Had to try it for myself...and.... It worked for me! I have a moderate to almost strong buzz going, as does my friend, and this was the procedure that worked: Picked a BUNCH of stems outta various old bags of weed. It amounted to maybe what an 1/8 looks like spread on the bottem of a baggie. I then put 2 1/2 cups of water on to boil along with 1/2 cup of whole milk in a seperate pot. I ground the stems up in a coffee grinder, and it was a smaller amount then I expected, enough dust to cover the whole bottom of the press pot I was using and no more. Once the milk began to boil (in case you have never warmed milk, KEEP AN EYE ON IT, or else you'll have a white mess on your hands. I am a dirty man.) I put the milk in the press pot FIRST. Now that the milk had sat there for 2-3min, I poured the boiling water in, and let it all steep in a relatively sealed press pot. After 5 minutes of steeping I poured the mixture out, mixed with sugar and an orange tea bag, and I really must say it tasted damn good. AND it got me slightly stoned. Don't expect a brownie trip from this, but as said earlier, what else are you gonna do with stems?
