ˈhash | Noun
A cannabis concentrate made by pressing or rubbing together the resin glands of (in this case) the hemp flower to form brick, slab, or rolled pieces. This CBD concentrate exhibits sand brown, chocolate brown, or greenish color.
“The Afghani CBD hash that I got from Mr. Hemp Flower is squishy goodness that smokes up nicely.”
“I absolutely love CBD hash because of its potency and effectiveness.”
What is CBD hash or hashish?
Like traditional hash made from marijuana, CBD hash is produced from the resin from the female hemp flower. Trichomes — or the tiny microscopic mushroom-looking outgrows or appendages on the female hemp flower — are the source of resin in the hemp plant. The resin is a powder-like substance where the hemp plant produces cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. When processed or pressed into solid bricks, the powdery substance becomes hash.
Traditional marijuana hash typically contains high tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) levels — the compound that gets you high. On the contrary, CBD hash made from the hemp plant with less than 0.3% THC has little to no tetrahydrocannabinol. Top-shelf concentrate of this type can contain up to 40% cannabidiol.
Is CBD hash legal?
If made from hemp with less than 0.3% THC grown under license, this concentrate is 100% legal in all 50 states. If made from marijuana, it’s legal in states where marijuana is legal for either (or both) recreational and medicinal purposes. To make sure you are getting a product that’s complacent with your laws, read the label, and ask additional questions regarding the source of the hash.
How to use CBD hash?
CBD hash is a very versatile hemp concentrate. You can smoke, vape, dab it, cook with it, or even put it in topicals. Smoking or dabbing it on itself or in combination with flower is the most common way of using this concentrate. It produces a thicker smoke than smoking flower alone. It’s important to note that when made with fresher resins, this concentrate makes you cough more than when made with aged resins. The reason behind it is that older resins have more time to dry, allowing moisture and terpenes to evaporate from the trichome glands.
What about eating it? Some people like to eat this concentrate straight out of the jar, but you may find its taste overwhelming. Putting it in edibles is a much tastier and easier-to-dose option.
Smoking CBD hash
When smoking or dabbing this concentrate, a little goes a long way. Like other hemp concentrates, CBD hash is a lot more potent than hemp flower. If you like putting it into your hemp pre-rolls and pre-roll blunts, put small parts that can be directly heated. Then, place your heat source under it and take short puffs. Don’t try to light it and let it burn as you smoke, because you’re wasting it.
When you use potent hemp concentrates, remember to start low and increase your dose gradually. You should let each puff do its work before you decide whether or not you need another one.
Vaping CBD Hash
More and more people prefer vaping over smoking, given that the latter carries bigger health hazards. To vape your hemp concentrate, you need certain accessories, like a vaporizer or an e-cigarette. A vaporizer can be quite an investment, but it’s a worthwhile one because it serves you for a long time.
You should also invest in top-shelf CBD hash. That’s because the quality of the hash can affect the longevity of the vaporizer. Low-quality concentrate may contain contaminants that could damage the tool, as the heat makes this concentrate gooey. Covering up your vaporizer using degummed hemp pads is a good move. They are affordable and protect the device nicely. If you use the liquid pad or a concentrate pad that comes with some vaporizers, note that cannabidiol will destroy both the pads and your vaporizer.
Opting for pollen CBD hash that’s powdery instead of sticky helps you preserve your vapor. This option allows you to break the concentrate up more evenly, and get nice and even vape. The sticky one makes it harder for you to cut it and create an even vape. It’s important to chop your hash, not fluff it. When you slightly burn it to fluff it, it will release some of its cannabidiol (CBD) early, which leaves you with less of it to inhale.
Where to find top-shelf CBD hash?
Get yours from Mr. Hemp Flower before it’s sold out. And stack up for a little while because you don’t want to go back and comment, “I’d buy more if it wasn’t already sold out.”
Seriously, top-shelf hash just flies off the shelves. It’s something we didn’t even see coming. Our squishy, tasty, and fast-acting CBD Hash is pretty potent, so a little goes a long way. It also burns slow, allowing you to enjoy its rich cannabinoid and terpene profile.
Cooking with CBD Hash
Before cooking with this concentrate, you should heat it to 110-116 degrees Celsius for an hour — a process known as decarboxylation. The dosing of CBD edibles is tricky, so here are two rules to follow:
- Different foods contribute to the speed of release of this concentrate differently: how quickly you’ll feel the effects of CBD in your body depends on the speed of metabolizing the food that contains it. If you put this concentrate into a smoothie, you’ll feel its effects more quickly rather than if you put in mac and cheese.
- Dose based on the food you cook it in: the dose should also correspond with the food that you cook this concentrate in. The amount of concentrate you put into your smoothie may be fine for another liquidy dish like a bowl of soup, but you’ll need a stronger dose for mac and cheese. So, always experiment with the amount, but start low and adjust your dose accordingly.
Topical use of CBD Hash
You can also find a lot of products that incorporate CBD hash into topicals. You can make your own salves, lotions, and creams using carrier oil. Topical use of CBD is ideal for conditions where you want immediate relief on a particular spot, like joints or muscles.
Difference between CBD hash and kief?
Hashish is one of the oldest and most potent cannabis concentrates. To make hash, manufacturers extract kief from the trichomes of the hemp plant. So, hash is basically kief that has been later heated and pressurized into a soft, green ball. When applying heat and pressure to kief, the composition of the concentrate changes due to the rupture of the resin glands.
