Making bubblehash is a great way to recycle Medical Marijuana trimmings.

Recycle, reduce, reuse. These three words have been imprinted in most of us, especially in the grower community. By practicing such methods, consumers use less, decrease waste, save money and even help the environment.
The same rings true in the Medical Marijuana community and should not be overlooked. If looking at the “ recycle, reduce, reuse” method, a grower can take what once would be considered trash and turn it into a high quality potent stash.
Often, growers take for granted the valuable “sugar leaf” that is left behind when trimming. There are many ways to collect resins/triclomes. No matter what method a grower is using, remember you get what you put into it. Removing large fan leaves is always recommended, while sugar leaves and small buds are usually worth rescuing.
Once the high quality material is collected, a removal method for getting the quality THC and other cannabinoids from the organic materials must be decided. Methods range from the very simple to the more complex. Cold water extraction is a relatively easy method that can get good results. Other methods, like using butane gas extraction to make oils, can bring great results, but should be attempted only with expert experience since there are many safety concerns with such a method.
A personal favorite of mine is the “Bubble Now” machine, which is a mini-washer meant for bubble hash extraction. A combination of collected cannabis material, ice, water and agitation freezes the triclomes off the leaf, causing resins to separate from leaf matter, Resins than fall into suspension with H20 solution as it is being rotated. After the spin cycle is completed, hash extraction bags are used to separate the resins from the water and you will be left with a high quality, high potency, full melt bubble hash.
Remember, no matter what extraction method a grower chooses, it is always better to recycle plant matter.
Thanks for recycling and keep it green!
