How Many Times Can I Wash Cannabis for Bubble Hash?

Cannabis material requires multiple rounds of washing and filtering to fully realize its potential during the ice water extraction process. Rarely will cannabis dump all it’s resin glands in just the first wash. 5-10 rounds of washing is not uncommon to fully process a single batch of material, and even then it’s possible that some medicine is left behind. So how many times can you really wash a single batch of material for bubble hash?

How to Decarb Cannabis

Decarbing cannabis involves the process of decarboxylation, which is a naturally occurring chemical reaction made possible with heat over time. Decarboxylation impacts cannabis by converting its beneficial compounds from their acidic form into a non-acidic form (e.g. from THC-A to THC). This transformation unlocks the full extent of the cannabinoids’ therapeutic value, most especially in regards to psychoactivity. Decarbing cannabis lets us enjoy the effects we most fondly associate with cannabis consumption.

Top 3 Reasons Why Solventless Is Superior

Hash heads often take it for granted that solventless cannabis extracts are superior to other forms of concentrates. We know that solventless extracts command a higher price point on dispensary shelves, and that eyes light up with the mention of live hash rosin. But why exactly do we consider solventless cannabis products to be superior? Defining Solventless Solventless extracts are cannabis concentrates made without the use of chemical solvents, such as butane and ethanol alcohol.

The History of Bubble Hash

The method of using cold water to extract trichome heads is still a relatively recent innovation, especially if you consider that hash in one form or another is an ancient cannabis concentrate. Neolithic humans were likely the first to discover cannabis concentrates in the form of hand-rubbed hash, or Charas, as it’s been called in the modern era. While picking through mature cannabis flowers for edible seeds, the sticky resin would have gathered onto the fingertips of these early foragers.

Will Joe Biden Legalize Cannabis?

There's no doubt that public sentiment around cannabis has changed rapidly in the last several years. The US federal government’s favor of legality seemed like a pipe dream just a couple of decades ago, but now with the rising tide of cultural support, it seems inevitable. And it's likely not going to take long at this point - we've crossed the Rubicon and there's no turning back. The War on Drugs was a complete sham, and any lingering belief that the war was successful in saving the public from the tragedy of drug abuse is negated by the domination of the opioid crisis, which took root and completely devastated large swaths of our society.

Best Ways To Store Cannabis Material for Extraction

The cannabis plant requires months of growth and development to produce mature trichome heads worthy of extraction. The most successful growers take cues from the plants themselves, and wait until the resin glands reach the ripeness required to produce powerful medicine. And nature doesn’t hurry. Neither should solventless extractors. Once the cannabis flowers are harvested, they require time, and in some cases additional processing, to be ready for solventless extraction. How the cannabis is stored prior to processing can make or break the success of the extraction and determine the quality of the final product.

Hydraulic vs Pneumatic Rosin Presses

Hydraulic Rosin Presses and Pneumatic Rosin Presses are both common in rosin extraction, and equally capable of producing premium quality rosin. But what sets them apart, and how do they actually work? Both hydraulic and pneumatic presses operate on the same basic principles. Pressure is generated within the press itself, and applied as force through a driving ram into the rosin plates. In the squeezing together of the rosin plates, pressure is generated within the cannabis source material. This pressure combines with heat from the plates to create the outflow of rosin, the prize of our endeavors.

What Is Rosin Sauce?

In the broad world of cannabis concentrates, the term “Sauce” generally refers to a type of extract that’s created using a closed-loop system along with the solvent BHO (butane). Sauce has a sticky, runny consistency that’s characterized by both crystal-like clumps and liquid golden goodness. One look at a gooey glob of sauce and you’ll see by the appearance where it gets its name. These alternate consistencies are the result of the separation of the major cannabinoids and terpenes present in high amounts in quality cannabis material. While BHO is effective at isolating and separating these various components

Rosin Press Time Guide

Time is one of the main variables to consider when making the most of your rosin extractions. A couple of minutes is all that’s needed to fully extract rosin from cannabis source material, but even a 30 second swing can make a difference. Dialing in your extraction time depending on your specific preference is the only way to get optimal results. Understanding how time impacts rosin quality and yield can help you use these time variances to your advantage. The time of rosin extraction is measured from the start of pressure application between heated rosin press plates, after preheating

Guide To Different Rosin Consistencies

Rosin is a versatile and adaptive cannabis concentrate, capable of taking on different forms and consistencies depending on its environment and the conditions under which it was extracted. Some rosin looks clear, shiny, and homogenous like sap or syrup. Some rosin appears creamy and whipped like a light golden budder. You’ll even see rosin that looks chunky, wet, and greasy, seeming to float in a pool of its own liquid terpenes. While consistency and texture of rosin is mostly cosmetic, it does help to tell a story

The Ultimate Guide To Dry Sift

Dry Sift Hash is one of the simplest forms of hash to create. It requires minimal equipment and processing input, yet it has the potential to stand beside Bubble Hash as a quality solventless source material for rosin. But just because making Dry Sift Hash is simple, that doesn’t mean it’s necessarily easy. Especially if superior quality is your aim. Sifting dried and cured cannabis material allows us to separate and isolate trichome heads from their stalks

Rosin Press Temperature Guide

Heat is one of the key ingredients that makes pressing rosin possible. While pressure is needed to amplify the flow of rosin between heated rosin plates, it’s the heat generated between your rosin plates that allow cannabis trichomes to liquefy in a way that we can isolate them for collection. An understanding of ideal temperature ranges, and the ability to control the temperature within those ranges during extraction, are must-haves in the extractor’s toolkit. The right amount of heat needed to press quality rosin
