Every grower has shake right?... i know i do, and TONS of it. What do you do with your shake?
Just make hash
smoke it .
Make butane hash oil. It's a very easy way to do it and the results are great. We made a tube out of a long fat pipe, capped the ends, made a hole for the butane to enter and a number of holes on the other end. dry and grind your trim and fill your tube. cover the holy end with a coffee filter so as not to get trim in your oil. We run 3 4.5 oz cans of 5x refined butane through a tube (ours holds around 2 oz.). We separate out our big fan leaves from our coated sugar leaves and we get about a gram per tube with the fan leaves and double that with the sugar leaves. Butane boils at room temp so its easy to get rid of the butane by setting your collection container (We use a pyrex bread loaf pan) in a larger pan and filling the second with boiling water, It normally takes filling it up twice with boiling water before all the butane is gone. If your dripping it on a bowl or cooking with it there is no need to do anything further sans scraping it out. You can also throw it in a pan and cook it to both activate it (you can just eat it at this point and get high) and to cook out the very, very tiny amount of butane that might still be trapped in it. And of course the disclaimer lol. butane is a very flammable gas, and it acts strange in that it does not really rise and just kinda hangs out till it gets blown around and dispersed. Always use in a safe area, We use a garage with the door open a quarter way, and never smoke around where your doing it. As I've heard said "just remember that you have an incendiary device in your hand.....and its leaking." Oh ya and the pipe will get very cold so wear gloves lol. I hope that helps. If not there is lots of info out there about how to do it and youtube has a bunch of videos as well.
Sounds interesting, not sure if ill ever be trying that soon lol.
I make bubble hash with the trim. But the shake, typically i keep it for a rainy day or give it away to someone in need.
