    you best get growing and hording. :myday:

    If you brought a Vapcap tip and cap to anywhere remotely near the extreme temps needed to off gas, (read welding), you might burn your lips...:doh:

    Edit: Oh, and you should seriously consider eye protection as well.

    I cant give you a very good answer to be honest. Being UK based access to clean hash has been severly limited all my life, and my allergies have prevented me from being able to source any ganja away from home since 2005.

    All I know is I have been familiar with a particular type of Morrocan hash over the years simply known as "Pollen".
    I don't know how it is made, where exactly it comes from, and what exactly differentiates it from other types of hashhish.

    The one I tried in my Omni is gone now. It the typical light yellow, pressed bar but soft and crumbly. I have one now that is totally different, called "Caramello egg". It is dark, oily and squidgy like Black. And sticky as fuck! A nightmare to "work" with lol;). Comes wrapped in about 30 layers of clingfilm (for transit sake) and has to be frozen just to get it out, then into greeseproof paper.

    Just scooped up a quick word from random forum. I would have learnt more about it ages ago if it wasn't just another tease:


    "Pollen dont burn,crumble or taste even smoke like hash,if you didnt know any the wiser you would SWEAR you were smoking some real good bud,thats the difference between hash and pollen,basically the best of the plant is 'extracted' and pressed and cultivated into 'quality' pollen..put it this way pollen sells for double the price of hash round here which is the equivalent to the price of good weed like original blueberry, white widow,ect.

    Pollen is resin made in India,Morrocco even the United Kingdom, generally of higher quality than 'red seal Black' hashish, and appears in soft, pliable or hard, almost brittle, form. It can appear in slabs, or moulded into various shapes. Typically 12%-17% THC

    Pollen is superior quality to for instance Moroccan hashish, normally in round 9oz blocks. Similar in appearance to Lebanese( light and fluffs up/expands when burnt) , but of MUCH higher potency,it represents earlier 'shakes' than used to produce soap-bars, and the resin is of softer texture. Typically 10-15%% THC".

    Pollon and kief
    They're called kief, also known as dry sift or pollen. Kief refers to the resin glands which contain the terpenes and cannabinoids that make cannabis so unique. While marijuana sans kief still contains cannabinoids, the resin glands that develop on flower buds pack the biggest punch.

    So it is not really pollen in the pot world it is kief. When it comes to a substance mj pollen and kief are synonymous.

    pollen is simply kief...nothing more, nothing less...pressed or unpressed it is kief

    true cannabis pollen would be collected from male plants but has no psychoactive properties

    Thanks guys I knew it was a case of simple semantics. The darker, squidgy "Carramello egg"- that was also sold to me as pollen, but is not like kief at all. A totally different process for that one.

    From my experience kief can look from a creamy blonde, a light green, amber, and lower grade darker greens.....

    No, I meant to clarify pollen is not simply pressed kief.

    Pressed or unpressed we are talking about the same shit >>> kief

    Of course. I have several grams of both sitting right next to me.

    I was just letting him know a more common term for what he has.

    Couldn't agree more, I'd keep my Sticky Brick Jr. So much power in such a small package, also I'm a sucker for wood and glass.

    Well...I see the loose stuff more which I also happen to prefer. I don't see much pressed kief and I usually ignore it when I do (I know). Very nice color and consistency to your pollen. I wish I could swap you samples. Yummy!

    Is pressed kief harsher than pressed hash?

    either can be harsh...many variables

    My kief is never harsh. It is smooth like butter.

    Pressing the kief is what turns it into hash. At least one of the main varieties of hash. The other being handrubbed charas.

    I guess I sound have been more specific. I meant in what way is uncooked vs cooked hash different. I've only ever had this paka Garda and dynavap condenser hash.

    So true but the last time I had male flowers it gave me a headache. But we should look at the cannabis plant like the native americans looked at the buffalo and use every part of the plant we possibly can.
