What Is Hash Oil
It's a thick, potent oil made from hashish. It can be made by heating
and pressing hash to release the oil. (Same process can be used to make
hash from marijuana, but carried to an extreme.)
It usually becomes available in England and parts of Canada for short
periods of time every so often, but it is harder to find in most parts of
the US. It commonly sold in 1 gram to 5 gram vials made of glass or
It's very thick, and sticks to everything. It ruins clothes; the only
thing that will take it off your skin or counter tops is denatured alcohol
or a similar solvent. The stickiest shit I have ever seen. And I have seen
some pretty sticky stuff.
The buzz is very relaxing, almost paralyzing.
How Is Hash Oil Used
The most common method of smoking it I've seen is to
use the clear plastic tube that is the body of a bic disposable pen. Pull
out the end cap, and pull out the ink/ball-point thingy. Result: a clear
Then, use something that won't burn or melt, like a pin, straight part
of a paper clip, jewelers screw driver, or something similar to dip in the
oil. What you want to do is just get a little oil on the bottom 1/8 inch,
or so, of whatever it is that you are using.
Heat the oil on the pin or whatever you used by holding it over the
burning part of a lit joint without letting them touch. In a few seconds
the oil will drop onto the burning joint and burn. Hold the end of the
tube above the joint and suck in the smoke.
After a few tries you will be able to determine how much oil to use
without letting any go to waste.
For a nicer piece of equipment, take an old
tablespoon. Bend the handle so that the handle bends away from the bowl,
and then back so that it is pointing up away from the bowl.
Attach the same pen tube to the handle, with some tape, so that the
tube points down into the bowl of the spoon. Smear oil into bowl of spoon,
and heat spoon from bottom. (This only takes two hands.)
Another technique, if you roll your own cigarettes, is
to smear a streak of oil on a cigarette paper, and then roll a cigarette
with this paper. Better still, roll it with some herb.
Vapor method: put an old knife on a stove burner (use
an electric stove; use a gas job at your own risk). Let it get nice and
hot (red hot isn't too hot, but of course you don't wanna deform the
knife). Get a paper towel tube or similar-size tube and gather everyone
Use an instrument like the one discussed above, to get a little dab of
oil, stand ready with the tube, press the screwdriver against the hot
blade and suck.
Don't take too much; it's got incredible expand properties. The stuff
will smoke uncontrollably till it's gone, so make sure everyone gets in
their suck without letting too much go to waste (it's good if everyone has
their own tube).
Another good way to smoke it is to put a drop into the
weed in a pipe. However you do it, take small hits. The stuff is lethal on
To get the most bang for your buck, put about 10 grams
in a 13x7" brownie pan with your favorite brownie recipe. Be sure to
mixed the oil in well. Cut into ~1.25" squares. If you do it like
this, you will get about 50 squares. If you pay $350 for 10 grams of oil,
the cost of a square will be $7.
Eat one and have a wonderful night (sex is highly recommended). Eat two
and become part of your favorite couch for 5 hours or so. Eat 5 or 6 and
find out what heroin's like without having to mess with needles.
How To Buy Hash Oil
Do not buy hash oil that is black in color, it might be weed oil. Weed
oil is shit and should cost less than weed, the buzz is of very short
There is very good hash oil that is dark in color, but the lighter the
color, the more refined and potent it is.
Try to buy stuff that looks like honey, "honey oil" it should
have a semi-appealing smell, not as good a smell as hash though.
If in doubt, buy a small amount, a gram or less. Three tokes should get
you off, for a really good 30 minute buzz. If you are not sure, it's not
hash oil, don't buy anymore.

