how to fluff up compressed weed

Re-fluffing smashed buds?

  • Is there any way to “re-fluff” smashed buds? I accidentally sat on some really good looking frosty Jack Herer buds, and now they aren’t pretty anymore, and look like they are more fragile now.

    I thought about lightly moistening the bud with a couple DROPS of water, letting the moisture homogenize throughout, and then freezing the buds so the water expands and increases the volume of the bud..
    BUT then I realized that this would probably rupture a lot of the THC glands causing degredation.

    Is there any other way that doesn’t sacrifice quality?

  • just cause it’s denser doesn’t mean you’ve lost bud or potency

    same thing anyways.

  • Wow nice guys, real helpful!! I asked a simple question, and I didn’t ask for your comments on the subject of WHY I would need un-smashed buds, you were just blindly presumptuous.

    but for the record. No I do not plan on breaking it all up and smoking it. The reason I need unsmashed buds is marketing. a buyer of mine wants to buy some, and he’s a true cannabis connoisseur. Smashed buds will not make a good impression with him, and I would feel the same way so I don’t blame him. it seems like there are some noobs here so a quick lesson.

    “Flat” or non-voluminous buds are often an indication of improper harvesting techniques. The texture, shape, and volume of the buds are all good indicators of how well it was harvested and cured. The ideal end product should be somewhat voluminous—with most strains that is, and Jack Herer is one of them. Almost every single time I received “flat” buds they were sub-par in their EFFECT. Also, when flat you cannot see the full color range of the trichomes, pistols, or shape of calyxes.. and all of these are crucial to rating the quality of buds.

    Sure you can think “just tell him you sat on it,” but when your dealing with buyers with VERY high standards that just doesn’t cut it, the first criteria on which buyers rate the bud is appearance, excuses aren’t cool, even when valid. You could also think “just offer to sample it before buying.” Still, though the high would be the same, some people just want weed that looks good and healthy simply for aesthetic reasons (e.g. to impress someone, if it is being stored for a long time–this isn’t uncommon in my circle). And this bud looks nowhere near as impressive as looked originally.

    So there you have it. I hope you learned something. Next time please JUST ANSWER MY QUESTION.

    Is there any way to "re-fluff" smashed buds? I accidentally sat on some really good looking frosty Jack Herer buds, and now they aren't pretty anymore, and…

    adding fluff to your ganja?

    I compress some of my skunk as tight as possible. I can crumble it easy with my hands. I think that the weed tastes sweeter and as its compressed u can fit more weight and weed in ur blunt or joint.

    I find it tastes sweeter and u get a heavier high as ur smoking more herb than u could usually fit in a blunt.

    I can see why some sellers would want to fluff their weed as it will make it look like twice the amount. And people want fluffy weed. Me i would just roll that shit up and light it.

    An O of some good shit usually goes for around 350$, no less. the rest always seem to fluctuate around 300$ give or take.

    Every once in a while some fire mids come through, but never stick around.

    putting that shit in a microwave might make it lose some potency. When the bud gets hot in there it will vaporize some of the thc cristals (just like a weed vaporizer). Then again if you didnt see it giving some light smoke when it was cooking, ur probably on to something.

    What makes that retarded? Thanks for the elaboration, you must be a huge asset to this forum.

    I do use a coffee grinder, something i wish I’ve used since I first started smoking, but I see no harm in trying to improve the aesthetics of it.

    edit: when i say sack, I’m not talking about just a few grams(yes that would be retarded to go through the hassle of expanding that), much more than that. Unfortunately around these parts kids seem to care about more how the bud looks rather than how well it smokes.

    do you know that no matter how compressed it is, its still the same quantity? wetting it and cooking it, even just for a few seconds is probably (more than likely) boiling off some thc and turning it directly to steam. so unless u like getting ur microwave high, and wasting some of the dro’s potential, just keep it dry and grind that shit in a space case, preferably with a kief catcher. but if u like what u do to it, then continue on, u r the one who asked for our opinion tho.

    Also, if you are doing it in order to get rid of it, then i feel sorry for the ignorant buyers/friends around you. Some of the best shit i’ve ever smoked came in SOLID bricks, so more fits in a smaller space u just have to chop it up!

    I find that if you want a smooth hit it needs to have a little moisture. I did find out the hard way that re-moistening the whole bag leads to mold (I could smell it but I never saw it).

    Here is what I do. Grab a tupperware with a lid and if you dont have a grinder grab something that is cup shaped that you can easily fit inside of the tupperware (coffee cups, smaller tupperware, you can use anything as long as it seperates the herb from the wet towel).

    I grind the bud that I am going to smoke in my grinder, unscrew the bottom of the grinder, grab a 1/4 of a paper towel and moisten it (make sure it is not soaking wet – squeeze all excess water out) with the hottest tap water you can get (dont burn yourself), and put that in the bottom of the tupperware, put the grinder bottom / cup on top of the paper towel and put lid on the tupperware.

    Now get your pipe out – fill your bong – make yourself a drink – get comfortable – just give it a few minutes to do the work 10 minutes at the most. When you are ready to smoke open the container the herb should not be wet but when you pinch it you will notice that it is not dry.

    Not only will it burn more smoothly and evenly, but your hits will be a LOT smoother than with dry bud and you get rid of the “dry weed headache.”

    Try it before you knock it – do a side by side – one bowl with dry bud and one bowl with my method to see what works better. I never smoke dry bud.

    This will also help J’s / blunts burn a LOT better.
