What Is Leftover Cannabis Pulp

I recently received a question over on Instagram from a reader who said “you’ve got the best cannabis cookie recipe and the easiest way to infuse coconut oil! Is there anything I can do with the leftover pulp?”

Leftover cannabis pulp is the cannabis flower material that is leftover after the straining process when making either cannabutter or cannabis-infused coconut oil and even a cannabis tincture.

While some folks may argue that the spent cannabis flower is garbage after the extraction process has taken place, many counter-argue that the leftover weed material is full of beneficial nutrients, compounds, and even cannabinoids.

As a Holistic Cannabis Practitioner and a registered dietitian nutritionist, I am inclined to value all parts of the plant, especially for a full-spectrum experience. As long as you like the taste and enjoy it, it’s great to reuse and recycle cannabis plant byproducts wherever possible.

How Much Pulp Should I use?

If you’re brand new to cannabis edibles, it’s important to note that it can oftentimes be difficult to estimate your final product potency. It will be even more difficult here to estimate the potency because many of the cannabinoids will have already been extracted during the cooking process.

Ultimately, the potency of your leftover weed material will depend on two things, the potency of your starting material (i.e. buds, flowers, or trim, regular vs CBD flower), and the cooking process you have already used.

For these recipes featuring cannabis pulp, it is recommended to start low and go slow. We recommend starting with just a 1/4 cup leftover flower pulp addition and going from there.

This will give you time to experiment with not only the potency but the taste too, as the spent cannabis flower can have a very strong taste to some individuals.
