excellent tutorial! Extremely clean dry sifted hashish like that is the pure essence of the plant, it's the ultimate.
and the best part about pure dry sift compared to good quality dry sift is the impact of the high......good dry sift tastes good and gets you high, but the pure really hits much harder warming your ears, sweating up your forehead and giving your brain a Zing! and the taste is ten times better and the other great thing about pure dry sift is that it only takes a tiny amount to achieve a much better experience than by smoking bowl after bowl of the usual mostly contaminated sift that most make with a single screen.
I'd also suggest to add that when sifting at room temperatures, do not try this advanced method with bud or sugar leaf that is only a few weeks old, as although the plant matter is dry enough to sift, the trichomes often take months to lose moisture and become less "gooey" and so may easily rupture and get squashed on the screens....this does three things, the screens become partially blocked, it prolongs the process and you end up with less of the stuff that gets you high. Sam Skunkman's mentioned he uses plants that have been dried for 6 months to make his 99.9% dry sift.
To speed up the process, at the expense of quantity while achieving a similar result, is to stop carding when for example only 50% of the rough sift has been carded or vibrated through the 107 micron screen as the heavier, rounder trichomes tend to pass through at a greater rate initially than the rough shaped lighter weight bits of broken plant matter. Then work this sift over the 70 micron mesh.
Another way is to work the rough sift over the 107 micron mesh, when about 80% has passed through, stop, clean the 107 micron screen by upturning off at the side and tapping it out to get rid of any bits of contaminant in or on the mesh and then re-sift the hash that has passed through the same 107 mesh again, stopping when about 80% has passed through the mesh..doing this should leave you with a slightly cleaner sift....then work the sift over the 70 micron mesh.
