“There are 200,000 species of wild flowering plants on the planet, a majority in the plant kingdom and the supply of all modern day crops. There are only a handful of thousand of these plants that are eaten by humans, a handful of hundred of these have been  “domesticated” but give minor meals supplements. Merely a dozen of these wild flowering plants account for 80% of modern day meals production and far more than half the calories consumed by the world’s human population today”.

These numbers are wonderful by themselves, a testimony to our ancestors’ unbelievable botanical understanding and to the complexity of the oral traditions that transmitted such a vast quantity of “data” to generation immediately after generation the truth that no main new meals plant has been found considering the fact that 13,000 BC brings these details to an additional dimension altogether. This instinctive awareness of the flora is the supply of the Hashishin’s unconscious but deep understanding of the prospective of the Cannabis resin glands as transmitted via oral traditions considering the fact that the Dawn of Humanity. One particular of the oldest identified strategies to gather higher top quality dry resin described by Robert C. Clarke in his book “Hashish”, is basically to let the plants dry in a windless area, raised on rack more than a clean woven material, the drying resin heads will fall by themselves.

This form of collecting resin might look ridiculous and primitive it might not be the most effective but it is far from getting ridiculous when you recognize that a trichome is like a fruit, “custom made” by nature to fall by itself at maturity as described in the following quote by Paul G. Mahlberg and Eun Soo Kim in their analysis on Cannabis resin glands: “An abscission zone develops at the base of the (resin) head exactly where the stipe cells attach to the disc cells resulting in abscission of glands upon attaining maturity”.

Today’s preferred approach of sub-freezing trims to market the fall of mature resin glands by generating the stock of the gland brittle might look like a cutting edge approach but it is in fact redundant according to science. This instance embodies completely the want to study from the previous and the necessity to validate traditions with science. A Hashishin has the privilege to perform with the most wonderful compounds discovered on Earth, the cannabinoids, basic chemical structures produced of two molecules prevalent in the plant kingdom but special to the Cannabis plant resin glands.

The creation of the cannabinoids compounds happens via a biosynthetic transformation of terpenes and phenols by UV rays in the resin glands. The precise enzymes involved and the whole organic method of the cannabinoids synthesis has but to be found. Now this privilege really should come with responsibilities Cannabis resin is substantially far more than a psychoactive and recreational drug it is a “natural medicine that taps into how we perform biologically on a extremely deep level”.

A Western Hashishin right now demands to study from traditions and science to hold these responsibilities. We have to query and deeply study each and every step of regular and modern day strategies with accessible modern day science to boost and progress. A deep understanding of all elements of the resin glands, their composition and the chemistry behind the formation of the cannabinoids is mandatory to this progress.

We have in California cutting edge labs that are employed mostly to decide potency and cleanliness when there are so quite a few controversial strategies and unsubstantiated claims that really should be analyzed and scientifically tested.

My subsequent series of articles “The Science Behind” will be devoted to this quest for factual understanding. SC Labs, a recognized leader in top quality assurance and security testing for the Health-related Cannabis business in California, will do the supporting testing and analyses.
