Have you ever bought hash and had it crumble in your hands, then burn all nasty when it hits your smoking apparatus? Don’t feel embarrassed or ashamed, we promise it’s not your fault (unless you made the hash yourself, then it is). Instead, what you need in your life is full melt hash – the cream of the crop when it comes to hashish.
Full melt hash tends to be more potent than your average batch of hash oil. Here’s why full melt extracts are becoming one of the safest most potent forms of cannabis available today.
How Do You Get Full Melt Hash?
Full melt extracts have been around for a long time, and multiple ways of extracting full melt extracts have been discovered. None of them involve the introduction of any solvents like butane, propane or even CO2. So you can extract them without the fear of blowing yourself up.
Before rosin tech dabs rose to popularity, the original solventless extracts fell under the “melt” category. Full melt is solventless extraction with a focus on the best part of the plant. The goal in creating full melt is to isolate the trichome heads from the rest of the plant.
Trichome heads are chock full o’ cannabinoids like THC and CBD. Not to mention, there is a high concentration of terpenes in the trichome head. Terpenes are responsible for the aroma and flavor of various cannabis concentrates and flowers.
If you weren’t there to see the concentrate get extracted, there are still ways to tell whether or not what you’re looking at is full melt, half melt or worse.
Full melt hash should contain strictly trichome heads without any leftover contaminants. When you dab it, you should be able to see whether or not there were contaminants. Full melt will turn into a puddle and vaporize without extra residuals burning alongside it. Half melt has contaminants, so half of it will melt, hence the name. The other half contains unwanted residues and contaminants. Full melt isn’t always easy to come by, but if you’re looking for some enter here!
