(Cannabis Sativa) Hashish is a narcotic substance extracted from a tree called hemp that grows in tropical and temperate regions. Hashish is the dried liquid of the resinous substance. Cannabis is the most widespread drug trade and abuse drug in the world.

The history of hashish is similar to the history of the hemp plant, as hashish is made from the resin of the cannabis plant. For several thousand years, the cannabis plant has been used medicinally and its fibers are made into a strong fabric, but records of the use of cannabis appeared later. By about 900 AD, the use of hashish spread across the Arabian Peninsula. at that time  

   Hashish appeared in the stories of “One Thousand and One Nights,” also known as “Arabic Tales.” While the origin of many of these stories is difficult to date, many of the events appear to date back to the 10th century AD. Between 1000 and 1200 AD, the legend of the use of hashish arose by the “Assassins” group in Persia. Some scholars claim that the name “hashish” goes back to the word “Hashshashin,” a Nizari Ismaili sect that appeared in the eleventh century AD in Persia. Whether true or not, by 1300 AD, Marco Polo had heard stories of assassins using hashish and brought these stories back to Europe with him.

A historical depiction of women smoking hashish had by 1800 made its way to Europe, perhaps in part due to Napoleon's troops being exposed to hashish during his campaign into Egypt. At this point, European interest in cannabis began to grow steadily as one botanist or physician after another began to promote the uses of cannabis in various forms. In 1839, an Irish doctor stationed in India published the results of his use of hemp and hashish for a number of ailments.

It is considered an effective anticonvulsant. By 1840, French physician Louis-Hubert Roche, who had spent part of his life in Egypt, was using cannabis to treat illness. A few years later, literary figures in Paris, such as Charles Baudelaire and Victor Hugo, were experimenting with cannabis. For five years, several well-known writers and one doctor studied the effects of the drug. The doctor, Jacques-Joseph Moreau de Tours, was a friend of Hubert Roche. He conducted extensive studies on the use of cannabis on animals and humans and decided that it would be a good treatment for psychiatric practice. Other doctors soon followed these examples. Cannabis shipments to Europe have increased. During the second half of the nineteenth century, the popularity of hemp and hashish continued to grow, with a few practitioners warning of the potential danger associated with their use. Pharmaceutical companies in Europe and finally the United States began manufacturing various preparations from the cannabis plant, including extracts and tinctures.

Hashish is the most commonly used addictive substance and is the king of all tables, weddings and special occasions for those who are financially capable or even of average status. They imagine that it is a source of joy and happiness and that joys are not complete without it. This is what we see in the events and weddings that are held. Its spread is due to its cheap price compared to other types of drugs, along with the ease of taking it without complications, in addition to the social legacy that makes consuming cannabis merely a tool to improve the mental and psychological mood. With the illusion that consuming cannabis increases a man’s sexual ability while prolonging the duration of sexual intercourse or sexual intercourse  

Cannabis is considered a hallucinogenic substance and causes psychological addiction only, not real physical addiction, due to the lack of withdrawal symptoms. It increases the ignition of the five senses, always to the desired side, with increased enjoyment of the taste of food and music, along with some excessive sexual hallucinations. And creating an excessive sense of euphoria with laughter for trivial reasons. The user loses his true awareness of time and place, as minutes pass as if they were hours, and the lack of estimation of distances, and this is one of the causes of accidents on the roads.

 As the given dose increases, the user loses the feeling of euphoria and is replaced by an opposite feeling that ranges from sadness to anger to paranoia, bouts of excessive anger increase, and the appetite for food, especially sugar, increases. With dilated pupils, this helps in medical diagnosis. And increased heart rate. With some chest infections. As men continue to take it, it reduces the level of male testosterone, decreases sperm numbers, and disturbs their movements. As for women, it causes menstrual irregularity and ovulation failure.
