Federal Blvd Dispensary Offers Ounce Deals, Wax Deals and More

Are you looking for a low priced dispensary in Denver with high quality marijuana? If so, get yourself over to The Lodge Cannabis. With a recreational and medical marijuana downtown Denver dispensary near City Park, and another recreational dispensary on Federal Blvd., the Lodge Cannabis is easy to find and well worth the trip with all the money you’ll save.

Some dispensaries may appear to offer great prices, but the weed is only so-so...which every savvy stoner knows, is no kind of deal at all! The Lodge, however, manages to get it right, offering super high-quality marijuana deals at a value price that they guarantee to be the lowest you’ll find.

They offer a different daily special each day of the week, like Monday’s BOGO 50% off edibles deal and a 15% off discount on vape products every Friday. That’s not the limit to their deals, though. You can save even more by using The Lodge Cannabis dispensary coupons which you can find on the Cannasaver website. The dispensary changes their deals and offers new specials frequently, so you’ll have to look on there to find the very newest marijuana deals. Often, The Lodge Cannabis coupons on Cannasaver can save you as much as $50 on your marijuana or concentrates purchase. You’ll usually find coupons for $92 ounce deals, $40 quarters of mix-and-match connoisseur marijuana strains, wax and shatter grams for $18, and other great deals. Right now, you can find a coupon for a $99 ounce of the Bear Dance strain, a flavorful, well-balanced hybrid crossing Snowcap and Kush.

If you’ve never been to The Lodge Cannabis, you should definitely check it out. If you’re going to the Lodge dispensary on Federal, I recommend making an adventure of it with a stop by one of Denver’s best Asian markets along the way. The S. Federal Blvd. dispensary is near the Denver Far East Center, a shopping center that features authentic Asian restaurants, unique gift stores, bakeries, a grocery, and other interesting goods and services. You can do a little shopping, then head down Federal for less than a mile to find The Lodge Cannabis dispensary at 82 S. Federal Blvd. This location only sells recreational marijuana, though, so if you need medical marijuana deals, you’ll have to visit the dispensary near City Park at 3944 N. High Street, which serves medical as well as recreational clientele. The High Street dispensary is only one-tenth of a mile away from The Lofts at Denver Rock Drill Works, about three miles from City Park, and about two miles from Mercury Cafe. It’s as easy to access via public transit as is their dispensary on Federal near Denver Far East Center.

While you’re at the dispensary, look for The Lodge Cannabis coupons and deals on Cannasaver. Just use your phone to pull up the Lodge dispensary coupon deal you want, and show it to the budtender to get huge savings on your marijuana products from buds to edibles to concentrates to glass and other accessories. Cannasaver dispensary coupons are always easy to use, and  free of annoying pop-ups and spam ads. All you’ll find is great weed deals and coupons from dispensaries nearby that you can trust.

The Lodge Cannabis is one of the best dispensaries in Denver, and Cannasaver is proud to bring you their best deals daily. Stop by today and tell them the Savvy Stoner sent you!

What to Do With Weed Stems

What to Do With Weed Stems

Posted by CANNASaver on Wednesday, 10 February 2021 in Canna Blog

Ew, weed stems...those small (or sometimes rather large) sticks at the end of the cannabis flower.

Sometimes when you buy cannabis flowers or buds from a dispensary or online at a cannabis provider like CannaSaver.com, there may be extensive stem—depending on the quality of the product. 

Weed stems contain little to no THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.

Why Are Weed Stems Not Used? 

Because they contain little THC, weed stems have often been discarded as worthless. However, these parts of the cannabis plant can be used for several products.

Why Not Smoke Weed Stems?

Although it may be tempting to use every bit of the cannabis you’ve paid for or grown, avoid smoking weed stems.

Low in THC, weed stems will not get you high. 

There are also negative side effects. Healthline.com outlines some of them.

  • Smoke inhalation damages your lungs.

  • Toxins and carcinogens are released through smoking. These can cause cancer.

  • Breathing toxins can also increase the risk of heart disease.

  • Smoking stems can cause severe headaches.

  • Stem smoking may result in a sore throat.

  • Smoking stems may trigger uncontrollable and/or persistent coughing.

  • The smoke from stems is not pleasant. It tastes like charred wood chips.

  • Some stem smokers reported uncomfortable gas.

