It’s also safe to enjoy as no chemicals are used during the extraction process. It’s a great use of trim, though making dry-ice hash is easier and produces greater yields. The cornerstone of making bubble hash is mixing up your weed, water and ice. All three of these methods produce the same quality of bubble hash.
It’s the efficiency and amount of work that varies. (Old School) Manual Method: Using a spoon or rubber spatula and hand mixing for a while. Pros: Cheapest method, needs the least amount of tools. Cons: The most physical work and the least efficient. Mixer Method: Using a hand mixer with beaters attached, or a hand drill with a paint-mixer or similar tool attached. This method is much easier then hand-mixing and more efficient. Cons: Still need a drill or mixer plus a good mixing attachment that’s also long. A hash-washing machine (mini washing machines) Pros: Easiest method since you don’t have to mix.
Also, the most efficient method since all the material is constantly mixed while the machine is on. Cons: High initial cost since you have to buy the machine ( Here’s a short video of a washer in action. Two 7lb bags of ice Your dried cannabis (bud or trim) Bubble Hash Bags with 25-micron drying sheet (preferably all-mesh) Tip: Get a pack of 25-micron drying screens and dry each of your various grades of hash on their own sheet. This makes it way easier to dry and keep your grades separated. 2 clean buckets A metal tablespoon A sink area with a sprayer. A clean mister or a simple cup can be used if you don’t have a sprayer A way to mix the hash-water Manual: A long cooking spoon or a rubber spatula, some patience and calories to burn. Hand Mixer or Drill: A hand-mixer (like you would use for cakes) with beaters attached, or a hand drill with a paint mixer attached A hash-washer. These are usually sold as “mini washing machines” and they’re pretty good for that, too. How to Make Bubble Hash with a Hash Washer (The Easier Method) Set your 25-micron drying screen(s) on some paper towels and set them aside. Your washing machine came with a 220-micron bag, which you will layer with ice and cannabis. Put ⅓ of the bag of ice in the bottom of the bag, add your cannabis, and then another ⅓ of the bag of ice on top. Close the 220-micron bag and use the string attached to the bag to tie the zipper closed. If your machine didn’t come with a 220-micron bag that fits inside, just layer the ice and cannabis directly in the machine. Double check to make sure the bag inside is completely closed and tied before the next step or all your cannabis will come out of the bag into the washer. There should be a mark on the side of the washing machine that tells you how high the water should go. When we’ve filled it to the high mark we’ve had it leak out the back once everything starts mixing and churning. Even at the low mark, there can still be too much water after a bit of the ice melts. Set the machine to mix up your cannabis for 12 minutes and wait for the cycle to complete. Let the machine sit for another 10 minutes afterward to let the trichomes sink to the bottom.
Grab the unused bucket and stack the remainder of your bubble bags inside. First insert the bag with the lowest number (25-micron), then put the next biggest (73-micron) bag inside that, and finally put the (160-micron) bag inside that. If you didn’t use a 220 bag in the washer, or if plant material somehow escaped your bag while in the washer, you’ll need to lastly insert a 220 bag, which will filter away the larger plant matter. Note: Some bubble bag sets come with 5 bags and some come with 8. We use the 5 bag set, but we don’t use all of the bags that come with it. All bag sets come with 25, 73, 160 and 220, but the size of the other bags differ depending on who’s selling them. Some sets come with a 45, 90, or 120 and many growers like to use those bags. However, we only use the 25 (good stuff) 73 (the best stuff), 160 (not bad stuff), and 220 (cleans out the junk) bags.
The most important thing is to start with 25 and make sure each bag after that goes up in number. Pour the weedy water from your washer into the bucket containing your stacked bubble bags.
