    How do you actually smoke hash?

    You may have wondered: how do you actually smoke hash? Hash is a more concentrated form of cannabis. It produces the same effects, but its use is different. There are different ways to smoke hash. That's why in this blog we explain everything you need to know about hash.


    What is hash?

    Both hash and weed come from the cannabis plant. They therefore contain virtually the same active substances, which are obtained from the resin from the flower tops and leaves of the plant. Use weed, then you only smoke the buds and small leaves. Hashish collects the resin from the buds, which is rich in psychoactive substances (THC). Hash contains higher concentrations of this than weed.


    To obtain hash, the resin from the buds is used, and this sticky powder is compressed into a block, slice or jelly. Whatever form it takes, hash has mind-expanding properties, just like weed. This is why it has been a popular remedy in different cultures for centuries. It is used for both recreational and medicinal purposes. If you want to use hash for pain or stress, you can also opt for the non-psychoactive CBD hash.


    As far as the effects are concerned, they are comparable to when you smoke weed. Of course, the quality of the hash, how much you use and how your own body reacts also largely determine the effects. The most common effects are:


    • Change of perception of time and space
    • Euphoria
    • Stronger appetite
    • Less inhibitions
    • Relaxation
    • Sharpening of the senses
    • Higher heart rate and blood pressure
    • Dry mouth and eyes
    • Changed mood


    At higher doses, you may experience anxiety and paranoia. The effects of hashish generally last 2 to 4 hours. Keep in mind that if you eat hash (in an edible for example) the effects can last up to 6 hours.

    How to smoke hash: 3 different ways

    If you are interested in using hash, it is useful to know how you can do this. There are 3 different methods, each with their own advantages and disadvantages.


    In a bong or water pipe

    If you're wondering how to smoke hash, one of the options is a bong or water pipe. This is a popular method. You put the hash in the bowl and then smoke it through the tube. The bong consists of a bowl, tube and a water reservoir. The advantage of using a hookah is that the smoke passes through the water. This also makes it softer and cooler, which gives a pleasant smoking experience and some of the harmful substances are filtered through the water.


    Compared to a joint, smoking a bong provides a more intense experience. There are also some disadvantages to using a bong. You will have to be careful with the dosage, because determining the right amount of hash can be difficult. Finally, you should also clean the bong every now and then.


    Joint smoking

    The second way to smoke hash is by rolling a joint. You mix the crumbled hash with tobacco and form a cigarette using a rolling paper. The benefits are easy to see: it's simple, quick and requires no equipment. It is therefore one of the most used methods. It is relaxing, although it can also be quite an intense experience. One of the disadvantages is that there is always a strong odor, which can cause nuisance to others. The taste is stronger than when you use a water pipe.


    Hash in a vaporizer

    You can heat herbs and (in some cases) hash in a vaporizer. Please note that not all vaporizers can handle hash. If yours can do that, the hash is heated to a temperature at which the active substances evaporate, but do not burn. This means that fewer harmful substances are released, and the smoke is softer. That is of course a nice advantage. A disadvantage is that the experience is not as powerful compared to smoking a joint or using a bong.


    Starting with hash, pay attention to this!

    If you are going to use hash for the first time, keep an eye on the following points. Now that you know how to smoke hash, you don't know yet how you are going to react. Therefore, start with a low dose. Hash can have very strong effects, but if you take too high a dose, you will probably not have a pleasant experience. Be careful with this.


    Just like with cannabis, it is important to pay attention to the set and setting, which means your own mood and the environment. Only use hash when you are feeling good and relaxed. And make sure you are in a familiar environment. Place some soft pillows and blankets on the couch and put on some music that inspires you. Do not mix hashish with other drugs or alcohol.


    If you have read how to smoke hash, you can get started with the above tips. Maybe you want to purchase a bong or water pipe now? Bongs are available in different types, sizes and materials. So you have a lot of choice!