Uses of Weed Stems

Even though smoking weed stems is not recommended, there are some products that can be made using the stems.

"CannaTea"

Thrillist.com (https://www.thrillist.com/eat/nation/how-to-make-cannabis-tea-recipe) provides a recipe for making weed stem tea.

Grind a gram of weed stems

Add:

  • A tablespoon of unsalted butter or coconut oil

  • Teabag in the flavor of your choice 

  • Four cups of water

  • Flavor ingredients like honey, lemon, mint, milk, sugar, or cinnamon

  • Cheesecloth, coffee filter, or a fine strainer

Boil water in a medium-sized pot. Add butter or coconut oil to boiling water. Allow to dissolve completely. 

Add ground cannabis. Turn the temperature to simmer.

Simmer for fifteen minutes. 

Use a cheesecloth or coffee filter to strain the mixture into an empty teapot. 

Add the teabag and extras. Steep for three minutes.

Remove the teabag. Stir well. Pour and enjoy.

Decarboxylation

Decarboxylation is the removal of the carboxyl group from cannabis stems. The process toasts the stems converting THC into a psychoactive form called Delta 9-THC. This increases the consistency and the potency of the weed. The heat acts as a catalyst. You can use your oven.

  • Pre-heat oven to 215° F.

  • Put weed stems on a cookie sheet.

  • Toast for 15 minutes.

  • Raise oven setting to 240° F.

  • Toast for 45 minutes more.

  • Remove from oven.

  • Cool.

  • Fine grind toasted stems.

  • Use immediately or store in a light-tight/air-tight container.

Kief

Break off weed stems. Place in Ziploc plastic bags. Put bags in the freezer. Let sit.  Add additional stems as they become available. Give the bag a thorough shake each time you add stems. A pile will build at the bottom of the bag. The frozen resin crystals will detach from the stems. Sift the stems out of the residue and discard them. What’s left at the bottom of the bag is kief. You can smoke this or you can cook with it.

Hash

Separating the trichomes from the cannabis plant produces hashish. Trichomes are hair-like structures on the surface of the buds. Hash can also be made from kief.

RoyalQueenSeeds.com provides a step-by-step guide to creating hash.

Using solvents like butane, propane, or CO₂ extract the cannabinoids and terpenes from the trichomes or kief.

Before using, it is vital to purge the solvent. Whip it into a wax form, over a hot plate, or use a vacuum desiccation chamber. Be careful. The substance is highly flammable!

The Shoe Method is much safer.

Start with five grams of kief. You will also need a small piece of tape, parchment paper, and a pin.

  • Wrap kief tightly in parchment paper. Tape closed.

  • With the pin, punch a small hole through the package. This lets trapped air out. 

  • Place package inside the heel of a hard-soled, closed-toed shoe. 

  • As you walk, your weight will press the hash into a slab. This takes between fifteen and sixty minutes.

make cannabutter with weed stems

Cannabutter

As the name suggests, cannabutter is a product created by infusing butter with cannabis.

HerbieHeadshop.com offers this cannabutter recipe using weed stems. Have a coffee maker? That can work, too!

Preheat oven to 200 F. Grind stems. Lay ground-up stems on a cookie sheet. Bake for 40 minutes.

Melt butter at medium temperature. Add ten ounces of water and simmer. Add ground, toasted stems. Soak for three or four hours stirring every fifteen minutes. Add a half cup of water every hour. 

Set cheesecloth or a coffee filter over a heatproof container. Secure with string or elastic. Pour liquid slowly through the strainer. Bundle the edges of the strainer and squeeze tightly to extract all the cannabutter.

Place the container in the fridge. Let set. Collect the butter. Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.

There are many ways to use cannabutter in the kitchen. This is an easy recipe from Emily Kyle. You can use kief or weed stems to create cannabutter.

This cannabutter won’t be as potent as cannabutter made from bud or leaf. But, cannabutter made from stems is less likely to cause an overdose.

When it comes to making edibles with cannabutter, you are limited only by your imagination. 

Infused Liquor

Start with a bottle of strong clear vodka. For every ounce of liquid, grind one and a half grams of stems. Place the stems or kief in the bottle and leave it in a dark room for three weeks. Stir contents occasionally.

Strain the stems from the liquid. Serve the infused liquor as you would regular vodka. Blend with your favorite mix or fruit juice. This makes an awesome bloody mary, martini, or margarita.