MAKING HASH OIL OR HONEY OIL FROM YOUR
LEAF AND A FEW COMMON HOUSEHOLD UTENSILS
There has been much controversy as of late as to
the most effective methods of administrating medical marijuana. The
questionable report published by the 1500 physician members of the PSFC
has awakened public awareness as to the possible potential dangers of
smoking Medical Marijuana. Of critical import to these persons was the
obvious delusionary unsubstantiated transferal of the tobacco tar ratios
vs. cancer rates of tobacco smokers into the realm of the tar
ratio/cancer rates of medical marijuana smokers. In their ill
preparedness they hastily neglect to mention the absence of even a
single solitary death from cancer being attributed to marijuana smoking
and the tars thereof. Notwithstanding the evidence that a small town
dies in America every year from Tobacco smoke, the primary point to
remember, NONE from marijuana, ever. Of course in all medical
therapeutic pharmacopoeia there is a harm reduction principle that must
be addressed, and with medical marijuana it is no different than other
medications. Morphine, percodan , amyl nitrate, acetaminophen, all have
safe measured dosage and potentially dangerous side effects. To not seek
alternative methods of effective treatment using medical marijuana would
be contrary to the development of this sacred medicine as a whole, and
detrimental to physicians in their conscientious treatment of patients.
I personally believe that the person being treated has to ultimately,
armed with as complete as an informed picture as they may obtain, make
the decision as to the treatment regime that is suggested and/or
instituted by their practitioner.
To this end I address the issue of medical marijuana
consumption by smoking and offer a palatable alternative to the tar
ratios so hyped upon by the general masses as an issue of safety vs.
efficacy. The following method described will allow you to refine your
leaf or your prized flowering tops into a resinous, gooey substance that
delivers huge medical benefits. As well your conscience can rest easy
with a warm fuzzy feeling all over, knowing that your tar levels are
being kept to a bare minimum during inhalation of your medical
marijuana. The following procedure should not be undertaken without
serious study and following all normal adult precautions. This means if
you are not adult do not try this at home, or home alone.
The amount of honey oil produced on first glance may seem a little
discouraging. Take Heart Though. Medical Marijuana can vary in THC
content from 0.5% for low grade leaf to over 25% for high potency
medicine, but on average the normal quality material is in the 5-10%
range. With optimal conditions, it is possible to refine approximately
one gram of Honey oil from each ounce of low-grade leaf and between 3
and 5 grams of Honey oil from each ounce of high-grade flowering tops.
The enormous advantage of this technique is that it transforms leaf from
a generally undesirable form into a consumable, superior medicine. This
Honey Oil is more appropriate for medical use by :
A: Separating the questionable tars and ash-producing fiber from the
desired medical constituents.
B: Eliminating the amount of non-medical ingredients e.g. plant
fibers, tars, resins, which are normally inhaled when medicating, to
virtually nil, which logically reduces and minimizes exposure of the
lungs to compromising and potentially hazardous conditions.
C: Effectively lowers the amount of medication needed to ingest
during disorder treatment/management due to its highly concentrated
nature and overall superior medical efficacy thereof.
D: Can substantially lower the cost of self-medicating for section 56
exemptees as well as those not yet approved. Many Section 56 Exemptees
are too ill to maintain a quality medical marijuana garden, and/or are
too financially strained to expend startup costs estimated in the
thousands for medicine the government cannot deliver.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO THIS:
This method has its origins from an industrial extraction method
known as Supercritical Fluid Extraction. You can use over-the-counter
butane gas (6-8 oz can, Canadian Tire as the solvent/distillate, and
requires nothing more than Copper tubing and ends. The Copper pipe
consists of a section one and a half feet long by 1&3/4-inch
diameter, and two copper end caps. Butane "unofficially", is
said to be superior at isolating and distilling the desirable components
of the medical marijuana, extracting only a beautiful amber "honey
oil" and leaving the undesirable and potentially unhealthy
vegetative oils, waxes, chlorophyll, etc behind in the fibrous plant
matter. Even unsmokable shade leaves will produce potent honey oil with
this technique. It would only be logical to deduce that the better grade
of Sacred herb you refine, the better the resulting Oil
So here is your list of necessary ingredients
1. Can of butane 8 oz.
2. One and a half feet of copper pipe, one-inch minimum diameter, as
well as two copper end caps of appropriate size.
