HASH: A Cannabis Derivative

Hash is an extracted cannabis product composed of compressed or purified preparations of stalked resin glands, called trichomes, from the plant.

Hashish may be solid or resinous depending on both preparation and room temperature; pressed hashish is usually solid, whereas water-purified hashish—often called “bubble melt hash”, or simply “bubble hash”—is often a paste-like substance with varying hardness and pliability; its color, most commonly light to dark brown, can vary from transparent to yellow, tan, black, or red. This all depends on the process and amount of leftover plant material (i.e. chlorophyl)

What is Hash?

Hashish results from the separation of trichomes from the cannabis plant. Trichomes are found on mature cannabis flowers, but they can also be sourced from all over the plant  but in smaller concentrations. This is mainly why many growers save their trim so they can extract all the trichomes holding the precious cannabinoids and terpenes.

What is a Kief?

Trichomes which is commonly referred to as “Kief”, is technically the crystal formation on the end of trichomes. They appear as microscopic hair-like glands.

What are trichomes used for?

Trichomes are often used to make edibles, or are pressed/heat-treated to form hash.

How much THC does Hash have?

Since hash is a cannabis extract, it holds more cannabinoids and terpenes, the compounds responsible for marijuana’s smell/taste and psychoactive experience, thus delivering a much heavier punch than dried flowers.

How is Hash consumed?

It is consumed by smoking a small piece, typically in a pipe, bong, vaporizer or joint, or via oral ingestion (after decarboxylation).
