  • my buds just went through the washing machine. I’ve been trying to ration out my shit lately to save some money. and no I don’t want to quit. I was planning on making my stash last another couple weeks. but whatever.

    I hate throwing weed out though.

    Should I wait for it to dry, then smoke it as I normally would. or is that not worth it?

    Should I maybe eat it. cook it up in something. I was thinking of just making some quick fire crackers. Never really cooked weed before. Never have enough to make it worth. I don’t grow. I only buy. and prices are whack usually.

    also, when eating weed. how long does it take for the effects to set in. 15-20 minutes. or is it closer to an hour?

    Thanks for the help.

  • ^ +1. sorta. my mom is a total hippie so the shit in our washer does basically nothing and probably not a single chemical in it. but the texture/consistency of the bud was fucked and it tasted really stale or something. high was slightly less but not enough to ruuin the high totally.

    what kind of container was it in?

    baked weed can take 45min-2hrs to hit me depending on how full my tummy already is and what quality/quantity of bud i put in

  • If it was in an airtight baggie, and you can confirm that no water got in, then sure, give it a try.

    If the buds got wet, don’t try. You don’t want to be smoking the laundry chemicals.

    It’s just cannabis man, take a bit of a break and buy some when you get a bit of change going.

  • Unless you’re an uber-hippy/environmentalist who washes with white vinegar and water, you’re unlikely to be able to smoke that weed.

    If you used Calico-n-Creme™ super-scented Agent Orange detergent, it may be difficult to rinse away enough of the chemicals to make it safe for cooking, but considering many people wash their weed when it’s drenched in pesticide, it might work. But if you wash with organic, no additive, no fragrance detergent I’m pretty sure you can salvage that weed for cooking. At any rate, cooking seems safest and easiest.

    As I understand it, when you wash your weed, you’ll lose a lot of the flavor and fragrance, and I think, most of the green from the chlorophyll, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing for kitchen weed. So maybe check out the thread Huaca mentioned. There’s a lot of back and forth unrelated to your topic, but you might find some tips for washing. The only thing I would worry about it is drying it properly to avoid mold growth.

    When eating weed, the onset of the high can take up to 2 hours. I once waited 2.5 or 3 hours because the weed sweets were the dessert course at an 8-small course Moroccan-themed brunch. Digression: We made two different cannabis sweets: my friend made a delicate, light, crunchy, spicey (cayenne, cinnamon, cardamom, allspice, orange peel, turmeric) cookie and I made a pistachio baklava with canabutter. Pistachio and weed go together well. Mmmm. That was an incredibly fun day. 8 hours in the sun, finger-, brush-, drip-, spray-painting the extensive, broken-down fence around the yard. Lots of musicians, so live deranged music all day. Just trying to inspire you for when your salvaged, edible weed will be consumed.

    I’m guessing you’ve eaten it before but just in case, the high is more intense, lasts longer (6-8 hours sometimes) and it guarantees lovely sleep. Once you experiment a little with dosages, you can find a dose that doesn’t get you super-high (unless that’s your goal), and that lasts about 2-3 hours.

    thread digression: cooking suggestion

    I don’t know how much weed you have. If it’s a fair amount, you may want to make clarified butter, then throw the weed into that and extract the THC. You will be left with a large chunk of clarified canabutter, which if you’ve prepared it correctly will last you for up to a couple of years. (The critical part is making sure to remove ALL milk solids from the butter while clarifying.)

    I have a 2 year old container in the freezer that has lost some potency. (That’s not a problem with this batch since we made it so strong that a dime sized piece would give us a strong high for 2-3 hours. The first time we tried it to test for strength, we dosed very conservatively and ended up high as FUCK for about 8 hours.) But most importantly, it has not become rancid or freezer-burned. I’ve had it in there so long since it’s so strong, and because I don’t get high very often anymore… Just in case you were wondering why anyone in her right mind would leave lovely canabutter like that uneaten for so long. It’s a fair question.

