What Is Bubble Hash?

If you’re new to the world of cannabis then you’ve likely run into a lot of confusing jargon like trichomes, cannabinoids, solventless rosin and bubble hash, for example. So, in order to clear up the sometimes obscure terminology surrounding weed, let’s explore another cannabis fundamental by answering the question: What is bubble hash?

What Is Bubble Hash?

Bubble hash is a new form of hashish, and like tradicional hash it's a concentrated form of cannabis. Bubble hash is made with the use of the ice water extraction technique, which involves submerging cannabis flower in ice cold water, and then agitating it to release its resins. These cannabis resins, or “trichomes” are collected with the use of fine filter meshes, and then dried to produce some of the highest quality hash imaginable.

Bubble Hash vs Hash

But what’s the difference between bubble hash and regular hash? Traditionally hashish is made by dry-sifting cannabis flowers. This involves tossing buds around over a mesh screen, and collecting dry trichomes into a powder which is pressed into blocks. It's a tried and true technique which can be used to produce some quality hash. However, due to the large amount of impurities and plant materials that tend to be collected in traditional hash making, there’s a limit to the outright quality that can be produced. Bubble hash, on the other hand, takes the concept much further with a laboratory grade approach.

Bubble Hash Potency

One of the greatest strengths of bubble hash is its potency and purity. Thanks to the level of refinement of the technique, very little if any green plant materials are collected along with the trichomes, and this results in a purer hashish than would otherwise be possible. Furthermore, bubble hash itself can come in a range of qualities, and is further graded with a five star quality system. 

Bubble Hash Mesh Size

The real key to top level bubble hash is the use of micron filter bags. In fact, ice water extraction makes use of multiple filter bags with differing mesh sizes. This allows the cannabis trichomes to be further graded, meaning hash makers can cream off the very best trichomes to create a hashish of unparalleled purity and strength.

Bubble Hash vs Rosin

Both “bubble hash” and “solventless rosin” are cannabis concentrates and you’ll frequently hear the terms paired together. This is because more often than not, rosin is actually made from bubble hash. In fact, rosin made from high grade bubble hash tends to be next level itself, and creates a much more potent and pure concentrate than when it’s made from cannabis buds.   So, hopefully that clears up any misunderstandings you were having about bubble hash, and be sure to join us in the future for more cannabis fundamentals.

How Many Cheeba Chews Should You Start With?

How Many Cheeba Chews Should You Start With?

Cheeba Chews is an edible brand that needs very little introduction. We can remember when they were making a big buzz in Colorado as one of the hottest (if not the hottest) edible on the market years ago and they’ve only risen in popularity since, expanding to now be available in 5 states. One of the reasons Cheeba Chews have stood the test of time is their uncompromising quality which lends itself to their renowned potency. You never want to underestimate cannabis edibles but that rule goes double for Cheeba Chews. Most people can gauge our edibles responsibly, but there are occasionally self-professed heavy smokers who start out too strong and end up with a much heavier experience than they were anticipating. Yet, for every 9 people we meet that overestimate their tolerance, there’s one who swears they started with something like 5 pieces and didn’t feel anything. So today we’re going to break down a comfortable way to get acclimated to Cheeba Chews (and other cannabis edibles for that matter) without actually biting off more than you can chew. 

Cannabis Edibles with Precision Dosage

Cheeba Chews (not to mention Green Hornet cannabis gummies) are designed with the intent of easy dosage measurement. In the days of DIY cannabis edibles (not to say those days are completely behind us), there was an element of chance to a pan of pot brownies. Even if the cannabis was evenly distributed throughout the mix, it was tough to gauge the potency of the finished batch until it was already in our systems. And for some of us, that was too late. We were already on the Gravitron with no way off. But with Cheeba Chews, we’ve got the formula down to a science. You know for sure that each square packs 10mg of THC… no more, no less. Now, some of you may be afraid 10mg is still too much for your tolerance but when you start breaking down the individual 10mg squares, the actual mg count gets a bit more difficult to measure with confident accuracy. For those people, we’d recommend the Cheeba Chews wellness option which allows you to easily microdose in pre-portioned 5mg increments. Green Hornet also just released their trifecta gummy cannabis edibles that each contain 10mg THC, 10mg CBD and 10mg CBG for a more balanced effect. 

Start Low and Build as You Go

We recommend starting low and working your way up in 10mg increments. In our experience, even heavy cannabis users can feel a solid psychoactive impact with just 2 pieces of 10mg Cheeba Chews squares, especially if they’re unversed in how edibles work with their personal body chemistry. It can be tempting to underestimate these doses, especially since the measurements are so clearly defined, but keep in mind that cannabis edibles affect the body differently than when THC is smoked or vaped. The activation takes significantly longer but the effects typically sustain for a longer period of time as well. And most people will tell you it’s a different experience altogether. With Cheeba Chews available in indica, sativa and hybrid varieties, the type you choose can also impact your psychoactive response.


Minimal Effects After Several Cheeba Chews

In very rare circumstances, we’ve been contacted by customers who popped several 10mg Cheeba Chews pieces over a period of an hour or two but only felt the slightest effects. If you find yourself in this situation, we recommend reviewing what you’ve eaten prior to having your Cheeba Chews. There’s not one solution that works for everyone in this circumstance, but we’ve seen stronger effects when Cheeba Chews are consumed on an empty stomach. We’ve also heard that some users felt stronger effects from eating a snack heavy in fats (think peanut butter, olive oil, etc.) about 45 minutes prior to eating their Cheeba Chews. Again, most people can enjoy Cheeba Chews without needing to strategize, but if you’re not having as strong of an experience as you’d expect from cannabis edibles, experimenting with the conditions in which you’re consuming them can be rewarding. 

Whether you’re looking to become one with your couch or want an easily measurable microdose, Cheeba Chews can be your perfect introduction to cannabis edibles. But a miscalculated introduction to edibles can be enough to scare away even heavy cannabis users. Starting low and building as you go will help you to have the kind of experience that’s made Cheeba Chews such a renowned brand in the cannabis community. Chews wisely!
