What Is AVB?
Already Vaped Bud (AVB) is the leftover Cannabis flower that has been heated or smoked using a vaporizer.
The AVB texture is coarse, dry, and crispy, almost resembling dried thyme and oregano, but darker. AVB retains some cannabinoids and terpenes, and you can repurpose it.
What Are The Benefits Of Already Vaped Bud (AVB)?
Consuming already vaped bud is not a novel practice. It has been common practice among Weed enthusiasts for decades.
The medical benefits of consuming Already Vaped Bud (AVB) are mostly unknown. This is because it’s difficult to measure the potency and quality of something that has already been vaporized.
However, there are some benefits associated with consuming AVB, including;
Saving money as you are getting a second use out of your Cannabis flower.
It is already decarboxylated.
It is ready to use in edibles or be sprinkled directly onto food.
Will Smoking AVB Get Me High?
The short answer is yes, but only to a certain extent.
The ideal use for Already Vaped Bud, among many, is not smoking. Most of the THC in your Weed is consumed during the initial vaping, leaving you with a much weaker product. Moreover, the taste can be rather unpleasant.
There are some things to consider:
As the Weed is already vaporized, it will not be as potent.
It does not taste pleasant. You can water-cure your AVB, but be sure to dry it entirely before vaping.
It is almost impossible to tell the strength of your Already Vaped Bud (AVB). Various cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids have different burning temperatures; some will be destroyed while vaping.
How To Water Cure AVB (Already Vaped Bud)
If you find the taste of AVB unappetizing, we suggest you take the extra step and water cure your Already Vaped Bud (AVB). The water curing process removes the chlorophyll and burnt flavor by soaking the AVB in distilled water.
How Long Should You Water Cure ABV?
The water curing process can take a couple of days to 1 week, depending on the amount of unwanted material.
You will have a cleaner product the longer you leave it in the water. We suggest replacing the water every few hours to start or twice daily the longer it cures. The discoloration will fade toward the end.
Once you’ve reached your desired curing process, drain off the water and dry in a food dehydrator for a couple of hours.
If you do not have one handy, place a single layer AVB on a lined baking sheet in a preheated 200 d f oven. Gently shake the tray every 20 – 30 minutes, ensuring the Weed is completely dry before storing.
How To Store And Use Already Vaped Bud?
It may take some time to accumulate enough AVB, so store it for later use.
Store in a sealed Mason Jar in a cool dark place until you have the desired amount.
