If you’re curious about hash, this article covers everything you need to know, from its origins to how to consume and where to find the best deals on hash in Lethbridge.

A Brief History of Hashish

There is evidence of people using cannabis in rituals two thousand and five hundred years ago in China.2 However, first-century cannabis is a lot different from the kind we consume today.3 

At the time, cannabis had very low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound responsible for weed’s mind-altering effects. People also used to eat cannabis seeds back then and used hemp plant fibre to make clothing, paper, sails, and rope.3

Hashish, a more potent byproduct of the plant, was widely used throughout the Middle East and parts of Asia by the year 800 AD, or sixteen hundred years ago.3 It was popular in the Middle East because the Quran, the sacred scripture of Islam, forbade the use of alcohol and other intoxicating substances but didn’t specifically prohibit cannabis. By the ninth century, people used hashish for its intoxication effects. 

What is Hash?

Hash, or hashish, is a concentrated form of cannabis. It is made by extracting the cannabinoid-rich resin glands, or trichomes, from the cannabis plant.

Cannabis concentrates are potent extracts derived from the plant. They offer a dense collection of cannabinoids like THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol), which are responsible for the plant's psychoactive and therapeutic effects. 

Hash can vary in texture, colour, and strength depending on the extraction method and the strain of cannabis used.

How is Hash Made?

You can make hash using several extraction methods, including hand-rolling, sieving, or solvents like ice water or alcohol. 

  1. Hand-Rolled Hash: Involves rubbing cannabis flowers between the hands to collect the resin. 
  2. Sieving: Uses screens to separate the trichomes from the plant material. 
  3. Bubble/Ice Water Hash: Uses ice water and agitation to separate the trichomes from the plant material.
  4. Rosin: This is created without using solvents and by applying heat and pressure to plant material. You can make rosin from flower or hash.
  5. Solvent-Based Methods: Involves soaking cannabis flowers in a solvent to dissolve the resin, which evaporates to leave behind the concentrated hash.

What are the effects of hash?

The effects of hash can vary depending on potency, strain, and individual tolerance because everyone experiences cannabis products differently. 

Generally, hash produces more potent effects compared to traditional cannabis flower, as it contains higher concentrations of cannabinoids. 

People who smoke cannabis and hash have reported feeling euphoric, relaxed, and creative. However, just like with cannabis, consuming hash can impair your ability to work and perform tasks safely, so enjoy these products responsibly.

How do you consume hash?

How you consume hash depends on what kid you get—full melt, rosin, or dry sift.

  1. Full melt hash and rosin are great for dabbing because they're more refined (i.e., they don't have excess plant material). The unique flavour of each strain shines when you dab with full melt hash or rosin..
  2. Dry sift/Moroccan hash is more raw and less refined than full melt hash or rosin. It’s great for mixing with regular weed or rolling into a joint (more on this in the next section), so you get a mix of different cannabis experiences all in one.

How to add hash to a hand-rolled joint or blunt

To start, you’ll need these materials: 

Now, complete the following steps:

  1. Grind up your dried flower.
  2. Line the herb down the middle of your rolling paper, creating a smooth, uniform layer (no lumps).
  3. Sprinkle crumbled hash on top of the flower.
  4. Pro-tip: roll the hash between your fingers to create a thin, long hash snake.
  5. Roll it up, light it up, and smoke it.
