Benefits of Hash
Hashish is a potent form of cannabis (marijuana) produced by collecting and compressing trichomes, the most potent material from cannabis plants. Trichomes are the fine growths on cannabis plants that produce a sticky resin.
Marijuana is a green, brown or gray mixture of dried, shredded leaves, stems, seeds and flowers of the hemp plant Cannabis sativa. There are over 200 street names for marijuana including pot, herb, dope, reefer, grass, weed, ganja, Mary Jane, boom, gangster and chronic.
It is usually smoked as a cigarette (called a joint or a nail) or in a pipe or bong. In recent years, marijuana has appeared in blunts, which are cigars that have been emptied of tobacco and refilled with marijuana, sometimes in combination with another drug, such as crack. Some users also mix marijuana into foods or use it to brew tea.
The main active chemical in marijuana is THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol). Marijuana’s effects on the user depend on the strength or potency of the THC it contains. Hashish contains the same active ingredients as marijuana, like THC and other cannabinoids, but with higher concentrations.
Of course, we have a lot of discussion about the medical uses of cannabis and all of its forms. A lot of research has centered around what is the right way to use cannabis to help with a variety of conditions. Hash is a unique preparation of cannabis and provides its own unique medicinal benefits.
Hash is more potent than when the cannabis flower is smoked by itself. Its effects last longer and are more apparent. This means that determining your dosage may be difficult at first. Be willing to adjust, and remember that no one has overdosed on cannabis. Even if you take too much, you are not at risk, and just need to ride it out.
This being said, when using hash alone, less is generally needed to feel the same sense of relief as cannabis use alone. Also, people with anxiety problems may not benefit as much from hash use because of the more intense experience.
Because the hash is more potent and produces a more intense experience than cannabis alone, it may be a better medicine for intense and persistent pain, as well as highly persistent conditions that are not well managed by other medications. Due to its more sedative properties, hash has been shown as an effective medication for chronic and intense pain.
Hash and CBD? They work together!
Recently, CBD has shown to be an incredible help to patients who suffer from seizures and spasms. CBD is found in a hash, just as it is in cannabis. Some patients may find seizure and spasm relief by using a hash, but again finding the right dosage for you is the biggest concern.
When hash is used with cannabis, it generally enhances the effects of the cannabis. Along with this, it adds the sedative effects associated with hash. These used in conjunction can provide relief for an array of conditions while cutting the heavy effects of the hash so as to make the experience more pleasant.
