Weed stems can be a gray area for the average cannabis smoker.
For example, our cannabis-infused tea recipe only requires 2 teaspoons of weed stems and is ready to drink in about ten minutes. This recipe is flexible and allows you to customize with different tea flavors until you find your ideal combination.
What are weed stems?
Did you know you can use discarded weed stems to help make a cannabis-infused butter? If you have a good amount of stems saved up, toss them in with the rest of your flower when you start the decarboxylation process. These stems won’t bring any potency to your final product, but they will add some cannabis-inspired umami. Butter containing cannabis is a good thing to have on hand because it is the foundation of most edible recipes.
Much like the infused butter recipe, you can decarboxylate any leftover weed stems with 7-10 grams of dried cannabis. After this process has been completed, you can infuse the cannabis and stems with coconut oil. This creates the base for many cannabis topical recipes, like lip balms and lotions.
Although you may be tempted to, you should not smoke weed stems. Smoking stems from cannabis plants will not get you high due to their lack of THC. If you do decide to smoke stems, you’ll likely experience a few of the negative side effects that come with smoking, like coughing and sore throat, without the fun of a THC high.
Marijuana seeds have little to no THC and CBD content which are the chemical compounds in marijuana flowers and buds that are responsible for having a mind-altering effect on you and getting you buzzed. Additionally, cannabis seeds create sharp crackling and popping sounds when they are smoked, which contributes to an incredibly uncomfortable smoking session. Plus, smoking cannabis seeds and stems will be harsh on your lungs and irritate the body’s airways, even if you are a chronic smoker.
Despite being void in THC and CBD content, cannabis seeds are rich in amino acids, potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium, and vitamin A.
What to do with cannabis seeds?
The most effective use of cannabis seeds is to grow a pot plant. Even if you are not an expert cannabis cultivator, growing weed does not require you to know rocket science.
Does this scenario sound familiar to you?
You can add them to meals such as salads, pasta, dressings, and oatmeal for a nutty and nutritional crunch!
A lot of people assume that if you find a few seeds in your cannabis, perhaps you can smoke
those too and get the same effect as you do from the flower of the plant. Sorry folks. You
definitely don’t want to smoke marijuana seeds–even top quality marijuana seeds. All you’ll get
is a sore throat and a lot of holes from all of the crackling and burning.
The potency of marijuana seeds is still significantly lower than even top quality marijuana buds and about 600x less than brick weed. For someone with a low tolerance, this could work, however. Naturally for a regular smoker, there’s no effect. Although even the low tolerance smoker would have to smoke a large amount of marijuana seeds to get high. This would be not only time consuming, but an unpleasant experience.
The next part of this whole equation is how do you know you’re buying high grade marijuana
seeds. Well that all depends on who you’re purchasing your cannabis seeds from. Do your
research. Learn about some of the best marijuana seeds online that are available to you then
seek out the best marijuana seed banks. From there, you’ll have no problem locating and
getting top quality cannabis seeds and ultimately growing weed that will get you medicated.
There are a lot of questions around marijuana seeds–especially from beginners and hobby
growers. But one that continues to come up is ‘can marijuana seeds get you high.’ Well, yes and
Marijuana seeds do contain THC, however and have THC on their surface from the trichomes
coating the rest of the bud–it’s just a lesser amount of THC than the rest of the bud. Keep in
mind though that the amount of THC in or on a cannabis seed depends on the strain.
High quality buds can have an average of 10% THC.
