Ice water hash
Ice water hash is a type of cannabis concentrate that has been making waves in the cannabis community due to its unique production process and the high-quality product that results. Also known as bubble hash or water hash, ice water hash is an extract made using a method that involves ice, water, and fine mesh bags, hence its name.
What is ice water hash?
Ice water hash, or bubble hash, is a non-solvent cannabis extract, meaning no solvents like butane or ethanol are used in its production. Instead, ice, water, and physical agitation separate the cannabinoid and terpene-rich trichomes from the plant matter. The quality of ice water hash hinges on the initial material, screen size in extraction, and the extractor’s proficiency. High-quality ice water hash typically resembles light-colored granular sand.
What distinguishes ice water hash from extracts or live resin?
Unlike traditional extracts or live resin that use solvents for extraction, ice water hash leverages ice and water, offering a cleaner and more natural method. While live resin uses fresh, frozen cannabis to capture a broader cannabinoid and terpene spectrum, ice water hash can use either fresh, frozen material or cured cannabis. The absence of solvents in ice water hash production eliminates potential residual solvent presence, making it a popular choice among those seeking a purer cannabis experience.
