower has already been heated by its first round of vaporization, all of the cannabinoids are activated and ready to directly infuse. The recommendation is to still give it some heat and infuse your scraps in butter or oil, but in a pinch you could theoretically throw the already been vaped weed directly into your brownie mix. The only caveat to this method is that the taste might not be as good. Okay, now let's talk about the fun part -- the options you have for infusion: Canna-butter - Butter has been a long-time go-to for cannabis consumers because of its high fat content, it's easy to infuse, and it makes everything taste freakin' amazing. THC, CBD and all the other good-for-you things that are packed in our favorite flower attach to fat molecules, so our goal is to get butter with the highest fat content. To find the fat content just look at the saturated and unsaturated fat on the back of the package. I recommend to choose an unsalted butter with at least 7g of saturated fat. Canna-Oil - Already-vaped weed can be infused into any kind of cooking oil, including olive, canola and my personal favorite, coconut. I haven't yet tried avocado oil, but the more fat the better! Coconut has the highest saturated fat content with 12 grams of saturated fat, but olive oil and avocado are in the lead in the monounsaturated fats with 10 grams. Edible cocoa butter is also a great option for infusion as it has 8 grams of saturated fat and has arguably the best taste. Both options for infusion are very versatile, and can be subbed into any recipe that calls for butter or oil. Don't be afraid to think outside the "weed brownie box!" You can go the savory route with a stoned stir-fry, canna-buttered cornbread, or medicated mashed potatoes.
WHAT YOU DO : Weigh out a half-ounce of your Already Been Vaped weed (you can add less or more to adjust the strength of the final product) Create a tea bag out of cheesecloth holding all your ABV weed (this eliminates the need for straining). Measure a 1/2 cup of butter or oil of your preference and add it to the saucepan with the ABV weed. If you're using butter or coconut oil, you may want to melt it in the microwave first. Stir the butter/oil and the ABV weed together on low heat until the mixture begins to simmer. Simmer the mixture for a minimum of 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
This ensures that your butter/oil is being infused to its maximum potential. If you have time to kill, feel free to leave your pan on low heat for a couple of hours. Once you feel satisfied with your infusion, remove from the stove. Squeeze all of the butter/oil out of the teabag filled with your ABV weed and discard. If you decided to mix your ABV in directly with your butter/oil, it's now time to separate.