    We used extremely powerful, fragrant and tasty organically-grown, outdoor Mendocino buds to achieve the potency. We wanted to make it as strong as possible in order to use it in a wider range of recipes or so that we could just swallow a tiny piece and be ready to go. Canabutter is really versatile and it’s my favorite way of preparing weed for ingestion. We usually use shake but this was a special experiment and I’m assuming that you have buds too.

    Washing Machine Hash

    On a recent trip to the tropical region of Colombia, 1 was able to record how expert grower friends made hash in volume. They learned this technology from Mila. This informa-

    Here are the different grades of hash from two runs using 14 bags.

    The hash labeled with black letters is first run. Red numbers signify second run.

    tion is very useful to process the leaf that is left over after the harvest. Using an everyday washing machine will save hours of labor. Following all the steps and paying attention to the water temperature in this simple process will extract all remaining cannabinoids from the leaves.

    The best bet is to purchase the proper bags that have been tested. Mila and other manufacturers make different bags for outdoor and indoor crops. Plants grown outdoors have smaller resin heads than plants grown indoors and require a smaller mesh bag to collect the resin.

    A washing machine filled with cold water is used to agitate the leaf and glands that are located inside of a zipped silkscreen Ice-O-Lator bag. This process separates the resin glands from the green leafy material. Once separated,

    The second test of purity is the amount and color of the washing machine filled with cold water and ash after the burn. White and clean-pure!

    Let’s see what happens to this wafer of fresh hash when we apply a little flame.

    Once pressed quickly by hand, the hash is ready to smoke. We tossed it into a bong on top of a stainless steel screen.

    Drain the hash-laden water and strain through an Ice-O-Lator bag.

    Remove large Ice-O-Lator bag from the container.

    Turn the machine on and let it agitate for 12 minutes to knock loose and separate resin glands from foliage.

    Squeeze excess water from the large Ice-O-Lator bag.

    Make sure to include plenty of ice so the mix stays below A If (5″C).

    Turn the machine on and let it agitate for 12 minutes to knock loose and separate resin glands from foliage.

    Squeeze excess water from the large Ice-O-Lator bag.

    Dry the wet resin. Once dry, Colombian hash makers rolled and pressed the hash into a beautiful ball.

    resin glands fall through the sieve into the washing machine water. The leafy material stays inside the bag. The hash-laden water is evacuated out the washing machine’s drain hose and separated from the water in a simple filtering process,

    The machine is filled with ice and ice-cold water. Cold water is used to keep the resin glands intact and facilitate separation from the leaf. The principle is simple. Resin is oil-based and leaf is water-based.

    First, the Colombians place paper bags of 500 grams of leaf in the freezer for one and a half hours. Cold temperatures make the leaves brittle, which allows them to easily separate from the resin glands,

    Next, the two, one-pound (450 gm) bags of the cold leaves are loaded into a zipped Ice-O-Lator bag. The drum of the washing machine is filled with very cold water. Chunks of ice the size of your fist are added to the water until the desired temperature of 41 °F (5°C) is achieved.

    Two zipped Ice-O-Lator bags are loaded into the drum and the machine turned on to agitate for 10-12 minutes. Two bags are used to keep the machine in balance. As the machine agitates the bags, resin glands slip out through the mesh of the bags into the water.

    ASH & OIL MAKING

    the resin-laden water out the drain. The drain water is sifted through an Ice-O-Lator bag to remove any remaining leaf. The water is collected in a larger bag placed in a large container. Once all the water is evacuated, they lift the large bag from the container. The “clean” water flowed out the sieve in the bottom of the big bag, and the wet resin stayed in the big bag. They squeeze the last of the water by hand out of the big Ice-O-Lator bag and the resulting impressed hash is set out to dry. Every one-kilo bag of leaves yields 30-40 grams of dried resin. In a single 14-hour day they can process 100 kilos of leaf and transform it into three kilos of quality resin that is later pressed into hash.
