Dry-herb vaporizers are an incredibly popular way to consume cannabis; The resulting bi-product of vaping dried cannabis flower is brown, dry, and brittle, but, can make for very potent cannabis infusions or even cannabis edibles that don’t require any infusion what so ever. Learn how to use vaped cannabis in edibles below.
Is Vaped Cannabis Considered Decarboxylated?
Decarboxylation, or decarbing, is an essential process in making cannabis edibles. Cannabis is not psychoactive in its raw form and this process ensures that valuable cannabinoids, such as Delta-9 THC, are properly activated. In addition, decarboxylation also prepares cannabis for bioavailability, a process that allows cannabis to have an effect as an edible substance.
Vaped cannabis is considered a decarboxylated cannabis substance and is ready to infuse into oils, or, use in no-infusion recipes like the ones we have below.
Can Vaped Cannabis Be Used in Edibles?
Yes, already vaped cannabis can be used in cannabis edibles.
After vaporizing dried cannabis, a consumer is left with brown, often brittle, cannabis flower material. Before throwing this material away, take a minute to reflect on the process of decarboxylation.
Vaping dried cannabis achieves a very similar result to a traditional cannabis decarboxylation. Depending on the temperature of your vaporizer, this ‘waste’ material can be used to infuse butter, oil and more.
How to Use Vaped Cannabis in Edibles
The maximum temperature you should operate a vaporizer at if you want the use ‘Already Vaped Bud’ in cannabutter or cannabis oil is 440 degrees Fahrenheit (227 degrees Celsius).
At higher temperatures, combustion begins to occur and the cannabis flower material is no longer useful for cannabis infusions.
Vaped cannabis is often high in a cannabinoid known as CBN, a potent sedative. Using vaporized cannabis in infusions or edibles may have a different effect on the consumer than traditionally decarboxylated cannabis.
Start saving vaped cannabis for future use in edibles. Store vaped cannabis in a cool, dark place, preferably in a glass container with an airtight seal.
