Solventless concentrates such as ice water or “bubble” hash are increasing in consumer popularity. One of the reasons for this growing demand is because solventless extraction is perceived as being a more “natural” extraction method—while also preserving the unique flavor profile of the specific strain. So, if you’re producing hash to scale you may want to consider upping the ante on your processing capability with solventless, water-based separation equipment.
The VTS utilizes a cold-water mechanical separation technique to gently separate cannabinoid- and terpene-rich trichomes from your biomass. With just the right amount of agitation these trichomes are physically removed from the plant while the remaining biomass is left relatively intact.

The highly sought-after cannabinoids CBD, THC, and accompanying terpenes are produced in the trichomes of the cannabis plant. These trichomes are quite prominent and are clearly visible as sticky crystals on the cannabis flower.
The VTS uses cold water and ice to gently remove hardened trichome heads from their stalks, ultimately yielding a much cleaner, solventless hash product. With the right amount of agitation these trichomes are physically removed from the plant while the remaining biomass is left relatively intact.
A crossflow turbulence is produced by the bottom-driven paddle in combination with a uniquely shaped wash basin to create a powerful agitating force. The result is a maximum separation of resin heads from the plant surface with negligent to non-existent plant-particulate contamination.
The trichomes then remain in the water as suspended undissolved solids. Once this water and trichome slurry mix is separated from the remaining biomass, it’s very easy to filter, separate, collect, and dry for use in high-quality, light-colored hash.
