It is a basic medical fact that for ordinary people it may be the same and one thing but in case of a medical professional or researcher hashish has the duality that exists naturally with the cannabis Sativa female plant.
Hashish, is a dope type drug made from Cannabis. It is used up by smoking a slender coin, typically in a play, bong, vaporizer or joint, or via oral administration (after decarboxylation). As pure hashish will not give that soothing feeling if used alone in a purified form, it is typically mixed with herbal cannabis, tobacco or another type of herbage specific for that of destruction.
There may be a lot of local terminologies used for it depending upon specific region or rural, multiple synonyms and alternative names.
First, if we consider a comparative analysis and relation of Hash to Cannabis, physically its structure is rich fibrous comprising of leafy material packed with essential amino acids and a long list of medicinal benefits. But let us tell you that it is only if it is used in its pure natural form, once it is mixed up with other abusive plants or drugs it becomes destructive. Second, the essence of the cannabis plant has long term interactions in that regard, also known as trichomes technically. That specific interaction is the main reason behind the production of “aromatic terpenes” and “cannabinoids” that generates the notorious therapeutic fables associated with the Hash.
The specific role of Trichomes
During all that process explained in the previous paragraph, Hashish is the predefined final stage of all that synthesis taking place deep inside the mixture. This is the vital magical moment when the essence of cannabis (at that stage the trichomes) gets separated from the actual ingredients of the plant itself. This is the achievement or the end product which stands there lie a trophy itself to be adhered by you.
All these chemical and synthesis related tasks to achieve the end product have no doubt been practiced for centuries; however, the role of cannabis is subject to legalization in the western world more than ever. Due to these restrictions the manufacturers have brought new innovational methods and scientific involvements in hash preparation that are bypassing the legal markets around the world in the form of various controlled medicines and drugs with the active ingredient of the very same end product.
Hash abuse over the past centuries
With the above-mentioned background, it will be very interesting for you as a reader when we tell you about the journey of Hash over all those years from a medicinal herb to an abused drug in various forms.
Though the true trail of cannabis enthusiasm just reached its peak in the 1960’s, and that was when hashish also found its way into the real-life limelight. Countries like Morocco, Nepal and Afghanistan witnessed a real increase in the Hippie culture which was a way to promote that herb in its abusive form. Later on, with the interest of foreigners, hashish was exported into the western countries with the help of various illegal channels.
Mainly tourists became the carriers for that purpose. Due to the cannabis ultimate hit to the mainstream for western tourists it became popular in no time making it a sizzling sensation. No matter the varieties being trafficked illegally were old world gifts from the past eras, they got popular very fast. These were mainly in the form of hard-pressed blocks or brick-like structures, which came to that shape from the application of heat and pressure.
Hashish was also used as an anesthetic in Germany in 1869. At these times, hashish was imported in great quantities especially from India and was named as Charis or Charas.
However, since the 2000s there has been a theatric turn due to an augment of homegrown weed production. While Morocco held a quasi-staple in the 1990s with the so-called 250g “soft soap bar” blocks, which were of moderate quality, Afghanistan has now been announced the biggest producer of higher nature hashish. Since then, the peculiarity in Europe has increased while the worth has remained fix.
What ever the reason be, there will always be a strong relation between all the stages and forms for Hash, also the relativity with Cannabis will never be out of question, as the trichomes and the seductive essence is the real spirit behind all that dreamy saga.
