Hashish

Hashish consists of the tetrahydrocannabinol-rich resinous material from the female flowers of the cannabis plant, which is collected, dried, and then compressed. Pieces are then broken off, placed in pipes, joints or hookahs and smoked. Since THC is fat-soluble, it is also possible to dissolve hashish in butter used for cooking. The Middle East, North Africa, Pakistan, and Afghanistan are the main sources of hashish. The THC content of hashish that reached the United States, where demand is limited, averaged 6 percent in the 1990s.

The marijuana at the CannaTrade 2002 had lowest 8 percent, the highest 28.
