Red Seal Hash
We love Hash in Canada. Hashish is produced practically everywhere in and around Afghanistan. The best kinds of Hash (such as Red Seal Hash) originate from the Northern provinces between the Hindu Kush and the Russian border (Balkh, Mazar-i-Sharif).
The plants which are used for Hash production are very small and bushy Indicas. In Afghanistan Hashish is pressed by hand after the addition of a small quantity of tea or water. The Hashish is worked on until it becomes highly elastic and has a strong aromatic smell.
The product is then stored in the form of Hash-Balls (because a round ball has the least contact with air). However, before being shipped, the Hash is pressed in slabs. Good qualities of Afghani are signed with the stem of the producing family. In this case, you can see the standard “Red Seal” stamp of approval.
Here are some common ways in which you can consume hash. Have a look at the list and choose the one that suits your preferences:
- Add it to a spliff with weed and tobacco. If you’re in possession of a dry block, you can simply crush it and add it when rolling a joint. Use it with tobacco or mix it with marijuana. The second method implies a more powerful high, something that you’ll probably want to experience if you’re an adventure seeker.
- Place the chunk of the hash in a pipe. Some people claim that when using a pipe or bong for smoking hash, much of the product will be wasted. On the other hand, pipes and bongs allow a user to avoid the toxins and other carcinogens present in smoke, so it’s a way healthier way of consuming hash than rolling it in a joint.
- Dab it. Since hashish belongs to a group of cannabis concentrates, it’s easy to use a glass rig and simply dab it, just like you dab the shatter or wax. This method is particularly useful when using the full-melt hash.
- Use a hot knife. How to smoke hash like an old school hippie? Just grab two knives and heat them up on a stove. Once they reach the right temperature, add a little chunk of hash or hash oil to the blade and top it with the other knife. After that, inhale the smoke through a pen or straw, whatever lies within your reach at this particular moment.
- Use a vaporizer. Today’s vape pens are dedicated to consuming cannabis concentrates, so you can inhale the hash with your device and enjoy one of the healthy ways of having your brown paste. Your portable vaporizer’s manufacturer probably has a manual for it, so you just need to act in accordance with the instruction.
