The Himalayan Villages of Wild Weed
Even though cannabis is illegal in India, you’ll be surprised to hear about the enormous cannabis farms growing high up in the Himalayas. There are villages that are completely dedicated to growing cannabis and are the biggest suppliers of hashish in the world. Read this article to find out more about the Himalayan cannabis farms.
India has always been a world-renowned place for marijuana history, with its use dating as far back as the Shiva. Until now, India has not lost its flair for the marijuana business, with cannabis farms high up in the Himalayas producing tons of product a year. These farms are a far cry from the entheogenic use that the Shiva gave to marijuana as these guys are all about business.
What is beautiful about these farms is that marijuana grows basically wild, giving the locals more than enough supply to meet the Indian demand. Nestled high up in the Himalayan mountains, even the police can barely control the amount of marijuana being grown. These Himalayan villages are basically covered in wild weed, and their entire lives are dedicated to the growing of marijuana. This article is a journey into the hard work that goes into the marijuana farms buried deep in the Himalayan mountain range.
The making of charas
Charas is what the Himalayan marijuana farms are all about, and is a handmade type of hashish that typically comes from India. The role of hashish has been enormous in India’s cultural and spiritual history, and was legal up until the 1980s. The Himalayas is the place most generally reputed to be the origin of marijuana, and it is in this mountain range that the Sadhus (the holy men) would go to meditate. They were among the first people to make charas.
Making charas is a long and tedious process, and requires a lot of hard work. In fact, the same technique is still used today that was used hundreds of years ago by those seeking spiritual refuge in the mountains. The buds are pressed and rolled between the fingers to remove the resinous material from the plant material. This is very similar to the way we make finger hash today. This is probably the most time-consuming way to make hashish, and the villagers living in the Himalayas spend their entire day committed to the production of charas. It takes up to 50 buds to produce 10 grams of charas, meaning that it is hard work with a smaller reward than you’d think. It is nonetheless still considered some of the best hashish in the world and can cost up to $20 per gram to buy in Western countries.
