If you're looking to get the most out of your plants with post-harvest extraction, bubble bags are the simplest and most cost-effective tools at your disposal! These allow you to effortlessly separate the dry sift from your flower or trim, which can then be consumed on its own or used for other forms of extraction - such as rosin.
And when you shop at Hydrobuilder, you'll find the best selection of bubble bags on the market. We offer the top brands like Bubble Magic, PurePressure, and more - all at the best prices online and with the most intuitive shopping experience in the entire horticulture industry.
We also have the rest of your extraction essentials - including rosin presses - so you can produce the finest solventless extracts possible. Whether you're a hobbyist grower with a few plants or a commercial cultivar with a few hundred, all your needs are covered here!
What Exactly Are Bubble Bags?
Bubble bags offer the simplest form of extraction out there. Plus, the extraction is entirely free of solvents - meaning no chemicals are needed in the process. Just some ice cubes and a bit of manual labor!
These bubble bag kits typically come in a set of multiple bags - each having its own micron rating. for example, the Bubble Magic Extraction Bags set we offer here at Hydrobuilder can be bought in a few different packs. One of these is a pack of 8, which includes the following micron sizes:
- 220 microns bag
- 190 microns bag
- 160 microns bag
- 120 microns bag
- 90 microns bag
- 73 microns bag
- 45 microns bag
- 25 microns bag
If you're not familiar with how the different micron sizes work, it's pretty simple. The larger the micron, the larger the holes. This allows you to shake out different grades of hash.
For example, your 220-micron bag would yield the most hash of the set - but plant matter would fall through these larger microns, so it would be a bit less pure.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, your 25 micron pressing screen is going to yield lower quantities, but the purity and potency will be insane!
What Are Bubble Bags Used For?
Extraction bags, also known as "bubble bags" are a great way to collect pollen and resin quickly and easily with the help of ice-cold water and a little manual work.
You may be under the impression that your trim isn't worth much on its own, but that couldn't be further from the truth! On the contrary, there are all kinds of trichomes coating those sugar leaves and tiny popcorn nugs that you would otherwise throw away.
By using bubble bags, you can easily separate those potent, flavorful trichomes from your trim and then use these for other purposes. Some people consume this hash on its own, but to really increase the value of your plants - you can use it to press some rosin. The best rosin in the world comes from dry sift, which is highly potent and flavorful.
With all this said, you aren't limited only to using trim with your bubble bags. Some growers will shake out their actual buds too, but we recommend only doing this with your smaller buds that have low value.
How Do Bubble Hash Bags Work?
The premise behind bubble hash bags work is simple. Ice-cold pollen is very brittle and separates from the flower when agitated - creating a potent, herbal extract.
You fill these extraction bags with tons of ice - ideally, dry ice. This gets the lowest temperature in the bags possible, increasing the yields you get. Drop your trim or flower in, close the bag up, and shake away while the dry sift falls away!
This pollen is collected in the extraction bag through various screens with ascending micron filtering screens. A set of bags that contains more screens, like the 5-bag or 8-bag sets, will allow the user to collect more grades of pollen or resin from your buds.
After you collect your "hash" you can either consume it or sell it as is or take things a step further, by turning it into more premium, higher-value extract.
You have the option to press it with an Extraction Press (pollen press) to remove any excess water or let it dry out and press it with a Rosin Press to produce rosin - one of the most highly-sought after solventless extracts on the market (aside from live rosin).
Remember to always use your bags on a clean surface. The last thing you want is to drop a few grams (or ounces) of dry sift onto a table or surface that hasn't been sterilized and wiped clean. Don't risk contaminating your product - get stainless steel workstations if you're going to take your extraction seriously!
What Should I Keep In Mind When Buying Bubble Hash Bags?
If you're ready to give these bubble hash bags a shot, you're in the right place - because you'll find no better selection than what you see here at Hydrobuilder! But, which of these sets is right for you?
Of course, you should make sure whatever extractor kit you end up buying is high quality and easy to clean. Plant material will really gunk the sides of your bag up, so you want to make sure it comes off with just a wipe.
But, the two biggest things you need to look at are the actual size of your bags - indicated in gallons - along with the different microns included in your set. You obviously want to make sure you get a good bag assortment!
The larger your bags are in terms of gallons, the larger batches you'll be able to work with at once. It's also really important to make sure you have a large range of microns in your bubble bag kit. This helps you produce different grades of hash and get everything your plants have to offer.
Which Brands Make The Best Bubble Bag Kits?
If you're looking for some specific recommendations, you can't go wrong with Bubble Magic. This brand is known for manufacturing durable bubble bags that will help you with your extraction process for years to come.
Bubble Magic, known for producing the original bubble bags, offers two different extraction bag sets - their standard bubble bag kits or their all-mesh extraction bags. While the standard set is great - with double stitched seams and extra-strong nylon material thread - many growers prefer the all-mesh version. The all-mesh version drains quicker so you can work faster and get more done in the day. These even come with a carry bag!
However, if you're on a budget, we have some really great cheap bubble bags available, too. Make no mistake, though - these are high quality. The Grow1 extraction bag sets start at under $30, and come with everything you need to get started.
You'll also find top brands like Boldt Bags, EXTRACT!T, The Original Resinator, and more. If you aren't seeing exactly what you're looking for - just reach out. Chances are, we can help you get it - and at the best prices online!
