To create cannabis leaf butter, you will need to heat your butter and leaves over low heat. This will both decarboxylate your cannabinoids and assist in their absorption into the butter. The same general technique can be used to infuse cannabinoids into oils like olive oil or coconut oil. Once the butter has been strained of the plant material and cooled, it can be spread on toast or used to create any number of cannabis-infused edibles. Try incorporating your cannabis leaf butter into baked goods like brownies, or using it to top baked potatoes or a steak at dinner for a twist on the traditional marijuana edible.
If you are growing your own cannabis at home, either indoors or sun grown, then there are a few ways to use cannabis fan leaves better than as compost.

Before diving into all the exciting ways to use cannabis leaves, let’s start with some marijuana leaf basics.
Here, we will discuss the various potential uses of marijuana leaves to ensure you are getting the most out of your cannabis plant each and every harvest.
Cannabis juice can be made at home with any type of blender. The raw cannabis leaves and even buds are first pulverized and then hand-pressed through a strainer or cheesecloth, which separates the pulp from the juice. Alternatively, a home juicer can be used to add marijuana leaves to any preferred juicing blend of fruits or vegetables.
Whether using your compost on your cannabis plants, your home garden, or both, you will be saving the nutrients in your household waste and returning them to the soil where they can provide the most benefit.
These two types of marijuana leaves are often discarded, but they can be very valuable for making nutritious and cannabinoid-infused beverages and edibles that you can make at home or to amend previously-used soil to grow strong and healthy plants. Here are 4 healthy and green ways to use your cannabis leaves.
A more effective method might be to heat dried cannabis leaves in some coconut oil. This will extract and amplify whatever cannabinoids happen to be present in the leaves. This cannabinoid-infused coconut oil can then be added to loose leaf tea and used to create tea with activated cannabinoids and a carrier fat to make them more easily absorbed by the body.

This may seem comical to someone who is more familiar with cannabis, but I totally understand why people might think people are smoking leaves. The weed leaf has been the iconic symbol for weed for decades. It’s on hats, shirts, posters, and a million other things. How many times do you see a picture of a bud on a shirt? Much Less. Also, other smokable plants like tobacco are harvested for their leaves so there’s a logical connection there too.
Be very careful if you are planning to make hash. I do not recommend using solvents to make concentrates (like BHO) unless you have training and a proper lab to make it. Instead, try making bubble hash. It creates a terrific product without using solvents or even heat.
Some fan leaves may have more than other so it doesn’t hurt to give them a look. Check the stems as these can sometimes be a source of trichomes. In the end, I really don’t suggest smoking fan leaves if your intention is to get high. It would just take too much to be effective. Smoking so much would probably make you light headed before it would get you high.
Not all weed leaves are created equal. All types of leaves are necessary for the health of the plant, but sugar leaves are what you really want if you’re looking to smoke some leaves. I’m going to break down the most common types of leaves you’ll come across.
I bundle trimmings together with sugar leaves. Trimmings can refer to anything you trim off a plant, but in this case, I’m referring to the leaves that are growing through the buds. In this case, you don’t cut off the entire leaf, but rather trim the parts of the leaf that are sticking out through the bud.
If you really want to know more about eating weed to get high then I recommend you read my article specifically on the subject. Put simply, while you could get high from just eating weed leaves, it is a really terrible way to get high. You would have to eat a lot of leaves and most of the THCa would never get converted to THC and it would just pass through your digestive system. Again, if you want to know more about this check out the link to my article above.
It’s probably no surprise you can smoke weed leaves, but the real question is – will it get you high? Also, how strong is the high? Are certain types of leaves better for smoking than others? Should I dry/cure my leaves before smoking them?
Smoking a leaf of a cannabis plant that is still in the vegetative state will likely yield no results. Most of the trichomes containing THC are developed during the flowering stage.
THC is produced at certain times during the plant’s life cycle. The plant goes through further changes as the leaf is dried and cured. Most people agree the best time to smoke a weed leaf is after it’s cured.
