Replace steps 2-8 above with these instructions:
- (Old School) Manual Method: Using a spoon or rubber spatula and hand mixing for a while.
- Pros: Cheapest method, needs the least amount of tools.
- Cons: The most physical work and the least efficient.
- Mixer Method: Using a hand mixer with beaters attached, or a hand drill with a paint-mixer or similar tool attached.
- Pros: Many people have most of the tools needed. This method is much easier then hand-mixing and more efficient.
- Cons: Still need a drill or mixer plus a good mixing attachment that’s also long.
- A hash-washing machine (mini washing machines)
- Pros: Easiest method since you don’t have to mix. Also, the most efficient method since all the material is constantly mixed while the machine is on.
- Cons: High initial cost since you have to buy the machine (
Alright, let’s make some bubble hash!
Making hash with a drill, mixer or by hand-mixing is the same process as with a washing machine. The only difference is that you will agitate everything with a power tool (or by hand) and pre-filter your hash-water with a 220-micron bag before filtering out your hash.

The cornerstone of making bubble hash is mixing up your weed, water and ice. All three of these methods produce the same quality of bubble hash. It’s the efficiency and amount of work that varies.
Whenever you hear the word ‘hash’, it’s just referring to the extracted resin glands (trichomes, the sticky sparkly stuff) of a cannabis plant. The ‘bubble’ part refers to the method of using cold water and agitation to extract that resin.
Bubble hash is made by putting weed (or trim) in ice-cold water and agitating it. This causes trichomes to break off the cannabis so you can collect them.
Most people just use one bucket when they are making hash. I will instruct how to use two buckets, in order to speed up production, get better yields and a longer lifespan out of the bubble bags. You’ll need to buy another bucket, but it’s well worth it for those who are making bubble hash often. This ‘two bucket method’ is explained here:
All of the hash group samples (dry or water-based extraction, bubble hash) tested clean from unwanted contamination. The hash samples were described as “exceptionally clean compared to the solvent-based concentrate”. As for the reason why, the researchers theorized that “Most hash processing uses large quantities of water which could potentially wash away pesticides which are water soluble while the non-water soluble cannabinoids remain behind”.
“Pinchy” buds, leaf and a few nice buds in a 5 gal bucket.
The Geneva Barns bubble hash bags have everything you need to get started producing potent ice hash minus the bucket, water, ice, something to stir with and of course herb (all explained in the instructions below).
Fifty-seven samples of cannabis concentrates from California medicinal cannabis users were used. 48 of these being solvent-based, while the remaining 9 were dry or water-based hash samples (named the “hash” group). They were measured for presence of residual solvents and/or pesticides, and cannabiniod levels.
With a range of different screen sizes for ice hash production, the iPower 5-gallon hash bags are a good, cheap buy for a lot of bubble bags. They are made of strong waterproof coated nylon material.
Dry and water based processes of making hash (Bubble Hash, Kief, etc.) are some of the cleanest extration methods available that are safe from any unwanted contamination.
Easy to use, easy to clean and reuse, plus freebies like the others. A cheaper option for those wanting to get a full collection of bubble hash bags.
This is the cheapest bubble bag kit that you’ll find for sale online. For beginners looking to experiment with hash making that don’t want to spend more than a few bucks, here’s your option.
