Super Nepalese Hash

Super Nepalese Hash

Super Nepalese hash takes one step above any other Nepalese regional made hashish. Always known for super high quality sticky black Nepalese hashish. Gets you very high. The concentration of THC is astounding. This hashish is not usually pressed with a machine. It’s hand pressed leaving behind a beautiful soft flexible texture. Some will argue their best to make sure you know the good super hash comes from Nepal.

The make up of the original marijuana genetics leans towards that of the indica phenotype.  There has to be a hash sitting atop the throne. This product is very expensive hashish but worth the money. Made in traditional hand crafted techniques passed down from generations of hash makers. Most popular in the 1970 to 1990 eras. Super Nepalese is hard to obtain these days with the advent of easy hash making techniques.

Potency of Super Nepalese Hash

Simply by taking a close look a well seasoned veteran can tell the potency is superb. Touching certainly let’s the user know this is good flexible THC glands stuck together. Smelling lets the seasoned veteran know as the smell will immediately reach the brain like a super toke or glass rig shatter hit. Potency is always off the charts. Never mind the THC percentages. If you can get your hands on some, just try the real super Nepalese hash to find out. It’s rare but obtainable in certain communities if you know what I mean.

Effect of Super Nepalese Hash

The effect of super Nepalese hash is astonishing.  On an average 200 pound male the immediate effect is euphoria. Straight to the head. The body stone follows. I’ve always loved to be active while partaking in the delight. I’m from the 70’s and 80’s where my middle Eastern friends would bring it around. You know when a big man takes a hit and sees stars that the hash is fantastic. Be careful how much you fill your lungs up. First time users will not be expecting the thickness combined with super smooth taste.

Temple Ball Hash

Temple Ball Hash

Temple Ball Hash is most well known for its super sticky texture. Usually wrapped in cellophane or something similar to contain it. Otherwise it sticks to anything therefor being hard to remove at times. The oils within the Temple Ball Hash make it famous. Origins stem from regions in Afghanistan where tea houses were popular.  A good Afghan marijuana strain creates a wonderful recreational drug. These days you can find black hash at coffee shops anywhere. Super-potent Temple Ball Hashish was originally exported as fingers, sticks, hooves, half moons, slabs and bricks that had a wide array of colors, tastes, and profiles. It is now becoming a rare item.

Making Temple Ball Hash

Making temple ball hash was done by hand rubbing dry marijuana flower tops. When marijuana is nicely dried the THC will rub off quickly. This pile of THC is sticky. It can easily be manipulated into ball shapes. People used to make this hash by hand therefor skin would be visible under a microscope. Wonderful to know you would be smoking some ancient hash maker’s skin.

The resinous texture combines with a sweet, tangy taste. This combination makes it distinguishable from other hashish. I love the narcotic, dream-inducing high. I’m from the 1970 to 1980 era of hash making. Smoking temple ball hash was best in a glass pipe. You wanted that taste to be everything. I couldn’t imagine mixing it with tobacco but that’s what people like to do. Nice to know you can hit a glass rig for the purity of a THC hit.

Nepalese Stick Hash

Nepalese Stick Hash

Strain: Nepalese (Nepal)

Cultivation: There are small Cannabis cultivation entities everywhere in the Highlands of Nepal. The weather permits a long growing marijuana season.

Production: The resin from dry marijuana plants is collected by carefully rubbing the buds between both hands. The THC simply falls off into a fine pile.  Later the collected resin is pressed to homogenous Hash-Balls (Temple Balls). Before shipment these balls are pressed in slabs.

Color: Black on the outside, dark-brown inside.

Smell: The aroma of Nepalese Stick hash is very spicy, heavy and quite sweet. It is particularly potent if a piece of Hash is broken-up into a pipe.

Taste: The flavor is highly aromatic and sweet. More so than Afghani hashish but still less harsh on the throat. The taste lingers for hours if you do not eat or drink.

Consistency: The texture is usually somewhat harder than Afghani hashish. It’ll still be soft enough to be kneaded at body temperature. Makes it a little harder to break up into fine powder. Stays sticky all the time even when allowed to dry out.

Effect: You can expect a very physical and stony high. This is one of the best high quality hash strains in the world.

Potency: Nepalese Stick Hash is always in the potent to very potent range.( about 11%-15% THC)

Availability: Mostly found in coffee shops, medical dispensaries and recreational hash stores. Very rare.

