Color: There are two kinds of Lebanese-Hash: Yellow Lebanese, which is yellowish and Red Lebanese which is reddish-brown (very similar to standard Morocco in color). The Red-Lebanese is made from riper plants.
Smell: Spicy to very spicy, refreshing smell.
Taste: Very spicy, harsher than Turk or Morocco. Some Lebanese-Hash is harsher than Afghani, especially when smoked in a Bong. Lebanese is quite an acquired taste.
Consistency: Usually the slabs are very thick (about 2-3cm) and not elastic. However when you cut it, you can clearly see that it contains big quantities of resin and that it can be cut easily. Some kinds of Lebanese, like Afghani have the family stem on them. Very good Lebanese can be re-pressed by hand like Afghani due to it’s high resin-content.
Effect: Compared to most other Hash varieties the High is quite cerebral, however more stony than Morocco or Turk. Of course, the yellow kind produces a more cerebral high than the red kind (which is riper and contains more CBN than THC).
Potency: Usually not very strong, somewhat stronger than Morocco. However there are also very good varieties of Lebanon which are very strong. As already mentioned the high resin content of the better varieties can be clearly seen and it can be re-pressed by hand. (1.0%-18% THC)
Hash, also known as hashish, is a cannabis concentrate product made by collecting and concentrating the trichomes (kief) directly from the cannabis flower. When these trichomes are collected, they’re compressed with heat and pressure into different forms such as balls or cakes, resulting in textures that are either solid or paste-like.
Hash comes in many forms, flavours, and different variations and each offers its own unique flavours, properties, and effects. While regular cannabis flower tends to have an average potency of 10-30% THC, hash can range from 60-75%!
Hash originally came from India, when cannabis cultivators, in the process of treating and processing cannabis plants, would take a dull knife or even their fingers to scrape off the kief that has collected in the palm of their hands and compressing it into hash.
Today, cannabis extraction technology has evolved to better extract, capture, and concentrate kief to produce superior hash products. Spicy and aromatic Pakistani Hash, potent and powerful Lebanese Hash and clean and fresh tasting bubble hash are just a few of the selections available to tokers today! With so many varieties of hash, there’s bound to be one that’s right for you.
