Others may refer to it as ABV (Already Been Vaped) cannabis, but I prefer the term AVB (Already Vaped Bud)."
AVB refers to cannabis that has been used in a dry herb vaporizer without being completely combusted.
Using a dry herb vaporizer allows you to reach the perfect temperature for vaporizing essential cannabinoids like THC and CBD while avoiding the combustion of the herb. This efficient method ensures a potent high without wasting any product or exposing you to harmful toxins, offering a clean and enjoyable experience.
Vaping sessions typically end when several factors align, including a decrease in vapor production, a decline in flavor intensity, and a noticeable change in color to a deep golden brown. The specific timing can vary based on your preferred temperatures setting, and in my case, I find that the ideal temperature for me is 390 degrees Fahrenheit.
To avoid combustion, it's important not to let your AVB (Already Vaped Bud) get too dark. Stop vaping when it reaches a consistent deep golden brown color. For a more satisfying experience, consider stirring the material after a few puffs to maintain the full intensity of the flavor.
At the end of your vaping session, I recommend storing the remaining ABV (Already Been Vaped) cannabis in a specific container.
The residual THC in AVB (Already Vaped Bud) has already been activated and decarboxylated during the vaping process. As a result, it becomes suitable for consumption and retains its psychoactive properties.
This means that even in its vaped form, AVB can still be used in edibles and will produce the desired high.
Here are a few ideas on how to utilize AVB and the best ways to consume it:
Although smoking AVB (Already Vaped Bud) can still get you high, it's important to note that the potency of the remaining cannabinoids has been diminished through the vaporization process. Additionally, the smoke from smoking AVB tends to be harsh and unpleasant.
Smoking AVB contradicts the very purpose of vaping, as it reintroduces harmful elements and undermines the initial intention of opting for vaporization. Many stoners switch to vaping dry herb to avoid inhaling undesirable and toxic components associated with combustion, often referred to as 'combustion toxins.'

The little THC and other cannabinoids in your AVB are already activated, which will still induce a euphoric effect when consumed. However, incorporating some fat into your AVB consumption can enhance the experience.
While fat doesn't activate the cannabinoids further, it serves as a medium that facilitates better absorption of the residual cannabinoids in your AVB by the stomach. Personally, I like to mix my AVB with peanut butter to create a delightful PB&J sandwich.
Alternatively, you could mix it with flavored yogurt for a tasty, quick, and convenient consumption method. Determining the potency of AVB can be influenced by various factors, such as personal tolerance, vaping duration, and temperature settings.
To establish an appropriate dosage, start with one tablespoon and allow a minimum of two hours before considering additional amounts.
It's important to proceed cautiously at the beginning until you become familiar with your tolerance level and discover the best dosage for you. It's important to note, overindulging can lead to undesired effects, so it's best to exercise moderation and gradually adjust your intake.
The extraction of cannabinoids is a straightforward and widely used method to extract THC for cooking or direct consumption.
Once you have the infused butter, the possibilities are endless, as you can incorporate it into any recipe that requires fat.
One classic choice is to use it in baking brownies, as they provide an excellent canvas for incorporating the infused butter and enjoying the effects of the cannabinoids.
Here is my step by step recipe:
Encapsulate in Pills (Cannabis Caps): You can shove the AVB in a caps, and, as we mentioned before, it's preferable to mix it with oil.
As for the AVB dosage; 3-7 capsules may get you too stoned, again it depends on your tolerance, for how long this AVB has been vaped, and on what temperature (darkness of the AVB can give you an idea of its leftover potency).
If this is your first time, make sure to take one capsule at a time, and to wait at least 30 minutes before taking the next one.
Using alcohol to extract THC and other cannabinoids is similar to that of fat, slightly more challenging, though, and inherently more risky (fire danger). You will, however, end up with cannabis infused alcohol (that sounds amazing and a bit frightening).
Vodka is often used, but any 80-proof alcohol will work. Lower-proof alcohol can be used, but higher strength alcohol will be more efficient for dissolution. The highest-proof alcohol is recommended, but with a slight increase of fire risk.
