HASHISH The Joy of Making & Curing
By LAURENCE CHERNIAK & ALAN DRONKERS
This book is to take the readers on a discovery adventure to help
end any more poor hashish being made or produced, especially from
resin that has a history of good genetics, particularly, in the
temperate climates of our world,
This book also shows how some people do the proper thing if they
have the right genetics but were not yet able to make good hash
out of the resin they have extracted from the plant.
Most people, these days, do not cure their resin but process it
right away into hashish, by using a lot of heat and pressure.
This is comparable to the quality of marijuana that is dried too
quickly. The best Cannabis Cup Marijuana, winning quality, is
achieved by drying under slow and cold conditions (with ventilation)
over a period of at least 3 weeks.
Super quality hashish needs to be cured slowly (with a warm temperature)
over a period of at least 3 months. During this time it should
be kept in an enclosed container. This container should be air
tight. Then it must be opened approximately every three days to
prevent mustiness from starting). This is a verfy safe way to
watch and see the hashish resin merge into a beautifully condensed
harvest. (Dough style material)
The natural humidity in the fresh resin is already enough for
the curing to happen.
1. Meld with the other particles.
For example: This can be done with resin intended to make hashish
that has dried too quickly.
However: With plants that have dried too fast and taste green
they can not be revived in this way.
This pen was subsidized by the Nederland Government which was
given to Alan by a nice girl.One of the most significant thoughts
about curing is the simple reality as first metioned in Volumbe
One, Book One of The Great Books of Hashish was having and knowing
what the just right and exactly right thing was when it came to
have a perfect piece of hashish.
To have such a prize or talisman
meant to have the patience to allow the hashish in most instances
to cure for at least 3 or 4 months.
Very little hashish resin can be extracted from plants and smoked
(very happily) within a month of creating.
Even marijuana buds and vegetative parts like only the calyxes
should be cured for several weeks as well, in lower temperatures.
Curing resin into the state that it would be called a perfect
ball of hashish, on the contrary requires warmer temperatures.
Most of the time when people winning the resin from the dried
plants the humidity in the extracted material is sufficient for
this curing to function properly.
It is mostly recommended that the resin be stored during this
part of the process in an air tight enviroment like a sealable
glass jar, or any sealable container.
When storing the fresh resin it must be approximately 50% dry
and placed in an air tight environment like a sealable glass jar,
or a vacuum sealed container or seal pressed bags but not zip
lock bag (or any other kind of plastic bags) s which do not really
seal to the degree that we are suggesting here and now, especially
the zip-locks that are not for food.
In Nederland the name for hashish resin has become Polm.
2. When Nederlandishe Polm will still easily crumble after having
been in a warm oven for a few months then it still is not ready
to be pressed into anything like the temple balls you see in the
photos in this book.
After three months the resin has changed properties and you can
basically form it into balls by hand. This material already has
the properties of flowery hashish. This material can still be
processed by rubbing and or pressing into darker hashish varieties.
Some genetics however are so oily that they can be rolled into
your hands right away, into dark oily temple balls like those
that you see on the front cover of this book, without the rubbing
This again is related to its genetics because the famous hashish
varieties of the world are what they are, not because of the region
that they come from nor because of climate, soil and growing method.
The quality of all hashish is determined purely by the genetics.
All the genetics of the great hashishs that we have known and
enjoyed are still being grown all around the world.
