Hello, welcome to The Stone, The Best Cannabis Deals from a Colorado Dispensary. Today we’re going to discuss cannabis, particularly the difference between hash and weed.
Differences Between Hash & Weed
Hash is made from the resin of the cannabis plant. Weed is made up of dried flowers or leaves ground into a powdery substance. Therefore, this article will focus more on marijuana than hash.
Hash is made by removing the trichomes from cannabis leaves. The resin, which contains cannabinoids such as THC, is collected over different periods during the plant’s growth cycle. There are many ways to manage this resin – whichever way works best for your situation should be used. For instance, if you’re using a bucket with holes in the bottom, using a screen at the bottom of your bucket to filter out resin would be more effective. The sieve method is another way to collect hash. This involves filtering through different stages to remove plant matter and water from the cannabis. When you are ready to smoke your hash, it’s usually pressed into a brick or put into a pipe.
Hash will be darker in color and very potent – usually brown-blackish in color with a solid earthy/piney taste. The stone it produces is relaxing, will leave you feeling relaxed for hours, and sometimes even send you to sleep! However, it doesn’t last as long as a weed, so if you’re smoking and don’t feel anything after half an hour, you should probably take another toke. Another difference is that weed tastes grassy and can smell very strongly depending on what it’s been treated with, whereas hash will have a faint smell and taste mostly of plant matter.
Hash was the first way people discovered how to get high from cannabis, and it can be potentially dangerous as people sometimes use hazardous chemicals to process the resin. However, modern-day hash tends to be pure and should not cause any harm other than a hard and deep cough (especially if you haven’t mastered the art of smoking correctly!). Get your hash from a reputable dispensary like The Stone.
What is Weed?
Weed is dried cannabis leaves ground into a powdery substance. If you can’t be bothered to grow your cannabis, this will usually be the only way to get hold of it. Weed is quite different depending on what country it’s from – there are many types of weed worldwide! Marijuana in America tends to have high levels of THC, whereas Indian or African weed will be much more sedating.
Weed can be quite an acquired taste – it’s best to smoke it in a joint or bong/water pipe with friends, or if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you could eat it! Eating your weed will increase the strength of the high tenfold but sometimes cause some unfortunate side effects such as dry mouth and paranoia. This depends on your state of mind while inhaling, of course! Weed can vary in color from light to dark green, although it’s usually mid-green in appearance. It will have a much lighter taste than hash – sometimes even having the complete opposite effect on you, depending on how strong it is.
Weed will make you feel very relaxed and happy, especially if you smoke it with friends. Cannabis, the medical term for weed, is a substance that brings people together and makes them feel more open to new experiences. Marijuana, slang for Cannabis, can also make you feel starving, so if you’re going on a journey with your mates for some food, make sure you bring an extra-large bag of chips!
Hash or Weed: You Choose
Weed can last up to five hours or more depending on how much you’ve smoked, whereas hash will only last about two hours before the high wears off. Weed is often associated with smoking out of a bong or joint but can also be mixed into food if that tickles your fancy (although it doesn’t taste too excellent!) A lot of people make weed brownies to get stoned without having to smoke
