Hey,

A co-worker of mine is absolutely convinced that everyone should save the stems and smoke them for when they're dry. Apparently they get you fucked up and are way better than resin. :rolleyes: He claims when you smoke them that only the THC gets evaporated into the pipe and into your lungs so its "100% THC". Silliest thing I've ever heard if ya ask me, I argued w/ him over this for a good 25 minutes, then I just gave up on him. I've always had the impression that there's like 0.02% THC in stems, much like hemp. Perhaps it is much higher? I don't know, but I'm not about to go smoke stems, fuck that. Peace.

Depending on the strain breed grower experience/skill an all that you can get some pretty thc laden stems.

Aside from that the most you'll get is maybe half a vapor bag full with a huge bowl packed full of stems all straight up an down. It'll taste pretty bland but it gets you high.

As for it being 100%...no it's smoke just like any other. You're actually smoking what would be the plants veins thus its the white sponge like stuff that filters nutes into its system covered by a greener harder shell and a fine layer of thc near the bud sites.

It's really just the female plants seed pod protection system over extending itself to branches. THC is a great UV blocker (thc sunblock anyone?) its water proof and it really doesn't allow for any bald spots on the seed pods no matter what nature does to it.

So you're getting stoned off a weeds reproductive byproduct.. lol

shit, i just did it, but i dont think it's totally the stems themselfs that get you high... i think it's from the tiny bits of bud all over the ends. ya'll know what i'm talkin about... that shit that stays in the corners where another stem is comin out?

i'm sure the stems don't have much THC at all alone, but with the residue and buddage stuck on it, it makes it totally worth the smoke in times of need.........

heh no clue but I didn't burn after getting it all over the place handling water cured stuff.

It was in all the typical spots on the fingers an I tried to make finger hash by holding the tips of my fingers over a 380 degree heatgun..got all melty a sweaty an I rubbed 'em all together.

I got so many compliments on the softness an nice smell all day..! Everyone loves the smell of fresh green... :D

Sometimes i'll chop up the stems and use the powder to clean out my bowl. It works really well when the resin is wet.

Yep, when I've only got a joint left I call up my dealer, chop up my stems, and mix some phat bowls till I can pickup again. Hell, even scrape up some resin to throw in there and you'll get mega ripped. As that 70's guy said, weed is like the pig of the plant world, you can use everything.

I just made some canabutter out of a half pint jar full of stems (extremely full) and it worked great.... I had a vice to get all the butter of the stems, but you can get one of those cheap and it works pretty well compared to smoking stems, and it only took two small brownies to get me pretty high

just be sure to put like a cup extra water in when your boiling the butter down, because I think it takes longer the THC to get out of the stems, and I had to readd water twice

^ Theres no THC in the stem not even many resins or cbn oils...

What the stems are made up of are as I said before the sponge like material that moves the plants food around the outer husk or 'bark' if you'd call it that is just tough fiber that is fulla something similar to bug repellant in nature. It dissuades all sorts of bugs from nibbling at the leaves/branches growing seeds/ect

Above that you end up with that fine dusting of thc sometimes extending way past the bud itself which is what you want.

Boiling it harder or longer is probably just netting you a bit more tart to the finishing product not actives
