The Different Parts of Marijuana You Can Smoke

Marijuana is a plant that has been used for centuries for medical and recreational purposes. The marijuana plant contains many compounds, called cannabinoids, that have different effects on the human body. Of these cannabinoids, THC is the one that is most well known for causing the “high” associated with marijuana use. However, there are many other cannabinoids present in marijuana that have not yet been studied as extensively. In this article, we will discuss the different parts of the marijuana plant that can be smoked.

Flower Buds 

The flower buds are probably what you think of when you think about smoking weed—and for good reason! Flower buds are usually made up of tightly-packed trichomes and hairs, and they contain a high concentration of THC. Flower buds can be smoked rolled in paper or stuffed into a pipe or bong bowl. Some people even like to vape them with an electronic vaporizer designed specifically for use with cannabis flower buds. 

Shake/Trimmed Leaves 

Shake and trimmed leaves are other common forms of marijuana that can be smoked. These leaves contain a lower concentration of THC compared to flower buds but still provide users with a mild high when consumed. Shake and trim leaves are typically used for baking edibles or making cannabutter so they don’t produce much smoke when smoked on their own. However, they can be added to flower buds to create a more potent smoke if desired. 


The leaves of the cannabis plant are often discarded but they too can be smoked. However, because leaves contain lower concentrations of THC than flower buds, it is important to know how to smoke them correctly to get the most out of your experience. Leaves should be finely ground and then rolled into a joint or blunt; this will ensure that all of their cannabinoids are released during combustion. Alternatively, they can also be vaped using an electronic vaporizer designed specifically for use with cannabis leaves. 


Cannabis stems do not contain any THC but they do contain other compounds such as terpenes and flavonoids which may contribute to your overall experience when smoking cannabis. Stems should not be smoked alone as they produce an unpleasant taste when burned but can be added to joints or blunts along with flower buds or leaves for an extra kick! Alternatively, stems can also be brewed into teas or infusions if you prefer a milder experience without any smoke inhalation at all. 

Marijuana is composed of various parts that all have different levels and effects on THC when consumed through smoking it. Flower buds provide a high concentration of THC while leaves provide slightly less, making them better suited as fillers in joints or blunts than being consumed on their own; stems don’t contain any THC but still offer beneficial effects either through smoking them or brewing them into teas and infusions. For those who want to maximize their weed experience, understanding how each part contributes differently will help ensure that you get the most out of your session!
