Anyone ever made shatter with hash?

    Hi all, so I have heard of some close to blonde hash (light in colour, not quite as light as just pressed kief so I suspect some thermal pressing has taken place) at a very agreeable price.

    I am told it is from THC Bomb buds, the same as what currently makes shatter around these parts. I am thinking that if the hash is high quality, it should be a very cost effective substitute for buds in my runs, with higher yields from less material.

    My question is, have any of you ever done this, and were the yields significantly higher? Would I get more shatter from a half oz of good hash than I would from an oz of good buds?

    yeah dude, i reconcentrate bubble hash and kief all the time. yields should be higher than bud if the hash is any good. the taste and effect will be different because your starting material is totally different than bud or trim. the best i can describe the difference simply is that it is more "hashy." you'll get a lot fewer terpenes than you are used to. of course you could always blow a little nug and mix the results with your bubble shatter for added flavor and to alter the high a bit. i'm too sober to rant about this right now, haha i might edit this post when i get home and dab myself up.

    from a half oz of hash you will likely get a good 90% return on that, however you will be sacrificing that golden color your used too... the benefits I see are that you will end up with a more complete extracrion.... but because of the material being cured hash it will most likely be very seditive couch lock.... so with buds you can taylor the extraction better... but with hash you get better yield but with less effects control.

    I made some oil out of Moroccan hash, quite hard pressed. I used ten grams in an extractor tube with marbles to fill space. I reckon you'd get a higher yield with bubble or kief but the taste of these dabs!! It was like the essence of traditional hash, highly recommended.

    I believe this is just pressed kier, with a slight bit of heat to stick it together (but not enough to decarb). So it will taste better then, given that the hash tastes better than the flowers? Have you made some amber shatter with hash? Has anyone? Please post pics?

    Wow, really 90%? Will it be shatter still? Surely I could just do a shorter wash to get the golden colour? I imagine hash would clog up coffee filters once mixed with a solvent, this would mean that it would be hard to keep wash times short (due to extra time where solvent and hash are combined as the hash clogs the filter and slows the draining of the solvent)? Damn, if I get 50% yield from 14g, I am over the moon!

    Did you break up the hash, or just run it whole? Did you get shatter, or just goop? I want to be getting shatter here lol

    I powdered it first, the oil wasn't fully shatter, it didn't have that brittleness about it, though it was a very clear amber and looked gorgeous. I don't have a vac pump and it was a pretty poor heat purge though.
    Didn't stop it being oh so ludicrously tasty.

    as for color I really cant say for sure it would depend on the age of the hash.

    its likely not going go be green unless the hash is green... it will likely be dark... but you will not be unhappy with results... you should be able to get it to shatter at least a pull and snap... tge filtering process speed shouldnt be so bad for you using iso shouldnt be a rush unless the hash is green before you start extracrion...
