How to consume the rest of your vaporized marijuana
Vape pens have several advantages over smoking, most notably the fact that marijuana does not go through a combustion process. Translation: There are no ashes, which results in healthier lungs and a longer lifespan for your cannabis residues.
While most of the THC in marijuana disappears upon vaporization, there are some remaining cannabinoids that can be reused in different, and sometimes even effective, ways. Here are some things you can do if you don’t want to throw away those leftover buds:

The easiest and most logical thing to do with your little pieces of weed is to make something tasty with them, hoping to get relaxed and maybe even a little bit high. Baking is always a good idea with all types of marijuana to mask the weed taste and highlight the benefits of the cannabinoids. Since the marijuana has already passed through the vape pen, it is ready to use and easy to add to your kitchen. Just be careful; There is no way of knowing how strong your edible will be.

Since the cannabis has already been burned, you can simply sprinkle it into any dish or snack you want. You can cure it with water to remove the strong taste by placing the marijuana in a cheesecloth and marinating it in water for a couple of days, or you can add it to really strong flavors that can mask the taste. Peanut butter, Nutella, and hot sauce are really good options for this.
