you are ignorant and your post shows it legacy. nobody cares how well your "boys" take care of you, the topic is about uses of marijuana stems and if you dont have anything to contribute do everyone a favor and shut the fuck up. also stems dont weigh very much at all if the buds were dried and cured right, how the fuck are you going to get an extra couple of grams from stems? my advice to you legacy is to stop trying to sound like a jaded hard ass (what northerners call kind or krypto...wtf?!?), when you obviously dont know your shit. when you have a large bud (5 grams +) there will almost always be a fat stem running through the middle, if you had ever seen a plant flower from start to finish you would understand why as everyone has been trying to explain to your dumb ass.
sorry, had to vent, i hate people who talk shit out their ass.

uh..i usually buy in like quads (7 grams) so i receive a huge bud that hasn't been touched and ripped into shake, so naturally, it has a stem
i've never heard about someone complaining about getting stem in their bud. considering u've never seen a good count with a stem, do u always buy in small quantities from the same dealer for all these years ever since i've been in my "underoos watching Pokemon?"

this post has been up for way to long, all I read now is a whole bunch of shit. so just smoke those stems, it's not gonna hurt ya, now you're just pissing off a bunch of people that wish they knew a lot about bud, so just smoke them or throw them away, don't try to be cool and pick your nails with them or act like a hick and chew on it like straw, just smoke em or toss em.

I understand asshole. I've grown in the past. I am well aware there is a large stem
The only thing I am saying is I DO NOT GET STEMS IN THE BUD "I" GET.
AND, IF YOU WERENT SUCH A FUCKING CRACKHEAD YOU WOULDNT BE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WAYS TO GET FUCKED UP OFF STEMS.

Oh yeah, and If I didn't contribute I am very sorry, but it's a message board, so if you can't take constructive criticism you don't belong on the internet.
How dare you fucking judge me, you're a piece of shit for trying to flame me.

Yes! smoking stems will get u high! dont smoke a bowl though! using a small hitter [metal bat lol] i got a good high! I smashed them and cut them over and over to a nice powder![ be careful when cutting with a razor as the stems will fly away as ur cutting them] i then packed and smoked up to 6 hitters and got stonded lol ;]! A regular average bud from the 60s was about give or take 5%thc with about 1%thc in the stem! Todays average bud rates at about 13% and im guessing more then 1% in the stem! So with that increase and enough stems say .3 grams[ for the math impaired thats 1/3 of a gram of 1 gram lol} u will get stoned! and smoking seeds is the dumbest thing ive ever heard dont! not cuase of ur sperm! the chemicals in the seeds will damage ur cells in ur body! its like smoke straight from the campfire lol too much carbon dioxide, monoxide, which ever it is lol!

I toke my stems, smashed them and cut them repeated, then after its a fine powder with some small stems [if ur lazy! lol] but make sure u cut most of them or it will taste like stems. it will have a weird taste but not bad. then pack the finest powder that was made and smoke! ull get high trust me! smoke at least 6 to 8 hitters or pack small icrements so not to burn too much in a bowl!I smoked at around 2 am and my high wore off at about 330 say 4 as i was still playing my games! i never play video games unless im high! also though i bought food after i got off work at 1 am!i tryed to eat it sober but i couldnt so i put it to side thinking i wasnt going to eat it and voala after smoking the stems I eat my food like a dog eating food lol! animals are human too or is it the other way around lol! If have stems no weed! u can get high off stems


! warning ! smoke stems while ur sober[ like completely sober as ur tolarence will decrease and improve ur high!] Smoking stems after you have smoked weed at least 2 hours before will have no effect on u. Most people that think smoking on top of smoking will get u higher lol! its not beer or shrooms{ ahh i love shrooms I love the fuzzy warm feeling ahh great stuff!] fu to people who think otherwise about smoking stems! i tested it myself!

