Cannabis Nutrient Selection and Its Relation To Resin Color, Quality, and Clarity
Nutrient selection plays a large roll in the health of your plants, whether you choose organic or synthetic, it can affect the quality, color and clarity of the trichomes. Carefully testing and selecting the right products for your individual fertilizer requirements is crucial for a positive outcome when harvest time rolls around, Cannabis plants are comprised of the environmental and nutritional factors they are exposed to throughout their lifetime. As the roots absorb nutrients up into the plantRead more
Tips To Minimize Filter Bag Slippage While Pressing Rosin
Rosin bag slippage is an issue that most extractors have had to deal with at one time or another. As press plates apply pressure to the starting material during extraction, the rosin bag should remain perfectly fixed in position. But sometimes, as pressure increases and rosin begins to flow, the rosin bag and material drift out of place. This slippage can create various problems like reduced yields and torn parchment paper.Read more
What Is Zombie Bubble Hash?
Somewhere between the living and the dead, the world of zombies exists in an enigmatic limbo. While much less dramatic than the creatures popularized in contemporary culture, zombie bubble hash is definitely worth the attention of discerning cannabis connoisseurs. But how can hash be a little bit living and a little bit dead? Bubble hash, or ice water hash as it’s also called, is made with a solventless extraction method that involves mixing ice, water, and cannabis. Agitating cannabis and ice water together knocks trichomes free from the plant material on which they grow.Read more
What Is WPFF?
There are several ways to prepare cannabis material for ice water extraction, or washing bubble hash. Traditionally, hash makers hung cannabis upside down to fully dry, prior to extracting the resin. Drying cannabis flowers, and then subsequently curing in glass jars, is the same preparation for smoking them as well. But throughout this process, exposure to the open air (even inside an environmentally-controlled drying room) leads to terpene loss and oxidation. But there’s another way to prepare cannabis right after harvest, that can minimize oxidation and also preserve the abundance of terpenes locked inside the plant trichomes.Read more

What's The Problem with Using 2-Way Humidity Packs To Rehydrate Cannabis Flowers?
2-way humidity packs are thin pouches that contain water vapor, natural salts, and food-grade thickeners which help regulate humidity levels within airtight spaces. Traditionally used by cigar aficionados to preserve moisture levels inside humidors, 2-way humidity packs have been adopted by the cannabis industry to keep flowers at just the right humidity. Relative Humidity, or RH, is a measurement of moisture in the air (given as a percentage), and helps us aim for the right amount of moisture within cannabis flowers.Read more
How To Microplane Bubble Hash for Air Drying
Microplaning bubble hash is a way to break apart fresh, wet bubble hash for drying after Ice Water Extraction. Hash that’s just pulled from bubble wash bags is soaking wet, and in order to air dry properly, it needs to be prepared accordingly. Wet hash sticks together in globulous patties. Even if it’s spread into a thin, uniform layer to air dry, it will still trap moisture within. Moisture locked inside can’t evaporate by itself in the open air, and this invites mold growth before the hash gets a chance to fully dry.Read more
What Is Food Grade Bubble Hash?
Bubble Hash, or Ice Water Hash as it’s also known, is a type of solventless cannabis concentrate known for its purity and potency. Bubble hash is made through a process called Ice Water Extraction, a method utilizing only ice, water, and cannabis material to extract trichomes from cannabis. Extractors sieve the ice water and cannabis mixture through a series of mesh filters, called Bubble Wash Bags, in order to isolate and collect cannabis trichomes. These trichomes, also collectively referred to as “resin”, are the main object of interestRead more
