HISTORY:

Hashish consists of the THC-rich resinous material of the cannabis plant, which is collected, dried, and then compressed into a variety of forms, such as balls, cakes, or cookie-like sheets. Pieces are then broken off, placed in pipes, and smoked. The Middle East, North Africa, Pakistan, and Afghanistan are the main sources of hashish. The THC content of hashish that reached the United States, where demand is limited, averaged about 5 percent in the 1990s.
 

INFORMATION:

The sticky resin of the marijuana plant is used to make hash.  It can be collected by either thrashing the plants over cloth or plastic, and collecting the resin as it falls, or by simply rubbing the buds between the hands causing the resin to stick to them.  Once the resin is collected, a small amount of water may be added and worked in to assure a uniform consistency.  As a general rule, the darker the hash, the higher the quality.

Hash oil is a refined oily extract of the marijuana plant that has a very high THC content, generally ranging from 20-60%.  Hash oil is light sensitive and is usually packed in dark colored glass vials.

Hash oil varies in color from a light honey, red, green, brown, and dark coal black. Hash oil is typically added to marijuana to enhance its potency. 


STREET NAMES:

Shish, kif, charas, and nup.  Names such as finger, candy bar, surfboard, and patties refer to the shape in which the hash is formed.  Names like Leb, blonde Lebanese, black Afghani, and Moroccan indicated the color of the hash and its country or origin.
