Freebase

  1. Hashish

    Hashish, often known as "hash", is a cannabis product composed of compressed or purified preparations of stalked resin glands, called trichomes, collected from the unfertilized buds of the female cannabis plant. It contains the same active ingredients—such as THC and other cannabinoids—but in higher concentrations than unsifted buds or leaves. Hashish may be solid or resinous depending on the preparation; pressed hashish is usually solid, whereas water-purified hashish—often called "bubble melt hash"—is often a paste-like substance with varying hardness and pliability, its color most commonly light to dark brown but varying toward green, yellow, black or red. It is consumed by being heated in a pipe, hookah, bong, bubbler, vaporizer, hot knife, smoked in joints, mixed with cannabis buds or tobacco, or cooked in foods. Hashish use as a medicine and recreational drug dates back to at least the 3rd millennium BC.

The Nuttall Encyclopedia

  1. Hashish

    an intoxicant made from Indian hemp, having different effects on different individuals according to the dose and to the constitution of the individual.
