How to Make Hash from Kief in 5 Easy Steps

Support me by sharing!

Anyone can learn how to make hash from kief; all you need is a glass jar, a piece of wax or parchment paper and some kief. [Update for 2018: Wax paper should only be used for this particular method, which uses low heat and pressure to make the hash.  At higher temperatures and/or using other methods, wax paper may release toxins or unpleasant odors and fumes.  Industrial or commercial grade parchment paper that can sustain high temperatures is better.] This is the simplest method of hash-making, where processed kief is used as the primary ingredient. This method of making hash from kief is perfect for off-grid living and cultivation and for preppers or anyone working in remote locations with little or no access to supplies (hence the use of wax paper; this was an off-grid, remote project).

Items needed to make hash from kief

Kief hash made using this method is extremely potent and fresh-tasting, although the finished product will depend on the quality of kief that you start with.

How to Make Hash from Kief: Ingredients

  • Kief
  • Glass Jar with Lid
  • Parchment Paper or Wax Paper

How to Make Hash from Kief: Process

  1. Place kief in pile in the center of a medium square of wax or parchment paper.
  2. Fold the paper around the kief into a tight square or rectangular package; tape shut if necessary.
  3. Fill the glass jar with hot water and tightly replace lid. Handle with pot holders or other cloth if needed.
  4. Roll the jar over the package repeatedly, pressing and heating the hash for 8-10 minutes.
  5. Cool package in the refrigerator, freezer, snow, ice, etc. for 30-60 minutes. This makes the hash pliable so that it can be removed from the paper.
    Unwrap and enjoy fresh kief hash!
