Cannabis comes in a variety of forms and there are many ways to enjoy it. Many people smoke the plant flower, while others enjoy cannabis in a more concentrated form. No matter how you consume cannabis, it’s important to know your limits as different forms have different levels of potency.
In this guide, we’ll give you an overview of everything you need to know about hashish including how to smoke hash, its benefits, and where to buy it. So sit back, relax, and let’s learn all about hash.
What Is Hash?
To put it simply, hashish, more commonly known as hash, is a form of concentrated cannabis. The concentration is formed by collecting trichomes, the highly potent resin glands of the hemp plant, and compressing them into a wax-like, solid substance.
Hash often looks like brownish or black blocks (depending on the consistency) and has higher THC levels than you’d get smoking regular cannabis flower. Hash is different from other cannabis concentrates in that it holds onto more of the plant flower than other options.
When trying hash for the first time, it’s important to take it slow as you may feel stronger effects of the THC compared to smoking the flower form. If you’re ready to try hash, there are a few different ways to enjoy it.
How to Smoke Hash?
Hash is a very versatile form of cannabis and it can be consumed in many ways including:
Bowl or Bong
This method of smoking hash is the most common considering it’s an easy and quick way to consume cannabis. First, remove the hash from its packaging and break it up into small pebble-like sections. Then simply pack a bowl or bong the same way you would with cannabis flower, light the concentrate, and inhale to your liking.
Smoking a joint with the inclusion of hash is also a common and easy way to get high. You will simply roll your joint as usual with flower cannabis, cut up small pieces of hash and roll it into your joint, light up, and relax.
Dabbing is when you smoke hash out of a dab ring. They look very similar to bongs but they are specifically designed for smoking cannabis concentrates. Instead of lighting a bowl, you’ll light what looks like a nail with a blow torch until it’s incredibly hot, then you’ll add a small amount of hash with either a paper clip or a dab wand. As soon as the hash hits the nail and begins to warm, inhale, and you’re good to go.
It is also possible to vape hash if done correctly. You’ll need to purchase a vaporizer that’s designed for flower cannabis, not one for concentrates. Crumbly hash is ideal for packing your vape to minimize any residue.
Once crumbled, you’ll pack your vape with hash, apply a degummed hemp fibre anywhere that the hash will melt in your vape, then enjoy. The degummed hemp fibre is an important step as it will protect your vape from clogging.
Benefits of Smoking Hash
As cannabis becomes more widely used and accepted, people all over the world are learning more about its benefits. Just some of the health benefits include improving depression and anxiety, pain management, lung health, insomnia, and so much more.
Smoking cannabis used to get a bad rap, but now we’re seeing it used for medical purposes across the globe.
Where to Buy Hash?
There are a variety of ways to buy hash. You can find a dispensary near you if cannabis use is legal in your state or you can buy hash online from reputable sellers.