Warning Weed can be addictive Warning dont listen to people who say it isnt! Warning dont buy wet dank as the water will inrease its weight! dry bud is the best bud and is legit when it comes to weight! Warning Stems will get u high Warning dont listen to what others say try it! Warning LazyTown is a childporn lol Warning The increase In THC over the last 40 years can cause addiction, cancer, slight schizophrenia over time, and lung cancer! Warning resien is thc thats collects around ur throat, lungs and stomach causing eatting like mine lol!!!! Yes smoking THC is like smoking cigerattes! the smoke has a lot of resien or tar for tobacco this resien collects in ur bowl like it does in ur lung and clogs air and blocksoxygen from protectting allowing diseases to form where the oxygen cant! NOTE THAT DISEASE MEANS DIS EASE TWO WORDS MEANING NOT COMFTERBAL OR NOT AT EASE CAUSING DIS EASE IN LIFE REMEMBER WHEN A DOCTOR TELLS U THAT OR UR FAMILY! DIS EASE

WARNING WEED CAUSES HEPATITAS! Studys show that ur liver filters THC in ur body clogging it and depriving it of oxygen over many years of use say smoking 5 joints a day for a year!

WARNING weed was made illegal so u cant grow it urself! Allowing rich investors to monopolize the business! Dont beleive me!! America cosumes 50% of all the worlds drugs! in 1998 afganistan produced 70% of the worlds heron supply! in 1999 and 2000 the taliban raided the fields in afganistan as these drugs where agaisnt there views and burned them dropping afganisten produce to halting 0%! in the year 2001 america criminals claimed that afgan talibans attackked america, and in the 2003 afganistan started to produce heron again and provides now to this day 90% of the worlds heron! TALK ABOUT BULLSHIT! NUBS

I had some stems that were crushed to a powder. Couple friends and I tried smoking it and it wasn't very good tasting, kinda burned my throat and tasted like crap. The only high I got was this light headed feeling.

It actually wont hit you at all, unless there is a fair amount of alcohol in your tea. THC is not water soluble.

I was fooling around with a branch from a plant and i took some of it, chewed it up real nice and put it in my gum, over a rotted out spot in my back tooth that was bothering me. Sure enough less than 5 minutes later the pain was gone!!!! Thats my prescribed use for stemmage. =D

WARNING weed was made illegal so u cant grow it urself! Allowing rich investors to monopolize the business!

That info is false. I know this because I'm a college student who just recently did a research study and speech on Marijuana.

Up until the 1930's, Marijuana was REQUIRED to be grown in the US because it was a MAJOR export. Hemp. It was used for EVERYTHING. Clothing, ropes, linens...everything.

Basically, what happened was people from the North (Utah, Oregon, etc) started moving to Mexico so they could practice their religious beliefs (polygamy, because at the time it was against the law here), and the people in Mexico wanted to come to the states to start better lives for their families. Well, when the Mexicans came over, they introduced the Americans to SMOKING the Marijuana versus using it for exports and linens. This caused a HUGE issue with the government and pot was made illegal because quote, "it made even the purest of hearts turn to evil". So long story short-pot was made illegal because the government thought that it was an evil drug introduced by "crazy mexicans".

(I have referenced to back this up if you'd like to do some extended reading"

LOL Actually smoking marijuana does lower your sperm count and smoking stems and seeds lowers it more. Its called fact not urban myth. Get your facts straight. (I learned that in drug rehab from a counselor who would probably know better than you.)

Lol idiot, especially if you believe a person trying to steer you away from drugs. I got put in some drug counseling thing in school for coming in school late with 4 heads banging like weed after they took us to the office and got sent to the nurse to see if we were high, and only me and another person got sent home lol. The dude didn't know shit about drugs, I eventually just quit going to it because it caused me to miss shit in my english class, the dude was nice and all but all he did was lie he even claimed that regular cannabis doesn't even get you high and that its chemicals people add. He basically told us that everybody laces weed with chemicals and you can't tell...what a load of shit.

Obviously I'm still smokin' fuck em, still coming in school high too.

