I mean how do the manufacuters if thats what you want to call it, make say 1 or 2lbs into one semi small "brick" of weed, I just dont get how they compact all of that bud into a brick

some sort of press or a hydrolic press?, or maybe they just take a whole bunch of weed and stuff it into like a suitcase or something and jump on it and stuff/

My guess is that they probably just wrap it up in shrink wrap, and maybe all the handling or whatever sort of compresses it down into a denser brick. Maybe. I've never seen a brick in person so IDK.

if they used a press wouldnt all the bud fall out, i wonder if they use like a resin of some sort and that keeps it all together and pack it

At any rate I doubt it's very high tech, we're talking about a bunch of field laborers packaging and shipping this stuff, not exactly a factory with presses and shit. Or maybe they do, but my guess is they don't.

i dont know if it works like this but my friends dad has this machine at his factory that takes anything and compresses it that super wraps it in saran wrap plastic. Its pretty awesome to play with since you can wrap anything with it. I have no clue if its the same with weed though

Wow guys I thought this was common sense. Its just a machine that saran wraps it really tight. Basically what the guy above me said.

anyone else wanna pull the bullshit card here?

it's either that or you've got some serious cajones to stuff a pound of "sticky brickweed" under your shirt.

but more power to you if you actually did that

they use the same old presses from years ago I'm sure

not all that hard to place a sheet of waxpaper or some crap on the bottom of a big old metal hand turned press then another on top with a wood box around the sides to hold it all in

it's usually suncured as well which sort of decomps it together a bit to stew in it's own nasty mexi schwagg juices lol

edit - ipack I think you'd have a better chance believing he got a double enema before cramming condom after condom of pointy pokey schwagg up his ass till he managed the whole poundlol bottoms up

idk if ur talkin bout the swwaggy brick weed, or just a brick of weed....idk about the mexican nasty brick weed thats like $20 a zip, but ive had some kryppy from FL a pound to be exact, and it came in a brick form, my friend bought a pound in regular bud form before it was compressed, he stuffed the pound in a shoebox (we had to drive all the way back to jerz :x) when we removed the pound it looked exactly like my brick, its def not a high tech process.

some people do vacuum pack it, but that wouldnt compress it, just make the air come outta the bag, ive had pound that were vacuumed and not bricked and vice versa

Wet the weed, wrap it all up as tightly as you can. Voila, a brick.

Wetting it? Wouldn't that induce mold after its all wrapped up?