Nepalese Stick Hash News

The best Hash comes from Nepal. This stuff is simply the best – if it really is Nepalese and not some Afghani sold as Nepalese. Usually Nepalese is very expensive, in Amsterdam the best Hash in many Coffee-Shops is nothing else than Nepalese. Personally I think it’s always worth the money, at least if you like the stony high it produces. Unfortunately Nepali has been very rare around here in the last years. From time to time small quantities become available.

Netherlands Hash

Netherlands Hash

Strain: Nether-Dope (Netherlands) Hashish

Cultivation: This Hash is produced from Cannabis plants grown in the Netherlands. Plants are usually cultivated Indoors but there are also small Outdoors and Greenhouse cultivations.

Production: The manufacture method varies with the producer. Most of the Hash is produced thru screening like in Morocco, however there is also a small quantity of hand-rubbed Hash produced using the Afghani method (which of course is much better). However only a very small quantity of the Weed is transformed in Hashish.

Color: Usually quite green, however this varies with the kind of Weed used and the producer.

Smell: Usually quite grass or skunk – like, but depends from the kind of Weed.

Taste: Same as above.

Consistency: A lot of the Dutch Hashish is not pressed correctly (that’s an art) and usually beaks apart too easily. However recently the consistency improved, they seem to learn quickly. The above of course doesn’t refer to hand-rubbed Hash which is very soft like Afghani. Often the hash is simply the female heads crushed and pressed under huge weights to form a solid lump which very easily powders up.

Effect: The kind of High from Netherlands Hash depends from the strain of Weed which was used, however usually the high is quite active and cerebral.

Potency: Potent to very potent, this stuff is better than any other kind of Hash available to the average user. It even beats most Nepali’s and nearly every kind Afghan. (Up to 59% THC)

Availability: Very, very rare outside the Netherlands and surrounding countries. I wouldn’t hold your breath waiting for this stuff to appear on the British market.

Netherlands Hash News

The quality varies widely however the price is always high. There isn’t any standard denomination for the Dutch Hash. High quality powder can come under the name Sensi-Hash which is simply highly compressed THC crystals.

Moroccan Slate Hash

Moroccan Slate Hash

Strain: Moroccan (Morocco)

Cultivation: Cannabis is cultivated in the Northern regions, especially in the province of Ketama. In 1992 Morocco cultivated at least 30’000 acres of Cannabis. This produces about 15’000 tons of Hashish, which are exported to Europe (especially Spain, France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Switzerland and Italy).

Color: Moroccan Slate hash is greenish to brown. Due to the relatively short growing season the plants retain a quite green color at harvest.

Smell: Lightly aromatic, not spicy.

Taste: Compared to other kinds of Hash the taste is very mild. Personally speaking the taste of Morocco is one of my favorites, it’s very soft on the throat (especially in good varieties like Pollen or Zero-Zero) and reminds of Weed.

Consistency: Quite variable, however generally quite hard. Usually Morocco is sold in 0,5 – 1,5cm thick slabs. Pollen is less pressed than normal Morocco, ZeroZero is very soft, almost like Afghani.

Effect: Compared to other kinds of Hash it produces a quite cerebral and active high.

Potency: Light to medium, only rarely potent. Even very good Morocco can’t be called particularly strong. (0.9%-10% THC)

Availability: Moroccan Slate Hash is the most common kind of hash on the European market, only recently it became possible for the average consumer to find other kinds of Hash on the street. Morocco is sold under many names: Standard, Melange, Premier, Zero, Zero-Zero, Sputnik, Pollen, Chocolate and probably many others. Unfortunately these names aren’t very useful, dealers sell everything which is slightly better than Standard under a variety of names. Real Pollen is light-brown in color, sold in thick, lightly compressed slabs. When heated it expands much more than other Moroccan’s. I should add that botanically speaking the definition Pollen is completely wrong. Of course the Hash is produced from Female resin glands and not from male pollens (which contain virtually no THC).

Moroccan Slate Hash News

Various: Even though the locals will offer you hash at very, very good prices, be very careful. Don’t tell them where you’re staying, don’t let the hotel staff catch you with a spliff. Paranoia is a useful tool when it saves you from a five year prison sentence!

