    I just dropped the abv of the week in my abv jar and found there were a lot of yellow crumbles in it... i crushed a bit of ABV and it is a mix of brown and greenish-yellow... i add the same amount of fresh bud finely ground... and it just looks like a normal pile of weed its almost as if theres no abv in it.


    seems like a good idea if one wants to make bigger loads but not use so much more material... must be more efficient and give a more full bodied high too... dunno but i might make a habit of it, especially until i get a refill because my stash is more than halfway done now... Only downside is if I drop revaped abv in the same jar, it darkens over time and loses avg potency after lets say 30-50% of the jar was vaped 2 times and is very dark brown

    oh yeah!
    Doing the abv again is great especially if the first session was with low or moderate temps.
    Gave a guy my abv , and he came back and wanted to buy some! I just gave him some more.
    I usually revape in my Supreme at 190- 200c. Great night time effect.
    As far as mixing goes , it may look the same, but does it taste the same?

    I usually don't vape my ABV too dark. I like to get a couple 10 or 15 min sessions from my Enano from the same load. I will save the stem filled ABV for later use. The second session the light ABV has shrunk down a bit from moisture loss. I will top it off with a tiny bit of flowers. This will freshen the load. I do this with my Solo too. I don't normally vaporize at too high of heat. I like to taste the good flavor of the vapor.

    I'd recommend looking into other herbs to extend your stash (nothing wrong with AVB though!

    Some herbs like lavender and lemon balm leaf contain the same terpines that are in weed and can alter the high of your herb. Lavender, for example, has a relaxing effect due to the limonene terpene. These herbs can be bought for dirt cheap, so it's a fun and tasty way to experiment with your high. You could also order some hemp buds (high CBD, no THC) for a stash extender as well.

    Here's a cool article about terpenoids and their effects.

    I tied using AVB as a "spacer" in the IQ. Lost all flavour of the new herb and tasted pants.

    true... this is why i tried lavander, chamomille, mint and some other things. Cuts the taste with a better taste than abv... still cuts the taste though... I dont seem to find cheap hemp buds but that would be the best taste wise!!

    I went the "pot helper" road once and it works but the option will set on the shelf till supplies get really really short.
