So after a while I end up with a lot of trim that’s almost good enough to roll and enjoy…
but that’s something I don’t bother with since I usually have plenty of much better flower to use.
I usually make a batch or two of good ol’ ice water hash, but I’m starting to make more hash than I end up using and want to try some other things out.
Here’s what I’m thinking about doing…
Ethanol Quick Wash (I’ve done this quite a bit with flower with mixed results… I think it depends on the flower/strain… this is close to what I do now)
I plan to pack as much as I can lightly into a quart container and place it in the freezer along with the ethanol I plan to use.
After pouring the ethanol into the container, I’ll place it back in the freezer for 3 minutes, then I’ll drain the liquid into a large pyrex dish.
I’ll do this 2 or 3 more times, then cover the pyrex dish with something that allows air flow but keeps out dust (silk screen) and let it sit for several days where it can vent well.
- Canna-Butter … there are a lot of different ways, I plan to go with a double-boiler and let it simmer there a while and then pass it through a fine wire mesh.
- Canna-Oil … again there are a lot of ways to do it, but I’ll probably do it similar to the butter and plan to use extra virgin olive oil.
I won’t do any sort of open blast like processing and I’m simply not ready to look at actually getting a closed loop system set up… Although I’m quite interested in closed loop systems, I want to make sure that whatever I do is legal in my state and complies with local regulations (don’t want to blow myself up or get fined).
I’ve read about folks having good luck with rosin pressing with flower, but I’m totally failing to find much on it using trim…
If you’re using something above, how’s it working out for you? (any tips or care to share your process)
What other things are folks doing with their trim?
What’s worked best for you all with your trim?
Thanks for sharing!
