Hash (aka hashish) is a Cannabis concentrate product, it is produced by separating the precious trichomes from the plant matter, and then converting the potent resin into a pressed brick like product. Trichomes are the resin glands which produce and contain the highest levels of concentrate of cannabinoids (THC and CBD) in the cannabis plant- this is what gives the effects and benefits of cannabis. Hashish is believed to have originated in India originally, and then introduced to the Arabian peninsula during the 10th century and, later made its way to Europe during the 18th century. The THC potency levels can range from anywhere between 35% to 85%, with the main ingredient being kief (trichome resin), it will not take much to feel the effects which are typically long lasting.
Hash can be made using Indica, Sativa, or Hybrid cannabis plants which means the effects will vary depending on the strain used. Usually, Sativa-dominant hash will give an energetic, uplifted and happy experience, while Indica-dominant hash will give the body a heavy relaxed, calm and sedated experience. Many users actually say compared to flower, hash provides a much more clear-headed high making it great for the daytime activities.
