Hash is simply the waxy product formed when the cannabis trichomes (resin glands) are concentrated and compacted into a solid block. As well as cannabinoids, hash also contains small amounts of plant material and plenty of terpenes which help give the distinctive hash taste. Many will simply smoke some in a pipe or bong. Others will roll a thin ‘sausage’ of hash and lay it in a joint to supercharge it. Some people break small chunks of hash into a vaporizer and others prefer to cook with it. Hashish is a powerful cannabis concentrate, a little goes a long way!
Hashish has been used for thousands of years, ever since the first humans noticed the curious sticky by-product from the cannabis plant. Hashish can be smoked, or used in cooking/edibles and usually contains between 5-40% THC, often with higher CBD levels than traditional weed. The final levels of THC, CBD, etc will depend on the cannabis genetics, growing conditions, and hashish production techniques. Here is a link about hash types with some interesting info. For some cannabis lovers, the rich aromatic scent and taste make hashish a unique treat. It’s easy to store, transport, and enjoy.
In the 1980s hash would be exported from some of the main production areas (Nepal, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan) with a unique seal embossed on the block of hashish, and it would be wrapped often in red or gold packaging prior to export. It’s easy to cultivate homegrown cannabis, so you can make your own hashish at home if you like. Traditional hash imports from places like Afghanistan, Nepal, and Morocco can still be found, often at competitive prices. You can find these traditional hashish imports in The Netherlands and other countries too.
