People who prefer to vape their cannabis have a lot going for them. Vaping is easier on the lungs, has a less noticeable odor, is easier to get away with in public places. But the one unintended consequence of vaping over smoking, what to do with the excess herb? Marijuana hat has Already Been Vaped (ABV) still retains a fair amount of THC, but not enough that smoking will be very effective. Still, waste not, want not, right? Many folks who vape primarily will store their ABV, also called decarboxylated herb, to save for cooking, or capsules that produce a pronounced but lighter body high than they got during its initial vaporization. Here are all the things you can expect to need to make the most of your Already Been Vaped cannabis.

 

A Note on Dosing

One of the great things about using ABV is that you can make sure to use every part of the buffalo (or cannabis plant, that being the case). It is important to exercise caution in your dosing. While ABV does contain less THC than non-ABV cannabis, storing it over time until you have a sufficient amount to reuse does mean you cannot easily estimate how strong your cannabis will be in its second round. It is reasonable to assume that it will have less intense effects, but err on the side of taking less at least until you have a practical estimation of the strength.

Vegan ABV Cookies

These cookies would be great with or without your ABV. The low- sugar, low-carb recipe contains flax instead of eggs, meaning it will taste fantastic, and keep you feeling full, before the effects of the cookie start to kick in.  

 

Orange Extract

ABV is also extremely helpful when creating your own extract. This process can take a few days, but the end result is an herby, orange-flavored tincture. By soaking ABV in orange extract for several days, the remaining THC is pulled into the alcohol, creating an effective and tasty creation.
