Modified on: 18/12/2023


CBD hash is one of the most famous CBD flowers extracts and one of the most purchased items online (and talked about) in recent years.

Are you also intrigued by the subject? Maybe you want to know how CBD hash is made and its effects compared to regular hash?

Then you’re in the right place.

Today we will talk to you about hashish produced from legal hemp, how it is made and how it differs from traditional hashish. At the end of the article, you will know everything (absolutely everything!) About this product and its particularities.

cannabis buds from which hashish is harvested

What is CBD hashish and how is it made?

Hashish, also known as “smoke”, is the resin extracted from marijuana flowers using various methods. Specifically, it is the resin produced by the trichomes of cannabis, collected and then left to mature for a particular time. Basically, its appearance is that of a small block or a small sphere of dark, brown or greenish colour, more or less malleable to the touch depending on the variety.

In the case of traditional hash, this product is harvested from cannabis buds. Therefore, it presents cannabinoids such as THC, CBD and many others.

The hashish CBD, on the other hand, presents CBD (the beneficial and non-psychotropic cannabinoid) exclusively while it is devoid of all other substances.

The origin of this difference lies in the production methods: legal hash is a compound that mimics the appearance of classic hashish. It is produced by processing plant substances, to which pure CBD crystals are then added.

It means that CBD Hash is not produced from hemp, since the traditional procedure is not allowed in France, but it still contains high concentrations of CBD thanks to the skilful addition of cannabidiol crystals.

The traditional hashish, or the resinous compound deriving from cannabis, is produced in the following ways:

  • Dry: In this case, the cannabis plants are harvested, dried and shaken/rubbed on a fine-mesh sieve to collect the dusty resin that falls from the plant.
  • Hand-rubbed hashish: a technique widely practised in countries such as India, Nepal, Afghanistan and Pakistan, it consists in collecting the resin from fresh, uncultivated and therefore still alive cannabis plants. To put it into practice, hash makers stretch out their arms and walk through fields of cannabis plants (whose flowers must be ripe) to collect the sticky resin on their skin. At the end of the collection, the resin is modelled in numerous spheres and left to mature. In the case of charas (Indian hand-picked hashish), the maturation can take several years.
  • Extraction with machinery such as Pollinator®, Ice-o-lator® or Bubbleator®: in this case, the hash is extracted with the use of water and then sieved several times to obtain a high-quality product.

As you can imagine, traditional hashish is a psychoactive substance on a par with cannabis: the resin is rich in cannabinoids, including THC, which affects our psyche and the perception of reality. In contrast, CBD hashish is THC-free and has no psychoactive effect.

scientific research on the benefits of CBD

Effects of legal hashish and illegal hashish: all the differences

CBD hashish is a plant product with CBD crystals, so its effects are exquisitely attributable to cannabidiol

Here, below, what effects we talk about:

  • relaxing (muscle)
  • anti-inflammatory
  • painkiller
  • anticonvulsant
  • antiemetic
  • immunomodulator
  • antioxidant
  • hypotensive
  • antispasmodic

CBD products (such as cannabis CBD flowers, CBD oil and CBD hashish) are in no way considered drugs, but research is heavily focused on the benefits of cannabidiol for humans.

High-THC hash, on the other hand, can trigger the same effects as taking marijuana, including:

  • euphoria
  • relaxation
  • increased creativity and concentration
  • slowing of movements and reflexes
  • memory impairment
  • mood swings
  • paranoia
  • impaired cognitive and motor skills
  • anxiety
  • depressive symptoms
  • apathy
  • sudden and uncontrolled hunger (the so-called “munchies”)
  • and many more. 

Furthermore, hashish is addictive, and its long-term use can give psychological dependence, psychosis/schizophrenia in predisposed subjects, and constant and pathological apathy.
