Temple Ball Hash
Our newest addition to our hash line up! Are you a hash lover who is looking for a unique experience? Temple Balls are objects of hash-making lore, originating long before other modern methods. The first temple balls were made from hand-collected cannabis trichomes (known as charas), or from dry sift made by separating trichomes from the plant using screens. Decades later, and the method has been perfected. Simply put, Temple Balls are a collection of trichome heads, isolated from the plant using the ice water extraction method, gathered together and hand-rolled into a spherical mass. Temple ball hash is the original solventless cannabis concentrate. Temple Balls represent a blending of the old and the new, with modern solventless techniques like ice water extraction meeting age-old knowledge and practices for optimizing hash with only some heat and human hands.
The soft and luscious interior of temple ball hash is truly a thing of beauty, and the glistening surface seems mystical. Widely regarded for its sticky, resin like color and texture, its sweet, tangy taste, and its narcotic, dream-inducing high, this hashish has become a beauty to marvel at. A majestic marble, a globe of pure goodness, a Temple Ball is calling your name. Will you answer?
What is hash?
Hash, more formally known as hashish, is a concentrate derived from trichomes, the ripe, resinous gland heads that line the surface of cannabis plants. Hash is made by removing the trichome glands from a cannabis plant and repeatedly compressing them to form a hardened, solid piece. It’s one of the oldest types of cannabis concentrates, with historical evidence suggesting that hash was used as far back as the 12th and 13th centuries.
How to use hash
The most common way to use hashish is to smoke it, either by itself or combined with weed. It can also be orally consumed, although people who eat raw hash often report experiencing an extremely intense, psychotropic high that lasts for hours. For a less intense, more manageable experience, smoking hash is recommended over direct ingestion. Edibles provide much tastier options and are easier to dose than eating hash.
When smoked, hash produces a thicker smoke than flower alone. Hash made with aged resins are usually preferred over hash made with fresh resins, as it will make the user cough less. This is because older resins have had more time to dry, allowing for moisture content and terpenes to evaporate from the trichome glands.
One of the simplest ways of using hash is to add it to a bowl of flower in a bong, bubbler, or pipe, in order to boost the potency and effects.
Alternatively, hash can be added to a joint and smoked. If the hash is dry, crush or cut it up, then sprinkle it in the flower before rolling it. Hash that is soft and malleable can be formed into a thin line, then placed on top of the flower. Slowly roll the joint and secure the edges. The rolled hash should now be secured in the center of your joint and surrounded by a layer of flower.
Some people also smoke hash on its own by using two red hot knives to scorch the hash, then using a funnel to inhale the smoke. Dabbing and using a pipe are also popular ways to smoke hash.
How to restore hash
Dry hash – Dry hash is perfectly fine to smoke and some prefer their hash dry as it creates less smoke when it burns. However, if you prefer your hash to be moist, you can try adding a fresh slice of bread to your sealed bag of hash and leaving it overnight. Orange peel also works too, but there is a chance that your hash will become moldy. A piece of lightly moistened paper towel instead of the bread may also work.
Hard hash – Hash is often hard when it is straight out of the packaging but will easily become malleable and soft when a bit of heat is added. It can be rolled around using your fingers or gently heated with a lighter. A few seconds in the microwave should also work, but please take caution to not burn it.
