In this blog we are going to browse, among the best cannabis strains to make hashish this 2022, since you are surely preparing your indoor or outdoor cultivation and you are dreaming of obtaining excellent extracts such as hashish, to delight yourself with your friends.
Before discovering what types of hashish exist, we are going to tell you that hashish is an extraction from the marijuana resin glands, where by different techniques the trichomes are separated from the plant part of the marijuana buds. Hashish usually has a very high concentration of cannabionoids such as THC or CBD.
This is because during the extraction these cannabinoids, among other substances, are separated from the buds and come together in a single compound. In this way they reach concentrations of up to 99% THC or CBD. They also accumulate a great flavor and aroma, since these organoleptic characteristics are found in the resin glands. Depending on how hashish is made and its type of extraction, different concentrations, colors and textures are achieved. Now, it depends on the technique used to extract the hashish from the marijuana buds, it can have various names, powers, flavors, colors, and textures. We are now going to review what are all the types of hashish that we can find.
This is the first hashish extraction that took place in history, and it also continues to be one of the best hashishes, one of the most powerful and tasty. However, its extraction method is not comfortable and that is why today it is almost in disuse.To extract charas hashish, the buds are rubbed still on the marijuana plant or freshly cut, with their hands so that the resin glands remain attached to the hand. Today gloves are used to avoid dirtying your hands, but in ancient times this process was done with bare hands. Once a good layer of resin was achieved, they rubbed their hands to loosen the precious pollen from their hands.
You may think that charas is hashish of a specific variety, but no, all hashish extracted from the oldest extraction methodology of the cannabis plant is called charas. The charas comes from India and Pakistan, although its putative origin (speculative origin, not proven) is in the Himalayas. Hindus have used charas for rituals and cultural festivities for thousands of years. Especially the Shivas use it a lot, these are the Hindus who worship the god Shiva. This god is supreme for them and it is said that he has a special devotion to this plant, so smoking charas is a way to worship him. What’s more, at the moment that they are producing the charas they sing their different names that they have had throughout the entire religion.
The main place of production for thousands of years has been the valleys of Privati and Kashmir. In these valleys the cannabis plant grows freely everywhere. It is currently one of the main products of the area in terms of trade. In the past it was also traded alongside opium in the early days of the British Empire. To smoke the traditional charas, it is done with a conical pipe made of clay or wood, this conical pipe is called a chillum. Although if you don’t have this type of pipe or you don’t like to smoke a pipe, you can always make a joint, joint, mai or whatever they call it in your area. Of course, make a long joint and quilt it both above and below with tobacco, making it stay in the center, since if the charas is in direct contact with the paper, you will get a long nail.
Secondly, we find dry hashish, which is one of the simplest and fastest techniques for making a cannabis concentrate at home. It is a full spectrum product since it is possible to extract most of the cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant by removing the entire head of the trichome instead of dissolving them as occurs in other extractions in which chemical solvents are used.
It is the oldest method of producing concentrates and, although its origin has not been determined despite the multiple investigations carried out, everything points to the Asian continent, specifically Persia, a country that has been the leading exporter of hashish since the mid-1950s. 60 years. In the dry hashish extraction, no solvent or other type of product that alters the trichomes of the plant must be used, which is why it is said to be carried out “dry”. Instead, tools that work with movement are used, such as sieves or meshes of different microns.
With this extraction technique it is important to freeze the marijuana beforehand to achieve better results. In this way the resin glands are broken at their base and it is easier to separate them from the plant matter. This method of extracting hashish can be put against the fact that when doing it by friction and hitting it, very small pieces of vegetable matter are also released that filter and join with the pollen. This increases the quantity, but decreases the quality since it is not only resin that we finally collect.
Thirdly, there is the Bubble hash, an extraction that refers to a specific type of hashish made with a process that involves ice water. Like traditional hashish, bubble hashish is a solid concentration of cannabis resin glands or trichomes. It can vary in color from light blonde to dark brown. Bubble hash gets its name from its tendency to bubble when placed under a lighter flame.
Among the different qualities of Bubble Hash that can be obtained the “full melt” is considered the highest quality bubble hash. The ultra-refined full melt tends to bubble heavily when smoked or smoked, leaving little material behind. You can also see the hash rated on a scale of one to six, with six star hash being the most refined and desirable.These highest quality hash is made using extremely fine mesh sieves that prevent plant material from passing through, only the tiny heads of trichomes.
