In this guide we will be explaining how to make dry ice hash. The whole process is very easy, and can be completed within 15 minutes! 

Using popcorns buds and tip leaf to make dry ice hash is a great way to get more out of your harvest. You can save trim from your grows until you have enough to make some of your own.

After reading this guide, you will be saving all of your cannabis trim to make dry ice hash, and maybe even using some buds too.  

What is Dry Ice Hash

Dry ice hash is simply, hash. The difference is the way it has been made. Usually hash is made using water and ice. This is known as water ice hash. Dry ice hash is made with dry ice, instead of water ice.

The principles are the same, you get the plant matter cold. This makes the trichomes brittle, and their heads will snap off easily. These heads will then be filtered out, using bubble bags. This is what hash is made of.

What is Dry Ice?

Dry ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide. It is used primarily as a cooling agent.... Its advantages include lower temperature than that of water ice and not leaving any residue (other than incidental frost from moisture in the atmosphere).

Dry Ice Hash Vs Water Ice Hash

Dry Ice hash is the easiest, cleanest and fastest way to make hash out our cannabis trim and buds. It freezes at a lower temperature than water ice, and it evaporates leaving no residue behind. 

When you make hash using water and ice, you have to use lots of water, and lots of ice. Then you have to add the cannabis into the ice and water and stir for a long time! 

Water ice hash is preferred by some simply because water and ice are readily available. To get dry ice, you have to order it online and have it delivered. But overall, if you can get some dry ice, making dry ice hash is by far the best way to go. 

Where to Buy Dry Ice for Making Hash

Buy dry ice in the UK, Percys Grow Room, Cannabis extracts guides,

Dry ice is easy to get online. You simply order it and it will be delivered. Where to get it will depend on where you are in the world. But much like anything else, a simple google search will find what you're looking for. 

Go to google and simply search “food grade dry ice hash”. This will show you your closest supplier. 

It's better to have too much than not enough. So buy more than you need. 15KG should be plenty and should be enough to make hash out of at least 10 ounces of cannabis. 

You can buy dry ice from Amazon, just click the picture on the right.  

Is Dry Ice Safe?

Dry Ice warning, cannabis forums

Sort of. If handled properly, dry ice is very safe to use. But if you do not use it responsibly you may cause damage to yourself or property. 

When you handle the dry ice pellets, use gloves! Do not touch it with your bare skin as it may burn you and could cause frost bite! 

Also, dry ice is pure co2, and this is a toxic gas if it builds up in high levels. Make sure the area you're using is well ventilated, and take regular breaks if you need to. 

What You Need to Make Dry Ice Hash

To make dry ice hash, you only need a few things. Cannabis, dry ice, and some bubble bags. It is a very simple clean process. Once you have made your hash, and seen how easy it is for yourself, you will make it out of the trim from every harvest. 

So of course, to begin, you will need some cannabis. 

Cannabis Buds or Trim?

Using popcorn buds and tip leaf from harvest to make dry ice hash is great way to get the most out of your harvest. The more trichomes your cannabis has on it, the more hash you can make. 

Buds will contain more trichomes than leaves, so using more buds will yield more hash. But tip leaf works great too! You see lots of trichomes of the sugar leaves of a cannabis plant, and often this stuff is thrown away. 

Anything from a cannabis plant that has trichomes on it can be turned into hash. The best stuff will come from the buds, but you can get brilliant hash using sugar leaf too. 

Dry Ice Hash with Wet Trim?

Yes. The process of making hash consists of freezing the trichomes heads and breaking them off. They are then filtered and made into hash, everything else is thrown away. 

It doesn't matter if you use dry trim, or wet trim, all you're harvesting are the trichomes from the plant. You can use the trim and popcorns buds from a recent harvest, or save the trim from multiple harvest.

If you throw away tip leaf and popcorn buds every time you harvest, you are wasting perfectly good cannabinoids. Make dry ice hash to get more from your grows!

