Yes! You can reheat your bowl which is both economical and good for those us who are too lazy (like me) to refill it 😄
However there’s a few things to know about vaping the same bowl twice :
1. it will taste not so great on second round
2. depending on the temperature you initially vaped at, you’ll lose some properties on second round as they’ve been vaped off
3. it only really works if you used a lower temperature and/or took only a couple draws on the first round.
Tip: Before reheating your bowl, give it a stir, especially if it’s a conduction vaporizer, convection vaporizers heat more evenly however even they can use a stir.
This also depends on the type of vaporizer you’re using, the bigger the bowl, the more times you can reheat the cannabis. Some vaporizers I can reheat up to three or four times if it’s a big bowl. Other vaporizers, like the Arizer Air uses a smaller bowl and can usually be reheated twice, if you’ve didn’t use too much during the first session.
How to know if you can reuse your bowl
Take a look at the colour of the weed- you can scrape off the charred bits on the top- if there’s still green you can reuse it. If it’s brown all the way through it’s no good. You may be able to get something from it but the taste will be so awful, you won’t want to.
*note: you can feel more burnout from reheating a bowl, CBN (a cannabinoid that can make you feel sleepy) tends to be higher after vaping, best to do this in the evening and refill your bowl with fresh herb during the day.
Once the bowl is spent, dump the used cannabis into a jar and save the AVB (after vaped bud) however keep your cultivars (strains) separated if you’re using it for edibles, as making edibles from several different cultivars can have a bad feel. If you’re planning to reuse your AVB for topicals, you don’t need to separate them. Keep in mind if you’re using AVB for topicals, much of the THC and other properties will be reduced from being heated.
