Weed, also known as Grass, Pot, Marijuana, Marihuana, Mary Jane, Dope, Ganja, and Reefer, is derived from the same plant as Hash, also known as Hashish, Charas, Stuff, Manali, and Cream.
Cannabis Sativa is the name of the plant.
Definition of Weed and Hash
Weed is basically the dried leaf of the plant as well as the plant’s fruit. It’s dried to appear like regular tea leaves.
Hash is the resin of the leaves that have been rubbed in, scrubbed out, pushed in, poked out, scraped off, mashed up, and treated with different liquidly chemicals. The paste is then dried and sliced into Hashish or Hash cakes.
A Brief History of Weed and Hash
The Cannabis leaf resembles the form of Canada’s flag symbol. But green.
The green mean peace machine acquired popularity during the 1960s hippie movement, despite the fact that it has existed in India and China for Centuries and Millennia.
Weed is said to be “completely harmless” and hash “almost harmless,” in comparison to alcohol and cigarettes.
Cannabis, like the Lotus plant, has multiple uses for all of its parts (the root is eaten and the flower is used for decoration).
It was discovered centuries ago in China and used to manufacture paper, hemp cloth, and bags.
Today, it is mostly used to manufacture weed and hash.
Globally, campaigners for the legalization and medical use of cannabis are gaining traction in their desire for the legalization of the plant, which they believe has remarkable medicinal and therapeutic effects.
In the 1960s, the United States embarked on a banning spree, forcing numerous countries to adopt the criminalization of cannabis.
Although each of the aforementioned substances is categorized as “Soft Drugs,” no overdose-related fatalities have been reported.
People do not seem to cause as many road accidents while under the influence of DUP (pot*) as they do when under the influence of DUI.
Many nations have slap-on-the-wrist fines, while others have the death sentence, indicating a wide spectrum of cannabis prohibition.
Uses of Weed and Hash
It is prohibited in many regions of the world, with the exception of Amsterdam.
Many places around the world have started legalizing it under the guise of medical use through government-operated “shops.”
- Weed is linked to the plant’s non-smokable seeds and barks, which must be methodically removed before it can be used in a bong, a joint, an empty cigarette paper, or a chillum aka Chill. People find Hash to be more addicting and stronger (because of the resin, of course) than mellow Grass. It is said to boost hunger (giving smokers the “munchies”), musical ability, lateral thinking, creative thinking, writing, meditation, and other skills. But this is all pure speculation.
- Hash is smoked similarly to weed, except it is stronger and more powerful, and hence ‘possibly’ more dangerous.
Examples of Weed and Hash
- Caribbean, Mysore, California Sun etc.
- Afghani, Kashmiri, Turkish, Manali etc.
Summary of the Difference Between Weed and Hash
- Weed is a dried-up plant leaf, while hash is mashed up resin from the leaves.
- Hash is more potent than weed.
