What is bubble hash?
Bubble hash, named for the way it bubbles when smoked, refers to a specific type of hash made with ice water. To make bubble hash, cannabis flower is added to bags of ice water (called “bubble bags”) and agitated, which freezes and then breaks the resin glands from the flower. These broken resin glands, which contain essential compounds like THC and CBD, move through a series of screens while the plant material is left behind, forming bubble hash. Like traditional hash, bubble hash is a solid concentration of cannabis resin glands, or trichomes. It can range in color from light blonde to dark brown. Bubble hash gets its name from its tendency to bubble when brought under a lighter’s flame.
Whereas Hashish is most often found pressed in to a brick or sphere shape and then broken up to smoke, Bubble Hash comes in an unpressed, almost crumbly form which can vary from a paste-like to a powder-like consistency. Bubble hash is generally preferred by connoisseurs in today’s concentrates markets. That’s because it’s generally higher-quality, it contains less plant material, and it’s less prone to surface contamination during production. As a result, bubble hash often melts better than sift and is generally more pure and flavorful.
What is the difference between Bubble Hash and regular hash?
Bubble Hash is more refined and generally more potent than regular hash, and can only be produced through the ice water extraction method. Traditional hash (short for hashish) has been used since roughly 900 AD, and includes a variety of THC levels, cultivars, colors and intended uses.
How do you smoke bubble hash?
Like other forms of cannabis, Bubble Hash can be consumed in a variety of ways. Bubble Hash can be smoked, vaped, dabbed or cooked into edibles. As always, be cautious with your dosage with Bubble Hash in its various consumption methods.
