How To Properly Lollipop Your Cannabis Plants for Maximum Resin Yield

Lollipopping is a specific way to trim cannabis plants, allowing the plant to focus on the winners and avoid diverting valuable energy to the underperformers. What are the winners and underperformers? Winners get all the best light from indoor lights, while underperformers literally sit underneath these top bud sites and get less light. Bud sites toward the top of the plant are the winners, which receive the most direct light.

How to Make Healing Topicals From Rosin Chips

Rosin chips refers to the hash or cannabis flower that remains inside the press bags after extraction. These flattened pucks of squished hash or buds still contain therapeutic compounds, and although there’s less medicine to extract than the first time around, they are worth reusing. Not for pressing, but for another type of extraction: making healing topicals. With base oil and some heat, we can extract cannabinoids from these rosin chips to create a canna-rich salve.

How to Test The Quality of Your Hash

Ice water extraction is the gold standard for making the best hash, a process that lets hash makers collect the trichome heads of the cannabis plant and leave all other plant material behind. Anything besides resin heads is considered contamination, which would include trichome stalks, minuscule plant particles, chlorophyll, and foreign objects like dirt or insect parts. Trichome heads contain the highest concentrations of the most desirable therapeutic compounds that cannabis produces, which is what makes them so very valuable to solventless extraction artists.

How To Properly Prepare Your Whole Plant Fresh Frozen Material for Washing Hash

Whole Plant Fresh Frozen, or WPFF, refers to cannabis plant material that’s covered in resin and frozen immediately after harvesting, and in preparation for ice water extraction. Hash makers wash this WPFF to collect loose resin and make it into pressed hash (Temple Balls) or rosin. Whole Plant Fresh Frozen is regarded as the premium starting material for making hash. Freezing the cannabis immediately after harvest minimizes terpene loss and helps preserve the freshness that’s found in the living cannabis plant.

How To Modify a 20-Gallon Washing Machine for Washing Bubble Hash

20-gallon Bubble Magic Washing Machines are ideal for hash makers who need more than a mini washer, but don’t quite have the budget for a full commercial-grade set up. A 20-gallon machine is a perfect in-between for labs that aim for greater solventless output before investing in a large-scale build. Although the Bubble Magic 20-gallon is technically ready to use right out of the box, there is one modification specifically that can make a world of a difference: changing out the drainage hose.

How To Create An Integrated Water Collection Vessel

Washing hash involves a lot of water. From the mixing vessel, through the sieving bags, and then out for drainage, water flows throughout the process. A slapdash setup can lead to water sloshing around everywhere, potentially ending up in the floor creating operational hazards and an overall sloppy environment. This is not what we want in the lab.

How To Dab Bubble Hash the Right Way

Most solventless extraction artists use loose resin, or bubble hash, to make rosin for dabbing. Although it’s not as common to dab bubble hash as it is to dab rosin, the finest quality hash is actually great for dabbing. If you know the right techniques, loose resin can actually rival rosin dabs. Can’t you just dab bubble hash the same way you dab rosin? Yes you can, but there are certain ways you can improve bubble hash dabs.

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 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.

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

How To Choose an LED Grow Light

Proper lighting is essential for growing healthy, robust, and heavy-yielding cannabis crops indoors. While HPS lights have dominated the indoor cultivation space for decades, LED lights advanced in leaps and bounds over the last couple years. Now, LED cannabis grow lights are the preferred choice among many, if not by now the majority, of both home hobbyists and commercial cultivators. So what are LED lights, and how are they different from HPS grow lights? LED grow lights are composed of multiple light-emitting diodes

How To Test Starter Material Before Washing Bubble Hash

✅ Updated 10/19/21 The flowers we want for ice water extraction produce high concentrations of both cannabinoids and terpenes within an abundance of terpenes covering the buds. Not all cannabis cultivars make good candidates for hash production. Strains that produce lots of terpenes and high levels of THC don’t always have the characteristics to make great starter material for ice water extraction.

Tips for Cleaning Your Dab Rig and Banger

✅ Updated 1/18/22 Regular use of your rig leaves residual oil buildup, it’s all part of the game. Taking the perfect dab is only possible when you’re using a clean rig and banger, so staying on top of regular maintenance and cleaning pays dividends. Even premium rosin and bubble hash leaves a little something extra behind after vaporizing in the bowl. Much of this is the waxy encasing of the trichome heads, which are resilient to the temperatures used for dabbing. They remain in a puddle or thin oil smear along the bottom and sides of the bowl

How To Press Bubble Hash Rosin Starter Guide

✅ Updated 6/29/21 Bubble hash rosin is rosin that’s extracted from bubble hash. Bubble hash is a form of solventless cannabis concentrate, composed of trichome heads that are separated from the rest of the plant using ice cold water and agitation. In its earliest days, rosin was created by squishing dried and cured whole cannabis flowers between heated plates, like a hair straightener or a t-shirt press. Flower rosin is still incredibly popular today! However, as solventless techniques quickly advanced, more efficient and effective equipment was developed and different cannabis material was being pressed. Then, people started experimenting with pressing bubble hash

How to Rehydrate Dry Cannabis Flower For Rosin Pressing

✅ Updated 6/10/21 Effectively extracting quality rosin from cannabis flowers isn’t possible without the correct moisture content and humidity levels. Flowers grown in an ideal environment from good genetics can’t fully transform into exceptional rosin if they’re too dry during extraction. Excessive dryness in cannabis flowers causes decreased rosin yields, as bone-dry bud reabsorbs much of the rosin as it flows through the rosin bag. This reabsorption rate is significantly lower in flowers that contain the right amount of moisture, giving every extractor good reason to maintain correct moisture in their starting material.

How To Take Notes To Improve Your Rosin Production

The mechanics of pressing rosin are straightforward. With the application of heat and pressure, solventless extractors release the oils contained within cannabis to create a pure and potent form of concentrate known as rosin. Although the overall approach to pressing rosin is simple, many variables exist in the actual process, any of which can have a direct impact on the quantity and quality of your rosin yield. Over time and with experience, extractors gain a better understanding of how to control variables such as time, temperature, and pressure when pressing rosin.
