What is Hash? FAQ
Hash has been around for centuries yet many people still have questions about exactly what hash is, its effects, and how it’s made. We’re here to answer some of those questions.
What is Hash?
Hash, or hashish is a concentrated form of cannabis made through extracting trichomes (crystals) from dried marijuana flowers. Depending on how the trichomes are extracted, the resulting products can look and feel very differently. For example, bubble hash is made by freezing trichomes off with ice water, resulting in a product that is more crumbly (and looks like granular brown sugar) versus a “cake” or block you see in traditional hash.
What’s the difference between Hash and Marijuana?
Because hash is a type of concentrate made from the resinous glands that contain cannabinoids (i.e. THC), effects will be much stronger than when using regular flower. Traditional hash (the hash that comes in blocks) typically has THC levels ranging between 20-50% depending on factors such as extraction technique and the quality of the starting material. In bubble hash, THC levels can reach up to a whooping 60%. To put into perspective, marijuana flower usually has THC levels ranging between 10-20%. This means that you can find around 3-6 times more THC in hash than in flower!
How do I use Hash?
One of the most popular ways to to smoke hash is to sprinkle it in a joint together with flower. Hash can also be smoked in a bong or pipe, or even vapourized. Some people also enjoy decarboxylating (heating and activating) hash and adding it into their food and beverages.
