Bubble hash is a concentrated form of cannabis, usually high in THC. Bubble hash is consumed by adding it to a joint, dabbing, or vaping. This article describes what bubble hash is, how to consume it, how to make it, from there you can go deep.
Hash is a semi-concentrated form of of cannabis, where the flower's resin and oil is separated from much of the fiber and pressed into compact cakes. Hashish contains various quantities of THC, CBD and CBN, depending on the strain of cannabis used.
Bubble Hash is refined Hashish - where much of the residual plant fiber material is removed. Bubble hash has a tendency to form bubbles when consumed, hence the name.
"Bubble hash is refined hashish that bubbles when smoked. The name was coined by Bubble Man, the Canadian hashish innovator who created a hashish sieving system that uses ice, water and multiple levels of screening in order to remove the resin gland heads from the cannabis plant material, and to further remove any impurities from the hashish leaving a very pure resin.
The use of only water and multiple levels of sieving to isolate the concentrated material is ideal for health-conscious consumers and/or medical patients for whom which chemical processing is undesirable or possibly a health risk. Ice water hash and ice water hash systems were available, namely from Mila of Amsterdam, but they used a minimal number of screens.'- Urban dictionary.
Different ways to make cannabis concentrates, many of which are called bubble hash.
Butane is the most common solvent used to extract the oils and resins of cannabis, especially the cannabinoids and terpenes. The butane is evaporated off easily at low temperature and the THC, CBD and other cannabinoids are left behind. Some of the lighter terpenes may be lost in this process. Normally this extract is called BHO or butane hash oil rather than bubble hash, but people can overlap the two terms. The downside of this method is that its dangerous and many fires and explosions result from mishandling butane. It's also illegal in most states without a special license.
Liquid carbon dioxide can be used to extract cannabis oils and resins too. Since carbon dioxide boils off at room temperature, and CO2 is not toxic at all, the remaining extract is very pure and contains only the essential oils and resin of cannabis, and the extraction of THC is nearly 100% using this method. This method is great for large scale manufacture, and it's safe, but you need to have somewhat expensive equipment to use this technique.
Heat and Pressure
A homemade method not necessarily recommended is Heat and Pressure. Using only a hair straightener as a heat source and pressing hard, the isolate THC will melt together into a nice THC-rich blob of extract.
Ice and Cold Water
Extracts can also be made by using ice, ice water, or dry ice along with filters or sieves - to knock resin off of cannabis nuggets. Since oily resin doesn’t really dissolve in water, it’s relatively easy to separate. This method doesn’t use any sort of chemical and so is known for creating extracts that are especially clean, pure, and healthy.
Ice/Cold Water Method
Line the bucket (5 gallon) with your special Canvas Bubble Bag 25 micron bag (large pore size) first, then switch to a 220 micron bag (very large pores).
Fill the bucket with enough cold water to cover the bottom of the Bubble Bags (about halfway full).
Add your dry or frozen plant trimmings.
Add enough ice to almost fill your bucket to the top.
Stir your mix for 15 to 20 minutes, adding ice if necessary to keep the water cold. A 50/50 mix of ice and water is ideal.
Pull out your Bubble Bags one by one, draining them into the bucket.
As you pull each Bubble Bag, turn it inside out after it is finished draining to collect your herbal extract.
Gently press the excess moisture out of your herbal extract using your pressing screen and a dish towel.
WHAT THEY'RE SAYING
Question: Hi all, very recently I have tried bubble hash and found it more efficient (financially) then flower. I was wondering if any of you guys have had any experience using bubble hash in a vaporizer.
Talk: I use bubble almost constantly while vaping. I crumble it up into a fine grind, like the consistency of coffee, and add a small pancake sandwich between cannabis in my stem using the Arizer Air. It also worked very well in the Lotus.
Talk: Can you elaborate on how you set up the lotus for bubble hash? I've been wanting to try this out, but didn't want to muck up the WPA.
Talk: I fill the bowl about four-fifths to the top, mix a little bit of herb and bubble together and sprinkle that down as the final layer and place the cap over that. You don't have to worry about your hash mucking up your screen, and you get some amazing flavor on those first couple draws.
Talk: That first 4/5s is flower, yeah?
Talk: Yeah. I like to have a good pack of flower so that I don't gum up my screens, and it seems to work pretty well.
Talk: I can report good results in both the crafty and the volcano.
Talk: Do you crumble it up in the oven or like put it into a ball or a pancake ? Do you mind elaborating ?
Talk: I usually just crumble it up on the liquid pad and crank it up to 10.
Talk: I've vaped Moroccan hash in my solo. It works, but you have to clean screens a lot later. For the solo I have a very fine screen in my stem and hold it upside down. I used to sandwich a piece between two screens, but the double cleaning was annoying and realized holding it upside down eliminated the need for the bottom screen and it worked perfectly fine. It just took a bit longer to get the thick vapor going than flower of course. Your first draw or two will feel very empty, then suddenly on the third hit the hash gets all hot and bubbly and you get massive clouds.
Talk: I'm a hash noob though and have no idea how the extraction quality is. With flower, if I turn the solo hot enough, it vapes so well my abv is useless. I have no complaints, but I have nothing to compare it to.
Talk: What happened that made you think your ABV is useless?
Talk: My weed source isn't the best, it's quite dry, and seems to become close to or fully extracted from normal use.
Talk: When I used a homemade vape before I got my solo, I could take one bowl after vaping and get wrecked from eating the abv. Tolerance was lower too, but I've tested it again recently. The solo is just too good at vaporizing, at least with very dry heavily grinded weed for the abv to be useful. Granted I could try to save large volumes and make a hash or something, but I just don't really care about solo abv.
Talk: P.S. and the solo gets me MUCH higher from vaping identical bowls than my homemade source of course and I much prefer the vape high to the edible high.

I was blown away to see this wine colored water on my first wash. It took me a few moments to piece it together. Makes me think of the "winter grapes" type of wine making process, where
they leave the grapes out as late as possible to enhance flavor.
What is Bubble Hash?
For starters, bubble hash is—like the name suggests—a form of hash. And like all hash, this stuff is super potent. If you spend time Googling the term “bubble hash” you’ll see a bunch of different explanations for what it is and how it got its name.
Some say it’s because bubble hash is so pure it bubbles when you smoke it. Others say it’s because this type of hash was developed by cannabis legend Bubbleman.
