A popular choice amongst cannabis extract fans, Bubble Hash is a unique type of hash that is produced using ice water.
But what exactly is Bubble Hash?
Like traditional forms of hash, Bubble Hash is a solid concentration of cannabis resin glands however, unlike other types of hash, Bubble Hash is produced by using water.
Named because of the way it bubbles when burned, Bubble Hash ranges in potency, quality and even its colour ranging from light blonde to a darker shade of brown.
In today´s ever-growing market, the variety of choices available to consumers has never been greater and that is very much the case with bubble hash. Typically rated on a scale of one to six stars, “Full Melt” is known as the highest (no pun intended) quality of bubble hash on the market today. The “top-shelf” bubble hash offerings are typically produced using delicate mesh sieves that help to prevent undesirable plant material from passing through
This ultra-refined bubble hash bubbles consistently when smoked or dabbed and leaves only small amounts of material in its path.
A brief history of Bubble Hash
While it might sound like the latest fad, Bubble Hash actually made its introduction into the cannabis community during the early 1990s.
Reaching its peak in popularity around a decade later, the phrase “If it doesn’t bubble, it’s not worth the trouble,” became synonymous with the popular extraction. Indeed, quality remains high on the agenda (again, no pun intended) for bubble hash fans and remains a popular method of extraction to this day.
Of course, other popular concentrates like BHO and Rosin have stolen some of Bubble Hash´s thunder but it remains very much a favoured cannabis extraction in 2022.
What is the Difference Between Hash and Bubble Hash?
While most people are familiar with the regular hash that is typically pressed into a spherical or brick like shape and then broken up or burned for consumption, Bubble Hash is, in contrast, typically presented in an unpressed form, crumbly to touch with a consistency that varies between paste-like to an almost powdery consistency.
While traditional hash typically contains up to 50% THC, Bubble Hash is slightly more refined and is thought to reach THC levels up and beyond 60%:
Bubble Hash can also vary in its appearance and colour ranging from light blonde to deep amber.
