Why Should You Freeze Dry Bubble Hash?

The whole point of freeze-drying bubble hash is to preserve its delicate trichomes, those potent resin glands that hold your hash's flavor and effects. Freeze drying also gives your hash a beautiful, inviting texture

Before proceeding with the freeze drying, if you use the home freeze dryer, ensure you have the latest firmware installed. Installing the pharmaceutical firmware on the home freeze dryer is crucial, as you need it to reach specific temperatures ideal for hash. 


Step-by-Step: How to Freeze Dry Bubble Hash

  1. Tilt the Harvest Right Freeze Dryer: Position the front of the dryer slightly upward for efficient water drainage (beneficial for all freeze-drying processes).
  2. Skip Pre-Drying Your Hash: Pre-drying can diminish the quality of the result. Instead, let the freeze dryer handle the entire drying process. If you can't freeze-dry immediately, freeze the hash in trays after extracting it from the bubble bags.
  3. Ensure an Ideal Thickness for Drying Efficiency: Thick, uneven layers won't dry correctly. Aim for approximately 1/4 inch thickness; use a spoon to flatten the hash.
  4. Evaluate Hash by Micron Ratings: Separate hash from each micron bag to see which produces the best result for you.
  5. Optimizing the Freeze-Dryer Settings: Precise temperature and humidity control are key. Incorrect settings could cause terpene loss. Dry time depends on hash quantity. Here's a starting point: shelf temp at 30-35 degrees Fahrenheit, freeze 6 hours, dry 4 hours 15 minutes.
  6. Avoid Using Defrost Mode After Drying: This can harm hash quality. Allow natural defrosting by leaving the door open. Repeat 2-3 times before activating defrost. The tilted freeze dryer helps drain water towards the back.
  7. Finishing Touches: Sift the dried hash through a stainless steel screen or sieve. Gently push the material, resulting in a powdery texture.



Remember, achieving the perfect freeze-dried bubble hash is a journey of discovery. By experimenting with temperatures and times, you'll transform your hash into a masterpiece of aroma, flavor, and potency. The satisfaction of creating this top-tier product is well worth the effort
