Charas Hash – Charas Hash near me
Charas hash is often considered the oldest form of hashish. While there are several theories from different researchers and authors, it is commonly accepted that this type of hand-rubbed hash is, indeed, much older than any other form of collecting resin glands from the cannabis plant such as dry sieving, which is likely to be the second one.
We do have some texts from Ibn Wassyah about hash and its effects on the human body from the Xth century in Persia, but have no accurate idea about its exact place of origin or first method used to produce it.
However, and if we try to approach this subject from a logical point of view, it seems obvious that charas is likely to be the first method ever used to collect cannabis resin. For the moment, let’s stick to proven facts that we know about ancient cannabis cultivation: we know cannabis has been grown under controlled conditions for millennia. We also know that, while far away from modern hybrids, these ancient cannabis plants produced trichomes.
But when did they realize that that substance was actually hash and could be produced by just hand-rubbing fresh buds? When did they realize about the properties and effects of this substance? Did all that happen in the same area? We just don’t know.
As we’ll discuss in further articles, dry sieved hash seems to be, in terms of history, a lot younger than hand-rubbed resin or, as we normally call it today, charas or chars. Indeed, it was not until global demand for hash raised (14th-15th century) that dry sieved resin became the most popular form of hash, usually coming from areas with dry climates.
