Slightly different is hash oil. Hash oil is the oily extract of the marijuana plant mixed with a solvent. Both hashish and hash oil have a high THC content, however hash oil has the highest content, generally ranging from 20-60%. Hash oil is light sensitive and needs to be kept in dark colored containers.
Hashish can be put in pipes and smoked, added to tobacco or marijuana , or added to food like brownies and eaten. Hashish and hash oil produce euphoria and other similar effects to marijuana however the effect is stronger. Pleasurable effects of hashish can range from 2 to 4 hours.
