Is there any benefit to including stems when cooking?
More specifically, when making butter and oil.
I would think so, when you look close at them they do have trichome like hairs on them. I always include them. Would be interesting to see a before and after on some stems.
i have always thrown them out, I am glad I asked!
I've always included stem when cooking. Because why the hell not?
Looked at those "hairs" on the stem, but there's no trich bubble head.
I throw them out. Even if there was a tiny bit of THC there, it would be offset by the huge amount of plant material that does nothing but take away from the good stuff and hurt purity. My opinion only.
From now on, I'll keep them and look for a local @Stu to give them to.
I have never bothered with them. To me the amount they might contain is negligible when compared to the leaves and trimmings.
I actually go out of my way to remove them when cooking to make straining/pressing easier.
I figure there's no harm in simmering them in with your other ABV and it's easier than taking the time to pick them out before when you can just strain it all out after when you completely done.
I have heard though that vaping/ smoking stems can give you a headache. Not sure why though
theres thc on those stems. i always put my stems in my abv container for when i make the bi monthly edible batch.
