Bubble hash, also known as water hash, is made from extracting and preserving its terpenes. Since cannabinoid compounds are not water-soluble, they will not be damaged through separation techniques such as using ice or filter bags.
When using the filter bag extraction method, it is able to separate the smaller trichomes and remove the resin from the marijuana plant.
Using cold water or ice as the separation technique will allow the trichomes to become harder. In turn, it will result in a less sticky consistency, becoming looser in the water.
The many methods to extract hash has their own pros and cons. It is best to look at the resources you have at the moment to see which method is right for you.
Bubble Hash Quality
So how exactly do you judge the quality of bubble hash? How do you know to compare a good one versus a bad one?
The easy way is by looking at the bubbles it produces. Hash is typically rated using a six-point scale.
If your bubble hash created any residual marijuana materials, it will lower the chances for maximum bubble capability. This will result in a lower rating for the bubble hash.
In short, the better it bubbles, the higher the rating.

Tips To Make Good Bubble Hash
Here are a few tips to make a good bubble hash product before you start.
First, make sure your cannabis strains are in a cold environment. This means you need to shut off any heat in the room, make the water ice-cold, and lower the temperature of everything.
The colder the cannabis, the better the outcome of your bubble hash.
Second, you should only use premium quality cannabis to make bubble hash.
Sure, you can use excess weed from your grinder. However, the end result may not live up to what you were hoping for.
Remember, you get what you pay for.
Lastly, try using purified water rather than tap water.
The reason is simple. The chemicals don’t mix too well with the trichomes. Thus, water that has been purified will just make the bubble hash come out just so much better.
