    Swim found a great recipe for weed tea but swim was wondering if when boiling the weed with water and butter would the smell of the drug come out and be very evident? because that would not be good for my situation....

    The butter is needed to absorb THC without it nothing gets absorbed.


    Edit: Sorry I didn't mean no THC but very little.

    Strange that I get so stoned everytime I drink MJ-tea then, huh?
    I've also eaten hashish many times, just chewed it and swallowed. It always works.

    Yes swim would say it is quite strange to make it that way and get soooo stoned...since you get no THC out of it that way.


    Agree with the hash part.

    Don't know about making tea much but hash will definitely get you fucked if you eat it straight. You can get quite psychedelic experiences off of it.

    I read somewhere that when you eat cannabis THC is converted into 11-hydroxy-THC in your liver which affects your brain differently. Interesting, though I don't know much about it as of yet.

    What confuses me more though is how you need fat for THC to take effect yet my friend swim has eaten hash on a number of occaisions and gotten extremely high without anything else to mix it in. Hash is pure resin glands so maybe that helps but swim is confused as to how it works so well while eating regular weed doesn't do much without extraction.

    I will explain further. THC does dissolve in H2O but at a very low amount. Maybe at around a couple of grams per litre (probley less then that). This generally would be uneffective for a good buzz (but not saying that it wouldn't be possible to feel something) It would take a good amount of tea for that, probley around a gallon or more. On the other hand THC is very lipophilic meaning it has an affinity for lipids (fats). So by adding butter would extract more than just boiling in water giving a higher concentration thus giving a far greater buzz and drinking far less liquid. Just making tea via water alone is just wasting it. Just by simply adding something of fatty nature butter, milk, cream etc. it would increase your experience ten fold. I would urge swim to try it out the next time he makes an herbal tea.

    ^^^^^

    What about hash though? Cause while swim definitely knows that you need lipids to help extract the THC from marijuana, when he ingested hashish it seemed to work quite well. In fact he wouldn't want stronger effects from the amounts of hash he consumed, they were quite high already. Is this due to the high concentration of THC as well as the fact that it isn't contained within the plant material for the most part?

    You don't have to dissolve THC in anything for it to be absorbed in your body. The enzymes and acids in your gastrointestinal tract do a beautiful job of dissolving all sorts of things including hashish, THC or just plain MJ-tea.
    THC does dissolve to an extent in water, though it dissolves much better in non-polar solvents. THC dissolved in ethanol is also possible (Green dragon). When SWIM makes MJ-tea he usually uses the clippings from him homegrown ladies and gents. The first cup is dark yellow-brown and on subsequent strainings he crushes the leaves through the tea-sieve and gets a greener tea. In this way all the trichomes are ingested and he gets quite stoned. The THC certainly reaches his brain cause SWIM has been around for years and is quite familiar with the effects of THC.
    Usually though SWIM prefers smoking as the effect dos'nt last as long as eating or drinking the stuff and SWIM likes the sudden rush that a good pipe can give. But on the other hand he is too lazy to make hash of the clippings and too cheap to throw them in the bin. So SWIM makes tea of it and it works very well. Half a litre of tea (4-5 cups) made from fairly nice clippings puts SWIM in a very nice mood indeed.
