best way to dry weed fast

How To Dry Cannabis Quickly

You want the truth about quick drying cannabis? We think you can handle it. So in this blog, we’ve compiled the best methods to get you a fast stash post-harvest. We can’t promise perfection but these methods will put a rush on the drying process and give you a decent bud to toke on.

OK, so you have cannabis plants close to harvest and insufficient marijuana reserves to see you through the typical 30+ day period between harvest and cured finished product. Perhaps you don’t even have a stash to make it through the average 1–2 weeks it takes to dry buds conventionally? Or perhaps you are just curious whether or not your flowers are ready to harvest? Regardless of your personal motivations, you have plenty of options when it comes to quickly drying cannabis. The problem is, the most popularised quick-dry methods will degrade buds so much in the process, they are hardly worth the effort.

Our readers deserve better. Not only will we break down simple ways to speed-dry Sinsemilla without ruining your reefer. We have also included a sticky surprise in the text for those cannabis concentrate lovers seeking more flavoursome extracts using the fresh non-dried material.

BROWN BAGS AND COMPUTER FANS

Simple brown paper bags, like the kind you get from the bakery, are perfect for drying buds. Especially popcorn buds. If you place a handful or two of freshly manicured smaller nuggets into a paper bag and leave them to dry for 2–3 days your halfway there. Ideally, you should leave them another 3 days to dry completely. But if you’re in a hurry, proceed to the next step.

Next, turn on your laptop and figure out where the fan is. Modern laptops all have fans expelling warm air to keep the internal workings of the device cool. Place the small half-dry nuggets on a paper towel on the keyboard. Or on a paper towel directly in front of the fan vents, if you have a model that vents a different way. Turn buds over every 10 minutes or so, until they feel dry to the touch. This may take an hour or longer, but the buds will still pack a punch. Don’t expect a full bouquet of aromas or mouth-watering flavour, rather an acceptable if a little harsh tasting smoke.

CONVERT THE BOILER ROOM INTO A DRYING BOX

Most private homes have a boiler room. The water boiler inside keeps the boiler room temperature pretty cosy and relative humidity is minimal. This is a great place to quick-dry cannabis. It’s best to place all small buds in brown bags, but you can use string to hang bigger buds as you usually would when drying. The big difference is that you are going to turn up the heat by switching on the hot water heater. You can completely dry huge harvests in 3 days if you leave the hot water on for most of that time. That’s sure to spike the utility bills. With normal use, expect the small buds to be dry enough to smoke in just 3–4 days, with thicker hanging colas requiring 6–7 days. This method has a lower impact on quality than most, but the buds still won’t taste fantastic.

ALTERNATIVE: GO LIVE

The dabbing trend of 2018 is live resin concentrates. Even the most potent extracts like wax and shatter have some room for improvement. Using fresh frozen flowers rather than carefully dried and cured buds is the breakthrough US extract artists have made to produce gourmet concentrates with far more terpenes. Something is definitely lost in transition with the standard BHO extraction methods. Live resin boasts the same skyhigh potency with a vastly improved flavour profile. Unfortunately, this is probably out of reach to the average ordinary home grower. The cannabis must be kept at subcritical temperatures for the entire extraction process and you really need lab conditions and equipment to accomplish this. Nonetheless it’s a top-shelf treat coming to all good cannabis clubs, coffee shops, and dispensaries in 2018. Be on the lookout for names like “sauce”, “sap”, and “syrup” popping up on the menu.

SUN-DRIED WEED

Outdoor ganja farmers have dried marijuana placed on rocks in direct sunlight for thousands of years. It’s certainly not the most efficient method to dry cannabis, but it works. Both heat and sunlight will degrade quality. However, if you want to dry small buds fast and it’s hot and sunny outside, you could do worse than tossing a handful of popcorn buds in a brown bag and sun-drying them. Best use a rock to weigh down the bag of buds in direct sunlight, you don’t want a gust of wind swiping your weed. Then you play the waiting game. After a day or two of warm dry sunny weather, you should have some crispy buds to toke on. Again flavour and potency will have deteriorated, so you are not getting the most from your marijuana with this method.

DESPERATE MEASURES

Baking buds in the oven is a horrible idea. Just don’t do it. It really is a waste of weed. Oven temperatures are far, far, far too hot for cannabis. Even on a low setting—still too hot. Sure the buds will dry out in minutes, but you’ll also have cooked off most of the cannabinoids. These buds will taste like burnt plant material and won’t get you high.

Microwave marijuana is another guaranteed disappointment. Nuking buds with 10-second blasts in the microwave is a disastrous way to dry weed. These methods likely origins are “the big book of bad ideas” and are to be avoided.

We all know that you really ought to slowly dry and cure marijuana. Sometimes you need to test for potency or just need a stash. Let’s talk quick drying weed.

Quick Drying

Quickly Dry your Marijuana Buds

Fast & quick ways to dry your cannabis buds

I’d like to share a few different ways to quick-dry your marijuana and cannabis buds for fast sampling.

Please remember though, that properly dried and cured marijuana only gets better with time. It smokes smoother without harshness or the green taste. However, these tips to drying your weed quickly work very well.

You do retain THC levels, they may get crispy (the buds silly), but these function just fine. These processes will help you dry your pot quickly and be able to enjoy it in minutes or a few hours. And then you should be ‘crispy’ too.

Place your trimmed buds on a cookie sheet spread out evenly. Set your oven to 125-140 degrees Fahrenheit (no hotter!). Leave for 10 minutes, remove for 5 minutes and turn buds. Repeat once more.

