A few days ago I purchased some Mopani driftwood from Petco and I've had it soaking in warm water since, changing out the water every 3 - 5 hours. The driftwood is STILL leeching out crazy amounts of tannins, to the point where it would be very noticeable in my aquarium.

Any way that I can expedite this process?

Agreed with the others, boiling will speed up the process. A few days isn't a very long soak, so if it's too big for boiling, or you can't boil for some other reason, plan on another week or two in the bucket.
It's just big enough to fit in a pot on the stove. Wife isn't too happy but last time I did this the tannins stained my bathtub lol.
