Looking to turn a cannabis strain into hash? Certain strains respond more favourable to the process.

When selecting a cannabis strain to press into hash, terpenes - the aromatic oils that are secreted from the same plant glands as cannabinoids like THC and CBD - are key. Terpene profiles are responsible for scents such as mint, pine, citrus, floral and berry that are often used to come up with strain names.

Strains high in caryophyllene make the best hash, suggests a new article from Leafly. The pungent and hearty terpene withstands processing well and creates a robust flavour. Caryophyllene is found in aromatic oils like clove and rosemary, and is naturally present in spices like oregano, cinnamon, basil and black pepper. Typical strain names with high caryophyllene profiles are Girl Scout Cookies, Lavender and Blueberry Cheesecake.

Another excellent terpene for hash concentrates is limonene, which is found in strains like Lemon OG, Hindu Kush, Sour Diesel and Grapefruit. Limonene has a strong citrus profile and is the terpene responsible for the fragrance from fresh citrus fruit peels.

Cannabis concentrates are gaining popularity among adult-use consumers, but many concentrates involve solvents and oils during the extraction process.

Hash is a solventless concentrate, meaning it does not rely on chemicals or carriers during extraction, but rather utilizes natural processes like dry sifting, pressure techniques and ice water extraction. This keeps the trichomes and terpenes in tact, providing a more robust and flavourful experience for the consumer.
