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 Starting Material Before Washing Bubble Hash

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

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.

How To Press Bottle Tech

Bottle Tech refers to a specific style of filling rosin bags and loading them into the press, so that the material takes the shape of a vertical cylinder rather than a flat rectangle. With a fundamental change in the shape of source material, bottle Tech gives the extractor greater control over bag pressure for more consistent results. Why use Bottle Tech to Press Rosin? If you’re pressing flower, especially if you work with the same cultivars on a regular basis, Bottle Tech allows you to more accurately dial-in your pressure application for repeatable and predictable results.
