How To Smoke Hash – A Quick Guide

If you’re looking to smoke or vape some hash, there are plenty of ways to do it. In this guide, we’ll go over the most popular methods and some that are less common but still worth knowing about and trying.

What is Hash? 

Cannabis is more than just being high; it’s about being happy, creating new experiences, having fun and more often than not, cannabis can help you relax. And if you’re stuck in the same old flower routine, then maybe it’s time to try something different—like hash! Hash comes in various forms—from flowers to oils to bricks (yes, we said bricks!)—and can be smoked, vaped, or even eaten.

Hashish is a cannabis product that is produced by pressing together the resin glands (trichomes) of a plant. Hash is a type of cannabis made from the plant’s resin, which is collected by rubbing it between the hands or through a sieve. It can be smoked or vaped, but there are also other ways to use hash.

Hash is a cannabis extract made by separating the trichomes from the plant. These trichomes are the tiny glands on the cannabis plant that you can’t see, but they are what packs the cannabis plant full of punch. Once these trichomes have been ‘harvested’ off the plant’s surface, they are processed into the concentrate we all know (and mostly love) as hashish. It looks like brown or dark greens in colour and typically comes in a brick or ball shape. And one of the best parts about hash? It is made without using solvents! Hash is solventless because it is created using a clever combination of physicality and temperature adjustments- and doesn’t need solvent for extraction, just some good old-fashioned pressing, and heating.

There are varying types of hash, and people have been processing cannabis to make hash since ancient times.

Brief Hash History Lesson

The word “hashish” comes from Arabic, translating to “grass” in English. There are a couple of theories about hash’s origins, but the most popular is that it originated In the year 900AD. However- there are written records of charas, the name given to the resin that gathered on cannabis farmers’ hands. Whether the farmers knew how valuable this resin was remains up for debate.

How to Smoke Hash in a Joint

You can smoke hash on its own, or you can mix it with tobacco and roll it into a cigarette. Alternatively, you can roll it with flower and roll yourself a hash joint; it’s what is sometimes called a ‘spiced joint.’ 

To roll a really good hash joint, you’ll want to use some of your favourite buds as a cushion for the hash. People often forget that rolling a hash joint is all about layering your bud and your hash in proper proportions.

Rolling a joint with hash

Here’s how to do it:

  • Rolling a hash joint is very much the same as rolling a regular joint, simply lay out your rolling paper horizontally and get ready for the layering.
  • Next up, you need to start layering the hash and ground-up herb. The herb comes first, and then sprinkle some crumbles taken from the hash block or ball on the top.
  • Lastly, you should roll the bud and the hash into a tight joint. Some people prefer to roll with the filter, and others prefer to add in the filter once it is rolled. If you are the latter, just ensure you leave enough room for the filter before you seal the deal. 

How to Smoke Hash in a Pipe

Smoking hash in a pipe is probably the easiest way to get started with the practice, mainly because you can do it with minimal supplies. Any glass pipe will do, but a wide-mouthed one is preferred. 

You can add some of your favourite buds to the pipe, can smoke hash on its own, or you can use bubble hash. If you’re using bubble hash, you’ll need a metal screen.

Here’s how to do it: 

  • Before you light up, break down your stash into smaller pieces. As you know, hash is a collection of trichomes and cannabinoids liberated from the cannabis plant so that it will burn a lot longer. If you place all of your stash in your bowl, you’ll find yourself burning through more than necessary.
  •  The next step is to toast your hash like a bagel (but don’t burn it – we want to soften it up, not burn it). Wait for it to soften up, and the texture changes from the hard solid into something easier to break into small crumbles.
  •  Now that you’ve turned your solid hash into crumble-cake, you can crumble it into your pipe. Or, if you prefer, you can use it to garnish your bowl of ground-up bud.

How to Vape hash

We love buds and concentrates, but you have to turn up the heat when vaping. If you’re a vaper, you’ll find that hash is really easy to vape. It only differs in temperature—you just have to heat your vaporizer to 400°F.

Hash in a Vape

Here’s how to do it:

Vaporizing concentrates is like piecing together a puzzle; you just need to find the piece that fits! So if you have a vaporizer that’s designed to accommodate concentrates—and there are many out there—adding the substance is easy. All you have to do is load the chamber and then enjoy!

Using a vape that’s not built for concentrates? You just have to do some grinding and mixing. Throw some ground bud in your grinder and let it mingle with some of the hash. Toss the mixture in your vape, take a hit, and enjoy the punchline.

Using A Bong To Smoke Hash

While it may not seem so at first glance, the dynamics of a pipe and the bong are pretty similar! But here are some extra tips to help you get the most enjoyment out of smoking hash from your favourite bong: 

  • Like a lazy Sunday morning, your hash isn’t going to wake up on its own, so you’ll need to prime it. But be careful not to burn your precious hash; move your lighter back and forth so you don’t concentrate the flame on one area. This helps you gently warm the hash without toasting it too much.
  • Now that your hash has woken up and softened up, you can sprinkle it into the bong’s bowl. Choose the amount of hash you want to add, but a typical bowl will fit just less than half a gram. 
  • Pour some water, until it reaches about halfway, into the bong. 

Pro Tip: if you want a smoother smoke, try throwing a couple of ice cubes in with the water. It will help to cool down any hot and harsh smoke. 

  • This next step is the easiest, but it can be the most apprehensive stage for bong-newbies. But all you have to do is light up the bowl and slowly inhale as you feel your lungs filling up with the sweet smoke of hash. On the exhale, let the smoke out in a steady stream.

Can You Dab Hash?

We get it. When you start looking at dab rigs and water pipes, it can be confusing at first. You see, dab rigs and bongs are actually very similar, but the main difference is that a dab rig is designed with a nail, and instead of a hole at the bottom (like a typical bong), a dab rig has the hole on the side of the rig which leads into the pipe. The nail needs to be heated to a specific temperature (450 F). As you can imagine, this would be difficult with a regular lighter, so a handheld torch is typically used.
