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.
