What to do with extra flower

Started growing about 8 months ago and have successfully grown and harvested three plants, all from a single order of 5 seeds (all the same strain). At this point I’ve got more flower than I know what to do with, or can even consume myself. I’ve given some away to friends, I leave some as a tip at my favorite carry-out restaurant, left some for the mailman and garbage man! Still, I know I can’t use all that’s left, and I’m reluctant to start a new grow if it means I’m just creating a stockpile. But at the same time, I’d like to try growing a different strain.

I’m in Michigan where growing for personal use is legal, and recreational is legal, too. Still, I prefer to keep things on the down-low due to the nature of my job.

What does everyone do with their weed surplus?


Not many of us have it for long, but I like to do extraction.


I grow far more than I can use myself too. I give mine to family. Making hash is another good option.


I have experimented with making tinctures. My first was a disaster, I think because I used vodka. My second attempt I used Everclear and it worked like a dream. Still, the Everclear burns if you hold it in your mouth too long, so I usually have to mix it with water, tea, etc.


I sit my ethanol extractions out to evaporate all of the alcohol away. You’re left with nearly pure cannabinoids.

You can send it down south here for “experimental studies” it will help our “research”


Take a run to your local grow shop and find out if there is any medical patients in need.
