What to do with the trimmed leaves
I just started to trim my plants and I am not sure what to do with all the trimmed leaves? Should I just throw them in a paper bag or is there a better way to dry them out for hash/bubble?
Just leave them in a bowl - they'll be dry when the bud is, then freeze them
Love your plant and the plant will love you back
i spread them out on a cardboard soda/beer flat.
I throw my harvested FAN leaves in a big box lid, dry them, then freeze them. I use them for oil.
My trim leaves, I dry and freeze same way, to make HASH.
Use them for hash or cannabutter. If its a small harvest I usually just make some brownies. A stick or two of real butter or crisco(for baking) melted in a pot with the trim and about an hour later on low heat and ya got somethin worth writin home about!

Does anyone have a website where you can buy the Magic Trimmer or something similar?
The people at this site do not reply!
Got some trim leaves???
HASH, or Hashish, is caked and baked kief, formed into a chunk, clump, or patty, or solid lump. . Kief is extracted trichomes (in Europe, they are called resin glands)
Let me revesrse that.
Those so called crystals (slang term) that appear on the bud leaves, are called trichomes, or trichs.
When removed, the trichs are callled KIEF. KIEF is gritty, and sticky.,,,,sort of like very small granuales.
If you remove the trichs (KIEF) and collect them into a mass, they called HASH.
Frozen or very cold trichs lose their stickiness, and are removed easier. You can use a silk screen, or a Kief Box, or bubblebags, or a Space Grinder to remove and accumulate them. Again, we get them from the "trim leaves", leaves trimmed from the buds, or we can just use the buds. The resulting HASH is very high in THC, a tremendous spacey Mind High..
When I think of OIL, I think of taking the EXTRA leaves, the FAN leaves, and drying them, grinding them up in a blender, with High Octane or High Proof Isopropyl Alcohol, or a liquid that is very evaporative, like the dangerous Butane Liquid.. You mix the blended leaves with the Alcohol, and then evaporate the alcohol out, and you have OIL left..it is like a thick TAR after it dries more. Not as high in THC, but very high in canabanol., and very much the body high.
Two tokes will make you sit down fast.
Here is HOW:
you will need is some 100 or 90 proof isophyl alcohol.
The leaves need to be dried and from female plants. I do not use or waste my Trim leves for oil but you can.
And you will need a PERMANENT COFFEE FILTER........ABOUT $3 AT WALMART.
HASH OIL is not really hash oil. It is the oil of the leaves. They just call it HASH OIL.
Very simply, keep your FAN or SHADE leaves. The leaves that do not have visible trichomes on them. Put them in open shoe boxes or card board boxes, in the dark, in a dark room, or under the bed. Let them dry for 5 to 7 days, stir them daily, to make sure they are dry and do not mold. Then freeze them or save them in a dry box or paper bag.
You fill half a blender full of the crumbled dried leaves.
You add half a bottle of alcohol, the highest strenght you can find.
BLEND them up. Add some move leaves and alcohol and blend them some more.
Get a NON-DISPOSABLE coffee filter, it is micro-fine, and strain them, keeping the liquid. Squeeze it out. That liquid is alcohol and oil, half assed mixed. Then you evaporate the alcohol out, takes a week, maybe 2 weeks, depending on how much alcohol you used. But be patient and let the alcohol evaporate, leaving a very sticky, THICK oil. It is almost like TAR. VERY GUMMY!
Do not smoke the alcohol.
You sill need a small sealable bottle to store it in,.
It is MESSY, use a stainless steal bowl.
What you are doing is mixing alcohol and oil, and then separateing it later.
Just like oil and vinegar salad dressing, they mix, but then they separate.
You use evaporation to separate them, that is why you use alcohol. WATER will not work!
Get the proper pipe, I like a glass bowl pipe, and put one half drop on the end of a needle or pin, hold the flame under the bowl until the oil smokes and then hit it! Make sure you are near the sofa or a chair!
To make that hash oil, you got to have a metal fine mesh filter. A permanent non-disposable coffee filter works great. $3.00 at Walmart!
VERY IMPORTANT; IF you make the OIL, you have to let it evaporate for a week or two weeks. IF you smoke the alcohol, it will really mess your lungs up.
This is a WICCA Kief box, the very best one on the market. There is one slightly larger and one slightly smaller, and you'll need one to make HIGH GRADE blonde Lebonese or Blonde Afganey Hash. You can buy them at a "head shop" or "smoke shop" or "herbal accessories" store or order them off the internet. I Do NOT use or like a GRINDER Box or Spaceship Box. They make low green or brown grade hash.
Left over fan leaves make OIL. The left over trim leaves are for making HASH.
Those CRYSTALS, (slang term) on the leaves are called trichomes, while they are still on the leaves. In Europe, they call them resin glands. AFTER you remove them, they are called KIEF.
After you bake them, into a lump or chunk or cake, they are called HASH. That is where the HEADY HIGH THC is.
Most people make HASH a difficult way, called Bubble Hash with ICE and Ice water and Bubble bags.. If you google HASH, youtube, you can watch 300 videos on how to make hash. The most difficult way is BUBBLE hash with ice water and bubble bags. The Ice water and blender method is a little easier.
I hate the ice method, your hands will freeze.
I use a strainer, or filter or screen, that is in my kief box, to remove them.
MUCH EASIER FOR ME!.
After you save up the trichs, or KIEF, you put them in a cellophane packet from a pack of cigarettes, pack it, use a roller to press it and make it hard. Tape it up with cellophane tape, wrap it with wet newspaper, tape it again, bake it at 200 degrees for 5 minutes on one side, and 5 minutes on the other side, then roll it again with a rolling pin or large glass, , pressing it again, and bake it again twice, 5 minutes each side.
You can google MAKE HASH to get details.
