What is hash?

Hash is a cannabis extract, made when trichomes, the resinous glands that line the surface of cannabis plants, are removed and processed into a concentrated form. It is usually brown or dark green in color, and comes in a brick or ball.

When people talk about cannabis, weed, or marijuana, they are usually referring to buds, or flower, not hash.

Hash is a solventless extract, as trichome removal is done with physical manipulation and temperature changes, not with the use of solvents or chemicals.

There are a few different types of hash, and processes to make it have been practiced for centuries. With the rapid rise of cannabis legalization in the West, new methods of hashmaking are taking the market by storm.

Where does hash originate from?

The word “hashish” originates from the Arabic language, roughly translating to mean “grass.” It is believed that the popularization of hash originated around 900 CE, although some hashes, such as charas, or the collection of resin from the hands of cannabis farmers, are believed to have existed prior to written documentation. Mahjoun, a sweet treat filled with hashish, is believed to have been the first cannabis edible and to have originated in Morocco.

After Napoleon’s campaign in Egypt in 1798, French soldiers brought hashish home, and it became popular in the Western world in the 19th century. For years, European doctors imported hashish for research, which led to the introduction of various extraction methods that allowed for further refinement into cannabis tinctures and medications.

By the turn of the 20th century, cannabis extractions were a large majority of the Western pharmacopeia. It wasn’t until US prohibition of cannabis in the early 20th century that hash products were outlawed from Western medicine and pushed back into the illicit market.

With the reemergence of cannabis enthusiasm in the 1960s, hash found its way back into the limelight. Countries such as Nepal, Afghanistan, and Morocco saw an increase of hash exportation to Western countries. At the time, the imported hashes were old world varieties, mainly hard-pressed, bricks made from heat and pressure.

It wasn’t until the late 1980s when gland separation was introduced to the West through a machine called the “master sifter.” According to Ed Rosenthal and his book Beyond Buds, this breakthrough machine by John Gallardi used vibration to separate trichome glands from plant material.

During this time, Neil Schumacher and Rob Clarke began experimenting with water extraction methods, the early precursor for what we now call bubble hash, or ice water hash.

The equipment used to popularize ice water extraction was introduced in 1997 by Reinhard C. Delp at the High Times Cannabis Cup. His patents would later be adapted and modified by Mila Jansen with her pollinator isolation bags.

This design would be further improved upon by Canadian hash enthusiast Marcus “Bubbleman” Richardson with his BubbleBags, one of only a handful of companies worldwide who have leased permissions to use methods from the original 1999 patent.
