My weed stem adventure!
- Sep 5, 2009
Hey so I have been doing a lot of research lately about how my Mary Jane stems can be put to use. I could have cooked them into some butter, which would obviously work, but that would take a while and require some baking, so I decided to make tea out of the stems. THC has extremely low solubility in water, but much better solubility in fat, so I went with whole milk (fattening!) instead of water. So after making 2 glasses of this I can say it works well enough to talk about. I am feelin pretty good and I’m on my second glass I smoke every day by the way and I feel about as high as I do when I smoke a joint or take a few hits from my pipe. Nothing major, but I still feel good.
– 2-3 cups WHOLE milk (depending on how much you want – I made 2 glasses with the listed amount)
– 1 pot
– 1 stove
– enough weed stems to fill a tea bag. add some shake/kief for extra effect (weed bits that have been detached from the nug). More stems/weed = stronger tea! There is no limit
– honey/chocolate syrup for taste (the tea doesnt taste amazing, but it is easily drinkable, some honey or chocolate syrup for the milk will make it much tastier)
– tea bag(s)
– Remove tea leaves from a tea bag and replace with weed stems/shake. Reclose the bag.
– Pour milk into the pot – heat it on the stove.
– Once the milk begins to heat, put the stem-filled teabag in the pot of milk.
– Continue heating the milk until it BEGINS to simmer. Make sure not to let the milk boil vigorously or it will curdle and become undrinkable. Once the milk is hot enough to simmer, turn down stove heat to LOW, and stir periodically for about 15 minutes.
– After 15 minutes, remove the stem bag from the milk and dispose of them. The stems souldn’t have much use anymore.
– Pour whats left of the milk through strainer to remove anything that you might not want to drink, such as little weed bits that may have escaped the bag.
– Add honey or chocolate syrup if you want. I personally put in a couple of tablespoons of honey in each glass. I want to try chocolate syrup next time though.
If anyone has any questions I’ll definitely answer them. This is the personal method I used this time, and it does work. But I am going to do more research and collect more info on what works best. So if anyone has any suggestions I’d be more than happy to hear them.

How To Make Marijuana Hot Chocolate
Cannabis Hot Chocolate Recipe
With winter approaching, the season is beginning to call for those warm drinks rather than frozen. Put away the pina colada mix and break out the hot chocolate! Except this year, you can have some medicated hot chocolate. This brew is sure to get you through any blizzard that Mother Nature is going to throw our way. If you’re not somewhere that the snow covers for six months out of the year, you can still enjoy this recipe on those colder nights!
1 Cup of Milk
1 tspn of butter (You can use regular butter or cannabis butter for this)
1 Cup of Water
Hot Chocolate Mix
1-2g of Marijuana
Grind up the marijuana in a grinder to the finest point that it can get and add it to the water, along with the butter and milk. As always, the butter is a very important step. THC isn’t water soluble and you won’t get as stoned if you don’t add the butter. Keep the water at a minimal boil. While you want the hot chocolate to be hot, boiling the water isn’t good for the THC extraction.
Let the mixture heat up for about 10-15 minutes. After you start to smell the almost almond like smell coming from the water/butter/weed mix, get your mug and add the hot chocolate mix to it. Take the coffee filter and place it over the top of the mug. Pour the hot liquid in to the mug to strain out all of the marijuana buds. Stir the chocolate up and enjoy! You can also add some whipped cream and cinnamon if you want. This chocolate drink will keep you elevated for a night so plan on staying in!
