ELEPHANT AFGHANI HASHISH: INDICA – AAA+
Malana Elephant Hash is a legendary AAA+ import hash sourced from one of the motherland’s of hash – the subcontinent of India. Hailing from an ancient Indian village called Malana, essentially any and every cannabis product comes from this one tiny, tiny, region.
What makes Malana Elephant hash so special is the beginning product that is used. The landrace strains grown in Malana and the surrounding valleys are known for their naturally high THC content and above average resin glands. The cultivators behind this product begin by using fresh or live plants, rather than pressing their hash with dried or cured material – this results in a more aromatic and flavourful smoke in the end.
What is Hash?
Hashish, also referred to simply as hash, is a cannabis concentrate that’s typically inhaled or smoked. Hashish can be made using a few different methods, but the essential steps are removing the trichome glands from a cannabis plant and repeatedly compressing them to form a hardened, solid piece. It’s arguably one of the oldest types of cannabis concentrates, with written texts referring to hashish dating as far back as the 12th and 13th centuries. The varying look and feel of hashish are closely tied to its history and the method used to make it.
How to Smoke Hash
Hash may be used in a number of ways. Traditionally, hash has been consumed orally, either as a solid or infused into a beverage such as the traditional Indian drink bhang. Hash may also be smoked, either on its own or as a way to accompany traditional cannabis flowers. Some varieties of hash that have the ability to melt may also be vaporized on a hot surface, known as dabbing. When dabbing hash, screens are often used due to the fact that some resins leave carbon residue and will not melt completely, or at all. On the other end of the spectrum are high-quality hash oils (not to be confused with solvent extracts), such as full melt dry sift and full melt ice water hash, which have the ability to melt completely onto a nail, leaving zero residue.
Hash vs. Weed: What’s the Difference?
Both hash and weed come from the cannabis plant. Weed typically refers to the dried flowers of the plant, while hashish is a concentrate derived from the resin.
