    Ok, ive been searching the hell out of this site, and I only see yield figures that are for trim. I just ordered a 5 bag bubble bag system, and I was just wondering about how much I should get from using very good heavy tric encrusted bud. I know that 3 to 10 percent is what most have said, but what about using straight bud? I know there are many factors.... But what is a guestimate, with some really crystally bud.

    i'm thinking about 2 o's if its good bud and make sure to run it thru twice maybe even three times if you still get quite a bit from the second run thru

    Dang thats alot!!! Do you know the percentage rate when using top quality? I know leaf is 3 to 10, but does that mean bud too?

    well my buddy gets about 2 grams from an ounce of clippings so i figure if your using good buds about 3 to 6 grams an ounce depending on the bud

    I would like to know the same thing. I have made lots of hash but never weighed the amount of trim I used beforehand.

    So does anyone know how much hash you would get using straight bud? This might work for some people that don't want to carry around lots of bulk since it's easier to conceal.

    It is ENTIRELY dependent on the quality of the material used and wether or not you want quality or quantity. If you use a blender or paint mixer or something like that you will rip up the plant matter resulting in contaminants in your hash. Your yield will go up, but the increase in yield will be form contaminants, not trichromes, so your quality will go down.

    With good shake I can pull at least an ounce a pound of nice, melty hash, which is about a 6-7% return. With good hash strains that is higher - like a 10% return or more. If you over-process the material you can double that, but the quality will be crap. It really, really depends on the material though - both the quality of the bud it came from and the strain are important. For example, the strain Lemon Jack produces twice the return of all other strains I have tried - somewhere in the 15-20% return, but this is unusual.

    IMO using bubble bags for bud is a waste because you get a low return. You would have to be getting 10-20 times the price you get for bud to make it worth while. Also you get higher yield when you have material with a lot of surface area. In other words, good shake actually works a lot better than buds.

    if you grind your bud up and let it dry is the way you would go about taking buds and turning them in to hash. So you figure you should get a better percentage than you would from trim. As all you would do is remove the stems from the groud up buds. the only reason people use trim is because its something that would have been thrown away and now they turn something that was worthless to something that is awesome
