Older and drier weed isn’t as exhilarating to smoke as a cannabis stash, but there are many effective ways to bring dry weed back to life. Whether you’ve found some weed you forgot about or your new stash started to crumble after being stored improperly, the right methods will help you save your weed and bring it back to life. Read on for the best ways to re-hydrate dry cannabis buds.
Place A Citrus Peel With Your Weed
If your weed is giving up the ghost, try using this citrusy hack to give it a new lease on life. Cut off a layer of the orange peel and put the peel in your weed container. After a few hours, your weed should feel moist again. Be sure to check on your weed every so often to make sure your buds aren’t overly hydrated as this will cause mold.
Fresh out of oranges? If you have lime or lemon, this hack will also work. Similarly, use a small piece of apple (which can also serve another purpose) if you hope to avoid adding a citrusy flavor to your marijuana.
Bag Your Weed with Lettuce
If you have lettuce laying around your fridge, you already have the materials you need to give your old weed an extra boost of moisture. As iceberg lettuce contains 96% water, this is one of the most effective ways to hydrate dry cannabis buds. Put a piece of lettuce in a bag next to your dry buds. After 2 – 3 hours, check on your weed to see how moist it is. Oftentimes, the lettuce method will leave your weed as fresh and hydrated as the day you first purchased it.
Rehydrate Your Weed with Fresh Cannabis Flowers
Growers that already have fresh buds of weed can use this to rehydrate their older buds. Hydrate dry cannabis buds with these damp cannabis flowers by placing your old bud in a container with a freshly-harvested cannabis flower. Over the next few hours, the new cannabis should effectively moisten your older weed.
Bag Your Bud With Bread
While bread and weed may seem like a strange combination, just one slice can completely transform your old weed. Put your bread and weed together in a bag overnight. Once you check on it in the morning, your weed should be as good as new.
Re-Hydrate Your Weed with Paper Towels
If you have paper towels at home, you’re already equipped to give your weed the moisture makeover it needs. Take advantage of this hydration hack by placing several sheets of paper towels in a container of water. Then, place these paper towels in a bag with your weed. Poke a few holes in your bag and wait a few hours to check on your freshly-moistened marijuana. Keep an eye on your weed to make sure it isn’t at risk of developing mold from too much hydration.
Throwing away dried out weed buds can be just as painful as smoking old weed. Before you chalk your expired weed up to a loss, be sure to try these tips to freshen up your stash.
