Some people call it "the duff." Some people called it AVB (Already Vaped Bud). Others just call it what it is: what's left in your vape after you're done a session. It usually looks something like this: golden brown and crispy.
Many people assume that all the THC has been extracted, and bud is
1. Save it up
Some bigger-batch cannabutter recipes recommend using anywhere from an ounce up to 40-60 grams of already-vaped product. As Bustle's Rachel Krantz puts it, "You'll need about twice as much of the duff to make the recipe as strong, and it won't be quite as tasty - but hey, leave no trace, right?"
2. Grind it
If you've done your homework, you're already sold on the importance of grinding: "I really can't stress this point enough," writes The Vape Critic. "I can almost guarantee that grinding finer will get you better results if you're not doing it already, especially with a vape like the Pax." But if you're going to cook with or otherwise consume the AVB, it's necessary to grind it again into an even finer, powder-like consistency, exposing any remaining available THC in the plant matter. All the more reason to invest in a quality grinder.
3. Cook something
If your palate isn't particularly refined, whip up some firecrackers with Nutella or all-natural peanut butter and toss them in the oven. If the thought of sprinkling toasty, post-vaped weed on a bunch of crackers doesn't tantalize you, we hear you on that.
4. Make capsules
"By putting your AVB into capsules, you can easily carry them with you and take them when you want discreetly," writes
5. If there's ash, it's trash
Never try to cook with, or otherwise consume, remnants that appear black or ashy. Gross. On this note: if what's left in your vape seems burned, not lightly
6. Start small
Leftovers vary in strength: a potent strain will yield more potent AVB - and, as a rule, a lighter
