you refer to this area i think:
very interesting, is it a traditional area for dry sift hash?
It could as well have been something completely different as you know the dutch coffeeshops play funny games with the names of weed and hash... but i always liked the thought that it was chinese hash, as it was something really special... would love to find something like that again... it was black from the outside, very dark red inside, as written sweet and spicy taste and it was pure sativa, not the most psychedelic one but uplifting with very good mood and very clear in the head.
i have tried a variety of black hashs imported to the netherlands like manali or pavarti and a lot more of which i can't remember the name (but basically all black hashs the bluebird has on its menu, and from selected other shops all over the netherlands) but nothing compared to this one...
i like to think of hash making as an art... i know there are lots of people out there who say the best hash is the one you make yourself at home. but i tend to disagree, of course you can make incredible hash yourself, but a hash of high quality made traditionally in "hash-countries" is something amazing, imagine how much work has gone into the plants with which they made the hash, probably they have been adapted to the area over centuries and the knowledge of how to make the best hash out of this plants has evolved and been passed on over generations of growers... i always had the impression too that one can find a much larger variety of cannabinoid combinations with import hash than with the standard dutch gene pool...
anyways sorry for drifting of, i'm just smoking some very nice maroc hash
