Coming up with original ways to use up your shake and trim shouldn’t be too difficult of a task. If it is, then you have way too much shake or trim on your hands. In case you’re not sure what you have lets clarify the difference. Shake is what you get when tiny pieces of bud break off in a container or bag and end up on the bottom of it.
It kind of resembles weed that’s already been broken up. Trim is the excess from harvesting buds and clipping them to manicured perfection. Leaves from trim will have trichomes on them but frequently will not provide the same euphoric buzz that shake will. Either way, if you have some of either on hand, there are many different things you can do with it.
