I start off with the pile of kief, which I try to break
up quite fine. This pic shows some chunks still in it,
but the more consistent and fine the powder, the better
the final product will be.

Here is a FAQ on an
easy and quick method of pressing homemade hash.
Sometimes I like to keep my hash in powder form,
especially if I don't have a lot. But there are those
times when you have a decent amount and you want it to
be in a nice compact block. This method
requires the following tools:
Iron with steam function
Minimum of one gram of kief powder or crystal
My method for pressing was discovered in a
bubble induced dream, and I quickly got to work testing
out my method. It is by no means perfect, and I keep
tweaking it to find just the right combination of
heat/pressure to get my hash to the desired level of
I should also say that a few others
have tried this method and were happy with the results.
As well I have spoken with Bubbleman and he agrees that
this is an effective method of decarboxilation.
powder is then evenly distributed and wrapped securely
in numerous layers of wax paper (enough layers so that
the inside layers of wax do not melt), but it is quite
normal for the outer two layers to melt together.
I fold it
up into a little package and then prepare my iron (set
to steam mode). I then apply slight and even pressure to
the package, two seconds on, two seconds off, for
approximately 45 seconds. Both sides receive the same
amount of pressing.
Since the iron is set to
steam it nicely wets up the package as well, which helps
to not burn the wax paper.
this step I place the package in the freezer overnight.
In the morning I dash to the freezer to check on my new
Don't forget the best part of making
your own hash is sharing with friends and family!
