The History of Hash

The history of hashish is shrouded in mystery, with its origins dating back to ancient civilizations in Central Asia. Wherever cannabis grew, it thrived and was utilized for various purposes. The relationship between cannabis and humans has been close-knit since recorded history began, with uses including textile production and medicinal applications. While the exact inception of hashish remains uncertain, historians concur that charas, the earliest form of hashish, emerged around 10,000 years ago. This resinous substance was meticulously collected from cannabis plants with bare hands and lots of patience. Hashishins still produce charas to this day.

Why Press Your Resin By Frenchy Cannoli

When I decided to approach the legal side of cannabis as a California registered patient a few years back, my first step was to educate myself on the legality of my decision before anything. I also wanted to know the history of the movement that gave me such an amazing gift as an expression of my reconnaissance, and respect. But most importantly, I was looking for the science, if any, behind everything I had experienced with local associations while traveling in producing countries

What Are Charas & How To Make Charas Like A Pro

Charas is the oldest form of cannabis concentrate - the original solventless. Not only is it the oldest, it’s the simplest to produce, requiring only the flowering cannabis plant and a pair of human hands. Making charas involves a very intimate experience with cannabis, in which the hash maker literally rubs fresh resin right from the trichomes onto their hands. The resin accumulates into a blackish layer across the palms and fingers, then peels off like a second skin.

How To Make Solventless Pectin Gummies

Pectin is a plant-based gelling agent, commonly used in jams, jellies, and fruit preserves. It’s similar to gelatin, but unlike gelatin, pectin is vegan and found naturally in just about every fruit and vegetable. Typically made from apples (apple pectin) or citrus peels (citrus pectin), pectin is a great choice as thickener and stabilizer for making solventless gummies. When heated with sugar and acid, pectin forms a kind of mesh that traps liquid and then sets as it cools.

All Mesh vs Canvas Bubble Bags: The Pros and Cons

Bubble bags are specialized filtration bags that hash makers use in the ice water extraction process for collecting loose resin from cannabis material. The process involves mixing together cannabis flowers and trichome-coated trim leaves with ice-cold water, then running this mixture through a series of bubble bags to catch the trichome heads and leave everything else behind. These trichome heads, also called loose resin, form the basis of solventless concentrates like bubble hash, temple balls, and rosin.

Advanced Dry Static Sifting 101

Rosin, bubble hash, and dry sift comprise the trifecta of solventless cannabis concentrates. Like its counterparts, dry sift delivers the unadulterated expression of what cannabis is all about: that sweet sweet resin. Packed inside the bulbous heads of sugar-like trichomes, this oily resin contains high concentrations of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, compounds which are responsible for the therapeutic value that people seek from cannabis. Dry sift is essentially just a concentration of the trichome heads, isolated and collected without the use of any solvents.

To preserve delicate terpenes, luscious texture, and powerhouse potency, lots of care and intention must go into the proper storage of hash and rosin. The goal of storing hash and rosin is to keep your concentrate as fresh and vibrant for as long as possible.

How To Process Hash Rosin Using The Centrifuge Technique

A centrifuge is a device that spins around an axis at high speeds in order to apply constant force on an object. This force, known as centrifugal force, is directed radially away from the axis of rotation, meaning that it moves outward from the center. Centrifuges, which are specialty pieces of equipment commonly used in scientific labs, work by spinning an object at high speeds within a container, causing fluids of different densities to separate out from the object. Less dense components are displaced and move to the center, while more dense components are spun to the outside

Flavorants and the Science of Terpenes in Cannabis

As our understanding of the cannabis plant has evolved, new science around terpenes is emerging. And with it, a new category of beneficial compounds comes to light. Terpenes are naturally occurring compounds found in a variety of plants, particularly conifers.

Solventless extractors go to great lengths to preserve terpenes throughout the entire extraction process, showcasing the full glory of the resin for the consumer.

How To Properly Use A Freeze Dryer For Hash 101

Freeze drying, also known as lyophilization, is a low temperature dehydration process that involves freezing the loose resin and lowering pressure, removing the ice by sublimation. Sublimation is better than regular dehydration or air drying, because it does a better job of preserving terpenes and reducing oxidation. While it’s possible to make excellent hash with the air drying method, freeze dryers offer indisputable advantages for extractors processing loose resin at scale.
