About Hashberry

Hashberry is a North Indian indica cannabis breed. It tastes and smells like a combination of hash and berries, with a hint of minty pepper. Hashberry is a hybrid of an unknown and the Male Landace hybrid. The Hashberry is popular as a tough breed that can grow in most places with minimal supervision.

Hashberry has been quite popular in the Marijuana business and was once chosen as one of the top ten strains by the popular High Times.  Hashberry can be described as a carefully created hybrid because its parents are also known as exotic brands. The parents were selected because of their toughness. Hashberry, as a result, is highly heat resistant and can thrive in adverse environmental conditions.

The name comes from the smell, basically and not from the parent strains, as sometimes thought. Perhaps, this is because hash, which it gets half its name from, is also a psychoactive drug with some psychedelic properties. The use of Hash dates back to about 3000 years ago. It is also believed that Hashberry gets part of its name from the city where it was first grown: Ashbury.

As this strain develops, the buds grow dense with lots of flowers. Although it is heat resistant, the Hashberry also develops well in cool regions. It is quite popular in Oregon as both outdoor and greenhouse plant.

In good environmental conditions, Hashberry has a lot of yields, with the leaves getting wider from the top to the bottom of the plant. It does not grow very tall, which makes it a good choice for indoor cultivation, provided they are well spaced. Like most Indica strains, Hashberry has a flowering period of about eight to nine weeks.

The buds of most Hashberry plants are covered with THC glands which make pollinating material available in abundance. This strain has a welcoming scent–earthy and fruity, even before preparation. It gets much better after preliminary processing; this is when the hashberry aroma becomes perceivable. Both medical and recreational users choose Hashberry as their favorite strain. Some hybrids have been developed using the Hashberry as parent strains.

Hashberry has THC levels of 15%-18%. The average indica content stands at 12.5% while the Hashberry average is 15%. It is predominantly indica, but initial effects can be said to be more similar to Sativa’s. These initial effects include heightened brain activity and some increased creative push. With time, the initial response gives way to drowsiness and a feeling of body relaxation. His particular indica strain is effective on mild pain and largely ineffectual in addressing more serious aches.

Hashberry has been discovered to have greater therapeutic effects on men than women. However, it generally helps in alleviating stress, mild pain, loss of appetite, fatigue, and nausea.

The most commonly reported negative side effects of the Hashberry are drowsiness, paranoia, dry mouth, and eyes. Paranoia is more common in first-time users and is also dependent on the quantity consumed.

Because of the boost, it gives to cerebral activity and creativity; users are usually advised to restrict it to afternoon or evening use. However, some people use it at night for its sedating effects. It can also be useful for stress, depression and insomnia patients.

Origin

It was the year 1980. A hippie, while driving to a rainbow meeting stopped over to give a bag of weed to some people from Mandala Seeds. These good people decided to try out the gift and loved it. They then proceeded to cultivate these seeds for years. These seeds came to be the foundation for one of the Hashberry parents. The other half of Hashberry’s lineage came from a landrace hybrid named J7. The origin or parents of the seeds given by the hippie is unknown to this day.

Strain Type

Hashberry consists of about 90% indica and 10% sativa. The sativa traces account for the initial surge of mental activity in most users.  The major effect is its relaxing effect, which lasts much longer. It aids both mental and muscle relaxation. Its fast growth and high yield are typical properties of the indica breed.

Treats

Medical Benefits of Hashberry

Hashberry can be used for pain relief purposes. However, it should only be used when the pain involved is mild. Acute pains and aches are generally unresponsive to Hashberry. This strain also has some sedative properties. It keeps the body and brain in a very relaxed, sometimes drowsy mood after the initial burst of energy. This makes Hashberry a good choice for combating insomnia and other conditions involving an inability to sleep. 

It is used to relieve these symptoms:

Terpenes

Terpene Profile

The strain is popular for its blend of hash and berries with a subtle hint of mint and pepper, creating a unique buzz. Lab analysis shows a THC content of 0.2%, with β-Myrcene and α-Pinene, are the most prominent of the terpenes, coming in at 0.23% and 0.2% respectively. Also present are traces of Camphene, β-Pinene, δ-Limonene, Ocimene, β-Ocimene, Linalool, Isopulegol, β-Caryophyllene, Nerolidol , Nerolidol 2 and α-Bisabolol.

β-Myrcene partly accounts for the earthy smell of Hashberry. It has also been investigated, with some success, for its protection of the heart tissues and prevention of ischemic stroke. Generally, Myrcene is regarded as a mild muscle relaxer with analgesic properties.

α-Pinene helps to reduce short term memory loss, which can be a side effect of excess THC. It also has anti-inflammatory effects. α-Pinene also acts as a bronchodilator; improving the flow of air to the lungs. Hashberry is one of the strains with the highest THC percentage.
