What is hash?

Hash is basically the form of marijuana that you smoke. It is made when the trichrome in cannabis is isolated and pressed. The process of pressing helps to concentrate the THC and other cannabinoids into a malleable and gooey material that is hard to ignite if it isn’t dusted with a bit of weed.

There are several types of hash you can smoke. Some are made from just one weed strain while some contain multiple strains. Here is a list of common types of marijuana hash:

1.) Afghan Black Hash

This particular hash is dark black or brown in color. It is made from resin extracted from cannabis plants grown in the mountains of Afghanistan. It has a hardness level of 1, meaning it will crumble when you try to break it. The average THC content in this type of hash is 15 percent.

2.) Indian Charas Hash

This marijuana hash is made from hand-rolled resin collected from cannabis plants grown in the Indian subcontinent. The appearance of this hash is dark grey or black, crumbling easily when you try to break it. The THC content in this hash is not very high, averaging around 4 percent.

3.) Lebanese Hash

This particular type of hash gets its name from the country in which it was originally produced. Like the Indian Charas, this hash is made from hand-rolled resin and has an appearance of black or dark brown crumbles. The THC content in this type of hash ranges from 5 to 15 percent.

4.) Moroccan Hash

Like other Moroccan goods, this particular type of hash has a reputation for being high quality and expensive. It is usually sold under the name ‘Black Gold’ and has the appearance of dark brown crumbles with a hardness level ranging from 2 to 3. The average THC content for Black Gold ranges from 10 percent to 15 percent.

5.) Nepalese Hash

This type of hash originates in Nepal and has a greenish color with an appearance similar to that of Lebanese hash. The hardness level for this hash ranges from 1 to 2, meaning it crumbles under its own weight when you try to break it up. The average THC content for this hash falls between 10 and 12 percent.

6.) Pakistani Hash or ‘Paki’

This type of hash was first produced in Pakistan in the 1970s when Afghanistan became hostile toward foreigners and they were forced to find new sources for their hash products. Pakistani hash has a dark green color with an appearance similar to that of Nepalese hash. The hardness level for Paki ranges from 1 to 2, similar to Nepalese hash. The average THC content for this type of hash is around 12 percent.

7.) Scottish Hash or ‘Skunk’

The name ‘Skunk’ comes from the smell that is associated with smoking this hash. Scottish weed growers have developed a strain of cannabis that has a very pungent smell when burned. This marijuana strain was later used to make an increasingly potent form of marijuana hash that has become popular in Europe and other parts of the world. This type of hash has a dark green color with an appearance similar to that of Pakistani or Nepalese hash. The hardness level for Scottish Skunk ranges from 1 to 2, meaning it breaks apart easily when you try to crumble it up. The average THC content for this type of hash is 15 percent or more. Some Skunk varieties have been known to reach THC levels as high as 35 percent! This makes Scottish Skunk one of the strongest hashes on the planet
