Hashish, also known as ‘hash‘, Arabic [حشيش], is a drug made by compressing and processing trichomes of the cannabis plant. It is consumed by smoking, typically in a pipe, bong, vaporizer or joint, or sometimes via oral ingestion. Hash has a long history of usage in eastern countries such as Lebanon, Afghanistan, India, Iran, Morocco, and Pakistan. Hash consumption is also popular in Europe, where it is the most common form of cannabis use.
Hash is processed by separating a cannabis plant’s resin gland from its flowers. These trichomes are known to contain the largest amount of cannabinoids and terpenes. Hash produces potent psychoactive and medicinal experiences for all those who consume.
