You can make hash or butter out of them. But I'v never let one mature. So I have never done it myself.

You know there's a forum here that deals with making hash; check it out.
Using male plants results in low-quality hash, and not much of it.
But waaay better than nothing.
You can also cure the leaves and smoke them, though some people say it gives them a headache (it's never given me or anyone I know a headache though).
You can extract the THC via butter or alcohol and use the butter for cooking or the booze for drinking.
Try this reciepe:
Ingredients:
marijuana leaves
tequilla
margarita mix.
Use a half-empty bottle of tequilla. Crumble a lot of dried leaves into the bottle, as much as you can.
Keep the bottle in a warm dark place and shake it up daily for a week.
Then strain the mixture through like a t-shirt or coffee filter into another container.
Then use as you would regularly use tequilla to make Margarita's.
Of course you can use any kind of high-alcohol booze and you can drink it straight if you wish.

Since your from Ireland (they may not have tequilla there), make it with whiskey.

Or simmer the crumbled-up leaves in butter or cream for 45 minutes, strain through a t-shirt into another container, use the cream or butter to cook with or simply spread it on a cracker or toast or add it to your coffee.

You want to harvest a male plant as soon as the balls (pollen sacs) appear.

How about the leaves that fall off of females during flowering? I've tried a little and mixed it with the male dried leaves and it seemed to produce a decent buzz. Anybody else out there try this before?

I like to give them to my friends bird (parot). This bird seems to really enjoy chewing on them. The only bad thing is that you can't leave you bud laying around (the bird will eat it). This damn bird eat joints, roaches and anything that containt bud in anyway :eek: .

i have 2 plants growing now one from swag and one from some very good exspensive kind bud which the grower must have missed a male plant in with the females but i didnt mind cos it was still great stuff and i got some seeds out of it, the sad thing is im still only learning and i just got one to grow its 3 weeks old and 5 ins high the swag is about 10 weeks old and 18 ins high. the thing is i moved last week and i had to put the them in a make shift wardrobe i also transplanted the kind bud into a large pot with fertilized potting soil. im really worried now cos both of them have stopped growing, drooping and gone a bit yellow the swags bottom small leaves turned completly yellow so i cut them of and some of the bigger top ones have a yellow line down the middle, im even more worried about the kind bud it hasnt grown since i transplanted it the leaves are turning yellow and there drooping

hi Rastagal great to see the irish growing our own fingers crossed we get it right and totaly enjoy the fruits. thanks hick hope these pictures help. the soil i transplanted it in is a ph ballanced fertilized potting soil i can remember the name or the brand and the soil i started it in is a starting soil for seeds and cuttings. after transplanting it into the potting soil i put some miracle grow tomato 18/20/18 i dont thing i should have done that. i think they have fertilizer burn and maybe over watered. ive flushed them a couple of times and cut of dead looking leaves. i use a hps 400watt unit which is about 30ins from the swag and 38ins from the kind. i use a portable air conditioner set at 75f and a oscillating fan. ive been putting them into the boiler room for the last two days for about an hour so they can get some co2. hope this is of use. heres some pictures.

I think you may be right. MG is powerfull stuff, and you say the soil was already "pre-fert'ed". I recommend useing it at no more than 1/2 recommended strength. Also, MG lacks in micro-nutrients essential to mj. The most important being magnesium.
Nutrients for vegging should also contain higher (N) nitrogen content, than (P) potasium and (K) potash. The formula that you used is a flowering fomula, high in P.
