What Is Hashish (Hash)?

Hashish (more commonly called hash) is a potent form of cannabis produced by collecting and processing the most potent material that female marijuana plants naturally generate as part of their growth cycle.

Trichomes are fine growths on plants that produce a sticky resin. In addition to being sticky, the trichomes of the female marijuana plant are a rich source of THC (the primary chemical that causes intoxication when marijuana, hashish, or hash oil are ingested). Hashish is primarily a collection of trichomes that are found on the female marijuana plant.

After being collected, the trichomes are then usually pressed into a cohesive mass known as hashish. Pressing hashish is simply forcing the collected trichomes together, under pressure and sometimes heat.

Besides trichomes, marijuana includes other plant material like leaves, stems, seeds, etc. These other materials are low in psychoactive compounds. Hashish concentrates the THC and eliminates most plant matter found in the cannabis plant. Therefore, hashish is usually more potent than marijuana.

However, certain strains of high quality marijuana may be more potent than low quality or old hashish. As hashish is exposed to air, light, and heat, it loses potency.

The longer hashish is stored, the more potency it loses. Under the best of conditions, it can last up to 5 years. Most hashish from Asia and the Middle East takes months or years to reach its destination from the time it was produced.

Add to this, the fact that most of the hashish imported into USA, Canada, Europe, and other non-hashish producing areas has been pressed with a filler (adulterated) by importers. It has become hard to find the top quality imported hashish that was available in the 1960s and 1970s.

Like marijuana, hashish is usually smoked or eaten. Hashish is intoxicating and can produce euphoria and other feelings similar to marijuana but the effect is stronger.

Hashish is an illegal substance in the United States and many other counties with no accepted medical use. As with marijuana, the primary active ingredient in hashish is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Differences in the way hashish looks, from the dry and dusty soil of Lebanon and Morocco and the green, subtropical mountain slopes of the Himalayas (Nepal, Afghanistan, etc.) are due chiefly to the manner of harvesting.

In Lebanon and Morocco, hashish is usually sieved; this results in lighter colored hashish that will range in color from yellowish (called blond) to red/brown. In the Himalayas, hashish is usually rubbed, this results in darker colored hashish that will range in color from dark brown to nearly black.



Ancient Methods Of Collecting Hashish

There are two methods of collecting hashish from the marijuana plant that have been used for centuries.

---Method one is called sieving. The hashish is obtained from the marijuana by drying the plant and breaking it up into a powder. The powder is then sieved through various screens with different size meshes.

It is first passed through a large size mesh and then smaller meshes each time it is sieved. The hashish powder collected at each stage gets more potent as the mesh size decreases.

This powder can be smoked as it is, but taste and effects change when it is pressed. The quality of hashish depends on the quality of the plants used and the sieving and pressing procedures.

This is the preferred method of collection in Lebanon and Morocco where the plants are dried and then sieved until only the highest quality powder remains.

---Method two is called rubbing. The hashish is obtained from the marijuana by rubbing the live plants and collecting the resin that forms on the hands, gloves, or cloth that has touched the plant.

Rubbing is the preferred method of collection in areas of the Himalayas, like Nepal. There is some hashish produced by sieving in these areas, but hand rubbing has been the primary method of producing hashish in most parts of Asia for centuries.

The quality of hand rubbed hashish depends on the quality of the plants used, the gathering method and the manner of pressing. In general, hand rubbed hashish produced in Asia is better than sieved hashish produced in Lebanon and Morocco.



Modern Hashish Making Methods

Hashish is still produced by the methods explained above, but new advances in science have produced new and quicker methods. These methods include using water to separate marijuana trichomes from plant material. See the instructions on how to make hashish for more information on modern and traditional methods of hashish preparation.



Hashish In The USA

Most of the hashish available in the USA and other import countries is of medium quality or lower. When it is imported the quality is usually good but importers often "press" the hashish with inert filler materials that increase the weight, but this lowers the quality.

Since the late 1960s the hashish produced in some countries has deteriorated. Because there is such a strong demand for hashish abroad, lower and lower quality hashish is being produced in countries that formerly produced only top quality product.

Because people who have never tried good hashish don't know any better, even low grades of hashish find a ready market. For this reason it is usually better to buy good marijuana instead of hashish, unless you are sure the hashish you intend to buy is quality stuff.

Due to the strict cannabis laws in most western countries, many marijuana and hashish users have been forced to produce their own marijuana, hashish, and hashish oil (rather than buying low quality product available to them). This has resulted in more potent grades of marijuana that some growers are making into hashish and hashish oil.