Buy dry ice in the UK, cannabis website, dry ice

Dry Ice Pellets for Hash

Dry ice will come in 2 forms. As a block, or as pellets. To make dry ice hash, it is best to use pellets. For one, a block will have to be broken up before use, which isn't easy. Second, the pellets are smaller and can mix amongst the plant matter better. 

Using pellets is a much easier method. It is highly recommended you buy dry ice pellets when you make hash.

You should also look for "Food Grade Dry Ice" to ensure it is clean of any toxins. 

Bubble bags for making hash, cannabis growers forum, percys grow room, ali bongo

Bubble Bags

Good high quality bubble bags are a crucial part to making good hash! If you buy a cheap low quality set, they may tear when you're using them. This will spill dry ice and cannabis everywhere, and contaminate your clean hash. 

You can buy a set of Bubble Bags from Ali Bongo! We highly recommend you use these. They are strong and high quality! You will also get a 15% discount on your purchases at Ali Bongo when you use our discount code: PERCYS15

What Micron Bag for Dry Ice Hash

Bubble bags will come in sets. Each bag will have a different “micron” grade. This means how small the holes are in the filter. 

Small micron bags will only allow small particles to pass through the filter. Trichome heads will be much smaller than pieces of plant matter. So when you use a small micron bubble bag, only trichome heads will pass through it. As the microns get bigger, more and more plant matter will pass through the filter with your trichomes. This will lower the quality of the hash. 

It is best to start with a small micron bag, and make one set of premium hash. Then reuse the plant matter in a bigger micron bag to make a lower quality. You will get good hash from anything up to 120 micron bubble bags.

In the bubble bag kit from Ali Bongo, you will receive the following Micron Bubble Bags:

220 micron bag
190 micron bag
160 micron bag
120 micron bag
90 micron bag
73 micron bag
45 micron bag
25 micron bag

The 73 micron bubble bag will give you nice blonde dry ice hash. But you can use a smaller micron if you wish. 73, 90, and 120 micron bubble bags will all produce high quality hash. It is up to you which one you use.

Making Dry Ice Hash

Just like anything, being properly prepared will make the whole process much easier. Make sure you have all of the equipment you need close by.

Clean all of your surfaces to ensure no dust contaminates the dry ice. You want it to be as clean as possible. 

Here is a video of Macky and Zombie Nation making dry ice hash out of trim. It is a quick easy guide to follow with all of the info you need. Watch this video and follow this guide step by step. 

adding cannabis to a bubble bag, percys grow room, learn to grow cannabis

Step One, Fill Bubble Bag With Cannabis

Remove any large stems that could damage your bubble bags from your cannabis. Place handfuls of cannabis into the bubble bag until it is around ⅓ full. 

If this is the first run, you should be using a small micron bubble bag. The 73 micron bag is great, but you can use the 45, or 25 micron if you prefer. 

Remember, the smaller micron you use, the less hash you will get out of it. But the quality will be much higher.

Step 2, Add Dry Ice

Using gloves, take a couple of cups of dry ice and place them into the bubble bag with your cannabis.

Shake the bag a little to mix up the contents, and then wait for a minute or so for the dry ice to freeze everything. 

There should be a draw string at the top of the bubble bags. Pull this to close the top of the bag. This will reduce any spillage.

Step 3, Shake

Now, simply hold the bag over a clean surface and shake it like a salt shaker. You will see powder falling from the bottom of the bag. This is your dry ice hash.

Shake the bag aggressively for at least 2 minutes. You need to get as many trichomes as possible to break off and fall through the filter.

After a while, the powder will stop falling from the bag. This means there is nothing left to fall out. You can now move this cannabis to another bubble bag, with a wider micron, and shake it more.

Reusing cannabis like this will give you more hash. It will be of a lower quality, but anything up to 120 microns will give you good hash. So make sure you get the most out of your cannabis.

