Why Hash Gummies Are All the Rage

In 2021, the popularity of hash gummies really took off. What sets hash gummies apart from other popular cannabis gummies? With so many edibles for sale on the market, it can be overwhelming to distinguish one gummy from another. Let’s take a deep look at the ingredients, process, and science behind what sets hash gummies apart.

How Hash Gummies Are Crafted

The cannabis plant’s physical structure includes the stem, flowers, cola, and trichomes, which are delicate balls on the tips of the flower that contain cannabinoids and aromatic terpenes. A loose collection of these resinous trichomes is known as kief. Kief is transformed into hash through heat and pressure that dissolve the boundaries between the trichome heads until they form one mass of resin. This process retains the potency of the cannabinoids and terpenes and concentrates them—hash has more CBD and THC per gram than flower.  

Artisans have used hash edibles for various reasons throughout the history of the plant. Hash is great in edibles, especially gummies, because it makes accurately producing a precise dosage easier than with other cannabis mediums. Hash’s process of refinement from a concentration of trichomes means that it contains lots of terpenes, making the flavor complex. It’s also a favorite of cannabis consumers who prefer a whole-plant, chemical-free experience. 

Hash gummies are made by mixing gelatin, fruit extract, sweetener, and hash oil into a smooth blend, then poured into a mold and left to set. Vegan gummies can use pectin or seaweed-based alternatives to gelatin. If you shop with a brand that uses the ice water technique in their hash edibles, such as Kiva or Plus, their hash will retain all the original terpenes and flavonoids of the plant. Ice water hash is made by freezing off the trichomes in an ice bath, which is then filtered through a fine mesh. This process doesn’t use chemical solvents, such as butane or propane, making ice water hash edibles a popular choice for those who want to enjoy a chemical-free experience that’s packed with the original flavor of the plant. 

How Long Do Hash Gummies Take to Kick In? And How Long Do Effects Last?

Like most edibles, hash gummies have longer onset times than other forms of cannabis consumption, such as smoking or vaping. This is because absorption first occurs in the digestive tract. From there, active ingredients enter the bloodstream and travel to the liver. In the liver, active ingredients are metabolized before they are released back into the bloodstream and enter the brain, at which point the effects appear. You can enjoy the slow, easy climb to full effects after about 30 minutes to two hours and the effects of hash gummies can last 6 to 12 hours. 

Why Are Hash Gummies Becoming Popular?

The popularity of hash edibles is exploding and we expect this trend to continue in 2022. Here’s why:

They Offer a Full Cannabis Experience

Because hash gummies are made with cannabis trichomes, which are loaded with a high concentration of THC, they tend to be heavier hitting than your typical edible. Just one gram of hash contains a whopping 1000mg THC!

They Preserve Terpenes and Flavor

Hash contains a high dose of cannabis plant matter, so you’ll enjoy a potent experience that allows you to really taste the earthy and terpene-rich flavor of the plant in hash gummies.  Whether you like tart and tangy or sweet and fruity flavors, people love hash gummies because they are more likely to have a strong cannabis terpene flavor compared to normal cannabis gummies, creating the ultimate sensory experience. 

They’re Discrete

With hash gummies, you don’t have to worry about attracting attention from those around you, allowing you to maintain your privacy. 

Even if you’re not trying to be discreet with your cannabis intake, hash gummies are a great choice for those who want a different experience than smoking. What’s more, is that hash gummies offer a longer duration of relief than smoking or vaping.

They’re Easy to Dose for Day or Night

One aspect of hash gummies is in their versatility. From a quick afternoon pick-me-up to a goodnight sleep aid, there are hash gummies for every need. A big part of finding the right hash edible for you is getting the right dosage. We believe that cannabis gummies are the perfect product for anyone who wants to be controlled and secure in their dosage, since they are manufactured to produce a consistent experience. With hash gummies it is easy to measure your consumption. Each product has clear labeling and consumption instructions, so you’ll know exactly how much CBD and THC you’re getting per cannabis gummy.

As we say with any cannabis product, we highly recommend to start low and go slow; everyone’s body, mind, and metabolism will react a little bit differently to the hash edibles.

They Preserve Well Over Time 

Generally speaking, candies and gummies have a long shelf life. As long as they’re properly stored in their preservation packaging, they (and you) will be good to go. We also recommend storing your hash gummies in a cool and dark place, which means no humid kitchens. Make sure to keep them away from strong-smelling foods as well. 

No need to worry about dried-out flowers or lost potency with these carefully crafted gummies. They’re delicious and should be enjoyed as such. Let the taste of fresh fruit and rich sugar take your mind away from your day-to-day stressors and you’ll see that hash gummies are a truly satisfying treat.

Hash, Beyond the Gummies

We would be remiss if we didn’t tell you about our other favorite hash edibles and products, since hash comes in many forms. Hash is a serious cannabis superstar, and we love to see it getting the love it deserves.

First up, chocolate. Need we say more? Kiva uses ice-water hash in all their chocolate products. We love their Terra Bites, which are small 5mg THC chocolate-covered cannabis bites that come in Blueberry, Espresso, Sea Salt Caramel, and more. For a sweet sleep aid, try the Midnight Mint CBN Dark Chocolate Bar.

Why stop at chocolate when you could have some award-winning gourmet marshmallows? Handcrafted in San Francisco since 2015, Super Mellows are another delicious cannabis edible with 100mg THC per package. They feature a balanced hybrid with full-spectrum, solventless ice water hash made in collaboration with late master hashishin, Frenchy Cannoli. 

