Are you looking to add a delightful twist to your traditional pesto sauce? Look no further! Our AVB pesto recipe brings a unique and exciting flavor profile to this classic Italian sauce by infusing it with already vaped bud (AVB). This simple and quick recipe will have you savoring every bite with a touch of cannabis goodness.

If you're unfamiliar with AVB (Already Vaped Bud) and unsure about how to save and use it, we recommend checking out our comprehensive AVB guide. It covers the basics, as well as some cool tricks and tips on how to maximize the potential of your already vaped bud. Additionally, you can find our previous recipes there.

While browsing through our AVB Guide, you'll also discover tips on water-curing your AVB (which removes the strong scent of weed) and making cannabutter (which can be used for cooking). Be sure to explore those sections as well.

For those who aren't particularly fond of the taste of AVB, this recipe is perfect for you. The savory flavors of pesto help to mask the residual taste of AVB. So, read on!

Materials needed:

  • Weed grinder
  • Food processor or blender
  • Cup
  • Teaspoon
  • Tablespoon


  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1/4 cup pine nuts (or substitute with walnuts)

  • 2 garlic cloves

  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon of AVB (already vaped bud)

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Toast the AVB: Start by lightly toasting the AVB in a skillet over low heat for a few minutes. This step will enhance its flavor and activate any remaining cannabinoids.

  2. Blend the ingredients: In a food processor, combine the toasted AVB, basil leaves, grated Parmesan, pine nuts, and garlic. Pulse until the mixture forms a coarse paste.

  3. Slowly add olive oil: While the food processor is running, gradually drizzle in the extra-virgin olive oil. Continue blending until the pesto reaches your desired consistency.

  4. Season to taste: Taste the pesto and add salt and pepper according to your preference. The AVB will add a subtle earthy flavor, enhancing the overall taste.

  5. Serve and enjoy: Your cannabis-infused pesto is now ready to be enjoyed! Serve it with your favorite pasta, spread it on a sandwich, or use it as a dipping sauce for bread and veggies.

Note: Remember to consume this AVB pesto responsibly, as the already vaped bud still contains trace amounts of THC. Adjust the amount of AVB used according to your tolerance level and intended effects.

Cautionary Note: Keep any remaining AVB pesto away from children and pets, as it may have psychoactive properties due to the cannabis infusion.

Enjoy your culinary adventure with AVB pesto! It's a perfect way to add a touch of creativity to your meals while savoring the unique taste and benefits of cannabis. Remember always to consume responsibly and in accordance with local laws and regulations. Happy cooking!
