What does “Hash” mean?

While this term is occasionally used as slang for all types of cannabis, hash (or hashish) specifically refers to THC-heavy resin extracted from cannabis flowers. Hash can be smoked or ingested depending on its consistency, and it has a long history as part of the North Indian and Nepalese cultures. In the late 19th century, it became popular in the Western world as famous writers (including Victor Hugo and Charles Baudelaire) began using it recreationally at a hashish club in Paris. While it never really caught on in the US, hash tends to be the preferred method of consumption for European stoners.

Example usage:

“Solid hash can be pressed into tablet form, so you can get more precise dosages when using it medicinally.”
