    1 pint isopropal rubbing alcohol
    1/2 ounce weed
    2 pyrex containers(one must fit inside the other)
    heat source
    nylon stocking


    break up tops/buds, put weed in a covered container and cover with alcohol, shake vigorously for 3-4 minutes, The alcohol will take on a greenish hue. Pour alcohol into smaller pyrex container, strain (through nylon) and squeeze remaining liquid from weed "pulp" into same container. Add water to larger container and place smaller container with alcohol/weed saturated container into it.
    You will now "double boil" the extract/tincture, be careful, no open flame (use an electrric stove, don't burn or blow yourself up). The saturated alcohol will evaporate leaving a gummy residue. Scrape from pyrex container with a razor blade and roll into balls,,, enjoy

    yields 4-5 grams of gummy hash

    Mathematically speaking, it wouldn't be worth my while to make hash balls considering the weed I get is expensive top-notch stuff. I'll keep it in mind if I ever have lots of leftover average bud though.

    swim prefers the butane extraction, as you have more 'pure' product. swim's favorite is last layer 'creme' full melt bubblehash.

    I has never made hash, but it's kicked his ass a few times
