So, back to that quote: “The process of hash-making can be divided into two parts – resin collection, and resin preparation.”
There’s a very popular book written in 1998 called Hashish!, and it tends to be treated as the end-all source of hash-related information. Here’s their definition of hashish:

  • 73 will catch nothing but resin in this case
    • The good stuff – only actual trichomes with no vegetative matter at all! Golden colored and powerfully potent!
  • 160 will catch mid grade with a bit more ‘green stuff’ in it
    • Not as high quality as 73, but still great and definitely worth collecting!
  • 220 catches pretty much everything else that’s not an actual leaf or stem
    • This will have much more plant matter than the other two, but still much less than actual bud. This will smell like a concentrated form of your buds! I personally skip 220, but I would strongly suggest collecting 220 at least once before dismissing it, to see if it works for you!

This is the 220 Micron dry ice hash
Regardless, we’ll stand by that statement, and we’re confident that by the end of this article you’ll be itching to try making some dry ice hash. And we’re even more confident that once you do try making it, you won’t go back to any other method unless someone invents ‘Resin Teleportation™’.
You should now have 3 grades of your own solvent-free, homemade hash: 73 (pure resin), 160 (not as pure but still really good stuff), and 220 (it’s super fragrant and super free!). Enjoy!
Simply put, hashish (which we’ll now just call hash), is just the isolated resin glands of the cannabis plant. Even simpler, hash is when you get the good sticky stuff from your cannabis all by itself. In a sense, hash is distilled cannabis!

Although not all hash is the same, many types of hash are pretty darn close. Water hash – also called ice hash, bubble hash, gravity(Gumby) hash, and dry ice hash all produce forms of the same product: isolated resin glands. The difference between methods comes down to how the resin is taken off the plant, and how the hash comes out afterward.

How To Make Dry Ice Hash from Buds/Trim Let’s get straight to it: Making hash with dry ice is the easiest, fastest, and (more importantly) the most efficient means of extracting resin

Bubble hash refers to collecting hash from your weed (or trim) by submerging the weed in ice-cold water and agitating it. This causes trichomes to break off so you can collect them.

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.
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.

Here’s a short video of a washer in action
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.
Alright, let’s make some bubble hash!
