Here's a common question among new and experienced cannabis consumers alike: Do cannabis stems have THC in them? The answer is yes, but that's not necessarily a reason to go ahead and grind them up and smoke them. While there is THC in the cannabis stem it is not as much as the bud and when stems are smoked they're often combined with an unsavory taste and sometimes even a headache. Here are a few creative ways to use your stems without having to smoke them!
One popular method of using cannabis stems is to brew them into a tea. With just 1/4 to 1/2 cup of stems, depending on desired potency, water, and either a 2-3 teaspoons of alcohol or milk, you can enjoy a nice cup of tea to get you and your friends a buzz.
Another popular method of using stems is to infuse them with your favorite clear alcohol by letting 1/4 or 1/2 cup of stems soak in the alcohol in a dark room for a few days, shaking occasionally.
Baking your buds into cannabutter to be used in other recipes is a very popular method of consumption and it turns out the same can be done with stems! Adjust your butter recipe for the stems' less potent qualities and you'll have no problem making your very own cannabutter.
