Every Type of Quartz Dab Nail & How To Use Them

A dab nail is used to vaporize cannabis extracts, also known as "dabs," in a dab rig. The best nails are typically made of quartz, which is heated to a high temperature using a torch. The nail, sometimes called a bowl or “banger”, slides into the stem of a dab rig and can be interchanged for alternative types of nails. This means that a single dab rig can deliver different dabbing experiences based on the type of nail that’s used with it.

No Ice Tech: The Future of Solventless

Ice water extraction is the art of removing trichomes from the cannabis flowers on which they grow using only cold water and a set of nylon sieves called bubble wash bags. Trichomes are tiny appendages that contain high concentrations of therapeutic compounds like cannabinoids and terpenes that cannabis is known for. The heads of these trichomes are the best of the best, and the ultimate prize of solventless extractors and hash makers. Cold water makes the trichomes brittle enough to cleanly break free from the cannabis material, while also remaining in-tact as effective carriers of the valuable oil contained inside.

How To Calculate THC Content in Homemade Edibles and Tinctures

Homemade edibles offer an effective way to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of the cannabis plant. Eating cannabis provides an alternative to smoking or dabbing, and can be an even more reliable way to medicate. However, if you don’t know the cannabinoid content of your edibles or tinctures, it can be difficult to anticipate and control each dose, making the experience less reliable (and potentially less enjoyable!). So how can you calculate the THC content in homemade edibles and tinctures?

What Is Living Soil?

Living soil is a growing medium that’s rich with organic matter, earth minerals, and other compounds that create a perfect ecosystem for microscopic life. Living soil is teeming with microbes which can be incredibly beneficial to growing cannabis. Living soil allows cannabis roots to absorb all the nutrients that the plant requires in order to not only thrive, but to produce the highest quality resin. Living soil isn’t just any old “dirt”. It’s characterized by rich biodiversity and microbial activity.

What's the Difference: Home vs. Pharmaceutical Harvest Right Freeze Dryers & What We Recommend For Drying Bubble Hash

Freeze drying utilizes the process of sublimation to remove moisture from wet objects. Most commonly used for drying and preserving food, freeze dryers also work great for drying loose resin, or bubble hash. While it’s possible to allow wet hash to air dry loose resin through the process of evaporation, sublimation inside a freeze dryer speeds up the process, reducing oxidation and preserving more terpenes.

How To Make Tincture Using Bubble Hash or Rosin

Tinctures offer an alternative way to ingest cannabis without smoking or vaping. Dabbing is the most popular way to enjoy rosin, while smoking is common for high-quality bubble hash. But both bubble hash and rosin can also make great sources for creating potent tinctures. Tinctures themselves have something in common with our favorite solventless cannabis products: they’re straightforward to make with minimal equipment right from home. What Is a Tincture?

How to Use a Harvest Right Freeze Dryer to Make Bubble Hash (& Recommended Shelf Temp / Freeze Times)

Freeze drying is the ideal way to dry bubble hash. Loose resin that’s collected using ice water extraction comes out wet. If it’s not properly dried, it can quickly and easily get moldy. While it’s definitely possible to air dry bubble hash, and create a premium hash while doing so, there are some downsides to air drying. Air drying takes several days, and requires lots of space to spread the trichomes in a thin layer. Air drying also allows oxidation to occur

Hash Wash Labeling: First vs Second Wash and Microns Collected

Hash makers collect loose resin multiple times, and from multiple wash bags, throughout the course of washing a single batch of cannabis material. The loose resin, or bubble hash, is gathered throughout the process in increments rather than collected in aggregate at the very end. This allows hash makers to differentiate between resin collected from the first wash all the way to the last wash, and from each individual sieving bag. The two primary phases of washing hash are mixing/agitation, and sieving.

Gravity Drainage vs Hash Pump for Washing Bubble Hash

A hash pump is a specialized pump that moves trichome-infused water from one vessel to another during the ice water extraction. Hash pumps automate the movement of water from the mixing vessel into the collection vessel, which otherwise needs to happen with the force of gravity. In labs with certain constraints that make using gravity suboptimal, hash pumps are a great alternative to moving water efficiently. And most importantly, in a way that doesn’t damage trichomes in the process.

Breeding to Collect Trichomes

The term “Hash plant” has been around for decades. Most notably the term showed up in the Seed Bank Catalogue in the 1980’s and 90’s as a plant that was selected for its hash-like flavor. In this article I will be referencing the term “Hash plant” as a plant that was selected because of the overall quality and yield of the hash that was derived from the sieving process and not that the plant's chemical profile tastes like hash in flower form. With more people growing and selectively crossing plants, we are starting to see some very unique expressions coming out of some of these contemporary cannabis lines.

How To Set Up a Water Drainage System for Washing Bubble Hash

Solventless extractors use lots of water for washing bubble hash, the process of mixing together ice water and cannabis to isolate trichome heads for collection. Water is the key factor that makes it all possible. A drainage system for washing bubble hash controls the flow of runoff water that’s used in ice water extraction. Water plays a part in both mixing and rinsing, so lots of clean, cold water is required. Once water comes into contact with the cannabis material