3. A vessel that can hold the liquid product during synthesis.
Beakers are perfect. A glass tumbler will do in a pinch.
4: A coat hanger can be bent into shape to accommodate the copper
tube as a stand for it during the distillation process. This is a good
idea to prevent frostbite. The copper gets REAL COLD.
5. A oven mitt or towel to hold copper tube during activation process
6. A well ventilated room or garage with Fans.
THE HONEY OIL RECIPE
- In one of the copper end caps, drill a single small hole in the
center. This hole should be sized to tightly receive the spray
nozzle of your butane can.(1/8" bit)
- In the other end cap, drill 6 or 8 small holes clustered in the
center of the cap.
- After putting a piece of coffee filter inside for filtration,
across the bottom, put the end cap with several holes on that end of
the pipe. Push it on there real tight. This is now officially, the
- Fill the chamber up with marijuana that has been pureed into as
fine as possible powder. The object is to fill the chamber without
making it so dense as to restrict the drainage of the butane after
- Place the top end cap on the pipe. Again, push it on as securely
as you can by hand.
- Find a location outdoors with a decent breeze or turn your fans on
full in your room/garage. You want the butane fumes to be dissipated
as quickly as possible with minimum exposure.
- Mount the pipe (single hole-side up) over the glass receiving
vessel. Using a coat hanger or a regular shop clamp if it's all you
have, anything that can hold it sturdy is good. (Avoid metal if you
can, thereby reducing the chance of spark.) Position the bottom end
of the copper pipe as close to if not inside the glass-receiving
vessel to eliminate spillage and loss.
- Turn the butane gas can upside down and inject the gas into the
copper tubing (chamber) via the single top hole you drilled in it. A
whole 8 oz can takes about 30-45 seconds to empty. Be EXTRA Careful.
A spark at this moment would spell explosion since you have
basically created a leaking incendiary explosive device (read ouch)
- When the butane can has completely emptied into the chamber, place
it off at a nice distance and let nature do its thing.
What happens next is that the butane gradually moves down the
pipe, distilling the marijuana resins as it goes. After it distills
through the marijuana, it begins to drain into the receiving vessel,
our glass bowl. You should clearly see the pale, yellow-green-gold
hue of the extract. It is easily seen that no chlorophyll or other
non-medical substances were distilled out of the Marijuana, just
pure unadulterated medicine.
Over the next 10 minutes, the butane/cannabis oil mixture will
finish draining from the copper pipe into the glass receiving
vessel. Exercise EXTREME CAUTION when handling the pipe since there
is still lots of resin/butane mixture evaporating from within the
copper chamber (careful examination and you can see the stream of
fumes coming from the top hole). When it slows down to a drop every
few seconds, you can tap on the top hole and it will help force the
last of the liquid mixture out. Remember, NO SMOKING, yet.
Being a very low-boil, high-volatile type of substance that it is,
the butane begins boiling/evaporating at ambient (room) temperature.
You'll see the receiving vessel begin to frost up as the butane
cools it down. This however, is detrimental to the process as it is
slowing down the rate of necessary evaporation. Restoring
evaporation is as easy as setting the glass container in a saucepan
containing a few inches of warm water. You should see the butane
start bubbling with the increase in temperature, do not panic as it
is part of the process. Again, the best place to be doing this is
outdoors with a nice breeze, but a well-ventilated garage with a fan
or two will do in a pinch. It takes 20 minutes or more for the
butane to evaporate sufficiently. Your end product should be a thick
liquid with a deep amber, almost gold colour of amazing purity and
awesome medical efficacy.