Leafs, Stems,Buds, its all considered pot so why the hell dont u guys just smoke the whole plant as nature grows it!! i on the second hand smoke completely the whole plant!! if u goit lots of cash to waist on rolling papers or just find one hell of a huge pape i recomend rolling an entire plant lol, It would prob last quite a long time(in my case). have fun stoners !


uh well stems don't burn well at all and i dunno about you but i think stems taste like *poop* when they're smoked and if you have them in the joint when you roll it it's more apt to break the papers. so yah what you said is bad advice.

i don't knowabout smoking stems though i wouldn't recommendf it.... but if anyone knows how to make hash out of stems, or how much you need to make ganja butter i'd greatly appreciate it. I just started saving my stems trying to not be wasteful :-)

I was given 2 pounds of stems and leaves.
I gave the huge bag to a (semi-)friend, who made fairly high-quality hashish for me, and kept half. At least, that is what he told me. I agreed.
He gave me 14 grams of hash.
I was very, very happy to trade stems and leaves for 14 grams of beautiful hash.

05-12-2009, 17:46
With stems i either bake foods or make hash. To do either i wait until i have at least a few ounces of stems. Both methods are a great way to use old stems and get something out of them.

HELL NO FUCK THAT

lol I am the most anti-stem smoking mother fucker you will ever meet. Ive smoked nasty ass resin from cans, Ive done diphenhydramine, Ive done a LOT of desperate shit to get high (including selling most of my Xbox games)

I never smoke stems. It goes against my religion (or something)



why do you want to smoke WOOD? Fucking nasty lol.. even if a tiny ass stem makes its way into my bowl and I smoke it I usually get a pretty bad headache.


Thats why I always pick out 100% of every stem in my nugs lol, I save them up too. Ive got way over a half OZ so far, cant wait till I can make hash oil!

I saved stems for like a year and then did a butane extraction on them to yield BHO. It wasn't a large yield in contrast the the volume of plant material but it was a top quality smoke and I got a bit back, would of got more back if my scatterred, stoned, dumb arse didn't evaporate it on a plastic container that I couldn't scrape like a third of my product off. I did use a lot of stems as I was smoking an ounce of good weed every 7-10 days for the most part of that year, plus a friend or two contributed a few stems too.

I have never done anything else to my stem collection but I really find it hard to imagine there is a better use for them, a butane hash oil extraction takes fuck all time and with a little bit of common sense it is really not dangerous at all, just dont evaporate over an open flame. Personally I had one large container filled with hot water which I placed the smaller container which held the butane/hash oil mixture in and occassionally topped up the larger container with hot water from the kettle. This method basically ensures you cannot light up your work space by exposing butane to a flame. A friend of mine burned up his kitchen trying to evaporate the same mixture on an open stove.

I guess you can use them for Edibles if you got like an ounce or so of them lol if you really wanna I would really just Vaporize or smoke them if possible sell them maybe lol er trade em to someone else for actual Buds yeah.

Im curious, is there anything in stems that could/can cause headaches?
Ive noticed that when I use my grinder to roll joints, I don't get so crazy with picking out every stem, and I noticed alot of the time it leads to headaches. Though not ALL the time, I was wondering if there is something in the stems, or other parts of the plant that could cause headaches.

I don't save my stems, I toss them, but I do save leaves/shake/vaped bus. I usually end up making butter, guess Ill start saving stems too, I just hate trying to grind them, lol.


This sure is an old thread.

Personally I make oil out of my stems+shake.

2 ways. You can soak them in iso for 24 hours and cook off the iso. Dark dark green oil, that tastes great and gets you MAD ripped.

Or you can grind it all up into a nice fine powder, throw it into a honeybee extractor, push some butane through that and you've got some nice honey oil.

The iso soak method seem to produce a significantly more potent product.

But if you kept the stems, you could have made the hash yourself and had an Oz.

When I'm out of bud and start feenin (usually when I can't sleep), I "vape" the stems. I don't burn them all the way cause the stem part is pointless. I just singe off the THC. Works best with stems from kush, since they garner the most THC.

Are you sure about 24 hours in iso? Maybe i'm too high right now, but I remember seeing that 30 secs only is necessary in iso, more than that will extract chlorophyll (hence the dark green). You might want to verify that info!

^ you're right.

drug_mentor
27-01-2012, 14:46
^ A friend recently made the mistake of an overnight soak and resulted in a black goo that was very harsh to smoke, although still quite potent. He informed me that a more experienced friend had infact confirmed that 30-60 seconds is all you want to soak the shit in iso for because past that just extracts chlorophyll which affects potency and enjoyability (as well as presumably health) to smoke.

