If you are viewing this thread, do not take this guide seriously. There are major errors. I will redo something accurate later, probably after my next grow finishes. Biggest mistake IMO was wet trimming. I will never do it again. With that said, there is some useful info in here. ------------------------------ This is how I harvest my fresh frozen material for concentrates. I am a concentrates guy and have lupus so I don't care to mess with smoking buds much. It is a blue moon / occasional thing for me. When I harvest I don't have the biggest trim job or drying work because I don't dry. I just bag up the buds and throw them in jars then they go overnight in the freezer. I don't care about trimming nice sugar leaves, they stay on. I rip the garbage leaves right off. You can rip off the sugar leaves / trimming / mediocre trimmings into its own pile if you like for a strict bubble run. I don't care for this though. I jar those buds up and freeze them overnight. The next day they are processed into fresh frozen bubble. I give one, maybe two runs maximum, no heavy agitation. Just a wooden spoon and I mix about 10 - 12 minutes by hand. After this is done and I collect the fire, I look at the buds after I recollect them. It is smart if you squeeze a good bit of water out when you recollect them. Of course I refreeze them. If they are anything worthwhile and have trichomes all over it still, I will make fresh frozen dry ice the next day. If they are weak, I will make a nice batch of cannabutter. With the dry ice, if you are lucky you may get some high quality melty sift in lower micron bags shaken lightly and a short time in the initial run. If you squeezed enough water out, froze it overnight, and put enough dry ice to keep the water frozen off the buds before agitating, you will have no issues. The buds will still break like glass. Be careful of getting too much water over the screen it is wise to do shaking it a seperate container before filtering through a bag. If you keep your stuff frozen you will not have this problem though. It is a good precaution however. The non-melty grades I end up collecting them and saving them for rosin hash bags which I then obviously squish into rosin. When it is terpy I use unbleached, unchlorinated parchment, press, freeze immediately, as soon as frozen, transfer to oil slick sheet paper / glass (more reserved for full melts). Very low grade material will just possibly be reserved for edibles or thrown out. The green waste garbage I just chuck out. The nice thing is if you do this bubble processing before you dry ice and everything else, you collect the fire melts, and you also wash the material from a lot of contaminants and water solubles. You also, of course, yield fresh frozen, extremely terpy highest quality material. Granted you did not blast your plants with poison during your grow. I am doing this process now and will post some pics as I go along, have a couple full melt shots for now, I'm busy with other things so it will take me a little time.
