Yo, what’s good? My name’s Dan and I’m here to tell you about dry sieve, also known as dry sift or kief. This type of hash is straight-up fire, known for its potency and flavor. It’s also one of the easiest ways to make hash, so whether you’re a novice or a pro, you can get in on the action.
If you’re looking to make your own hash, dry sieve is where it’s at. And don’t worry, I got your back with this detailed guide to help you out. But first, let me tell you what dry sieve is and why it’s the most sought-after type of hash.
Dry sieve involves rubbing dried marijuana against a fine mesh screen which is similar to a sieve. This process causes friction which separates the precious trichome heads from the rest of the plant material. Trichomes are the tiny, white glands that give high-quality bud their frosty coating. They also contain the highest levels of cannabinoids and terpenes.
Dry sieve has a soft, powdery consistency and contains all the good stuff. It’s pure and potent AF because it has a much higher THC content than regular weed. Plus, it tastes bomb because it undergoes minimal processing and preserves more aromatic terpenes than other methods of making hash.
So, if you want to get in on this action and make your own dry sieve at home, here’s what you need:
– Cannabis buds, sugar leaves, or trim (the more trichomes it has, the better)
– A set of dry sieve screens
– A plastic card (cleaned beforehand)
– Disposable gloves
First things first, set up your dry sieve screens. These screens stack neatly on top of one another with the finest mesh on the bottom and the highest micron screen on top.
Put on some gloves and start sieving! Rub your herb gently back and forth across the screen for several minutes to create some friction and break off all those valuable trichomes.
Once you’ve finished with one screen, lift off the top screen to reveal a generous layer of powdery kief on the next screen down. You could use this as it is but if you want an even higher-quality hash, keep sieving!
Use your plastic card to rub the powder back and forth across the screen for a few minutes to cause more friction. Then lift up the screen again to reveal another collection of powder – this time purer and of higher quality. Keep repeating this process with each screen until you end up with pure trichomes at the bottom.
Store your dry sieve by scooping your powder into sterilized, airtight jars and storing them in a dark, dry, and cool place. Avoid exposure to heat, humidity, and oxygen, and your dry sieve hash should keep for a decent amount of time.
Dry sieve is versatile AF too! You can try adding it to joints, pipes or bongs in its natural powdery form. Sprinkle it on top of your bud for an extra kick or try making your own moon rocks! Pressed dry sieve can be smoked in any way that regular hash can be smoked too.
So there you have it – now you know how to make your own fire ass dry sieve hash! If you try making it at home or have successfully done so before, let me know in the comments below.
