It is also legal to consume cannabis during the annual observance of Mahashivratri, a Hindu festival celebrating Shiva. Tourists visiting the country are able to find and purchase ganja, or cannabis flower, and Nepalese Hashish quite easily, especially in popular tourist areas such as Kathmandu, the capital and the nation’s largest city. The Himalayan mountain range runs through the country of Nepal.
Based on altitude, the climate can vary quite a bit. Nepal has more than four seasons; there is a monsoon season that occurs after summer and before autumn. Nepal receives the greatest amount of rainfall during the months of June, July, August, and September; Morocco, Lebanon, and Afghanistan receive the least amount of rain during that time. The abundant rainfall means Nepalese cannabis farmers don’t have to prepare for dry spells or implement irrigation solutions. In lower-altitude areas, Nepal has a mild climate, with its coldest temperatures reaching an average of 38.12 degrees Fahrenheit, or 3.4 degrees Celsius, in January, and its hottest temperatures reaching an average of 65.48 degrees Fahrenheit, or 18.6 degrees Celsius, in July. The monsoon season and rainfall rates makes Nepal a poor location for sieved Hashish. Unlike desert and Mediterranean climates, in Nepal the humidity and moisture in the air makes it hard to dry and separate resin powder.
Producing hand-rubbed Charas is easier in Nepal’s climate, as the trichomes and resin bind to hands better when the air is slightly humid. With abundant rainfalls, Nepal typically has two cannabis harvests. The first harvest occurs in June and July; the second harvest occurs in October, November, and December. The first harvest yields plants that grow to about 4 to 5 feet, or about 1.2 to 1.5 meters, whereas the plants from the second harvest enjoy the summer and monsoon seasons and can grow taller than 20 feet, or more than 6 meters. The majority of Hashish produced in Nepal involves hand-rubbing resin from live, green cannabis plants, as opposed to producing a brick or slab of Hashish by pressing sieved resin power that’s been collected from dried and cured cannabis. Like sieved Hashish, Charas is made from the trichomes of the cannabis plant, but the trichomes are collected by hand from fresh cannabis plants. Using both hands, a person will gently rub a fresh cannabis stalk between their palms. Nepal is said to be the source for some the world’s most potent hand-rubbed Charas — think deep couch-lock. The continuous rubbing motion of the resin between the palms creates a rounded, shiny, and smooth appearance. The humidity of Nepal’s climate naturally yields a texture that’s sticky, soft, and moist — much like a fudge brownie. If it’s been pressed, it’s typically pressed by hand rather than using a machine or bat-pressing. Nepalese Charas is made using fresh, live cannabis plants. A Charas maker locates a mature stalk full of frosty flower buds and plucks larger fan leaves from the stalk. Then, starting at the base of a stalk, vigorously rubs the stalk buds between the palms using both hands. The sticky trichomes naturally stick to the skin and hands, forming a thin resinous coating. The process is repeated, with the resin building thicker and thicker layers. Hand-rubbing takes longer and is less efficient than sieving; even with a full, mature cannabis stalk, about 30 minutes of rubbing yields a Charas ball about one-third of an inch (0.33”), or about 0.85 centimeters, in diameter. To prevent spoilage, Charas is tightly wrapped and sealed in plastic and stored in cool, dry places to retain as much of the aromas, flavors, and effects of the live plant as possible. Many cannabis connoisseurs who have eaten raw hash report experiencing an intense, psychotropic high that lasts for hours. The legend of Sheik Haidar seems to back up these reports, describing an experience that author Michael Aldrich proposes would most likely have come from eating hash or resin rather than plant material. For a less intense, more manageable experience, smoking hash is recommended over ingestion. Hash is made primarily made of compressed resin taken from a collection of a cannabis plant’s resin glands or trichomes. All forms of cannabis, with the exception of industrial hemp , remains federally illegal. However, hash is largely available in states with recreational legalization in place. Consult your state laws and regulations to see if hash is a legal form of cannabis in your area. What’s the Difference Between Bubble Hash and Hash? Both traditional and bubble hash are concentrations of the plant’s resin glands.
The difference between the two is in the way they are made as well as their typical consistency. Hash is made by pressing the resin glands into a slab or brick, while bubble hash is made by separating resin glands from the plant using ice water and sieving them through a series of mesh screens.
