Hashish, also known as hash, is a compressed, concentrated cannabis product made from the trichome glands on the cannabis plant. Typically smoked in a pipe or bong, hash is the most common form of cannabis consumption in Europe and many other parts of the world.
This popular product, created in different ways (including ice water extraction, known as bubble hash, the focus of this article), contains a high concentration of compounds such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), and terpenes. This concentrate generally has a low impurity and plant matter content.
Cannabis concentrates primarily consist of trichomes, which are tiny hair-like outgrowths on a cannabis plant's surface. The capitate-stalked trichomes growing on the budding flowers are best for concentrate extraction, as their gland heads produce the highest-intensity terpenoids and cannabinoids. You can extract trichomes using several methods. For example, you can rub the buds between your hands to build up trichomes into a ball, but hash created like this will contain many impurities.
Extraction methods to ensure a high-compound concentration include:
So far, we've looked at what hash is. So, what is bubble hash, more specifically?
Bubble hash, or cold-water bubble hash, is a solventless cannabis concentrate derived from the plant using the last extraction method on our list – ice water extraction. The name comes from the bubbles that form when applying heat to the hash, but it may also reference the bubble bags that sift plant matter during extraction.
Ice water extraction involves cooling dried and cured budding flowers in ice water until the trichomes freeze and easily detach from the plant. The material then moves through a series of progressively smaller sieves to separate the trichomes.
The primary difference between bubble hash and other cannabis concentrates is that bubble hash does not contain solvents. Ice water extraction doesn't require the use of chemicals such as alcohol, ethanol, or butane. The result is a safe and clean extraction with a high terpene content.
At 30% to 60%, the THC content of bubble hash is low compared to other concentrates. However, bubble hash has a high concentration of terpenes.
Terpenes interact with your body to:
Terpenes also have therapeutic properties, and the aromas they emit reduce stressors such as discomfort, inflammation, and stress.
Smoking bubble hash doesn't have any hangover effects, thanks to the absence of impurities and solvents.
The THC and high terpene content give you a robust and euphoric onset with a clear and surreal high. Users say that the CBD in bubble hash provides relief for depression, anxiety, and even post-traumatic stress disorder.
In terms of consumption methods, bubble hash is highly versatile and ideal for users who like to experiment. You can consume bubble hash as edibles, roll it into blunts, or add a little to your bong. Some people use bubble hash to make honey oil for moon rock.
