No, they will not have THC in them.. The THC resinates on the leaves when the buds do, in flower.. Best you could do is make some compost with them.

Could you perhaps roll a joint with leaves?

Yeah, but I wouldn't smoke it unless you wanted a nice chlorophyll tasting headache.

Yes they do, and yes you can. Theres just not aas high of a concentration of cannaboids as it is in the buds. THC is in every part of the plant

Leaves do have some thc, usually less than 2%.
THe order of thc % is as follows Not potency but amount of thc inside the plant matter, of course trichs are at the top, but we are talking green growth here.

Flowering meristems
Flower bracs
Sugar leaves
small fans leaves
Small stems in and arounf flowering bracs
larger stems
Medium Fans
Sun Fans

I tried to smoke some leaves from one of my plants that died (R.I.P.) and I got maybe minutely high. It was probably just a headrush from holding it in to long and the left over resin in the bowl.

If they were in flower, I would agree with the rest of you. He said they never hit flower, so unless he was growing a lot of plants, their wouldn't be enough trichs to make much of anything. He's better off using them to aid his next crop. My .02.

leaves contain cannabinoids. in all phases of growth. To substantiate this, as opposed to just asserting it, here's a read from Ed Rosenthal and Mel Frank.

Variations by Plant Part


The concentration of cannabinoids depends on the plant part, or more specifically, the concentration and development of resin glands to plant part. The female flower bracts have the highest concentration of resin glands and are usually the most potent plant parts. Seeds and roots have no resin glands. These shoe no more than traces of canninbinoids. Smoke seeds will give you a headache before you can get high. If you got high on seeds, then there were probably enough bracts adhering to the seeds to get you high. {Figure 29 The highest concentration of stalked resin glands forms a cover on the female flower bracts Resin glands beneath cystolith hairs on a leaf petiole}


Here are the potencies, in descending order, of the various plant parts:

1. Female flowering clusters. In practice you don't separate hundreds of tiny bracts to make a joint. The whole flowering mass (seeds removed), along with small accompanying leaves, forms the material.

2. Male flower clusters. These vary more in relative potency depending on the strain (see "Potency by Sex," below).

3. Growing shoots. Before the plants flower, the vegetative shoots (tips) of the main stem and branches are the most potent plant parts.

4. Leaves (a) that accompany flowers (small);

(B) along branches (medium);

© along main stem (large).

Generally, the smaller the leaf is, the more potent it can be.

5. Petioles (leaf stalks). Same order as leaves.

6. Stems. Same order as leaves. The smaller the stem (twig), the higher the possible concentration of cannabinoids. Stems over 1/16" in diameter contain only traces of cannabinoids and are not worth smoking. The small stems that bear the flowers can be quite potent.

7. Seeds and Roots. Contain only traces (less then .01 percent) and are not worth smoking or extracting.


This order is fairly consistent. The exceptions can be the small leaves that accompany male flowers, which are sometimes more potent than the flowers themselves. The growing shoots are sometimes more potent than the mature female flowers.

I saw a tutorial online about a cannabis blunt made out of only the plant itself(after it is mature of course). There is no THC in the vegatative stage, only after flowering,drying,and curing,will the THC be active

Tiny, tiny, tiny trace amounts. You wouldn't extract any useful amount from them.
