You may be wondering why you would want to try homegrown over outsourced hash. What is a homegrown hash flower compared to a pressed hash flower? Are they the exact same thing? That’s what I’m here to tell you.
Hash flowers are the plant material that is left after the beauty product has been extracted; it actually consists of trichomes (your THC, CBD, & terpenes) and the leftover product from pressing your hashish. If you’re looking for a powdery consistency, then homegrown is going to provide that for you. If you’re looking for smaller nugget-like pieces of consistency, this is where an outsourced product comes in handy.
Growing your own hashish flowers can be a rewarding experience, but many people new to the art of growing are unaware of the differences between homegrown and manufactured/commercialized hash flowers.
Hash flowers are the starting point for extractions, and the originators of hashish. Hashish or hash is a cannabis product made by collecting the resin that bubbles off of the buds of marijuana plants, and then that resin such as the THC concentrates California brands is pressed into blocks. The physical difference between hash flowers and extracts (hash oils) is that they’re produced in different ways. Hash flowers are made by collecting the resins from female plants, while extracts are infusions of trichomes after they’ve been separated from the plant.
