Me and a bud want to make stem-tea. Clearly there are many experienced people with a lot of knowledge so that would be very helpful for two 18 year old stoners!

ALL responses would be helpful thanks...

I've never heard of it being made from stems. You can make if from leaves and bud.....

The absolute simplest recipe I can think of is. Gets some bud, boil some water, then pour the water over the bud (don't boil it in), then let it seep for awhile. If you want a good potency people suggest using Vodka or butter. I havn't tried it with either so I can say if it makes it better or not.

I just like a good flavored tea....

THC is oil and alcohol soluable, meaning if there isn't alcohol and/or oil present, you won't get high.
You could eat a 1/2 oz. of the finest ganja--you won't get high.
Unless you ingest it with alcohol or oil, and I don't mean washing a bud down with a shot of whiskey. Using alcohol you must steep the bud, with oil you must heat it.

Stems have very low THC content.
Stem tea (boiling stems in water) WILL NOT get you high. I've heard making a tea from the leaves has healing properties though.

I agree. This is pointless, as you'd need WAY more stems than you could fit in the pot. Leaves or Bud will work, as a medicinal recipe.

There are many other cannabinoids in the plant, some of which *are* water-soluble, and they may have a minor hypnotic/sedative effect on you, resulting in a change of headspace. If you're a pothead, though, you probably won't notice it at all.

CBD, CBC, and CBG are three of the primary cannabinoids aside from THC. They have tons of positive/healing effects, and I believe CBG and CBD have antibacterial/antiviral effects. In addition, they help to relieve intraocular pressure, and have antiepileptic and antidystonic effects. They have mild sedative/hypnotic effects, but as I said, probably wouldn't be noticeable to someone who uses very frequently.

Since THC is fat soluble you could mix a couple of grams of cannabis with a small amount of butter and high-fat milk (whole milk?) in a small pan, and then put that milk/butter mixture into your tea. Alternatively, you could just use high-fat cream, but I personally CAN'T STAND CREAM in my tea.

I think the best course of action is to make yourself a nice mint or chamomile tea, and have it with toast. And by toast, I mean toast with butter. And by butter, I mean the aforementioned butter that has been prepared with a few grams of wonder-weed.

Read the directions in the "What's Cooking" part of the forum. If you put alcohol on heat, you might be in the burn clinic for a few years or dead. Go to the nearest hospital and stand in the hallway of the burn ward for a few hours. YOU NEVER WANT TO BE IN ONE OF THOSE ROOMS. LOTS OF PAIN INDUCED SCREAMING IS DONE IN THEM.

Think before using flammable liquids near or on ANY kind of heat.

The directions for making oil are clear and precise as listed in one of Bro Grunts posts in that area. He even supplied pics.

The alcohol is evaporated off at ambient temperatures AND AWAY FROM ANY SOURCE OF HEAT OR FLAME before consuming the oil unless your making a drinkable mix. Then, you use a DRINKABLE TYPE OF ALCOHOL. Like vodka. You STILL DON'T HEAT IT. Drink some ISO and you'll be dead as well.

Please, everyone slow the hell down and read the instructions before someone kills themselves.

Also, of the student population in schools that have "Summer School Classes, there are only a very small percentage of people who are above the age of 18 who would be attending "summer school, which is an age requirement on this group. Anyone who refers to belonging to something that is mostly made up of under age people on this group isn't doing something smart.

I'll take it that you ARE over 18 as you said you were when you signed up to this group. If you aren't, you have to leave.

Chill out StoneyBud...I'm 21. College has summer-school too. This forum is totally awesome, and I get on it everyday, but sometimes people can be a little uptight. I don't want to get on your bad side stoneybud (because you're a moderator). Why is it ok for someone else on here to make a joke saying "i killed my kids when they turned 16 so i wouldn't have to pay car insurance" but its not ok for me to joke and say i want to drink herb-tea in my summer school class. I'm not really going to, and I really don't think anyone else gave a **** except you. I'm sure that Leo is going to track me down for saying it would be funny if i drank tea in my summer school class, while, at the same time there are people growing shitloads of marijuana in their homes. And, they are discussing it freely on this forum. First of all, that is my own business if I do that, secondly it was like 50% a joke because I'll never waste the bud or time to make it but I was curious on how one actually goes about making it. Smoke some herb and chill.

Smoke some herb and chill.Hey man, you mentioned boiling alcohol. That can kill someone. I don't want you or anyone else getting killed trying to get high. That's why I got upset. Some people on the group might actually think it was something to do. I just wanted to make sure the danger was understood. Getting burned scares the hell outta me. If that offends you, I'm sorry.

As for your drinking anything you want to drink in your school classes, I don't care what you do man. I sure didn't mean to give you the impression that I did. You can drink a gallon of everclear every day in class. I couldn't care less. Again, sorry if you thought I was knocking you for doing so. It's none of my business what you do, you're right.

As for the summer school thing, I've grown very paranoid about kids being on this group. I never want to be the reason some kid hurts themselves or gets put in jail. I really didn't think of the summer college classes. Again, I'm sorry.

