The Marijuana that is used to make bubble hash can be either dried or freshly cut green
You will need as much Marijuana scrap, cuttings or buds as possible.
This example uses about two pounds of freshly cut trimmings and popcorn buds.
1. One set of Bubble Bags -- either set is fine.
( When buying your bubble bags keep that in mind..
the 5 bag sets make the same exact hash as the 8 bag sets only cheaper..
you really only need the last two bags. )
2. Two buckets and a pouring cup
3. Plenty of ICE
4. Large spoon or stirring device
5. A pressing screen
Get everything together..
Order your bubble bags from smallest to largest...
Put them in the buckets with the smallest micron bag going in first. The Largest Micron bag is your "working" bag and it goes in last.
TIP::: Be sure to fold the first two bags over the lip of the bucket... This protects your finished product from any contaminants that may get in.. e.g. hair, dirt, leaves and scrap.
Now get all of your scrap Marijuana together
Put it all in the "working" bag and add water
( just enough to cover the Marijuana - leave some room for the ice )
Add your ice or in this case snow from outside....
Now stir it... mash it... squish it... and work with it for awhile...
Use a big spoon or something big enough to stir it all in... hands work well but the water is too cold to use your hands for the entire process. Stir stir stir....
You could use an electric mixer or a drill with a paint mixer on the end to mix it all up.
( Basically what you are doing is rubbing the leaves against one another to knock off the frozen trichomes and get them into the bottom bag -- so do this for awhile... )
When you think you have done it long enough to get some product in the bottom bag... stop and check the bottom bag... slowly pull the top bags out all together leaving everything intact. Put the top bags on top of your second bucket.. there are still trichomes in the water that is coming out of the bottom so save all of that.
What you will see is a big gooey pile of pure trichomes. DO NOT TOUCH THIS STUFF
This step takes practice... you will need to scrape all of that out with a metal spoon... and use the small cup to pour water around the pile... this will make it all collect in the center. It may take a few times to get it all.
Now that you have your spoons of trichomes you will need to put all of that on your pressing screen.http://forum.grasscity.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=335114&stc=1&d=1264022951
Fold it up and press it between some paper towels... press it hard to get all the water out.
Now unfold your pressing screen and you have hash...
DO NOT HANDLE THIS CHUNK..
The heat of your hands will make it sticky and you will have a hard time getting it together again. Keep it cold... put it in the freezer until you are finished sifting your Marijuana.
You will want to repeat this process until you check the bottom bag and it is empty... each time you do this you will get a little more... so keep repeating these steps, until you are satisfied.
Rolling this and pressing it is a whole other tutorial...
But for a quick tip.... keep your hands wet with cold water... keep the chunk somewhat cold and knead it into a ball. Get a large piece of glass to roll it around on... knead it and knead it until it changes color and gets easier to handle.. KEEP YOUR HANDS WET WITH COLD WATER is the best tip I can give you....
The finished product after repeating the process about 5 times and rolling it around for awhile.....http://forum.grasscity.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=334963&stc=1&d=1263990266
The look on your buddies faces when you whip this hash ball out and say "Let's Smoke" - priceless...
