@GNick55 is that a special plastic you're using to roll it out... and is there a certain temp the hot water should be? Does the type of glove matter, and is that a shaving brush you're using? Sorry for all the questions... I've never made hash before and you clearly know what you're doing... kind of want to try that technique.
ask about anything and everything!!
the plastic/cellophane is actually just stuff i get from buying cloths and food, haha if it looks good to use i keep it.. better stick to a thinker cellophane..
yes it’s good to have a few brushes around, shaving brush, synthetic bristle paint brushes.. etc.. maybe even a pretty make up brush😁..
the temp of the water is just boiling water poured into a rolling pin or wine bottle etc.. let sit for a bit to have bottle heat up..
yes you need nitrile gloves..
french cannoli (rip)
dank duchess
bubbleman
are people i learned to get better from..
google them..

The cellophane turkey bags work great. You can cut them up to get a few sheets for pressing resin.

I was always mesmerized by Frenchy and how he crafted hash. I have a few mason jars full of my “A grade” sugar leaves that I’ll make some dry sift out of for temple balls, but what I REALLY want to do is make some charas. My first grow was less than a year ago and I had the opportunity to try charas for the first time from my scissors after trimming lol. It was wonderful.

So my plan…is to figure out how to get ”scissor hash” from my buds and/or sugar leaves more efficiently. Got any ideas??? Traditional methods are on living plants but I’d like to figure out a way to select buds to collect it without using heat or a press. Maybe cold pressed? Is that similar in taste and effect I wonder?

was your charas from indoor or outdoor?
i think outdoor weed is much better for making hash and QWISO..
just trim your weed with bare hands and collect it as you go.. i’ve actually made videos of this but no idea where they are on here..
the resin used for charas is taken from fresh plants generally still in the ground or during trimming which i call finger hash a bonus treat while trimming..
so with fresh resin some heads are easily broken which makes it easier for collection,
so cold pressing sifted resin will not give your charas.. but rather crumbly chunks would be my guess..

You just gave me an idea… so first, it was indoor grown. But that made me think.. why don’t I just throw some autos out in the backyard, let them do their thing, and if they make it I could collect right from the live plants. Maybe get a nice little ball from 3 or 4 plants.

@GNick55 what are the differences/ benefits of pressing it, melting it and forming a ball, as opposed to just pressing it and leaving it in a chunk?
the big piece i pressed in the pollen press was resin from the 75 micron uncleaned, so depending on your sifting “skill” or need, will determine the amount of “contaminate” so i knew i could press it as is for me.. as when i heat it up to roll a joint it breaks up nicely, smokes perfect..
so than i had more 75 micron leftover and decided to “clean” it by removing the contaminate with the glove method., now once you got the clean resin you can do whatever you want with it, i make a “temple ball” style hash and put it away for as long as i can.. as during this time it 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️ forgot the word oh age like wine and the cannabiniods will get rid of any contaminate the may be still there., and i figure the farm likes to see that hash more so than a pressed piece from a press.. i only smoke hash and oil only for at least 35 yrs now.. maybe smoked/tried 5-10 weeds joints since than.. so i need lots!
oh if i decided to press that 75 uncleaned with the hot bottle, the piece may not have melted enough to stick or if it did it probably would just crumble apart within a few days.
and i’m getting to old to be pressing big pieces, geezus that would kill me, love my pollen press.. i could of clean it all and put it into the press, but if i did i wouldn’t heat the press too much and i would of put the resin in a cellophane “baggie”, than when pressing id release as soon as i could feel the pressure starting when pumping up..

Just to add to question- what do think of the different buzz? Temple ball vs say full melt sift? I personally think the ball has a more mellow relaxed high even more than the full melt - my last try I tried just applying heat to dry sift and hand work it but it’s just not the same to me anyways

obviously if you can sealed and leave the temple ball alone for at least a few months you should notice a difference. i usually when sifting/cleaning resin i’ll take some and roll a joint with it, not sure if i notice much of a difference, i’m always rolling joints with oil and i’m always baked/high 24/7, i wake up still high, haha..

I'm feeling overwhelmed by all the different techniques to make hash/ concentrates... trying to decide how to go about it. I'm thinking I'll use some to smoke and some for edibles... I'll have to figure out how to dose that so I don't put anyone in a temporary coma.🤣
Y'all just smoke joints of straight hash? Gotta say, I didn't even know that was an option. 🤣 I've only had hash a handful of times honestly, my FIL made some a few years back... before that, I hadn't had it since being introduced to hot knives in my teens. All I know, is that my year old butter bud is taking up too much real estate... something WILL be made.

When I finished polishing this it was as hard as a marble. Weighed 5g. I wrapped it very tightly in the cellophane I pressed it with and put it in a small jar in the dark for exactly one year. When I open it I cut it in half with a pocket knife like butter. I’m glad I left it alone. Came out very nice. I have another one that I put away at the same time that I haven’t open yet. That one is 13 months and counting.

hot knives haha that was a loooong time ago.. i mix tobacco with my hash to smoke in joints, ya ya i know..
but you can mix with weed too.. you might as well buy a 10-20 gallon bubble washer too.. i’ve got a 5 gallon and it’s too small for me but it’s also easier to keep cold in my conditions..

That seems like so much more work lol
You Canadians and your tobacco weed combos lol

I’ve only made hash a couple times…both times from the kief from my grinder lol. Not the best quality. Took forever to save up enough. It definitely sends me into a nice trance though.

But when I smoked some scissor hash from my first harvest in March…it was even better. I have a few jars of sugar leaves from the same plant, and now a couple jars of sugar leaves from a new plant. Unfortunately I only have 1 screen which is 110 or 120 I can’t remember. I got it from Hobby Lobby, it’s meant for something else.

The sugar leaves seemed to have cured in the jars, and the terpene profile is completely intact, which I assume will be lost when heating and pressing, but I think I’ll give it a try soon, sifting on the screen I have.
