I'm getting down to the end of a MEGA run of BUBBLE making. There are some recent batches that seem alot more gritty. Is there dirt in my BUBBLE?? I'm not sure if it's that or if i am just getting down to some serious heads?? Using 8 bags with 7 minutes gentle custom spoon.

the consistency of hash never ceases to amaze me...i've seen all forms of consistnacy and to be able to pinpoint what will melt by look or feel is impossible......

Yeah, I've only been using an 8 bag kit for a little while now. There has definately been some different and amazing new discoveries. Do you use any other means of determining quality and purity???

if the hash hasnt been pressed with much force while wet or dry(trichomes havent been squished together)
i would look at it broken up under high magnification 100x-200x hopefully you could determine what exactly the GRIT is? anytime ive magnified and seen lots of heads i can always know before even smoking it or applying heat that it will melt i then puff it and confirm :) so you can tell by look alone but you need to be super eyes 200x zoom haha :) peace

ya as far as ive noticed. so far anything that has high amount of heads/contaminate ratio has always melted. i only started magnifying recently tho. also stuff that doesnt melt under 200x magnify is just contaminated beyond belief but looks like a nice brown hash to the naked eye. so someone please if they are magnifying and see all heads and NOT getting a melt speak up cause i would like to know hehe :) peace

I have had some hash come out almost like sand or sugar type gritty.... dunno if its the same. was uber melty hash. I usually see the 'granular' type hash in the 120 screen myself.

If there is dirt in your starting material, particles of it will make it thru the bags, sorted by size, right along with the hash.

Sure hope yours is the sugar kind, and not dirt in the mix.

having mostly heads is NOT a sure fire sign of fmcd....some strains waxy membrane is much thicker than others....
