what do you mean by block pollen?

If it's black hash, then you can certainly combine it with chocolate - just mix the two on a very low heat. it's easy to burn both chocolate and hash, so you might want to use a pan on top of another pan full of heated water, so that steam heats the chocolate/hash mix, instead of a flame or a hot element.

t's easier and quicker (both in preparation and effect) to smoke hash. Eating hash will use up more for a good dose, and should last a lot longer

Okay, hash is hash.

It all works well when eaten, as long as it's not the super-hard imitation hash known as 'soap bar' or 'chernobyl', which contains almost no cannabis resin.

Does the hash you're planning to cook with do anything when you hold a lighter flame about 1mm from it?

If it's worth eating or smoking, you should see some sort of oil rise to the surface and begin bubbling. As a general rule, the more it bubbles and the clearer the oil, the better the hash is.

Soap bar and other non-hash never bubbles, it just turns black, or becomes easy to crumble.

Actually, that's another good test, most decent hash doesn't become easier to put into a joint when it's heated - it becomes even more sticky and hard to handle. Really good hash often needs a few minutes in the freezer to make it brittle and easier to break up.

The word 'pollen' is often used to describe Moroccan hash, but it's a confusing term, because real pollen is the yellow dust produced only by male flowers.

Since female resin glands can look like a similar kind of yellow powder when shaken from the plant, the name 'pollen' was applied to hash and remains with us. But no hash is actually made from pollen.

To an English-speaker, 'polm' is possibly a better (though still not accurate)  term for that type of hash, though it could cause the same confusion among speakers of other Germanic languages.

i have just got some stuff that my mate called Crystal block. It looks kinda like soap but i think it is made from pollen. Not resin. I Always thought hash was the resin from the plant. Its is a Hard compressed block but you can snap it and Ive been told you Cant burn it with a lighter. Looks alot better and smells nicer that soap. Ive had super polm in dam and it was bendy. This stuff looks nice. Hopefully try it at the weekend and update.
