A superior method that is used to extract bubble hash is the ‘Gumby method’ that uses only water based gravity filtration to build up sediments so that resin glands can be easily extracted. This method requires equipment that is easily available at home and does not need silk screens, expensive bubble bags, tumbler drums or dry sieving to extract or process resin glands.Gumby Hash is a very easy and efficient way to make using a water filtration technique.
The gumby hash is physical seen ice hash or also known as bubble hash. The main difference between the bag and gumby ice hash method, is the trichrome size. With gumby we not need any bag so we are able to catch up all sizes of trichromes. With equipment the most of us have in kitchen, we can start a gumby session today. This tutorial shows you howto get the best and cleanest gumby hash results, with cheapest equipment. I did the following method more then 7 times and it works best that way, so make sure you read this tutorial several times before you start
- 750gms trim preferably ‘White Rhino’ strain
- 4 ice-cream pails of ice
- Cold water
You will need the following equipment:
1. Trimmings of high quality (minimum 70 grams, you could mix it with cuttings from clones also)
2. two Buckets, ice and water (the more ice the better, but try to not conflict your mix process)
3. A mixer
4. Latex Gloves a pair (the water is very cold, but if you hard you not need them)
5. Sallad Screen or the ones for noodles are also good
6. Synthetic fine meshed curtain for the second filtering
7. Three glass jars
8. A funnel with 10mm diameter and a funnel with 2mm to 4mm diameter.
9. Paper towels or shit paper for soaking the last water
10. Alu foil or baking paper but the last maybe soaks water if stands for long time.
The process begins with an ice wash. This is the most important part of the process as the cold ice hardens the resin glands for easy extraction. Use the high quality ‘White Rhino’ trim for best results. Fill one 5 gallon bucket with cold water. Add one ice-cream pail of ice and then add the 1/4th part of the 750gm trim. With an electric drill aggressively agitate for a full 10 minutes. If you are not sure about the resin glands hardening properly you could drill the ice and hash for 15 minutes to ensure that the resin heads are removed and can be easily collected.
After 10 to 15 minutes of aggressive agitation, use the screen to remove the spent swag from the bucket. Put on your latex gloves as the water will be icy. Squeeze out swag thoroughly before removing from the screen. Place waste swag in a plastic bag. Remove any ice cubes still in the water and use them in the next bucket wash. Keep screening the water till you have very clean clear water that is golden brown in colour. Clean the swag fully from the wash bucket. Next place a screen on a clean bucket and pour this wash into it. You now have the “gumbo wash” and have to wait patiently for gravity to do the rest.
Repeat this process three times more till you have 4 buckets of clean gumbo wash. Allow the buckets to sit for 4 hours. Do not touch or move the gumbo wash water as the water has to be absolutely still and motionless. After four hours, use the hose to siphon off the water from the buckets to about ½ inch above the resin heads settled at the bottom of the bucket. Make sure you don’t get the hose too near your precious resin heads. You could use a turkey baste to get the last of the water out till you get the desired ½ inch of water at the bottom with the resin heads below.
Take a glass jar and pour the full contents of the gumbo wash. Make sure to swirl the bucket a bit so that all your precious resin heads go into the jar. Allow these to sit for two hours and watch with glee the resin glands collecting at the bottom. After two hours, use a piece of aquarium tucking to siphon the water out from the glass jar. Once you have siphoned off as much water as you can then suck out the remaining resin water through a turkey baste and place the mixture into a bowl lined with a double sheet of wax paper or aluminum foilLet’s wait again for another 2 hours and let the water settles the including trichromes to the ground. This is the same as before in the working bucket. The only difference now is the syfon tube is smaller now. In the meanwhile of waiting we can smoke a Jay or Bong and drink another coffee. Also let’s grab some more equipment that is needed for the dry process
And don’t forget to grab a cup of coffee or some other drink, because the trichromes water tastes very ugly and you need to soak it with your mouth the first time, to get underpressure on the tube. The funnel should be always on top, don’t go to deep inside the bucket or you loose stash. You can very soft tilt the bucket on the end to get as much water out as you are able to. Best is a good lighting to have a perfect sight on the bucket bottom.
Begin the drying process now. Place a heating pad, a light bulb and a small fan around the resin. Keep monitoring the drying process. If you feel there is too much water and you want to speed up the process then soak up the water with a paper napkin without hurting the resin heads. The drying process will take several hours. Once it’s dry you will have a huge nugget. Dry for a few hours more and then finally roll the sticky black when the water is 75% dry. Roll into a ball till you see perfection. This ball will give you about 5.4 grams and will bubble like crazy. So this means you get roughly 15% of resin volume from 750 gms of trim.
Enjoy your feast. However, before you get stoned clean up the equipment! Check this outThis method allows, with easily accessible material, to produce good quality hashish.So far so good. We’ve learned that we can create products like professionals with just a minimal ammount of equipment. You don’t need to buy every new stuff because you have it often already at home. Be creative. It’s just a weed.

Resin does not dissolve in water, but water catalises the breaking down of cannabinoids. So the shorter it spends in the water, the better. It settles in 10-15 minutes (depending on the height of water layer above) perfectly.
I also recommend rinsing 6-7 times with ice water until water is completely clear, to get rid of all dust, fungal spores, pollens, leaf powder, etc.