Moroccan Primero Hash

Moroccan Primero Hash

Colour: The colour of Moroccan Primero Hash is light to dark brown. However sometimes you will see a greenish tinge inside. Due to the relatively short growing marijuana season the weed plants retain a good green color at harvest time. Now wee see most cannabis from Morocco undergoes extensive alteration to create an exportable (or profitable) product : colour usually is light/dark brown.

Smell: The initial odor of Moroccan Primero Hash is lightly aromatic, not spicy. It is quite distinctive in nature. The stronger the smell the stronger the Primero hash will be. The very strongest pollen should be detectable by smell from a distance away, sealed in a plastic bag. You’ll love recognizing this phenotype.

Taste: Compared to other kinds of hash the taste is very mild. You’ll find it soft on the throat (especially in good varieties like Pollen or Zero-Zero) and reminds of excellent weed.

Effects: Fasten your seat belt as your head is about to get a belt. People love the intense cerebral high. Great for active people. Can make superb medicine for those in need.

Availability: Moroccan Primero Hash has become a scarce commodity. Unless you live around the Moroccan region you can forget about it.

Moroccan Primero Hash News

This hashish used to be the most prevent in the world. Today’s hash making techniques along with the availability of so many kinds of weed lead to local hash products. No need for importing hash any more. This is true for almost any country these days. The end of marijuana prohibition is here.

Moroccan Polm Hash

Moroccan Polm Hash

The most commonly found form of Moroccan Polm Hash, particularly in Britain (and also found in France, Italy and Spain) is the ‘Soap Bar’ which comes in an slabs of 1.5-2cm thick slabs, is hard, and has a dark edge to it. This hash has to be heated for it to be smoked and will not really ‘fluff’ up when heated and crumbled. (Incidentally, Soap Bar is considered a bit of a joke by Moroccans, who don’t actually produce the stuff. Traffickers and mafia gangs produce the ‘soap bar’ by adding all sorts of crap to otherwise good cannabis in Spain!)

Distinguishing characteristic is a super light brown color. This feature has not changed over the years. The unmistakable color makes the Moroccan Polm Hash easy to spot in a crowd of hashish.

Moroccan Polm Hash – News Update

This hash is no longer of any value on the marijuana market. People make real good hash for cheap. The only way you buy this is if you get fooled. Not to put the hash down. You still get baked. However there are way too many better choices out there for cheaper prices.

Moroccan Caramelo Hash

Moroccan Caramelo Hash is usually the best grade hashish available in Spanish coffee shops. Spain seems to lead the world in sales. The chunks of hash normally weigh around 5 grammes. The hashish  chunks have been hand shaped by artisans. When you purchase the best quality hash be prepared to pay a little more. I personally will pay for quality. This is a lesson learned over and over. Go ahead and pay if you know it’s good.

Taste: Get ready for an overall sweet fruit flavor. It’ll linger on the taste buds for quite awhile. It’s the kind of flavor people want to enjoy continuously.

Effects: Moroccan Caramelo Hash has a great body stone. Superb for body ailments. Will make you feel great. Almost invincible.

Moroccan Caramelo Hash News

Fact or Fiction: The reason for their distinct ovaloid shape is that they are often carried in the gut of the courier. Sometimes they are inserted into the body via the anus but more often they are swallowed. Female couriers have another option. Unfortunately hashish smuggled in the gut often becomes tainted. The presentation of this hashish +/- 5 grammes, ovaloid, blackish exterior, rich brown interior, is a marker of quality.

Yellow Lebanese Hash

Yellow Lebanese Hash

Yellow Lebanese Hash

Strain: Lebanese (Lebanon)

Cultivation: The most important Cannabis-Fields are located in the valley of Baalbek. The fields are cultivated on very large scale, many of them using modern machinery. The production is very industrially oriented, tradition is not very involved in the Hash-Business.

Production: The Cannabis-Plants are left on the field until they are nearly dry. By this time they will have acquired a brown-reddish color (some Chlorophyll is destroyed by the UV-Rays of the Sun). Finally the plants are brought in a barn to be dried completely. Hashish is produced in the same way as in Morocco, basically the buds are carefully rubbed over a fine silk-cloth, the resulting powder can be pressed together. Than finer the mesh used, than better the resulting Hashish. The Hash-Powder is stored inside 35kg plastic bags, in this form it can be kept for a long time without losing much potency (because the resin glands are still closed). In the winter months the pressing begins. Hash-Powder is filled in linen or cotton bag and pressed under great pressure. On the surface of the Hashish the structure of the tissue which was used can be clearly seen. Usually the Hash is pressed in slabs of 100g, 200g (usually) or 1000g (1kg). There is some Hash which is pressed by hand like in Afghanistan, unfortunately it’s usually not exported.

