What is Red Kashmir Hash?
Red Kashmir is a powerful cannabis extract that results from carefully removing and processing the trichomes – small, resinous glands lining the surface of cannabis plants. Intricate physical manipulation techniques, along with changes in temperature are used to create this concentrate; no solvents or chemicals needed! After completion it generally appears brown or dark green, taking shape as bricks or balls.
How is Red Kashmir Hash made?
Red Kashmir Hashish, one of the oldest cannabis concentrates on record with written texts dating back to the 12th and 13th centuries, is usually smoked or inhaled. This potent product is created by compressing trichome glands from a marijuana plant into a solid form. The appearance and texture of hash depend heavily on its history as well as how it was manufactured. With so much time-honored tradition behind this concentrate, you can be sure that your experience will be truly unforgettable!
What makes Red Kashmir Hash so special?
Red Kashmir Hash is the original cannabis concentrate and has been around for centuries. Its primary compound, trichome glands, house a number of advantageous substances that are found in the plant’s cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids – these molecules work together to have potentially positive medical benefits. Recent research by Dr Ethan B Russo suggests that terpenes can amplify THCs influence as well as some other cannabinoids when combined synergistically within what he calls ‘the entourage effect’ which was published in 2011 in The British Journal of Pharmacology. Not only do terpenes add more depth and complexity to the cannabis experience, but lab studies have demonstrated that flavonoids provide anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits.
An additional advantage of hash is its low-tech production method, which doesn’t demand any lab equipment or solvents. Moreover, it has an extended shelf life – the collected and dried powder used to produce sieved hash can remain potent for years when stored properly. Unfortunately, once pressed into a slab or bar form, the trichome gland structure that provides oxygen and moisture protection loses potency more quickly.
How do I consume or use Red Kashmir Hash?
Enhancing the potency and effects of flower is easily done by adding Red Kashmir hash to a bong, bubbler or pipe. This simple process has become one of the most popular ways for consuming hash.
Red Kashmir Hashish can be consumed on its own in several ways, one of the most popular being “hot knifing,” a technique that involves using two metal knives – typically butter knives – heated over electric range coils until they are super hot or reddened. Then place some hash onto the flat blade part and inhale away!
Pipes make a perfect vessel for smoking hash, but one must be careful to use a screen when igniting the hash as this will prevent pieces of it from entering and being inhaled by accident. Dabbing is the go-to way for partaking in concentrates and extracts, specifically hash. This technique necessitates a specific type of water pipe, known as dab rig.
