6 Creative Ways to Add Moisture to Over Dried Marijuana

Here are 6 of the most unusual ways to add moisture to over-dried marijuana, so you can enjoy the best smoke possible.

1) Lettuce for Over Dried Marijuana Buds

Iceberg Lettuce for Marijuana Moist

To be exact, Iceberg lettuce, as this type has the most moisture. Simply take a few leaves place it with your buds in a container and presto, the magic will happen after a few days.

2) Orange Peels for Over Dried Marijuana Buds

Similar to the lettuce trick, you simply take orange peels and place it in a container with your buds. There is one problem though with this method; your bud will get an orangy smell, which not all smokers like, so opt for a different method if you are not a fan of citrus fruits.

3) Wet Cotton Balls for Over Dried Cannabis Buds

Wet some cotton and place it in tin foil. Poke the tin foil to make some holes for ventilation. Place it in a container next to your buds for a few hours and watch as the nuggets become moist again.

4) Fresh Bud Mix for Over Dried Marijuana

Take some fresh bud from a plant that is high in moisture and put it in a jar with some bud that is dry. Should do the trick and will keep the scent natural and won’t introduce any non-ganja elements into the mix.

5) A Very Small Sponge for Over Dried Marijuana

Wet a small sponge or a piece that is cut off and place it a jar with your bud. Make sure the piece is relatively miniscule to keep the moisture at the right level.

6) Humidity Pouches for Keeping Marijuana Buds Fresh

If none of the above work you can always pick up some humidity pouches from Boveda.

Additionally, if you’d like to prevent your buds from drying out in the future, opt to always store them in air tight containers with humidity control packs. This will prevent future hassles, that’s for sure.

    Citrus Aroma

    Orange peels really work great. I like the citrus aroma that gets added to the powdery buds, apart from moisture. So that is why I like to go for this option. Will try lemon as well, sometime.

    Rehydrating

    I put my dry buds in a Ziploc bag and rolled it up as tight as I could without damaging the nugs, sealed it and let it sit in the sun light for about 20 minutes and moisture is back.

    Simple quick way of Hydrating buds

    My experience with rehydrating my buds is very simple and effective. Peel an apple put the skin ( and a few chunks ) put it on the new china( paper plate )😀microwave until it’s cooking remove put your buds on on side cover with another paper plate and let it sit for a bit. It doesn’t leave a taste in the buds but check frequently so it doesn’t get to moist. 15 min. Should do it depending on amount

    I held the zip lock bag with weed in it over steam from my humidifier. Worked good.

    Reviving you weed

    Flour tortillas is by far the best. There is not alot of moisture in them,and they will dry out before they mold. If you forget about them ist ok ,because it takes a long long long long time for them to mold.

    I used a baby bell pepper!

    I cut a baby bell pepper in half and put it inside the glass jar with the cannabis (lid on) for 30 minute increments. I ended up keeping it in there for an hour and 30 minutes. It worked great! I’ve never used a bell pepper before but I’ve used lettuce & orange peels before. I don’t even really like bell peppers but it didn’t affect the taste or the smell of my weed, in my opinion. You just don’t want to leave it in there too long because if it gets too moist, it won’t light & that is not good.
