Dry Sieve Hash
Definition - What does Dry Sieve Hash mean?
Dry sieve hash, or dry sift hash, is obtained through the use of an extraction process that splits the trichomes of the cannabis plant from the plant’s material utilizing a metal screen.
One of the most important aspects of creating dry sieve hash is the thickness of the mesh that the dry plant material is sifted through. The finer the mesh, the greater the purity of the dry sieve hash. For example, a screen with greater micron gage will yield pieces of plant material and not produce as fine of a product.
Most hash is manufactured using the lower buds and leaves of the plant; however, dry sieve hash is made using the upper buds and flowers in order to obtain the greatest concentration of trichomes, cannabinoids, and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Hydrolife explains Dry Sieve Hash
The process of making dry sieve hash is relatively simple. The dried flowers and buds are sprinkled across the surface of a wire mesh screen. The plant material is then vigorously rubbed across the screen to break it down and release the trichome-rich powder.
Some manufacturers of dry sieve hash continue to run the powder through additional finer mesh screens to obtain an even finer, richer product.
The powder can be smoked or it can be further heated to create a characteristically hash-appearing product.
