There are different types of hash. Dry sift is one of them. Like kief, its name simply reflects the process of making it. Yes, you dry sift dry sift hash. As far as methods go for separating trichomes from buds, this is certainly very hands on, almost artistic, crafty. Before you order it for weed delivery, however, know that you can make it yourself, if you have the time, equipment, and motivation to do so.
Like all forms of hash, dry sift is concentrated. The technique uses fine-mesh screens to sift buds and trim. It effectively removes trichomes, or resin glands, refining it into a granular consistency. Dry sift hash, especially quality-made, fetches a fine price. Connoisseurs appreciate its artisanal technique and revere its potency, terpene profile, melting ease, and complete vaporization.
Relationship of Dry Sift to Cannabis
Dry sift hash is a direct extract of cannabis plants. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, it is rich in cannabinoids, including tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, found in cannabis plants, since it derives from the resin glands that product them, called trichomes. Dry sift contains all the health benefits, medical properties, and effects of cannabis, just stronger due to its concentrated form.
Making Dry Sift
To make hash, producers rub sugar trim, or cannabis buds, across carefully made screens in a meticulous hand motion. Resembling screens used for silk screening, the process works best in a “Wax on, wax off” type of motion. Friction and agitation separate trichomes from buds and buds from stalks much faster, and since you use tightly woven screens, only the finest particles make it through, called trichome dust.
After plenty of sifting, this trichome dust begins to gather. It is ready once you sift it repeatedly and it truly resembles a fine powder-like dust. When sifting, it is easier to do it in cooler temperatures, as this stabilizes the dry sift and preventing it from becoming oily and sticky. This, in turn, protects it from collecting impurities that would otherwise stick to it. Cold makes trichomes brittle, easier to “pick.”
Enjoying a Fine Dry Sift Hash
Of all the hashes out there, dry sift is especially versatile. Because it is powdery, you can use in several different and imaginative ways. At its finest, in its purest form, you can press dry sift into a ball or slab, even dab it the way you would most other concentrates. Dabbing dry sift heightens the strain’s original flavor, as does vaping it, but there are other ways to some and enjoy this delight too.
Dry sift is particularly lovely for sprinkling joints, topping bowls, or giving bongs an added kick. Its powdery nature makes it very easy to work with. Pressed sift, whether done by machine or by hand, is less sprinkly, but you can still break pieces off it and crumble it into your weed for similar, perhaps even more potent, effects. Pressed or dusty, dry sift remains a favored form of hash across the world.
However you choose to use your dry sift, always remember that it is an extract. As such, although not commonly as potent as hash oil, distillates, and other concentrates, it still promises a mighty kick. You can order dry sift for weed delivery anywhere in Los Angeles. Alternatively, you can find it at some retail outlets and some dispensaries. Sometimes. Not always.
