There are many similarities between hashish and marijuana. After all, hashish and marijuana come from raw cannabis flowers. Cannabis plants contain hundreds of compounds, including terpenes and trichomes. Those compounds are part of dozens of recreational and medicinal cannabis products. Temple ball hash may be a complete mystery to you. They are part of a long-standing tradition within the cannabis culture, dating back thousands of years. Temple balls are hashish, which consists of all the compounds found in the cannabis plant. The most common practice is rolling the plant matter into a sticky ball that you ingest. Temple balls are part of the dry concentrate category of cannabis products. You’ll find dozens of different options in that category, including wax and concentrates. There are also vape pens and other dry concentrates like kief that fall into this group.Hashish is made from the resin that forms on the tips of the cannabis flower, which contains the majority of the trichomes and terpenes in the plant. Hashish and other cannabis concentrates are more potent than dry cannabis flowers. That’s because these products use concentrated levels of compounds found in cannabis plants. The majority of concentrated cannabis products have about 50% THC concentration. Some hash balls have shown as much as 80% THC concentration. Many wax, vape, and dry concentrates are growing in popularity in Canada for two reasons. The first reason is they are now legal and have been for about a year. The second reason people like them so much is their potency. Some people look at using these as getting more bang for your buck. You don’t need to use as much of a concentrate as you would cannabis flower to reach the same desired effect. Concentrated amounts of cannabis plant compounds help create most cannabis concentrates. Some concentrates isolate compounds or terpenes, while other concentrates use the entire cannabis plant or flower. Those products are in the category of whole-flower concentrates.
