50 Years Ago . . .

I am typing this stoned on hash.

While that doesn’t sound at all remarkable on a cannabis forum, it is a true milestone. Flashback to May 1970 and the first cannabis I ever smoked. That was 50 years ago this week by the way. I was a very cannabis-curious teenager and so for my 16th birthday, I bought myself a nickel (a $5 gram) of hash from a high school acquaintance. We did the deal in the high school smoking area next to the parking lot at lunchtime. A little nugget wrapped in the paper foil from a cigarette package. Looking back now, it was an anonymous mid-weight black hash from Afghanistan or Pakistan, dark green and fingernail soft. But it did the job nicely.

Fast-forward 50 years, and I am still smoking hash. I guess this makes me a lifelong stoner. But I did manage to squeeze in a couple of wives, some kids, grandkids, and an interesting career that I recently closed out where I had reached the top of my particular niche. Not in money unfortunately, but at least respect.

But, back to my point. I am smoking hash. The significance of this is that 1) I’m still alive 2) this is legal hash purchased from the official provincial government-owned online store. And this is the same government that busted my ass for possession of hash a few months after my initiation.

So this is something that I thought that I would never see. Actual legal hashish. Legally grown, processed and quality tested for pesticides and psychoactive content. Packaged in a boring and hopelessly unopenable child-proof envelope with bilingual warnings. 33.88% THC. Complete with a government excise sticker on the back . . .

I know that hash is legal to buy in Amsterdam and I sampled some awesome coffee shop stock when I visited a few years back. But the source is still shady. And in Colorado, California and the other legal US states that I have visited, hash seems to be a bastard child with vapes, shatter and rosin etc taking all of the concentrate shelf space. So even though I paid too much, I had to have some. It is very yummy and somehow somewhat reminiscent of those early buzzes 50 years ago.

I liked the story but don't buy your drugs from the government. They're evil hypocrites and they don't deserve your money. They're still jailing people for this stuff if you're not paying into their cartel.

My second smoke was some dark brown on the inside, black outside, gold seal hash back in the early 90's. Really stoney stuff. These days I only smoke hash that I make from the weed that I grow.

Lovely
It was all hash here when I started smoking... weed was a rarity.
I’d buy hash from a shop if it meant they’d leave me alone to smoke it.

Dire straits, brothers in arms:

Now the sun's gone to hell
And
The moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line in your palm
We are fools to make war
On our brothers in arms

Have no fear.

I went through a 20 year span where I could not find hash. Yes, 20 years! I always had bud but none of the people in my circle had hash. So a few years ago when the black market cracked open before legalization, I started collecting. I just hauled out the contents of my hash drawer & I have 11 that were sourced from the black market, 10 from bubble & only one from the legal store. Maybe the hash countries are using diluted genetics or maybe nostalgia is at play or maybe the imports are actually local fakes now but my latest bubble attempts taste better & kick much harder than any of them. But they do smell nice.

When I was a teenager we had all different types of hash here in Cali, people were smuggling it in back then, red and blonde leb, primo from afghan, Moroccan, Paki, temple balls from Nepal, and more I can’t remember. I went to Nepal and made hash for years but only brought back personal. I then made hash here at home before trim got so popular I couldn’t get much any more. I make some rosin now, but there was nothing like all the smells, tastes, and the smoking pleasure from the different types of hash...

Good story and glad you made it all these years to taste legal hash. Never should have been illegal, but that is a given. Hope you can make your own hash or do some dry sift from your own plants.

By the time I got around to hash it was the eighties as I recall. Blonde Lebanese was $10 a gram. Inflation eh? Good high but not as good as the first smokes I had 1974 era. The best buds/shake of the Mexicans and possibly a Jamaican? Crazy sativa highs. Still searching and doing pretty good in finding such highs but more to be done, as they were still more tripped out than current stuff.

I have a gram of Red Lebanese here. Very soft, like lightly pressed kief. I seem to remember that Lebanese hash was usually hard - both blonde & red. I don't know, but I remember Lebanese as being really good & this is OK, but a lightweight. Ditto some Nepalese that I found. I remember Nepalese fingertip hash that was true one toke fucked hash. This stuff? Not in the same league.