Rig a flat piece of 10″ foil to be held under a 100 watt light bulb (no hotter) within 2-4 inches. Turn your buds every 1-2 minutes. Should be smoke-able within about 10-15 minutes time.

Take your buds and flatly wrap them in paper or use a paper envelope and place them over your water heater, radiator, or the back of your TV. Pot should be dry in a few hours or overnight.

Place buds flat on a plate. Use your microwave on 50% power or less (important not to burn). Set for only 10-12 seconds at a time, remove and turn, repeat as necessary. Done quickly, be careful.

I’ve heard you can use a food dehydrator, it takes a little longer (hours) but should work as well if you have one one of these.

Also, if your buds get too dry (crispy), you can put them in a ziploc bag or glass sealable jar with a piece of orange peel. yep, it will smoke much nicer by morning.

NEVER have your heat source be more than 150 degrees Fahrenheit! Any hotter will actually burn or vaporize the THC or resin glands. this IS what gets you high, so be careful of this.

These tips should help you enjoy a little of your smoke a little faster. However – I still recommend proper drying and curing – You WILL notice the difference.

You can quickly dry and cure your marijuana buds. It can be fast, but remember your cannabis actually gets better when dried and cured properly. Quick dry your pot or weed. Fast ways to dry cannabis.

how to make your weed taste good

How To Grow Weed That Smells Strong And Tastes Superb

Every strain has a unique smell and taste, whether skunky, fruity or anywhere in between. Every grower values huge yields and strong flowers, but nothing quite beats bud, that also smells tempting and tastes delicious.

Contents:

When growing cannabis, some of the key factors cultivators strive towards are massive harvests, that produce buds of high quality. Cannabis consumers also have the potency of buds high up on their priority list, ensuring, that they get the desired cannabinoid quantity and ratio in return for their money. Another large factor that adds character and value to a marijuana harvest is the smell and taste of the product. Many strains have familiar and nostalgic scents and flavors to them, so much so, that the strain is literally named after either the dank smells of cheese, diesel and skunk, or more fruit and vibrant aromas, such as pineapple, blueberry and apple.

One of the first actions somebody commits when they are looking to purchase marijuana, is to shove their nose into the storage bag or jar and take a big lungful of aromatic goodness. Smell and taste are definitely important when it comes to smoking preferences. However, there is so much information out there regarding how to produce colossal harvests and how to ensure your buds are fully frosted with mammoth amounts of cannabinoids. There is no denying the importance of these factors when growing, but taking measures to ensure the optimum outcome in terms of smell and taste for your crop will only add to the overall quality of your harvest.

TERPENES AND TERPENOIDS

The key players in improving the taste and smell of your cannabis are, without a doubt, terpenes and terpenoids. These compounds are formed alongside cannabinoids on small glands of cannabis flowers known as trichomes. Taking direct measures to influence increased production of terpenes and terpenoids will enable you to maximise the scent and taste, that the specific strain you are growing is capable of producing. Each strain will have its own unique smell and taste due to genetic factors. This can be boosted using growing techniques, however it is important to roughly know what smell and taste you are looking to achieve, and then selecting the correct strain in order to attain the desired outcome.

Terpenes and terpenoids are the molecules responsible for the diverse array of scents and flavors spread across many different cannabis strains. They are also found elsewhere in the plant kingdom and are responsible for the familiar smells of lavender, pine, citrus, basil and more. Although they are absolutely key in the domains of scent and taste, it has been found, that they can also influence the type of high a cannabis plant will produce. They have also been found to have vast potential in the field of medicinal cannabis.

In order to increase the amount of terpenes and terpenoid production in cannabis plants, they need to receive precise amounts of external stress. If you have experience growing and can achieve a good, healthy crop free of deficiencies, mould and pest infestation, then attempting stressing methods is definitely something you may want to try. The process is somewhat delicate, with the correct amount of stress needing to be applied over a long period of time, instead of overwhelming the plants and risking fatalities. The best time to start applying these methods are during the middle or end stages of a plant’s flowering stage.

Low stress training, or LST, is a way of exposing your plant to levels of stress that aren’t quite as extreme as pruning or topping. Low stress training involves manipulating a plant to grow more sideways, therefore exposing far more of the plant to the light source, instead of primarily the top section.

NUTRIENTS

The amount of nutrients provided to your plant can alter the outcome of how strong it will smell and how pleasant its taste will be. When looking to enhance the amount of nutrients a plant has access to, it is possible for growers to use supplements. However, cheaper and more natural products can be used to achieve the same goals. Blackstrap molasses is a popular and effective option, primarily used during the last few weeks of the flowering stage before harvest time arrives. Blackstrap molasses works to provide cannabis plants with valuable carbohydrates, amino acids and minerals, that are key in allowing plants to develop maximum taste and smell.

Other nutritional supplements are available, that assist the blooming process by acting as a source of vitamins, amino acids and other vital nutrients, that are needed to strive for optimal aroma and taste of your crop.

Another supplement category exists, that some growers frown upon, especially if they value completely natural growing methods. However, they may be useful for those struggling to achieve the results they are after. This group of supplements actually add smell to your buds, from grapes to citrus and berry. Once the smells are present in the buds, growers will have to flush their plants around three weeks before harvest to expel excess magnesium.

It has been reported, that natural nutrients contribute more effectively to smell than chemical options. These nutrients break down in the soil over time, and include sources such as kelp, bone meal and worm castings.

