Hash, hashish, CBD resin: what is hash?
All you need to know about hash
When we think of CBD, we often think of products such as flowers and oils. However, the therapeutic molecule, which has no harmful effects on the human body, is available in different forms, variants and even flavours! By the way, we explain the main cannabinoids in CBD in our article. But back to the point... If you want to know more about hash, then continue with us!
Hash or CBD resin, what is it?
When you hear the word "hash", you probably associate it with the full name "hashish". And you're right, because hash is a variant of hashish, but it contains very little THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the cannabinoid with psychotropic effects.
Also known as CBD resin, hash is a hemp concentrate: it contains the maximum amount of cannabinoids and terpenes. If you consume hash, if you haven't done so before, you will feel the effects instantly, giving way to an assured relaxation in a few moments. Its CBD content can be as high as 90%.
The hash exists :
- in different textures: sandy or stickyin different colours depending on the type of hempin
- different flavours and aromas
- and in different levels of cannabidiol
It can be consumed by vaporising it but also orally, by incorporating it into your cooking.
How do you get hash?
To obtain CBD resin, it can be extracted in different ways. CBD resin has been around for years, so you'll be able to deal with both traditional and more industrial extractions. We show you three different ways to extract hash.
The first method is to dry the plant and then to hit it with several sieves. This allows the cannabinoids and terpenes to pass through the sieve. Then, a material called kief or skuff will emerge. It is from this stage that the material will be compacted to obtain CBD hash.
The second method is of Indo-Pakistani origin. It will produce charas resin. Here, it is much more traditional. The hemp flowers are rubbed between the hands and the pollen is collected. The result is a rather sticky but also very dark resin.
Finally, the last method is a more industrial and modern method. The flowers and leaves are first frozen and then put in very cold water. The terpenes and cannabinoids are removed from the plant material by stirring vigorously for a few minutes. The mixture is filtered through a sieve to obtain a very pure pollen. The last step is the compression of the pollen, and this is how CBD resin is obtained.
You can make your own CBD hash, but it's not as easy as it sounds.
How to consume the hash?
Like almost all CBD products, there are several ways to consume it.
The first way of consumption is by vaping. If you're a CBD fan, you probably know what it's all about, but if you're new, don't worry, we'll walk you through it.
It is with the help of a vaporizer that you can inhale the smoke. The vaporiser will heat the resin to a very high temperature, producing a vapour containing the cannabinoids and terpenes found in CBD hash. You can then inhale the vapour without any inconvenience.
The effects of CBD will be felt very quickly because it is absorbed through the respiratory system very quickly. However, be careful with the dose you take as hash is a much more concentrated form of CBD.
You can also incorporate it into your cooking. We've done a little article on how to cook with CBD, check it out. When ingesting hash, the effects of CBD can take up to ten minutes to take effect, as your body needs to digest the product. This means that the hash will take longer to dissipate.This method does not present any particular risk, but it is important to start with a small amount of hash and gradually increase the doses. By the way, we have a lot of fun CBD recipes on our Instagram so go for it!
Finally, it is possible to smoke the hash. But this method is not recommended because it is harmful to your health, just like smoking a cigarette after all! But if you want to smoke the product, you just have to crush it before mixing it with tobacco. Just like vaping, the effects will be felt almost instantly.
If you are wondering how best to consume CBD hash, we strongly recommend vaping the product. This will allow you to experience all the benefits the product has to offer. From cannabinoids to multiple unique terpenes, you'll have a new experience.
