Black Putty Hash
Black Putty Hash. Hash, or hashish, is the product of collecting the resin stalks, trichomes, or THC, from cannabis plants. This classic form is commonly collected by growers when they handle the mature plants. The resinous trichomes of the plant rub off on their hands, thus creating the common terminology for it: rub. In some areas it’s referred to as finger or scissor hash. When the plants are trimmed after curing, they also trickle down trichomes. Growers tend to trim over a silk screen, and the sieved product is what’s commonly referred to as kief. It’s also collected in grinders with screens inside, though without a filter through a proper silk screen, it’s not truly a hash. Another common collection technique utilizes several silk screen bags (bubble bags) and ice water to separate the trichomes from the cannabis plant matter and filter them through the screens. This yields a solventless unpressed hash, bubble hash, full melt, or ice wax. Black Putty Hash is an extracted product composed of compressed or purified preparations of stalked resin glands, called trichomes, from the cannabis plant,
First things first, let’s compare these two in terms of origins. Marijuana is particularly popular in Europe and North America, while hashish is praised by the people of Africa and the Middle East. In Arabic, hashish stands for “grass” and despite strict bans on the substance, it is widely accessible across Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle Eastern regions.
When comparing the hash to marijuana, we should also take a peek at differences in the cultivation of both. Marijuana typically grows quickly, which is the reason why it’s called “weed.” After harvesting a plant, its stems, flowers, and buds are dried – the moment decarboxylation takes place – and turned into a psychoactive pot. How is hash made? Well, in short, it requires separating trichomes and compressing them into a block with the right temperature, which takes more time to achieve the final product.
