A drug made from a resin found in the female flowers of cannabis. This is precisely the hashish that is most often smuggled into European countries, although it is possible to make it at home with the help of a few tools. What are the effects of the addictive substance, how to recognize hashish and how to treat drug addiction if it occurs?

The effects of hashish

It is common knowledge that hashish has a really long history. It practically goes hand in hand with the history of mankind, i.e. since prehistoric times. While today it is an addictive substance, in the past it was used, for example, as part of various rituals and during celebrations. In ancient sources, you would also read about hashish eaters who obtained the psychoactive effects that THC from hemp promised them.

Today, however, hashish is mainly consumed by smoking. We would meet the so-called "eaters" very, very rarely. Compared to the use of classic cannabis, the effects of hashish are much stronger, so it is important to be careful. Some types of hashish contain up to 70% THC, which means that, especially for those who have not used the drug before, an abnormal strength of the substance may occur.

Although it is true that the general effects of the drug are very individual (depending on the type of personality of the user), in general it is true that:

  • Time is very slow, distorted, slowly passing.
  • Sounds and colors are clearer.
  • Visual or auditory hallucinations may occur.
  • There are also feelings of depersonalization.
  • Not infrequently, short-term memory disorders occur.

Hashish symptoms

How to tell if someone has used hashish? There are several typical symptoms that will reveal the drug to you. Specifically, it is unnatural gaiety, also exuberance, dilated pupils and red eyes. The pulse is faster, the appetite for food is significantly higher, a person is also revealed by his sweat, or rather the smell of sweat, which can be compared to burnt leaves or burnt grass.

How to identify hashish

Hashish currently exists in several forms. In addition to the traditional stronger grouping, it is available in the form of oil. However, if we stick to the classic form, you can recognize its quality both at first touch and at first sight. Hashish is rather plastic and, after heating in the hands, sticky, slightly crumbly. However, if it crumbles from the very beginning, it is not of very good quality due to the resin used, which is its basis.

In terms of color, hashish is usually black or dark brown in shade. The psychoactive substance THC is found in approximately 30-90% of the drug.

What are the risks?

Of course, one of the main risks of using hashish is addiction. In addicted individuals, so-called psychomotor disorders, persistent dry throat, and enormous hunger or vomiting and diarrhea may occur.

If an individual starts using the drug who is already suffering from a poor mental state, they may be more prone to long-term depression and may be prone to self-harm. There are also perception disorders, memory lapses, and the drug, among other things, damages the lungs.

How to cure hashish addiction

Hashish belongs to the so-called cannabis drugs, so the treatment of addiction to it is similar to that of other, similar types.

  • One of the ways to prevent the adverse consequences of using hashish and how to recover from addiction to it is the so-called acute intoxication, where we let the drug gradually wear off in a safe environment. It takes about three hours and it is really important that the user stays in a safe place.
  • A certain withdrawal state occurs, but it may not occur every time. It usually brings with it states that are similar to a hangover. This leads to headaches, mood swings, general anxiety or a general disruption of focus and concentration.
  • Treatment of addiction to hashish and other cannabis drugs can also take place with the help of experts. As part of counseling and ongoing psychotherapy, individual needs can be targeted, thereby increasing the likelihood of recovery.

What is the range after hashish?

The range after hashish is not too long, the effects wear off within three hours. After that, however, the mentioned withdrawal state can occur, when symptoms typical of a hangover appear. Aggressiveness, sleep disorders, night terrors or fogginess, as well as loss of appetite can be added.

How long does hashish stay in the blood or urine or saliva?

Compared to other drugs of a similar nature, hashish does not stay in the blood for very long. After a single intake, it remains there for about one day (in the case of long-term use of the drug, the presence in the blood can be detected for up to a week).

In the urine, the substance is detected for eight days (with long-term use, even thirty days), while it remains in the saliva for a maximum of 3 days.

How to get hashish out of your body

The addictiveness or effects of hashish mainly lie in one single component, namely THC. The task is therefore to break down the psychoactive substance from the body, which can be achieved, for example, by regularly exercising, sweating, and having enough physical exercise, which will significantly speed up the metabolism, and thus also the burning, or the breaking down of THC from the body.

However, in this effort to break down the drug from the body, it can happen that it will be detectable in the blood for a longer time. THC metabolites are first released into the blood, only then are they consumed and excreted.
