How To Make Ice Hash
Category: Concentrates | Posted on Tue, November, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
Ice extracts are a much safer way to obtain highly concentrated THC, rather than the "easier" butane method. Ice hash is clean and earthy, definitely something every stoner should try at some point. It's not as difficult to make as some people think. Here's a step by step tutorial on how to make ice hash yourself and get a good yield of some serious fire.
What You Need;
3/4oz marijuana (can be gross shake or high quality bud, either will work)
1/2 gallon milk jug
First, take the bud and put it in the coffee grinder, turning it in to a powder. Don't try to put all of it in at once. Grinding about 7 grams at a time usually works pretty well. Once all of the marijuana is ground up, carefully pour it in. Use a funnel of some sort to make sure that you get all of it. Then, take about 7-8 ice cubes and place them on a washcloth. Fold the top of the washcloth over and hit the cubes with the rubber mallet until they're almost powder. Pour that in to the milk jug as well. Next, add cold water to the jug, bringing the level of the substance 3/4" of an inch above where the marijuana level was.
Put the cap on the milk jug and shake it for 5 minutes, then put it in the freezer for 5 minutes. Repeat the shaking/freezing process two or three times. Now, grab the coffee filter and strain out all of the liquid in the jug. Make sure to get all of the liquid strained in to the bowl. With your freezer set to the highest setting, put the bowl of water in the freezer. Be very careful with it and try not to disturb it too much. The bowl should sit in the freezer for around 45 minutes, or until the fluid begins to form a delicate ice layer. It's also a good idea to tap the bowl lightly with a spoon. The trichomes are in the water and the most dense, heavy ones will fall to the bottom of the bowl.
After the liquid forms the thin layer of ice, remove the bowl from the freezer. Don't let the liquid swish around or you'll disturb the settled trichomes. Using a turkey baster or something similar, slowly remove the liquid from the bowl. This is a time consuming process because you can't disturb the settled matter at the bottom. Once the liquid gets down to a very low level, you can use paper towels to help absorb. After you've removed the liquid, take a hair dryer to the mixture, carefully drying it. The mixture should get lighter and be about the same color all the way around.
I'm sure that there are more complex ways to make ice hash but for those without access to better equipment, this is a pretty easy way for anyone to make their own ice hash and without a lot of bud. I hope that this method works for you! If you think you're method is better, let me know! Email your tricks to firstname.lastname@example.org!

Medical marijuana dispensary opens in Lake Havasu City
Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Tue, November, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
A new medical marijuana dispensary recently opened in Lake Havasu City and is serving at least 600 patients by offering 18 strains of marijuana, marijuana edibles, marijuana juices and marijuana-infuses ointments.
“We’re helping the patients,” said medical marijuana dispensary consultant Joel Williams.
With card-holding patients entering the dispensary, the stark and sterile lobby is comparable to that of a doctor’s office. Patients check in, and wait their turn for access into the bud tender room, which is a secured area. After selecting their medicines, the patients pay for their selections and are free to go.
The dispensary officially opened its doors Oct. 10, and employs seven or eight individuals. There are at least two med-tenders on staff at any one time to help patients. Inside, past the lobby, is the bud tender room, secondary reception area for privacy, a staff processing area, and a security room.
“We had an intentional soft opening so we could be sure the systems are in place and the operation is successful,” Williams said.
Security measures at the dispensary are comparable to that of a bank, and include 46 security cameras, an elaborate alarm and monitoring system, bullet-proof glass and bullet-proof walls.
City zoning issues detailing where the dispensary could be located within city limits and construction delays pushed the opening of the dispensary about 90 days past the directors’ anticipated July opening. In all, the local dispensary has been in the works for about 2 1/2 years.
