A Good Way to Make Hash in a Flash

Make Hash in a Flash
Hash is a compressed mass of countless cannabinoid-rich resin glands, or trichomes, that are removed from the plant’s surface either by physical or chemical force. It is great for smoking, vaporizing, and cooking; it is very potent, and very easy to make hash from cannabis flowers of your collection of trim, shake, or stems. Here is what you are going need to do to make a great pressed hash:
  1. Put plant material into a jar with a coin. The coin will bounce around inside the jar, knocking trichomes off of anything it hits.
  2. Tightly fit a filter over the mouth of the jar and while tightly stretching a filter over the mouth, place a large rubber band around the mouth so the filter stays taut. A canning jar works great with a piece of nylon stocking. Simply stretch the nylon tightly over the jar and tighten the ring over the nylon, and you’re all set to go!
  3. Shake the jar mouth down over a smooth, flat surface, using quick, short horizontal strokes. The powdery light brown material that collects is called kief, THC-rich trichomes knocked loose from the plant.
  4. Collect kief and place into a cellophane pouch; cigarette and cigar packages work great here, unless you happen to be making a TON of hash.
  5. Press kief tightly to the bottom of the pouch, tightly fold into a small, flat square, and seal with tape.
  6. Tightly wrap the cellophane with a few layers of newspaper and seal with tape. Moderately moisten the newspaper.
  7. Heat at 200° F. for about 10-12 minutes.
  8. Remove and roll flat while it is still hot, flattening it as much as possible. Place it in the refrigerator to cool.
  9. After cooling, carefully unwrap everything until the prize inside is finally revealed. Your hash should be a rich brown color with a thick, tacky texture.
  If you have never tried hash, be aware that the THC content of hash is much greater than that of flowers, making it much more potent. Dose carefully to avoid exceeding desired effects. Even if you are just a casual smoker, you can make hash out of your collected stems and shake and save it for days without your smoke, or you can add it to what you have for increased effects.
