Lebanon hash is a real old school hash, known among enthusiasts for its strong potency. It is made by collecting the resin from cannabis plants growing in Lebanon, where the unique soil and climate makes for some exceptional plants.
What is the strongest hash?
Cannabis cultivation in Lebanon predates the country’s civil war and is a vital part of the Bekaa Valley culture. It is even incorporated into the local religion: there’s a temple in Baalbek with an engraving of a cannabis plant. The cultivation of cannabis is a source of employment, and it can be very profitable for farmers. In fact, before the global financial crisis sank in, it was reported that Lebanon produced about 80 percent of the world’s supply of hashish.
However, the majority of Lebanese people don’t approve of cannabis consumption; it is considered a dangerous drug by many and has been linked to gangs, murders and rapes. The government has been trying to combat this perception with a series of campaigns, including one in which it encouraged the cultivation of crops with a higher value-add, such as flowers and fruit.
This new trend has resulted in a decline of the production of hash, which is currently at an all-time low. This is especially because the economic crisis has inflated the cost of fuel and other farming inputs, making it harder to earn money from the sale of crops. This has also affected the price of cannabis products on the market.
