WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW WHAT’S INSIDE A BRICK OF ‘SMOKE’? HERE ARE THE CLARIFICATIONS AND DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CLASSIC AND LEGAL HASHISH
In the field of hemp and legal hemp, in addition to the inflorescence of the plant and CBD oil, another derivative is often heard of hashish.
Even though it originated in ancient times, many people still do not know precisely what it is, what it is made of and why it is so popular.
What will the mysterious hashish contain in the form of bars or balls?
Why is the legal version of it becoming more widespread lately?
Here are some clarifications on this cannabis derivative.
Hashish bun: what is it made of?
If you’ve ever wondered what’s in the hashish bricks when you see the pictures, you’ll find the answer in the following lines.
Hashish, also called ‘smoke’, is made from the resin of the marijuana plant.
To prepare it, the trichomes are separated from the hemp inflorescences, and the resulting powder, called Kief, is pressed and almost always heated. The mixture is then processed, and it is at this time the small spheres or typical loaves are made.
In short, there is nothing more to quality hash browns than a concentrate of pollen and a very high percentage of cannabinoids!
Do you understand why they look the way they do, and why cannabis enthusiasts have appreciated them for centuries and centuries?
However, the cheapest hashish may contain traces of foreign substances that have been deliberately added to increase the volume of the product and the yield from its sale. It is known as ‘cut hashish’, a product that, unfortunately, is not uncommon on the illegal market.
But, why is it that sometimes hashish is round, and occasionally, it takes on a flat, square shape?
It depends on both the consistency of the smoke and the size of the product to be obtained.
The softer resin is usually processed manually and stored in the form of small balls; the ‘firmer’ resin, on the other hand, is processed and pressed to produce lumps of a predetermined size and weight (on average, the lumps weigh between 100 and 250 grams) before being placed on the market.
Legal hashish bars and balls: what’s in it?
The composition of legal hashish differs from that of illegal hashish for several reasons. First, legal hashish can also be purchased in Switzerland because it is free of the psychotropic cannabinoid THC.
Only hemp plants from genetics with a low active ingredient content are processed to make light hashish.
And, otherwise, does the composition remain the same?
Actually, not always.
Some types of legal hashish are made by processing Kief extracted from light cannabis; others are made by processing plant resins extracted from other plants, to which pure CBD and flavourings are then added.
The latter is undoubtedly an innovative production method and—while simulating the scents and flavours of ‘original’ hashish—offers the guarantee of containing no trace of THC.
In the product sheets for the legal hash, which you can find for sale in our Justbob store, you can find many interesting details on this subject.
Each item, different in characteristics and consistency, has been made from plants from different cultures, but always according to the highest quality and safety standards.
How much does a brick of hashish cost?
We have clarified the difference between a brick of light hashish and a brick of illegal hashish. Still, you are probably wondering whether there are also differences in cost between the two products.
Smuggled hashish has a much higher price than CBD weed hashish.
If you wonder why, the reason is that selling and buying the former is not allowed by law, and therefore, those who import and sell it run risks.
Considering that there are so many types and that, depending on the area, there may be more or fewer costs associated with transporting the product. However, it isn’t easy to talk about exact prices.
We can say that a 100 g hashish loaf could cost around 500 euro.
A brick of Cannabidiol hash, on the other hand, costs on average between EUR 150 and 350.
Now you know what the mysterious and aromatic smoke cakes contain.
After this analysis, we would like to remind you that only legal hashish may be purchased in Switzerland (absolutely not hashish with a high THC content) and that the laws regarding its consumption are unclear.
