Gold Seal Hash is a great starting point for newbies as it’s a great value hash and is of good quality. It’s also great for long-time hash enthusiasts as the nostalgia takes them back to the 70’s and 80’s when the only thing to smoke was hash and flower.
The cannabis plants used for hash production are small, bushy indicas. In Afghanistan, hashish is pressed by hand after the addition of a small amount of tea or water. The hashish is worked on until it becomes highly elastic and emits a strong aroma. It is then rolled into balls (this shape allows the least contact with air). Before being shipped, the hash is pressed into 100g slabs. Good qualities of Afghan are signed with the stem of the producing family.
