Introduction to cannabis, weed and hashish
Cannabis is a plant species known worldwide for its psychoactive effects. The two most common products of the cannabis plant are marijuana and hashish. Although both come from the same plant, they differ in composition, production methods and effects. In this article, we discuss the main differences between weed and hash, the effects they have and how to use them.
The difference between weed and hashCannabis, also known as marijuana, is the dried and ground buds of the plant of the female cannabis plant. Hashish, also known as hashish, is a concentrated product made from the resin found on the flower tops. This resin contains the active substances of cannabis, such as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). Hashish typically contains a higher concentration of THC than marijuana/hemp, which means it is usually stronger and has more intense effects.

In general, weed causes a ‘stoned’ effect, which manifests itself in a relaxed and sluggish feeling in the arms and legs. Hashish, on the other hand, with its higher THC concentration, tends to give a ‘high’ feeling, leading to a more upbeat and energetic experience.

- Vaporizing: A vaporizer is a healthier alternative to smoking. Both weed and hash can be vaporized, although some vaporizers are designed specifically for vaping hash.
