Hashish oil

Hashish oil is an extremely potent extract of the active chemical in marijuana (archaic: marihuana), or the cannabis plant, delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol. The extraction is performed by infusing the plant material in alcohol or highly volatile substances like butane fuel. Hashish oil is the most potent "street" (non-prescription) form of marijuana, and also the cleanest. The oil is vaporized by heating it from underneath using a spoon and a flame or similar implements and the fumes are inhaled through a tube. Various similar methods are also used. Because the process of making hashish oil removes all vegetable matter, all cancer-causing carcinogens are left out of the smoke, making the smoke literally harmless to the body. The effects of hashish oil are the strongest of all forms of marijuana, coming on faster and requiring less of the drug to get high than other forms of use.
