One of the best things about Christmas (if not the best) is the food! Christmas cookies, chocolates, and the big one, Christmas Dinner. We can already taste the roast turkey, delicious stuffing, and tasty pigs in blankets. Why not add a kick to your Christmas Feast this year with some AVB? Make the most of your dry herb and enjoy your dinner with a little bit of difference this year. Just let your grandma know to stay away from the stuffing…
What is AVB?
For those unaware, AVB stands from already vaped bud. It’s a term which refers to dry herbs which have already been vaped through a vaporizer. Basically, the remains in your device’s oven when you have finished your session. AVB should be brown in colour and have an extremely dry and crisp texture. A common mistake some people make is throwing away their AVB thinking it may be of no use. Little do they know, there are still some psychoactive ingredients and it can be quite potent when used effectively.
Adding to your Feast
The easiest way to incorporate AVB into your food is through cannabis infused butter or oil. The primary difference however is that AVB has already been decarboxylated so you are able to skip this step. Simply place your bud into a pot/slowcooker with butter or oil and cook for 2-3 hours on a low heat. Make sure to stir occasionally to avoid burning then let the mixture cool before straining.
