    I will have a pile of stems and leaves soon. When my partner harvests, he has said I can have everything except the buds. Is there anything I can do with the leaes and stems? Do they contain THC? I hope I can get SOMETHING from them!

    Peace

    hash... of course

    With harvest time approaching there is always options what to do with the trim and waste ... A few ideas are ISO or the gumby method of hash making
    (gumby method ) both of these options don't require a large investment unlike bubble bags and butane extraction.. hope that helps ya out ;pass

    Sweet! Thats a great little video! I think I will make some hash next time!

    This time I made canna butter. Then Rice Krispies Treats with the butter. They turned out pretty tasty!

    The stems and leaves do contain some thc u may just want to make a tea ot depending on how much leaf and stem u got you could try making a small batch of butter ... both will work out rather nicely ;pass

    If you decide to make the tea you need to remember to heat the water with milk, because THC is not water soluble.

    In order to do the process in the video must the leaves and steams be dried or does pretty much any condition work?

    You can make brownies if you have a decent amount of leaves.

    Flavoured bhang drink
    Ingredients

    2 cups water
    1 ounce marijuana (fresh leaves and flowers of a female plant preferred)
    4 cups warm milk
    2 tablespoons blanched and chopped almonds
    1/8 teaspoon garam masala (a mixture of cloves, cinnamon, and cardamon)
    1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger
    1/2 to 1 teaspoon rosewater
    1 cup sugar

    Method
    Bring the water to a rapid boil and pour into a clean teapot. Remove any seeds or twigs from the marijuana, add it to the teapot and cover. Let this brew for about 7 minutes.
    Now strain the water and marijuana through a piece of muslin cloth, collect the water and save.

    I usually roll in the leaves with the bud. I just pitch the stems.

    I just pitch the stems, the leaves have enough resin on them to make it worthwhile to produce honey oil. There is a couple commercially produced honey oil extractors available at local head shops or online. I use butane with mine. It took 24 cans of butane at $6.00 each ($144.00) to extract about 40 grams of pure honey oil from about 400 grams of leaf/bud shake...the buds were full of seeds screened out before extraction.

    The whole job was outside with zero electric items running and no possible source of ignition, this butane is like a bomb with a hair trigger BE VERY CAREFUL.

    All my pot was very dry and crushed/screened to a very fine hief before loading the extractor. Just follow the directions...by the way the extractor I picked up is called "Honey bee extractor" a nice little addition that makes good use of marginal materials.
