Al Hoceima Moroccan Hash
For starters, Morocco is world-renowned for the hash it produces. It’s recognized as the source for some of the best hash in the world. The nation is located in north Africa, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. The history of hash in Morocco goes back hundreds of years.
Experts think that it was the Arab invasion of the Maghreb that brought cannabis plants to the region. However, local Moroccans didn’t just use weed to get high – they used it for its textile and fibrous qualities, too.
At the time, cannabis was grown on a small scale locally, with the northern Rif region of Morocco becoming a notable centre of production. In the late 19th century, this region received special production rights for several Rif tribes due to their specialization and capabilities.
The creation of Moroccan Hash is thought to have occurred somewhere between the 15th and 17th centuries. Locals commonly smoked hash with Black Tobacco in a ‘Sebsi Pipe,’ mixed it into food or used it as part of Sufi rituals.
