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. 

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

Great topic as I am finding myself with some reasonable quantities of this lately. I used to sprinkle it on buttered toast and eat it. It has sort of a popcorn nutty taste depending on how hot you vape it. Lately I use it to make a late night cup of tea. A bit of butter kicks it up some and I sleep like a baby. Interested in hearing other ideas. The  issue of figuring out a dose can be tricky, it depends a lot on how long you vaped that bowl as to how potent it is.

I was about to start a thread regarding AVB, and saw this one, so I figured this would be a good place for added info on the subject—

So what do we know- It is already decarbed, and contains residual THC.  But nobody talks about ratios. Now, I realize dosing is touchy and should be approached slowly and carefully, but realize, AVB is not a straight 1:1 substitution for flower or trim!  

Recently I was chatting with @marge after I read an article where it was “suggested” to use 1 cup AVB to 1 cup Oil ! Because there is little to no info on how much AVB to use, I started asking questions and my own trials. Marge stressed an abundance of caution, because dosing is personal (everyone’s metabolism is different as well as individual tolerance levels).

This is informational ONLY. I am sharing my recent experience (I’m just sharing what I did, I’m NOT recommending this, dosing is YOUR responsibility). 

So, Mrs. Sevans & I have been experimenting using 100% AVB. Without the current ability to check potency, we went with what we know, and that’s how much infusion we put in our morning coffee (Mrs. S uses small measuring spoons to dose, I’m a guy, I scoop out a glob with my switchblade, LOL).

Before we had readily available product, we’d use 7g flower (store bought) to 1 cup oil/butter. With the flower being in the 18% THC range. This is what we based our original dosages on.

I read that AVB has about 3-4% residual THC remaining (no test data to support this claim). If I use the same rule we used with store bought flower (7g to 1 cup oil, and taking potency into consideration), that would imply I need approx 1-1/4 ounces of 3%-4% THC AVB for the same ending potency, as our baseline infusions. 

I weighed out 1-1/4 ounces of AVB, it came out surprisingly close to 1 cup (more like 1-1/2). So my earlier research, where I read someone suggested 1 cup AVB to 1 cup oil, doesn’t seem too far off. In fact, that would seem to be on the safe side (an assumption on my part)!

After measuring everything out, I put the AVB in a 120 micron bag and rinsed it until the water was coming out clear, I rung it out, and spread out the washed AVB on a large cookie sheet, stuffed it in a 200F oven (after I turned the oven off), and let is sit over night. Next day, it was slightly damp, not wet. Then I proceeded to make my infused oil. 

Sampling the end product, I thought I needed a tad more in my coffee for a comparable effect, next time I’ll borrow a knife from the Aussie contingent (sorry, lame Crocodile Dundee reference). Mrs. S says her normal dose is just fine for her. I trust her opinion cuz she has a lower tolerance and she measures her dose.

So, my conclusion thus far, for my personal preference, if  I’m using 100% AVB for an infusion, I will use similar ratios mentioned in my comments above (4-5 times the amount of product per cup of oil).

Side note- The prior infusion I made was mainly trim and some unwashed AVB. The end result was effective, but not pleasing to the eye. As you can see from the pic, washing helped, I don’t see any dirty dark brown, as before). The other thing I noticed, much weaker weed taste, coconut is the dominating flavor. Bummer, I like the weed taste LOL.

First pic- this is what our typical AVB looks like. 2nd pic is this batch of coconut oil (washing AVB will be part of my process, this is something I WILL recommend)!

Great point- and for the folks ready this, realize, the info I provided, that’s based on how we vape and the kit we’re using. 
that will be different for you guys. Even using the same kit, different temps, dosing capsule- yes or no, etc. 
all things that’ll make my AVB different than yours. 

I figure, with the money saved from being self sufficient, I see a t-check in our future, but I had to buy the flowerpot first LoL

I grind up the AVB using a coffee mill to a fine powder, put .62 grams in 2 gel caps(size 00) and that's "MY dose". For some kind of reference to potency I'll say that we usually vape weed with around 20% THC and vape temp set at 195°C / 383°F. It took me awhile to zoom in on the highest dose without green out, I had a few go to bed, directly to bed, do not pass go nights. So experiment but beware of the green reaper. Best part is you don't have to taste that vile burnt weed, some like it and some don't. 

We just smiled n waved sittn there on that sack o seeds

@monkeydo Ardent Cannabis often does articles on using AVB or decarbed weed directly in recipes.  Sometimes you can save alot of time doing that and depending on what you're mixing it with, the nutty flavour of the decarbed weed can be a nice pairing.  Buttered toast (with PB too!) and pizza would both be great!  I've used it mixed with flour to bake cookies and didn't notice much of weed taste but results might vary! 😉

Life is short, eat the edible.
