Here’s How To Smoke Bubble Hash For A Solvent-Free Concentrate High

Smoking bubble hash may sound complicated, but it's not. Here are some ways to do it.

There are several ways in which bubble hash can be smoked, some more complicated than others but all of them will give you a good high. Here we show you some of them that we have found quite useful and that have allowed us to enjoy bubble hash a lot.

What Is Bubble Hash

Bubble Hash is a cannabis extract made by forcing flower through progressively smaller filter bags until you get a concentrate. It’s normally made submerged in cold water. This means that unlike extracts like butane honey oil, bubble hash is made without a solvent. This makes the smoke cleaner and the flavors and terpenes of the plant can be enjoyed even more.

Bubble hash is also more commonly smoked in a pipe and is not consumed using a dab rig like hash oil.

Bubble hash is composed of the trichomes of the cannabis plant. These trichomes contain very high levels of THC, as well as other cannabinoids and terpenes, making it a tasty and potent option that usually ranges from 30-60% THC.

Bubble hash is usually sold in an unpressed, almost crumbly form, which can vary from a pasty to a powdery consistency. It can also vary in color, from blond to red and even black in some cases.

To smoke bubble hash out of a pipe, you’ll often hear that it’s necessary to use a “hash pipe.”

But the difference between a pipe you would smoke flower out of, and many hash pipes you’ll come across, is minimal.

Often, when people refer to hash pipes, they’re really talking about a pipe with a tight mesh screen that prevents the small pieces of hash from falling through the pipe. Therefore, if you already have a pipe, you could simply put a tight mesh screen in its bowl and use it to consume hash.

If you don’t want the hassle of having to add a mesh, get the KØL pipe. This revolutionary device features a unique cooling and filtering mechanism that prevents anything from getting into your mouth while at the same time cooling down the smoke. Without mentioning its stylish design and premium materials.

Regular Pipe Instructions

  1. Put a tight mesh screen in the bowl of your pipe.
  2. Put some cannabis flower in the bowl. You only really need enough to provide a bed for the bubble hash. However, the amount of flower you put in the bowl is up to you and depends on your tolerance and personal preference. The more flower you put in the bowl, the more potent the high will be.
  3. Cut up some small pieces of bubble hash. These pieces should look like little crumbs. The exact size doesn’t need to be precise. They should more or less be 1 or 2 mm square. But don’t worry about sizing them up with a tape measure. Just use your judgment. It’s not rocket science.
  4. Put a few pieces of your bubble hash on top of the bed of cannabis in the pipe bowl. Try to rest the pieces of hash close to the sides of your pipe, rather than in the middle.
  5. Using a lighter, hover the flame just above the pieces of hash while slowly inhaling. The flame should dance just above the pieces of hash. If the flame occasionally touches the bits of hash, that is okay too. The main objective is to vaporize the hash, rather than burning it. If you do this correctly for long enough, eventually you’ll see the hash start to bubble and will be able to pull vapor through the pipe.
  6. Continue with step 5 for as long as you can, until your hash, or patience, runs out. Then, allow the flame to light the remaining hash and bed of flower. Inhale slowly, and finish the bowl as if you were smoking a regular bowl of cannabis flower.

Some hash pipes—the best ones—are designed much differently than a normal pipe. Unlike a normal pipe that has one hole in the bottom of the bowl, hash pipes will have at least one small hole (often more) near the top of the bowl. That allows you to vaporize your hash at the bottom of the bowl, allowing the vapor to flow upwards and into the holes at the top of the bowl.

The step-by-step for smoking from a hash pipe is:

  1. Cut up some small pieces of bubble hash. Similar to smoking in a regular pipe, you don’t need to be too precise. That said, aim for around 1 or 2 mm square. Again, you’re the judge, don’t overthink it.
  2. Put a few pieces of bubble hash in the bowl of your hash pipe.
  3. Use a “glass wand” to vaporize the hash. To do this, heat up the tip of your wand with a torch for about 40 seconds. You want to get the tip of the wand just hot enough that it almost turns red hot.
  4. Gently press the tip of the glass wand against the hash in the bottom of your hash pipe. This will cause the bubble hash to produce vapor, which you then inhale through the pipe.
  5. Exhale the vapor and enjoy.

Another Option: Bubble Hash Mixed With Flower And Rolled Into A Joint

One of the easiest and quickest ways to smoke bubble hash without any additional accessories or equipment is to roll it in a joint with cannabis flower. The flower helps the hash burn evenly, providing that extra kick in a joint, adding flavor and potency.

The Easiest Option: DynaVap

If you don’t want to complicate your life with difficult instructions and maybe rolling a joint is not your style, DynaVap has the simplest alternative so you can smoke bubble hash without any problem.

This powerful little friend can vaporize concentrates and some types of wax thanks to the DynaCoil adapter, which basically is a multi-purpose vaporizer perfect for bubble hash.

This portable vaporizer gives you the freedom to use your device virtually anywhere with any independent heat source, but for optimal flavor, we recommend a butane torch or an induction heater.

This product provides a different vaporizing experience, you will enjoy bubble hash like never before. And using it couldn’t be easier, all you need to do is:

  1. Remove the weed screen from The “M” Plus cap.
  2. Insert the DynaCoil.
  3. Place your bubble hash directly on the coil, alone or mixed with the flower.
  4. Heat evenly with a butane torch or an induction heater from the base of the Dynacoil by turning the DynaVap around.
  5. Wait until the first click indicates it has reached the correct temperature.
  6. Wait for the clicks that indicate it has cooled and repeat the process once again.
  7. Now you can enjoy a good bubble hash session.
