Hash is by far one of the most iconic cannabis products in existence, with its use and production spanning way back into human history. Hash is essentially an old-school cannabis concentrate that can be made in numerous ways. More viscous hash, or temple ball hash, can be made by simply rubbing cannabis flowers between the bare hands. Kief, which is a more powdery form, can be collected from dried flowers during the grinding process and pressed into large blocks. Regardless of how it is made, hash almost always offers a clear, clean, and euphoric high.

Here are 5 strains bursting with resin that you should consider when planning your next batch of high-quality hashish.

1. Royal Gorilla

Royal Gorilla is an outrageously potent cannabis variety, making her an ideal strain of choice when crafting some intense hash. Royal Gorilla features a perfect balance of 50% sativa genetics and 50% indica genetics. She is the lovechild of parent strains Sour Dubb, Chem Sis, and Chocolate Diesel. This breeding project created a strain with THC levels rarely seen before, reaching immense levels of 27%. The flowers of Royal Gorilla are dripping with psychoactive resin, making them perfect for hand-rolling some high-grade and mind-blowing hash. The high is both relaxing and stimulating as the cannabinoids and terpenes within the strain work to relax the body while igniting the mind. To top it all off, Royal Gorilla offers earthy, pungent, and piney scents and tastes.

Royal Gorilla performs well in both indoor and outdoor environments. Indoors, this strain will provide yields of between 500–550g/m² and grow to heights of up to 160cm. Outdoor plants will grow to slightly taller heights of 170cm and produce harvests of up to 600g/plant. She features a flowering time of 8–9 weeks, with outdoor plants usually ready for harvest during the middle of October.

2. OG Kush

OG Kush is another excellent strain to select when hash-making. She offers potent highs, rich flavours, and good yields. OG Kush is an indica-dominant lady with a genetic makeup consisting of 75% indica genetics and 25% sativa genetics. This ratio results in a high that primarily stones and relaxes the body. She makes an excellent smoke at the end of a long and stressful day to calm down the nervous system and induce restorative sleep. The flowers of OG Kush contain 19% THC, resulting in satisfying highs that aren’t overly intense. This strain was created via the crossbreeding of parent strains Chemdawg, Lemon Thai, and Pakistani Kush. The terpene profile within her resin results in flavours and aromas of citrus, pine, and fruit. As well as being quite calming, hash made from this strain is also delicious to boot.

OG Kush thrives both indoors and outdoors, favouring a mild climate. Indoor plants are capable of producing yields between 425–475g/m² and grow to heights of between 90–160cm. Outdoor plants, on the other hand, pump out yields of up to 550g/plant and soar to taller heights of up to 220cm. OG Kush has a flowering time of 7–9 weeks, with outdoor plants ready to harvest during the month of October.

3. Ice

ICE is a highly valued strain among hash-makers due to her massive trichome production. In fact, her very name is derived from this trait, standing for Indica Crystal Extreme. ICE was created as part of a breeding project involving legendary parent strains Afghan, Northern Light, and Skunk. The result is a powerful indica-dominant strain featuring 90% indica genetics and only 10% sativa genetics. This indica beast produces compact and dense flowers that glimmer due to the amount of trichomes present. Large quantities of hash can be made by either rubbing her flowers over a sieve, or collecting trichomes by grinding dry flowers. The high from this hash is extremely physically stoning and will induce couch-lock along with a raging appetite. Each hit comes with delightful tastes of spices, herbs, and mint. ICE flowers boast 18% THC.

Indoor plants produce yields of between 400–450g/m² and grow to heights of between 80–120cm. Outdoor plants offer yields of between 500–550g/plant, reaching taller heights of up to 200cm. ICE prefers mild climates and has a flowering period of 8–10 weeks. Outdoor plants will be ready to harvest at some point in September.

4. Sherbet Queen

Sherbet Queen is an indica-dominant specimen that is simply brimming with fruity sensations. The sheer pungency of the scents and tastes of this queen are what make her so desirable as a hash plant. Mixing euphoria along with such delicious flavours is the equation for a high to remember. Such quality within this strain comes as no surprise considering she is the descendent of Girl Scout Cookies. Sherbet Queen features 85% indica genetics, a trait which is very apparent in the high. A few strong tokes of this strain will result in utter relaxation, couch-lock, and the feeling of stress melting away.

Sherbet Queen is a relatively easy strain to grow and doesn’t require that much attention. She puts out good yields and will thrive both indoors and outdoors. Outdoor plants will be ready to harvest during the end of September/beginning of October.

5. White Widow

White Widow is a name known all across the world of cannabis. This award-winning variety is shrouded in mystery, as its exact origins are still not confirmed. However, what is known is that the strain is an absolute Dutch classic and was cultivated for the first time within the Netherlands. Legend states that White Widow originated in the wild as a landrace strain from Brazil that was pollinated by an indica hybrid form a southern region of India. The strain features a perfect balance between 50% indica genetics and 50% sativa genetics. This makes her ideal for creating hash to stimulate the mind and stone the body. This strain features a THC content of 19% alongside medium levels of CBD. Every hit is infused with the grounding flavours of earth and pine.

White Widow can be grown indoors and outdoors, providing great results in both environments. Indoor plants will churn out yields of 450–500g/m² and grow to heights of 60–100cm. Plants cultivated outdoors offer yields of up to 600g/plant and top out at heights of 190cm. She has a flowering time of 8–9 weeks. Outdoor plants will be ready to harvest during late October.
