According to Wikipedia: ”Hashish, or hash, is a drug made from the resin of the cannabis plant. It is consumed by inhaling from a small piece, typically in a pipe, bong, vaporizer or joint, or via oral ingestion (after decarboxylation). As pure hashish will not burn if rolled alone in a joint, it is typically mixed with herbal cannabis, tobacco, or another type of herb for this method of consumption. Depending on region or country, multiple synonyms and alternative names exist.”
What is the difference between hash and marijuana?
According to the Drug enforcement administration, hash is the most potent form of cannabis and contains extremely high levels of THC much higher than marijuana. Marijuana may have a potency ranging from 10 to 20 percent THC whereas hashish has a potency of between 20 and 60 percent. This means that it will take a lot less hashish than marijuana to get that high feeling.
How is hash made?
Hashish, hash for short, is derived from the “kief,” or the dried resin, of the flowering tops of mature and unpollinated female cannabis plants. The glands of the resin are called trichomes orcrystals.
Hash is harvested by collecting the powdery resin either by using your hand, by mechanical beating of the plants, or by submersing cannabis plants in icy water and then using small sieves to remove the trichomes, which are then dried. The leftover kief is then pressed into cakes or blocks, which you can then smoke in pipes, mix with marijuana in joints or vaporize and inhale.
There are 3 ways of using hashish:
The effects of eating hashish are more extreme that is why most of the world prefers to smoke it. When smoking hashish, you will feel relaxed.
There are many ways to smoke hash. One of the methods are like rolling a joint. Put a chunk of hash on a key and burn it slightly while you keep the flame on it. Then crumble it up and mix it with tobacco if you want. Roll it up and now you can smoke.
You can also smoke hash by using a glass or a cup. Stick a sewing pin through a cigarette and stick the hash on top of the pin. Now put the cigarette in a clear glass so the tips create a bridge.
Light the hash and make sure to cover the opening of the glass with paper. If the glass is filled with smoke it is time for you to inhale.
According to https://www.civilized.life/ “Vaporizing hashish is an alternative to eating or burning it. The THC in hashish vaporizes when the hashish burns. The THC adjacent to the burning ember vaporizes and is released with the smoke, and the smoker inhales the mixture of vaporized THC and smoke.
When hashish is heated to between 200° C and 450° C, the user receives both the potency and the flavors without any of the smoke usually associated with smoking.”
