A popular saying in ice hash making is “garbage in, garbage out.” In other words, you can only get quality from the end result if you have a quality plant to begin with. Once you have your quality plants, make sure that you freeze them after harvesting. Trim the fan leaves and discard any other materials such as petioles, stems and leaf tips. Wrap the leaves in a freezer bag and freeze until you need them. You should never freeze for more than a week, because the cold can destroy the heads.

The faster you extract the better quality your hash will be. It is worth noting however that the micron stage of filtration is also crucial to your success.

If you want your hash to turn out great however, then you need to make sure that you dry it properly after use. Chop it into smaller pieces or put it on to a drying rack to air off. Using parchment paper will also help to trap the moisture, and this really does hold the key to success.
