What is CBD Hash?
Exactly like cannabis hash (hashish) CBD hash is made from the resin of cannabis plants. The cannabis resin is made up of essential oils, cannabinoids, phenols, terpenes and flavonoids of the plant that are in trichomes of female cannabis plants. This powder-like substance (also known as kief) is pressed into solid bricks of cannabis hash.
Regular cannabis hash will have a high level of THC, THC is the compound that gets you “stoned”. CBD hashish, on the other hand, is made from female hemp plants and has very little THC with high levels of CBD (Cannabidiol) instead.
CBD Hash can either be solid, resinous or in some cases jelly-like. Pressed CBD Hashish is usually solid, whereas CBD Has that has been purified with water, sometimes called “bubble hash”, is a paste-like substance which has varying hardness and malleability. CBD Has can also vary in colour from light to dark brown, depending on how much plant material was leftover in the process.
The History of Hash
Cannabis Hash has been used for a long time, centuries in fact, and there is no solid evidence to when it first appeared. There is a long history and connection with North India, where it was a social tradition to produce hashish (locally known as charas). They believed the cannabis resin from the plant was burned in the booz rooz – a ceremony of Ancient Persia
Historians found the first mention of “hashish” embossed in a pamphlet from Cairo, 1123 CE, which accused Nizari Muslims of being “hashish eaters”. Hash was consumed as cannabis edibles in the Muslim world and people didn’t start to smoke cannabis resin until after the introduction of tobacco in the 1500’s.
During the 16th and 17th centuries the spread of hashish can be associated with the highly increasing popularity of tobacco when users began to mix the two substances together. There was also a big improvement in manufacturing and sieving techniques which made the creation of cannabis resin and hash much more efficient than the traditional methods allowing for much bigger production to meet the increasing demand.
By the 1800’s, cannabis Hash had made an appearance in Europe. This is likely due to the exposure of hashish to Napoleon’s troops during his campaign in Egypt. Not long after this, doctors and botanists across Europe started to promote the benefits of medicinal cannabis to their patients.
By the 1840’s a number of reputable doctors had been experimenting with cannabis hash to treat a number of diseases – particularly related to psychiatric practices. Other factors followed suit and the amount of hash being shipped to Europe dramatically increased.
During the second half of the nineteenth century, hashish and cannabis in general continued to grow in popularity, with only a small number of doctors warning against it. Big pharmaceutical companies in Europe and the USA started ru to manufacture cannabis for medical use including cannabis extracts, cannabis oils and CBD Hash.
Currently, the majority of the world’s cannabis hash comes from Morocco but it’s also manufactured on a large scale in Nepal, Afghanistan and India. Up until 2008, marijuana hash was the most popular form of cannabis used in Europe, now, similar to the United States, herbal cannabis is more popular amongst users.
How Is CBD Jelly Hash Made?
Cannabis Solids are one of the oldest forms of cannabis extracts known to man. There are a number of techniques that can be used to make cannabis hash and these generally differ from country to country. The most popular process of creating CBD hash is to use ice water. The trichomes react to the cold temperature of the ice water and separate from the plant matter. Once separated, the trichomes stock together and once they are dry they are pressed in to CBD hashish.
Another popular method of making marijuana hash is using the dry sift method. The cannabis buds are frozen to help separate the trichomes from the plant and are sifted through a fine mesh screen. The trichomes are then pressed into hash using either heat or a compression method to form a block of CBD Hash.
Hand rolling hash is the process that is usually undertaken when whilst harvesting. This is still a popular method of making hash in some parts of India and the Middle East. This is particularly common when creating CBD jelly hash or sticky hash. Trichomes will stick to to the hands of the harvester which will form a black layer of sticky cannabis resin. Once there is a reasonable amount visible on the palms of the hand, the hands are rubbed together to form small spheres of hash. We have a number of CBD jelly hash spheres above.