Color: There are two kinds of Lebanese-Hash: Yellow Lebanese, which is yellowish and Red Lebanese which is reddish-brown (very similar to standard Morocco in color). The Red-Lebanese is made from riper plants.

Smell: Spicy to very spicy, refreshing smell. Taste: Very spicy, harsher than Turk or Morocco. Some Lebanese-Hash is harsher than Afghani, especially when smoked in a Bong. Lebanese is quite an acquired taste.

Consistency: Usually the slabs are very thick (about 2-3cm) and not elastic. However when you cut it, you can clearly see that it contains big quantities of resin and that it can be cut easily. Some kinds of Lebanese, like Afghani have the family stem on them. Very good Lebanese can be re-pressed by hand like Afghani due to it’s high resin-content.

Effect: Compared to most other Hash varieties the High is quite cerebral, however more stony than Morocco or Turk. Of course, the yellow kind produces a more cerebral high than the red kind (which is riper and contains more CBN than THC).

Potency: Usually not very strong, somewhat stronger than Morocco. However there are also very good varieties of Lebanon which are very strong. As already mentioned the high resin content of the better varieties can be clearly seen and it can be re-pressed by hand. (1.0%-18% THC)

Yellow Lebanese Hash News

Availability: Quite rare, good qualities are very rare. However Lebanese is the third most common kind of Hash in Europe (after Morocco and Afghani). Unfortunately most of the Lebanese which is sold is quite old and dry, fresh and resinous Lebanese is very rare in the last years. Usually the price-range can be compared to that of Afghani. I noticed that Yellow Lebanese Hash is somewhat rarer than the red.

Afghan Hash

Afghan Hash

Strain: Afghani (Afghanistan) circa 2003

Hashish is produced practically everywhere in and around Afghanistan. The best kinds of Hash originate from the Northern provinces between Hindu Kush and the Russian border (Balkh, Mazar-i-Sharif). As tourist in Afghanistan it will be very difficult to be allowed to see Cannabis-Fields or Hash Production. The plants which are used for Hash production are very small and bushy Indicas. In Afghanistan Hashish is pressed by hand under 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. In Afghanistan the product is stored in the form of Hash-Balls (because a round ball has the less contact with air), however, before being shipped, the Hash is pressed in 100g slabs. Good qualities of Afghani are signed with the stem of the producing family. Sometimes Hash of this kind is sold as Royal Afghani. Color: Black on the outside, dark greenish or brown inside. Can sometimes look kind of grayish on the outside when left in contact with the air.

Potency of Afghan Hash

Potent, sometimes very potent. It’s easy to underestimate the potency of Afghani since the high takes about 5 minutes to reach it’s full potential. (1.7%-6.5% THC) Availability: Quite rare, especially good qualities. Beside Moroccan Hash, Afghani is the most common kind of Hash on the European market. The price is usually higher than Moroccan but quality differs greatly.

If I have the choice of Moroccan or Afghani then I would go for the stonier and more narcotic Afghani. Various: The softest Afghani isn’t always the best – coconut or other oils are often added in the originating country. There is also some Hash-Oil which is being produced from Afghani, usually the quality is excellent. Most people I know are bored of Afghani if they have to smoke it for a long time, on the other side there are people who love this stuff. Beware: Turkish Hash is sometimes offered under the name of Red Afghani.

Effect of Afghan Hash

Afghan hash can be considered good medicine for many ailments. Because of the severe potency the effect can be almost narcotic. Once you enjoy Afghan hash you’ll receive a very physical and stony high.

Smell and Taste of Afghan Hash

The smell of this hash is a consistent spicy to very spicy aroma. You could use this for simple aroma therapy. Once you vaporize or combust afghan hash you’ll still smell the same great spice cleanly.

The taste can be nice and spicy, somewhat harsh on the throat. Afghani can induce lots of coughing in inexperienced users. Consistency: Soft, can be kneaded very easily.
