How To Rinse & Clean Your Indoor & Outdoor Grow Buds For Contaminants Before Hash Washing

Over the course of a grow cycle, whether indoors or outdoors, tiny pieces of debris make their way onto the sticky trichomes of your cannabis flowers. It seems like no matter how hard you try to keep a clean environment, resin grabs and holds contaminants like flies to honey. While it’s much easier to control an indoor environment than the outdoors, some unwanted particles of various compositions undoubtedly dirty your precious resin in any type of grow.

How Does A Closed Loop Recirculation System Work?

As the name suggests, a closed loop recirculation system is a configuration that lets hash makers recirculate and thereby reuse water during the Ice Water Extraction process of collecting loose resin, or bubble hash. The traditional approach to Ice Water Extraction does not involve recirculating water through the system, rather extractors dispose of the drainage water after it’s mixed with starting material and passes through the sieving bags.

Hash Contaminants & How To Keep Trichomes Clean

Sometimes, contamination in the form of bugs, dust, sand, and even pesticides can get caught in the sieving bags along with the resin. And contamination in the bags can easily lead to contamination in the final product. Therefore, the goal is to minimize all contaminants on the starting material as much as possible before starting the Ice Water Extraction process. While there will always be some level of contamination, even if it’s extremely limited, there are things that hash makers can do to keep trichomes clean during the growth, harvesting, and preparation phases leading up to extraction.

Top 5 Tips For Getting Started With Your Harvest Right Freeze Dryer

Harvest Right Freeze Dryer is a brand of home freeze-drying equipment designed to preserve food and other perishable items by removing moisture through a process called freeze-drying. Freeze-drying involves freezing the item and then gradually reducing the surrounding pressure to allow frozen water to sublimate directly from a solid to a gas, without passing through the liquid phase. While these freeze dryers are designed to preserve food, they are also perfect for drying loose resin.

Top 5 Key Benefits from Cold Water Recirculation for Ice Water Extraction

Continuous recirculation for ice water extraction refers to the process of continually moving the ice-cold water through the cannabis material while agitating it. Instead of agitating the mixture for a fixed duration and then disposing of the water, continuous recirculation involves maintaining a steady flow of water through the extraction vessel, then through the sieving bags and into a collection vessel, throughout the agitation process.

Boiling Points of Common Terpenes in Cannabis

Terpenes are a large and diverse class of organic compounds that are naturally produced by various plants, including cannabis, pine trees, citrus fruits, and many others. They are responsible for the distinctive aromas and flavors found in these plants. Terpenes are responsible for that dank, musky, gassy, and fruity funk that screams at us through the cracked lid of a mason jar. They are what we know and love about cannabis, and we can recognize them from a mile away.

How To Make Hash Wraps

A hash wrap is a thin, flat sheet of hash that resembles a rolling paper. In fact, hash wraps are made to replace traditional rolling papers. Instead of rolling your flower using a hemp or other plant-based fiber, why not use hash instead? Hash wraps will take your joints or cannagars to the next level! Not only are hash wraps fun to make, and also gratifying (if not a bit tricky at first) to roll with, the smoke they deliver puts regular rolling papers to shame.

How To Make A Bubble Wash Bag Cleaning Station

Bubble wash bags are the main tools hash makers use for sieving cannabis trichomes in bubble hash production. After agitating trichome-rich cannabis material together with ice water, hash makers run the mixture through a series of nylon bubble wash bags, consisting of various sizes of filtering screens. Each bubble wash bag collects a different grade of resin, allowing extractors to separate the best from the rest.

How To Properly Package & Store Fresh Frozen Cannabis For Future Processing

Fresh frozen is a means of preserving the terpenes and cannabinoids in cannabis by freezing the flowers immediately after harvest. Freezing the resin slows the breakdown of these therapeutic compounds produced within the trichomes of the flowers. This breakdown is a natural process that occurs at a faster rate while drying and curing. But with fresh frozen, there is no drying or curing involved. Fresh frozen cannabis is premium source material for making concentrates like bubble hash and live resin

What is Grafting & How To Do It Properly

Grafting is a technique used in plant cultivation to join two plants together so that they grow as one. The upper part of the plant, called the scion, is joined to the root system of the lower plant, called the rootstock. The scion provides the predominant characteristics of the desired crop, while the rootstock provides the root system and support. A common practice in commercial agriculture, grafting is used to produce fruit trees and ornamental plants with desired characteristics. It is also used by home gardeners to produce unique and interesting plants
