What is ABV weed and what you can do with it

Did you know that you can reuse your cannabis buds after you’ve vaped them? Even though most think that by vaping your flower, you’re already getting all the benefits you can from it, the truth is that there’s still more left that you can reuse. That’s actually one of the main advantages of vaping vs smoking your cannabis, which allows you to get more out of your buds, unlike smoking which turns the bud into ash.

So in order for you to get the most bang for your buck, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most popular things you can do with AVB.

What is ABV or AVB?

ABV (already been vaped) or AVB (already vaped buds) is marijuana that’s already been vaporized. It has a distinct brown color and not as strong of an aroma as a fresh flower. Although many people throw out their already vaped bud, assuming it’s garbage and that they’ve already gotten the most out of their herb, the truth is, there’s still some more life left in it that you can benefit from.

Although you can use already vaped buds for many different purposes to get the most out of your stash, before you do that there are a few things you need to know about using AVB and how it works.

As we already said before, AVB is the leftover cannabis that you get after you vaporize it. However, not all AVB is the same. Depending on the temperature you set your vaporizer to, the potency of your flower and the method you choose to use your AVB for, you can expect to get different amounts of potency and benefits from your already vaped bud.

Provided that you don’t use your vaporizer to the max, and you stick to a range of 315-440°F (155-225°C), you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how much of your bud’s potency is still left in it. Remember that the lower the temperature you set your vaporizer to, the higher the potency of your AVB will be.

So you might stop throwing away your vaporized buds and start storing them for later use.

Top Uses of ABV/AVB

Here are some of the best ways you can use your AVB for.

Sprinkling AVB on Food

A pretty common way to use your AVB is to simply sprinkle it on any type of food or drinks. Although not everyone likes the taste of it, this is undoubtedly the easiest and fastest way to use AVB, without bothering to cook or prepare anything.


Another pretty popular method of AVB consumption is making capsules. Capsules are an easy way to ingest ABV cannabis oil, because they allow you to regulate your dose easily, while still providing you with the desired effects.


Same as with fresh flower, cannabutter can be prepared with AVS as well. You can either use a slow cooker, a regular stove, or a specifically designed cannabis butter machine, such as the Magical Butter Machine, which can save you a lot of time and effort. You can use AVB butter to prepare all kinds of edibles and marijuana infused drinks. You can integrate AVB butter to any meal you want, or simply spread it on a piece of toast and eat it.
