What Is Hashish?

Most of us have probably heard of Hashish, but chances are if we are not in the Middle East, we’ve probably never taken a hit of it.  The bulk of the Cannabis plants grown in the Middle east region are usually used to extract Hashish, as its more popular than marijuana its self in that part of the world. I know some might be wondering now, how on earth can anything be better than marijuana. Well, after knowing what Hashish is, or if you already know, then maybe you might grasp why that statement might make a bit of sense.  HashSo, back to the topic, what is Hashish folks?  Hashish or Hash is an extracted substance composed of compressed or purified preparations of stalked resin glands, called trichomes, from the marvelous cannabis plant. Just like Marijuana it also contains the same active ingredients as marijuana, such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and also cannabinoids (CBD). However, the THC and CBD Levels in Hashish aka Hash are often in much higher concentrations than marijuana. Hashish comes in 2 main forms, which are solid form or resinous. Compressed Hashish is very solid compared to Water Purified Hashish which is in a paste like substance and is often referred to as Bubble Melt Hash .The colors of Hashish will range greatly from black or red, yellow, transparent to even tan at times.

hashThe word Hashish its self, simply means grass in Arabic. Hashish is believed to have originated from Morocco during the 1960s time. Morocco has plentiful of Cannabis plants growing in the wild. A lot of evidence suggest this is where hash came from  . Today some of the better harsh actually comes from Morocco. When smoking hashish you usually want to mix it with tobacco or with some good burring weed if you really want to get high like a mother fucker. Many European and Australian Travellers are usually busted trying to smuggle hashish out of places like Turkey .The original way to make Hashish is done by rubbing the buds of the Cannabis plant in your hands to collect the kief and oils until they are thick enough to scrape off. They are then collected into compressed balls. This method is still very popular today especially in the Caribbean. Another common method of making Hash is the Dry-sieve method. With this particular method dried plants are bashed over screens, resulting in kief dropping to the tray set below. It is then pressed by hand or mechanical compressor.

hashToday however, better ways of making Hash have been implemented with the decriminalization laws that are now coming into place in the world. Popular Ice Water Hash is made by stirring cannabis in a bucket of cold waters so that trichomes glans form the plant material will freeze. The mixture will then be poured through some mesh screens made of nylon. The fist mesh will collect the waste plant material whilst the rest will collect wet-mud like trichomes. After this, it is then dried and will usually have THC levels of up to 80% at times. Some other Hash sellers now even use chemicals to extract Hash. Am not too sure how safe this is to be honest, but I know it does encounter some criticism. Criticism doesn’t always mean bad though. This method takes advantage of the fact that THC glans are soluble in chemicals like butane. Herb is packed into a long metal or glass cylinder that’s open on both ends. The liquid butane is then sprayed down the tube and through a filter at the bottom opening. After this the TCH is then dissolved into the butane before it its then  collected and  then cautiously heated and left in a vacuum chamber to evaporate the solvent. The remainder of the product is Hash with TCH levels that almost clock 90% folks.

That’s all I have for now folks. Hope you enjoyed the article. Please share the article on you social media sites and spread the word. The more folks know on this the sooner legalization will come.