A great method for collecting the Honey oil is after all of the
butane evaporates off, then redistill the oil in some high-% alcohol
minimum 90%, 100% preferred. Then carefully pour this into a vial
and let it sit out for 24 hours or so to allow the alcohol to fully
evaporate. Trying to transfer the oil into a small container while
it is still solvated by the butane is risky at best. If you can get
pure or 99% isopropyl, use it, because THC's does not evaporate in
The final medicine is deep golden-amber Honey oil of the highest
quality, supremely pure and potent. This method extracts only the
prized medicinal ingredients and leaves the undesirables in the
marijuana fiber. By refining and processing our medicines, we are
setting a precedent as well as facilitating a principle of harm
reduction that is paramount to all persons who are subject to
self-medicating, especially those participating in the Federal
Health Canada Exemption program for Medical Marijuana.
Those who prefer a tincture-like preparation you can dilute this
medicine with a bit of warm high-percentage, minimum 90% alcohol,
then use topically on arthritic limbs and the like. Or mixed with a
petroleum gel it can be used as an ointment or salve as required.
Another boon is the use of the Honey oil as an additive to
foodstuffs. Simply add to warm sauces or soups before serving. There
are even tales of Jams and Marmalades, and Tasty too. In all
preparations with medical marijuana, remember the 200-degree rule,
at 200 degrees THC begins to evaporate, and loses medical efficacy
thereafter. I hope all who try this preparation technique will be
blessed with wisdom in their application of such knowledge and
responsibility through their use of knowledge for the benefit of
A Few Important Tips: Besides NO SMOKING
- Coffee filters, fine clothe and even paper towel to
attach to the bottom of the tube all seem to work just fine.
- Scrape all you can from your glass container, then use some
Isopropyl (min 90%) to get the remainder, then boil that off over
very low heat, less than 200 degrees is necessary to avoid THC
- Let the oil sit over something warm, e.g. Floor heater or warming
plate for 3 hours as some of the butane may still be left behind.
Leaving it warm until it stops bubbling is necessary
- Try to do the butane injection into the tube outdoors, then bring
in the dish to finish evaporating. There is very little odour but
remember that Butane is a combustible substance so all precautions
must be taken to avoid open flame.
- Make sure you clean the copper tube very well as it can corrode if
left dirty over a long period of time. There is no interaction
between the butane and copper so you don't have to worry about any
copper residue in the final product.
- Make the holes at the bottom of the tube small. Smaller than the
top one by about half.
- Around 2 minutes after the butane has emptied, remove the butane
can and blow into the copper chamber to force the last little bit of
prized golden liquid out.
- DO Not, I repeat DO NOT USE camping butane, some brands mix in a
chemical that gives off an odour to detect leaks and other brands
even put poisonous chemicals into it to deter drug manufacturers.
- . A tube can hold approximately 1 oz of finely chopped tops or
shake (stems too). It is highly recommended that you use a coffee
grinder, bud-buster, or blender to chop the marijuana as fine as
possible to ensure maximum distillation and proportionate exposure
during injection, and you want to fill the tube within an inch of
the top. Don't pack the marijuana in tightly, but you don't want any
air pockets in the chamber either.
- Try to use at least a 8oz can of butane. Some good folks tried the
following butanes, Ronson, Colibri and Lite-it. Reportedly Ronson
worked good , but Colibri says its 99% free of impurities and in
medicine we don't want any leftover butane residues or impurities in
the final medicines. The other brand was horrible, it left a weird
taste to the oil so was never heard from again.
- Try to slowly release the butane into the copper tube, the slower
the release of the butane, the longer the interaction between the
marijuana and butane and the more THC is distilled, the more quality
the medicine has. Also don't remove the can of butane from the tube
until a minute or two after it's finished and emptied. A steady
pressure must be maintained to help push the Honey oil through the
- It takes a whole 6 oz can of butane for about 1/2 of a vial of
Honey oil (1 vial = 1gram) but you can use the marijuana in the
chamber tube a second time. Simply remove the shake out of the
chamber and refill it and use another 6oz can. Smaller cans do not
work. Don't even attempt, it there will be no fluid to drain out, it
won't even make it to the bottom and will just sit in the tube.
- You can expect to get about 1gram of Honey oil for every 1oz of
low-grade shake and 12oz of butane. The Amount and color of the oil
varies due to amount of THC in the marijuana your using.