For a hash edible lighter on flavor but heavier on potency, we love the LEVEL Sativa Hashtabs. Each 100% vegan, swallowable tablet has 25mg THC, with scores that make them easy to split if you’d prefer a lower dose. Think of these as you would a pill of Tylenol—they’re meant to be swallowed with water, not chewed or allowed to dissolve under your tongue.

LEVEL is committed to making cannabis products without superfluous ingredients, and they have succeeded in these concentrated extra-strength and ultra-relaxing Hashtabs, featuring pure ice water hash and no calories or sugars. The result of this fierce commitment to pure cannabis products is an authentic, clean, and functional experience that maximizes targeted effects and therapeutic benefits.

For a fun and authentic hash party experience, we love these Eureka Hash Sativa Infused Party Pre-Rolls from Sundae School. A full gram of combined full spectrum hash and Orange Crush flower, rolled up and ready to party, this preroll is made for sharing and features a sweet citrus aroma and an uplifting cerebral effect.

Non-Hash Cannabis Gummies

While the demand for hash-specific gummies is getting hotter and brands are adding more hash-based edibles to their menus, the market is still growing and hasn’t reached the height of non-hash-infused edibles. Here are a few of our favorite non-hash cannabis gummies for a wide range of effects and relief:

1. CBN Based Lychee Gummies

CBNRelief Lychee Gummies from PLUS are one of those perfect ratio products, with 3mg CBD, 2mg CBN, and 1mg THC per gummy to calm your mind, relax your body, and enjoy a beautiful journey to dreamland.

This makes for a sleep gummy that helps you fall asleep faster, stay asleep, and wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on your day!

2. Live Resin Based Gummies

The resin flavor is gorgeously deep and complex, and each gummy features a single strain combined with different fruits to complement and bring the sunshine of a cannabis harvest to you in an easy, delicious package.

3. Vegan, Low Sugar Gummies

Right now, we are loving these Milktea Sundae Boba Mochi Gummies from Sundae School for their vegan, low sugar, and delicious relaxing and freeing indica infusion. They are a perfect sweet vegan treat, with delicious brown sugar milk tea boba flavors in a chewy, delicious gummy. Each delicious treat has 10mg THC and is coated with kinoko powder to serve you real mochi goodness. We never thought we would see the day where our cannabis edibles could taste just like milk tea and be vegan. What a time to be alive!

4. Higher-CBD to Lower-THC Pear Gummies

Kiva Sparkling Pear Prosecco gummies have 6mg CBD and 2mg THC per gummy for a relaxed, euphoric feeling. Their delicious, light, effervescent flavor is reminiscent of a day in wine country.

5. Watermelon Indica Gummies

Some tasty marijuana gummies that we can’t get enough of are Valhalla Sour Watermelon Indica Gummies. Valhalla makes delicious confections in Santa Rosa, California, using local, sun-grown, and sustainably farmed cannabis. You can truly taste the fresh, clean nature of their products.

They’re formulated with 1:9 CBD to THC ratio for the ultimate in unwinding and relaxation, perfect for a chill and cozy evening. The blackberry and lemon remind us of a tasty fruit-forward tea—a gorgeous way to end a long, busy day.

7. High-CBD and Low-THC Strawberry Gummies

We are loving WYLD’s Strawberry 20:1 CBD:THC Gummies for a sweet, softly chewy gummy that really does it all. This real-fruit gummy relaxes your muscles while helping to focus your mind, and is our go-to gummy to help us feel luxurious in our bodies.

DIY Hash Gummy Bear Edibles

Cannabis gummies are easy edibles to make at home. If you want to create your own hash gummies, this recipe for fruit-flavored gummy bear edibles is perfect for the beginner confectioner. 

The following hash gummies recipe is adapted from The 420 Shack—and at 8mg per piece, you’ll want to start slow! Adjust the hash amount down if necessary.

What you will need:

Ingredients:

  • 7 medium-sized apples

  • 4oz baby spinach

  • 3-4 tbsp lemon juice (adjust to taste, fresh-squeezed works best)

  • 2 tsp unrefined blonde coconut sugar

  • 0.5g dry-sieved hash (500g THC)

  • 2 tsp apple extract

  • 100g (1/2 cup + 2 tbsp) unflavored gelatin

Dosage:

Makes 63 gummies at 8mg THC per piece, for a total of 500mg THC.

Instructions: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°F. When ready, spread your hash onto a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes. This step will decarbolyze and dry the THC. Be careful not to burn your hash.

  2. Wash and cut the apple slices into small chunks.

  3. Rinse, dry and cut the spinach.

  4. Juice the apples and spinach, alternating, until you have about 3 ¾ cups of juice. Into a medium-sized saucepan, strain juice through a sieve, removing the pulp. 

  5. To the apple and spinach juice, add the lemon juice, unrefined coconut sugar, hash, and apple extract. Place saucepan over medium heat, and stir with a rubber spatula to combine thoroughly. 

  6. Sprinkle gelatin on top, stir lightly for a few seconds, then wait for about five minutes.

  7. Over medium heat, slowly dissolve the gelatin in the saucepan. Do not bring it to a boil. If there are any big balls of gelatin, use the spatula to split them apart.

  8. Stir quickly and consistently as bubbles appear in the mixture. When there are a lot of bubbles, keep the saucepan over medium heat for about 30 more seconds, then remove from heat.

  9. Pour the liquid mixture into silicone gummy molds.

  10. Let your molds cool for an hour then refrigerate them until they are fully firm (this normally takes 12 to 24 hours).