As well as providing optimal amounts of nutrients to your plants to increase results, methods also exist, that take us back to the subject of stress, by decreasing the amount. Plants will consume large amounts of nutrients during the vegetative phase when lots of energy is being invested in the development of stems and leaves. Plants also require a large amount of nutrients during the early stages of flowering when buds are being established. However, about 6 weeks into flowering a plant’s demands for such large amounts of nutrients decreases as growth begins to slow down. This will give the grower the opportunity to start to restrict nutrients, but also ensure their plant still has enough to produce optimal yields. Doing this will limit the amount of nitrogen, that will deposit in flowers, which may cause them to develop a harsh smell and taste.

LIGHT SELECTION

Being mindful of the type of light, that you provide to your cannabis plants can also alter the outcome of your crop in terms of how nicely it will smell and how soothing or striking it will be on the taste buds. UV lights are believed to possibly enhance trichome production, and because terpenes are made in these small glands, they will likely contribute to the overall smell and taste of the harvest. Specifically, it is UV-B light, that causes this production, possibly because the plant produces excess trichomes in order to shield itself from the rays. Be sure to take safety measures when working with this light source, especially protective lenses.

DRYING AND CURING

Drying and curing correctly will help to maintain the integrity of your buds and contribute to the overall taste and smell. Drying buds at a nice slow pace will allow them to maintain a nice smell, and maintaining medium humidity prevents mould and protects trichomes from damage.

Curing your bud correctly will ensure the best smell and taste possible. Place your correctly dried buds into jars or storage bags. Begin to open the container of choice each day to let a fresh supply of air inside. After a couple of weeks you can check less regularly, repeating the shame procedure. This process should be completed after about 1 month.

Everyone appreciates bud that is strong, but nothing quite beats the added bonuses of weed that smells amazing and tastes incredible.

How to enhance the flavors of cannabis?

“ How to flavor weed” is one question many people ask. And, it’s not only the growers but even users purchasing cannabis have the same question. In this article, you’ll find tips to flavor cannabis but they will help you if you’re a grower yourself. For non-growers, a section at the end of this article may help.

So, is it even possible to flavor marijuana? Yes, it definitely is. It’s fun to do so and the best part is that it’s safe. Well, at least the methods described here are.

Best way to enhance the flavors of cannabis

There are so many different types of flavors you find in cannabis. It’s really mind-boggling. For instance, Green Crack smells like fresh mangoes and also taste like them! And, the magic is due to the terpenes found in the plant.

Thus, you should focus on the flavors much before you buy the seeds. Naturally, by finding strains that are tested to taste like a particular fruit, you’ll be more successful in growing cannabis that tastes amazing. No matter what flavor catches your fancy – chocolate, strawberry, cherry, mango, pineapple, and citrus – you’ll find them all.

Breeders grow these strains with a specific idea – flavors. They pollinate them with other proven and tested strains to create seeds that are magical and taste great at the same time. By now, you’ve probably understood that since it’s the terpenes that make the buds click, you must focus on increasing the terpenes. You can do that while the plant is growing. But in this post, we will talk more about increasing the flavors in different ways.

Stress the plants

Yes, you read that right. By stressing the plants a bit, you’re actually forcing them to perform as best as they can. For example, have you noticed how small pots with flower plants in them produce too many flowers compared to big pots? That’s because the smaller pots actually stress the plants into fighting for space. But, it’s important to remember that you cannot stress the plants too much. Overdo it, and you risk killing the plants. So, you can start stressing the plants right when they are growing using different methods.

“How to flavor weed” is one question many people ask. And, it’s not only the growers but even users purchasing cannabis have the same question

lowrider weed plant

Lowryder: The First True Autoflowering World-Star Weed

Today’s autoflowering hybrids rival the finest photoperiod varieties. Once upon a time, ruderalis was regarded as ropey, substandard sinsemilla. Then, along came Lowryder, which changed the game forever. This is the true story of the ruderalis hybrid that made autoflowering cannabis awesome.

THE ORIGINS OF LOWRYDER

The US breeder known as the Joint Doctor is credited as the creator of the first commercially successful 100% autoflowering cannabis strain. Lowrider Magazine was the good doctor’s favourite car-mag, and the inspiration for the strain name. Willy’s Automatic didn’t really capture the essence of this game-changing hybrid anyhow. Lowryder was the perfect name for the original cannabis bonsai.

Lowryder is a three-way crossing nearly thirty years in the making. Beginning with a cross of the legendary Northern Lights #2 with the mysterious Mexican Ruddy, they finally hit the jackpot with the introduction of William’s Wonder genetics into the mix.

NORTHERN LIGHTS #2

Northern Lights #2 was commonly known as “Closet Queen” during the 1980s, and until the end of the decade, was a pillar of pioneering Dutch seedbanks. Today, this prized breeding stock has been lost somewhere in time. “The Indian” is weeping. The plant was even more compact than the Northern Lights we know today, and therefore favoured by early indoor growers. This short and dank phenotype was crossed with virtually everything during the ‘80s to create faster-flowering, more potent hybrids for indoor cultivation. Northern Lights #2 played a big role in moving cannabis cultivation indoors.

