You’re excited to learn how to make dry ice hash, and we're excited to guide you through the process. The sheer power and quality of dry ice hash will make you question your prior dry herb vaping decisions. Here we present a step-by-step guide on how to create quality dry ice hash, which shall induce smooth and superb highs. Let’s dive in!


First, let’s begin with the basics. There are many different types of hash, made by using various different methods. Hash is a cannabis concentrate, which is produced with or without solvents. The dry ice method creates a solventless hash, because no substances are used to chemically extract the cannabinoids from the plant. Solventless hash is always considered a “purer” product, because no chemicals were involved in the process.

Dry Ice Method


    1. The first step of making dry ice hash is getting some dry ice. You can purchase it in a supermarket, if not, just google “where to buy dry ice” in the language of your residence. Dry ice is very cold, it measures approximately -78.5°C. You’ll need to purchase some thick gloves for handling dry ice. Never touch dry ice with your bare skin! Next on the shopping list is a mesh bag, a specially designed sifting bag for making dry ice hash. Just search for “dry ice extraction bags”, that's what you need. They differ in their design, however, the most important part is their mesh, basically how small the "sifting holes" are. The less micron, the higher quality hash shall be produced. A 73-micron bag will produce golden high-quality kief (resin in powder form, which is used to make hash). A 160-micron bag will include slightly more plant material in the kief mix, but will still result in high-quality hash. Some sift bags are sealed on the sides, while some allow the sifting all the way throughout the bag. For more control, the former one is advised. Also, buy a plastic container in which you'll be able to shake the mesh bag in comfort. You could do the sifting on any dry and flat surface, however, you don't want the kief dusting outside of your designated area. Also, purchase a pollen press for turning the kief into a compact hash piece. Once all the equipment is purchased and set up, it's time to make some dry ice hash!

    1. Place the plant material, trimmings and/or buds, into the mesh bag, put on your gloves, and place the dry ice pieces into the bag. You might want to crush the dry ice with a hammer and insert smaller pieces for logistical purposes and to improve the cooling process. When the dry ice and plant material are in contact, it slightly freezes the plant, the trichomes become very brittle, and easily detach from the plant, that’s why the dry ice is necessary. Now, hold the mesh bag with your hands over the plastic container or a flat and smooth surface from which you can easily collect the kief.

    1. Start shaking the bag with control, you’ll notice golden powder sprinkling on the surface – that's your precious kief! Shake the bag for 10 seconds, wait for 5 seconds, start shaking again, and repeat. This will allow the cold to spread more evenly. Once there's no more kief coming out, place all the material into a second mesh bag with a bigger mesh size, and repeat the shaking process. You can separate the kief coming from different mesh bags, or you can mix everything together, it's your choice.

    Dry Ice Hash Kief

    Whatever you do, don’t have any air circulation going in the area where you’re extracting kief, otherwise, the kief will blow into the air and all over the room!

    1. Once you’ve scraped the kief with a credit card or similar tool, collect it wherever you see fit. You could skip the hash-making stage, and sprinkle some of that kief into a joint and make it exponentially more potent. But be patient, and finalize the process by turning kief into dry ice hash – we believe in you.
    1. Place the kief in the Pollen Press, close the lid, tighten the press, and you shall receive nice small blocks of high-quality dry ice hash! So, there you have it, folks. Make sure to organize every step beforehand to ensure a successful extraction. We hope that this guide has provided you with all the information necessary to create some killer dry ice hash!
