Cooking with Vaporized Weed

These days Marijuana users are seeking out more healthful ways to consume Marijuana. That’s why many of us own vaporizers like the Volcano, Vapor Genie or one of the many homemade variations of. For years I disposed of my vapor “remnants” or “vapor poo” (who came up with that anyways?) into the trash receptacle. Not anymore! I learned an awesome trick last year while browsing online forums. You can actually cook with your left over vapor remnants! How awesome! Would this actually work? I was skeptical… but now I never throw away my remnants! They are literal green gold for edible production!

Preparing the vaped weed for consumption is easy. All you need is a mini slow cooker. Any should work, but personally I use use the cheapo $10 version from Walmart or Target. I keep several around for when I am doing multiple batches. Nothing works better for cooking marijuana than a slow cooker.

You are going to adjust how much butter you are going to use based on how much vaped weed you have. You need the butter to at least form a melted layer to protect the weed from losing valuable potency. Just make sure the butter covers the top of the weed when melted. This shouldn’t be hard if you used a grinder on your weed before vaping. Potency of edibles and dosing is a little bit more tricky when making marijuana goodies from vapor remnants. First put your butter in the slow cooker. I start with a single 4oz stick which is a 1/4 of a cup of butter.  Turn the slowcooker on low and place the butter in the slow cooker. Wait for your butter to melt and then add your vaporized weed. Put on the lid and come back and check it in 20 minutes. You can get a bit of a buzz off of this, so make sure to stand with your face above the slow cooker and inhale deep. This is going to smell up your house! Get a fork and lightly stir, ensuring the coating of your vaped marijuana. If everything looks good! Close it up and check it once an hour to stir for four hours. If it looks like you have quite a bit too much butter / marijuana ratio.. you may want to add some stems or a few crushed up buds to increase the potency of your marijuana. You can do this anyways if you would like a stronger butter. I recommend grinding any marijuana added to your butter.

When 4 hours is up get yourself a sink strainer or a tea strainer that will fit over the mouth of a cup. Take the cup and put the strainer over the cup. If it isn’t steady get someone else to help you with this process. Drain the butter through this simple sieve catching all the marijuana bits as it goes through. A little bit is going to stay in the butter – don’t worry about that for now. Use a spoon to press up against the bulk of the marijuana matter to squeeze out the rest of the butter. You are going to have to do this a few times. So take the pressed and squeezed marijuana and set it aside in a cup or receptacle. Perfect. Now to get a cleaner clearer butter you are going to want to add an extra step. Using cheap knee high pantyhose (you can get two for a dollar at Walgreens) drape one knee pantyhose sock (clean and new!) over the mouth of a clean cup or bowl then take your pre-strained marijuana and run it through this simple filtration process. Cool the butter in the fridge and you have a versatile butter made of recycled marijuana ready to go into many recipes.

Coming soon in a post about Marijuana Milk, you will learn to use all of the plant matter saved from your butter cooking adventure. Stay tuned!

  47. I had no idea that vaporized weed could actually be used. I think most people discard of it after they are done with it, but it makes sense to try and find a second use. It’s sort of like people using the leftovers from their “juicer” machine when making fruit and vegetable juices. Often times there is a lot leftover that the juicer can’t turn into juice. Seems it applies to medical marijuana as well!
