I also save the leftovers from tincture making and recover the little left in them to use in a topical pain cream. The ABV isn’t entirely flavorless, but when I wash my ABV and use in cooking, baking, tintures and elixers , I barely notice the flavor. But seriously, i’ve done plenty of water curing before vaping with great results. Place the satchel on a large baking sheet or casserole dish and open it up. Pour out all the waterlogged AVB and evenly cover the dish.
Mix your weed in an alcoholic beverage that is at least 90 proof and let it sit for a few hours, or even days. You will then want to strain the mixture with a cheesecloth and pour it into a clean dropper bottle. There are ways to eke out more life from your already vaped bud . Before tossing out your toasted grounds, consider the numerous other products—including edibles and beverages—that you can make with those leftovers.
So you wouldnt tend to water cure for a tincture? As i cant imagine it will taste nice either way, so i am considering skipping the step entirely. Hi everyone, i always store my water cure abv and use it when iam out of buds. I do the double amount in my vape and crisp it a bit to lose the stuff a bit and i can say i get good results with it and this gets me almost high . I dont understand people they get a rid of they avb and put it in the trash …
So in this case, water curing really improves the flavor of any edibles, cannabutter, or coconut oil you make. A clear pyrex bowl filled with equal parts of boiling water and canna-coconut oil is the best bet. You get to watch the water gradually turn from a murky mess to crystal clear after each successive wash.
A gentle stir with a wooden spoon is all that’s required. This oil washing method also works to remove most of the taste/smell for non-avb oil – for those who dislike any noticeable taste of herb in edibles. Water curing will remove the flavors from your herb completely, but none of the THC and CBD.
I am hoping a sublingual tincture will be more effective. Also thinking i might just start off with a 30ml – ish run as its my first time. I’ve smelled sewer vents that smeeled like cananbis! Seriously, thought they were growing in their basement but was a leaky sewer pipe…. Kept looking around all day while on that job wondering who’s growing around here LOL…
Can’t really imagine much of an active principle left there. I have read many articles on water curing, but I have never done it. The most likely use would be in the water curing my AVB. If I do that I need to get the excess water out before making the tincture or waste large amounts of ethanol. The price of ethanol and the fact that I really filter my tinctures and I decided against it. I live in California, so Everclear and other high proof alcohol isn’t available, and it works fine with regular vodka, or whatever spirit I choose.
Change it at least 5 times or till the runoff is slightly yellow. Once your toast has reached a nice golden brown remove it and spread on a layer of peanut butter. On the other piece of bread, spread a layer of Jelly. Browse 34 avb stock photos and images available, or start a new search to explore more stock photos and images. Since the AVB was already vaped (uh duh?) that meant that the decarb process already happened. I was excited to skip the decarb process in the oven.
I keep the oven door open slightly to maximize airflow and hasten the process. Give the AVB a mix every 30 minutes or so to allow everything to dry out evenly and quickly. It took about 2 hours to dry the AVB completely, this will vary though, just be sure there is no more moisture. There will be a slight, and I mean slight, decrease in potency of your end product. The amount isn’t noticeable, and again, it’s well worth the trade off for a more enjoyable experience.
But if you can’t be bothered, pair your AVB with strong flavours – think Nutella, peanut butter, BBQ sauce, hot sauce, etc. If you’re the proud owner of a Volcano or similar vaporizer, you’ll know all about ‘already vaped bud’, or AVB for short. I found it a real pain to try to strain the oil from to loose avb before, so I wanted to see if this would be any easier. It wasn’t too bad to stir it around in the cloth as long as the balls weren’t tied too tight. A very simple and tasty recipe for chocolate is 1 part coconut oil to one part cocoa, sweetened to taste with liquid sweetener of choice.
It was strong, and I need to cut way back next time. The flavor was barely noticeable, and not unpleasant. For me, washing is just the next step before using in salve, tincture, etc. It’s an easy way to get rid of much of the smell and flavor. I use the ‘dirty’ water that runs off to water plants.
You’ll need to cut the cheesecloth into a few squares. These will be used to wrap up the AVB, like making a giant homemade tea bag. Use a few pieces per satchel to ensure you won’t lose any AVB through the mesh. Next, you pour the water away, then refill it to the top, give it a stir to loosen it up, then let it sit until the next water change. It is advisable to leave your pot in a dark cupboard out of direct sunlight if it is the glass version. Unless of course, you just get a press like mine.
Now that vaping has become more common as a nicotine replacement aid. Some people are still unaware that a vaporizer can be used for cannabis as well…. There are a few options from here, but there are three I prefer to use. The first is to add it into some coconut oil or butter into a crockpot and make canna oil or cannabutter. If you are concerned about the little left over, Swish some water around inside then pour it through your cheesecloth and strainer. Otherwise, Like me, jump straight to the drying process.
Save, water cure, and effectively extract your AVB for potent edibles. This reddit thread has a lot of good info on water curing if you’re looking for more info. Also, using distilled water can help a lot with avoiding mold, especially if you are going to water cure for a week. Now you can do whatever you want with it from here. This process doesn’t completely remove the smell/taste of the AVB, but it does help considerably. This is really helpful because when you’re vaping on the go, it’s not always easy to clean out and reload your vape.
