Swim says he has noticed that scissor hash is a lot stronger than regular polm hash even when made from the same plants crystals. I have only smoked scissor hash twice and both times his tolerance was a litter lower than usual. I have also smoked polm hash with a low tolerance but mainly used it when his tolerance was sky high. Anyway, swims scissor hash provided powerful body rushes with a speedy on set and a very intense and trippy high that lasted a few hours. My pressed polm hash has never had such a profound effect and swim wonders why. The crystals on the scissors were fresh, where as the crystals in the hash had undergone the drying and curing process. This is what lead swim to believe that the polm should be stronger, the moisture had left the crystals so the chemical conversions of cannabergerol to tetrahydrocannabinol will have been completed meaning more psychoactive crystals. This seemed, not to be the case, does anyone have any idea why or has anyone noticed the same thing as swim? All swim can think of is that the crystals were all busted up and had their outer layer broken by the scissors, somehow resulting in stronger hash, how/why? Quicker/instant drying or less wastage when heat is applied? I have heard of hash making techniques where all the crystals are busted up together, the resulting hash is a blackish goo, what is the reason behind this prosess instead of pressing, does it make it stronger?
