How to Utilize Vaporized Leftovers Effectively

How to Utilize Vaporized Leftovers Effectively

I can recall the last session I had with my colleagues; we were vaping while discussing the benefits of vaporized leftovers. Was it advisable to throw them away or keep them? Is it possible to get high from smoking vaporized leftovers? These are some of the questions that popped up during the vape session.

Actually, it has taken me six years since I started vaping to realize the importance of vaporizer leftovers. I know you may think it is just a leftover that needs to be thrown away, but that’s a misconception.

Many people often assume that the vape leftovers are useless, thinking that all the THC has been extracted. But that’s not true. The fact is that there are many cannabinoids that are still left untouched in the vaporizer leftovers.

What you need to understand is that unlike combustion, vaporization only activates the ingredients but does not denature the proteins, so that all the original properties do not get exterminated or diminished.

According to a recent study, it was found that vaporized cannabis could still possess up to 20% to 30% of the cannabinoids compared to before vaporization. A majority of cannabis enthusiasts do not mind using the ‘leftover’ as an active ingredient for a variety of cannabinoid infused edibles. It beats throwing it all away. Everyone wants to get value for their money and get the best out of their product with maximum benefits.

Vaporizing is a trend that is catching on slowly but surely. People are slowly shifting how they consume their weed through vaporization. For users who want to consume their dry cannabis for medicinal purposes, vaporizing is one of the best ways for you to get the best medicinal benefits out of the dry herb.

Here are some ways that you can consider to utilize your vaporized cannabis leftovers.

Preserve the leftovers

Using a vaporizer is a great thing for consumers because it helps them collect vaporized leftovers easily. There are various ways you can re-use the vaporized materials to process butter, well-known as cannabutter. Cannabis chocolate is also another product that can be processed using vaporizer leftovers. This is a great alternative for those who consume medical cannabis.

Grind It Up!

Grind the residue into finer powder to get better results. Try it and you’ll be amazed at how good it works. Re-use it in the vaporizer or use them to make vaporizer leftover hash. Once you’ve vaporized the weed and you have leftovers, another option is smoking it.  After vaping your dry herbs, the leftovers get activated due to heating. Hence, the medical cannabis that had undergone vaporization still contains therapeutic cannabinoids.

Make Capsules

OMG!!!!!! If you have not tried this yet, then you need to get on this bandwagon as soon as possible, like pronto. Capsules are an amazing way for you to carry the weed around with you discreetly. You can even use coffee filters to make the capsules. There are loads of instructional videos that explain how it can be done. The best thing about this product is that it can stay good for up to 2 years and provides a stone for up to 5 hours. Incredible, isn’t it?

Bake the Leftovers

During the first round of vaporization, there is an extraction of majority of the active ingredients. Nonetheless, previously vaporized weed can still be used for brownies, cookies, candy, chocolates, just to name a few delights. (Talked about it on point 1 no?)

There is so much you can do with weed; you can play around with flavours and come up with mint chocolate by using mint and weed as an additive to the chocolates. In spite of the popularity of using vaped leftovers in edibles, there are always some people who just cannot get around its taste. It is an acquired taste; depending on the treats you make, you may find the product tasting funny due to its bitter or burnt taste and scent.

Consider Brewing It

In the event you are not big on baking, then you can decide to make some tea with your weed leftovers. You can brew it in the coffee machine or even just boil it to make a cup of ‘weed tea’.
