I don't think I've ever heard of this, although I know people make wax and dry ice hash with fresh buds. Had anybody had the chance to try vaping this way? Since we are not combusting, some of the curing processes for creating smooth smokeable might not be completely necessary for our needs. Anyway, it's 4/20 and I was able to get my hands on a little fresh bud that had been harvested earlier this morning. E-Nano turned up to 11, and just vaping off the exterior trichomes, leaving AVB that looks much like dried/cured cannabis. I can say that it definitely does work, and works quite well to produce a complex effect that is a little different than anything I've experienced. Perhaps this is a way to boost terpenes by not letting them evaporate away over the several weeks it takes to cure. I'm definitely a special kind of high right now, and I like it. I'm going to have to figure out a way to keep a little freshly frozen bud around here.
