The cultivation of cannabis has always been an important practice in South Asia, including vast parts of India, Nepal, and other areas surrounding the Himalayan mountains. In the north of India, cannabis is mostly known by the name ganja. While the raw cannabis plant is grown and consumed widely in this area, the most popular form of distribution is the countless extracts, mixtures, and concentrates. For example, there is bhang, a recipe that goes back to the second millennium BCE, consisting of ground cannabis leaves added to a milk-based drink and often topped with spices and fruit for taste. Despite strict government regulations surrounding cannabis products, dedicated “bhang shops” are still allowed to operate in India and sell this delicacy due to overwhelming demand and respect for the cultural tradition. Charas is another one of these cannabis-based concentrates. You might have heard of it – it’s been making the rounds in the Western cannabis scene lately. But what is Charas, and why should you give it a try? Learn more about this concentrate in this blog. Thanks for stopping by! Why not give something from our farm a try?
