Hash refers to any number of concentrated cannabis extract products composed primarily of cannabinoid-rich aromatic resin glands called trichomes that have been selectively separated and compressed from raw plant material into a cohesive, dense final form. Properly prepared high quality hash contains extraordinarily elevated concentrations of psychoactive cannabinoids like THC and CBD in addition to terpenes and other compounds compared to natural unprocessed cannabis flower, thereby offering much greater overall potency by total weight.

The majority of traditional artisanal hashish production worldwide involves carefully hand-collecting freshly harvested trichome resins through targeted mechanical agitation and filtration techniques that strategically separate gland heads using precise water, ice, and/or mesh screen filtration methods before then compressing the sifted resins into stable blocks or balls using manual pressure, heat and compression molding. However, modern mechanical separation methods followed by compression are also coming online to allow for more scalable hash production. Ultimately, the resulting quality and efficacy of a particular hash product depends heavily on the meticulousness of the initial trichome resin head harvesting and separation process.

After creation, potent hashish products can be smoked, vaporized, dabbed, used to cook infused oils and edibles, or added into virtually anything one would otherwise use normal cannabis flower for. Color, texture, pliability, and exact composition of hash can vary dramatically depending on the specific plant cultivar being used and the preparation methodology. Among all cannabis concentrate products available today, fine artisanal hash still rightfully earns exalted praise from discerning connoisseurs for providing the purest and best-preserved expression of the cannabis plant's most desirable flavors.