MEXICAN RUDDY

Gifted to the Joint Doctor by a dreadlocked Mexican pal, the “Mexican Ruddy” is still an unsolved cannabis mystery. Eventually, this enigma will be unravelled as we already have the technology. Unfortunately, the genome mapping of cannabis hasn’t even begun. All we can say for sure about this cannabis curiosity is that this is where the autoflowering trait comes from. Some say it’s a cross of Mexican sativa and Siberian ruderalis engineered at the University of Mississippi in the early 1970s. Another version claims it’s the product of the University of Ottawa cannabis research. And we have a few more far-out myths to share a little later. For now, let’s settle on the fact that it’s definitely ruderalis of some sort, and the seeds came from a Mexican dude.

WILLIAM’S WONDER

William’s Wonder is a refined blend of old-school Afghan genetics, reputedly developed by legendary breeder Sam the Skunkman and Sacred Seeds during the 1970s. Ironically first appearing in the ‘87/’88 Super Sativa Seed Club catalogue, her heavy-indica charms found favour amongst the cult of indoor cannabis cultivators. William’s Wonder or Willy’s Wonder was the magic ingredient that turned a mediocre photoperiod mix of NL#2 and Mexican Ruddy into the fully automatic Lowryder. The F1 NL#2 x MR offspring still carried the dominant photoperiod trait. Only the triple-threat Lowryder is 100% Autoflowering.

CANNABIS MYTH-BUSTING

To the modern micro-grower or super-auto sybarite familiar with cultivating next-gen autoflowering strains, it’s difficult to imagine the ropey ruderalis of old. It’s sad but true that many now-world-famous US and European breeders had autoflowering genetics within their grasp as early as the ‘70s.

Regrettably, the vast majority of breeding projects were abandoned early, and the autoflowering trait was ruthlessly weeded out. Huge mistake! Back then, it seemed like the right move. Indica-sativa crosses were the focus, and nobody had the time to figure out the secret to unlocking the autoflowering trait from otherwise undesirable “ditch weed”.

FINOLA is autoflowering industrial hemp from Finland with negligible THC levels. Crazy as it seems, this variety has been suggested as the possible secret identity of Mexican Ruddy or a usurper. It’s true that quite a few seedbanks have dabbled with industrial hemp autos, but with limited success. For starters, the resulting progeny are not uniformly autoflowering; often, up to 50% will not inherit the trait.

Moreover, boosting the psychoactive power of a hemp hybrid even to a modest 10% THC is not really viable. Furthermore, FINOLA can grow as tall as 1.8m; that’s significantly larger than the pint-sized 30–50cm Lowryder. The evidence to support FINOLA as an ingredient is circumstantial at best. This myth is busted.

LOWRYDER’S DANK DESCENDANTS

The first Lowryder seeds became widely available around 2003. It’s hard to believe it’s been 15 years, but that’s a long time in 21st century cannabis breeding. Lowryder has evolved and changed with the times. In fact, two of our own star auto strains share Lowryder genetics. Both Diesel Automatic and Quick One are dank descendants of Lowryder.

DIESEL AUTOMATIC

Diesel Automatic brings together the connoisseur darling head stash NYC Diesel with the upgraded Lowryder #2. Compact, low-maintenance, and a real mix of the best attributes from both parent strains, Diesel Automatic is already a favourite with microgrowers and outdoor growers farming in cooler climates. 14% THC flowers release a familiar flavour-blast of fuel upon combustion. Diesel Automatic delivers a clear, uplifting high. 50–70cm tall plants with an impressive flower-to-leaf ratio can yield as much as 110g/plant in 8 weeks from seed.

QUICK ONE

Quick One is our homage to Lowryder. The breeders at RQS fine-tuned the classic line to create a fast and furious autoflowering strain to meet the demands of the modern grower. Squat, 50–60cm plants will explode with bud sites and will be ready for harvest in 8–9 weeks post-germination. A blistering pace and bumper yields of up to 150g/plant are possible after a Royal renovation. Quick One is not too heavy or overwhelming. Rather, her fruity citrus nugs are a relaxing chill-out stash with a respectable 13% THC.

Autoflowering cannabis has been on a wild ruderalis ride. Let’s go back to the beginning and find out how it all got started with a strain called Lowryder.

how much will lowryder#2 yield under good conditions?

i had 4 out of 5 turn out to be female. They started getting nice nugz on them about 12 days ago

anyway, what will i yield off each one dry, they have been under a 400watt hps 18/6, and look quite healthy.

im more interested in dried/cured weight, rather than wet.

i did try to search “lowryder yield” but only came back with 2 results.

basically this is what im worried about aftr seeing some of the none auto-flowering plants on here, which have monsterous buds.

If you think it through, well first off its a small plant, secondly it finishes quickly.
You can work it out really, wheres even close to an ounce gonna come from? They dont really start to develop buds until about week 4 (females show sex at week 3 but dont really bud up till week 4), there aren’t many budding sites as the size of the plant more or less dictates that, so you have 4 weeks for a 12 inch plant to whack on an ounce from very few budding sites.

i thought lowryder original, was supposed to yield about about 18g dry, not 80+.

but yeah, id be happy with 40g dry off each plant.

dude – are you seriously saying that you got 80 grams per plant? even 40 is damn near impossible with my experience. i’ve grown Lowryder #2 twice and have seen it grown three other times and between the two of us, we averaged maybe 20 grams/plant. I use cfl’s and he uses 600 watt HPS. He gets more than I do, but I will never grow an autoflower again based on the weak yields. to me, it’s simple logic – autoflowers are quicker and yield twice less than normal strains whereas for a month longer, I can get MUCH more bud. I will NEVER grow an autoflower again, but to each his own.

i’m not judging the strain as a whole – if you’re informed and decide to pick the autoflower, then that’s fine. the only advantage I could perceive is that it finishes a month earlier. if a month is a big deal to you, then pick the lowryder, but if you can wait, you’ll get much more bud.

