Want to try making your own hash? You’ll need the proper supplies and a few simple steps to get started, but even with just the most basic equipment, you can produce some of the best hash you’ve ever tried! Follow along with this detailed guide on how to make hash and you’ll be enjoying your next batch in no time!

What Is Hash?

Hash is a type of cannabis concentrate that is made by separating the trichomes (the resin glands that contain the plant’s cannabinoids) from the rest of the plant matter. The result is a potent product that can be used in many different ways.

Hashish is made from the dried and cured flowers of the female cannabis plant. It usually has a dark brown or black color and a crumbly texture. The THC content of hashish can vary depending on the quality of the product, but it is typically higher than that of regular cannabis flowers. One study found that more than 50% of hashish samples had THC levels greater than 60%. 

Hash can be smoked as is with a joint or blunt, mixed with tobacco and smoked in a pipe or bong, mixed with marijuana flowers to create blunts or joints, vaporized, added to food such as cookies, or baked into traditional Lebanese desserts such as knafeh nayeh, eaten alone like any other edible such as brownies, or added to chocolate bars make for a delicious treat. 

One popular method is adding some ground-up hash over top of your weed when you’re rolling up a joint. Smoking dry sift hash gives you an instant high because it’s so concentrated! You might not want to do this every time you smoke though because it can take a lot out of your lungs. 

When smoking straight hash, it’s recommended to start off with just a pinch to see how much you need before packing in too much. Adding ground-up dry sift hash to joints creates the ultimate fat hit – not only will you get super stoned but also taste buds full of flavor! You’ll want to eat something after smoking though because it will likely leave your mouth feeling pretty dry afterward.

How Much Hash Should I Get Per Gram of Dry Herb?

The answer to this question really depends on how strong you want your hash to be. If you’re looking to make some potent hash, then you’ll want to get around 20% hash per gram of dry herb. 

However, if you’re just looking for something to add a little bit of extra kick to your joint, then 10% hash per gram should suffice. Keep in mind that these numbers are guidelines, and the actual amount will vary based on the quality of the plant material and the methods used. 

Generally speaking, however, you’ll want to go with about 15%. After calculating what percentage of hash you want per gram of dry herb, divide that number by 100 to find out how many grams of dried plant material you need (e.g., 0.15 x 100 = 15). That is the total amount of dried plant material that is needed in order to produce 1 gram of pure hash. 

Now, when it comes to actually make the hash itself, there are three main ways that can be done: (1) screen; (2) bubble bag; or (3) ice water extraction. In order to do a screen or bubble bag extraction, you will need enough plant material to fill up at least four large screens or two bubble bags. For an ice water extraction, all you’ll need is enough plants to fill up one regular mason jar.

How To Make Hash

There are a couple of different methods to make hash, and this particular method will result in hash oil.

Step 1 

Start with a high-quality cannabis strain. 

Step 2

Trim the leaves off of the buds, being careful not to damage the trichomes. 

Step 3

Dry the trim in a dehydrator or oven set to low heat until it is crumbly but still green. 

Step 4

Grind the dry trim using a coffee grinder or food processor until it is a fine powder. 

Step 5

Mix the powder with just enough water to make a paste, and then add this paste to your favorite cooking oil. 

Step 6

Heat the mixture gently, stirring often, until all of the water has evaporated and you are left with a sticky, dark green hash oil. 

Step 7

Enjoy your hash however you like!

Bubble Bag Method

Making hash at home is a great way to save money and get the exact type of marijuana you want. It’s also a fun way to learn more about the plant itself since you’ll be able to see how it looks and smells before you smoke it.

Making hash at home is a simple process that will require some basic equipment. The first thing you’ll need is some good quality marijuana, preferably with a high THC content (at least 15%). You’ll also need a pair of scissors, a rolling paper, and a grinder. If you have an oven or stovetop, you can use that instead of boiling water on the stovetop.

Another great way to make hash at home is by using the bubble bag method. This involves soaking your buds in ice water for about 12 hours before drying them out slowly in an oven or on top of the stove. 

