Stopping back after a long time away. Long story. Or not. I’m high.
So I’ve decided to try to turn 3 ounces of stored “okay" bud into some good hash. I had hoped to use the old fashioned sieve method with one size screen like 90 or 100 (I’m not into investing much time or money into this), but, no. After 4 hours of researching it, all I know is that everyone disagrees, some believing that it depends, in part on strain (with most stating that making resin, using butane shit, etc is the “only way to go, bro!”). This is frustrating.
I’ve never really understood why multiple screens are needed, rather than just going straight to the desired mesh (i.e., 75, 90, etc). Will skipping a stage like 160 prevent some of the trichs from getting through and afterward breaking up enough to get through the 90, 75, etc? I’m sure it becomes apparent once you've through the process once. I don’t want to learn that way.
So to get right to it, does anyone have a generic screen size that works for them without doing passes through others? Or, is there a sequential set of mesh sizes that will usually provide good product (i.e. - 190->90->75, etc)? I’m not looking to make something that I have to give away because it’s weak, but I don’t need to produce the tar everyone is talking about either (not that that would be possible with just “okay” weed).
