What to do with Cannabis that has Already Been Vaped

Powerful Vapes and Powerful Buds

If you have a strong vape like the SteamCloud Box Mod or the Yocan Uni Box Mod, then you know how powerful those devices can be. Box mods are notorious for producing strong clouds of vapor reminiscent of actual smoke, though such puffs are expected when utilizing e-juice or oil concentrates.

Dry herbs seldom produce those awe-inspiring clouds, though they are more than capable of getting the most out of your dried cannabis. In fact, any vape capable of utilizing dry herbs will eventually leave you with a dry, fluffy, and crispy material after it is all said and done.

This usually means the end of a vape session but can be the beginning of a whole new endeavor. This is even more capable with a high-quality strong medical indica or sativa strain. While CBD strains can be used as well, you will get more bang for your buck using stronger THC and hybrid strains.

Why Bother Using Vaped Bud?

Let’s face it, we are all trying to stretch our dollars, especially nowadays. There is nothing wrong with that and saving as much money as possible is a smart venture when considering the situation concerning our economy.

While it goes without saying that we could all use a little financial boost, reusing vaped weed is not a bad idea. There are only a few instances where vaped cannabis is no longer capable of being salvaged.

If you find that your vaped herbs are very dark brown, or even black, then it is highly unlikely that they will be able to be used for anything. However, it will do no harm to attempt doing so. Some people like their coffee black, some like their buds brown in a tea. To each their own.

Vaped Cannabis for Wax Pens

If you are familiar with rosin and alcohol extraction methods, then all you need to know is that you will typically need more vaped herb to get the same amount of wax. If you have never tried this before, then all you will need is a hair straightener, some parchment paper, and a spoon.

Heat up a hair straightener to 300 F. Place the parchment paper on the lower portion of the hair straightener. Place your vaped herbs on top and fold the parchment paper over the herbs. Squeeze the hair straightener plates together firmly, but not too long otherwise you might risk burning the paper.

You will notice a viscous brown liquid emerge from the pressed buds. Collect it with a spoon and repeat the process until no more rosin can be collected. Use a fine wax pen like the Yocan Evolve Plus or other high-quality wax vape to get the most out of your wax concentrates and enjoy.

Cannabis Coffee and Tea

The trick with having a great tasting beverage using vaped herbs is making sure you incorporate the use of milk or a milk alternative in your coffee or tea. Because milk has fatty compounds that essentially trap cannabinoids like THC and CBD, you could heat up the milk and the dry herb together for an hour and get a great result.

Unlike using a microwave, you can control the heat on a stovetop and ensure you do not over-boil and destroy the compounds inside the cannabis when using this method. Once you have successfully extracted your cannabis in the milk, all that is left to do is strain it using a cheesecloth.

The best part about using this method is being able to use larger amounts of vaped cannabis, and depending on how much you actually vape, you could have quite a bit! Therefore using these methods is a real money saver.

Vaped Edibles

From cannabutter to cookies and brownies, edibles comprise most of the vaped material into a reusable product. Keep in mind that when using vaped weed to make edibles, you will need a considerable amount to achieve the desired effect. This is especially true if your goal is to use these edibles for medicinal reasons.

Always wait until you have enough vaped cannabis before you attempt to make edibles out of them, otherwise you will end up with a result that produces no effect while wasting the product you had. Fortunately, making cannabutter is easy using vaped herbs.

All you will need is a cup of butter, a cup of water, and a cup of vaped herbs. Mix them all together in a saucepan and let it simmer. Filter it through a cheesecloth and let it sit in the fridge for a day. You will end up with a potent butter that is great on anything from crackers to popcorn! Any recipe you have that calls for butter can be substituted with this.

Medicinal Pills

Perhaps the easiest of all the methods for using vaped herbs is to use them inside of gel capsules. These can be purchased over the counter at your local grocery store. The reason why this works is because vaped weed has already been decarboxylated (heated up). This is the only way it can have a medical effect when consuming.

Mixing vaped weed with a fatty substance such as coconut oil will deliver the compounds readily into your system to ensure its effects. While it is widely known that ingested cannabis produces a much more powerful and profound effect, using vaped weed is better suited for those who are new or looking for a much milder effect.

Those who are sensitive or have low tolerances for CBD or THC will have a much better experience with edibles and pills using vaped cannabis. No matter what method you use to recycle your vaped herbs, always make sure you store enough of it to be able to utilize it in a meaningful way.