You can now find small quantities of high quality hashish in some American cities where hashish had previously been unavailable. In most cases, the hashish has been produced in (or near) the city it is being sold in.

Most of the hashish now produced in the USA, Canada, (and other western countries that had to import hashish in the past) is very high quality, if you can obtain it before it is pressed with any filler.

This does not mean most of the hashish sold on the street is getting better, it only means that there is a possibility of getting high quality hashish. Cost is usually about 2-3 times that of regular hashish.

A little dab of some Honey oil can turn any cigarette or joint a real treat. I love this kind of hash!

==================== ===================
Butane Hash Oil(AKA Honey Oil):
==================== ===================
Equipment:

For the hash:
1. PVC pipe (1 foot long and anywhere from 1.5-2.0 inches in diameter) or other NON-POLAR material(Stainless steal tube)
2. 2(two) PVC(or other safe material) end caps that fit the above mentioned pipe you have bought.
NOTE: If you are using PVC pipe be sure not to reuse this as it erodes from the butane.
3. A power drill(including a variance of drill bits)
4. Butane Gas(Butane lighter fuel NOT zippo)
[EDIT: You need to use a high quality butane (colibri, vector, etc.) for this extraction, unless you want to be consuming some nasty chemicals with your honey oil. - thanks Ghib]
5. Dry Cannabis and/or sugary trim(this tubing size should fit an ounce approprietly)
6. A pyrex glass collection vessel(a pyrex brownie tray will work wonders for this, nothing too deep/tall however.)
7. A well ventilated area to evaporate the butane gas
8. Ring Stand or any other stand that will hold your pvc pipe in place so you don't need to be near it. I have seen simple things like a post jammed in the ground heavily taped to the pvc pipe work effectively.
9. a coffee filter

Optional:
1. Herb Grinder

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
WARNINGS! BUTANE IS HIGHLY FLAMMABLE AND DANGEROUS. THIS OPERATION SHOULD BE DONE ENTIRELY OUT-DOORS IN A FLAME FREE ENVIRONMENT.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
==================== ===================
Instructions:
==================== ===================
Preparation:
1. Find a drill bit that closely matches the nozzle size on the butane canister.
2. Drill a whole in one of your end caps as close to the center you can.
3. Take your other end cap and drill 4-5 wholes either clustered in the center, or around the outside of the end caps.
*OPTIONAL - Freeze your herb prior too and allow it to thaw. This loosens the cellular structures of the plant prior*
4. Grind your dry cannabis to as close to a fluffy powder as possible(grinder). A good way to do this if you do not have a grinder is get a nice thick freezer zip-lock bag filled with your product and rub your hands together with it between.
5. Put a coffee filter inside the end cap with multiple wholes. Now place this on one end of your pvc pipe .
6. Gently fill your tube with cannabis powder(don't squish it in this could ruin the whole process).
7. Place your other end cap on the pvc pipe.

==================== ===================
Extraction: (YOU MUST BE OUTSIDE IN ORDER TO DO THIS SAFELY)
1. Hold your tube so the end with multiple wholes in it is facing downward. Place your glass collection vessel underneath(an inch or two away at a maximum).
2. Place your butane canister's nozzle inside the top cap of your tube(where you drilled).
*OPTIONAL - Set up your ring stand now.
3. Drain contents of the can into the tube(be sure not to inhale this or have any flame near you WHATSOEVER)
4. Allow this to sit and drip for 10-15 minutes.
*NOTE: Now you should see a nice golden bubbly oil inside of your collection vessel*
==================== ===================
Evaporation:
1. Place your collection dish outside in a place were nothing will land in it.
*Note: NEVER heat this to "Speed up the process" if you like your face and life, just wait 30 minutes. Patience is a virtue*
2. After it has become nice and gooy and dry feel free to harvest it and store it.
3. Before smoking make 100% sure it doesn't smell of butane.
==================== ===================
Yum yum, Enjoy!

