Pressing doesn't make hash better and in fact Trichome farmer is correct as most hash lovers who make bubblehash prefer it unpressed more of the time. He is also correct to emphasize the risk of mold when drying and storing hash. We make it into a crumbled spread out pile to dry until completely dry before freeziing or pressing. You could freeze it wet but I see no reason to do this. It's easiest to dry unpressed for certain but if pressed thin and dried long enough it would be ok Babba. Many hashmakers dont recognize the mold in their pressed hash because if not drying completely. There need be no moldy buds to cause this as spores are always present and hash molds when wet sure as shit.
I dont usually keep anything much less than full melt but the 120 grade is often just somewhat bubbly and with that I rarely press. However the 73 or 45 if made from high grade can be full melt either pressed or unpressed. Pressed hash stays fresher when exposed to air or in your pocket and it can be hidden in the mouth like a piece of gum. Pressed hash is fun to show off too.
People like to feel how soft it presses when hand warmed so do press some cause its easy.
Just place about a gram of the dried hash in your palm and start warming it by gently pressing your thumb into it. As it warms up you will see that it begins to stick together but start pressing it very hard with your fingertips at first then by doubling it over in your palm and then pressing again with the thumb. 5-10 minutes of this will produce a smooth round ball of hash you might like to play marbles with. For the most part however pressing does nothing and many feel it doesnt burn as fast making it harder to take one huge hit. The powder can be mind altering in one big bong for sure but dry and powderey is the best hit. BOG
