6 Ways to Get More Life Out of Your Vaped Weed

One of the advantages of vaping weed vs. smoking it, is the ability to re-use your bud once it’s been vaped. Already vaped bud, also known as AVB, still contains valuable cannabinoids that can be accessed in a variety of ways. It is also referred to as ABV, for already been vaped bud.

Depending on the temperature you vape weed at, your bud can end up anywhere from a slightly green to darker brown color. Ideally you want it to be on the greener side or lighter shade of brown for these recipes. AVB typically contains less THC than fresh bud, but the vaporizer will actually prime it for making edibles through a process known as decarboxylation.

If you’re using a vaporizer, stop throwing your AVB in the trash. Get a jar and start collecting it (and use a Boveda humidity pack to keep it from going bad). These are the simplest and best ways to put it to good use.


Imagine you could just take a weed pill instead of smoking it? It’s quite a stealth way to consume THC. Making your own THC capsules is relatively easy to do, and can be made with already vaped weed.

You can’t just dump raw AVB into a capsule. You will need to infuse it into some coconut oil, add a half teaspoon of lecithin and pour it into the capsules. Dosage will vary depending on the ratio of oil and the potency of your AVB. Start with one or two and see how it affects you to determine your preferred amount.


Cannabutter is another term for cannabis-infused butter. It can be made with AVB and regular butter or coconut oil. There is actually an appliance called the Magical Butter Machine designed specifically for making weed butter. You can also use a slow cooker or a regular stove, but the machine will save you the time and effort.

This gives you the freedom to add THC to virtually any recipe that uses butter like brownies, cookies and muffins. You’re not limited to desserts, cannabutter and AVB butter can be used to add cannabis to regular foods like eggs, sandwiches and fried chicken for example. If you don’t feel like cooking, cannabutter can be spread on toast or blended in to a beverage.

Making AVB brownies

Weed brownies are one of the more popular desserts people make with cannabutter. They are relatively easy to make and the taste of chocolate and nuts blend together nicely with the cannabis flavor. Since your AVB is essentially decarboxylated bud, just waiting for you to throw it in to some brownies. This is only one of the many creations you could make with AVB and cannabutter.

Fire Crackers

This is by far the easiest way to make edibles with the least amount of effort. All you have to do is spread some peanut butter on a few graham crackers, sprinkle some AVB on them and sandwich them together. Wrap them up in aluminum foil and bake them in the oven around 365° F for around 10-15 minutes.

You can also try using Nutella with saltine crackers or adding some coconut oil to increase the fat content, which is essential for THC metabolization. Be aware that you can always eat more, but you can’t eat less. In other words, the experience can be very intense depending on your tolerance, so start slow and wait at least a half hour before you assess how you feel. It’s not recommended to eat more until you are familiar with the effects of your initial dose.

Making concentrates

AVB can be used to make concentrates, but keep in mind you will need more than usual due to the lower cannabinoid potency. The best ways to extract the rest of your THC is using a rosin press or using a solvent like alcohol. Once you have extracted the remaining cannabinoids, you can dab your concentrates with a wax pen or vaporizer equipped to vaporizing wax and oils.


This is more of a last resort than a recommendation, you can smoke AVB. It won’t taste good! But it’s yet another way to get a second run out of your already vaped weed. The greener AVB is going to be more potent than the browner stuff but at the end of the day, it’s still further evidence of the benefits of vaping weed. Your bud can live another day to get you lifted.

Are you able to explain why you cant just pack AVB into a capsule, as its been vaped would it not already be activated (decarboxylation) and good for consumption?
