Turkey also produces some fine hash. While cannabis is illegal in the country, its cultivation and production are allowed in many provinces for medical and/or research purposes.
Turkish hash is produced in a similar fashion to Afghan, Pakistani, or Moroccan hash; by pressing and heating large amounts of kief into big, black blocks. When pressed correctly, Turkish hash is rock-hard and brittle. It has a slightly spicy aroma and makes for a very smooth smoke.
Turkish hash tends to be of mild potency and produces a unique cerebral high rather than the strong physical stone you’d expect from hash. This could be because it is made from younger plants.
