How To Smoke Bubble Hash The Best Way

Embarking on the cannabis journey can sometimes feel like navigating through a maze.

When you stumble upon the golden treasure of bubble hash, you may wonder what it really is and how it can be used for recreation. 

In this guide, we’ll chart the waters of bubble hash, teaching you how to enjoy it in its finest form.

What Is Bubble Hash?

With a name like “bubble hash”, you might imagine it as something you’d blow bubbles with on a sunny day. Nevertheless, our seasoned sailors know it’s far more exciting than just that. 

At its essence, bubble hash is the epitome of the cannabis plant’s resinous trichomes – highly potent and daring. Through the use of ice and water and a gentle agitation process, trichomes are separated from the plant, collected, and dried. The result? The glorious substance that is bubble hash. 

And the “bubble”? Well, it truly lives up to its name, bubbling readily when exposed to heat. This pure, solventless concentrate carries the genuine flavors and aromas of its parent cannabis strain.

How To Use Bubble Hash: Methods Of Consumption

1. Going Traditional With A Pipe Or Bong

Holding a pipe or a bong can feel like embracing a friend – comforting and familiar. 

How to: Nestle a petite piece of bubble hash on a mesh screen or metal gauze, preventing any unfortunate plunge into the depths of your pipe or bong. 

Pro tip: Gentle is the way to go – overpacking or overheating can rob you of the subtle notes that make bubble hash as unique as it is.

2. Vaporizers: The Modern-Day Genie Lamp

Vaporizers, tailored for concentrates, are the real heroes of bubble hash amplification. 

How to: Sandwich the bubble hash between layers of flower in your vaporizer. If you have a vape meant for concentrate, place it directly into the concentrate chamber. Set the vaporizer to the lowest setting and gradually increase until you find your desired heat. 

Pro tip: Play around with the temperatures – the lower ranges tease out the flavorful terpenes, while higher ones bring out the crescendo of potency.

3. Sprinkled On Flower And Rolled Into A Joint

Infuse your regular joint with the specialty of bubble hash, kicking your smoke session up a notch. 

How to: Gently crumble and sprinkle your bubble hash over your ground cannabis flower, roll it up, and ignite your sensory symphony. 

Pro tip: Quantity is key – go significant or subtle – adjust to your personal desired effects.

4. Dabbing: Not The Dance, But Just As Fun

Find yourself asking “Can you dab bubble hash?” The answer is absolutely and the brave souls who venture into dabbing bubble hash are rarely disappointed. 

How to: Preheat your dab rig nail. Using a dabber, gracefully place a small piece of bubble hash onto the nail, and inhale slowly as it vaporizes. 

Pro tip: Bubble hash can leave more residue than other concentrates. Regularly cleaning your rig can ensure every performance is spot on. 

So, whether you’re into the classics, finding your preference among more modern beats, or simply enjoying the in-between, there’s a bubble hash rhythm waiting for you. 

Dive in, explore, and let each session be a choose-your-own-adventure kind of session. 

What To Pair Bubble Hash With

Ready to embark on a delectable exploration of perfect pairings?

1. Liquid Elixirs

  • Craft Beer*: Hops and cannabis – two peas in a pod. Fancy an aromatic IPA?A citrusy ale? Both can echo the flavors of your hash, providing a harmonious 

elevation to your palette 

  • Tea: Going for indica bubble hash? Herbal teas such as chamomile and 

peppermint can elevate its tranquility. Riding the sativa wave instead? Green tea could help sharpen those cerebral highs. 

  • Wine*: Red wines like Cabernet Sauvignon can amplify the earthy notes in bubble hash. Crisp white wines, such as Sauvignon Blanc, can highlight the 

fruiter undertones of bubble hash. 

*Combo Alert! Mixing cannabis with alcohol can significantly enhance the effects of each substance. Always consume responsibly. 

2. A Munchies Feast

  • Citrus delights: Refresh yourself with some oranges, lemons, or pineapples – perfecting those fruity notes found in bubble hash 
  • Cheese: Dive into creamy brie or sharp cheddar which contain terpenes similar to those in mycrene-heavy strains. Consuming the two together can amplify each other’s effects. A gourmet experience. 
  • Dark Chocolate: Cocoon yourself in cocoa-rich melodies that complement the flavor profiles of most bubble hashes. Dark chocolate contains beta-caryophyllene, a spicy terpene found in cannabis – consuming the two together provides a symphony of effects and flavors. 

3. Surroundings & Endeavours

  • Bubble Bath: Indulge post-indica hash session. Truly, a celestial blend! 
  • Nature Walk: Let sativa-tinged bubble hash enhance the colors of nature, each step in amplifying the depths of nature. 

In the art of pairing, there’s no particular roadmap. Chart your course, experiment, and find your sweet spot!

DIY: Crafting Bubble Hash at Home

Crafting your own bubble hash can be an alluring task. To see trichomes evolve into a golden elixir? Pure satisfaction. 

Let’s get to the concoction. 


  • Cannabis plant material* 
  • Bubble bags – specialized filter bags that come in varying sizes for different grades of hash 
  • Ice 
  • Cold water 
  • Large buckets 
  • Wooden Spoon or Spatula 
  • Cheesecloth 

*The more cannabis plant you use, the more hash you will collect


  • Place your cannabis plant material in a large bucket 
  • Layer the plant with ice, enduring it is completely covered 
  • Pour cold water until the plant is completely submerged. Let it sit for a few minutes. ● With a wooden spoon or spatula, agitate the mix for 20 minutes, letting trichomes break free. 
  • Lay your bubble bags in a second empty bucker, and layer them with the smallest micron size at the bottom, working your way up to the top 
  • Slowly pour the icy-water mixture into the bucket with the bubble bags. Lift each bag sequentially, letting the water drain while catching the trichomes on the filter. ● Collect the hash after the water has drained. Marvel at the varying grades of hash, with the 73-micron bag often taking the crown. 
  • Spread the hash onto a cheesecloth and press gently to remove excess water. Air dry in a cool, dark place for a few days. Ensure completely dry to prevent mold. 

Storage: Airtight container in a cool, dark place. Whenever the time feels right, snap a piece, and savor your handcrafted gem!
