Ingredients1 ounce leaf material
145 micron silk screen mounted on a wooden frame
Piece of glass or mirror larger than silk screen
Directions1. First harvest your plants. Then trim the leaves and dry them upside down or on a screen. It’s important that this is done in a warm and dark place for a week or so (until they are completely dry).
2. Use a blender to grind the leaves into a fine powder. Carefully stir with a metal butter knife (keep the knife above the blender’s blades). A vortex will form in the center of the mixture, and you must collect the marijuana from the sides of the blended and stir it into this vortex. It will take about 5 minutes to get the marijuana very finely ground. Make sure to turn off the blender if it starts to get warm to avoid overheating.
3. Pour the mixture over a fine silk screen stretched over a wooden frame. Put the glass (or mirror) below the screen. Use a plastic card to run the ground marijuana over the screen. Remove any stems. Continue rubbing the leaf over the screen until half of it has passed through.
4. Collect all the leaf that didn’t pass through to the glass and put it back into the blender. Blend it until the marijuana is finely ground. Pour the marijuana onto the screen again and rub it through the screen. Once you half of it passes through the screen take the remaining marijuana and put it into the blender again. Proceed rub the finely ground over the screen until most of the marijuana has passed through.
5. Use the card to scrape the flour into a large airtight container. Remove the screen and carefully scrape the flour off the glass (or mirror) into the airtight container.
Note: You can use the marijuana flour for half the all-purpose flour called for in recipes.
