Bubble Hash has been around for decades, and has become a favourite among marijuana enthusiast. Discover what makes this concentrate so special.
While there are many different forms of cannabis emerging on the market today, bubble hash has been around for decades. Extract artists can make bubble hash in various ways, but the general process involves filtering and pressing the trichomes from a cannabis flower into a block or ball before it dries. This leaves you with an end product that is high-quality and potent.
In this blog post, we will explore everything you need to know about bubble hash, including what it is, how to make it, as well as its benefits and drawbacks, so you can decide if it's right for you!
The History of Bubble Hash
Bubble hash is a relatively modern cannabis extract that was first seen in the 1980s after ice water extraction. The earliest versions of bubble hash were produced using hand-rolled screen filters and buckets of ice water to wash trichomes off of dried flowers or buds. These were then pressed into block or ball form before they dried.
This labour-intensive process made bubble hash the most expensive and rare cannabis extract available at the time. Today, there are modern methods of producing bubble hash that perform this process more efficiently.
How is Bubble Hash Made?
The same way that kief is made, bubble hash involves filtering the trichomes from a cannabis flower. In a solventless manner.
The process begins when you collect your dried cannabis flowers into a container and shake it to loosen up the trichomes. You can then pour them through a silk screen or mesh strainer bag to filter out any larger pieces of plant matter before rinsing the flowers.
These screens have different sized holes(microns) that will determine how coarse or fine the resulting hash will be. It is important to use small enough screens so you won't accidentally filter out the trichomes.
The cold temperature of the ice water causes an emulsification process to occur, which separates the trichomes from your cannabis. The ice water will then float to the top of the container while the trichomes sink to the bottom. By using several screens with different-sized holes, you can create different consistencies and grades of bubble hash ranging from pure resin to a more powdery product known as kief.
How to Consume Bubble Hash?
Bubble Hash is a customer favourite here at CAMMP, and for a good reason. The versatility of this product allows you to use it in a diverse array of ways.
Light A Bowl
The most common way of consuming bubble hash is smoking it. To smoke your bubble hash, simply light up a bowl as you normally would and place a small chunk of the product inside.
Sprinkle It In a Joint
Bubble hash is also great for mixing in joints or blunts. You can easily crumble a small piece of bubble hash into your tobacco or cannabis flower without having to worry about it falling apart while you smoke.
While Bubble Hash is less pure than other extracts, it still has a high enough THC concentration to be vaporized. A small amount of bubble hash can also help mask the taste of cannabis flowers if you aren't particularly fond of its flavour.
This method is not as healthy as the others, but it's a classic that can't be overlooked. Stick a small piece of bubble hash to the lit end of a joint or cigarette, stick inside a bottle through a small hole, and let the smoke fill in a bottle cap or mason jar. Remove the cap, and inhale in the same way you would a bong hit.
The Effects of Bubble Hash
Compared to other extracts, bubble hash has a lower concentration of cannabinoids. However, since the THC is not as concentrated, it is still potent enough to offer you a powerful and long-lasting high.
If you are new to smoking cannabis extracts, we recommend starting with a tiny piece (1/2 gram) to ensure you don't experience overmedication. If you want to experience the full effects of bubble hash, we recommend smoking one gram or less at a time.
Things to Consider Before Buying
Before you decide to order bubble hash online, there are a few things you should consider.
Know your source.
Lab testing is the only way to know exactly what's in your product. You need to be sure that you're obtaining an honest and accurate representation of the product's contents.
Just because bubble hash is more readily available than other cannabis extracts doesn't mean there aren't scammers out there trying to get you hooked on sub-par products that won't give you what you're paying for. Do your research before buying. You can find trustworthy companies here at CAMMP.