Key-notes: Butane oil/Honey oil is an excellent method to make hash using solvents because butane evaporates at such a low temperature where'as isopropyl alcohol and others do not. However, when working with such a highly flammable gas it adds extra caution. Don't think no one has ever blown up a hash set-up google it if your curious(a lot of these aren't first attempts either).butane hash explosion - Google Search

Delicious Idea(AKA PURGING):
Also if you are daring enough you can make a DRY hashish from this technique -

Kif/Keif/Keef/Trichomes into Hashish:
==================== ===================
Equipment:
1. Kif/Tirchomes(the delicious stuff at the bottom of your grinders!)
2. Wax-Paper or Parchment paper
3. Clothing iron
4. Distilled/Pure water
5. A flat surface
6. A strip of newspaper
==================== ===================
Instructions: (Don't burn your hands or anything in your house please)
==================== ===================
1. Add the trichomes(keef/kief/kif/whatever) to a piece of wax-paper
2. Fold the paper SNUGLY around the keif.
3. wrap a strip of newspaper equal in width to your wax paper very tightly surrounding your wax-paper.
4. Introduce a little bit of water just to moisten the newspaper not soak it.
5. Set the clothing iron on it's low setting.
4. Apply the clothing iron to this bundle of paper for 15-20 second intervals.
5. Flip the paper
6. Repeat steps 4 & 5 until you have heated the pouch for about 3 minutes total.
7. Wait for the paper bundle to cool
8. Remove the bundle from the paper wad and viola! Hashish!
==================== ===================
So simple and so sweet!
Key-notes: I find it so amazing how many of my friends have smoked kief and never hash. The only real difference between the two are the densities. All trichomes require to turn into hashish is heat and pressure. Still wonder if it's worth it? I am convinced that after on good hit of some hashish you will not want to go back to smoking unpressed trichomes again. Hashish is sacred.

There are of course other ways to make hashish using different solvents and some involving isomerization. However, the information about the Isomerization process involves an Isomerizer and the details are few and unknown(it is speculated the the infamous "Budder" comes from this process(Budder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).

How can you smoke hashish you may ask?

Hot Knife Method:


Joint and Bottle Method:


Light-bulb vaporizer:


I've seen spoons wrapped around hollowed out bic pens work wonderfully.

There are oh so many ways! Burn a little hashish and crumble it inside of a rolled cigarette, that will put you on a level. Burning hash has a different smell then cannabis but still smells POTENT and flowery and suspicious so remember your not invisible if your smoking hash.

Can you cook with hashish?
Yes you can infact, it is easier and more effective then cooking with the plant matter. The hashish must be ground to a nice powder however(so if your doing the Trichome to Hash method for cooking, just use the trichomes don't bother with making the hash). If your going to be cooking with any solvent based hashish(Isopropyl alcohol, or honey oil) be extremely cautious because if the solvent you used is not fully evaporated not only are you cooking with hash your adding poison to the mix . It is best to cook with Bubble Hash and Trichome To Hash Hashish.

Storage:
- If possible vacuum seal it.
- Keep in a dark cold environment(perhaps a little altoids tin in your freezer )
- You surely can grind up some marijuana and add the powder to your hash glob for more manageability and smoke-ability.

Tips for Hashish in General:
- The colder the hash is the easier it is to work with.
- If you are having troubles moving around a solvent based hashish it's not a bad idea to use a LITTLE bit of isopropyl alcohol(rubbing alcohol) to get it to a more workable state. Just remember to allow it to dry shortly after.

Legality:
If you live in a state or country where hashish is illegal to make or posses and you are doing any of these process's anyways be weary that any and all materials with any form of cannabis trace-able on/in them will be considered drug paraphernalia in the court of law.

Note to readers:
Thanks for reading I hope we have encouraged you to try a method of hash creation. Hash is a wonderful thing, and after this long write-up I sure could use a toke "Who's got the herb?"!

awesome job guys, haven't had agood thread like this in a while, sticky?

Quote:
Purifying Isopropyl Alcohol(Only do this if yours is under 99%):
1. Fill your large jar 1/5 the way full of non-iodized salt.
2. Fill the rest with your isopropyl alcohol
3. Close the lid and shake vigorously(I mean shake the shit out of it)
4. Let the jar sit still on a flat surface for 15-30 minutes, you should now see a cloudy salt water layer on the bottom and a clear alcohol layer on-top.
5. Suck up all the clear alcohol you can with your turkey baster.
I don't see why this would be necessary, isopropyll alcohol is isopropyll alcohol and distilled water, 70% and up work fine, you just might want to do a slightly longer wash

I saw a few problems with this one

I don't think it's a good idea to be recommending pvc for butane tubes, I don't like mixing solvents with plastics, just not a good combo. Instead use some type of safe metal like stainless steel, you can get a stainless turkey baister at bed bath and beyond I believe for ~$7 which is perfect for this. Okief also makes tubes especially for butane extractions Okief butane tubes.

