Why hash?




Could someone explain to me the benifits of hash vs. weed? I've never bought it in amsterdam, but i did smoke a small amount in paris with some friends who lived there. they said the only reason they smoked it was that it was easier to get in europe than weed. the high didn't seem different than weed and it was a pain trying to get the stuff lit. from what i understand, in the dam it's more expensive, so what am i missing? serious question, i'd be willing to give it another try on my next trip.
I like em both. Benefits of hash over weed is, it is easier to transport. Some people say that it gets you higher, but that's them and not me. For the BAM....stone.......I like weed.
For the mellow walkaround kind of high, I like hash. Both taste great if you get the kind strains.
Go try it for yourself and see. I like to roll it with tobacco. No pipes to mess around with.

Have fun experimenting. Half the fun!

Why hash? There's the great taste, the wonderful exotic names, the beautiful architecture of the gear, the sense of awe at how this gear has travelled halfway across the globe, and the sheer variety of highs which still allow you to function, but be a bit funny. That's why hash.
Taste. lotsa flavour.

Different kinda buzz. best in my opinion when smoked pure.(taste)
Sharkhunter, welcome to the board!

For years I only smoked weed in the Dam.
When I did try hash, I didn't know what to buy
or how to smoke it and was disappointed with
what I sampled.

Then I made some friends in Christiania, Denmark
and learned to really appreciate hash. Everyone
there smokes hash exclusively, mainly fine light
marocs mixed with toasted tobac, rolled up in joints.

After a few weeks of toasting, rolling, and smoking
with my friends there, I switched over to smoking hash
just like them:) I rarely smoke weed anymore.

Next time you're in the Dam, seek out someone with
hash experience. They're not hard to find. Watch for
people rolling joints with hash and strike up a
conversation. If you're nice, they'll be happy to share
what they've rolled with you. Ask dealers to help you, too.
Seek out shops known for their hash, such as de Dampkring
and Tweede Kamer, to name just two.

I have found that I can smoke light marocs all day long,
from before breakfast until I'm back in bed, and still
function quite well:) Does that mean they're weak?
No, just that they don't sedate me as some weeds
tend to do. Do you have to mix them with tobacco?
Certainly not. You can mix them with weed, also.
Or if you're not rolling, you can smoke them straight
with a pipe. I just find they just burn the best when
mixed with tobacco.
I think its a personal choice if you lived in the UK and smoked some of our soap bar you would definetly only smoke weed but in AMS the hash is top quality personally I like to mix a pure weed joint with a little bit of hash and enjoy both Dank u wel...Boner...
I find that hash doesn't expand as much in my lungs so it's easier to schmoke. Besides having a superior bouquet, there are more ways to enjoy hash. The black hashs are malleable.when warm, so they can be twisted into robes and burned like incense. Doing so, one can capture the wafting smoke directly or capture it in an inverted glass tumber. Draw the smoke from the bottom.

Hash is also easily digestible. A body high can be quite stupifying. I suppose someone in real need of some serious fibre could make the same argument about weed.

Hash can have a higher THC concentration than the plant it was produced from. Hash is compressed (typically) majihuana trichromes, the THC laden part of the plant. Admitted, hash can be cut; caveat emptor.
I myself have not even seen hash in the last 15 years so I'm looking forward to smoking some again<
Boner, a question: I've seen other posters mention "soap bar hash". What is it and why is it so undesired? Just wondering, thanks.
its total shite hash. blech.
thanks to everyone for the good info. i actually seek out lighter weed varieties that i can function on and not get paranoid, so i'll give it another go in the dam.
forgot to log in :)
beforewarned, there's lighter colored and lighter effect. The nederhashs are good example of light colored hash that can seriously kick one's ass. The darker colored hashes imho, while more aromatic, are a somewhat less potent then the light hashes
From personal experience the 'Soapbar' is the dregs of the dregs I've read and heard that some undesireables that produce the hash have no problem putting rubber, leaves, hair, glue and anything else they can put in they will - Amsterdam hash fluffs up when you heat it a little and crumble it between your fingers the soapbar crumbles in little lumps ie full of shit...Boner...
My God! People actually smoke this stuff?
What am I saying? I smoke tobacco! Sheesh.....the nerve of some people! Keep on smoking that soapbar!

Yes I must admit that I DID smoke that shit, thank god i dont it anymore 1 thing I forgot to mention, I believe they also put additives in it as well as when I quit smoking the crap it took me nearly 3 weeks to stop crawling the walls and after smoking AMS weed/hash for nearly 3 weeks (oops did I really forget to leave all that smoke in AMS when I was ready to leave...) I felt fine the next day and every day after...Boner...

(love the new avatars Seoul & Stems..)
You know what?
I'd really like to sample some soapbar,
just to see how bad it is!
Maybe someone from the UK can bring a bit
with them this month???


Hey Viking - Take it from me you really don't want to try any of our wonderful soapbar you might as well smoke banana skins instead...

Not so long back I went to see Howard Marks's live stand up show (if anyone doen't know Howard Marks was a marijuana smuggler aka Mr Nice!) someone in the audience shouted out if he had any good contacts he'd share he said 2 things firstly he said something like F**k off support your own dealer and when the same person complained about the quality of the crap we get he said if we stopped buying it things might change well I for one have stopped buying it save my money and go to AMS as often as possible...Boner...
Dear Bohannon!
India and Nepal are two different countries, so Nepal Temple Balls is not of indian origion.

For indian hash, try: Melana, Manali, Charras, Jammu, Madras, as well as several varieties of Indian Cream.

Anyway, the Nepal Temple Ball is truley a great hash. I will for sure try hash from all over the Globe (Asia, Marocco, Holland, Middle East etc) in just a few weeks when I set my feet on dutch soil again. Can't wait...

Peace

Indian Hasji?? Is that the "Nepalese Temple Ball" or are there others?
Pax

I know that Nepal isn't India but I have never heard of those hasjis. Man do I ever have a lot of homework to do on my next trip, Soo much hasji, so little time! Thanks
Pax
Hahahaha....that Viking!
Man, you'd try anything once, eh? Funny dude!
From all the comments that the peeps have put up here, I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. Even if I wasn't stoned! Imagine all that CRAP, Viking!
Let's stick to the light morocc's, ice, and the Poison!

I'm sure glad I don't have to put up with the ol soap-bar anymore. Way too much of that stuff in England, but if it's the only smoke available, people will buy it......

As for hash in Holland, well that's a whole different ball game altogether.....so much to choose from, I do prefer myself the imported ones - Nepalese, Moroccan, Indian usually do the job for me...I'm not a big fan of the ice/jelly/water hash though.......it might get you stoned, but somewhere I feel hugely ripped off by it......that's already been done on another thread.....let's not go there again people!

a pic of the new Andalusia #1 at the Andalusia lounge.
I'm sure I'm way off base, but that looks just like a piece of gingerbread that's been torn open... Mmmmm

hehe, actually I have smoked banana skins! Talk about being
desperate!

And I'd still try soapbar if someone had any, just once, of course:)

Man, it looks like Andalucia has really improved their hash!
I was disappointed in their offerings in the past, but it's still
a cool shop to chill at.

OK, I must start limiting my posts as I want to make my
250th while in Amsterdam so I can attain the exalted title
of Super Power Poster while actually in paradise!!!!!