I will say that I enjoyed the lowryder smoke however. it was nice, but again – everything i’ve grown since the lowryder has been infinitely better. take what you will from my comments. i’d expect 20 grams or so from your plants.

I have been reaserching the shit out of these autos and those yeilds are CRAZY, with those yeilds you have broken records for the strain if it was Lowryder. That is awesome.

LR II is from the Joint DR and is a much bigger plant thanb the original. I have some growing right now and they are packing on the bud for tiny little plants. I have two phenotypes growing , one is 14″ tall and buds all over with a strong smell, the other is a 7″ tall frosty bud from dirt to the top, it looks like it should be dripping resin and smells like pine needles. I grew them as a tester to see if I like them. The good thing is you can do a seed run and end up with hundreds of beans, then a batch of 20 or so in 1 gal pots from seed will net you a decent bag of buds in 2 months.

For larger yeilds as far as autos go the auto AK47 or a cross will out produce the LRs, they grow much larger than the originals. check out the auto board on planet ganja, lots of info. There really are some good crosses. I have auto white russian, and ak47xblueberry on the way, and three of the AK47 autos just breaking the soil in my grow.

They are testers for now, I have four 12/12 strains growing which will go to flower in two weeks, so the autos will just hang out and do their thing, 1 gal pots fill the spaces nicely between my others. I am real curious about them and wanted to see for myself. From all the grows I read about over on PG those guys are growing some great bud.

They seem to be very popular with the UK guys there, with short grow seasons they can get get multiple harvests.

Unfortunately my low ryders are low priority in the pecking order of my cab. I am vegging some Blue moonshine, skunk #1, and white Russan, the cab is 24/0 right now, I will go to 12/12 in two weeks and the LRs are along for the ride. The LRIIs will be almost done by then, and the LRxAK47s (3)will just grow at 12/12 until the others finish.

I know this is not optimum, but the 12/12 strains are my primary focus. My next grow will be all autos, just to try. I will have a good med supply so they are more for fun than anything else, but if its good bud all the better.

is it safe to smoke weed stems

How To Put Your Cannabis Stems To Good Use

It’s common to hear people associate cannabis stems with low-quality bud, and you might think they’re nothing but a headache. Try saving them next time you find them, though. Whether you want some THC-kissed tea, cannabutter, hash, or even some twine or yarn, the possibilities are nearly endless if you save them and know what to do.

Repurpose your cannabis stems to make the most of your crop!

If you’re not the type to grind up your stems with your bud, you’ve either got a garbage bag full of them or an impressive collection. If you’re in the former group, we’ve got some information that might make you reconsider. If you’re in the latter, though, today just might be your lucky day.

WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR MARIJUANA STEMS?

You see, those stems are a lot more than scraps to throw out when grinding your cannabis flower. In fact, if you store up enough, you can get plenty lifted off those alone. And, if you don’t want to get high, you can even give them a second life as arts and crafts items, or even mulch! How? We’ll cover the details as we go along.

SMOKING

The simplest solution, although it’s the least recommended, is to grind your stems up and smoke them. This is always a harsh experience, and the smoke contains many unwanted compounds from the cellulose in the stems. The cellulose also makes stems burn extremely hot—more than enough to burn your throat and lungs. Again, it is not recommended, so please be careful. Very few people do this, but for some reason, some decide to light them up.

CHARAS

Hash doesn’t get much more hands-on than this. To obtain charas, start by rubbing your stems between your hands. After that, rub your hands together over a container to get a whisker of hash. It won’t be much in that moment. However, work through 100 grams of stems with average THC content, and you may be impressed at what you’ve managed to gather. The end result is a multi-flavoured pile of hash that’s as old-school as it gets.

If you want to get this process started, just take your stems, break them down, and throw them into a resealable plastic bag. Place this bag in your freezer, and let it sit until you’ve got more to add. When you add to the collection, give the bag a healthy shake. Each time you shake, the now-frozen resin crystals will begin to detach from the stem fragments. Slowly but surely, you’ll build up an impressive pile at the bottom of the bag. Once you sift out the stems, you’ll have a whole bunch of kief ready to smoke!

BUBBLE HASH

Similarly, if you want some quality bubble hash, the first step is freezing the stems. Rather than shaking, though, you’ll be throwing these in a blender. Use the blender method recipe from our full guide to making hash—just replace “flowers” with “stems”. If you follow all the right instructions, repeating the process about 4–5 times, quality bubble hash will be in your future.

DON’T FORGET DECARBOXYLATION

Before anything, if you want to make use of the THC content of your stems, decarboxylation is key. It might seem like a confusing process based off the name, but it really just means you’re heating them up to a certain point. This process creates the easily absorbable and immediately psychoactive THC from its precursor chemical, THCA. This, in turn, makes the stems perfect for tinctures, hash, extracts, and edibles.

To decarboxylate, evenly spread your stems on an oven tray and place in the oven at 110°C (or 100°C for a fan-assisted oven) for 60 minutes. Once decarboxylated, your stems are ready to go!

TEA AND CHAI

To get started, you’ll need a healthy handful of stems that have not been rubbed for hash. Start off by putting 450ml of water and a tablespoon of coconut oil into a small saucepan. Chop and add your stems and slowly bring to a gentle, but not rolling, boil, stirring continuously. Let them boil like this for 7 or 8 minutes, as the fluid needs to reduce. Strain out your stems, let the mixture cool for a bit, and enjoy!

