First of all the Moroccan farmers do not want to make the highest quality as they make much more profit from quantity cheaper hash then a smaller amount of quality hash.
Second of all is that all hashish is made from seeded plants as it is impossible to grow sinsemilla in the RIF, lets be honest sinsi hash of the same variety is better.
Third reason is the soil in the RIF and lack of water, only a few farmers have great soil and adequate water, the rest just bumble along doing the best they can.
All female seeds on water drips with nutrients helps but can not cure the problems.
Then the locals dry the plants on the roof in the sun, fast and efficient but not best for the resin. They try but as they have only made hash from their Kief plants for 50 years they have a lot to learn. RCC and I went for a visit 20 years ago and showed them how to make less then 200 grams of super clean resin from 100 kg of Kief plants, they made 2 Kg of their zero zero from the same 100 kgs. No farmer was interested, they want quantity not quality.
This is still how most farmers make there hash'
The guy we spoke too, quoted 250kilos to 1kilo Hash.
We went through many samples of what id call farmers grade sift.
Ranging from around 30-60 percent heads mixed with hairs and dust etc.
We found some really good Azilla,
the high was truely memorable, you just dont get his quality of high anymore, i would of loved to of seen the plants.
thisone came already pressed from an oldtimer German guy.
comes on in waves, 10, 20 mins later, still coming...
almost like coming up on mushrooms , very nice.
the other was Kush from Chefchouen,
came as powder straight from the farmer.
cleanish, around 60 perecent heads,
Very strong kush hit, really confused kinda high, real scatterbrain stuff.
this cleaned up really nice.
big double bubble full melter.
We collected many samples and then tried to clean them up.
Due to locations we couldnt get to use our best screens and only had several screens on hand, at the farm.
So we got to work.
First off static tech on 120.
Major fail, ccouldnt get a good flat surface to swipe on.
Was great at collecting dust,dirt though.
So we tride carding. This kinda worked, but would take hours
And a lot of small dirt particles would be almost impossible to remove.
we then tried our western sift tech, justbreaking the buds over the screen we used the local kif hybrid which actually had a very unusual orangy citrus terp which actually came through in the taste.
The sift came out at around 60% heads so still not good enough yet.
The local guy resifted the material to show us traditional stlye,
With the bowl and sticks.
I always thoughtvthey where just bashing away but it is actually a tech.
When we looked at there screen under the scope it had a really strange weave.
Not like a usual weave but 5strands really close then one about 50microns away.
(got a pic that explains it much better)
so that when they drum wih the sticks it vibrates the buds and
Resin will fall with each bounce.
So we collect the hash, good farmers grade
But not clean enough for me.
Luckilly Titoon had brough the hair straighteners,
So off to work we go,
Pressing hash powder is a great way to test the quality of the oils
Without any more refinement.
Really helped us to get to the quality without hours an hours of work.
This was new to the farmers. They watched carefully.
They where super impressed with the oils.
And the fact no butane, alcohol was used to make it
So they would all actually try some. lol
Which knocked them on their ass but they love it!
All the Rosin 's where very strong, kept that Moroc flavour and most importantly, had a great high.
just In a golden oil form not pressed hashish.
