These were acetylated after removal of the tetrahydropyranyl (THP)

may produce a grade

It is wise to note that the Potency of a plant depends on a
number of factors. It should be the goal of every grower to produce a
potent, high grade, product. Zero Zero is also a 'western' concept
derived from hash types that come from Morocco.
Figure 1.11 - This picture shows some hash being made. The powderlike
substance is the collection of trichomes from the plant. This
powder will eventually be solidified to make a bar of hash.

Female plants produce resin glands (Figure 1.12 and 1.14).
Some of these glands may have lots of resin but are not very potent.
Other plants may have little resin but are very potent. Optimal growth
gives rise to a plant that has lots of resin and is very potent. Resin
glands are produced all over the female flowers and new leaves. They
can be seen clearly with the use of a magnifying aid. These resin
glands are correctly called Trichomes.

look on the plant. Notice the ball shaped tips. These contain
cannabinoids. Photograph by Joop Jumas.

what gives this bud her frosty look. Picture by Chimera.
Resin can be rubbed off the bud using the fingers and then
rolled into the palms to create small balls of hand rubbed hashish. It is
within these glands that one is to find the main concentration of
produced cannabinoids and THC. When a plant is in full flowering the
resin gland can explode or break dropping resin down onto the leaves
below. This can also give the leaves their shiny frosty potent look
during flowering. Towards the bottom of the plant are located the fan
leaves. These leaves are generally large and collect most of the light
for plant growth. Because these leaves are far away from the top of the
plant, which produce the most amount of resin glands and buds, they
collect the least amount of resin and are not very potent. It is best to
consider separating these fan leaves from the rest of the plant after
harvest because these leaves will not give you the best quality high.

We should now have an idea as to what we are looking for in
terms of a good quality smoke. We are looking for non-pollinated
female plants that have flowered, producing lots of buds with resin
glands that contain high levels and amounts of THC. We are also
looking for plants that have been well cured and processed in a way
that allows us to sample the full flavor, smell and taste of the plant.
One must also be aware that some plants are very potent and can
literally knock one’s socks off. This is where taste comes into play.
Some people like plants that give a head high but do not cause one to
fall asleep. Other people like plants that give a down effect and cause
the body to become less responsive to stimuli. The body d
