[top]Ways of administration
The methods for administering hash are the same as for other types of cannabis.
Hash is not suited to neat joints, because it is harder to burn than it's herbal counterpart, when smoking in a spliff it is rolled with tobacco
. With the higher grade hash such as bubble hash, smoking using a screen can be tricky as when it bubbles and melts it can fall through the screen, this can be countered by mixing it with tobacco or placing it to the edge of the bowl.
The traditional method of smoking charras hash in India is with a chillum, a conical pipe covered by cloth at one end to prevent burning embers falling through, although chillums are used world wide, they originated from traditional Hindu ceremonies.
Using a knife that's been heated very hot.
With pressed hash one may use a pin, with the pin stuck through a business card. *NOTE
this is a great way to check to purity of the hash. If the burnt hash stays in a ball of ash, it's good stuff. Burnt hash that falls apart, the adulterants burned away and couldn't hold the resin together anymore. Burnt hash that breaks up & falls off the needle is full of impurities/poor quality (probable shouldn't be consumed.) One could either inhale just above the burning chunk. Also, one may place an inverted drinking glass over burning chunk, use a flexible straw, place mouth end of straw under glass, inhale through straw.
People often ask whether hash can be vaporized, the answer is that, yes, it can be vaporized, the psychoactives in hash are the same as herbal cannabis minus the plant material, a vaporizer is an effective way of smoking hash.
[top]Effects of Hashish
The range of highs from hashish are as varied as with herbal cannabis, it depends on the extraction method and on the strain used to make it. Generally effects from modern hash (polm, bubblehash, Isohash etc) are extremely powerful, good bud will range from 15%-20% THC
whereas high grade hash can contain from 30% to 90% THC.
More traditional forms of hashish contain far less THC according to samples of seizures in the UK. Traditional imported hash contains between 5% and 15% THC, although there have been reported samples much stronger than this.
