    What you need:

    - A decent amount of kief (pollen), at least 5g, which can be collected using a special kief collecting weed grinder which can be bought at all good smoke shops.
    - Plastic cellophane wrapper from end of cigarette pack.
    - Damp towel.
    - Hair straightener.

    This is the easiest way to make homemade hash. Here's how to make the hash in easy steps:

    Step 1: Turn on the hair straightener.

    Step 2: Take cellophane wrapper and fill with several teaspoons of kief (depending on how much hash you want to make).

    Step 3: Burn filled wrapper shut using a lighter. It should only take a split second.

    Step 4: Wrap damp towel around the cellophane baggie.

    Step 5: Place the baggie covered in the towel into the hair straightener and press it shut tight. Give it a good 10-20 minutes making sure to check regularly so nothing burns.

    Step 6: Take out the towel and baggie, throw the baggie on a flat floor and press it flat with your foot.

    Step 7: Remove the cellophane plastic covering and there you have it...fresh beautiful hash.

    Check out the video at this link in order to see how it's done...

    I tried it and it turns out beautifully but when he did it, he didn't have enough kief so he expects even better results the next time. The hash is marvellous. Just as good as any high quality Moroccan hash out there. Then again, the kief was from White Widow. No wonder the hash is so potent.

    would pollen pressers create the same hash? It basically just compresses the pollen into a hard kake

    if you have that much crystal to work with then you can just as easily use the same method but with any device that can exert pressure(logs weights there are many options just think) and just press the shit out of it. heating lowers the quality of the hash in my opinion. the real point here though is that regardless of method what is really important for hash is to make sure that the crystals you are using are going to be high enough quality. you have to take special care in discriminating good kief from bad kief or impure kief. there are actually a few different colors of kief off of every bud if you just take all the time to seperate it out.

    Kief isnt pollen either. Kief is the trychomes from the resin glands drying out. As the plant dries the resin is excreted out the pores and it crystalizes when it comes into contact with the air.
    They look like little mushrooms under a microscope.

    SWIM pressed some kief today, with good results. He had a medicine cup full of kief, which he dumped into the plastic wrapper of a cigarette case, rolled it tightly into a sausage-like shape and taped it shut. He then wrapped it with two layers of newspaper-squares, one folding length-wise, the other width-wise. This was soaked it in hot water, then put into an oven at 175 degrees Celcius / ~350 degrees Fahrenheit for ten minutes.

    After taking it out, he tossed it onto the floor and layed a cutting board on top of it. He stepped/stood on it for a few minutes, then put it underneath the leg of his coffee table for another few minutes.

    He then unwrapped the product (scissors where necessary to remove the cellophane and the tape), and was pleased with a solid-flat-piece-of-lovely-smelling-brown-hash. Yield from the medicine cup worth of kief: 6.6 grams. Not too shabby for 15 minutes work, considering of course you have the crystal!

    Okay so I have been trying to figure out te best way to make my kief into hash but everyone has a method for turning just a gram or 2 ito hash. I have 22g of high quality kief and wants to try and make some good hash. Would the celophane oven method work for 22g? Or is there a better way if you have lots of kief?

    Rebel the oven method could work for that kind of an amount but it might be time consuming, it might be easier to just press it. Pollen presses are available and relatively easy to improvise. Of course there are also other uses for the keif (especially in that quantity) such as baking or tincture making. The aptly named "Kief kandy" comes to mind.

    Hey, forgoten rebel
    there is a simple way I heard about, a ghetto-ass pollen press.
    Take a neck of a coca-cola bottle, about an inch long.put a piece of duct tape on one end, and drop a nickle in there. Just a little room left around the edges.
    Now add 1/8 or 1/4 oz of kief, and place another nickle on top. tighten a C-clamp, a small one, and press the hell out of it. If it is higher end keif, ie less extraneous plant matter, all trichomes, then it should definitely press well with pressure.
    alternatively, pack into 11g packages,(in wax paper, wrapped in saran wrap) flat, about 2X6", and place one in each shoe. walk around for a week, voila, shoe hash
    the wrapping in cellophane, SEALING COMPLEETELY, wrapping in a faw layers of newspaper, sealing again, and submerging a few times in 190 deg water, rolling w a rolling pin, and allowing to cool in the fridge should meld the trichs into one solid mass, without the dry heat of the oven.
    Hope this helps

    An even easier way to go about this, especially for guys without a hair straightener, would be to do the following:

    Mason Jar (Or Something Similar)
    Wax Paper
    Hot Water

    STEP 1:
    Take two pieces of wax paper and place them on the counter. Size will depend on how much kief you have.

    STEP 2:
    Take the kief you are using and place it in between the two pieces of wax paper. Just make a decent sized layer across the paper.

    STEP 3:
    Boil some water or get really hot sink water and fill the mason jar up with it. You might have to wear gloves or let it cool down a tad bit.

    STEP 4:
    Roll the mason jar over the wax paper where the kief is at. Do this for anywhere from 5-10 minutes.

    STEP 5:
    After you are done rolling the jar over the kief, cut the wax paper down to size and stick it in the freezer. Give it about an hour and you have made Heated Pressed Hash from Kief.

    Good Luck.
