Cannabis cultivation in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley is an ancient practice that dates back to the beginning of recorded history. During the Lebanese civil war between 1975-1990, it provided funding for feuding militias and turned Lebanon into one of the world’s largest hashish exporters. Today, Lebanon’s feuding militias are still using drugs as a source of income.
Hash consists of the resin that is collected from the flowers of marijuana plants. Desirable for its high tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content, hash comes in a variety of types or concentrates. This can make purchasing hash at a legal dispensary challenging unless you are able to distinguish the differences.
