Afghan hash (Hashish) is produced practically everywhere in and around Afghanistan – it is a tradition. The best kinds of Hash originate from the Northern provinces between the Hindu Kush and the Russian border. The plants which are used for Hash production are very small and bushy Indicas – it’ll typically be a short and stubby Kush.
Afghanistan Hashish is pressed by hand under addition of a small quantity of tea or water. You should see how passionate the producers are. No shortcuts and no laziness. Decades of tradition are poured into making this. The Hashish is worked on until it becomes highly elastic and has a strong aromatic smell. Black on the outside, dark greenish or brown inside – it kind of looks like a delicious chocolate bar. The smell is incredibly spicy but also very sweet.
The effects are almost narcotic and produces a very physical and stony high. It’s absolutely incredible to add some to a joint or smoke a bit in the pipe. It’s easy to underestimate the potency of Afghani since the high takes about 5 minutes to reach its full potential, so again, use caution when smoking and don’t smoke too much!
