Hash or Hashish
Hash or (Hashish) is an extracted cannabis product made up of compressed or purified preparations of trichomes from the cannabis plant. It is defined as the separated resin, whether crude or purified, obtained from the cannabis plant. The resin contains ingredients such as THC and other cannabinoids but they are often in higher concentrations than regular unprocessed cannabis flower. Cannabis flowers on average have a range of about 15-25% THC, while hash on the other hand sees THC ranges around 40-50%. It is typically consumed by smoking a small amount, typically in a pipe, a bong, a vaporizer or a joint, or by eating it (after decarboxylation). Since pure hashish will not burn well if rolled alone in a joint, it is typically mixed with cannabis flowers, tobacco or another type of herb when smoking. Hashish may be solid or resinous - pressed hashish is usually solid, whereas water purified hash - often called "bubble melt hash", or simply "bubble hash" - is a pasty like substance with varying solidity - its color, which is generally brown, can vary from transparent to yellow, tan, black, or red depending on how and from what plants it's made from. Making bubble melt hash involves stirring cannabis into a bucket of extremely cold water to freeze and break off the trichome glands from the plant material. The weed-water mix is then poured through a series of three to five increasingly fine nylon mesh screens. The first bag collects all of the plant waste material, while the others collect the wet trichomes. Once dried, this hash can get up into the 70 to 80 percent THC range.
