Anyone who uses a vaporizer to get those regular doses of THC to the brain understands that there is an element of waste involved at the bottom of the barrel, so to speak. This is when the THC cartridge resides in that toker purgatory between bone dry and one more hit.
Call it being frugal, or just plain cheap. But there are ways to ensure every last drop of THC-liquid is squeezed out of those cartridges before tossing them in the trash. After all, there is nothing wrong with catching one final buzz before bringing in a replacement.

The first step is this process is removing the liquid from the cartridge. To do this, it is necessary to heat up the mechanism without burning up the liquid inside. Any heat source is fine. But it is important to avoid using a direct flame. Doing this only stands to ruin the liquid before it can be repurposed.
Once the liquid is out of the cartridge, it can be used in a variety of ways. People who enjoy joints that burn slow and hit hard can use the remaining liquid to twax.
Basically, this is a method used to decorate the inside or outside of joint with kief or concentrates. The THC liquid is not a bad way to bind these byproducts to buds. It is especially good if you don’t have a dab rig sitting around the house. But then again if you do, dabbing the leftover liquid is always an option for getting the final buzz out of a vape cartridge. Because of the consistency of the liquid, it is not going to hit like shatter, but it will work.
Yet, if the thought of going new school is a bit too scary, there are easier options for using up the last of those cartridges. This stuff can be heated up and poured on top of the buds packed in bowls and bongs, too. Think of it as the hot fudge on your stoner sundae.
