Already Been Vaped (ABV) — Cannabis Before & Photos

Vaporized cannabis that's Already Been Vaped is called ABV for short. Here I took a series of photos throughout the vaporization process so you can see the compound effects of heating cannabis below the point of compustion but high enough to release all of the THC, CBD and other cannabinoids.

In this photo sequence I use Da Buddha at a fixed temperature, but another photo sequence you can see the effects of different temperatures throughout the vaporization process. Know this, there is no best temperature to vaporize marijuanam only what works well for you.

Vaped Herb: Before and After

  • 1. fresh weed nugget

    Indica nugget

  • 2. freshly ground weed


  • 3. after 5 vape hits

    5 vape hits

  • 4. after 12 vape hits

    12 hits

  • 5. after 20 plus vape hits

    20 hits

  1. 1. fresh weed nugget

    1. Indica Marijuana Nugget Ready for Grinding:
    Notice the color, lush green and fresh looking, not too wet or dry; this will grind nicely.

  2. 2. freshly ground weed

    2. Freshly Ground Weed, Ready to Vape:
    A medium-fine grind and we’re ready to vaporize. Many vapes perform better with finer grinds. A few extra taps and grinds helps.

  3. 3. after 5 vape hits

    3. Herb After 5 Hits in the Vaporizer:
    The weed looks light brown after 6 hits in a plug-in vaporizer on medium temperature. Notice some faint green? You’re more than half way done.

  4. 4. after 12 vape hits

    4. After 12 Hits it’s Already Been Vaped (ABV):
    Mostly done. Note the brown monotone color, earthy and depleted looking. It’s also dry and crispy to the touch. Nothing really left to vape.

  5. 5. after 20 plus vape hits

    5. Fully Cached After 20+ Hits:
    Turning up the heat we draw the few final hits, the weed is tasting dark. There’s a faint odor of brown herb — it’s fully toasted, and so are you.

Should You Save ABV?

Some people save it to smoke later, or eat it, or even put it in capsules. These days I tend to throw mine away, the taste of the above options isn't very pleasing. Smoking ABV generally only offers a buzzed headache anyway! Your results may vary, so experiment.