I don't want you getting pissed off at me either. I'm here to have a good time as you are. All of the Mod's on this group were first just fellow stoners who wandered in here to have fun with others just like em. All of us Mod's love this group man. That's why we try to help keep it cool for everyone. It wasn't the paycheck that doesn't come with it.

If you go to most other groups like this, you'll see the place is rampant with real youngins raisin hell, cussing like crazy with foul stuff no matter who might be reading it. Flame wars daily. All kinds of wierd stuff.

Not here. It's a polite place. Nobody gets picked on by anyone here. No flame wars. No bad mouthing.

Just a good time had by all! We all like getting high and having fun.

Please understand that if some kid WAS on this group and saw someone say you can boil alcohol to make hash oil with, they might try it without thinking about getting burned or killed when the **** blew up in their face.

That was the image in my mind when I read your post.

No insult intended man. I don't want to get on your bad side, (because you seem to be an ok person).

I hope you understand the position I'm in. As a Moderator on this group, I have to try to make sure everything is as it should be.

The burning thing really does scare the **** outta me man. I've been to a burn ward once. Never again. It gave me nightmares for years. That's why I freaked when I saw the words ALCOHOL and BOILING in the same sentence. I was picturing a big fireball in someones kitchen.

Yes, I flinched when I read the "I killed my kids" thing, but it was so obviously a joke, I didn't think anyone would take insult to it. By your reaction, I'd say I was wrong. If you were insulted by it enough to refer to it here, then others may also have been insulted by it. I'll remember that if it's ever repeated. Thanks for pointing that out to me.

If I was right ALL the time, it would get boring man. ha!

You be cool too and I'll see you around the forum.

I had to diffuse some tention there as well...Whats even more funny man is that you pretty much hit the nail right on the head...I am not a diplomat or anything but my job does entail alot of mediating in a non-bias way...Hey man I am like you, I love this forum and I am just trying to make it better and add some light to an otherwise dark world...You too are a beacon of light man, keep it up...Peace Out and Bless

I decided to give this a try. I boiled the water and added it to my 10% cream and shake mixture then I let it steep for 10 minutes. This was leaf though not stem, and the leaf was real crystally. I drank the tea and the buzz took about 30 mins or so to kick in, then it was a nice mellow buz that lasted me the rest of the day it seemed. Give it a try.

could you just boil whole milk with the buds/leaves and make hot coco or something?

Stoney Bud
07-15-2006, 02:17 PM
could you just boil whole milk with the buds/leaves and make hot coco or something?You guys need to keep something in mind. Any temperature above 100 degrees causes THC to degrade. The more it boils, the less active THC you'll have.

If you boil it long enough, you'll have a nice cup of hot chocolate, but it won't get a mouse high.

EEEEEasy with all that heat on THC.

The reason the alcohol thing works so well is no heat should be used. Natural evaporation is what you want to have all the THC stay.

Good luck to you!

Hey, I LOVE to drink weed tea. Back in high school I did it on more than one occasion (not that I'm proud of it, and I'm not suggesting that anyone goes out and drinks thc-laden beverages in public) and it was a great way to get high without the worry of smoking. Here is the recipe I used. it is VERY effective if done right.

First off, you'll need to get this:
1 - 3 grams of nice fresh bud (1 for a decent buzz, 3 if you want to get blitzed into uselessness)
1/2 - 2 tablespoons of BUTTER (NOT MARGERINE)
2 - 3 cups of water
1 teabag or coffee filter
1 cup of whole milk (2% will do, but if you only have skim you might as well forget the tea and just make butter))

So you start off by boiling the water. While that's going on, empty your tea bag (or get your coffee filter) and fill it up with the nice, finely crushed bud. Close it up either with staples or a paperclip, and set it aside.

Once the water starts to boil, you wanna add in your butter. It's important to use butter and not margerine because, as someone said early, THC is not water soulable. So fat is the name of the game! (sidenote: A friend of mine didn't have butter so he used crisco instead... Don't be like my friend.) For one gram use 1/2 tablespoon of butter, for three grams use 2 tablespoons. Now lower the heat so the water is bairly simmering (a bit past medium on my flattop stove) and add your special teabag.

Cover it and let it simmer for about an hour. Keep a constant check on it, adding A LITTLE BIT of extra water ONLY IF NEEDED. You only want enough water to cover the teabag, because the water isn't what you're going to be drinking. Your goal is to get the water as dark brown as possible.

After the hour has past, add in the 1 cup of milk. Whole milk is best because of the fat, but 2 percent won't be a noticable difference. Once the milk is in you can add cinnamon, sugar and allspice (or any other flavorings) to taste. Then bring it back up to a boil for 15 minutes.

**Optional: Add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and boil for 30 more seconds while constantly stirring.

Pour your fantastic concoction into a cup and DRINK UP! I like to sprinkle a little nutmeg ontop of mine. It kinda tastes like chai tea if prepared the way I have described.

