This makes Baalbek Valley cannabis perfect for hash processing and contributes to the potency, excellence, and general goodness of authentic Lebanese hash. The raw cannabis plant's natural drying and curing process gives Red Lebanese hash its distinctive red tint from sunlight and its own natural pistils, which emit an orange-reddish colour. Cultivators leave the plants on the pitch until they're just about ready. After processing, the hashish is allowed to dry and thoroughly cure.
What sets Lebanese hash apart from that of other Middle Eastern countries is the method used to cure hashish there. Hash is matured for one or two full harvesting cycles, which can span anywhere from four to eight months. This enables the hash to intensify its scent and flavour and acquire the appropriate consistency that is malleable yet hard enough to function. The protracted procedure intensifies the strains of cannabis from Lebanon's innate woodiness and distinctive spice compounds. Red Lebanese Hash is noted for having notably intellectual effects compared to other traditional types of hash, which tend to be more sedating, even if it still offers an amazing body stone and waves of relaxation that are unlike other hashish that is widely accessible worldwide.
