    Kief Pucks

    I tried posting this earlier and got thumped-probably because I attached a YouTube instruction -my bad. anyway-I am testing this process with some green dry ice kief -a little tedious but thinking of doing it with the trim from my current harvest-ideally will be blonder. Has anyone done this..? thoughts? there is a YouTube on it but I cant seem to post it.
    Anyway

    Yes, I have it works great. I put them in vac seal to keep fresh. I have some that have been sealed for months and they seem to cure well for a better smoke.

      No need to bake this. Some call it kief some call it hash.First time I encountered it was in 1970. It was called Lebanese hash. There was red and blonde. I have made both. Have not seen any til now and I believe I make as good. If one uses only high end bud and very fine screen it is possible to get trichomes only and this can be smoked as is or heated and pressed for oil/resin. The trichome only product I would call hash and mixed with other plant matter I would call kief.

      Since one will chip/ cut the puck to smoke i.e. Pipe-heating- firing the kief is natural decarb. As with the bud. No need to decarb in advance.smoke it.

      I bet it's different from place to place, but this is how I've heard those words used in San Diego.

      When I've heard the word "kief", I've heard it to refer to what's basically loose trichomes. For example, if you have a grinder with screen, or use a screen or bubble bag 9n fresh bud or trim, the stuff that falls through is the trichomes (glitter on the bud). I heard of all those trichomes, which have sort of a powder-like consistency, referred to as kief. It's basically a pile of raw trichomes.

      As far as "hash", I've heard that to refer to the result of pressing or applying pressure/heat/processing until kief/trichomes sort of becomes a different substance. For some reason it has slightly different effects if you smoke it when it's been processed as opposed to "raw". Some people roll kief between their fingers. "Scissor hash" is the trichomes and gooey stuff that collects on your scissors when you trim buds. It gets sort of dark and if you smoke it you get a different feeling than bud. You can also collect hash through a screen or making dry ice hash, then pressing the resulting kief into hash. It needs heat or pressure.

      There's lots of ways to make hash, and it seems to be sort of an umbrella term for when the "good stuff" in cannabis has been processed in some way so it's no longer a loose powder like kief.

      Anyways, I'm definitely not an authority, and I imagine it's different depending on where you live and but that's how I've heard those terms used

    Great! Thank you so much! Didn't think of vac seal but will do. Did you make them from dry ice kief? Or grinder?
    thank you for responding. I really appreciate it. Hope all is well with you and yours

        I make it from dry. I make 2 ways first I use a fine steel screen to trim over. What falls through the screen is usually a little more red. I use mostly small airy buds and a little trim. I only use the finest mesh bag.When only buds are used it comes out wonderfully strong. Don't press it too hard or you will smash trichs and it will not last as long in storage. With vac seal six months later and it is as fresh as the day I made it, only taste better and smoother smoke.

          I suggest to buy stainless press. I cheaped out at first and got an aluminum press. It lasted about 3 presses. The stainless is great, but expensive.

        Tomorrow I am going to grind pretty fine OG kush and do Sirius dry ice kief ( good god I hate the shake- Sirius doesn't sweat in video- I sweat and won't video ) then make more pucks. Will photo and post. Since I will be using 2 finest meshes it should be blond...better be blond.

              Thanks Nebula. The yellow isn't showing too well in pics but it is yellow
              Still wonder why Sirius didn't pour sweat shaking for the initial 5 mins LOL.
              I did my cardio/Pilates worth shaking...time better spent I must say

              Haha, Sirius is strong but I also feel the burn! I'll usually have sore arms the next day We need to invent an automatic agitator! Something like the Magic Butter Machine but for dry ice hash. You just put the dry ice and cannabis in, and it makes the hash for you! We need a Magic Hash Machine

            good morning! thank you tika for getting this thread going!
            T press: never used one, but the reviews say from worst to best... aluminum...brass...stainless. i got brass.

            Storage: been watching shit tons of tutorials. seems that hash doesnt store like flowers. sealing it up can be bad for anything more than a few weeks. saw one guy just covers the jar with panty hose, stores it cool, dry, and dark but exposed to air.
            if you need to keep it longer, how bout throwing in a silica gel packet in before sealing?

            I opened a vac seal puck yesterday. Was sealed since early November. It is better than when I sealed it, still fresh and sticky.

              maybe some folks had a bad experience and now they overkill prevention? see a LOT of that online, lol.
              6 months desertdan? how did you store it after vac sealing? and how did it become better?

              I keep the seal packages in a jar in a back closet. I should say it seems better. hard to tell after six months. It seems to smoke smoother better taste. Like curing I suppose.
