So today was the day I pressed my bubble hash and tried for some rosin. You can see in the end result the first, more pure run is golden and the next is more green. So here we go…
I am using the titan pollen press I got for Christmas and it works great @Zombo
This is the less pure hash that is more green.
I didn’t roll the inner copper piece too far down for the first one.
Fill it up, put the second copper piece on then cap it and twist until you can’t twist anymore. I saw in one of the videos I watched to put a light coat of olive oil on each copper piece to help with an easier release of the hash and it worked like a charm.
So from the 2nd run hash I got 4 grams of pressed.
On the more pure hash I got 2 grams.
Look at the color difference…
So now on to rosin extraction. I would say it was a success, just not a huge (in volume) success. Here is the set up.
I wasn’t going to use the coffee filter again as I felt is sucked up the rosin but I thought I should have something in there so I disassembled a tea bag and used that. Not something I will do again. The result wasn’t that great.
Lowest the temp would go.
As you can see not a huge amount. Next run was just in the parchment paper which yielded a little bit more.
But not enough to register anything. Scraping it up was a pain as it was more oily then what I’ve seen in the videos. It was sort of like a putty but more loose. I pressed two grams of hash puck and this is what I got. My husband wasn’t impressed with the results I got for my efforts but I plan to use this to make vape juice so I don’t need a huge amount, but I do need at least a gram. I saved a container from some wax I got at the dispensary to store it in.
I had some other things to do this afternoon so stopped there but I will do the rest of the hash and see where that gets me. @Countryboyjvd1971 you were correct that it worked better using the pre-pressed hash instead of loose like I first tried.
@bob31 Did you try yours with the flat iron yet? Were you more successful?
