What is Hash?
Hashish, also referred to as hash, is a cannabis concentrate typically inhaled or smoked. Hashish is created using a few different methods. However, the essential steps are removing the trichome glands from a cannabis plant and repeatedly compressing them to form a hardened, solid piece. It’s arguably one of the oldest types of cannabis concentrates, with written texts referring to hashish dating as far back as the 12th and 13th centuries. The varying look and feel of hashish are closely tied to its history and the method used to make it.
How to Smoke Hash
Mercedes Hash may be used in several ways. Traditionally, hash has been consumed orally, either solid or infused into a beverage such as the traditional Indian drink bhang. Hash may also be smoked, either on its own or to accompany traditional cannabis flowers. Users can sprinkle some into a bowl, roll it up into a joint or enjoy it traditionally with a hookah and get to relaxing!
Hash vs. Weed: What’s the Difference?
Both hash and weed come from the cannabis plant. Weed typically refers to the plant’s dried flowers. On the other hand, hashish is a concentrate derived from the resin. Hashish is when the essence of cannabis (the trichomes) parts ways with the plant material itself, which is achieved when the ripe and resinous gland heads that line the surface of female cannabis plants are separated and collected. Methods to accomplish resin separation have been practiced for centuries; however, the rapid rise of cannabis legalization in the western world has brought new ways in hash preparation that are sweeping legal markets by storm.
