Afghan Phoenix 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.
Hashish is produced practically everywhere in and around Afghanistan. The best kinds of Hash in Afghanistan originate from the Northern provinces between Hindu Kush and the Russian border (Balkh, Mazar-i-Sharif).
The plants which are used for Hash production are very small and bushy Indicas. In Afghanistan Hashish is pressed by hand after the 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 least contact with air), however, before being shipped, the Hash is pressed tightly in 100g slabs generally. Good qualities of Afghani are signed with the stem of the producing family.
Store your hash in a cool, dark place in an air-tight container. We recommend adding a Boveda humidity pack alongside your hash to keep the flavour and freshness at its peak. Use a grinder if you’d like to break up your hashish into smaller chunks for better smoking or vaporizing.