Step 4, Collect Dry Ice Hash

Now there is a fine layer of powder on your surface. This is all of the trichome heads you have shaken out of the bag.

Leave the powder on the surface for a few minutes to let any excess CO2 and moisture to evaporate. Then you simply scoop the hash up using a card. 

From here it can be compressed using a hash press, rolled into a ball, or pressed into a block using your hands. It is completely up to you. 

How Potent is Dry Ice Hash?

Hash made from dry ice can be very potent. It consists of the head of the trichomes from a cannabis plant. Using dry ice to make hash will leave you with clean hash, with very few contaminants. 

The smaller micron hash will be more potent than the larger micron hash. But as long as it is stored correctly, and properly cured, you will have a high quality hash that is both potent and tasty.

How to Store Dry Ice Hash

After collecting your dry ice hash powder, you should compress it. The best way to do this is by using a hash press. Pour the powder into a hash press, and simply compress it. This will help all of the trichomes heads merge together and make a solid block of clean hash.

Once compressed, you're dry ice hash should be stored in a dry cool place, in the dark. It is best to use an air tight container to store your dry ice hash. This will help the hash cure to get a better flavour.

How to Cure Dry Ice Hash

Curing hash is a long process that takes months. Some people choose to bury their hash in their garden to let it cure. Sitting in a cold dark place for a few months will make a huge difference to the quality of your dry ice hash. 

Wrap your hash in cling film / saran wrap, and place it into an airtight container. From here find a cool dark place to store it. The cooler the better, but do not freeze it. 

If you can make the hash and store it at low temperatures, you will preserve more terpenes. This will massively improve the taste and the effect from your hash. Cure your dry ice hash for at least 6 months to bring out the best results. This is when the terpenes can really express themselves and bring out that special hash flavour.

To Summarize

Dry ice hash is very easy to make. The most difficult thing about it is actually acquiring the dry ice. But once you have that, all you have to do is add it to some cannabis in a bubble bag, and shake. 

Trim from your harvests can be stored up for months in a freezer. Save your trim from all of your future grows and make yourself some dry ice hash. It really is very simple and the fresh clean hash you get in return is amazing. 

Of course, if you need any help at all, or have any question, feel free to ask in our cannabis growers forum, we are always happy to help. 

Much love Percy Growers, Happy Growing!

Thanks for the great write-up! I tried it with the trim I got from the 2 plants from my first grow and got 5 grams from the 73 micron and 23 grams from the 160 micron. Now just waiting for my chocolate bar molds to get here 😎

You make really good guides! Smile I hope some day you will make one for "ordinary" ice, as dry-ice is really hard for some to get a hold of.

I love it! When I tried it I loved the result! Soooo tasty. My problem was I have back trouble and can't shake the bag like that for long.

Soooo... as a former carpenter/millwright 😄 I turned technology on it. I researched power kief seperators. $$$. I found a video on YouTube of a guy using a paint can attached to a reciprocating saw. It was brilliant! I bought a new can but noticed it had a sprayed on liner.  Not wanting to smoke liner I found a stainless steel buffet serving pot thing at a local restaurant supply store. 

I bent a blade 90 degrees sideways, fastened it to an L-shaped bracket and bolted it together. I made two large washers for strength. The first run broke it.

20220117 120258
20220117 120250
20220117 114012

 Then I got a large band pipe clamp, cut my 160 micron bag down and sewed it on. I repurposed an old snap clamp and riveted it  to the clamp for easy removal. It has to be very, very tight. I added a silicone gasket and voila!

20220117 113759
20220117 114045
20220117 114004
20220117 113912

 

It kicks ass. Of course you can overshake and it turns green and you get chlorophyll. As long as it was blonde I was good and it tasted fantastic. I questioned the violence involved but quickly dismissed that with my first bowI. I put it my drying room at 50% humidity. Then I put it in two small Mason jars.😉
