A few days ago I posted this picture on our Facebook page…70 grams of AVB (already vaped bud) and 1 pound of butter cooking away in a pot. Several Greenies commented and said, “There’s no THC in that bud” to which I just had to laugh…laugh in shock! Greenies, don’t you dare throw your AVB away; you are literally killing yourselves if you do. Vaped bud is PERFECT, and I mean PERFECT for cooking with. The process of decarboxylation or activating your weed is already done with vaped bud. Be sure to lightly vaporize your herbs until “toasted”, black vaped bud is no good. Staying between 350-375 degrees F is ideal, this way a lot of the cannabinoids are left in tact. When the vaporizer heats the weed this process decarboxylizes the cannabis converting the inactive THC-A and CBD-A into the psychoactive THC and CBD…ya know, the stuff that gets us high as kites. Using AVB is a very effective and efficient way to make edibles because we can extract the left over cannabinoids and bind them to some dank ass butter. As you can see in the diagram below when heat is introduced the carboxyl group -A (COOH) is removed, turning THC-A into THC. We’ve got activated weed! I’ve given you the knowledge, the challenge is up to you. Make some dank ass butter with your AVB. Send us some pictures, I’ll send you some stickers. Hit me up at ThisBuds4You@HailMaryJane.com.

Keep it green Greenies and OVERGROW THE WORLD!!!