I save stems for about 8-12 months and performs a butance BHO extraction on them (technically only done once), I got a pretty shitty yield but there were many factors I overlooked in undertaking the process in the most efficient way. For example I didn't grind my stems, I used less butane than I would of liked (it wasn't a full can and I lost some to the atmosphere before I got a good seal happening on the vessel my green was in) and then stupidly evapporated it on a plastic container (stoned, drunk and sharded stupidity hey... 8)) so I really got a small amount. Not sure how much more I would of got if I had my shit down pat better because I can't imagine a monster yield from a couple ounces of stems.

I have always understood BHO to be superior to iso hash, and honestly when sampling a friends iso hash only a fortnight before making my own BHO I found the iso hash to be 2/3 the potency at best of my BHO/honey oil.

My stem collection is getting back up there, probably only 60-70% of what it was when I did my last extraction but I figure if I took better care to not make some past mistakes I could possibly get a better yield? The only concern is I don't want to do it too early and get fuck all.

Definately keen on opinions between the difference between iso and butane hash, in terms of potency, yield, harshness when smoking and difference in the high (if any). I had my heart set on another run of BHO but if I get some responses saying iso is better I might go that route. The final question I would have is does iso evaporate at a rate similar to butane, if not would you say its quicker or longer to evaporate the iso? I do live at home and have limited oppurtunity for these types of experiments so time is definately a factor for me too. I found 70% or so of the butane evapporated really quickly but the last but just took ages and honestly even when I smoked it I reckon there was still a little in there... My method for evaporating was filling a lerger container with boiling water and then placing my smaller vessel with the BHO/butance mix inside that, so as to avoid any open flame and potential fire hazards.

Depending on how much you have in stems and how much, if any, trichome coverage there is, I would either make oil or if I only had a little bit, add it to some high-end vodka for nice-flavored Potka. If we're talking big jars full of stems, though, I've frequently been able to extract extremely potent oil just from stems. Obviously you don't get a huge amount of smoke, but otherwise, they're pretty much rubbish. I do chew on the odd stem every now and then because I like the taste, but nowadays I collect all stems (and thoroughly, extensively trim buds in a draconian fashion, even if they've been trimmed decently already) and leaves for making batches of oil.

woamotive
27-01-2012, 21:58
If you have a good amount - which you do, at least that is the impression I get from the OP - I'd make hash (oil). I don't know anything about this 'Potka' so I won't write anymore (than I have) regarding that. I DO know many people who use stems (+ other pieces of the plant trimmed off pre curing stage) to make hash (oil) with great success. There are plenty of guides on how to do this proplerly online, or in reference books.

Enjoy! -- don't smoke them.

27-01-2012, 22:25
I don't save stems myself because I think it's not worth it, but there are trichomes on the stem itself (I was just looking at some a second ago), so it's not a complete waste of time and I can see the attraction.

Here's an example:

Btw here's a random point - did you know tomato plants have trichomes?

edit: and the tomato trichomes lol:

you don't need a large quantity of stems to make edibles. as the pics above show, you can clearly see the crusted-on trichomes on the stem. you can see 'em with the naked eye.

what i do is to boil it in milk.

i've never made this "bhang"/"tea" or whatever you'd call it with only stems (usually use leaf/tip/trim or vaped bud and add whatever stem i have to that mix) but it seems like a fair bit of stem will pack an extra punch.
yep, butane or iso hash is also a viable option, but if you don't have much to work with, boiling a bit of cannabis (ie the bits of the plant not worth smoking unless you have a shitload of bud) is a great way to use it. no need to make massive batches, you can dose quite effectively with a bit of practice.

28-01-2012, 08:21
It's probably an old myth, but I got told that the stems contain chemicals that can make you sterile. But same goes, they taste like shit when smoked, so therefore I would have thought they contain more carcinogens than flower and more tar. That's why I don't smoke them, but if there was a way to use them and actually get a high from it, I'd do it.

I think Everclear gives the oil a better overall taste.
