- Ice and water
- Bubble Bags
- Pressing Screens (or use the smallest bag turned inside out)
How To Make Bubble Hash: The Procedure
Put your bubble bags into your bucket from the smallest to the largest micron size. Each goes inside the other.
Once that’s done, the time has come to put water in the pail. The best practice is to have your water and ice together in a different basin or pail because this will get keep the water cool enough. You’re aiming for 4 degrees Celsius or lower.
Now it’s time to add the cannabis. This is the most critical piece of the procedure. Any plant material containing glandular trichomes will work. Trimmings and stems can yield some resin!
Note that while including the leaf, don’t place any in until the point that you have raised your water over the level of the screen. This will shield contaminant from entering your initial couple of bags.
Mix for about 15 minutes and then let the mixture rest for 15 minutes as well. This will allow everything to settle.
After this step, pull the first bag out taking care to keep trimmings from falling back into the mix.
Time for more resting so the mix can settle again. During this time, the trichomes will sink again so they’re ready for the next strain.You have some options when it comes to the waste material left over. You can dump the substance into your compost or save it to process again. It’s possible to extract more trichomes if you run it a second time, but this is up to you.
Wash, Rinse, Repeat
Be sure to wash your bag with cold water and lay it flat to dry. Drying it properly will prevent rot and mold.
You basically repeat this process with each bag and each has a finer mesh so it strains a bit better than the one before it. If you notice sludge on the bottom of your bags as you pull them, scrape that substance back into your pail so you can strain it through the next bag. If you need help, stretch it over a bowl and scrape with a spoon. Remember to rinse your spoon in the bucket as well in case any trichomes or resin is stuck to it.
