Indian Charas Black Hash is the name given to hashish that has been handmade in India, Pakistan, or Nepal. Charas is widely available all across India; however, its production is usually localized to a few places, like the Parvati Valley and Kashmir. These particular environments allow for cannabis plants to be grown freely along the foothills of the Himalayas. The Parvati Valley in particular is famous for a special type of Charas known as Malana Cream, beloved for its high THC content.
There is a distinct difference that sets Charas Black Hash apart from traditional hashish – being that, Charas is formed using cannabis buds that are a few weeks from full maturity. Traditional hashish is made using dead, dried cannabis plant materials. Once the cannabis plants reach the appropriate age of maturity, the plants can then be slowly rolled by hand – until a sticky, resinous ball begins to form. These sticky, hashish resin balls are then pressed into a traditional ‘brick’ before being shipped. Indian Charas Black Hash is very similar to Afghani style hashish – it is easy to work with, harbors a sharp, spicy aroma, and provides users with a potent body buzz that is felt from head to toe.
