Critical Mass Bubble Hash , full melt, or ice wax is the product of ice water extraction. It’s one of the safest and cleanest forms of hash. Since the resinous trichomes don’t get absorbed by water, it simply washes the trichome heads off the plant matter (rather than using a solvent to absorb the trichomes). The product is a stable, grainy texture and a very potent cannabis medical product. Most cannabis medical users report this strain brings a clearing of the mind, leaving them feeling creative and focused, yet lethargic. The effects usually last between 2 or 3 hours, depending on the dose. Some cannabis medical patients find this strain thought-provoking and nearly psychedelic.
Hash, or hashish, is the product of collecting the resin or trichomes from cannabis plants. It contains the same active cannabis ingredients such as THC, CBD and other cannabinoids, but usually in higher concentrations than cannabis buds or leaves. Traditionally in India to make hash, workers would rub cannabis flower blossoms with their hands to get the resin to stick to their hands, and then the resin was collected and pressed. Another way to make hashish in some North African country like Morocco is to sift the ground-up, dried cannabis through a screen and compress the powder resin in a pressing apparatus. A modern method of producing hash is with solvents like isopropyl alcohol or butane extraction. With this method cannabis plants are ground up and covered with the solvents and left to sit. The mixture is then evaporated off all the solvents leaving the active terpenoid and terpene compounds. When you wants to use hash, you usually smoke it by putting small pieces of hash in a joint mixed with tobacco or preferably marijuana. Another way to use hashish is by putting small pieces of hash in a pipe or bong (water pipe) then lighting it with a flame and inhaling the smoke that comes out, holding it and exhaling it a few seconds after. Hashish is somewhat stronger than the average marijuana. When people smoke hash certain sensations come about. One can start feeling any of the following depending on the strain or origin of the hashish: happy, relaxed, feeling silly, feeling hungry or one can have a cloudy (not thinking clearly) or a very sharp mind depending on the Indica or Sativa dominance of the Hashish
