Hash oil is known to be much more potent because it’s a concentrated form of cannabis oil. Just by taking an extremely small amount of hash oil will get you buzzed AF because hash oil contains higher amounts of THC. This means it can get users very high very fast, which may not be a good idea for novice marijuana users. Hash oil is also known as honey oil because of its golden color. Like cannabis oil, it also has medicinal uses for relieving pain, uplifting your mood, and reducing stress. It can be used to make balms or edibles but hash oil can also be smoked, vaped, or dabbed.
Hash oils can be applied topically to provide relief from sore muscles and is also popularly used by patients who are suffering from serious, life-threatening conditions thanks to its medicinal value. Hash oil is effective in helping to improve moods as well as stress and pain relief. Hash oil is known to make consumers get high very quickly, which is why it tends to be more popular with a younger crowd who want to get a buzz in a short amount of time.

One of the top reasons why people love hash oil is that it’s extremely potent. On average, the bud you smoke holds at around 10-15% cannabinoid concentration (although creative growers have pushed some strong strains near 50% THC or CBD).
Hash oil, on the other hand, ranges from 60% to almost 90% THC or CBD depending on the original strain used in the extraction process. Why are the percentages so much higher in hash oil? Because it’s a concentrate that contains trichomes and very little else.
When you smoke your bud, you get the trichomes (cannabinoids), but you also get a lot of extra plant matter in the process. This dilutes the results somewhat because there’s extra “stuff” in the smoke you inhale.
The extra “stuff” you get while smoking doesn’t make a whole lot of difference in the end experience for most people. You’ll still get plenty high. But with hash oil, because it’s so much more potent (no extra “stuff”), you’ll need less to achieve the same results.
