The process of making bubble hash involves agitating cannabis plant material in ice-filled water. The resinous trichomes freeze and break off of the plant matter, sinking to the bottom of a metal sieve, usually within a series of mesh screens, each with a diminishing sized mesh. The finer the mesh, or “micron,” the finer the material and lesser the plant matter.
Bubble hash comes in an array of colors, depending on the ripeness of the cannabis being used, the amount of plant material that makes it in, and the size of the mesh micron it was filtered or “sieved” through. Bubble hash can range from blond to red to black, with the lighter colors often being the most desirable.
Note: Some bubble bag sets come with 5 bags and some come with 8. We use the 5 bag set, but we don’t use all of the bags that come with it. All bag sets come with 25, 73, 160 and 220, but the size of the other bags differ depending on who’s selling them. Some sets come with a 45, 90, or 120 and many growers like to use those bags. However, we only use the 25 (good stuff) 73 (the best stuff), 160 (not bad stuff), and 220 (cleans out the junk) bags. The most important thing is to start with 25 and make sure each bag after that goes up in number.