The ice water helps remove unwanted plant matter from your buds without removing anything from the THC crystals inside them. After the initial soak, it’s important to use clean hands when handling your buds so that no dirt or other contaminants are transferred over into your final product. 

You should also make sure not to let any water remain on any part of your buds during this process! At this point, you’ll want to allow your hash to dry out in a well-circulated area. This might take about a week until it’s completely dry.

Choosing Quality Cannabis

The better the quality of cannabis you use, the better your hash will be. When selecting your cannabis, look for strains that are high in trichomes. These are the tiny, white crystals that cover the outside of the buds and contain most of the plant’s THC. 

You can tell if a strain is covered in trichomes by rubbing a bud between your fingers; if it feels like sandpaper then it has a lot of trichomes. You can also see them with the naked eye as they sparkle when held up to the light. If a strain doesn’t have many trichomes, don’t worry; just make sure you keep an eye on how long it takes to dry out and make sure to give it plenty of time to cure before smoking or vaporizing.

Keep in mind that different types of cannabis require different curing times; usually, indica varieties need to cure for longer than sativa varieties do.  Regardless of what type of cannabis you’re using, remember that the higher quality material means higher quality results. After harvesting your cannabis, it’s important to dry and cure it properly so that it retains its potency and flavor for a long period of time. 

Drying Cannabis: There are several ways to dry your freshly harvested flowers but the simplest method is called drying indoors. It’s easiest to do this in an airtight glass jar which needs little more than a towel inside at the bottom and three holes punched into each side (for airflow).

Now all you need to do is place your pot into the jar without breaking up any large pieces so they have room to circulate inside while drying.

How To Smoke Hash

Smoking hash is a bit different than smoking regular cannabis. The first thing you need to do is gather your materials. You will need a pipe, some screens, and your hash. Once you have everything, pack your pipe with the screens, and then add your hash on top. 

Light the hash and allow it to melt into the screens. Once it’s melted, start taking small hits and work your way up to bigger ones. 

Just because you’re smoking something that looks like marijuana doesn’t mean that it works in exactly the same way as marijuana. In fact, the hash is often stronger — and sometimes more sedating—than weed since many of its psychoactive compounds are less volatile at room temperature and therefore won’t burn off as easily when exposed to an open flame. 

When properly made, however, all of these effects can be balanced out by careful dosing so don’t worry if your method isn’t working quite right; just try lowering or raising your dosage until you find a happy medium between feeling high enough and not becoming too sleepy or paranoid.

How Potent Is Hash Compared To Regular Cannabis?

While the potency of marijuana varies, hashish is a product that is typically more potent than marijuana. The average potency of cannabis flower (bud) is around 14 percent THC. Hash has a THC content that can be much higher than this, with many varieties reaching upwards of 30 percent THC.

In addition to its higher potency, hashish is also more expensive than flowers because it’s harder to produce and usually comes from a less abundant supply than marijuana. This makes it more difficult for growers to cultivate large amounts of hash.

Another factor that contributes to the cost of hash is its quality. The best quality hash comes from pure cannabis resin that has been extracted using the ice water extraction method (ICE). This removes all plant matter from the resin so there’s no plant odor or taste in the final product.

What Does A Hash High Feel Like?

Although there are many different strains of hash, they all have their own unique taste, smell, and effects. Some are more earthy and spicy while others are sweeter with notes of citrus or fruit. The flavor of each strain depends on the type of cannabis it was made from, the techniques used in making it, and what part of the plant was used (i.e., trichomes).

The hash high starts with a feeling of euphoria, elation, relaxation, and calmness before progressing into feelings of laziness and fatigue as well as increased appetite. Some users report seeing colors more vividly while others experience heightened senses such as taste or smell.”

The effects of hash are similar to those of marijuana, including feelings of euphoria and relaxation, but they tend to be more intense and longer lasting than those produced by smoking marijuana. That’s because hash contains a higher percentage of THC (sometimes as much as 30%) than most strains of the pot (15%).

Final Thoughts

Learning how to make hash can be a fun experience that will result in a high that you’ll never forget. While the process might feel like an experiment at first, through trial and error you’ll be able to make the best hash around.
