Harvest time is one of the only few times of the year when one might wonder, “What use will I find with all this extra marijuana?” while you’re cultivating your own pot. Even if you simply grow one or two plants, you’ll likely wind up with more weed than you plan what to do with, with an average of 14–12 lbs per plant, or around 112-224g. You can conserve and store your buds, but they won’t be as fresh as they were when you picked them. It is also possible that after a few months, you’ll be sick of smoking the same item.
So, if you somehow find yourself with a lot of weed, here are some extra uses for it.
Rosin is a fantastic chemical-free concentration that you can prepare at home. Rosin is created by collecting the hot oil that is obtained from squeezing buds in between a couple of heated plates that flows out using heat and pressure. Using some parchment paper and curling iron, you could produce rosin by squeezing buds until they crackle.
Alternatively, you may spend a few hundred dollars on a rosin press. The majority of presses include a device for packing some of the plants into small packs, which are subsequently pressed. You then go ahead to remove the weed from the parchment paper after pressing, scrape a bit of rosin off with a tool that can be used to dab it off, and place it into your preferred dab rig.
Cannagar is a cannabis cigar. You’ll probably need a few friends to finish this hefty log of cannabis, which is a new fun take on on a Thai stick. You’ll need a specific mold to build one.
Grind around 2-3 grams of weed and place it in the center of the mold, which contains a stick running through it. Allow it to firm for a few minutes before pulling the stick out so as to allow some air to flow out. You can use rolling papers to wrap it in. To really spice it up a notch, dunk it in a hash oil concentration and wrap it to give it a Thai stick feel.
Edibles are a terrific way to consume marijuana without having to smoke or vaporize it. So, what are edibles? They are food items that have been laced with marijuana. To make these, first, break down your cannabis to increase surface area, then decarb it and cook it in butter. The THC will be able to bind with some of the fat contained in the butter, allowing you to produce brownies, biscuits, cookies, cake, and other baked goods with the cannabutter.
Bubble hash is a terrific, inexpensive, and simple way to turn leftover cannabis into hash without using chemicals. Bubble hash, also known as ice water hash, is made by breaking trichomes off of plants and buds using extremely cold temperatures, which are then are collected together to create a hash.
Bubble hash is named by the way it melts down, then bubbles up, and its “meltability” is measured. The most refined bubble hash is “full melt” or “six-star,” with measurement going completely down to a single star. You’ll need a significant amount of the plant to make even a tiny amount of powerful hash. Starting with at least a few grams is a good idea.
Weed tinctures are the epitome in discretion, as they don’t leave an odor and may be taken with just a few drops under the tongue for immediate relief. It takes a bit more time to create this product, but it will last a long time. By soaking flowers in ethanol alcohol, tinctures can be created (like Everclear or moonshine). An ounce of cannabis every 750mL jar of alcohol, or around 3.5g per 3 fluid ounces, is the recommendation. After decarboxylating the weed, place it inside a jar with the alcohol and shake it daily for a few weeks.
Make sure to save the extra weed that you cannot smoke by pressing or infusing it the right way. Store it in a good airtight container in a dry location away from direct sunlight.
