silk screen for hash

1. get a 40oz or similar size plastic cup
mtnjohn’s easy hash recipe
the first 5-10 mintues of shaking in any batch will be the most pure hash, after that not as pure but still great stuff
5. get a large mirror
2. fill it with your hash making material , shake/trim whatever
4. cover the cup with 2-3 layers of panty hose and secure with a rubber band
3. add about 2-3 quarters or similar coinage
6. gently shake the cup for 10 minutes or so. over the mirror and the trich’s will start falling
8. roll the hash into a ball and then . SMOKE IT MAN. 😀
What other handy household fabric can I use to do the shifting method to make hash?

Cannabis trichomes
These are the smallest ones, measuring from 25 to 30 microns in height. The gland is about 20 microns in diameter. Both the stalk and the head are formed by 1-4 cells. As the plant ripens, these trichomes may form a sort of nipple due to the accumulation of resin inside it.
Dry sift or kief is the result of mechanically removing the resin glands from the plant by sieving them with screens of different sizes, without any kind of solvent.
Most systems on the market developed to separate resin glands, as the popular Pollinator, have a 150-160 micron mesh to separate the resin glands – which pass through the mesh – from the plant material. But, according to the theory that we have just seen, there are lots of particles that also pass through the screen and that we don’t want to be part of our hash. Therefore, we must use different screens with different sizes to continue separating the different qualities – particles – of our raw resin. Normally, the best quality – where we find the higher proportion of trichome heads – is larger than 70 microns and smaller than 120.
Another important subject is the Terpene Range. Ripe cannabis plants segregate around 103 mono and sesquiterpenes along with other substances. Most of these terpenes are aromatic, so they have direct influence on the taste and smell of our buds and, therefore, of our hash.
The first thing we should know before trying to make the best possible dry sieved trichome separation is what types of trichomes we can find. As the plant ripens, trichomes segregate higher amounts of cannabinoids and terpenes. The three types of trichomes found have several features in common; they have a gland where cannabinoids and terpenes are segregated, a group of cells that attach the gland to the stalk, and the stalk itself, which joins the gland to the plant tissue. Let’s make a brief description of each of them.
