The Dry Ice Extraction Method

The dry ice extraction method is another method of CBD extraction that can be performed at home, although it takes a bit more time and effort than its olive oil equivalent. As well as the cannabis plant itself, you’ll need the following equipment:

  • Around 3 pounds of dry ice
  • A large piece of Plexiglas or a mirror
  • A paint scraper or putty knife
  • Thick gloves that are heat resistant and eye protection
  • A clean 5-gallon plastic bucket
  • 3 bubble hash mesh bags; sizes are 73, 160 and 220 microns
  • 3 large, clean glass jars for storage

Steps:

Put on your gloves and eye protection, chop up the cannabis plant into small pieces and place it in the bucket. Cover the plant with the dry ice and leave it for 3 minutes. It is best only to fill the bucket halfway. This process causes the freezing of the trichome resins. Fit the 73-micron bag over the bucket and shake the ice & plant combo for about 4 minutes; this knocks the frozen trichomes off.

Turn the bucket upside down on the Plexiglas and shake as much resin through the mesh bag as possible. Scrap the hash off the Plexiglas with your scraper and place it into one of the jars. Repeat with the 160 and 220-micron mesh bags, and you’ll be rewarded with three different strains of extract.

Not Always Easy Getting Dry Ice: Depending on where you live, it isn’t always so easy to get your hands on 3 pounds of dry ice unless you order it online.
