What does Already Vaped Bud (AVB) mean?
Already Vaped Bud or AVB is the marijuana left behind after being consumed in a vaporizer. These “grounds” can be reused in several ways to get high again using the same exact buds. This will not work if the buds have been vaped at too high of a temperature. If they are black, they have been overcooked and they probably should be tossed out. To avoid this, the vaping temperature should not exceed 428 F. If however, they are brown, they are still reusable. The process of vaping does not burn off all of the THC or CBD as smoking does, meaning the marijuana already enjoyed, can still provide more highs.
Already vaped bud can be consumed again in many creative ways. They can be directly eaten by adding them to any dish or dessert. They can be packed into a gel cap and swallowed. It can be water cured and stored. This is done by wrapping the AVB in a cloth and soaking in water for several days, emptying the water regularly as it turns brown. The cleaned off AVB can then be dried in an oven and used right away or stored for delayed enjoyment. It can also be used to make cannabutter or coconut oil.
AVB can also be used to make a tincture with alcohol; recipes online are abundant for uses of AVB. Probably the least useful way to reuse AVB is to directly smoke it. This will provide some amount of THC, but is not the most effective or considered to be the tastiest method of doing so.