Plain cannabis tea can taste a bit rough, though, so you might consider adding herbs and sweeteners to your beverage. For tea, mints, lemon, honey, sugar, or any flavoured tea bag can mask the taste. If you’re making chai, adding cardamom pods, pepper, and ginger for that traditional zing makes it a tasty and tingly delight.

MARIJUANA LIQUEUR

Whiskeys, vodkas, or tequilas that are 40% alcohol or more can all dissolve the resin of cannabis. We’ve got a great recipe for cannabis-infused vodka here, but it’s quite a simple process overall.

Decant your chosen alcohol into a mason jar to allow for easier access. Let the stems sit in there for a week or so at a time. By the time you’ve got another handful of stems ready to add, the old ones will have released their treasures into the mix.

For potency to build, this little project may take a few months and a few handfuls of stems. By the end of the process, though, you’ll have a strong cross-fade in one convenient, potent drink.

THC BUTTER AND OTHER EDIBLES

If you have enough broken-down stems to fill up half a saucepan, then THC-infused butter is on the menu! Replacing stems for buds in this cannabutter recipe will produce a similar product, but with a much milder effect. Where the recipe suggests “28g of flowers”, replace with “as many chopped stems as possible”. Using your butter in culinary creations will add a nice buzz to any course.

TOPICALS

Perhaps one of the most unconventional ways to enjoy cannabis are weed-infused topicals, which have become quite popular over the past couple of years. Along with moisturising your skin, cannabis-infused lotions and creams can help care for your muscles in a new way. They’re also a wonder for supple joints, along with tackling sensitive, red skin especially well. Thankfully, we’ve already got a recipe for cannabis lotion! Note, however, that you’ll be replacing “15–30g of flowers” with 2–3x the amount of stems, or the closest you can get.

ARTS AND CRAFTS

You might not think about it often, but there’s a good bit more you can do with cannabis outside of enjoying its effects. It’s a natural plant material like any other, and that means it can see a lot of use in arts and crafts!

PAPER

It might sound unconventional at first, but remember that hemp is one of the main alternatives to wood-based paper. Considering that, stem-based paper is far from odd, albeit a bit coarse.

The most challenging part of making paper is first making a vat. This can be pantyhose stretched over a wire armature, or old fly-wire screen stapled to a wooden frame. The idea is to have a flat, permeable surface that will let the water in the pulp drain away.

Then, in a blender, combine an equal amount of stems and regular paper. Add enough water for the mixture to move and blend freely. When the mix is a slurry with minimal bits left intact, pour it out evenly onto the vat. Gently shake the vat until the pulp is evenly spread. If you’re making a larger piece of paper, you’ll need a squeegee to get things even. Leave this to drain and dry. After 24 hours, gently peel your paper away and hang it out to dry. Trim to your needs, and enjoy!

WEAVING SMALL

Even on the small scale, stems and small stalks can be stripped of their outer fibre. This process, called decorticating, involves one of the most sophisticated tools out there: your hands. Held together by a cellulose matrix, these fibres need to be rubbed between the fingers to be separated into individual strands. These individual lengths of fibres can be twisted into tough lengths of raw twine. If you save up enough, you’ve got tons of creative possibilities! Might we suggest a tasteful homemade bracelet?

WEAVING BIGGER

The possibilities get even wider, though, if you’re a home grower with even more stems lying around. When you strip trunks and main branches of their much longer fibres, you can start making decorations, baskets, and even yarn if you work at it long enough!

MULCH

Capping things off, you can even use your stems to grow yourself some more cannabis! Specifically, you can use a wood chipper (or another processing method) to turn the stems into a reliable mulch. This will protect the soil under it, making sure plants keep as much of their rainwater as possible. There’s a lot more information to cover when it comes to properly applying mulch in the growing process, but we hope to have sparked your interest in the idea!

PUT YOUR HUMBLE WEED STEMS TO GOOD USE

See? There’s no need to get mad at the humble stem! There’s a world of use to be found if you’ve got the right supplies, and you can even get high on them if you play your cards right! We hope this has helped you appreciate just how versatile the cannabis plant can be!

You might think cannabis stems are a waste. On the contrary, there are quite a few ways to put them to good use! Find out how inside.

PSA: Don’t Smoke Those Stems

These are crazy times, so it’s not that weird that you’re looking at your bowl of weed stems and contemplating smoking them. Waste not, want not, right?

As nice as it is to reduce waste and be resourceful, smoking stems isn’t the way to go.

If stems are all you have left, then you’ve already smoked the good stuff.

Stems contain almost no THC. What little may be in there doesn’t even come close to being enough to produce a high.

The negligible amount of THC in stems isn’t worth the unpleasant effects and risk to your lungs that come with smoking.

Inhaling smoke harms your lungs. It doesn’t matter if it’s bud, seed, tobacco, or burning wood. Toxins and carcinogens (cancer-causing agents) are released from the combustion of materials, even stems. This damages your lungs and increases your risk for cancer and heart and lung diseases.

Smoke effects aside, smoking stems can cause:

  • a raging headache
  • a sore throat
  • coughing

It’ll also taste like you’re smoking wood chips.

Some people on Reddit and other forums who admit to having smoked weed stems also reported uncomfortable gastrointestinal symptoms, like nausea and abdominal pain.