A little bit of extra info:
-Coffee filters are sometime better than teabag. Some teabags tend to have large mesh (although to the naked eye it looks just as small as anything else). This is fine because it lets all the THC out quite easily, but you have to remember that THC isn't all that's in the bud/leaf. Chlorophyl is the enemy of the pot tea brewer. If your weed isn't properly contained, the chlorophyl will dissolve into the water and tint your whole brew green. Not to mention it's a tad bitter. I have NEVER had this problem with a coffee filter.
-1 gram should be plenty for one person. If you're preparing this with 3 grams or more I would suggest you not drink the whole thing to yourself. Split it with a friend! Even just two mouthfulls will get you high as a kite.
-Everyone I know who has ingested weed always tell me how tired they feel after the high wears off. I've experienced this every time i've had this tea. It is a tremendous fatigue. You don't want to do ANYTHING! Sleep is a must!
-Give the tea some time. Depending on your metabolism it'll take between 15 and 50 minutes for you to feel anything. It's best to drink and forget. The effects will last anywhere from 4-10 hours, the first two or three being extremely intense, and the last few being extremely relaxing. I average at about 7.
-Just because you're drinking it doesn't mean you won't get red eyes! REMEMBER THAT! You will look like you just blazed a whole dutch to yourself. So if you're someone who gets red eye real bad (like I do) then make sure you stay safe.
-Obviously, don't drive! Eating weed gives you an incredible body high, especially if you eat enough. I usually get a tingling/numbing in my legs and I can hardly feel my hands. Not to mention focused concentration is impossible.

so i dunno if people just got side tracked but ive got a giant bag of STEMS, no bud, and was just wondering if there is a good safe, non life threatening, no fuss way to get slightly buzzed. i heard some years back that it was possible and have been collecting for a while. anyone know?

thc is good for me
04-01-2008, 09:05 AM
Stems dont have very many trichs but i had a a half 10 grams of stems and keifed them with a keif box. I got a few good hits but nothing worth all the work.

I dont know about stem tea i guess if you did it the same way but use stems not weed and see what happends. whats the worst that can happen you wont get high.

You might get a buzz try it and report back.

i know someone who only ingest bud and does not smoke. he thinks its better for his pains. he eats a gram or so a day he will start the morning with tea or just hot water he throws the bud into the hot liquid lets it sit for like 5 minutes then eats the bud and drinks the liquid and he says he gets real high almost all day long:confused:

MJ IS NOT WATER SOLUBLE ITS FAT AND ALCOHOL SOLUBLEIt isn't a matter of taking it into solution. It's a matter of extracting it from the stems. Heat from the water will do that. Then you press the stems to push as much as possible into the water and drink it.

I'm guessing you've never tried it.

It works great. I've done it a bunch.

Thanks for helping dispel the nonsense.
so if i took a nice fat bud, say bout gram size and said bottoms up to it i'd catch a similar buzz as to when i'd say make a butter type concoction or an alcohol tictature type method?
i was always steered toward the concept that you had to break down the thc and that is wat alcohol/solvents ie oils in the butter(fat) do. they break it down to a point where the body can ingest it and utilize the THC chemicals in thc when normally thc is not able to be broken down in the human stomach to the point of getting high from it really as much. ...as you can when the thc is broken down prior to ingestin it wether it be the butter or alcohol/solvent route...
but this is just wat i was told and have read as well. im no scientist to be able to call anyone a liar on this but if any documenntated information tellin other wise i'd love to se it. cuz i have had frenz pop buds in an swallow like pills before and they all have said they got hi too. but with wat i have read before i was not willing to believe it and risk wastin any amount of smoke in case it was not true.
i'm undetermined in wat to believe is wat im sayin

On topic, I just scraped several grams out of my bong and I'm going to try this recipe tomorrow. I'm tempted to make it now because I'm out of bud but I think this should be saved until tomorrow so I'll have company. Too bad, guess I'm staying sober tonight. Going to be a tough sleep.:cry:

I made a lovely tincture with 150 proof alcohol and allowed it to evaporate by 1/2 and now have bottled it in bach flower bottles, (2 oz). I find now that crystals are forming. This is a science project and the stuff tastes awful. I guess this is called the "green dragon" but I hate all the alcohol.

Point is: Evaporation is the best method when using alcohol.

Me and a bud want to make stem-tea. Clearly there are many experienced people with a lot of knowledge so that would be very helpful for two 18 year old stoners!

ALL responses would be helpful thanks...

if you have enough weed, it only takes enough weed to roll a joint to make enough tea for two people, we also save our stems and grind them almost to dust and add those to the pot. hubby and i don't make tea we make hot pot chocolate. most people say that you have to add butter to the watter when you make tea and that just sounds freaking disgusting, so we figured chocolate. we simmer 2 mugs of milk just to the temp before the milk gets a skin on it, pour in your finely ground marijuana and simmer for 30 minutes. strain the green material out of your milk, add your chocolate and enjoy. you must keep a lid on the pan becuz the THC will escape with the steam (I read this in a book.)

The rel question is, WHY BOTHER? THC is NOT water soluble---so all the stems in all the water of the world wont get you high, plus, trust me, it tastes like monkey piss.

You need some kind of FAT---butter, veg. oil, whatever, not water. Now, THC will disolve in alcohol. Make a nice tincture with Everclear.
