Lebanese hash comes in two common varieties, yellow and red. Though some argue that yellow and red are two separate strains, they are made with cannabis harvested at different stages in the growth cycle. Yellow hash is made from plants harvested early when they are high in THC and produces nice cerebral effects. Red hash comes from plants that are a little bit older and are said to contain higher amounts of non-psychoactive CBN, making it milder though still wonderfully potent. Hashish has quite a long history in Lebanon. At one point, the cannabis-gold was even used as a currency. So, it’s safe to say that the Lebanese know their stuff when it comes to making amazing cannabis products. Once the hardy indica hash plants are harvested, dried, and cured, the hash can be made.
Cultivation: The most important Cannabis-Fields are located in the valley of Baalbek. The fields are cultivated on a very large scale, many of them using modern machinery. The production is very industrially oriented, tradition is not very involved in the Hash-Business. Production: The Cannabis-Plants are left on the field until they are nearly dry. By this time they will have acquired a brown-reddish colour (some Chlorophyll is destroyed by the UV-Rays of the Sun). Finally, the plants are brought in a barn to be dried completely. Hashish is produced in the same way as in Morocco, basically, the buds are carefully rubbed over a fine silk-cloth, the resulting powder can be pressed together.
Some Lebanese-Hash is harsher than Afghani, especially when smoked in a Bong. Lebanese is quite an acquired taste. Effect: Compared to most other Hash varieties the High is quite cerebral, however more stony than Morocco.
