Making fine-quality hash using bubble bags and ice water is a relatively new technique that requires some skill. However, the end product is amazing. Check out this video!

Hash is the oldest form of cannabis concentrate, and has been around forever. There are a variety of ways to make your own hash, and although some techniques like hand-rolling charas and dry-sifting are well-known ancient methods, creating homemade hash using bubble bags is a relatively new technique.

This method of making hash via ice water and bubble bags uses temperature to separate the trichomes from the rest of the plant matter. Although it is not the easiest method, making hash with bubble bags is gaining popularity as the end product is of a very high quality.

All you need are a couple of mesh bags (such as the Ice-O-Lator, which come with different-sized mesh), ice water, a wooden spoon, a couple of buckets, and lots of cannabis trim.

To learn how to do it yourself, have a look at the video above.
