I’m bastiaan. and i’m nellie. Welcome to our Drugslab. This can really make me paranoid. In this lab we try out different drugs to see what effects they have on our body. If you’re curious about a certain drug, let us know and maybe we’ll try it. Thijs asked us to try one of the most consumed drugs in the world: hash.
Here it is, the hash. Many people think that in the Netherlands we all smoke hash all day. But that’s not true. That’s not true. Though it is acquiesced here. I haven’t smoked a joint in ages. Me neither. This is the hash. We’ve chosen Maroc.
It has an average strength in terms of thc and cbd. and is sold in every Dutch coffeeshop. It looks a bit like a piece of bouillon cube. Weed are the buds of the cannabis plant. And to make hash, they take the resin from the plant. and press it together with the plant residue, and then you get this.
It smells just like a weed plant. The active substance of hash is. 6,6,9Trimethyl3pentyl6Hdibenzo (b,d)pyran1ol. Wow. These compounds are called cannabinoids. THC and CBD are the most important ones. THC has a psychoactive effect, while CBD has a soothing, calming effect.
And that combination is supposed to be chill. You can consume hash in various ways. You can eat it. but then it takes longer to work and the effect is stronger. As we saw when you ate space cake. Everything you’re saying spins around in my head. You can also drink it, but that’s the same as when you eat it.
It’s stronger and less predictable. You can also vaporize it. Less harmful than smoking. But we’re going to smoke it. The oldskool Bob Marley way. We’re going to throw dice. The highest number will do it. Yes? Yes. Six.
You threw the highest number, so you get to smoke. first we prepare the joint. Most important, the hash. We have paper. And we have the filter tip. We’ll roll it around and light up. And we add some tobacco. Can you roll the hash into small balls and make the tip? The hash may be a bit hard, but you can warm it up between your fingers.
You often hear that smoking weed or hash makes your eyes red. That’s because the blood vessels dilate, so also in your eyes. They also say it makes you creative. But it also makes you lazy. A joint can make you feel high or stoned. High is due to the THC, which makes you spacey. And stoned is due to the CBD, which makes you calm and relaxed.
