what to do with leftovers from making cannabutter

For many of us who hate to throw away this precious medicine, we wonder about what to do with these remnants. Luckily, cannabis consumers have spent a lot of time figuring out how to recycle these scraps. So, check out these three ways to use your cannabis scraps instead of just throwing them away.

While most of the cannabis compounds wind up in your oil, butter or milk, not all of them do. There’s still a ton of therapeutic ingredients in this pulp that you don’t have to waste.
To reuse your cannabis this way, you should first put it through a blender to make sure it has a smooth and even consistency—no one wants to bite down on a stem while they’re eating.

There are all kinds of cannabis crumbs that may come from:

  • At the bottom of their stash jar
  • Stuck in the crevices of their grinder
  • Littering their rolling tray

So, we know how to use up all of our cannabis crumbs, but what about after we’ve made our edible base? The process of making cannabis-infused oils, butter or milk usually leaves behind some cannabis pulp (the scraps that you strain out of your butter or oil, for example, once it’s infused).
Once you’ve made your edible base, you can use your butter, oil or milk in whatever recipes you like. With this method, you never need to toss your cannabis crumbs out again.
When you’ve picked out a good oil, pour a little bit into the extract container. If you’re using a tank, you may need to pop part of the tank off to access the concentrate. Make sure the oil is touching all of the extract in the container, and then close it up. If you’re working with parchment paper, you can put the entire thing into another container.

So, how can we recycle this cannabis pulp? Many people choose to use them in high-fiber dishes to add even more fibrous material to the meal.

If you consume cannabis, you’ve probably noticed that sometimes you’re left with a lot of scraps. There are the stems, dust and leaves stuck in your grinder or rolling tray, the post-vape plant material from your vaporizer, cannabis pulp left over from making edibles—there’s even that little bit of extract that gets st

Just something to think about. I use 4 ounces of trim for every pound of butter. But trim doesn’t have near the resin content as big buds. And everyones dosage is different. I prefer slightly more potent stuff.

Anyway, you have pretty much stripped the essential oils from the plant matter, and it is now in the butter’s fat content. Sure, they may be trace amount floating in the water, or left on the bud, but really not enough. Seeing how the bud is drenched in water and butter, its fairly useless. I throw it out.

Make sure to pour more water through the buds and cheesecloth to get any left over butter out.