Nope. You shouldn’t smoke those either.

Marijuana seeds aren’t going to get you high no matter how many you crush and smoke. There’s just not enough THC in the seeds to produce any effects.

Lighting them up will create a lot of snap, crackle, and pop. The acrid smoke will irritate your throat and damage your lungs like other smoke. But that’s about it.

Stems and seeds aren’t worth smoking, but that doesn’t mean they’re entirely useless. You may be able to use lingering stems and seeds. Exactly what you can do with them depends on how many you have.

If you just have a few seeds kicking around, you could plant them and try growing your own stash (if you live in an area where this is permitted, of course).

Have an abundance of stems and seeds to play with? Consider eating it.

Here are some ways to make it appetizing.

Brew some stem tea

Before getting your brew on, you’ll want to bake the stems on a baking sheet in the oven for around 45 minutes at 225°F (107°C). When done, let the stems cool, and then grind them up.

Put your ground stems in a tea diffuser and let them steep in boiling water for 10 to 15 minutes. If you don’t have a diffuser, you can steep your ground stems in a pot of boiling water and then place a coffee filter over your mug and pour so it strains your brew.

Make stem butter

Who doesn’t like butter?

Just like when making tea from weed stems, you’ll want to bake your stems in the oven at 225°F (107°C) for 45 minutes and let them cool before grinding.

Place some butter in a pan and melt over low heat. Once the butter’s completely melted, add the ground stems and let simmer for around 30 minutes, stirring often.

To strain it, cheesecloth works best. Just secure the cheesecloth over a glass jar with a rubber band, and slowly pour the butter over the cloth. Let the butter cool and — voilà — stem butter!

It might be tempting to smoke all those stems that are gathering dust in your jar, but you may want to think twice before lighting up.

Runts strain

It’s pretty decent for a 50/50 hybrid..I’m more into the heavy Indica’s

Idk WHO wrote this the first paragraph of this but u made an error somewhere , look at what is written there at the beginning , its says 70% Indica 30% Sativa then u go down an it says an evenly balanced Hybrid 50% Indica 50% Sativa , so my question is WHICH is it ? Plz get back to me asap ty

Most of us know that anything crossed with Zkittlez should turn out well. However the Runtz turned out pretty potent and always have had a good taste with effects that last. This time I went with the Mango version also available on the menu and have never been disappointed with either strain

GAS FLAVORS! Delicious strain with a great and fast acting buzz 🔥

Amazing high. Relaxes the body and makes the mind go wild. Feels like you ate an edible. Makes you happy even though you have to try hard to fight off the sleep.

Very thick green creamy smoke. Hashy exhale. I’d put this strain on high gas alert. Very stoned, very relaxed, heavy eyed, I see this being a great cure for headaches and migraines. Due to its dark purple and green colors and green smoke I’m getting a vibe of sailing on a stormy ocean fighting a kraken or something. This is a good relaxing, day dreaming, overall positive experience. Glad I picked this up.

The first time I tried Runtz it was organic and I was not impressed. However, this time and batch around I am definitely FEELING THIS 😜🤣🙌 It’s a premium quality and I taste the difference. It has a fruity taste and its sweet to smoke. I think i will be adding this on my top ten list. The high is nice and I am a stoner who smokes over 5 blunts a day easily, and that is a day that I work. If I’m home all day it is way more. It gives a nice head high and leaves a sweet taste in my mouth. 🎯😜🌬🍃🍁💨

I know that Everytime I smoke, it’ll only take a few hits and I’m where I need to be. I can function and focus with a positive and happy attitude.

Runtz is an evenly balanced hybrid strain (50% indica/50% sativa) created through a delicious cross of the infamous Zkittlez X Gelato strains. Named for the iconic candy, Runtz brings on a super delicious fruity flavor with tropical citrus and sour berries galore. The aroma is very similar, altho…

No. Both medical and adult-use marijuana are illegal in the state. CBD extract with less than 0.9% THC and at least 5% CBD by weight is allowed for patients with intractable epilepsy. It’s only legal to possess it in the state; patients and caregivers must obtain it outside state lines.

A first offense of possession of 0.5 ounce of cannabis or less or 0.2 ounce of hash or less is a Class C misdemeanor , which is punishable by a maximum fine of $200. Larger amounts and subsequent offenses may carry more severe penalties.

Legislative history

Gov. Pat McCrory signed HB 1220 , the Epilepsy Alternative Treatment Act, into law in 2014. HB 1220 granted access to low-THC hemp extract to patients diagnosed with intractable epilepsy.

In July 2015, HB 1220 was amended by HB 766 , which increased the allowed amount of THC from 0.3% to 0.9% and decreased the required CBD amount from 10% to 5%. It also expanded the number of qualified physicians, increased the number of certified hospitals, and removed the requirement that patients be children.

Where is it safe to purchase?

North Carolina does not have a state-regulated supply chain or any other state-sponsored method of obtaining hemp oil extract. Caregivers must purchase hemp oil extract in a state that offers reciprocity.

Where is it safe to consume?

North Carolina has not placed limits or restrictions on patient consumption.

Cultivation

The DHHS forbids the cultivation of cannabis or the production of hemp oil extract for any reason within North Carolina.

Medical CBD program overview

North Carolina allows patients with intractable epilepsy and their caregivers to possess and consume CBD extract with less than 0.9% THC and at least 5% CBD by weight. The patients must be diagnosed by and have a written statement from a state-licensed, board certified neurologist who is affiliated with the neurology department of a state-licensed hospital.

