Sadhu Sam’s Hash Extraction Technique

October 21st, 2013 | By

This is an excellent way of making hash from your weed – and works even with weed that has mold or other problems.

Materials needed: strainer, a jar, water, spoon, coffee filters, dried ground bud.

The cannabis is initially ground up using a standard grinder to get the plant matter into the smallest pieces possible. It is all then put into a jar, water is added.

The material left floating is skimmed off, and can be extracted again if you want. The resin in the bottom of the jar gets rinsed several times in cool water, shaken and then left to settle.

Floating material is removed once again before the final material at the bottom of the jar is poured into a coffee filter so that it can drain properly and then be left to dry (ideally) overnight somewhere warm. Once dry, the hash can be pressed in the hand until it doesn’t squeak! If it squeaks, it’s still wet.

This method can be used to extract hash from plants that have suffered from mold or from insect infestations.

All water must be properly removed from the mixture, otherwise it is likely to spoil and lose some of its taste and aroma. This technique will not remove sand from your weed.
