The following method is a simple method to how to make hash oil and preserve and trim, clippings, or low quality marijuana that you might have otherwise thrown away.
Buy some alcohol, yes, run to the liquor store!
We recommend using Everclear, high proof vodka, or rum. Everclear is the best to use if it is available in your area. Warning– Use extreme caution when using alcohol near an open flame. Alcohol is extremely flammable.
Grind the cannabis
By grinding the buds into small pieces, it makes it easier for the alcohol to be absorbed. This can be done using a grinder by hand, or by putting the buds in a blender and letting it run until it is all ground up.
Soak the ground marijuana in the alcohol
Place the ground marijuana in a jar that can be sealed tightly and pour the alcohol over it. You can put in as much alcohol as you want, covering the marijuana completely. Let the mixture sit for 24 hours. You will notice the alcohol has turned a green color. If you used very low-grade marijuana it may be a brownish color.
Filter out the plant fiber
Remove the plant matter by pouring the liquid through a coffee filter into another jar.
Let the alcohol evaporate
Pour the mixture into a bowl for at least another 24 hours. Allow the alcohol to evaporate.
Using the oil
Now the remaining mixture will be a green tar. There are a few ways to use it. The most popular method is to put it on top of some dried buds and smoke it in a pipe. Another method is to put the hash oil in a spoon. Heat the spoon and inhale the smoke through a tube.
Hash oil is a good way to get medicated with in a quick, efficient manor.
