Many cannabis lovers and enthusiasts are turning to concentrates and other ways of consuming cannabis, especially if they’re seeking a next-level high.
And, when talking about concentrates, it’s impossible not to mention hash or hashish. We'll answer all your questions – or, better yet, let's hash it out...
Hash has been used for both recreational and medicinal purposes – Its history goes back to approximately 900AD.
Hash is a concentrated form of cannabis and contains very high levels of THC, it is produced by pressing the resin glands of the cannabis plant together.
In simple terms, hash is basically just pressed and heated kief. The powdery kief transforms into the brick-like structure that hash is known for, during the production process.
Hash can be consumed in numerous ways. It can be consumed orally, smoked, or vaporized. You can smoke it on its own or you can mix it in with your flower. Chemically extracted hash such as shatter and wax can be vaporized with a dab rig or with a vape/ dab pen that works with concentrates.

Chemically extracted hash can cost anywhere from $20-$80 depending on the quality and THC content.