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is responsible for regulatory oversight of the Epilepsy Alternative Treatment Act program, and for enrolling registered patients and caregivers in the program. Patients must appoint a caregiver to obtain the extract. No registry card is required for patients. There is no minimum age for patients who can participate in the program, though caregivers must be at least 18 years old.

Caregiver requirements

Though the law no longer requires that patients be children, it specifies that only caregivers are allowed to possess CBD extract. Caregivers must be at least 18 years old and must be a permanent resident of North Carolina. Only a parent, legal guardian, or custodian of a person with intractable epilepsy is eligible to be a registered caregiver.

Once all materials have been submitted, and the application has been processed, caregivers will receive a letter from the DHHS authorizing their approval. Caregivers must carry this letter with them when in possession of hemp extract within North Carolina. They must also carry or keep near the CBD extract a certificate of analysis for the extract that shows it meets the state’s standards.

Application process:

  1. Obtain a written statement from a state-licensed neurologist affiliated with a state-licensed hospital.
  2. Submit a valid North Carolina ID card or driver’s license to show proof of age and residency.
  3. Complete and submit a written caregiver’s application .

Testing

There is currently no lab testing required by the state.

FAQ

How long before medical marijuana is legal in North Carolina?

While we can’t predict the future, we do know that North Carolinans can’t petition to get an medical marijuana initiative added to the ballot. Any path to legalize marijuana would have to go through the state legislature.

Unlike in other states that have legalized cannabis for medical or recreational use, North Carolina residents can’t petition to get an medical marijuana initiative added to the ballot.

City police officers or county sheriffs typically make marijuana arrests though state highway patrol officers (troopers) may also arrest people suspected of possession, consumption, or trafficking. After arrest, trials usually take place in local courts.

Lawmakers Mull Marijuana Legalization

Home » Blog » Lawmakers Mull Marijuana Legalization

UPDATE: As of August 2020, Senate Bill 58, which increases the amount of marijuana someone can legally carry for personal use and expunges records of those with certain marijuana convictions, is stalled. The bill was introduced on February 14, 2019 with one writer and eight co-sponsors, but since that point, no forward movement has occurred.

In February 2019, Senator Paul Lowe (D-Forsyth) reintroduced a measure in the State Senate which would allow people to possess up to three ounces of cannabis legal for their own personal use. Last year’s version, which lawmakers did not approve, would have allowed up to four ounces. Nevertheless, this latest bill would significantly alter the legal landscape for Raleigh drug possession attorneys.

What is Senate Bill 58?

This measure is something of a compromise. SB 58 enhances the charges for possession of more than three ounces to a Class 1 misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum 120-day jail sentence and a discretionary fine. Furthermore, the bill increases the weight of cannabis a person can carry from 1.5 ounces to one pound before it is considered a Class 1 felony. A conviction on this count could result in imprisonment for up to five months.

Currently, possession of up to 1.5 ounces is a Class 3 misdemeanor, which carries a maximum 20-day jail sentence and a fine of no more than $200. Possession of 1.5 to 16 ounces is a Class 1 felony offense.

SB 58 is a significant departure from current North Carolina law. The Tarheel State has some of the strictest marijuana laws in the country. Recreational marijuana is completely illegal, and medical marijuana is only available to patients with epilepsey. Even then, these patients must use a special grade of marijuana with a low THC and high CBD content.

Would SB 58 Help Individuals Who Have Marijuana Possession Convictions on Their Records?

Maybe. If the prior conviction was for simple possession under three ounces and there were no aggravating circumstances, SB 58 authorizes a Raleigh drug possession attorney to file an expungement petition with the court that handed down the conviction. If the District Attorney and probation officer agree to the petition, or at least do not contest it, the judge will probably grant it.

Many people with marijuana and other convictions experience hardship when looking for a good job, obtaining student aid, finding a good place to live, and in other situations.

Lawmakers may yet relax the marijuana laws in North Carolina. For a free consultation with an experienced Raleigh drug possession attorney, contact Sandman, Finn & Fitzhugh, Attorneys at Law. Fill out the form below or call us at (919) 887-8040.

A new Senate bill allows possession of up to three ounces of marijuana. If you need help with a current case, call our Raleigh drug possession attorneys.

Alaskan Thunder

The smell from ATF is amazing and deserves an award on its own; it reminds me of frosty pine or menthol… with a fresh lemon scent.

To the naked eye, the buds are all very nicely grown except for the one small bud could use slightly better trimming. Other than that, Alaskan Thunder marijuana reminded me most of Jack Herer (taste, smoke, aroma) with a more intense (cerebral) head high. This strain is definitely one of my top 3 favorite Sativas of all-time.

Description

The Alaskan Thunder (ATF for short) strain originates from the Matanuska Valley in Alaska and its Sativa genetics are somewhat of a mystery. Being a Sativa, this strain really only affects your head and is a popular choice of medication for medical marijuana patients suffering from chronic migraines, PTSD, sleep disorders, and more.

The Alaskan Thunder strain is known for its ability to create a soaring, cerebral head-high. It can definitely take your mind for a ride, so you may want to start with low quantities (1-2 puffs) if you are a first-time patient who is afraid of experiencing any sort of paranoia.

Alaskan Thunder should be considered a morning or day-time Sativa due to its peaceful, uplifting nature. This strain always makes me feel more talkative than normal, and even more intellectual at times, due to its deep, thought-inducing high.
