- In this video we present the classic elaboration of hashish by means of the dry sieving process.
- For this we use some good buds of Autoflowering Cheese, adequately dried and cured.
he mesh is very important as, depending on its micronage (thickness of the mesh) it will yield trichomes of varying purity (the resinous glands containing the highest concentrations of THC, CBD, CBN and other cannabinoids). If you use one of greater micronage you'll obtain hashish with more plant matter. In this case we have utilized a 150-micron sieve. Normally users prefer the lower buds with leaves and branches to make hashish, but keep in mind that if you use the upper buds, with the greatest concentration of trichomes, you'll obtain a more potent, higher-quality hashish.
The process is simple, as shown in the video: sprinkle the buds and rub them to break them up and pass the trichomes through the mesh; then remove the mesh and gather up the trichome dust. You can smoke them directly in a bong, or press them so that they take on the characteristic paste form of hashish. In the video, the glass utensil is made red hot to prevent the inhalation of gases emanating from the lighter.
The extraction of hashish by dry sieving is a very common process in producing countries like Morocco, Pakistan, etc. However, the quality of this hash is usually low because they use processes aimed at marketing, like the sun drying of the plants (which transforms the THC into CBD and CBN, which produces a more sedative and narcotic effect). They also combine the cannabis with foreign substances, like honey and henna, to make it more oily. Thus, for us users it's a good idea to produce our own high-quality hash in the way that we explain in the video. Enjoy!
