How to Reuse Reclaim

Check out how to get reclaim, that gooey gold, out of your gear here: How to Clean and Collect THC from Rigs and Vapes.

Diligent stoners recognize that wasting weed is, well, wasteful. It feels bad to be wasteful. Throwing your stash away for no good reason makes no sense! That reclaim in your rig is not waste though (and can be up to 60% THC), so take the time to clean your rig thoroughly and stash that reclaim away for a rainy day. If you don’t take the time to reclaim your reclaim, you are wasting opportunities to get high for free!

So, clean your rig! Wait until you can see a build up of orange to brown residue, and harvest! Be careful with your rig and attachments while cleaning – take special care. Once you have thoroughly removed the residual oil or shatter from your rig, you will need to decide what to do with it… If you choose to store it, keep it in a silicon puck, just like your dabs. If you choose to use it, start with this list for inspiration!

1. Eat it!

Although it doesn’t look the most appetizing, it’s the easiest and quickest method. Smear your ‘claim on toast, crackers, chocolate… the opportunities end only where your imagination fizzles out!

2. THC Tincture

Keep a little of that Everclear handy in a dark glass bottle (like the ones essential oils come in) and put the reclaim back in there. Shake it up really well, and use it as a tincture.

3. Reclaim Cocktails

4. Add Reclaim to Joints, Blunts, & Spliffs

Melt or rub reclaim on to or into a joint. It can be hard to work with, so be careful not to tear the paper. Smear it along the paper on the inside before you roll, or along the outside after you’ve rolled it, and spark up!

5. Reclaim capsules

Make cannacaps without the mess of coconut oil extraction. Buy 00 capsules (found at the pharmacy) and put a little into each. Don’t get carried away, remember it is a concentrate!

6. Sleepy-time Hot Cocoa

Make some reclaim hot cocoa! Get a cup of milk on the stove, add some of your reclaim and some hot chocolate, and let it slowly come close to boiling. Stir. Take off the stove and serve up right before bed for an easy insomnia cure. Drink this on an empty stomach for increased effect. Also check out this genius hack for potent hot cannabis cocoa.

7. Season your New Dab Nail

Your reclaim can season your new dab nails. Seasoning your nail is personal preference, but is usually done with wax or oil. Use your reclaim as a cheaper alternative.

8. Variety of Edibles

You can add the residual oil or shatter to any recipe and create a high potency, discreet edible. Consider using a small amount of reclaim in a single serving cupcake!

9. Dab it, of course!

Just dab it. It may not have the same flavor as it first did, but that residual THC will still get you high. It won’t hurt and if you are in a pinch, it might just save the day.

10. Vape it

Do you own a vape pen? Use it in your vape pen! Many people think dabbing your reclaim can affect taste, so chuck it in your vape pen if you don’t want to dab it.

Reclaim is great for insomnia, a relaxing day-long date with Netflix, aches and pains at lower doses, tossing into a snack before a hike, or for stashing and keeping for emergencies. It is a concentrate, so remember to take it easy and be responsible if you are eating this product. Start small, wait two hours, and see what happens… Redosing is not recommended!
