Hash – Red Lebanese
Lebanon is renowned for their high-grade, AAA+ hashish. Hash is made from the resin glands of the cannabis plant, and is then pressed into a brick shape and heated to form what we know as hashish. Red Lebanese Hash is particularly special, as it is known for its potent cerebral effects and unique aroma. It is made from the landrace strains of cannabis from the Baalbek valley, which have adapted to the harsh climate and formed thick coats of THC trichomes. The Red in Red Lebanese hash comes from the natural drying and curing process of the raw cannabis plant – cultivators leave the plants on the field until they’re just about ready, and during this process they acquire a unique red tint from sunlight, and its’ own natural pistils which give off a orange-reddish colour. Once the hashish is processed, it is left to dry and properly cure. The Lebanese process of curing hashish is what separates their hash from other regions in the Middle East, and involves aging the hash for one or two entire harvesting seasons, which can last anywhere between 4-8 months in total. This allows the hash to develop an ideal consistency that is pliable, yet stiff enough to work, and also allows for the hash to deepen its’ aroma and flavours.
What Is Hash
Kief is made up of the resin glands or trichomes of the cannabis plant. It is separated from the rest of the plant matter, and is basically pure THC concentrate. Hash is the result of the separation of the THC or trichome resin glands of the cannabis plant separating from the plant material itself. The pure THC or kief is then generally pressed into a brick shape with heat to form hash or ‘hashish’ as others may know it as. Our AAA+ grade Afghani hashish is of the highest quality, guaranteed.
