    Ok, so it's been a while since I've posted anything, so hello to everyone. This seemed like a good place to post this question.
    I am just at the point where I am about to harvest, and from what I'm looking at I am expecting a pretty decent yield. What I'd like to do is take maybe 1/4 - 1/3 of my material and use it to make hash. Most likely iso hash, as that seems to be easy, cheap and relatively non-labor intensive.
    So does anyone out there have a method of grinding up alot of bud quickly? I'm not talking about ground up like your gowing to roll a joint, just chunked up a little bit.
    Or does that even matter for making iso hash?
    Thank in advance everyone.

  2. Magic bullet
  3. hippies have been using coffee grinders forever, you'll get the hang of how long to hold it to get the texture you want
  4. You can buy a food processor. I suggest a new one cause i dont know what was in the old one and I dont want it smelling like bud anyway. You can grind ounces at a time. Good luck!
  5. A hungry hungry hippo?
  6. Use a grinder.
  7. Use your hands. If its ground up to fine it will be easier for waxes and chlorophyll to get saturated in the iso which will yield some less than desirable oil.
  8. Yeah, that's what I was worried about, and why I was saying just chunked up a little. Even though it's my first time making hash, I want it to be as high quality as possible, so I will def keep that in mind.
    I'm talking about almost 3/4 of a pound, dry (estimating.) I don't know what kind of grinder you have, but with mine I'd be doing this until the 4th of July lol
    I might try to food processor, those usually come pretty cheap and I already know how to use one lol.
  9. I have a 4 piece Sharpstone that collects mad pollen after just a small 8th, and a Cali Crusher pollen press that I can use to make hash after I've collected enough kief. (No ice water, no iso, no hassle)
  10. You can get about 1/4lb in a regular home blender pretty easy. Works pretty well. Just be careful if doing trim with large stems. There is a small chance you may burn out a brand new blender, my wife is still pissed about that one.
  11. Use a rock. A BIG rock. Like a fucking caveman. Or you could find a club-shaped stick. Just smash it. Be sure to say "UGGHH" and "OH OOOH" a ton. It ensures that the potency will remain stone(age)y.
    if im grinding it up for hash then i use a coffee grinder.  a few presses (do not hold the button down for long) and youll be good to go.  
    plus once you get the flowers out you can take a clean small paint brush and collect the kief on the sides.  
  13. dont get the grinder if your looking to make hash etc . just get a kief box , they sell those kief box extractors at headshops . if you want to do iso though , then buy one of those 20-30$ weed bullet grinders at headshops , they have like everything there lol.
  14. For QWISO I never chopped anything up. But I used only popcorn buds and sugar leaves.
    If you are using large buds, just throw 'em in the bathtub and hit 'em with the Weed Wacker. Let us know how it goes.
