Hash is a drug which is made from cannabis weed. At the beginning of the 20th century, the popularity of Hashish in Europe came from Kashmir, Afghanistan , and many parts of India, as well as Greece, Syria, Nepal, Lebanon, and turkey. It is taken by smoking with a small piece of a pipe, bong vaporizer or joint, or a via oral ingestion (after decarboxylation).
As pure Hash will not burn if rolled alone in a joint, it is regularly mixed with herbal cannabis, tobacco or a further type of herb for this technique of consumption. Hashish was the beginning form of cannabis used in Europe in 2008. Herbal cannabis is more extensively used in Northern America.Hash has been consumed for many centuries, though there is no clear evidence as to its first presence. Larger markets matured in the late 1960s and early 1970s when most of the Hash was carried from Pakistan and Afghanistan.
How is Hash Made?
Some legends have it that the finding was made throughout harvest season. After farmers finished collecting the buds from the crop, they’d be left with extra on their hands, which they’d scrape off to clean. After taking these scrapings, Hash was found and the process for collecting trichomes has become ever more priored. Of course, the rubbing method is a simple one, and one that’s used by those today who just happen to have a good amount of marijuana that they want to play around with. However, because of the time involved for a smaller yield, this is not a technique that works in commercial applications.
What works just as completely is using screens to remove the trichomes from the plant. Using the same idea as rubbing fingers and hands together, one screen holds the plant material while another is gently placed over top of it and slowly rubbed back and forth, comparing the keifs off of the plant. Sometimes several screens are used, with the maze becoming finer the more the plant material is rubbed.
Once the trichomes have been separated from the plant, they can then be push into a brick. When hash is made using the screen process, it’s typically a bit darker in color as a small quantity of plant material will inevitably make its way into the hash.Some hash producers use screens that are inside drum machines, a machine that will naturally shake the plant matter inside small bags that are entirely mesh. Like the manual screen method, the maze of the screens get afterwards smaller so that only the purest hash is left at the end of the process. This will be left as a residue around the inside of the bags, and like closely all methods of hash production, it can then be scraped off.
