In most cases, weed is cheaper and less strong than hash. Weed contains a lot of leaves from the cannabis plant. Hash is mainly resin processed from the flower tops, this part contains a higher concentration of THC. Hash contains a lot less leaves, which means it has a higher concentration of the active ingredient THC.
When the upper leaves and flower tips are dried and crumbled, weed is created. This can be recognized by the gray-green to green-brown color and the strong odor that emanates from it.
Hash is therefore made from the resin that can be found on the plant. The resin is created by cooling the flower tops first. It is then important to shake the flower tops by means of a sieve. The resin is then kneaded together to form a block of hash.
Pople often claim that hash makes you high and that weed gives you more of a stoned feeling. It mainly depends on the amount of THC and CBD which effect cannabis has.
The exact effects of weed and hash also differ greatly from person to person. It also depends on one’s expectations, state of mind at the time of use and own experience play an important role.