You need to use a high quality butane (colibri, vector, etc.) for this extraction, unless you want to be consuming some nasty chemicals with your bho.

You should also purge the oil when most of the butane's evaporated, or you will have tiny butane bubbles in your oil. To do this you put the dish in a hot water bath while outside, then put it in water that you keep hot for a while, maybe upto a half hour depending on how much you have.

Grinding the bud up, especially very finely, before the extraction will increase your yield but decrease your quality, so for the best quality you should fill the tube with whole/not very broken up nugs.

For solvent extractions I'm not sure how helpful freezing the material is, since the trichomes will be dissolved, not broken off like in sieving or ice hash.

This might go against your Yahookan loyalty or whatever you want to call it, but .................

edit: ignore this just a minor note you can use parchment paper too, wax paper is really made of plastic so even though you won't be melting it at the temps you're using, if might make some people feel better.

kief burns really quick so it's kind of wasteful compared to pressing them into hash, just take a little more work. hash is also easier to manipulate than kief.

A) See the recipe I posted is for QUICK WASH ISOPROPYL ALCHOHOL HASHISH, do you know the appropriete times for a wash at 70%, 50%, etc isopropyl if so you should have posted that. Water ruins the efficiency of a wash. Try using 70% in a salvinorin extraction and you will be gravely upset with you outcome...

B)What's wrong with using PVC. I see no information on it being poor at cold temperatures? It is easily found and easily disposed. From the dozens of times me and my friends have made honey we to this day have no issues. Is it harder to drill through stainless steal?

I do agree I should edit it and mention to use pure butane, but you have to realize that if you are using lighter fluid... ... It leaves the same residues behind as a butane lighter does.

ALSO - You freeze and then thaw the cannabis before the extraction to loosen it's cellular structure... And that is optional.

C) Parchment paper works as well, I have only used that method a few times, I just find that wax paper is a lot easier to fold up nice and snug, then parchment paper. However, it isn't true that wax paper is made from plastic...
Quote:
Reynolds® Cut-Rite® Wax Paper is manufactured with a triple coating of paraffin wax onto tissue paper. The wax is both forced into the pores of the paper and spread over the outside as a coating. This process gives Reynolds® Cut-Rite® Wax Paper the strength and moisture resistance needed to keep your food and countertops looking their best!
Taken from - Reynolds Kitchens: Products: Reynolds® Cut-Rite® Wax Paper

You aren't burning the kief at any point... That is why you wet the news-paper, and no direct heat is applied. A low heat on a standard iron is fine. I have done this and I was never dissapointed... I mean Yeah we could just tell people to go buy pollen presses... Or they can use paper and water? What would the average smoker prefer, waiting a week to order a pollen press, smoking the keif or just doing this simple method?

END-This thread isn't for hash making experts. An expert wouldn't need to read this thread...DUH. This is to encourage people to try hashish.

Thanks for the input, however I would have to say only 1/3 of it was mildly necessary. It would be nice if you would edit or delete some of your misinformation. This is a thread based on fact's... Not rumour.

If we're going to get into the idealism of hash making then I'd of written take an organic chemistry course and use only lab grade equipment and medicinal grade cannabis.

Also the link you have posted directing to "purging" your oil, is exactly what that video I posted below it instructs... Which I deem as optional... Considering Honey oil is supposed to be oil like... Atleast I thought? If you want it to "rock up" then do that step I guess.

Coupla questions:
1) Which do you think creates a higher quality/more hash, the butane or the alcohhol method?
2) Wouldn't denatured alcohol work in place of isopropyl? Its usually about 90% ethanol and 10% methanol (although you'd have to check to make sure it doesn't contain any bitterants or vomit inducers)


edit: google is giving me conflicting answers. some people say it will make the hash foul and poisonous, others recommend it over isopropynol (its cheap as hell and available at home depot).

1) In my experiance I find the isopropyl alcohol method more practical and less dangerous. If done right then it will be very rewarding. The butane method I find to yield a very high potency hash however. Both are equally effective I would say but I always preferred the ISO method. What you put in is what you get out in general. Put in some NUGS your gonna have some delicious orange hash.
2) Denatured alcohol would work VERY similiarly, once again you don't many residues in your solvent a decent way to test this is to pour a little bit into a glass or white bowl/plate and let it evaporate. Check for residues (a black light can help with this as well). I believe most denatured alcohol contains benzene(which is a carcinogen). Benzene is negligable however we breathe it daily from car exhaust soo... If you can I would recommend getting some ever-clear(more expensive however)?
I have heard of acetone being used instead.
