Smoking hash has thousands of years of history, but many people are still uncertain of how to smoke it. What is hash and what effects can you expect after smoking it? Hash is more potent than weed and has the higher content of THC. Hash also comes from trichomes of the cannabis plant, and smoking it may be a bit difficult when compared to smoking weed. Don’t worry though, here is a guide on a few ways how to smoke hash.
1. Roll it into a spliff
What is a spliff? This is usually a combination of weed and tobacco rolled into a paper, just like a joint. In this case, we’re talking about a hybrid with tobacco and hash. Rolling a spliff is one of the easiest ways to smoke hash. You should prepare tobacco, rolling papers, and a grinder. It’s best to have a dry block of hash, as it will crush easier. Use your grinder in order to crush a block of hash, then mix it with tobacco. Now all you need to do is roll your hash and tobacco mix into a spliff. Enjoy!
2. Use a bong or pipe
Using a pipe or bong to smoke hash is different than consuming it out of a rolling paper. Although bongs are one of the most popular gadgets to smoke weed, you can also use them to smoke hash. Many marijuana users will tell you that smoking hash with a pipe or bong is a crime, and you’re only wasting your material. However, every stoner knows that smoking with a pipe or bong, with no tobacco mixed into a chunk of hash, is a lot healthier than smoking a joint. Keep in mind that with the use of pipes, many dangerous smoking substances and toxins are removed, which makes the whole process safer for you and your health.
3. Vaporize it
What does it mean to vaporize hash? It means you should heat it to the desired temperature without burning your stuff. If you have a full melt hash, it’s better to vaporize it than smoke it. There is a wide range of vaping pens designed to vaporize concentrates. Keeping a portable vaporizer is the best way to enjoy your melt hash everywhere you go. Plus, vaporizing is the healthiest way you can consume cannabis. Although vaporizers are not cheap, you’ll save money in a long run, because you’ll get more out of your hash using less of it. Keep in mind though that not every vaporizer will be good for hash because the temperature for its vaporization should be a bit higher than for vaping weed. It’s best to choose a vaporizer with controlled temperature.
4. Go for hot knives
This is one of the simplest ways to smoke hash, and one of the oldest ones. If it’s old, it must be simple right? Moreover, people say it’s not only a simple but also efficient way to smoke hash. You’ll need to prepare two knives, a lighter or electric stove. Be careful not to get burnt while heating the knives. Put your knives on a stove and bring them to the right temperature, then put a chunk of hash in between. Now grab a straw or a pen and inhale the smoke through it!
5. Dab your hash
You’ve probably heard about dabbing cannabis concentrates. The term refers to a concentrate heated to the right temperature, giving an intensive high. Since hashish is one of cannabis concentrates, It’s best to use the full-melt hash and a glass rig. There is nothing difficult about dabbing your hash, do it the same way you dab your wax or shatter and have fun!
6. Old school cup or glass method
For this smoking hash this way, you’ll need a cup or glass, a paper clip and of course some hash. Start by unfolding your paper clip and getting a clear cup or glass. Now take a bit of your hash and put it on the end of the clip. Once your hash is lighted up, you can cover the paperclip with a glass. Wait 30 seconds and carefully slide your glass to the edge of the desk in order to inhale the smoke. Voila!
7. Make a bowl out of aluminum foil (Not Recommended)
This is one of the simplest methods to smoke hash. All you need to do is build a bowl using aluminum foil and place hash inside. Then prepare a straw or a pen tube and heat your hash using a lighter placed under the bowl. Now inhale the vapors from hash using a straw and have fun!
8. Use a plastic bottle (Not Recommended)
For those of you who tried smoking weed with a bottle bong, you should know that we have the same concept here. Take a plastic bottle and make a small hole in the side or bottom of it. The easiest way to make a perfectly sized hole in your bottle is to use a lighted cigarette. Poke it in the bottom of your bottle and then repeat it on the separate side of the bottle. Now remove the top of your bottle and put aluminum foil on it, making a few holes in the foil. Finally, put a chunk of hash on your aluminum foil and heat it using a lighter. Once your hash reaches the right temperature, cover one of the holes with your finger while inhaling the smoke through the other one. Take a good, deep breath as you uncover the second hole. Now you know how to smoke hash with a plastic bottle!
