Having extra weed is both good and bad. It’s good because it’s better to have too much than run out! But at the same time, you may not know what to do with the remaining marijuana.
So when you have extra weed, what should you do with it? There are several ways to use it to your benefit in different ways. And you’re about to find out how to put leftover weed to good use!
So read on and discover five ways to use extra marijuana to step up your life!
1. Bubble Hash (Ice Water Hash)
One of the most common ways to use extra weed is to make bubble hash. Bubble hash results from separating trichomes from marijuana flowers or trim. You make hash by using ice, water, and filter bags.
To make bubble hash, you need the following supplies:
- Large bucket (1-to-5-gallon)
- Bubble bags
- Cannabis buds or trims
- Spoon to use for mixing
After you have your supplies, follow these steps to make yourself some bubble hash:
- Layer your bags into the bucket
- Fill your bucket halfway full with water
- Add your weed and then the ice until the bucket is full
- Stir everything for up to 20 minutes
- Turn each filter bag inside out and collect the resinous trichomes
After lightly pressing the moisture out of the bag, you’ll have your bubble-hash!
2. Rosin Tech (Pressure Extraction)
You can also use extra weed to make rosin tech. Rosin tech is very potent and produces a clean and pure high from the concentrate. To make rosin tech, you’ll need a rosin press.
If you do decide to get a press, follow these steps:
- Grind up your weed
- Put it in a press
- Put parchment paper on top of it
- Use pressure to squeeze out all the oils
The oils will be in resin form to heat to make hash oil. With hash oil, it’s easy to dab. When dabbing, marijuana smokers use what’s known as a dab rig. The rosin tech from cannabis produces a potent high, and flavorful weed.
3. Cannabutter (Hash Oil to Butter)
Another way to use extra weed is to make cannabutter. It’s a mixture of butter and cannabis oil, so it tastes great! But you can’t make it with straight cannabis because there’s too much THC. Due to its high THC content, you have to be very careful when cooking it.
You may be wondering since you can’t use cannabis on its own, what can you use? If you want to make cannabutter, cannabis trim and ghee are all you need.
First, chop up the cannabis trim into small pieces. Then, heat the ghee on another stove over low heat. Stir it occasionally as you wait until it’s completely melted. Afterward, take the trim and put it in a glass bowl. Then, pour the melted ghee over it. Lastly, put the lid on and let it sit overnight in the fridge.
The next day you’ll have cannabutter ready to enjoy!
You may have extra weed that you want to smoke; consider making a cannagar. It’s the best way to use extra weed if you are in a bind.
It’s best to get a mold if you want to make cannagar. Pack the mold with ground-up cannabis and let it sit for three hours.
While it’s sitting, the cannabis binds together and forms a cannagar “core.” Now, all that’s left to do is rolling, gluing, and then finally curating the cannagar!
There’s no doubt that cannaoil tastes better than just plain old cannabis oil. So, it’s worth the extra effort to make your own if you have time. But, if not, cannabis oil will still do!
5. Cannabis-infused Edibles
Are you a fan of edibles? Then think about using extra weed to make your own cannabis edibles! Using weed butter (cannabutter), you can make all kinds of fun edibles. A few examples of delicious edibles are pot brownies and cookies.
Concentrated cannabis-infused brownies are delicious and offer health benefits too! When making brownies or any kind of edibles, they can be as potent as you’d like. It all depends on how much cannabutter you choose to use.
Experiment and try making different edibles until you find some that hit the spot!
So there you have it! These are some of the most popular ways to use extra weed. Using different weed allows you to be creative. Plus, your cannabis won’t go to waste!
If you’ve never used weed these ways, now’s your chance to give them a try!
