What is Hash? Hash is the abbreviation of the word “hashish”, which originates from the Arabic language, translating to mean “grass.” It is produced by collecting and pressing cannabis resin into hard blocks that resemble the all-famous “lebkuchen” gingerbread dough; it can be soft and pliable or stiff and brittle. It induces similar effects to those from smoking dried flowers, with one simple exception — it’s much stronger than the regular weed, with THC levels between 25-60%. If you’re looking for a smooth transition from cannabis flowers to concentrates, the hash will be your best bet.
