The Power of the Press
Turning kief into a compressed hash cake is a snap with the L.A. Grinders Pollen Press dowel rod system. It’s incredibly durable aluminum construction that forms a solid block, putting the pressure where it needs to be- on that terpene-rich kief!
Designed with premium anodized aluminum, this L.A. Grinders Pollen Press has a black main hollow outer chamber and two black end caps; the L.A. Grinders Pollen Press uses two dowels to press smaller or larger amounts of hash.
In a pinch, this 2.5” x 1” L.A. Grinders Pollen Press is easily carried around when assembled and even used as a container for carrying all kinds of cannabis or smoker’s tools! It only weighs a few ounces and creates an airtight, smell-proof, and water-proof seal.
Paddy Kief Cake
Under intense pressure, kief is easily compressed in this hash press. Using a quality herb grinder with a kief collection chamber, your terpene-intensive cannabis crystal gathers like precious gold dust, collecting faster the more you grind.
Insert a dowel into one side of the press and screw one end cap, but don’t tighten all the way. Flip the oppress over and, using parchment or other paper, pour that sweet kief powder into the press. Insert the second dowel and press to compact enough to screw on the other end cap.
Making Hash Rounds
Twist both ends as tightly as you can by hand, but DO NOT use any tools. Twist a little harder. C’mon, you can do better than that! This is supposed to be concentrate! Twiiiist!! Okay, good. Now put the press into a warm area, like by a computer. Do NOT use heat. Rest 6-8 hours.
Resting the compressed kief for hours gives it a chance to settle and warmth to compress even more. After resting, twist the L.A. Grinders Pollen Press as hard as you can from both sides again. Then, place it into the freezer for about 15 - 25 minutes.
With colder temperatures, the kief being compressed will chill. This will cause those sticky terps to let go of the edges. After chilling, unscrew both ends. Use the dowel(s) as needed and maybe a hammer, if necessary, to tap out your beautifully compressed kief cake.
