The Himalayas and parts of India have long been known for their hemp-growing traditions. For millennia, this plant had been used in these regions both religiously and medicinally - even when there was a strict ban on production in the 1980s. Despite this ban, hemp cultivation continued unabated throughout these regions.
Making charas is an ancient ritual and an invigorating sensory experience. The best charas is created by gently rubbing a live cannabis plant between your fingers, from bottom to top. As the trichomes stick to your hands, creating an aromatic bouquet.
Recently, several varieties of charras have become increasingly popular. These include Malana Cream and Idukki Gold. Both strains are highly sought-after by hash connoisseurs and require a significant amount of time to cultivate.
Charras has a smoother texture compared to other Moroccan hashes due to the unique production process used. This also allows it to contain higher concentrations of CBD without sacrificing potency.
